Shutter Sisters For January

Hard At Work

This is my submission to the Shutter Sister's project for January. This project is based on one word a month, and January's word was whatever word we wanted to use to kind of signify the year for us. I chose Hardwork as my word or theme for this year...and watching this spider outside the window build her web again was just the motivation I needed for this image. It was amazing to see the precision and beauty all wrapped into one.

Week Four MCP Project 52


This is my submission for this week. The theme was soothing repetition. I also had pictures of my curls, and my feet on a walk which are all other soothing repetitions in my life but I liked the modern look of this one the best so that is why it was selected.

I only adjusted the contrast a bit, sharpened 20% and bordered it.

I am still working on the one for the "once a month" project I joined last week. Have to come up with something fast.

Week 3 MCP Project 52


This is my submission for this week to the project. The theme was Shades of Grey. I thought about doing a black and white but then really liked how this one came out so decided to stick with it. Only addition was the border.

Week 2 MCP Project 52

Together Forever, Always -LeAnn Rimes

Here is my image upload for this week. Definitely not my best, but still one that I like. Theme was to illustrate a song...that is why the title is what it is.

Am hoping to get out to some more graveyards today as we continue the Day of the Dead geocache...

Day 23: Something You Wish You Had Done in Your Life

Here we go again....another one that sounds like my life is already over....

I don't know, even at my age, I don't feel like there are too many doors closed to me and those that might be closed aren't necessarily things I regret not having done.

One thing I haven't done for one reason or another that I think I would like to do is be a parent. I don't necessarily want to have my own kids but I think I would be a good mom and I wouldn't mind adopting a kid (even an older one) at some point in the future. Thing is, this is not something that is out of my grasp so I don't know if it fits this question really.

Another thing I want to do that I haven't done as an adult is be a dog owner. I don't know when or if I will do this one any time soon but once again, not a closed door, and I think it would be great to have a dog.

One thing I do wish I had done in my life that is definitely not an option anymore is getting to know the smart, creative, and interesting side of my biological father. He is deceased now but he made some bad choices in life, and this limited the amount that we got to know each other. I don't in any way feel that it is my fault that we didn't get to know each other better, but I still wish we had sometimes. I am sure there are things about myself that I would have learned from knowing him better.

Day 22: Something You Wish You Hadn't Done in Your Life

This is a hard one for me. I don't have a lot of regrets and this question sounds like your life is over which mine is not but I'll see what I can come up with.

The two biggest bad things in my life were not my fault and by saying I wish I hadn't put myself in the situation seems to put blame on me, which I refuse to do. The two men involved in those two instances were completely at fault.

One thing recently I wish I hadn't done would be not taking the stresses and worries of another person more seriously. I think things would be a lot easier for me if I had been paying a bit more attention to the situation at hand. I owe a huge apology for that.
