A is for Alphabet Journal (and Asplode)

Quite some time ago a lovely lady I am lucky enough to know approached me to be involved in an exciting idea that she wanted to make happen.

A dream of hers.

I fell in love with it immediately.

A project that's basis is finding joy in what we already have.

Our everyday.

It isn't about buying new things, or having a fancy home but instead it's essence is seeing the magic before us every single day in all it's shapes and forms and individual ways.

It is about recognising that sometimes the least shiny things are actually the most sparkly of all.

It is about families of all shapes and sizes.

Using her words- 'It is about the universal language of every home'

I am so thrilled to be a collaborator in this project.

We are now seeking funding to be able to see it in print.

Many many months of planning, 26 writers, 27 photographers, and 3 artists across 4 continents have shared their expertise to create this project.

Today I am sharing the Kickstarter project with you that will enable it to come to life in print.
By clicking on this link you can read more about this beautiful project and maybe even help give it a 'Kickstart'

In the meantime watch this gorgeous film that also gives you a window into this very special project.
My heart ASPLODED when I saw this for the first time.......just as it will when I get to see Alphabet Journal come to life.
