Thing-a-Day NewNew Style

Thing-a-Day 2009 is now in full swing! If you are not familiar, it started as a class project at NYU's ITP [where I happen to have my masters :) ]. The gist of the project is for each participant to create one thing each day for one month. In order to make it an achievable goal, February was chosen since it's the shortest month and each 'thing' should take sometime between 30 and 60 minutes to complete.

It's quite amazing to see what people make in such a short amount of time. My favorite part is seeing how people break out of their 'usual' crafts. Several of our very own NewNew members are taking part in this challenge. Check out their thing-a-day pages for more projects!

It's a really fun way to get inspired during a less-than-inspiring time of year!
