Have you heard of 30 Days of Lists? It’s a super fun creative project taking place next month! Creating art or journaling or just taking time for yourself every day can seem daunting so the ladies behind 30 Lists created a challenge where every day for 30 days you get a list topic. Jot your lists on scrap paper, post them as photos on instagram or make yourself a cute little notebook to fill with your lists. It doesn’t need to take more than a few minutes a day and who doesn’t love making lists??
I’m a sponsor of this round of 30 Lists so I was invited to participate in a blog hop. In anticipation of March’s session starting in a few days, we’re all posting a list from the March 2011 set of prompts.
I chose topic #22 Today I Saw and am posting it not as a handwritten list but a list typed out here on my blog. I take a ton of pictures every day so I’d love to show you what I actually saw today. (If you follow along with me next month, I’ll be posting some photos of my 30 lists. I’ll be listing in a little notebook I made and there will even be mini drawings as part of some of my lists because I just can’t help myself. You can see a super sneak preview of one of my list drawings on Instagram.)
Okay. Today I saw . . .
the end of my littlest girl’s baby curls. *snif, snif* She got her hair cut for the first time in her 4.25 years. It needed to be done because the ends of her hair were so dry and splitting and always tangled but I still hesitated before I cut off this bit.
Charlotte gave me the evil eye because I dared to go into the chicken run without bringing her any treats.
Spring! In autumn I always think that it can’t possibly get any prettier with trees glowing in the golden light but then spring arrives and is such a show-off with her colorful flowers. Oh spring, you win me over every year.
Speaking of autumn, some of its skeletons are still around.
I saw my little girl master this climbing structure and then exclaim “YES! I did it!” while pumping her fist in the air. I love how quick she is to congratulate herself. Often at dinner she’ll say things like “thank you myself for peeling the sweet potatoes!”
Leprechauns! I’ve been making these little St. Patrick’s Day sets and spent part of the afternoon photographing them and listing them in my shop. My girls love making leprechaun traps around St. Patrick’s Day and I think one or two of these little guys may have to fall into their trap this year.
The sky (and my neighbor’s fluffy, white tree.) I am embarking on a personal art project that has to do with the many colors of the sky. I’m not ready to share more than that at the moment but I’ve been looking at the sky a lot. It’s been so beautiful and blue lately!
