day 403 – four thank yous

This is the final post of four things on but the site will remain open with updates on the things to come.

This has been a truly amazing year with this project. From day one I knew when I was organizing my studio and seeing how many small collections of things I kept and really loved, to Allison Sommers first post on January 2nd 2011, and in early November when all weeks had been assigned, and now when everything is all said and done that the concept of this project was something people really enjoy. We love our stuff and other peoples as well.

I can’t thank the Guest Editor’s enough for making this what it is. It takes courage to expose the things we hold onto. The Guest Editor’s did it and the internet has found out a little more about each of them.

I encourage everyone to keep checking back to find out what is next for this little project. My hope is a bound book and art exhibition. But I am open to other possibilites.

My humble thank you to everyone who made this possible and the collectors around the world, past, present, and future.

Happy New Year.

How many days in a year? Today is day 365, a special day.

Today marks the official 1 year mark of the blog. 365 days. What an incredible process it has been.

four for the day began on November 26th, 2010.  After a few short weeks of posting my collections to the blog and  some positive criticism I decided that four for the day could and should really be brought to life not only by me but through an open call for contributions and a cast of invited collectors, organizers, hoarders, and lovers of stuff. The guest editors quickly signed up and were pencilled in. At that point I decided to start the count again from the beginning with Alison Sommers on January 3rd, 2011 – day 39, but to not compromise the already posted days of collections.

It has been an amazing year so far but we still have 39 more days to go.

Enjoy the remaining days and thanks for coming by and appreciating the beautiful collections of our past, present, and future editors.
