One personal innovation I’ve been working on is cards!
Every month i’ve been drawing up something that helps me to remember and appreciate the time that passes so quickly.
Any memories or ideas of what springs to mind (no pun intended) for the months to come, I’d love to hear your input! Here’s my really quick brainstorm (remember, the Boston area has a crazy weather system, hence my weather related ideas, i’m open to others!!) but i’m embarassed at the cliche aspects:
JANUARY biiig snowflakes
FEBRUARY well, the groundhog of course
MARCH shamrocks are so overdone…what about kites?
APRIL rain, umbrellas, boots
MAY definitely daffodils. Maybe a crocus or two
JUNE That’s a tough one…grasshoppers are underrepresented, right?
JULY patriotic USA stuff
AUGUST whales? Starfish….sandcastles?
SEPTEMBER school bus
