I’ll have a new project to share soon. Having spent the better part of this last week feverish and swollen and snotty, posing for pictures did not rank high on my agenda. Besides, I’ve already shared a “Thinking Ahead” project.
I knew going into this project that it was going to be a hard sell. The majority of my readership consists of mothers. Convincing mothers to take the time to make things for themselves? Talk about themselves? Think about themselves? Post pictures of themselves?? I smile and nod at all the lovely women I know who tell me that they plan on joining in, knowing that most of them will not get around to it. And that’s ok. We all know how it goes! But every week I get emails and comments from people telling me that they have been inspired by these posts. And there always seems to be an interesting dialog going in the comments. It’s a good thing. I want to hear more voices and see more people get involved. I’m very grateful to those of you who have bravely shared your projects thus far!
To answer a couple of questions and just as a reminder…..
* Anyone can join this community! Male, female, young, old, all are welcome! In my opinion, the more diversity, the better. This whole project is about discovering and sharing your own unique sense of style and no two people are going to have the same thoughts or projects to share, which is the true beauty in this.
* You do not have to post a project. You can share an idea, thoughts about fabric, inspiration, plans for the future, musings on self care and your own process of cultivating your own personal sense of style.
* You may add photos to the link up from a blog, Facebook, Flickr and I believe, Instagram. If you’ve never done it before, the process is really quite simple. If anyone needs help with this, please feel free to contact me.
Our next challenge is July 25th – Luxury, now you know you want to get involved with that!
I am very excited about next week! As I mentioned at the start of all this, from time to time I plan on bringing in a guest blogger to talk about style, sewing/knitting, the process of self discovery and anything else that might come up along the way! My first guest is very near and dear to my heart, so I am hoping you will give her a particularly warm welcome!
And you? What are you working on/dreaming about/discovering this week?
