Inspire Me Thursday's prompt for this week was to think of the best of 2007. I think what was the best for me and will be most memorable this year was starting a blog!
I was inspired to start this blog because I wanted to participate in "Inspire Me Thursday" and Wardrobe Refashion (it's been 8 months since I bought a new item of clothing...). These challenges have helped me move beyond just thinking about projects that I want to do, to really doing them.
I also like participating in something that people around the world are doing. Although I think that being local is hugely important in most ways, I think it's also important to be part of the global community/conversation in someway.
In a kind of butterfly effect, it's led me to other places. One was being included in Artful Blogging. This was very, very exciting for me! On a more practical level, finding other blogs that have helped me focus my efforts to be more sustainable (a new idea I like is not just being sustainable, but also regenerative in my lifestyle.) has been very important. I'm also trying to be more sustainable in how I create. My goal for the next year is to really become consistent in using up my "stash of trash." That would be all the stuff I've saved other the years thinking that somehow it would be useful....
