project spectrum

i know this is going to come as a shock to you guys, but here goes. i like to make stuff. always have. i have done this as a professional, a business owner, and/or a hobbyist in various forms all of my life. and here's the thing: i work best when given constraints within which to work. if i am left completely to my own devices, i sometimes just look at all my art and craft supplies and end up flailing around in all the possibilities. i am far more creative when told that i have to match something or if i can only use a certain palette or that it has to stay below a certain cost or that i have a time limit. so, after reading lolly's blog post about it and a conversation with THK, i have decided to join project spectrum this year. the idea, at least as i see it, is to break yourself out of a creative rut by focussing on particular colors for two-month blocks of time. this sounds perfect for me, and i already have a bunch of ideas floating around in my head. i kind of can't wait. the project begins on february 1st, so stay tuned for more.
