61 Days Later!

icad # 61 v

Phew! We made it. An index card every single day from 1st June to 31st July.

To check out all our icads, you can look at my Flickr set here:


The boys are keen to continue producing index card art, but I have struggled the last few weeks to find the time or to feel inspired, so I think I may just stop, give myself a pat on the back for completing the challenge, and move on to other creative pursuits, like my poor, neglected quilting hobby ;-). Tammy is continuing throughout August with a Daily Paper Prompt, which you can read about here. I may dip in and out of this.

It’s been fun but I’m ready to stop now!!

    Wasn’t it one of the “Liverpool Poets” who coined “Mind how you grow”?

  4. Janet says:

    Yea! You did it…I knew you would. I’m off now to check out all of them together on flickr.

    Yay, we did it! Thanks again for inspiring me to get on board this time around. It’s been great fun for me! How neat that your boys want to continue…a great creative outlet for them. And so many ways to use it for homeschooling, I would think!

  6. Go us! It is a great feeling to say I have completed it. I am finishing the index cards for now, there are some other things I want to spend some time on. I love that your boys want to continue! I have to say though, this morning I was thinking about what I was going to put on my index card, so maybe I will continue…who knows! 🙂

      Lol, I seem to have had a load of ideas for index cards today, now that I don’t “have” to do one!! Maybe I will do the occasional card with the boys.

  7. This is just amazing!! And how great for your boys participating. Now that I have seen what is possible with flickr I may post all mine up there, too!! I am glad you feel inspired to move on to other “happy habits” and that your boys are going to carry on. There is something about DOing it every day that transcended making the cards. So glad to “met” you and hope to see you in the Great BEyond ICAD2!!
    YAY for completing!!

  8. Congratulations on sticking it through. Hopefully the boys’ enthusiasm will keep you going. Or Tammy’s wonderful prompts…
