Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

poeticsong725SUPER EASY

I mixed it by eyeballing it, which everyone SWEARS is a horrible thing and to never do it, but I had no problems. It worked perfectly on the first try, and everything went perfect.
I popped them out of the mold like ice cubes once they reached a soft cure status, which was about 24 hours later…then let them sit on a piece of wax paper in a cupboard for another 48 hours to achieve a hard cure. Now they are super hard, super shiny, and AWESOME. Now I just need to wait for my fiance to bring me home some 300 grit sand paper from work so I can file the edges down where the lip of the mold gave a funky edge to each piece. Then I need to figure out a way to add findings to the tops of them to turn them into charms for necklaces. Maybe I’ll make a keychain out of one or two of them.
There were a couple of air bubbles in a few of them, but I noticed more so with the ones with real dried flowers in them, so maybe it’s a chemical reaction. The ones with beads had a couple, but not as many, so I don’t know if it’s chemical and an issue or just coincidence. But it was my first attempt, and it was 95% effective, which is an awesome number for a first try with very little preparation! 2 years ago

iridogorgiaI really really want to do this.

I’ve been stockpiling interesting glitters, sprinkles and small charms. All I need is the space to work in. Living with my boyfriend and his dog in a 300sqft apartment does not really lend the space one needs for doing something as delicate as this. I’m moving either in July or sooner, so hopefully I’ll get the space to finally start doing this! 2 years ago

galactickimToo Toxic

So I did some research into making resin jewelry. It looks relatively simple, and would be something that I would enjoy. However, it is quite toxic. I don’t want to bring the fumes into my home. Even if I wear protective equipment, what about my husband and cats? What about fumes lingering?

I would like to perhaps try this someday, but in the right environment. For instance, and outdoor space in the summer. Or a well ventilated workshop, which I don’t have.

So this is going off my list, but I feel good that I’ve researched it. And, there are lots of cute resin things to buy on Etsy. So for now, that will suffice. 2 years ago
