So I’ve started a new project, and I’m hoping to stick with this one. I know last year I started a 365 Photo project, and stopped at day 150 or so. I’m hoping to get through all of this year.
Everyone’s always telling me how down I look or how sick I am or how crappy I seem whenever I’m out or even at work. Well, I decided that I need to find at least one thing a day that makes me smile, no matter how simple it is. I need motivation and happiness to come back into my life and decided to come up with this while I was at Michael’s Arts and Crafts today.
What I did was grabbed a medium sized heavy glass jar, more of a square vase if you will. I then went to find some Washi Tape (or craft tape, as Michael’s calls it because I don’t know, it’s crafty?) Decided on one that has birds and crowns on it. It kind of has an antique feel to it in a sense. As I was walking around, I found some adhesive edging I really liked and it happened to be white, and I’ve come to like white things recently. You can see what I mean by the pictures below.
I came home and went into Photoshop and decided to create something simple with a similar crown for the label of the jar. Bouncing off that idea, I also created 2.5″x2.5″ notecards in Photoshop with 9 to a page and printed them out as well. Just so, you know, the theme matched. I took some photos of the project, and they’re down below. They were only taken with my phone, so they’re not great quality, of course, but it’s what I had at the time. The label is a nice pink color, along with the note cards I created.
Hopefully I’m able to keep this up, throughout the year. I plan to take them all out at the end of the year, on New Years Eve, and read them all. One thing a day that has made me smile, no matter how small of a thing it is. It could be my cats, for all I know. Let’s make it a good year, then, so I have new and exciting things to write about.
