This past week’s Picture the Holidays, prompts were:
- Monochromatic Magic
- Twinkle Twinkle
- All is Calm
- Simply Divine
- Sincerely Yours
- Prep & Primp
- The Season of Lights
A prompt arrives in my email inbox each morning, along with a sample image and an explanation of what the prompt is supposed to mean. Sometimes the titles alone, when you compare them to my images, don’t seem to make sense. Since I can’t share the class email with you, you’ll just have to trust my interpretation, I guess. >grin<
Here are some more straightforwardly merry photos. If you’ll recall, I am making an effort this December to do at least one “merry” activity most days, no matter how small it may be. I’m using the Very Merry Advent book for inspiration, but still doing plenty of my own activities, and uploading the images to Instagram.
This is how the merriment experiment went last week:
I took some decorations out of the attic.
I made the task of shoveling more bearable by bringing my camera outside for some blue hour snow pictures.
I made orange pomanders for the first time. (I love them in that big aqua bowl!)
I bought a sparkly new decoration for the living room.
We had a family Christmas movie night.
The boys and I visited my brother and his fiance in their new apartment, and he played Christmas carols for us on his guitar.
I got wacky with a string of lights and some reflective surfaces in order to make nice bokeh for the Picture the Holidays prompt.
So that’s my week in photos, pretty much. I’d like to post one of these again next Monday, but it’s possible that I won’t have my act quite together enough for that. In fact, you might want to lower any expectations you may have about my posting schedule over the next few weeks. I will continue to do the weekend links, and I have some sewing that I’d like to show you, but aside from that, I may be a wee bit scarce around here.
But then, you’re all probably kinda busy yourselves, so maybe you won’t even notice!
I’m off now to take the shower I’ve been putting off all day, and then I will cozy up with my Christmas knitting (which, I can almost guarantee will not be finished in time, but I wan’t to get it as far as possible). I can’t wait to settle in for the night. I love my cozy stitching time!
