yearofmaking ebook cover

I’ve talked about it all year, my #yearofmaking. About how surprisingly amazing and transformative it’s been to make something, anything, every day.

Earlier this month, I talked with Miriam Felton, the person who started #yearofmaking back in 2013. We got a little… enthusiastic about it. Because though it’s simple, a year of making is also pretty freaking awesome.

Though a few people also started doing a year of making this year, many more have hinted at maybe sorta wanting to do it. Which means that, obviously, worksheets are in order (click thumbnails below to embiggen).

Year of Making: A Grand Adventure Through 365 Daily Acts of Creation is a 35-page ebook that chronicles all the wonderful things you get when you commit to making something every day. Featuring nine worksheets to help you figure out what you already enjoy making and what you fantasize about making if only you had (um, made) the time, and to help you keep track of what you do make over the course of a year, this ebook is like a jumpstart to a project that may just end up being the most amazing project you ever take on.

Beginning on January 1st isn’t necessary or even important, but it seemed like a good idea to get this all together in time for the new calendar year.

You’ve been thinking about maybe doing a year of making, haven’t you? Well, there’s nothing to do now but do it. I’ll be doing it again, obviously, starting my second year on January 1st. Please join in! The more the merrier.

The only rule is to make something (even the tiniest part of something) every day for a year. Snap a photo and share it online tagged #yearofmaking.
