A Month of Gratitude

Tomorrow begins a new month, and it also marks the first time I am without a photo-taking project in almost a year and a half. Or, I should say, it would have marked that occasion, but I decided instead that a month-long project was in order. November is the month of Thanksgiving here in the […]

Calendar fun

Let me share what I’ve been playing with today, because I think it’s really nifty.  Paige Balcer of Shutter Sisters shared this set of Photoshop templates that can be used to make a small photo calendar.  The resulting pages are the perfect size to fit inside a CD jewel case for display.  Alternately, a colorful […]

A year of mornings

I finished my 365 project last week.  I had chosen the theme “A Year of Mornings” after discovering this Flickr group, which was inspired by Maria Alexandra Vettese and Stephanie Congdon Barnes’ year-long photo blog, that eventually became this book. One of my reasons for choosing mornings was that I owned the book, and I […]

Chill

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 […]

Friday Photo Love – Picture Fall, week 2

I haven’t been here as much as I’d have liked to be, the last few days.  Things are busy here, plus we are down to one car at the moment, so I’m taking kids to school and husbands to work, and then picking everyone back up again a few hours later.  Some of my blogging […]

Thumbless Dashing

I just realized it’s been a year since I first picked up the knitting needles.  My first project with them was a pair of fingerless gloves, and surprise, surprise, guess what my most recent project has been? Yes, it’s another pair of Dashing.  After making three pairs for other people, I was eager to make […]
