A New Project

Yes, I decided I needed to take on one more thing to do, as I look at my dining room table with two open and running laptops, notebooks, flashdrives, and hundreds of school directory forms.

I have been following Ashley at Lil Blue Boo for almost as long as she has had her blog.  I was first drawn to her cute crafts and sewing projects, but over time, her life just became so damn interesting to me.

I don’t know Ashley and have only commented on her blog a few times, although I think I have read every post, but one time she did mention me in her blog post here.  The “Amy” she is referring to is me…honest.  I was super excited about it and I told anyone that would listen.  They just smiled and nodded.  To which I would exclaim, “Do you have any idea how many people read her blog!?!?”

Simple pleasures.

That is my segue into my new project!  Ashley is started something called The Lil Journal Project.  At first glance, I thought, why would I need to do this?  I basically have a journal with my daily posting blog.  This is so much more than typing out some words everyday.  Yesterday’s “assignment” was to write a page of things that I found to be simple pleasures.  I filled the entire page in all different colored sharpies.

The reason I’m posting about this today is because I know a lot of people who I think would really benefit from participating in this journal project.  If you miss a day, go back and do it later.  Or don’t do it at all.  I did the first 3 days all on one day and haven’t gotten to the 4th assignment yet.

You may find a hidden talent, a love for writing, drawing or creativity that you never knew you had!

*I am in no way affiliated (except for that one time she mentioned me :-)) with Lil Blue Boo, the blog, products or anything else that sounds legal-like.
