Although my days have gotten a little busier, I have managed to sneak in a little time for photography. I especially didn't want to get behind in the Be Still exercises. Finding time to put together a post has been another matter. Finally the opportunity came, a rainy afternoon.
The exercise included
glass, light, airy, and shades of white
I have a small collection of glass jars and bottles that I choose three from. Then, I added a few buttons tumbling out of the jar and a piece of lace in the background. Very simple, but that was the look I wanted.
Our exercise was to make something that we could use in the next week's exercise. I looked through my Pinterest boards wanting something springy. Since my time is limited I was also looking for something easy and fast. I decided to create a couple of simple little paper birds, gathered my supplies, and began to create.
This week's assignment was to photograph what we made three different ways.
First, I brought in some blossoms from my flowering plum tree. They are such pretty, delicate blossoms.
I embellished a small nest with blossoms and stuck a couple of limbs in a bottle.
Next, I covered three books with scrapbook paper, added one of my grandmother's doilies for the background, and picked a bunch of daffodils "for you."
And, lastly, just for fun I took these little sweeties outside. They are not very stable on those paperclip feet, so the breeze kept blowing them over. It became a race between me and the wind.
I finally got one I was fairly happy with.
Then we just wandered around the yard together
checking out the spring colors.
I loved the "make something" exercise and because I love these little birds, it was easy to photography them. I definitely needed the time outside enjoying the fresh air and the beauty of spring.
A quick update on my mom. She is now in a rehabilitation center. I'm not sure she'll regain much use of her right leg and arm. There is a little movement, but not much. Her speech has improved each day and we are so grateful for that. Things can still change, nerves can heal and that's what we're praying for. I want to thank each of you for you thoughts and prayers. You're each very special to me!
