Project 365-Pictures!!!!

I am going to participate in another Project 365. I usually blog on my Wordpress site, but I wanted to become familiar with Blogger. You can find my other ramblings at I am just doing pictures here.

I decided to do the 365 pictures because I am already doing a picture a day of Roz for her first year, so I thought I might try this as well. I am looking for things that will help pull my creativity out of the slumps and this is the year to do it!

Warning: My pictures will not be professional. They will probably not be as great as those that are taken with a fancy/nice camera. I do not have one of those. I will be taking pictures with my phone. I am doing it for the fun of taking a picure a day and connecting with a community of picture takers. If you don't want to see pictures from my phone...well then don't look! I will try to make the pictures interesting and fun!

Let's see what fun things I can come up with! I hope to get some smiles/laughs.

My Pebble in my Pocket

In an earlier post, I mentioned my bracelet that has become my pebble.
The pebble in my pocket. 
I am never wearing pockets so this works for me
The visible and touchable reminder to stay in the present.
It really does make a difference.
There have been several occasions that I would react with anger,
That I have been able to act in calmness to find a solution.
What are you going to use as a reminder?
Where will you find your "pebble"

Cloth Diaper Wonderfulness!

This is a picture of my kit of cloth diapers.
It always makes me happy when I open it.
Usually when I open it, I am going to help another mom.
This a cool thing because that mom usually becomes my friend!
Cloth diapers have amazing powers!
Saving Environment.
Softness on babies bum.
Soft on your wallet.
Making friends.

Finding Peace

I think my main theme for this year is finding peace.
Everything I have been reading and learning hovers around that.
I just read a short book called, "A Pebble For Your Pocket" by Thich Nhat Hahn
This picture reminds me of that story.
Here's one way to find a little bit more peace in your day.
Find a small pebble or other object that can fit in your pocket.
(I am using my bracelet today as I have no pockets)
Use that object as a reminder.
Let it remind you to:
Be Present

How about you?  What will be your object of attention today?  How will you remind yourself to stay present.  Too often, we live in the past and future instead of the here and now.  A little focus and a small small can change your whole outlook!

I wish I could sleep like this.
Nuff Said
Note:  I know this isn't where her head should be and I kept fixing it...she kept putting it back Ha!

Before I got pregnant, I fell off the workout wagon.
While I was pregnant, I ate whatever and didn't walk until it was time to walk the baby out.
I used to love yoga and meditation.
I decided a couple days ago I needed to pick things up again.
I have read that it takes 21 days to make something a habit.
I am shooting for 21 days of yoga...
But where's my mat?
Can you find it?
Now that's a shame!
You can tell I haven't used it in a while.
I will bet it has been lonely.
This is my year for changes!

Date night ending

Tonight I got blessed with a date night. It was a lot of fun. We still had the baby but were able to have some adult conversation. This is the light on my night stand and will be the last thing I see tonight.

You are the Roots and the Branches

I am obsessed with trees.
Today I realized that as mothers we are the roots that nourish and the trunk that supports our families.
We must make sure to nourish ourselves before we can nourish our families.
As with trees, if the roots don't receive nourishment the whole tree suffers.
Let's take time out for ourselves.

The eyes of our Children

Ok so this is a combo of two pictures...but this is the creative idea I came up with today
This picture was done to help me remember that our my children are watching me.
When our children are watching us...what do they see?

Calming The Storm

I was trying to read and study yesterday.
I wasn't getting much accomplished because the baby was VERY fussy.
The Snickers and the picture were brought back to me from a trip to the store.
Very fitting for the type of day I was having!

Cloth Diaper Cuteness

I just love the cuteness of cloth diapers paired with some adorable leggings!
There is nothing better than knowing my little one has only the best closest to her skin!
A little blurry (she doesn't hold still) but ridiculously cute right?
I sell cloth diapers and blog about modern cloth diapers and caring for them. 
Feel free to contact me for more info on modern cloth diapers.

Day 5

I thought this was pretty! 
It reminded me that even when I am trying to be fluid and flexible,
Outside conditions can make me become rigid if I am not careful.
When I become rigid, my progress is halted

Day 4

Makeshift Sled:  Check
Frozen Mommy:  Check
Fingers doing weird things:  Check
Weird Grin:  Check
The kicker is:  She can't push me because I need to lay off the Snacks!

Day 3-This one I kind of cheated! See Below

I completely forgot a picture on 01/09/11 but I love this shot that was taken a little bit I am putting it here!  My budding Computer Geek.  The ETrade babies better watch out!

Day 2

Standing Tall at 4 Months Old!

Day 1-Actually starting 01/07/11 because I was taking pictures then!
