100 days :: halfway

I have a love-hate relationship with the 100 Days project. At the start, I’m always gungho and keen to create some amazing things. By about day 20, I’m either completely obsessed, or have forgotten the darn thing exists. Around the time of day twenty this year, life was being particularly lifeish. I was in a rut of the worst kind, […]

100 Days 2024

Every year, I say I’m going to do #the100daysproject. Every year, I get at least a week in. Most years, that’s as far as it goes. I think I’ve finished exactly twice. The infamous 2020 “pandemic breakdown but make it productive” major shift, and last year, technically, counts as a finish, even if that finish came about thanks to a […]

my everyday life

Two lifetimes ago, I followed quite a few photography blogs, and spent almost as much time on Flickr as I now do on instagram. It was a fun, positive, encouraging community to be part of, and I found myself getting swept up in the tidal wave of project365 excitement coming into 2010. It was set to be a massive year […]

the great photo test

As mentioned in my recent Project Life post, I was wanting to test out photo printing options and decide how I was going to do it. In one corner was the quality and ease of sending off the images to a lab for printing and posting back to me, balancing against the convenience of printing at home as I put […]

Still life…

Ever since I was young, there was something about the feel of a camera in my hand that spoke to my soul. The ability to create photos that stir emotion, evoke memories, freeze a moment in time, it seemed almost like magic. And though my current collection of cameras and lenses are a long way from the simple little disposable […]

It’s all about me…

Day two, and I’m still here! The above photo is a small insight into my lack of crafting and blogging recently. I’ve spent way too much time in front of my computer, and the polaroid (nifty little toy, it is!) shows the area to the immediate left of my computer. The pink book standing up is my much-loved Adele Basheer […]

Sailing…

I’ve been on a cruise. On a large boat. Merrily sailing in ignorant bliss up that famous Egyptian river. Yep, that’s the one. Da Nile. And why, I hear you ask, am I in denial? I have just realized that as of today, there is one month until Christmas. 30 days. I’ve been so busy trying to keep my head […]

Flowers & flare

Just a couple of images I found as I was sorting through my current card.   A sweet pink camellia:   Some yummy sun flare: This one is my favourite of the two images. It just seems to have an air of vintage whimsy that appeals to my girlishness.   Lots of crafty stuff happening this weekend, a bit of […]
