I find I am missing the creativity and discipline of making something every day. The last time I did was in 2007 (the birth of this blog in fact, which makes this a five year anniversary of sorts) and it is high time to do it again. The biggest issue in committing to something like this is to decide what I can make more than 300 of. I mean, I still have postcards from 2007 languishing around the house. But the knowledge and skills I gained are worth a lot, and I think it is high time to do it again.
So: a circle a day, for 2012.
- Circles will fit into the Trader Joe's tins (about 3" in diameter) and be attached to ribbons for each month.
- Each circle must have a front, back and finished edge.
- Each month will have a color, and a second constraint to be determined.
- When the family goes on vacation, so do I.
Month colors, and second theme if I know:
- January – red & thread
- February – PINK
- March – black and gray
- April – yellow
- May – green
- June – orange
- July – anything & ocean
- August – blue & feather
- September – brown & leaf
- October – purple & scary
- November – metallics
- December - white & old
Other goals for 2012? Call my mother more, ride more horses, tell people more often how fond of them I am. Those should all contribute to the general happiness quotient.
Out with 2011, in with 2012! let's see what we can make of it!
