As promised last month, here’s my photos for May. Click to view larger
Just over a month to go and that’s me finished for another year. See you at the end
I’ve done this photo challenge a few times now and love looking back over previous years. What is it? It’s a photo project where you take a photo of something that makes YOU happy for 100 days in a row. You can share them on your socials or keep it private. Read more about the project here
I like to share mine. In previous years I shared on my personal Insta account but this year I’m just curating them in the Collect app then I’ll share them a month at a time here on the blog. I started this year’s project on the 26th of March (which I have done on previous years) and will finish on the 3rd of July.
Here’s March to April (click for larger)
I’ll b back at the end of May to share the next batch
I’m giving The 100 Day Project another go. I’m planning to blog each week. It may end up being less frequently than that but it’ll be on my Insta.
What is The 100 Day Project?
#The100DayProject is a free art project that takes place online. Every spring, thousands of people all around the world commit to 100 days of exploring their creativity.
Anyone can join (yes, that means you!). The idea is simple: choose a project, do it every day for 100 days, and share your process on Instagram with the hashtag #The100DayProject.
This year I’m giving myself a very loose structure by giving each week a theme and working around that theme for 7 days.
My themes are (in no particular order)….
Day 15 and 16 was more sorting and finding stuff I thought I’d lost, like unopened Teresa Collins journals
After debating over it (& being told by Kristin to just do it!), I spent day 17 tearing all the bits out of A book that takes it’s time. And making plans for how I’ll use them.
Day 18 was working on more 30 days of doodles. These are so cute. I’m looking forward to using them in my bujo.
Day 19 and I’m back into my Daily pages. I love doing these and really need to make this a habit again/
Day 20 was spent doing some digital colouring on my iPad while watching telly.
30 lists catch up was the order of the day for day 21. I’ve nearly finished my first 30 Lists book. I *may* be able to fit my September lists in it but we’ll see when it arrives
Day 8 was spent on a bit of a catch up so I spent a couple of hours catching up on some more Project Life, as well as listening to the Crafty Ass Female podcast.
Day 9 I decided to draw up a couple of pages in my bullet journal and do the 30 Days of Doodle in pen.
Day 10 I got up until day 9 of the 30 Days of Doodles done in pen. I’m sad that my pen unicorn isn’t as good as my digital one.
Day 11 was a 30 Days of Lists catch up
Day 12 was something techy and working on my course teaching me how to build WordPress themes from scratch
Day 13 spent listening to one of my favourite crafty podcasts – Crafty Ass Female.
For Day 14 I decided to finally tackle the mess that is my craft supplies in my bedroom. I’ve got a plan now so it is making things so much easier.
Days 1 to 7
I started off my 31 days by making myself a new notebook for my Morning/Daily pages. It’s just a bunch of A5 paper folded in half and stitched together.
Day 2 was spent working on my Project Lens 2019. It’s my album for the year a mix of Project Life and the Awesome Ladies Lens prompts.
Day 3 was a spread in my daily pages book. A Currently card from RUKristin and a little rainbow unicorn for mardi gras.
Day 4 I decided to start working through 30 Days of Doodles with The Petite Planner. Working on it digitally.
Day 5 is some Project Life catch up for the eldest.
I missed day 6 and 7 due to a shocking headache that didn’t let me do much for long
On to the final stretch – days 21 to 31…
Day 21 and I had a bit of Project Life catch up. I am so behind at printing these out and getting them in their respective albums.
Day 22 was reading and looking for little ideas to make for Christmas gifts.
Day 23. A little blogging
Spent Day 24 researching December Daily ideas.
Day 25 and I planned how I was going to catch up and finish 3 years of Journal Your Christmas.
I finish off 3 years of Journal Your Christmas is one sitting on Day 26. Why hadn’t I thought of this before?
Day 27 and I did a heap of baking for afternoon tea when we got to meet my nephew.
Day 28 was working on November bullet journal pages.
Day 29 – more notes for Crafty Ass Female podcast book club
Day 30 – it’s Bob Ross birthday marathon time on Twitch
Finally I spent Day 31 working on my Book of Me pages.

I’m going to give this a go again this year. You can read all about it over at Kellie’s blog
This year I am aiming to do something creative each day for 31 minutes. I’ll be blogging it here each week and sharing daily on my nightwolf_scraps Insta account.
(and then you don’t press publish so on we go….)
Loving this little daily jolt of creativity. So far this month I’ve made notebooks, cards, gardened and lots more.
Here’s my first 10 days
Day 1. New handmade insert for my long term bullet journal collections. Love having all my long term collection in one place instead of spread out over various journals. The original plan was to laser etch the cover but didn’t work out like I wanted so I just drew the cover.
Day 2. This came about while looking for something else on Pinterest. Now I have all my washi swatched in one place so I can check that out before rummaging through my stash
Day 3 was spent catching up on a card class I missed. One card and a pillow box.
Day 4 another homemade TN insert, this time for my Listers Got to List pages.
Day 5 – 3 more cards for the card class. 2 cards from the class and the pillow box front became a card.
Day 6 was spent gardening and planting some seeds for our summer garden.
Day 7 was binge watching craft classes on Bluprint during their free watch week.
Day 8 – the latest episode of Crafty Ass Female podcast.
Day 9 and Day 10 was spent having a big Book of Me catch up. I need to share that soon too, didn’t realise I hadn’t shared any of that project since February…. oops
