10 on 10

I'm always game for a new creative project especially if it involves taking pics. I have been known to go over board in the photography department (no shame in the over-share!).

Anyhow, y'all know about Fat Mum Slim's Photo A Day Challenge right? Well, her blog recently introduced me to this photo project called 10 on 10, started in 2008 by fellow blogger Rebekah Gough. It's similar to Photo a Day but for the less committed.

Here's how it works. On the 10th of every month (mark your calendars) you take a photo once every hour for 10 consecutive hours and then post the link to your pics on her blog or tag them on Instagram with #10on10.

Sounds fun right? I think I'm in the market for a new DSLR camera. The iphone takes great pics, but I want something a little better.  Anyway, I'm totally in for November 10th! Who's with me?

Until then I've left you with the pic above. L'il E's giggle warms my heart.



I recently read a post on fat mum slim that I thought was inspiring. I often read blogs and get the impression that the women/men behind them are perfect. They all do so many things, post several times a day and offer such great advice that I'm often left wondering how they do it all. So just in case any of you readers think I'm living a perfect life here's proof I don't.

  1. I never make our bed (I don't even make it when people come over).
  2. I'm addicted to chips and eat them every day.
  3. I never clean the lint trap in our dryer and it drives the Hubs crazy.
  4. I leave the hair that falls out when I wash my hair on the shower wall.
  5. I often pretend I'm listening, when I'm not.
  6. I can be stubborn and impossible to persuade.
  7. I  like red wine way too much.
  8. I own and wear too much grey clothing.
  9. I leave water glasses all over the house.
  10. I don't put my clothes away and sometimes I just throw them in the laundry so I don't have to fold them.

So there. What are your imperfections?
