A Tail A Day. Raspberry Beret.

Raspberry Beret


So  "A Tail A Day" is something that has been on my mind for awhile, but I'm not so organized that I am beginning it and/or ending it on a specific date, or committing to do it for a set number of days or months... And, as of this writing, I am actually not quite sure WHY I am so compelled to pull this out of my bag of tricks NOW. I mean, Surtex is literally right around the corner. PLUS I have client work. PLUS I am in limbo on a couple awesome things. Plus, I have a day job. Yes folks, I've lost my marbs.

This is something I've wanted to do for a long time though. I own the domain name and have for at least a year, maybe two.. I just never got around to starting it. So I figure, I should begin, at least. And then, who knows. Roll with it.

The criteria is to post a piece of visual art to my blog every day, containing a character with a tail. It does not matter if it is a picture drawn with pencil, a completely finished piece of art, a photo of a hand shadow, or macaroni glued to a paper plate. It just must be a character with a tail. (And to add further wiggle room to this whole scenario, the tail does not even have to be showing! That's right: Close-ups with no tail are A-O.K.)

The "....A Day" part of the equation is really just there to just keep me uber-challenged. So, if I don't live up to the "a day" part, please forgive me. But I believe that just having "...A Day" in the title there will 1) inspire (taunt) me to post with a 'committed regularity' (if not actually EVERY DAY) and 2) it's plain catchy!

Other than that, there is NO rules. (Less rules, more fun.)

Wouldn't it be cool if I posted every actual day? Do you think I can do it?

Morning Kathy! Oh My you are so committed...or should I say you should BE committed! haha! (kidding) T thought a TAIL a day might be a "TALE" a day with a story....maybe a tail with a tale. ok, i may have had too much coffee....

Monica, smart lsdy! I am on the same page with that. Maybe I also had "TALE" in my mind too.. Because last night, as I was thinking about this, I realized that the ATAD posts are the perfect catalyst to tell different stories I want to tell. Not EVERY day, but some times I just can't help myself. :D

Well, earlier this year, I committed to making one quilt block a day, and sometimes I end up making all 7 for the week in the space of a couple days, but . . . so far I'm ahead, so just saying I'd do it has me more motivated. I think it's worth a shot, and you might actually be surprised how well it goes! Good luck.

Shelly that is so motivating! Big congratulations on your quilt blocks!! I am hoping this is will prove to be the perfect level of 'motivational' and 'flexibility' for me :D

Good for you, Shelly! I started a Person-a-Day project and it's completely petered out. I see you've kept up with your tails so good for you!
