#12MonthsofDIY: Favourites and Some Reflections
Let’s start this post by saying, when I was asked to be part of the fun & magic of #12MonthsofDIY I was like this:
I high five-d the dogs even.
Well, for a few reasons.
1) I’ve been following each of these talented ladies for a long time. Most of us had never met IRL until September, but we follow each other on so many social media we’re like BFFs.
2) Each is so uniquely talented! I took each of them and their amazing skills as an opportunity to learn. Because of them, I am spending more time working on my photography, propping and vignettes, I am also trying my hand at more video and using new tools and techniques.
3) The challenge of each monthly theme was great for me. It forced me outside my comfort zone. But it also forced me to set some boundaries – like I wasn’t going to make something just to make it or finish the project. I wanted to challenge myself to only make things I would use, keep, and enjoy. Dare I say the word
practical? Nope. Pretend I didn’t say that, and don’t ever say that word around me (or my shoes!) again. Blech. Can’t believe I even typed it. But you know what I mean. I don’t want stuff for the sake of stuff. It’s Heathy-Kondo;)
4) I had a load of fun. I love each of the projects I completed, but the one I am most pleased with is (my very first one) the vinyl lettering above my home office door. Is it the lettering? Is it the glorious transom? Is it both? Who knows. All I know is, I love it.
