2012 Holiday Photo Scavenger Hunt done!

Back in December, I wrote about my holiday photo scavenger hunt.  This is the third year that my son and I have done this together.  They are super fun and force you to get a little creative.  You can see my original post here.

I have to admit this year I was starting to wonder if I was going to be able to finish it.  But, I put it on my to do list and got 'er done!  My son asked me what is "holiday" about a window.  I told him when I set out to take my photos I try to put something Christmas in the photo.  For example, I could have just taken a photo of the window but I was sure to stand so that I could see the tree.

Another photo project that I really like (but not sure if I can handle!) is the December Daily project by Ali Edwards.  I may try it this year, but that time of year is always so busy and I just don't know if I can commit to it.  We'll shall see!

Thanks for reading!

A month in photos: 2012 year in review

There is something about a project that requires your participation through the whole year that is so rewarding when you finish.  I haven't printed these yet.  Trying to decide between printing them at home and adding them to an album or having them printed in a book by shutterfly or blurb.  I still need to do a few things either way like add a details page for each month to note some of the juicy details and maybe a "best of" page for the end.  Here is the cover page!  So thankful for Rebecca from simple as that for sharing her collages and providing the inspiration for this project!

A month in photos: December 2012

December was busy, but I can honestly say I enjoyed this past holiday season more this year than I have in a long time.  Before the insanity set in, I stumbled on this blog post called dear mom during the holidays.  I wasn't searching for it, but it found me on pinterest.  ;-)  If you find yourself enjoying the holidays less, read it.

Anywho, sorry I got off topic!  December was great and went by super fast.  I am still working on my 2012 year in review and holiday photo scavenger hunt, but hope to have it done soon to share.  I am still debating on what my photography goals for this year will be.  I've been thinking about a few different ideas and just have to narrow it down and decide how to document 2013.  Enjoy and happy new year!
