A bird a week challenge

I realized last year that I seem to do well and enjoy having challenges for myself. For example, I started the year with "a month of earrings" where for  February and March I made an earring a day, then I had the master muse challenges every couple of months..... I like the "pressure", if you can call it that - to make and complete something even if sometimes it can get frustrating.

So a thought that has been running through my head this last month or so is to challenge myself to a "A Bird a Week".  The "bird a week" idea means that I have a goal to create a different bird - in any media I like - each week.  I find birds so inspiring and I would like to try making birds in different media and thus this challenge would be an opportunity to "study" birds in more depth, looking at different species or styles etc.


What would be even better would be if others joined in too........how about it? You know you birdie types out there....Wanna join the challenge and create a bird a week? See if we can come up with 52 different birds in 2011? Let me know... We can set up a Flickr group.... and share our creations.  It would be fun.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Oh oh, better start thinking about this week's birdie now......
