Summer Manifesto

Sommarmanifestet 2012
New tradition: to write a Summer Manifesto.

A Summer Manifest is a list of ideas about summer, and what your summer should be about or include. On my list I’ve put bike rides, writing when it’s raining and baking among other things.

I’m also going to add spraypainting (outdoors) because I have some items I want to redo. Among the delights of summer I also count BBQs, taking long walks with my camera, eating strawberries, picking flowers, and sitting outdoor to create.

Inspiration from: Ali Edwards.

What is your favorite summer activity?

    I love how your page looks. They colors are lovely together and your goals are great! This summer I want to make the most of my free time by doing a lot of street art, snail mail, and other creative things.

    Be outside! Paint, garden, paint some more, sit in the shade and read, paint more, cook on the grill. It is the only time I feel there is enough room for me and my art supplies.

    I love your art journal page and I think this is a great idea , I’m definately going to make my own manifesto too.
    Some of my favorite things are watercolor sketching outside, BBQ’s at the local park and reading. Doing the manifesto will help me come up with even more ideas. Thanks.

    – sit in the evenings outside (so far, I hadn’t had much change.. it’s too cold and rainy) and re-read some books. – watch tour de France (!!) – Bind a new art journal – finish that canvas I’m working on – smile – get Featuring issue 2 out – create – smile – create – read – create

    (I should write a Summer manifesto too, don’t you think?)

    Great idea!! I need to make a list too. Have one in my head but that is all the further it gets! Thanks for the nudge.

    Well since you asked! My favorite thing to do in summer is to meander through my garden first thing in the morning, coffee in hand, wrapped up in a blanket to ward off the morning chill and search for the newest flowers or buds or seedlings. It is a ritual I don’t miss because just as it is in Sweden, winter is long, ling, long.

    What a great idea, Hanna! :-D I may just take it and write my own summer manifesto. Because summer is so short, in Canada, it’s a great reminder to not loose a minute of the sun.

    For me, I guess that one of favorite activity is biking with Olivier, my partner. Also, any type of gardening is a must, for me. Either in my community garden or just watering my plants, on the outdoor patio. :)

    Hanna, I love your summer manifesto. I always make a summer list, but making it into it’s own art project is a great idea. What a beautiful visual reminder to get out and do those things. Your blog is beautiful.

  10. Here in sicily (south of Italy) summer is so long!!!
    It started 2 weeks ago and it will stay with us till the first days of october (hot hot hot, we can reach 45° C in July).
    I have projects for this sunny season, like: taking photos of me and friends/family, starting an embroidery project (ready in my mind), sitting on the balcony late in the evening enjoying fresh air and read novels, drawing and journaling a lot, learning new crochet stitches, sewing something for my home.
    uh, and I want to go to the beach, of course!

    The summer weather definitely makes it great for spending time outside. The manifesto ideas is great… a way to get into the right mindset!
