WW & #iPPP ~ #photoadayaug ~ Part One

Time to share some #photoadayaug (photo a day August) photos! I'm snapping along with Fat Mum Slim's community.  Here we go...

Bonnie, the cat, suns the tips of her paws every morning.
My girl completed the local library's summer reading program, which gave her a coupon for one personal pizza from Round Table.  And since she doesn't have any gluten restrictions, she was all over it.  (Don't worry, her brother was having a blast at the pool that day!)

Grabbed some pocket change...easy peasy.

Reading time.

Gotta love the irony of snapping a pic of my Nikon camera with my Samsung phone.

Massive writing block meant time to edit until breaking through.

Right then, I got a newish li'l ditty stuck in my head after hearing it for the first time...a mashup of Carly Rae Jepson's 'Call Me Maybe' and Gotye's 'Somebody I Used to Know' by Pomplamoose.  Like many an other, both songs are often dancing through my brain, why not put them together?!

Used my glasses for #photoadayjuly #eyes, so grabbed my clips for #glasses!

While spending an evening out with my boy, we navigated around one messed up parking lot.

It was late & I was short a photo.  Thankfully, there's an app for that!  Thanks Skitch & Pixlr-O-Matic!

Purple cabbage and carrot salad for dinner that night makes me think of the real life fairytale, The Purple Orb.  Happy sighs.

Love this li'l demitasse flatware set!

Simple beauty from an heirloom tomato.  Delicious too!

My girl found the arrow on the mountain bike's tires.  Love that.

The parking garage is ready for flaming catastrophe!  Kidlets and I had just come out of the theater after seeing Ice Age 4: Continental Drift and think my mind drifted to disasters. Oy.

Both kidlets have gotten in on the photo-a-day challenge action around here.  Every morning, they ask me what the theme is for the day.  And I just love the ideas they come up with!  Sometimes I use them, sometimes I go my own way.

And there we have it - #photoadayaug from the 1st through the 15th.  I've been sharing my pics as I take them on Instagram.  You can find me @timecrafted over there.  Come say hello - I'd love to see what snippets are a part of your day!

  1. I didn't know you had gluten issues, too! Pizza is a big deal around here with the celiac 3yo.

    Aren't heirloom tomatoes just amazing??

    I love that your kids play along with the pictures!!

  2. Good morning Karen! I love the kitty paw shot. And I swear I have the same snap on sunglasses for my drivers! AND I have a bag of tomatoes in my fridge!

    Hey... you can upload photos from your Samsung phone? I need help! I can't seem to do it! Please send instructions. I have downloaded software from Verizon, and don't have an icon to do anything!

    Have a great day!

  3. You have some very creative shots for the photo a day challenge. Love how you think outside the box on some of them.

  4. LOVE those pictures. And it is great that your kids are in on that as well.
    Gives me an idea for my kids! :)

  5. I always love your photos! You are one I look out for on Instagram. Have a great day!

  6. That tomato is fancy!

    And omgosh craving pizza now.

  7. I love this. I just started the #photoaday challenge this month, and I've had lots of fun. I kind of want to hear that Gotye/Call Me Maybe mashup now.

  8. Love! So fun to see on Instagram and then what I've missed here! :)

  9. wow,I could really use you to help me photograph my stuff. That is half the reason I lost my interest for blogging...I SUCK at photography!!!!maybe I should just invest in a nice camera and take photos every day until I get good!!! lol

    have a great weekend! xOxO

    1. Deb,

      You're so sweet - thanks! These photos are all taken with the camera on my phone. I run them through Instagram and on occasion Pixlr-O-Matic, but it's easy peasy and takes far less time than when I'm using the Nikon and photo editing. Blogging is the reason I started getting better at photography, but I've got miles to learn still. :> Love seeing you on here!



Thank You for visiting! I appreciate and am grateful for all of You who craft some of Your time to leave me comments!
