Announcing a 52 Week Project

I've always wanted to do a 1 year project, and I've decided to start one today, which is a 52nd anniversary for me.
The project is that I am going to produce a new piece of art weekly that I will make available on etsy in a limited print format. I am going to sell only 10 of each signed and numbered print in the 5x7 size for $5. Each print will be available starting on Sunday by 12 midnight. Right now, I am going to offer free shipping in the US, but that might change. I will charge $2 shipping for overseas buyers. As each one sells, I will list again until the 10 are gone.
In this year of mostly happy chaos in my home life, I'm thinking that having a required project will keep me doing art, which helps me keep sane and makes me a happier person to be around. It also will give my followers a chance to collect my art at an affordable price.
I might also sell the original, don't know about that yet.
Look on my etsy shop tonight for a new print.
***update*** I've decided to do 12 of each print, once a month I will hold a drawing for the prints for that month and one person who comments on my blog will win all 4 or 5 prints(depending on how many Sundays are in each month). At the end of the year, next April 19th, one commenter will win all 52 prints. So only 10 will be for sale of each edition, but two will be given away.
