February 12 of 12 Project

Today has been a very fun day! Our good friend Janet Hughes – also known as BodynSoil both on her website and on Twitter – is carrying on a tradition started by Chad Darnell a number of years. It’s called the 12 of 12 Project and it’s really pretty easy and very fun to do! Take 12 pictures of your day on the 12th of each month. Then post them and take part in the 12 of 12 Project.

You can find out more about the 12 of 12 Project on Janet’s website here!
