So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the occasional when-I-feel-like-it theme for 2017 is “words”), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…

Saturday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 175/365 – I’m not sure exactly how I’m going to spend my Saturday night, but I’m pretty sure it will involve Netflix and these balls of yarn.

Sunday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 176/365 – Neil takes care of things around the house now that he’s working from home and I am not. But this weekend, while he was in Washington, it felt like old times again, and I actually enjoyed cranking up the music and cleaning the kitchen.

Monday

Instagram πŸ“±: It’s always nice when the bracelets you grab on your way out the door in the morning go so nicely with the shirt you are wearing. [Taken at work.]

365 πŸ“·: 2017 177/365 – As it turns out, I spent so long trying to pick a movie on Saturday night that I never did get to doing anything at all with that yarn. Sunday night, however, was a different story. I got halfway done with this Tumbleweeds Mandala and then I finished it up tonight.

Tuesday

Instagram πŸ“±: Ok, *now* I’m done crocheting mandalas for my desk 😜

365 πŸ“±: 2017 178/365 – We needed an image of our office building to encorporate into the newsletter logo, so I ran outside and shot a few for our graphics guy to choose from. It’s great to have an excuse to work outside on a beautiful day like today, even if it was only for a few minutes. [Taken at work.]

Wednesday

365 πŸ“±: 2017 179/365 – For the last couple of months, I’ve been blogging for the company I work for. I think I bring something different to their blog… namely: craft supplies. πŸ˜‰

Thursday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 180/365 – It’s almost tiger lily time.

Instagram πŸ“±: I’m de-stashing some of my mandalas – mostly ones that I made and then changed my mind about the color scheme, or realized I had nowhere appropriate to put them. Visit my website, if you’d like to buy one! The clickable link is in my profile. Or, go here: http://www.lisaclarke.net/store/handmades/etc/mandalas/ #pdc

Friday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 181/365 – I’ve decided I need to make some claythings to match the mandalas and paper bunting in my cubicle at work, so tonight I mixed up some colors. And I also trekked out to AC Moore, when I remembered that I’d used up all of my white polymer at the Clayathon four months ago. Oops.

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on FlickrΒ and/or Instagram.

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
