Twelve Photos - January

Today is Dozen Day in the BPC Twelve workshop and we received a handout with 12 photo-taking opportunities and 12 page-making ideas. We will receive a similar handout each month through 2012, and I've decided to try to take 12 photos based on the prompts each month on the 12th and post them here for your enjoyment (or amusement).

1. What You're Wearing - simple enough, an easy photo in the mirror look at me today.


2. Your Cell Phone - the same phone I've had for the past 3 1/2 years; I think it's time to upgrade, don't you?


3. Three Things Together  - three new books I purchased for storytelling and scrapbooking inspiration.


4. Something Blue - this DVD set is one of my Christmas gifts from Robbie. We've been enjoying an episode each evening this week.

5. A Bedroom (before you pick it up) - luckily I'd already thrown the quilt over the bed in a haphazard fashion before reading this prompt so it doesn't look too bad!


6. A snack - just a little snack today as I'm trying to eat less.


7. The View Out A Window - looking out to our very barren raised garden bed.


8. Looking Down - I looked down and there were my feet, just like always. :>)


9. A Smile - Robbie's collectible toy room makes it easy to find something for almost any prompt.


10. Weather - a beautiful sunshiny but very cold day here today.


11. Homemade - the little square quilted "rug" on the table was made especially for me by Pun'kin, all by herself. It was my Christmas gift this year, and I am so thrilled that she shared the first thing she completed by herself with me! Isn't it beautiful?


12. Shoes - looking down a little later in the morning, I found my shoes!


I've seen other prompts/inspiration/ideas for taking 12 photos on the 12th of each month this year - are any of you participating in those challenges? Have you taken your 12 photos today?

Thanks for sharing. I'm using the prompts from Ella Publishing but will also use Stacy's prompts to take mre photos. They just arrive too late to do on the 12th. I loved Bewitched! The yelloe roses look fab on that beautiful little quilted piece.

Love your photos from today! I definitely got some ideas! I didn't snap 12 photos today, but I did get a few.....and that is better than zero! I am looking forward to digging into the 12 classroom later tonight. :)

Great post Melissa! I especially love the cell phone. You wouldn't want to see MY bedroom, even AFTER I made the bed. LOL And ya gotta LOVE Bewitched! I wish I could wiggle my nose right now and make some things happen. LOL

Nathalie said...

I didn't know BPC was also doing this! I just did the same thing but took random photos throughout my day - the prompts are really helpful I bet! Thanks for sharing your everyday moments with us :)

Oh, I'd no idea you could get Bewitched on DVD! I've loved watching this in my childhood. :) Off to Google! That is a very pretty patchwork piece - such lovely fresh colours.

Great idea Melissa and such funny glimpses into your day!
I loved Bewitched as a child - what a lovely, long lasting gift!

Sian said...

Great pictures - I love a glimpse into your daily life. And those days? I like the look of all three!

Heather said...

You are very patient with the dvd set! I would be watching 2 or 3 a night :) xx

I'm doing 12 on the Twelfth as well. I have the Ella Publishing prompts, but since I'm at my daughter's I didn't worry about the prompts so much. I have the photos in a folder, but it will be another day or two before they see a blog post! I'm curious about the book on Color. . . The other two I'm familiar with; love Annie Dillard.

Kidda neat, seeing a peek into a "day in your life". I'm jumping on this idea for myself. Thanks for sharing!

Great list and wonderful photos! I'm doing Ella Publishing's Take Twelve. These 12 projects are just all over the place, it seems!

Great job on taking photos of the prompts. I love the pooh bear smile photo. My oldest still loves his pooh bear tremendously, so he always brings a smile to my face.

I'm liking how Take Twelve is making me take photos of things I normally neglect to document. This should be a fun year for us!
