I think this week I’m going to let the pictures do all of the talking, because if all has gone according to plan, Aidan and I are already halfway to Rhinebeck, and we’re too busy enjoying the foliage, our Fall music, and the pleasant drive to blog right now 🍁🍂🎵😃
So, what is This Week in Pictures?
It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (one image each day for all of 2016), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.
Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…
Instagram 📱: Some more #pdcstudearrings that may or may not be completed. I have to make a few finishing decisions before I’m ready to sell any. Pretty happy, though. That pair in the front is mine. I’m already wearing them right now 😊 #pdc
365 📷: 2016 282/366 – Despite the fact that I am usually home all day during the week, I still feel like there is nothing more exciting than a free weekend with which to explore creative ideas.
Instagram 📱: Good Morning, Instagram! It’s a rainy day here in New Jersey, and I’m camped out next to the biggest window in the house, getting all of the light I possibly can, and photographing my new #pdcstudearrings. If all goes well, several pairs will be in the shop by the end of the day 💟 #pdc
Instagram 📱: The fruits of my weekend labor: 20+ different varieties of #pdcstudearrings 😊
365 📱: 2016 283/366 – It’s been a nice weekend. I finally indulged some creative urges I’ve been ignoring for months, and the 13-year-old and I had plenty of quality time together. Tonight we took a nice walk in the park ♥ [Taken in Gillette, NJ.]
Instagram 📱: I want to knit myself a Christmas sweater this year. First step? Center-pull balls. And a pumpkin spice latte. And an episode of NCIS.
365 📷: 2016 284/366 – The kids have a few days off from school this week, so we took today to visit my parents and a couple of lazy cats. [Taken at my parents’ house.]
Instagram 📱: I started another #pdcportholepullover last night. I want to make this one with short sleeves and wear it for Christmas 😊
365 📷: 2016 285/366 – Today I got stuff done: shipped some orders, photographed a new product for my website, added that new product to my website, opened custom ordering in my shop, started a little Instagram contest, wrote a blog post, and took care of some important email. I think tonight I will sleep well.
Instagram 📱: Putting a little extra shine on a new batch of #pdcstudearrings.
365 📱: 2016 286/366 – I’m finding myself very busy, which usually leads to multi-tasking on my part. This evening it took the form of preparing supper while watching an Etsy seller panel on YouTube and photographing new items for my shop.
365 📷: 2016 287/366 – Another productive day today! I took care of some important financial stuff, made some improvements to my resume, and tagged a bunch of inventory to be brought to the boutique (and other stuff to be set aside for my upcoming craft show). And somewhere in there I found time to have 3 cups of coffee in my favorite mug.
Instagram 📱: Packing my layers for #rhinebeck 😊. Ideally it will be a great day for my #pdcportholepullover but if it’s cold, I’ll also need my #hitchhikershawl on top of it. And then, in the disastrous event that it’s too hot for the sweater (gasp!) I need a T-shirt and light cardi to wear with the shawl. It’s the one day a year I hope for high temperatures below 60F 😎
365 📷: 2016 288/366 – I narrowed it down to a modest little pile of handknits for this weekend: a cardigan, a pullover, and two shawls. Aidan and I are hanging out in the hotel tonight. We’re probably going to run out for coffee soon, but then I’m going to throw on my pajamas, do some knitting and watch a little Scarecrow and Mrs. King ☺ [Taken at a hotel in Fishkill.]
Instagram 📱: The man child and I are in Fishkill. Our #rhinebeck2016 adventure begins ☕☕ [Taken at Starbucks.]
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!
