Harking back to the days of The Envelope Project and blogging 2009-style, next year I’m doing a little artsy/cutesy/people-y project.
It’s called 52 Hellos. It’s been rolling around in my head for a while and 2015 is the year to make it happen.
Here’s how 52 Hellos goes! (You can join in too, if you like!)
1. Every week for 52 weeks I am going to write someone a letter (which I MIGHT share a little bit about on my blog/Instagram or I might not!)
2. Every week for 52 weeks I am going to PROFILE a letter on my blog. This means I need people like you to send me a letter! I am going to scan and upload a letter each week and plonk it right here for all to see. Your letter can tell a story, or it can be a bit of news about your life or it can tell us about something important we need to be made aware of or it could be some nice memories you’ve chosen to share. It could be a poem. It could be written by your kid. Or by you. You can pop a photo in or some kind of related ephemera. Or not. Your letter might be mostly a drawing, or lots of words… handwritten or typed. It could be a letter you’ve written to someone else. It could be anything, really!
>>> So one letter goes OUT each week (from me to whoever I need to write to… My Nan, Tony Abbott, the owner of my favourite cafe).
>>> And one comes IN each week and gets profiled here.
The idea is to GET ME writing letters… maybe improve my always-too-rushed handwriting, slow down, be a bit more mindful and take a bit of time out for special or important hellos. And the idea is to GET YOU writing (and help us find out about other peoples’ lives or important things they care about…) whether you write ME a letter (as per above) or you simply join in and write 52 hellos of your own!
Super cute, right?! Obviously I am starting the first week of January so I’d LOVE some letters in the PO Box by then! Do you think anyone will send me one?! I’m excited to find out!
If you want to join in:
a) write me a letter as detailed above
b) try to write 52 hellos in 2015 or
c) all of the above
We can be #52hellos on Instagram, okay? Cool!
PS: If you fall behind there are no punishments. These things happen! You can try to catch up or just say WHOOPS and not worry about it!
