September Photo a Day Challenge wrap up

Can you believe that we're wrapping up another month already?

It's continued to work out well having my fat mum slim's photo a day challenge photos on Pinterest, so I put my September photos up there.  I still don't need any more daily content on this blog, Facebook, or Twitter.  You can check out the entire board here (or by clicking on the above photo).  I'm just sharing a few of the highlights in this post today.

Day 1: You, Now
 At the Kenosha lakefront. I'm wearing this t-shirt, and yes, it is wet. That's the price that you pay for trying to get a cool photograph and not watching where the wave is going.

Day 2: Father
My parents and my mom's mom the last time they were visiting Milwaukee.

Day 4: In My Mailbox
I ordered my first ever MOO cards. (Etsy sellers can still take advantage of this free offer.) It was way past time for me to get some sort of card with my HubPages URL. I also ordered the second two books in the Hunger Games series.

Day 5: Bright
In case you haven't seen enough flower pictures from me the past few months.

Day 6: Every Day
I work on some type of craft project pretty much every day.

Day 8: At Night
Angel is crazy about her fresh water. I change it twice a day just because she enjoys it so much.

Day 13: Table
I finally found something perfect to coordinate with my little fall button tree.

Day 17: In My Fridge
One of the souvenirs that we brought back from the Wisconsin Dells last month was cheese.

Day 21: Sometimes
Sometimes I get to do amazing custom work.

Day 25: Frame
Edi, you'll appreciate this! It is an engraved frame, and the detail work is beautiful. We ordered it at the Wisconsin State Fair and got it in the mail earlier this month. Dominican is where Jake went for undergrad.

Again, you can check out the entire set of September photos on Pinterest right here.

It's hard to believe that I have nearly completed four straight months of this challenge (I still have a few days left this month to finish my final prompts). I'm not as surprised that I have been successful with it as I am surprised that so much time has passed already.

As we move into the final crunch for the holiday shows and my freelance writing loads continue to be as full as ever, this photo challenge is going on hold for a little while. I'll still be doing the Sunday Scavenger Hunt and I Heart Macro challenges every week, which will keep my photography skills going strong. This has been an amazing experience, and I hope to pick it up again sometime in 2013.

If you'd like to participate in October, the challenge list is right here.

What have you been photographing lately?


  1. I'm in awe of that frame! You're right, the detail is so amazing!!! It's got my wheels turning!
    The "wet" self-portrait cracks me up :) And I love your newest custom order!

  2. The Hunger Games! I'm irrationally excited for you. Have you finished them yet?

  3. Another great month of photos! Did your family know they were helping with the project or are they finding out now? Mmmm, cheese! That's funny about the waves! Too bad there's no photo of that! My kitties love fresh water too -usually right out of the sink! Your custom order is lovely! I really like your table decorations too. Angel is such a good kitty to leave those alone since it'd be on the floor here. :)

  4. Ooh, I love your button tree with the little pumpkin on top - I remember the ones you made for Christmas very well - So pretty!
    Your hair is longer than mine now ;-)

  5. How cool. I take such awful pictures. I'm not allowed to touch our cameras. It's pitiful. You did a great job this month and I'm sure you'll do a great job next month too.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  6. I love the picture a day idea. I always feel I don't have enough time, but I think I might give it a try. Your pictures look great, it was fun looking through all of them. I love that frame, beautiful.

  7. How neat! You should really enjoy those books!

  8. I love that shot of the custom piece! You have been doing so great with these photo challenges - nice work!

  9. These photo challenges are so much fun to see. I haven't participated in one (yet), but I've really enjoyed viewing them. Have fun reading the rest of The Hunger Games series (loved it)! And, thanks for the linky on those MOO cards. I've been wanting to try those out. =)

  11. Great photos! Bubba and Punkie like their fresh water too. I just recently have been buying bottled water for them because of Bubba's past bladder problems. Love those little guys!

  12. I've heard about the hunger games. One of the girls at work was reading it and was raving over it.

  13. Dear Rose, It is hard to believe that Sept. is almost over!! The month flew by. Very nice family pictures. I never get tired of looking at pictures. I miss doing the drops and visiting my EC friends. I am trying to keep up. Blessings dear. Catherine xo

  14. Nice to see your family! I'll go check out the rest of your pictures!

  15. Your photos are not only good, the stories behind them are so interesting! I love how you share these little pieces of your life!

  16. I need to do a challenge like this. I've been taking photos every day - this sounds right up my alley! :)

  17. I am always inspired by you Rose. I am gonna give the photoaday challenge a try this month!
