Craft the rainbow results

About 30 days ago on a whim, I decided to start an Instagram project called Craft the Rainbow where every day I would post a picture of craft supplies in shades of the rainbow. It started out just for fun to see 1) how much junk I had in my closet 2) If I could make my junk look pretty somehow 3) Make beautiful things. Because that’s my ultimate goal with everything I do: make beautiful things. Well, what started out as a whim turned into so much more. I invited people to join me and along the way I saw incredible posts of ordinary things turned into extraordinary things. By the end of the 30 days there were over 2100 posts with the hashtag #crafttherainbow. One person wrote that this project gave her some hope during some sick days and allowed her to go through her grandmother’s closet looking for things to create with. I was humbled by how much of an impact a simple project could play. Making beautiful things can change lives. 
I’m going to continue the project as a fun thing to do and invite you to join in the fun as well. Just create an image and post it to Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook and tag it with #CrafttheRainbow. Easy squeezy.
So, without further adieu, I thought I’d share the posts that I created for the 30 days in order of how many “likes” they received on Instagram
