Where did I get the idea (or should I say courage) to start this blog?  Well there is a ton of inspiration on the Internet but the one that tipped me over the edge was this post on the Daring to Live Fully website by Marelisa.  The challenge to do a 365 day project in 2013.  This seemed the solution to many things:

  • What shall I blog about?
  • What do I like to do?
  • If I blog about sewing only, I may not get to other projects I want to do.
  • So many dreamt of projects unrealised
  • Commiting myself to working on my creativity in 2013.
My daughter Ellen kept a 365 picture blog a couple of years ago, so the concept is not completely new to me.  I may end up with some posts here being just a picture.  I am finding my feet.  My ultimate dream would be to earn a living by blogging.  So I can at least pretend that is what I am doing now, no?  Playing if you like.  And you never know if you don't give it a go.  Perhaps over the next say 5  years, I can reduce my days at "real work" and supplement my income with a passion.  Hey, I love to read blogs so blogging about things I think are fun should be better still. Wish me luck as I put this out to the universe.

The photo above is of the Jamieson River in Victoria, Australia last July, when my sister and I went on a road trip.  I think the disappearing river is symbolic of the unknown journey.
