I actually did it! In all honesty I didn’t think I would write for the entire 31 days of the challenge. I couldn’t imagine that I would have enough to say and complete enough projects to feature. In my head, I had even planned what to say about not posting all of the days. Thankfully that unwritten post was filed in the trash.
Look what I won in a random drawing of the participants – a wonderful leather journal that will inspire me to continue to write!
Admittedly, I did have a number of the projects finished before I signed up for the challenge, but only enough for just shy of a week’s worth of posts. I kept my nose to the grindstone however and came up with enough content for the entire month. And you know what? I have more thoughts brewing in my head.
After the first half of the month, I sat down for a brainstorming session and came up with additional ideas, some of which I did not have time to get to. So those will happen and I will show them to you.
I saw one of my quilt ministry mentors this morning at church and she is still coming up with ideas for me which I must complete in her honor. Funny, she even dreamed of one of the projects. It’s such a blessing to have friends to lift you up and inspire you.
Overall, it was a fun experience. It takes a lot of time but it’s enjoyable when you are talking about a subject that you love. Although I know I won’t be able to post every day I hope to continue with good consistency.
Of course you have to come back later this week to see how I made the fabric swatch pumpkins. Without a doubt, there will be more pumpkins featured before Thanksgiving. You won’t want to miss them.
I hope you will be by to visit often and leave a comment for me. Thanks for reading and giving me a purpose for writing and creating. Last but not least, thank you to Crystal Stine for hosting the month long event of Write 31 Days.
