Hello there Internets.....this blog needs to be dusted off. I've been a busy little person, and finding myself spread a bit thin. I even went to work this Saturday...that NEVER happens.
I'm finding myself being so very forgetful. This self portrait project hasn't been high priority, and the week often flies by without my remembering to get the shot. I had to get two shots this week to make up for missing out last week. oops.
The theme was: FALL
Here is a shot of me driving in the rain.
The theme for this past week was: Black and White
Here is a shot of me outside my home today. I think I was feeling a bit blue when I took it. I really did have a good day, but I don't look all that happy in this shot.
The theme for this coming week is: Thankful

This Halloween had some pretty un-fantastic weather, BUT....I couldn't complain because we are safely nestled here on the west coast, and my mind is on those who weathered Hurricane Sandy this week. A lot of rain here.....really isn't anything compared to that, so I set my thoughts on enjoying our Hallween evening no matter what.
Funny story....LAST year my Sugar Bear wanted to be a butterfly, but noooooooooooooooooooooo.....I mentioned the possibility of being Rapunzel from the movie Tangeled, and BLAM.....I had two months of crazy planning and sewing to do. I don't regret it one bit......but I wasn't ready to be THAT committed this Halloween, so I was more than thrilled when Sugar mentioned being a Butterfly again. Whew......
She even requested that we keep it simple. So we totally did, and she loved her costume just the same.
I purchased the wings. We loved that they weren't the stiff....hanging off your back sort of wings. She didn't want to be bumping into everyone all the time. I did embellish them a bit with some gems and sequins. So pretty.
I made her antennae with wire and beads. We both thought it was really pretty and cute.
She was happy with how quick and easy it was to put on her costume. :)
Trick or Treating was great. She flew all around, and enjoyed her butterfly freedom.

Theme/prompt for the week was: SCARY
okay...okay...okay....so I really really really wanted to take the time to play with this theme, but ACK....so busy. I didn't have a chance. That's okay though. I took some quick up close snaps of my face and got quite a scare. Gee.....I'm getting old.
The theme/prompt for this coming week is: FALL
