I've had a pretty good day.  My niece Piper came over for a sleepover with Josie, and they had a great time and I think it shows in this photo.  As for me, my day was made by being included on Noah Scalin's "Make Something 365" blog ( and by the several people who took the time to comment on some of my photos and give some encouraging words.  I had no idea how just knowing that a few people outside of my immediate family were looking at my work would reenergize me to put a little more into this project.  This couldn't have come at a better time.  I've really been feeling down about my photos for the last week or so (as you might be able to tell by my last few posts, which I didn't even bother to comment on).  I'm so grateful to be feeling good about what I'm doing again.

Also, I was particularly inspired by one person who commented and shared her 365 project.  I thought Jessa's "Gratitude 5" idea was so cool I just had to make one myself, so below is a collage of photos that I took today with five things that I am grateful for.  Doing this was the perfect cure for my recent pessimism, so thanks Jessa!  You can see her art at

I'm excited to be inspired by others art as well, I spent a little time checking out a self-portrait 365 project that was also Noah's blog and saw some really great stuff (so be prepared to see more of me soon, maybe) and also to connect with other artists.  Thanks everyone, later!


  1. Yeah! I am so glad you did a gratitude5 post! It really does help with the blues. I've been sick for two weeks and that is where the idea came from - an effort to cheer myself, get out of my funk.

    Your daughter is lovely and I am glad you feel better!

  2. Meg, I share you sentiment and wrote about it on my blog. I support you and think your photos are awesome. Check out Cheers! DMCR
