Not a lot of chatter in the comments here these days. I wonder why that is. Am I talking about things that you find completely uninspiring? Am I not posting enough? Am I posting too much? Does it have nothing to do with me at all, and everything to do with October? That’s it, isn’t [...]continue reading "Chill"
Since today’s theme for Back to School Book Week is an “anything goes” kind of theme, and since the book I chose to talk about is photography-related, I thought it would be handy to just combine the two related topics into one post. So here are my favorite flickr photos for the week: You can [...]continue reading "Back to School Book Week + Friday Photo Love"
I’m feeling like some kind of addict for the last week or so – I can’t get enough of widgets and gadgets and refreshing my pages… it’s getting out of hand. So, I’m just going to show you my favorite photos for the week, point you to a few of the widgetey things you might [...]continue reading "Friday Photo Love. and gadgets."
I never showed you the photo books I made earlier this summer, did I? Fresh from our annual Ocean City trip, Flickr’s “Print & Create” tab sucked me in and forced me to have an album of our adventure printed and delivered to my doorstep. I was powerless to resist, I tell you! It was [...]continue reading "Peek-a-boo!"
I’m eager to get into a new daily photography project, and here it is: A Month of Hands. Won’t you join me? Our hands are always busy, always making art, preparing meals, helping children, keeping journals, driving vehicles, holding doors open, tying shoelaces, applying nail polish, picking berries… all of those things and many, many [...]continue reading "A Month of Hands"
More Yellow Week. Did you know there’s a flickr group for this, too? I didn’t think I cared much for yellow until I started seeing some of the striking photos people are taking. I bought myself flowers two Fridays ago and they’re still hanging in there. Pretty impressive lifespan for a supermarket impulse buy. There [...]continue reading "They call me Mellow Yellow"
Here are a few of my recent Flickr favorites. Click on the image for individual photo credits. So, it’s Friday. For real, not just in my mind. How do you plan to spend your weekend? I’m hoping to do a little something crafty, and try not to make any big messes Rumor has it it’s [...]continue reading "Happy Friday!"
I never mentioned Project 365 last week. As in, I finished it. As in, I’m done taking pictures of my feet. As in, I no longer have to consider how my socks and/or pant cuffs will look on camera every morning as I pick out my clothes. These are some of my favorite shots from [...]continue reading "730 Feet: a retrospective"
Thanks for all of your great suggestions for greening my kitchen. I knew you’d know what to tell me So, it’s a new week, and that means it’s time to look back on the old one, via the wonders of Flickr (where my photos are kept) and Big Huge Labs (where I make my mosaics). [...]continue reading "Mosaic Monday"
(A rather large nutshell, apparently) Here’s what’s been happening in our Polka Dot Cottage for the last few days: First, we finally took that evening beach trip I’d promised the kids. Various factors had been keeping us from going for the last few weeks, but Wednesday we managed to do it. And Neil was able [...]continue reading "In a nutshell"
