August Break

One of the blogs I follow Awkward and Beautiful is hosted by none other than the wonderful and talented Natty Malik. I also follow Natty on Twitter and happen to see a mention of her doing something "simple" for August from a blog SHE follows. I asked more about it and she sent me the link! (Thank you Natty!)

I did In the Sun with Natty last year on my Art of Trisha Trixie blog and had a blast. If I were not so super busy right now I would do her Art Journals too! Funny that I mentioned being "too busy" because August Break  by Susannah Conway is completely opposite!

For this exercise we are to "take it easy" and "look at life through a lens". Now I was thinking...what about my sister who doesn't have a camera or a camera phone? Well, why not look at life through pictures!? I mean I am sure not everyone walks around this world with a camera phone or an available camera, but I don't see why those of you who don't own those, couldn't showcase a picture that represents how your feel, right? I mean why not?!! There is the internet, Pinterest, Deviant Art, and so much more! As long as you give credit where credit is due of course, now!! (Make sure you link back where the picture is from or let us know they are not yours) I don't know I am not Susannah Conway who is running this, but I think the concept is the same (if you ask me, which no one did but I am saying so anyway!)

I have been wanting to do something like this for 365 Days but never got to it. Maybe this will help me get in gear and once I have done it for 30 days I can continue on.

So I grabbed the badge color that spoke to me (pink of course) and I will be adding it to my page widgets tonight. Then starting August 1st I will take pictures to share with the world. That is it. No words. Just images

How it works: you simply share one photo (or more!) each day on your blog – Monday to Friday, or every day. Or whenever you feel moved to share. No pressure – just looking at August through your camera lens as a way to be more present this summer. And to have a little break from the pressures and expectations of regular blogging.
Happy August Break! Anyone else joining in that follows me comment and let me know! I want to know who else is going to play along!!

  1. Thanks Trisha Trixie! I love this idea and am very excited to use it. I don't have the equipment to post personal pictures so using items from the internet, giving credit where credit is due, works great for me! Great way to show the world who & what we are and how we feel. :D
