An Explanation

We, the Jackson Clan of Chaos, are going to try the "Make Something 365" challenge put forth by Noah Scalin:  Choose a theme or medium, then make something every day for a year.

Brief background from his site
"My name is Noah Scalin and I made a Skull-A-Day for a year. I started by making an orange paper skull on June 4th, 2007 and posting it online saying, 'I'm making a skull a day for a year.' I made my 365th skull on June 2nd, 2008 (and even posted a bonus skull the day after since it was a leap year!)."

I found Noah's book 365: A Daily Creativity Journal online, ordered it, and became inspired to give this challenge a try.  Today, I introduced the idea to the boys and quickly found cautious enthusiasm, heavily sprinkled with subject dissension.

So because we couldn't all agree on a subject, we're going to start two projects:  365 Baseballs-a-Day and 365 Robots-a-Day.

The boys, headed by my slightly obsessive son Rylan, will be in charge of the baseball project (  And, I, the definitely obsessive mother, will be in charge of this robot project, while filtering/incorporating the offspring's input.

To date, general follow-through has not been our strong point, so feel free to verbally accost, forcefully tackle, or otherwise make us guilt-ridden and, therefore, accountable.

And so it begins . . .
