Sunday 7: Things To Do in 2012

January 1, 2012 § 4 Comments

I’m not much for New Year’s resolutions, but I do like the idea of having a focus for the year.  For 2012, I’m going for turning ideas and intentions into actions.

How does this relate to Scribbling Glue and letter-writing in general?  Well, I often come across or dream up creative opportunities and think, Ooooooo, I want to try that!  But I don’t always get beyond the thought and into the fun of making or doing something new.  This year, though, I’m going to do a lot more creating and trying things!

Here are 7 projects I plan to tackle:

  1. Positively Postal’s A-Z of The U.K. Mail Art Project.  Scott Thomson of Positively Postal is currently running a neat mail art project/competition.  I need to hop to it and create a piece, though, since my entry needs to be in England by the time the competition ends on January 31st.
  2. Letter-Writing SocialAs I mentioned before, I love the idea of hosting a letter-writing social.  This is exactly the sort of idea that I think about and don’t make happen.  This year I’m going to change that!
  3. Writing an Epistolary Story.  A dear friend and I have decided to co-write a story for our own amusement.  She proposed that we each take a persona and write the story in the form of letters exchanged by our characters.  A similar idea had been in my mind since I recently read (and thoroughly enjoyed) the Regency Magic trilogy, co-authored by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer.  The first book in that series grew out of an in-character letter-writing game the two authors played.  This is going to be fun!
  4. Cork Stamps.  There is something delightful about stamping things.  Also, I see lots of potential for making and gifting them to friends.
  5. Stamp Collage Ornament Tags.  This is a cool way to re-use stamps.
  6. National Postal Museum.  I’ve wanted to visit the NPM for quite a while.  2012 is the year I make it there!
  7. Do More Scribbling.  Sending letters, writing notes, making cards–this is going to be a joyful undertaking.

    A fresh page to begin recording my 2012 Letters Sent.
