365 Day Post: 93

Ok, I buckled. I know weigh-in is tomorrow and I think I did pretty good. It was paint night with the girls last weekend and I tried calculating the points as best as possible. Tonight though, I had a RELENTLESS sweet tooth and the seasoning drive-in style diner serves some of the best ice cream and turtle sundaes. Yup, I got one and I don’t regret NOTHING!

I’m also trying to get used to posting from my phone since I will be attending a heathen gathering and camping. I want to be able to candidly capture images to post.

365 Day Project: 88

I managed to do my evening errands and exhaustion is setting in. I have coffee with the kiddo then I need to get things together for paint night with the ladies from the kindred. Tonight I’m posting from my phone. This is what temptation looks like.

I didn’t know what else to take a picture of and how do you make something as mundane as shopping racks look like a decent photo? I tried playing with the perspective of different elements in the photo such as lights, floor and clothes and still using a rule of thirds. You know what I learned? That’s difficult but I’m super happy with the results.

I’m mentally exhausted and need to finish prepping my portfolio sample presentation for the job interview on Thursday. I’m wondering if I should pick up new spring semi-casual attire for the interview? I worry about that later but for today’s photo my son handed me his new socks and I had the idea to use this little lost kitty for the image. Happy Tuesday Y’all!

365 Day Post: 84

I took it easy on myself today and almost fell asleep when I remembered I didn’t post the image for today. I have come 84 days now without missing a day and I’m not about to start now. I may do it a few minutes before the midnight deadline with only sparse copy but I made it (I’ll usually go back and edit the next day).

Today’s photo was done and to tell you the truth I have NO IDEA what these little guys are. My husband got them for me (it was a mystery box type of thing) and reassured me that they have been around for a while in the TMNT world. I’ll take his word for it as I’m more of a Batman girl.

After a beautifully anxious night, we decided to stop for breakfast and my husband pulled this little guy from his pocket. I almost wanted to give the project up for today and rest but he pushed me in the right direction. The lost kitty looks like he’s contemplating a great deal sitting on toast with grape jelly below.

Happy Sunday Y’all!

365 Day Project: 80

I went outside! Then the wind was all, ‘Nah girl. I’m fixin’ to make it unbearably cool and knock over your toy.’ I found the perfect location. A drain with water running in it had the light on it and it looked great. That wind made it chilly and it was powerful enough to keep knocking over the figure. I didn’t want to chance losing it down the drain. I made a promise to my son that he can have ALL the toys and legos after the project was over. Secretly, I’ve been giving some to him so my husband doesn’t notice a slew of toys.

Tonight’s post is a bit late. I took my husband to the library to get his card. There I learned that they put puzzles together in their free time. I had a wonderful idea that would help me cope with my past but that will be for another post. Tonight’s photo is of a character figure that my son threw in my purse and I discovered it. Sitting there…begging for a photo-op.

Well…I’m hosting a ‘boys’ night. My son has a friend over, do boy things, and eat pizza. I’ll leave out the burping contest winning results (you’ll thank me). I thought it would be a great time to pull out a ninja turtle. I can do better but I thought this was cute.

Last night my husband and I were invited out to drink at several St. Paddy’s night events. As usual, we opted out because we are getting old and drinking all night isn’t as appealing as when we were young. This morning however I had made plans to have a traditional Irish breakfast with another couple that would include the ‘Dublin Bloody Mary.’ We showed up, got a message that they weren’t going to make it. I’m just going to leave out the weak explanation. My husband and I enjoyed a great breakfast but the cancel (4th time in a row) put me in a bummer mood.

For today’s photo, I decided on happy upbeat colors and decided books for the happy reading lost kitty would be great. And since I had such a heavy breakfast I’m off to make a salad. Happy Sunday Y’all!

This morning was mine and my son’s ‘coffee date’. This is where he gets hot chocolate and I get coffee. He was a little disappointed that I told him, ‘no toys’ as I wanted to try my hand at a ‘moody’ coffee photo or as I just learned, ‘lifestyle’ photography. I need more practice. But the barista did awesome making this look yummy.

I waited until after Friday errands to take and post the photo and I wish I hadn’t. I feel like I’m being rushed and I can’t figure out why. Tonight’s post was taken while we were out for dinner before going to the grocery store. I have a coffee date with my son in the morning then shopping for a painting project for the kiddos at our kindred’s Ostar celebration, so I’ll be busy. Pretty sure my project photo will be late tomorrow. Here we are lost kitties racing. I’m enjoying the bright color palette that these lost kitties figures offer.

I think my moods are definitely affecting my images. Or, it could be a few minutes of sunshine and warm weather. Either way, I’m feeling positive and REALLY hopeful I will land this job. It’s such a positive work environment and there’s actual teamwork! But let me get back on track, tonight’s image is of me taking advantage of the melting snow and HUGE puddles forming. Luckily, I had just the little toy figure to use. With the color palette, I was trying to capture happy or warm colors with a bright cooler hue. I was even able to capture falling water!

I didn’t do much in the styling of this picture. There’s much more to it than the legos that were put together. This is what it looks like when I’m functioning with anxiety and depression all while trying to seem like everything is OK. I tried to do some editing and even like the grainy vintage effect that I was able to achieve. The complimentary palette almost translates Harry Potter but not quite.

Today was a busy day for a Sunday but that’s for a different post. Today’s image is of a new art medium I’m wanting to get better at…Henna. I went the black and white route for this one because it seems to suit the image subject better. I’m running late posting this. Thanks, daylight savings time (that was pure sarcasm).

I have been super lazy. Well, I did get on the treadmill so that counts for something. This weather maker moving in is making everything dark and gloomy out and I’ve opted for looking up lego sets. My wishlist item is Hogwarts Castle 71043. Love love LOVE this set and I need the challenge and the calming effect building these sets have.

Today with it being dark I thought I would play more with lighting and using candles. My son was kind enough to let me borrow his lost kitty wizard for today’s photo. I think I’m really going outside my comfort zone and learning more aspects of lighting and trying tricks photographers would try. Thinking outside the box has been a comfort and to tell you the truth I’m going to need another 365 Day project to complete when the year is up.

365 Day Project: 66

Today I was SLAMMED with work. It was almost as if they wanted to stress. Instead, I let it pile up as they intended, told them it will get done when it gets done, and focused on tasks at hand. I had my phone interview after work. I don’t think I will move on in the process due to my lack of skill being used where I’m at now but I’m ok with that. Tonight, I was super happy with the playful photo of the lost kitty toy. Unfortunately, the ice, snow, and windchill temps are making driving difficult. Tomorrow is going to be super busy but let us start with tonight’s photo.

The color palette I chose is obviously a custom one but how wonderfully summer-ish bright the colors are!

I have been in a slump since lunch. Maybe it’s the week of stress so far catching up? Maybe I’m not challenged enough (I kind of call BS on that)? Or maybe, it’s my soul that’s tired. I have a phone interview to prepare for and making notes for both technical questions and obvious general questions. I would like to get my hopes up but I’m going to err on the side of caution and keep more realistic.

I’ve been refreshing my coding skills and WOW! If you don’t lose it you definitely lose it. Made dinner and cake to thank the hubby for working overtime so I am wearing down. This little lost kitty image helped brighten my day. I tried choosing a monochromatic palette but wondering now if it qualifies.

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!

365 Day Project: 63

I had a wonderful idea looking into my box of toys but it would take me into the women’s bathroom at work. A number of thoughts and doubts came into my head and I almost talked myself out of it. I thought a little longer and decided that during lunch not many people would be in there. I was right. I LOVE how this dramatic scene unfolded. I think THIS one is my favorite so far.
