Using a ring organiser to manage a project – Part 5

Wow. I can’t believe I’m here with the last post for The Filofax Project. What a bittersweet thing this is.

It’s been a long while since I first responded to Janet’s request for a project coordinator  and I’ve learned so incredibly much in that time I can’t even imagine getting it all into a single post.

Before I go any further, I have to stop and thank Janet for her unfathomable generosity, incredible creativity, and unyielding levels of support in making this project a reality. She has spent so much time, money, and resources in making sure this project was a success it simply blows my mind. So to you, Janet, thank you for allowing me to be a part of something so amazing.

I also have to thank all of our amazing participants – there wouldn’t have been a project without you. Your ideas have inspired me to be more creative every single day. I’ve loved getting to know all of you so incredibly much.

Of course, no project is perfect, this one included. There were people who took advantage of Janet’s generosity and my time, but only two projects that didn’t make it to completion. Sometimes it is simply better for everyone to walk away instead of fighting a losing battle. So instead of dwelling on the negative, I’m going to remember those of you who got your posts to me even when your lives were insanely busy, or in some cases, falling apart. You have reminded me that commitments can and should always be met and for that, I thank you.

Before I continue to wax poetic on this incredible project, I’m just going to share my final post. But instead of giving you more words to read, you instead get to listen to me blabber on about this beautiful Siena of mine. Of course, if you have any questions, just pop them in the comments!

I suppose that’s it for me! I do believe Janet will be on at some point to do a wrap up of the entire project from her standpoint. I’m leaving the final decision up to her as to what we’ll end up doing with the Facebook group, but of course the posts will remain on This Bug’s Life for you to enjoy!
