Scavanger Hunt and I Heart Macro on Monday

Welcome to another edition of the photo Scavenger Hunt and I Heart Macro!  Enjoy!

1) Portrait
Like many pet photos, this wasn't exactly what I planned because Angel didn't want to sit still for the camera, but that's okay.  I still love how this turned out.

2) Nostalgic
This is one of our engagement photos.  I'm not nostalgic about being engaged, planning a wedding, or living in a time when we had a lot certainty about where we were going with the next few years in our lives.  I'm actually nostalgic about my long hair.  I had long hair for about 20 years.  I started keeping it shorter 4 years ago.  Although I still love my hair, long or short, I'm also still waiting to feel like myself when I look the mirror.

3) Time
I got Jake this watch for his med school graduation in the spring.  It's a replica of a famous pocket watch that Abraham Lincoln owned.  Jake had never owned a nice watch before and he loves history so I thought this would be a good gift as he entered a new professional world.  He loves it.

4) Full of Light
We don't own a lot of Christmas ornaments (shocking, I know...don't most people have more than they know what to do with?), so we decorated our tree with a lot of lights and a new star this year.

5) Motion
Actually I just wanted to post a picture of myself because I feel like I didn't stop moving between my November and December shows.  But this was the culmination of most of my hard work this past month.  I'll share how everything went later this week.

Here's my shot for I Heart Macro.  I did my best to take at least a few shots of all of the new pieces that I made before Christmas in the Country for posterity.  This button bracelet design keeps doing well so I keep making more.

  3. Nicely done - I just grew mine out a few years ago after several years of keeping my hair short.

  4. You seemed way too young to be getting married--ugh, I don't want to look at my old photos--nothing is the same.

    Great photo of your bracelet.

    It’s a Wrap Link Party at Artful Rising

    I miss the thought of having long hair...but not washing, drying, brushing! I'm loving my shorter hair :)

  10. Angel is so pretty with her white whiskers! That's a great photo of you and Jake. I hate the way I look with short hair so I keep it longer even though it's a pain sometimes.
