It’s been ten and a half months since my first Project 365 ended. I took a picture of my feet every day for a year, if you recall. It was fun, but I was glad to see it end. Now, after a nice break, I’m jumping back into the 365 ring with a new series: Mornings. I know this has been done before, and quite well at that, but I so enjoyed the Month of Mornings I did throughout September, that it seemed a real no-brainer to me that this is what I would do for my next year-long project.
If I learned anything from my Month of Meals, though, it is that I don’t like being too strict with the photo requirements. That month, I took thirty or so shots of my dinner plate, all from the same angle, and I got bored about halfway through.
“Mornings” seems like a broad enough theme to me, that boredom shouldn’t come too soon. But if it does, I have no problem shaking things up and doing some afternoons or evenings. For me, the important part of this project is not the theme so much as the daily-ness of it.
So welcome to Day One of 365. I decided not to wait until January, because there is something so photogenic about October mornings, I think. I feel so inspired. I don’t imagine that dreary January mornings are going to be as appealing, and so I want to work up some momentum before I get there.
I’m really looking forward to this project, and I’m sure that those of you who are also Flickr friends of mine are relieved that I have chosen to subject you to something more appealing than my feet for the next year!
Two random things I wanted to mention:
- A couple of you took me up on my napkin-making offer a few days ago, but I didn’t collect your email address and don’t know how to get in touch with you. (duh! my bad.) Please, if you still would like a set of napkins, email me so I know who you are!
- The latest Craft Hope project is up, and I can’t wait to get started – I love making lap quilts at this time of the year, and it will be fun to look through my stash to see what I can put together for a child in need.
I want to tell you to Have a Nice Weekend, because my brain wants to think it is Friday. My poor, deluded brain. How about we all just Have a Nice Thursday instead?
