day 6: dinner & day 7: buttons

I realized I had forgotten about photo a day challenge after the fact so this was my interpretation of dinner - our dirty dinner dishes. Blech!

My stylist - Leesa Berry - just opened her own hair cutting shop in Parkdale and this is her button, so naturally I snapped a pic of it for my day 7 photo. She's located behind Capital and is honestly the best hair cutter I know of in the city. I've been following her around for the last few years from Steinberg to Cabinet and even when she was cutting out of her apartment I followed her there. Give her a holler if you need a cut.

Happy snapping!

days 4 & 5

I'm still going with this photo a day challenge - it's so fun.

Day 4's inspirational word was "a stranger" so I snapped a pic of one of the bakers at Bunner's Gluten Free Vegan Bakery. Naturally we had to serve a gluten free cake at L'il E's birthday party (more on this later) on Saturday so I called up Bunner's to make a cake for the family affair (I don't trust my GF baking skills just yet).

Day 5's inspirational work was "10 am". Too bad I wasn't doing something a little more exciting. Here's the self-checkout station at Metro. Don't you just hate those things. "Please. Put the item in the bag."

Happy snapping!

day 3: hands

It's day three of the photo a day challenge and the inspirational word today was HANDS. Here's what mine were doing today - finishing L'il E's birthday quilt!

Happy snapping!

Day 2: words

Today's challenge was "words" so I decided to snap L'il E's fave book - The Gruffalo. I know every word off by heart, in fact, I can recite the book without even looking at it. Perfect for those times when I need to read him a story but don't have any books.

The Gruffalo's Child is another family favourite. If you're looking for gifts for a kiddo in your life, these books are the bomb!

photo a day challenge

I wanted to jump in on this last month, but I got busy and now all of a sudden it's February, so here we are and I'm starting now. I'm talking about the photo a day challenge and it's going to be so fun. I'll post my pics here, on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter so stay tuned and join in on the fun.

Can you tell I'm on mat leave? Here's my view today...

Happy snappin'!
