Photo blogging #challenge April 2019 #color #photoblog

The theme for April’s photo blogging challenge hosted by http://hoohaa.com/ was COLOR MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND. I need to confess something: I did not actively participate in this challenge. However, when I looked at my pictures from April, I saw I have more than enough to share on this topic!

Without further ado, here are my pictures on the theme.

These are my pictures for this month’s photo challenge.

Picture #1

I went to Maker faire Miami and they had this cute little craft where you paint using an airbrush method with markers.

Picture #2

At the same event, I made one of these. The hardest part of this was picking out enough of the little plastics of the color that I wanted. After the melting process, I put a magnet on the back.

April is my wedding anniversary month. We went to an axe throwing place for a fun date. I enjoyed it! It was like darts but with axes. Of course, hubs got top points. I surprised myself and got bullseye too.

Picture #4
I love flowers.

Picture #5
I helped hubby make lard soap. I added essential oils for scent and mica for a little shimmer effect.

To quote another blogger GeoKs

While you’re there, please consider joining us next month! Participation is like taking on a low-stress photo assignment, which you can use to refine your photography skills. Any camera will do: your phone, a pocket-sized point and shoot, the DSLR that’s been gathering dust somewhere or a film camera. For each month’s theme, you’re asked to share five photos; the amount of accompanying text is up to you.

Photo blogging #challenge January 2019 #books #photoblog

The theme for January’s photo blogging challenge hosted by http://hoohaa.com/ was BOOKS. I thought it would be a no brainer for me because books are my life. I read all the time. HOWEVER, I realized with this challenge that I do not take pictures of my books. The pictures that I took this month are not very creative/artistic, but they do tell stories about me.

Without further ado, here are my pictures on the theme.

I love reading and I have a Kindle unlimited subscription so that I can read lots of books. My goal on Goodreads is to read over 100 books over the course of 2019. Can you guess what my favorite genre is?

 

I like the feel of physical books, but I have a Kindle too. When I made the jump to digital books, I was unsure how I would feel about it. Fast forward to now, I love my paperwhite. On a good night, I am snuggled with a blanket with my Kindle in hand.

 

Talking about a different type of book, this is a sticker book that I use for decorating my planner. I have To-Do lists a mile long and using decorative stickers helps jazz it up. My favorite brand is MAMBI (Me and My Big Ideas). They always have super cute stickers. Their Free Spirit book was a recent release to their sticker book collection.  I like the style because it uses a lot of the colors I like: blue, grey, pastels, and rose gold.

 

One of my goals in 2019 is to have better time management, especially when on social media. A guy at work was giving this book away and I took it. I am looking forward to reading and gaining some insights to put into action this year!

These are my pictures for this month’s photo challenge.

Photo blogging #challenge October 2017 #mychoice #photoblog

The theme for October photo blog and challenge hosted by http://hoohaa.com was Photographer’s Choice. I did not take any artistic shots this month. My pictures were more about the fun, interesting things I was doing. I think I will find my inner artist in November.

Photo 1
We were hanging out with friends and decided to play dominoes. I ended up winning this round.

Photo 2
I helped with a fundraiser for the Soup Kitchen called “Empty Bowls”. I made two bowls: one to donate and one for myself. Making the bowl was easier than you think. The professional potter worked the clay in advance. All I had to do was mold it in a bowl shape and paint it. This is the bowl I kept. I liked the way it looked after firing in the kiln.

Photo 3
I told hubs that I wanted to melt glass. He made this kiln at our house and then we tried to get it hot enough to actually melt glass. That was easier said than done. The temperature is half of what we needed it to be to do what we wanted. Yes. That says 1,110 degrees F!!!!

Photo 4
October means Beer tastings! The beer tasting was held at Montagues. I don’t go for the beer. I go for the food 🙂 The lovely item is a collard green wonton with red eye gravy reduction. It was so delicious!!! Just looking at the picture makes me want a plate of these right now.

Photo 5
All my posts could be food related this month. LOL This is from Bulla in Atlanta. I loved their bar setup. I wish I had taken a better picture to really showcase all the different ingredients for their cocktails. I ordered Sangria Blanca and it had blueberries and strawberries. Yum!!!

These were just a few of the pictures that I chose for October.

Photo Blogging #Challenge April 2016 theme: #Vibrant #photoblog

April’s theme for the photo blogging challenge hosted by http://hoohaablog.com/ was VIBRANT. When I think vibrant, I think full of color. Thankfully, it’s spring time and all the plants are in full bloom. The true challenge this month was choosing which photos to use.

Picture 1

I played in a golf tournament and got to meet LPGA legend Nancy Lopez. She was gracious enough to take a selfie with me. I was wearing my vibrant pink golf shirt because it was so comfy. I got tips from a pro, but my golf game is not much better.

Picture 2

I planted kale in our garden. I love the vibrant green color. It grown enough over the last few weeks that I have started eating a little bit of it. Delish!

Picture 3

While on our anniversary trip (5years this April), I got a spa treatment. I loved colors of the creams and scrubs used. And they smelled as good as the looked too. At the end, I was throughly relaxed.

Picture 4

My amaryllis plants are in full bloom!

Picture 5

I participated in the Color Vibe 5k near where I live. The young lady in the pic with me is the daughter of my friend and I affectionately call her my mini me. We were showered in powder of various bright colors as we ran/jogged/walked the course. Definitely a fun way to exercise.
