Karah & a few blogging friends are running a fabulous challenge for January which I think I am going to challenge myself to do. Here’s the story…
Doug Larson once said “Some of the greatest feats were accomplished by people not smart enough to know they were impossible”.
Uhhhh, are you talkin’ to me? Like directly at me, with a harsh glare and aggressive pointy finger?
That’s ok, I’m not in denial. I know I’m not the brightest bulb in this chandelier of life. But I sure do try hard.
So, when I got an email from Karianne at Thistlewood Farm and Kelly from Eclectically Vintage (yes, the same Kelly who featured my personalized map dresser - Thanks again Kelly!) telling me about their great idea I was all in! Picture me sliding my whole stack o’ chips to black.
I didn’t even know about this Doug Larson
guy quote until Karianne mentioned it, but man, is it true or what? When she came across it she got to thinking, what was her impossible? What did she truly believe she couldn’t do? Then, what did some of her blog friends feel was impossible? THEN, what if we all decided we were wrong?
“Imagine the Impossibilities”.
A gallery wall with only one screw hole in the wall? WHAT?!? That’s totally impossible. Isn’t it?
Well, we’re about to find out.
How many screws do you think went into these walls?
See, Karianne and Kelly came up with this awesome idea to challenge ourselves to a little Imagine the Impossible project. They invited a few of their best blogger buddies and we invite all of YOU to take the challenge. The Imagine the Impossibilities Challenge.
What would you try if you had no boundries? What ideas do you have floating around that you (or others) think are just nuts? What do you really just want to try even though a big part of you thinks it’s just not going to work? (Uhhh, can you say gallery wall with one screw hole in the wall?)
It could be anything people! Skydiving, mountain climbing, creative writing, closet organizing, gourmet cooking (or homemade bread making as Karianne will be trying). Is it lamp painting, table decorating, long distance running, kayaking? Your impossible is just that, YOURS! There’s no too big or small, right or wrong. What limitations have you set for yourself that you might, just maybe, be able to talk yourself out of?
Oh, just Imagine the Impossibilities!
In addition to myself, here is the cast of characters. Just click on their blog name to jump over to their site and check out some of the awesome stuff they have done already and learn more about their impossibles.
Kari – Thistlewood Farm. Cooking is not her thing, but homemade bread is her challenge.
Kelly – Eclectically Vintage. For all of you with basements that become black holes filled who knows what, she is going to be purging and organizing 16 years stuff. We might need to send her husband down if she doesn’t resurface before the end of the month.
Linda – It All Started With Paint. Painting a vaulted ceiling definitely sounds impossible to me. Yikes!
Stacey – A Sort of Fairy Tale. For someone who has hovered at the pillow case stage of sewing she will be attempting to sew a purse. I didn’t even know people do that.
Our self imposed deadline is January 31st and we will all be posting weekly updates between now and then so check back often to follow the “I Might Be Screwed (Just Once), A Gallery Wall Experiement”.
All of our efforts, AND YOURS, will culminate in 6 separate link parties on January 31st, one on each of our blogs. I personally, cannot wait to check out all of the links and pick a few fav’s to feature!
Here’s how to join!
