Enjoying the Blythe-a-Day Groups!

Off and on since last year I have been participating in the flickr "Blythe-a-Day" groups. These groups are hosted by a different person each month, and contain a list of themes for each day of the month. I have found some girls to be easier to photograph everyday than others; and some lists easier to stick to than others.

This year I started off with Hana for the Blythe a Day January group.

January 9 - Fancy Footwear           January 11 - Cinderella
I began with good intentions (and some decent photos) and then punked out at the end. I had 24/31 photos for January.
For February I decided that Fawn was my girl. I received Fawn on February 19th of 2010; a day that I worked and was away from my then-four-month-old daughter. I saw poor Fawn's box, and ignored it for Riley, then finally opened it and went, "Hm. Okay." It wasn't until later, when Riley was sleeping and my best friend came over and named her, that Fawn came to life for me. I have loved her ever since!
February 6 - Reading                 February 10 - Braids
Since February 19th is Fawn's birthday, I actually got her a present! I was browsing etsy and saw this HiBlythe deer dress. I have wanted a HiBlythe dress, and kept putting it off because I wasn't sure which pattern. Well, this was the last one, so I snagged it for Fawn.
It's a shame that February is such a short month; I will definitely have to showcase more of Fawn this year!

The Obligatory 2013 Post

I didn't feel much like posting a blog entry about resolutions, or even some of the cute 13 wishes for 2013 (I started to, got annoyed with flickr toys, and then decided to hell with it)
What I will say is this: 2013 marks the start of my first 365 photo challenge in over two years. I am excited to say that I will be photographing Pocket everyday of this year! 1/365 - Pocket Pics for 2013! I'm continuing the 'Blythe a Day' monthly projects with Hana as the January girl. Hana is a custom by me who is rarely photographed. I'm hoping to expand on her personality and wardrobe through doing this challenge.
  Blythe a Day 1/1: Celebrate!
Annnd, maybe I'm biting off more than I can chew, but so far I am enjoying it: I have rejoined the Blythe Physical Challenge group, I plan to do a 52 Weeks of Blythe project, and also am keeping up with Wubba Wednesdays and BA Fridays with girls that AREN'T getting camera time in other projects that week. Whew! As for 13 wishes...I'm trying to focus on a few very select things that I want to have under our roof by the close of 2013. Included are those pesky GNC cons, the Takara Busy Bee Scooter, Doll-sized video games, and maybe a Goldie. :) Wants

Happy New Year, everyone!
