The January Challenge 2020

The January Challenge 2020, Day 12 – Positive Shelf-Image

Today’s challenge is set by Kirstie. It’s Sunday 12th January – and it’s time to get creative…

If you could choose one thing that you love for every month in 2020, what would you choose?

Fill a ‘bookshelf’ with 12 things. Your bookshelf might be a doodle, or you might want to put meaningful objects out on display. Each thing should show an experience you’d like to have this year. It could be a book you want to read, a film to watch, a photo of a day out, a souvenir from a country you want to visit…

Spend 10 minutes today filing your shelf with the things you’d love to collect on the way to 2021.

If you have more time … 
Find somewhere to put your ‘positive shelf-image’ on display – whether it’s a photograph, a sketch, or an item, where could you put it to remind you of what’s to come?

How did you approach this challenge? What did it make you think about, or reflect on? How could you start making one of your ‘things’ happen?
