Something Good!

Today's the big day when Send Something Good partners are revealed!  I received my package on a busy day & didn't have time to open it til late at night.  Crappy for pictures but I couldn't wait!  Everything was wrapped which made for fun and extended opening.

Inside Gentri had included things to represent so many of my interests, and lots of turquoise, my favourite colour.

As much fun as this was to receive I had even more fun making the package for my other partner April!  Again, it was a late night project (no photos) but if you head over to April's blog she did a great job photo documenting the package and her super cute daughter makes a guest appearance!

This project was such a fun way to meet new bloggers!  There's talk of another swap happening in the fall... just sayin'.

Here's links to other Something Good participants!  Have fun!

A Week in the Life

Are any of you familiar with Ali Edwards' Week in the Life project?  The idea is to record a week in your life: all the normal, ordinary bits that often get overlooked.  I'd heard about it before but this is the first time I've tried it.  Looking back on my pictures I realized I seem to be a bit shy getting my camera out around other people, notice the lack of them in these shots?  Part of it is that at work there are privacy/confidentiality issues so I couldn't take pictures there but I did see people outside of work... they just didn't make it in front of the camera! Something to work on for the next time Week in the Life comes around!
