365 Self-Portraits {4-7/365}

Hello there!  Today is a very rainy day here in Central Colorado, and that’s the way I like it.  Gloomy and rainy days are when I feel my most productive, because I can sit down with a quilt and a hot drink while I craft or blog.  I’m off to an early start too, because I have a lot of new pieces to add to the shop!  (smile) I can’t wait to show them to you, so check back later tomorrow.

Before that though, here are self-portraits 4-7/365!!

Personal Chanllenge: 365 Self-Portraits {1-3/365}

So, as you may know, I just celebrated my 28th Birthday on Saturday!  Yikes!  I can’t believe how each year seems to fly by faster than the next.  Don’t worry though, I’m enjoying every bit of it.

Last Friday I was browsing the Internet and I came across Elsie’s “5 Tips for Better Self Portraits.”  I was able to take so much from that post and I want to thank her for sharing.  In step 4, Elsie briefly touched on how she tried the 365 Self Portrait Challenge and it inspired me to try.  I know it will be hard to continuously think of fresh and creative ways to capture myself and what makes me unique, but I’m up for it.  I think it will only make my image captures that much better in the future.  Plus, it will be fun to see if I change at all in one years time.

I chose to start on my 28th Birthday this year (October 1st)… I thought it was fitting (smile).  So far, I have these three images.  Stay tuned for the next batch and wish me luck!

Pencil-Tip Sculptures

Wow!  I just stumbled upon these and I’m amazed at the level of skill and talent that it would take to create something like this.  Not only is it amazing to me that someone would think of doing this, but it’s also amazing because it’s on such a small scale!  See more over at Bringing Design Home.

Harry Potter…

Happy Sunday!  So, I went to see the last Harry Potter movie today with my family, and we all loved it!  I will not give anything away, so you must see it if you havn’t already.  I literally got goosebumps at parts, because it was so well written and acted out.  Brilliant! 

Welp, I’m going to start sewing and working on my current projects.  I’ll keep you posted.
