Today is our second Jumpstart June check-in day. If you recall, this is a series I’m doing where I picked a project to try to finish by the end of the month. Some of you picked projects, too. Then, we check in each week to keep each other on track. It’s hard to believe that we are over halfway finished with June!
This check-in method has completely kept me on task. There have been a few times when I wanted to start something new, but I knew that if I did, I wouldn’t have much progress to report to you guys. So, thanks for keeping me going, even though you might not know that you are.
I didn’t feel like I made a ton of progress on my Mary Blair inspired wall this week, but when I looked at the images from previous weeks, I realized that I really had.
Here’s where I started with the project:
Here it was after one week:
And here it is today (after 2 weeks):
Two weeks seems like a long time to have only gotten this far. But, since I’m painting each square one by one with a tiny artist’s paint brush, I’m actually thrilled with how far its come.
I can tell now that I had much grander plans for the month, and although this particular wall will be finished in June, the rest of the walls will not be. That’s going to be closer to the end of the summer – and I’m okay with that. Working on this has been slightly therapeutic, and there’s really no need to rush it.
Now it’s your turn! How is your Jumpstart June project coming along? Tell me about it!
