I know it’s not New Years and time for resolutions not kept beyond a few weeks…but…here’s an idea: pick one thing you can turn into a mini-project for the coming year that requires little effort other than doing it each month. End of the year, and wow, what a pay back.

Last December, I decided to snap a photo of whatever flower arrangement I created for the corner spot on my kitchen counter, using my iPhone. I decided I wouldn’t stage or light it, just point and click. No one photo or arrangement is noteworthy, but compiled as a project, they gain strength. I’m now thinking about this coming year and what “home project/experiment” to embrace. Any suggestions?
