What doesn't belong in this picture?
Remember those pictures in the Highlight magazine where you circled what was out of place in a picture? Can you guess what is out of place in this photo? I got tired of taking down the heavy bin of paints and decidedly left them on the floor without realizing I was leaving a space for Allistair to climb. It only took him a day or so to notice it before jumping up to investigate.
In this photo I was working on my One Little Word notebook, playing catch up. I joined a different type of series of swaps, Do More Art PROJECT. It is more of a commitment rather than swapping art. One commits to doing one art project (big or small) that month. When completed you share with your partner photos of your accomplishment. For January I committed to starting and completing the January assignment for my One Little Word.
I am asking for your help and advice for this month’s commitment. I have been rolling around the idea of starting a link party on my blog called "Stop Pinning and Make Something!” The idea is to get people creating something rather than simply saying, “Oh, I’d like to make that”, pin it then forget about it. I want people to select one idea from their board, make it, then share their photos of the completed project along with any trials and errors they had along the way. I will host it once a month, starting on the 1st of each month.
I held back for fear no one would join. I am going to launch it March 1st with a giveaway from the first thing I make from one of my pins. I have NO CLUE as to how to get started or advertise it. This is where you, dear blogging friends, come in. I am asking you to share any advice, input or blog friends who may be able to impart advice for this undertaking.
