Project 30

Project 365 has become quite a popular challenge over the past few years. I've followed various friends and artists as they eagerly set out on their attempt to take a  photo every day for a year and I've been there as the stragglers are still clicking away at the end of the year.
Me? Tempted? No.
I'm happy to do a photo a day for a month - Project 30, if you will.
I've done that for 3 years now. I usually do September or November - the 30-day months.
Last year I did November and they have been sitting in a file waiting for my attention.

So without further ado... (click on the collage to see a bigger version.)

So, what can you see in my 30 photos?
A pretty weed
Moses and Mamachi
Mal with a macho towel arrangement
The kids on Caitlin's birthday
My paints arranged in rainbow order ready to be catalogued (Gosh, that was fun!!!)
A collection of garlic stalks!!!
The reproductive part of an hibiscus flower
A sketch of Soph at piano lessons
Kelly's hand with her new nailpolish
Graffiti at Kingsgrove Station
The contents of a fun parcel from Glenda
Hudson in his favourite get-up - soccer pajamas, soccer socks, soccer shoes - has been known to wear in public :)
Knotted Slinky -  Caitlin still has hers in perfect condition. Guess who doesn't.
My ironed ironing pile - that was in November 2010. Since then I have decided not to iron - a decision of epic proportions! ( Just to clarify - I've decided not to iron and to put the t-shirts straight into the kids' draws cos they look the same when they come out anyway.)
A background made to be chopped up to make decorations etc. I'll show you some cards that I made some time.
Part of a page I did in Dina Wakley's AJ103 - LOVE her classes.
The tip of my new found Posca Paint Pen - Australia's substitute for Shaprie Paint Markers and a fine substitue they are too - they're awesome!
Young Nick, awkwardly posed, on Waffle Day (our new Sunday tradition - still going strong)
The cutest chookie ever - can't remember her name - so calm and placid.
Selfie - Me and Kelly
Hudson being a bunny at the P.O.P. (People of Praise - homeschool drama, dance and art) performance.
Happy Little Vegemites with rosy cheeks
Collection of found things while packing my art room
Jacaranda skies - words cannot describe the sheer delight I have in the pretty purple carpet made with jacaranda flowers and now we have one in the back yard. I can't wait 'til November 2011.
Drop sheet for my inking projects
Caitlin - first swim of the season
Soph sitting by the pool
A photo of a reflection of our van in a window in... you guessed it... Earlwood! I take photos of the reflection of our van. No, seriously. I do!
Inky fingers
The kids LOVED P.O.P.

That'll do ya.

Hi Heather,
That is an art journal page. It seems that my blog took a dip and pretty much skipped AJ103. I'll see if I can rustle up a blog post.

Yes, I think the most I ever did was project 56 or something like that :). I never last more than a month or two. This year I didn't even bother! I'm sure that you will love having these in years to come.
