A little behind but doing my job.

Day 15 & 16 in 30 Day Journal  I can hardly believe that this is half way through - I though I would not do this for more then 3-5 days, but you know what?   I really enjoying this, it´s so good to know that one is able to take a pen and paper and use it (not the best artist but....good enough for me).

This is not so bad, but it´s kind of hard to bend the knee, so I´m acting like a princess and taking things slow:)

Day 13 SMILE in Boot Camp. I love that word SMILE and a lot of things make me smile and I feel so good about that. What I want to share with you is my photo wall, even though some of the people on these photos are dead, I smile when I look at them, it reminds me of the day´s when they were with us and we had so much love and happiness, of course there were sadness too but I want to remember the SMILE´s and I often stand in front of this wall and think back and SMILE
I can hardly believe that this BOOT CAMP journey is over this has been so much fun and I am going to join in on Sunday´s - looking forward to doing that. I have been thinking HOW CAN I CONTINUE THIS AWSOME WORK - and this morning when I was reading today's assignment I was so happy to see that we can meet on Sunday mornings and continue our journey together. Thank you so much Maegan for doing this and for wanting to keep us with you :)

Day 12  SMOOTH in Boot Camp. That´s something to think about and dreams well I have and always have had so many dreams and I do not think it´s so difficult to think about them - even though some of them will never come true :) But I remember on dream when I was a little girl - I really wanted to have a little duck-ling they were so cute and soft and pretty - and you know that one dream came true for a day then he died - this little cute duck-ling made me think of that and how SMOOTH they can swim as tiny as they are. I had to put two photos this time. Don´t you find them the cutest :)

Day 11 in Boot Camp : HUSH
I immediately though of my little cute Chihuahua -Nikita - she has been barking SO MUCH and I´m always "HUSH-ing" her, so this was the only thing that I wanted to photo for today. As you can see I played with this one in Photo Shop.

Day 10 in Boot Camp  FULL BODIED - do I have to eat my belly full to take a photo :) no joke. Will I photo the big teddy in my bedroom...........he really is full but if these two would be alive I could take them and cook them and have a feast for you and then I could photo a full bodied person. I think I´ll just use my handmade geese's for this time.

Day 9  DRIZZLE in Boot Camp. Well this is kind of easy now because we have rain and my window has some drizzle on it. So here is my take for the day - a drizzled window

Day 8: ORNAMENT that´s the word to work with today in Boot Camp. My newest ornament and a very very special one to me is my little glass angle, that was given to my last week by a special friend that I care about very much, she is a great woman and a terrific person that I am lucky to have as a friend. I did play with my photo a little in Photoshop.

Day 7:  FLY the word for to day in Boot Camp. That can be a fly on my I do not have a fly on my wall this time. My DD is not flying to day so it´s not going to be what will I do......... Since I´ve not been home today I have to have this one kind of easy so I´m going to use  photo I took the other day of my DS throwing one of his birthday gifts up in the air. I wanted it to be different from what I have been doing so I turned it into black and white, and cut it to a little piece. So not very heavy work today, but that can not be done all day´s, can it?

Day 6: FLUID - at Boot Camp. My fist though was OIL but where would I see oil being spilled down............not a chance - so what to do, water - no that is not the right though, then I remembered that my hubby had change the oil of the car and put the oil that was on the car in a container and that was still here somewhere. Oh yes of course I found it and put it outside. So in the white circle I drew on my photo (in Photoshop) there´s the container that has the old oil.
We were to do something we are not used to do, so I did not take a close up of the oil-container.

Day 5 - already wow this goes by fast - GROW that is our assignment for today in Boot Camp.  One thing I though of was the weed in my small garden that I did not want to have growing there, so why not photo that plant and be done with this :) In Icelandic it´s called NJÓLI but sorry I have no idea what the English name is (or in any other language for that matter)

Day 3 in Boot Camp: HEAVY METAL, OK that could be a CD with heavy metal music..... can I find on of those in my home....................NO (thank Good) so what is there to do?  Again I have to think - think - think, could that be what I´ll have to do for the rest of this Boot Camp :) well that would not be so bad. Get ideas, get creative - cool, but I still do not think of myself as an ARTIST no way I´m just a mom, wife, and so on and I love to sew, scrapbook, take photos, play with my PhotoShop, knit, design scrapbook-kit´s, design some greeting-cards, some patterns for quilting..................ARTIST I do not think so, just kind of cleaver :)
But in this HEAVY METAL photo is on HEAVY METAL I do not know what it´s called but when I found it a few years ago (I was biking) I just had to bring it home, so I stopped and "picked" this heavy thing up and put it in the iron-basket on my bike.............ohhhhhhh boy it was so HAVEY that me and my bike could hardly handle it LOL but home it got, and I always thought that I would put some summer flowers in it, but like you can see it has no flowers YET :)

For day 3 in Boot Camp: MULTILAYERED - wow what can I do, that would be easy in scrapbooking :) but that is not what I´m working with this time. Come on Tora you are supposed to be working with your camera so what are you going to do?
OK I think LOL I know what I´m going to do. Go to my sewing-room and look at all my fabrics, they are layered in my shelf so maybe that will work?


Picnic is the job of day 2 in Boot Camp.  I have to do some kind of photographic for this one, what is that to be, lets go look for something in my kitchen and see if I can come up with picnic....related -something!

OK think I found a cool thing I can put in the grass and use. It´s my parents picnic-box. I so remember when this was is use when I was a kid, I even used it when me and my DH went traveling with our kid´s when they were young. This really reminds me of picnic, well not my little Chihuahua´s (I did not have them at that time), but they did look cute and curies around my box:)


OK here is the first assignment for the Boot Camp.  I know that on this photo it looks white, but in reality it´s IVORY.
I decided on going with my camera, it was a choice between my sewing machine and the camera, and I know I will not sit down everyday and sew something even though I do a lot of that. So the Camera won. I have a Canon PowerShot SD790 IS
