Last week, as a part of Go Mighty‘s I Made This project, I used glitter and a paint brush to make a couple of Disco Dinosaurs. You rose to the #imadethis challenge by die-cutting, silkscreening, and engaging with power tools. Nice. Here are a few of my favorite things you posted on Go Mighty:
Elaine made something to replace that sock on your door knob. The G will get the job done, but if it’s really serious, go for letter F.
Elaine also shared these CMYK/RGB cards she made for two friends and graphic designers who are getting married.
Liz made these super quick, super simple, caramel apples and shared the recipe. Hungry.
Jenn made these to support Craft Hope. If you’re a knitter, a do-gooder, or both, Jenn shares her patterns and more about the project to knit warm things for orphans here.
Jen made these bookmark save the dates for her upcoming wedding. Clever.
More favorites from the project:
Samantha is making capes for the children in her life.
Jocelyn made something to show her support for Boston.
Amber faced her fear of flat meringue and made a banana pudding pie.
Sarah made a cake to remind her daughter of their life in Australia.
Lorien has kicked off a year long sewing project with this pug.
Tara made homemade pizza on the grill.
The winner of the limited edition polaroid camera is Bonnie Chan who has taken the first steps toward her goal of taking a piece of nostalgia and sewing it into a gown. Read her story here. Congrats, Bonnie! (Check your email.)
Our plan is to continue this project on Go Mighty throughout the summer. So, if you haven’t already, join in by sharing what you make with the tag #imadethis. We’re putting together a big box of awesome to be gifted to one participant when the season ends. More on that to come, and big thanks to those of you who played this time around.
Go Mighty is our Life List community for people who get it done. If you’re not a member yet, that makes no sense. Sign up, and we’ll send an invite your way within 24 hours.
Update on my song-a-day project: You guys were in two camps, loved it or wanted to shiv your laptop screen every time you saw one.
I’m continuing the project, because it makes me happy, but I hear those of you who thought it was overwhelming my other posts. Here’s my solution.
From now on, I’ll provide a link to the day’s song at the bottom of whatever I’m posting. If you’re on Spotify, you can automatically follow along daily by subscribing to that month’s playlist, which I keep updated. Once a month, I’ll post a roundup of that month’s songs, as well as the occasional playlist I make for whatever I’m up to. The May playlist will be done soon, and here’s the full playlist for April:
Go subscribe if you’d like to keep up, or check in on my daily posts for the song link at the bottom. As always, please let me know if you have suggestions. I’ve found a ton of my favorite songs that way.
After listening to 1,000 new songs as part of my Life List, I decided to post a new song on Mighty Girl every day for a year. For this project, I’m focusing on songs produced in the last year or two, so if you’re looking for new music, put this in your ears.
I added a new goal on Go Mighty. My inner seventh-grader is mortified. Nobody make eye contact.
