30 ways to brighten your month

30 ways to brighten your month

What is #OperationLoveNovember? See my previous blog post for why and how we came up with these ideas.

After we finished up #OperationLoveNovember this past fall, I had a few people ask for our list of actions that we came up with, either to use now in January or February (which can also be hard months), or to refer to next year. So, in no particular order, here they are:

  1. Go for a brisk walk no matter the weather
  2. Make a paper snowflake
  3. Do a series of sun salutations
  4. Watch a movie
  5. Eat vegetables for breakfast
  6. Wear something fancy
  7. Make hot chocolate
  8. Do some origami
  9. Put on swing music and dance the Charleston
  10. Eat ice cream
  11. Do a sudoku puzzle
  12. Go for a nighttime stroll
  13. Make a cup of proper chai (recipe here!)
  14. Play a card game
  15. Take a hot bath
  16. Bake something
  17. Play a silly computer game
  18. Read the comics
  19. Lie on the floor for 10 minutes and breath
  20. Wear hand-knit socks (or your favourite pair of socks)
  21. Buy yourself flowers
  22. Try a new recipe
  23. Colour a picture or sketch a drawing
  24. Play cat's cradle
  25. Paint your toenails
  26. Make a friendship bracelet
  27. Have a fancy drink
  28. Read a chapter of a favourite book
  29. Buy yourself a treat
  30. Call/email/write a friend you haven't talked to recently

Please feel free to use, adapt, and enjoy!

As part of our 100 days of patterns retrospective, we'll be sharing some project galleries featuring some favourite projects made from our patterns. Cranberry Biscotti (a free sock pattern) is my design with the most projects on Ravelry. I'm sharing a few of my favourites here, but do check out the project pages on Ravelry to see many, many more beautiful projects.

100 Days of Patterns

by Debbie Sullivan April 15, 2020

Since we’re still on a shipping hiatus for the time being, we thought it would be a good time to do a retrospective of our Sweet Paprika patterns. We’ve been publishing our own designs and those of other talented designers for over 13 years now, and have 99 patterns available here on our website and on Ravelry! We decided to call this project 100 Days of Patterns though, since we’re pretty sure we’ll have at least one new pattern released by the time we get through them all...
