A Wish a Day - Day Two

Books. We love them in this house, all three of us. We started reading to the little one when she was in my belly and have continued each day. She'll now bring us her favourites and insist we read them to her. I hope that she will always love books and that inspired today's jar.


Today's wish: May you always find joy and comfort in the written word.

Today's paper and words: From a pre-loved copy of Babar, An Elephant's Best Friend.

Thank you to everyone for their kind words on my project beginning! I have been feeling a bit silly about it, so they have all meant a lot. And as my dad pointed out, no there are not 1000 days in a year, but some days more than one crane will form a wish so hopefully I'll still get to that magical number.

I love this idea of a 'Wish a day' project! I'm sure it's not easy and you may run out of wishes but having said that, nothing is easy in this life or else it'll be so boring and no one would want to work their brains! Keep it up and looking forward to more of your creativity! My wish for you is for all your wishes to come true!^_^

You're such a sweet Mummy!
Three hundred and sixty three more wishes. I think you will have no trouble!
Three hundred and sixty three more jars?
Will be interesting.
There is a man who has made a kind of shelf out of his front fence, in a suburb near us and he has all sorts of funny things on it.
Just a thought...

But, ....where on earth will you put all the jars? ......

oh, hey... maybe that could be another project. Build or find a special display unit for 1000 jars....
