I will do the following in the month of June:
- Create a scrapbook page
- plant a garden/pot
- Do a character collage
- Finger painting
- Write a short story
- Guitar lesson 1 - 2 and 3
- Make paper jewelry
- Recycle costume jewelry by creating something. It's a surprise.
- and Celebrate!!!
I know it's technically not 30 items, but I want to be realistic here and some things on this list will take more than a day, or two, to finish.
Because the first day of something new is always the most exciting, I created a picture frame. Not just any picture frame, but a picture frame to remind me that I only need to visualize whatever fits inside the frame when I write. It is through these small framed connections that a story is written. I borrowed the idea from Anne Lamott.
So here it is...unveiled. I also attached a link to the youtube video I used as inspiration. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MY8wvklr9is&feature=related
The boarder is held together by popsicle sticks and decorated with tightly wound stips of magazine paper.
I chose a random scene, which can be changed, to remind me that there is something there.
This pic was my attempt at a close up. I added small gems in the middle of the wound strips.
Okay, I admit that this took me longer than anticipated, and I had help from my son. The others WILL NOT be as
stressful time consuming. The idea is to have fun!
