Project 365: weeks 1 & 2

May 10, 2010

I think Project 365 is going to be one of the more challenging aspects of my Project 26.  I’m not really a natural at photography, but I really like the idea of documenting this year. I’ve already had a few days where I only barely remembered to snap a picture before going to bed!

There are a ton of flickr groups, or the project365.org website to participate in.  I’m not sure if I’ll upload there, but I plan to post a mosaic every week or two here. I know a few people who did a whole year of self portraits, but I don’t know if I could keep up with that and still have fun!  I am loosely planning a photo of me at least once a week (though I didn’t get one this week), and the other photos of something significant for the day.  I may also try to have a few themed weeks….any ideas?

So, here’s the mosaic for the first two weeks!

Project 365: Weeks 1 & 2

  1. Birthday lunch with the family. (To be honest, my Mom took the photo – I’m playing it loose with the rules here!)
  2. My coworkers decorated my cube before I came into work Monday!
  3. Gifts from my youngest brother – he must take after our practical Mom. The socks did come in handy, though!
  4. The Glee soundtrack from my brother, John! I love it.
  5. Came home to a surprise package from Mickenzie! She sent a real letter, which makes me so happy – and encourages me to keep up with #26, which is to send a card every month.
  6. Birthday earrings!
  7. How is it MAY, already?!  These dates are filling up so quickly.
  8. Finishing up Love Walked In for book club.
  9. That’s right – there is a still a Christmas decoration up in my hallway.
  10. Crocheted an orange potholder for my friend Miranda – she just bought a condo and the kitchen is going to have an orange wall.
  11. Laundry day – I clearly know my colors.
  12. Dogsitting over the weekend for this little guy – I didn’t get a good shot of both dogs together.
  13. No – I did not run out of gas, but when I spent Friday getting my starter replaced, the repair guy left me this note so I wouldn’t forget to fill up.
  14. Taking advantage of house-sitting in a home with a jacuzzi tub, and reading the latest JD Robb novel. A pretty perfect Saturday night.

All pictures are, somewhat haphazardly, located in my flickr stream.  One day I’ll get around to organizing it!  You can see a bigger version of the mosaic here, if you want to see more detail.

    I got that book (Love Walked In) for my mom for a birthday or holiday a few years back – she said it was really good!

    Love the photos, Karen! I’m taking the quilting class at Karen Gray Designs. Have you been there? I want at least a yard of every fabric she has! I’m going to be buying a new sewing machine in the next couple of months. Any suggestions on a brand? I’ve been looking at Babylock and Janome but am open to suggestions!
