30 days is a reasonable time to try something new or work at something specific. For me it’s about having fun, cultivating mindfulness, setting intentions and following through. You can see some of last year’s process over on the 30 day challenge side bar. i didn’t even mention November which for me was to photograph life as i do but using all manual settings and a fixed 50mm lens - i’m still shooting that way and that’s the cool thing about these challenges is that some of it sticks and evolves. Thara and i have a new list which will likely shift to suit our moods as we go. Miss Bethana is on board with the knitting this month and Clo sent word and wonder and she’s playing along also. Here’s the current line up for 2013 - join in should you so choose!
January - 30 days of knit and purl and random crochet too.
February - deep cleaning 1 corner at a time
March - natural dye experiments
April - 30 days of drinking greens or some other cleansing focus.
May - a month of self portraits
June - homesteading projects ie. sprouting, soap making, composting, food preservation, cheese making… maybe these could each have their own month but some of them will run into days maybe even weeks…? a dabblers way of finding a new passion perhaps?
July - picnics and camping
August - forage and storage
September - 30 days of being (extra) neighborly
October - hand making gifts for future festivities
November -snail mail
December - small gatherings.
