The First 12

...the first 12 photos I took for the Ella Publishing Take Twelve Photo Challenge. And it was hard. (I don't know how you Project Lifers do it!) I kept forgetting to take pictures so I had to fill in the next day (shhh, don't tell anyone). Next month I vow to be more prepared and mindful. So, here are my first 12 photos. Let me caution you that the 12th was Thursday - which was a pretty boring day in my world. Work, carpools and pouring rain.
....in the first first batch - typical breakfast of choice, carpooling (fyi: I took that photo after I dropped off the kids at school :), work...

...in the second batch - a perplexing sign on my side of the highway, refueling Jersey style (ie: stay in the car/do not touch gas pump), a quick stop at the pharmacy where Valentine's Day is in full effect & my little 'bucket filler' of the month!

...the third batch: calendar review, some happy mail (snail style), busy night dinner choice and an overdue library book.

Yesterday I was happy to see the crafty mojo return in time to wrap up my first official Elle's Studio projects for the month. Looking forward to sharing those with you later in the week. Elle's got some really fun stuff in store for next month. Can't wait to share that too.

Back tomorrow with some good crafty news (it's been a great month!).
Thanks for stopping by!

I really enjoy seeing the similarities and differences of a typical day half a world away. In New Zealand you would die of old age if you stayed in your car to get gas!

I can't wait to see your first ES projects! Something about winter makes me not want to take photos :(

Great slices of life. I am partial to that pretty door.

Love your pics! I decided to play along with this in my own way & have to admit to "filling" in some pics too. I'm with you on PL-not doing it again this year. The first year was enough for me! ;)

love how you grouped each set of photos. I only tool 2-3 photos that day. I kept forgetting my camera too:)

FABULOUS! It really is about mindful and it does get easier with time - as all routines do! Great start, Valerie :)
