I decided to try something new, and join one of Sally Russick's photo challenges. This one is a mini challenge called Ordinary Extraordinary Everyday. It lasts for 15 days, and we have a prompt for each day. We take pictures that we feel go along with the prompt and then every 5 days we post our pictures. This is the first week, and I should warn you if you are new to my blog - there will be Basset Hound pictures on my posts.
Probably Lots of them. Be prepared for extreme cuteness.
Day 1, Reflection:
This is my Günter. He was my first Basset Hound. He's been on my mind a lot lately because his birthday is this month, and March will be 2 years ago that we lost him - he was 7. He was my heart dog and I miss him a lot. My wonderful in-laws sent us this beautiful picture and poem after he passed away.
Day 2, Wrapping:
I did warn you about the Bassets. This is Heidi. I end up wrapping her up in a blanket and tucking her in nearly every night as she snuggles next to me on the couch. She is a sweet girl and this picture just makes me smile.
Day 3, Kitchen Ritual:
Every morning, I have coffee in this awesome mug (yes I am slightly obsessed). The mug is from Barbara Donovan's Etsy shop. I love her work. Of course I have to drink Basset coffee in it. My favorite coffee is from Moon Doggie, Their coffee is amazing, and it makes my morning a lot better. The bags behind the mug are Tiramisu and Budderscotch Toffee. Yum! They donate to Basset Rescue and have amazing coffee. It's a win all around.
Day, 4 Paper:
These are my favorite (right now) scrapbook papers. I want to use them and yet I don't because then they will be gone. Maybe I will just look at them a little longer.
Day 5, Repetitive Pattern:
This is a necklace I'm doing for a friend's birthday present. 15 ovals. I am putting it together tomorrow and she'll get it Saturday. I am a little tired of ovals right now, but I think she will like it. The pattern for this is in Diane Fitzgerald's book Shaped Beadwork. I really love this book, it's awesome.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my pictures, please take a look at what the other participants came up with for the prompts. Don't forget to join me on 2/11 for the next post!
