365 Day Project: 64

I’m running so far behind but luckily I remembered to turn the crockpot on this morning. Yup, it’s that kind of day today. Tonight’s photo I went with the, ‘if I fits I sits’ mentality of cats with this lost kitty figure. The complementary color palette is bright and inviting.

Off to the next thing I’m behind on. Have a great evening Y’all!

Saturday Early-Late Start

Got a late start even though I woke up early. The older kiddos had solo/ensemble this morning and had to be at the school by 7AM. Picture it, I’m up at 4AM cleaning the kitchen and trying to prepare for the day. My son is up an reminding me that we have our coffee date and he even put some thought into the trip, ‘Let’s drop off my sissies first then we can go straight there.’ Well, can’t argue with that. It’s now 6:25AM, I’m not dressed to leave the house but surprise surprise, the girls weren’t even up! Here I am, trying to get dressed, make pancakes, and get the girls up and ready. My husband was tasked with digging the car out with the snow that came in last night but believe it or not we were out of the house and got them there right on time.

An exciting decision on my part I made in the wee morning hours. Now, just some research. I thought about putting writing an anthology of super short micro fictional stories and publishing. I’m not good at the long haul stories (I easily lose my train of thought or can’t even make it to the finish line) but thoroughly enjoying my short stories. I came across a list on Facebook that furthered encouraged my idea. I’ll post stories from this list. I have decided 150 words is my limit. No more, no less. I’m going to figure out a rating system and would like the reader’s honest opinion when choosing a rating. Ratings are for me to decide if this is something I should further pursue publishing and perhaps increasing the word limit by 100.

Between getting off work and picking up the kids from school I have 15 minutes to get to the coffee shop. I promised that I would buy myself an iced coffee after work and in order for me to get one I had to call ahead. I took this quick and thought, ‘why not?’ I like the style of lights that our local shop has. I wish I was brave enough to take more lifestyle images and I feel kind of exposed without one of my toys or action figures.

365 Day Project: 40

This morning while running errands my husband thought it would be best to feed me. I was hangry and he thought it would be a public service. I was trying to capture one of those awesome moody ‘lifestyle’ coffee moments. I’m not quite there and will find more information but I did pull out my phone and let everyone in this small town stare at me while I tried to capture the perfect shot. I like the coffee palette of warm colors that were available from this picture.

Oh Oh…I have some new action toys/figures to use when I’m running out of ideas. I was so excited about the flood of ideas that came to me that I wanted to shoot them all today. I practiced restraint. Now, I’m on a mission for more cool little toys and figures. Happy Saturday Y’all and be creative or do something that brings you calming happiness.

Super Excited!

Coming home and ordering pizza was one of the most relaxing things I’ve done for myself today outside of creating my olive monster. Then I learn that I REALLY get to write a guest post on an art blog. Details coming soon but I’m OVER THE MOON to be given the opportunity to do it. THEN I was checking stats and noticed that one of my referrers was Discover. Umm…HUH? After Discover ended the topics I thought that would NEVER appear again.

I had a short response and thought it wouldn’t make a difference. There were so many awesome responses and stories. The question was, ‘What if you could do anything?’ My insignificant answer, short and to the point, ‘Heal what has been broken.’ There is so much turmoil in the world and within me that these were the only acceptable words that could barely scrape explaining what I would do. But, Y’ALL! (insert excited EEK here). I’m the 6th response down!!!

With everything going awful and these two positive moments happening on the same day is a renewal of determination and grasping confidence again. Just wanted to share and toot my own horn for a bit. EEK! And now I’m going to get some much needed rest.

365 Day Project: 26

This morning I completed my doodle comic for week 4 and it turned out better than I expected. I just hope that I get inspiration for my next comic. After that was done, it was time to run my Saturday errands IN the -°22F weather. It was awful. On the way home I saw these trees. Even though humans mutilated the branches so electric can run to houses it looked like it stood defiantly and grew wings. Oh, I also got a chance to use my 2x zoom lens on my phone. I need the EXTRA zoom lens. Ugh, it is what it is.

This is going to be quick as I’m exhausted dealing with snow, work, kids, you know life in general. I’m not feeling too good about weigh-in tomorrow so I’m going to head to bed and sleep my worries away.

365 Day Project: 22

I had every intention of getting out and taking my picture before night but the school let out early due to the impending storm and the kids made plans. Rushing around trying to get everything done and it’s just NOW starting to snow! I needed to improvise and stayed in the neighborhood and didn’t get out of the car. Umm…it’s cold enough I half expect penguins to knock on the door wanting fish! The color palette is listed below.

365 Day Project: 19

I was letting the dog out this morning or rather watching my husband-I just wanted to see how much snow we got when I thought I had a perfect shot. Playing with composition and lighting and adding my usual editing taps I was happy with the final image. Again, I managed a complementary color palette and the hex codes are listed below. Happy Saturday everyone. I was super productive creatively today.
