I've been searching for a project or challenge to ground me this year. I have an ongoing list to choose from and I'm happy to announce I've made at least one decision. I want to do a self-portrait a day photo challenge. These are two pictures from today. I recently got the iPhone 4 and am loving everything about it. I have a lightroom app on the phone that is absolutely outstanding. I've been playing with a lot of the settings. I love the effects of both of these pictures - love the emotion they convey. Today wasn't a stellar day - if you couldn't tell - and this is one way of documenting that. I feel like the paper part of crafting life is failing me right now - or I'm failing it. In any case, this is one more way to be creative. I'm excited to think of different ways to document me. I have so more ideas to expand the challenge - I'll keep you posted as those come along. I've been gone so long - I'm not really sure if anyone is reading this right now. If you are and have some ideas for innovative ways to take a self-portrait - please let me know. I'm going to need a lot of different ideas. So that's my only update for now. I hope everyone had a nice day. Until then...

Hello! It's been such long time. There have been so many changes in the last three months. I'd love to give a full update - but I think that would take forever. Let me give you a quick rundown.
*I was diagnosed with GERD - no more coffee, no caffeinated tea, chocolate, tomatoes, onions, garlic, citrus, cola sodas, and unfortunately the will to live. Don't get me started on how crazy this food life of mine is right now.
*I made a few scrapbook pages and two mini-books.
*I've stopped making cards - tired of my mass of stamps. New things don't seem to help.
*I went home and realized I need to be closer - like right now.
*I've continued to stalk my favorite blogs.
*I've enrolled in three more online classes.
*I got an iPhone and Barnes & Noble Nook Color. Santa was very good to me!
*I've fallen in love with a number of iPhone apps.
*I got a flat screen TV and thought about killing a cat.
*I've missed this blog terribly.
So...now I'm back and a little worse for wear - but happy to be here. I have some plans in the works for the blog and can't wait to tell you about my big plans for 2011...coming soon. I hope everyone is having a wonderful new year. Until then...
