A couple of weeks back I shared the first half of my ‘month in the life’ photo challenge that I was completing with prompts from the lovely Jess from Create and Thrive on Instagram. I am proud (and quite amazed) to say that I posted every single day for the month of August! Without further ado, here is the remainder of my photos!
17. Photography. I try to take shots in good natural light by often miss the timing, so I have two photo cubes to help me out instead.
18. Customer. This gorgeous little person loves the teething chew on her bib that I made and was happy to model for me earlier in the year.
19. Tools. A few of my favourites!
20. Finished. This order was made months ago, but not required until next month, so finally making it brought a great sense of accomplishment!
21. Morning. This is my normal morning – laundry, bed hair, an ancient pink dressing gown, and trying to get everyone dressed and out the door on time!
22. Goal. This is my vision board for my business – where I want to take it and how I want it to feel.
23. Why? Because it completes me.
24. Neighbourhood. (I was sick at this time so only ventured as far as my front verandah for the photo.) We live on the side of a mountain and across the road from a bush reserve – we often have kangaroos come down the path next to the yellow house.
25. Work clothes. Whether it is jeans and a tunic, or a dress, my ancient slippers are my work ‘shoes’ at home. (And yes – I was still sick!)
26. In situ. One of my bags being worn on a bike riding adventure in the bush by my middle chick. This is the bag that you can make using my tutorial on this site.
27. Learning. The business side of running a business!
28. In the World. The bag I made while preparing this pattern for the “Love Sewing Australia” magazine arrived home in the mail on this day. My creativity out in the world!
29. How. This is how I am rewarding myself at the end of a long and stressful week. Creme brulee tea and locally made chocolate.
30. Treasured. This plate was made for my great-grandmother for her birthday in 1927. During the war many of the family possessions were lost, but this is one that my grandmother still had, until she sent it to me when I was admitted to court as a lawyer. It is my most treasured possession (because I don’t possess my kids!!)
31. Support. I am supported by my friends, family, colleagues, fellow bloggers,fellow craftspeople, Facebookers and instagrammers. Thank you all!
I enjoyed sharing a bit of ‘me’ and my business through this process – I hope to do it again next year! If you would like to follow me on Instagram you can find me @alittlebirdmademe.
