Little Things Thursday (8)

It is time for Little Things Thursday once again!  I trust we have all had a great first week of 2014!  So far I have kept up with my 365 project, and started knitting.  I’m 1/4 way into a scarf!

I’ve learned a couple things about my 365 project in just this first week.  The main thing is that while I am striving to take a decent photo a day, I simply cannot blog a post a day.  It is counterproductive to all I know to be true about blogging, and it is hard to post meaningful posts when you feel like you a running a post mill.  So…starting next week, I am going to have to go back to my normal posting schedule and just include multiple 365 images per post.   Meanwhile, I am posting my images to my flickr page to keep them all in one place.


Alpaca hat

It has been so cold this week, so I remembered the Alpaca woolen hats that I bought in Peru this past September.  We stepped outside for just 3-4 minutes in 20 degree weather for a quick image.  And yes, he is a handsome boy.  I know what you are thinking, and I’m thinking it too…but let’s just leave it unsaid…since this blog is primarily a legacy of memories for my kiddos. 🙂

So let’s see what you have been capturing this New Year!

  2. I love your black and white portraits… perfect.

  3. Good luck with your 365 Project. I know just how tough it can be, but I have it all organist and filed now and that makes it much easier. Also, with regard to posting everyday… that is why I created a completely separate space for my 365 Project so that my other blog does not become cluttered.

    Glad you’re staying warm! Alpaca hats are a great choice for that!

    I’m doing a 365 too and found that it’s a lot easier taking the pictures every day than doing a post. At least I put them in my flickr album and that keeps me accountable to myself.

  6. I think it’s great you have been able to keep up with your 365 – that is tough. I did one year & then had to cut it back. I often felt that I would take so many pics on certain days that they should count towards the other days when I couldn’t pick up the camera. 🙂

    Happy Thursday my friend!!

  7. I don’t think encompasses what the temperatures we’ve experienced this week in the states. Stay warm!

  8. It’s funny that you are reflecting on this at this time (which is perfect). I was thinking about what I want to commit to, and that was the inspiration for today’s blog post.
    BTW, looking at your son…wow, he’s a true mirror of you.

  9. Well, if the original way of knitting starts wearing on you…which I hope it doesn’t. You can always try your hand at loom knitting, which is what I do. I did a few posts on this, if you would like to look at them. I had such trouble keeping my stitches with all the same tension…the reason I turned to the loom. ☺ I love the mustard color you picked…Tell precious boy…what a gem he is about being such a cute model.

  10. I understand where you’re coming from. I have a hard time keeping up with my blogs and my artwork too.

  11. Okay, I won’t say it. Yes, the 365 project. I started my second on July 1 so I’m smack dab in the middle. This week has gone gangbusters as the sun was out and I could chase it around my house. Today is grey, grey, grey … and so are my creative juices. Ackkk!

  12. ARGH!!!!! Had a whole reply typed out and somehow it didn’t post!!!!!! Oh well…suffice it to say I did NOT mention what you didn’t want us to mention in that post 🙂

  13. I love the idea of posting multiple 365 posts in one…kind of like I did on day 3…including 1-3…because it doesn’t really leave much room for sharing anything else if that is all we are posting. Though, each new day brings a new photo and I am finding the challenge to look for creative and different things quite refreshing!

  14. Sorry for this additional comment…it really means nothing other than I can’t figure out why I’m getting an “error” post when I try to cmment. Just checking out a theory.

  15. Trying one more time to comment. Sorry you are having problems today! Isn’t technology great? :/

  16. He’s perfect. Love the B&W.

  17. Serendipity is Sweet says:

    Handsome indeed! Beautiful photograph Kim. I love the hat.

  18. Hi Kim! First time playing Little Things 🙂 Great black and white picture of your handsome boy.

  19. Beautiful portrait!

    I’m sending this comment to test if it’s working for you. (P.S. I use WordPress)

  20. Oh, how I love a kid in a hat. 🙂 And, now it’s the rain. Stay dry, my friend!

  21. Healed By His Wounds says:

    Striking photography, as always, Kim. Have fun with the knitting… Maybe we’ll get to see your completed scarf in a portrait coming soon? You can do it!

    Blessings to you this New Year,
