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.

HavanaCata fundraiser for CPAWS (Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society)

I attended an awards reception at the Museum of Nature, organized by CPAWS, and I donated a small encaustic painting of a burrowing owl for their silent auction. It was bid on and won by a man who later emailed me to tell me how much he’s enjoying it. So nice of him, and to have donated to a good cause! 2 years ago

HavanaCatSold three encaustics!

I participated in an outdoor art event last Saturday, called Art on the Farm, and the registration fees are used by the Friends of the Farm to keep doing their good work. About 50 artists participated. I sold three paintings, and so did my friend who exhibited with me. We are both donating part of the proceeds to the Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge. They have just taken in an unwanted blind horse, and an unwanted mare and her foal. This will help with their vet bills, food, etc. :) 3 years ago

HavanaCatwildlife refuge and endangered species

I’ve been working with encaustics (pigmented beeswax mixed with a damar resin for hardness) and I thought, why not create a series of animal pieces and donate part of the proceeds to the Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge, and then another series of endangered animals in Canada, and donate part of the sales to CPAWS, or another worthy wildlife preservation non-profit organization. I’ll be taking part in a fundraiser on August 20th, so I’ll have about 8 of these pieces alongside my regular abstract landscapes, hope lots of people come and buy! Here’s a pic of one of the encaustics, called ‘The Gift’ 3 years ago
