 How To Start - And Finish - A 365 Day Project 

Learn how to start—and more importantly, finish—your very own 365 day project with Cynthia Koo of Wonton In A Million. This workshop is for you if you’ve always wanted to learn how to draw, to start a blog, to build a business while holding down a full time job—essentially, if you have a big dream that seems daunting to accomplish in the midst of a busy life. The 365 Day framework is what I used to build Wonton In A Million while holding down a full-time job (www.wontoninamillion.com). It is what I used to learn how to draw, going from simple stick figures to elaborate pencil portraits (drawinginayear.tumblr.com). It is what I used to build a daily blogging habit that led to various opportunities like syndication to popular online publications.

Imagine what YOU could build if you worked on something a little bit every day for the next year. So if you’ve ever wanted to learn a new skill, undertake a huge creative endeavor, or get better at a talent you already have, this workshop will help you to accomplish your goal, a little bit at a time. I can't wait to see what you create.

And of course, you'll need ALL the (WIAM) swag to help you stay on track with your goal.

Loaded Planner Bookmark: During this workshop we will teach you how to make the bookmark and supply you with all the items that you need to follow along. 

We will also show you what items you can use to put into your Loaded Planner Bookmark* and, time permitting, we will be making some of the items. 

At the end of the workshop you will have made your very own Loaded Bookmark and you will take away lots of ideas on what you can use to load it up. 

Our workshop is being sponsored by Michael’s. Therefore, you will not need to bring any supplies to this one. We will have everything that you need to make your Loaded Planner Bookmark. 

*The picture is of a loaded planner bookmark made my Tammy Bishop from Macee Leigh. The bookmark that we make during the workshop will be a Winter Theme and may not contain all items shown in this picture.
