The Number 100 Craft


Last night my 6 year old niece Grey called me for help with a school project. The assignment was to collect 100 of something, anything, and then assemble it somehow, anyhow. I’m tickled/touched/honored that I’m the go-to reference for my nieces and nephews when it comes to crafts.

After talking her out of gluing 100 M&Ms to a piece of poster board, we settled on a mosaic of sorts, made from fragments of magazine pages. So Grey cut 100 slivers and grouped them by color to form a rainbow. This is Grey at work…


Grey’s project came just one day after I found this blog called A Collection A Day, 2010, where the writer is posting a collection, either a photo or a drawing, every day in the year 2010. As an obsessive collector myself (owls, antique compacts, vintage tags), I’m totally obsessed with her pursuit. The photo of clothespin above, is from Day 6.
