I was chatting with @elisejoy yesterday about #the100dayproject and I told her that I wasn't sure if I would do it again. But it's all I've thought about today. The truth is, I sold 70+ of my paintings last year and made just a couple hundred dollars shy of $10,000. The other truth is that it took A LOT of time, thousands of bucks for supplies and I spent A LOT less time working in @thewonderjam (which leads to less projects and those pay much better than me selling 70 paintings). Ps I have no problem talking about money. ✌🏽🤑 Taking on the challenge sounds exciting but if I do it, it'll be different. Not sure how, but I'll keep you posted. Anyone else taking on the challenge this spring?? #alliepalmakes

  • karin.mansbergLoved reading about your 100 day project! I sell on Big Cartel and received the story in my email newsletter. Last year I did a couple of short sketchbook / illustration projects for 50 days just to keep the art practice going as daily routine. I might take the 100 day challenge at some point and see what happens!
