take a photo every day for a year or maybe you have heard of the Skull A Day started in 2007 by Noah Scalin. I know enough about myself to recognize that those are projects I am not detail oriented enough to participate in. I would probably be zealous for a week or two and then let it drop off.
Well, some of the folks at ETSY have come up with a new project; one mainly to advertise the cards sold on their site I think or maybe they were put up to it by the United States Post Office, but I like it and I am going to participate myself.
It's called 52 Weeks of Mail. All this project is about it committing to mail one personal piece of mail per week. To anyone. And each letter can go to a different person all year long.
As I have been cleaning my office in preparation of moving, I have found dozens upon dozens of hand made cards I have purchased over the years (always trying to do my best to support independent artists!) but never sent or given to anyone. I may try and make a few cards of my own too. I am excited about this project because it will inspire me to create small little works of art and to connect with people I may not stay in touch with. Or maybe I will send surprise cards to my friends and family just to say hi. You should participate too! Go to the 52 Weeks of Mail Facebook page and click "like" and there you go! This project starts October 9th, so you only have a little time to think about it. I will be posting photos of my cards as I move through the project. Fun!
