One Year, Two Projects
I began this year with plans to complete two year long projects, and am happy to say as we approach the end of the year, I have followed through on both. The first was the 52 Project with Jodie, a photo of my little man once a week, every week in 2014. I am so happy I took part in this project, looking back at the photos, seeing my little man's growth through the year...it is pretty amazing. I have plans to create a little photo book with the photos, and will definitely be creating a few extra books for grandparents and Godparents.
The second project was 52 Weeks of Mail, and began a new ritual for me early in the year. Every week this year I have sent mail to someone. Most times it was a card with a little note inside, sometimes a few nature treasures were added, and other times little surprise packages with homemade goodies. I took part in this project simply because it is a pleasure, a simple pleasure, to sit down with a cup of tea, pen in hand, and write a note to a friend. It has been a project I have thoroughly enjoyed, and out of it, I have connected in new ways with many of you, and that has been wonderful.
As I approach the end of both projects, my thoughts have been turning to the New Year and the projects I will take on. Both of these projects brought joy to me, and I will definitely be continuing them in the New Year. I have a few other thoughts in mind for year long projects in 2015, but I haven't committed yet. When I do, you will be the first to know.
Did you take part in any year long projects in 2014? Do you have plans to do so in 2015?
P.S. If you like to receive little surprises in the mail be sure to email your address to me, I would love to send you a handwritten note in 2015.
