Crying over spilt milk.

Success and Failure often go together. Since the beginning of this personal challenge I have accomplished a variety of things and had a chance to take the mystery out of some of them.

Day 284 was not a mystery removing day. 

It turns out that my go...

Tied and tangled

Today was all about satisfying curiosity and finally figuring out how to tie, weave and braid a very

specific type of bracelet. 

I have wanted to learn this forever. When I started to weave Byzantine chain mail I was also intrigued by corded weaves that l...

Hoppy wort

Day 282 was almost therapeutic as I spent most of the morning and afternoon making my very first home brewed beer.

Science in combination with my 365 day adventures seems to be working out. My very wonderful friend who has home brewing experience led me down t...

Watch it wiggle

Today is an all day adventure in patience and I won't know success or failure for many long hours.

Day 281 is all about making edible drinking cups.

So it glows

It's day 280 and I'm making messes again. This time I wanted to try something I saw on social media. 

I'm not jumping off a roof, although I did jump from a rock wall on day 277.

They actually do glow in the jar.

Befo...

Braking 

My adventure on day 278 involved an impact wrench, rotors and new brakes.

I have never worked on a car's brakes. I can change oil and tires but when it comes to taking them apart I have always been apprehensive. 

I don't own the tools required for this job so my...

Getting high

It’s day 277 and I have finally accomplished a high ropes course. 

My experience started at Aerial Adventures in Lake Geneva. The place has a Climbing tower, free fall, bubble soccer, zip line and a high ropes course. I was only interested in the high ropes...

It all happened by accident

I had no idea when I popped the package this morning that doodle tops were going to be my experience. It was all pretty innocent and I was reserving them until one of those late nights when I had nothing done. 

What happened at 6:30 am tu...

Fluxed

I started this particular experience in January and although it isn't framed my work is complete.

On day 275 I learned to solder stained glass.

If you've been following you will remember that I started on day 124 just learning to cut glass. In my head I was going t...
