Project 365: Video Edition - The Magic Bullet

Making a shake with the Magic Bullet. It's the only Made-for-TV appliance that I would say I'd actually have a hard time living without. It really is what they say it is.

Project 365: 86/365 - Guess What

Project 365: Photo Edition - Slumbering


Yes, he does actually sleep every once in awhile. That's why he's so full of energy all the rest of the live long day.

Project 365: Video Edition - Guess the Movie

This is the second time I've seen this movie in the theaters. Yes, it was worth forking out another $8.50.

Project 365: 85/365 - All Kinds of Artsy

Project 365: Photo Edition - Sculpture


This was one of the submissions for an art fair for which I was a judge. It was my judge's pick--absolute favorite of all the sculptures. Of course, now I can't remember the title.

Project 365: Video Edition - Contact Juggling

My friend Annie practicing contact juggling. We'll just call her the Wife of Jareth.

Comment if you know the movie reference there--and if you do, you are one of the AWESOME.

Project 365: 84/365 - Mysterious Words

Project 365: Photo Edition - Skrow


My friend Annie and I were trying to come up with a name for the nasty piles of dirty snow that is leftover after all the other snow has melted. I think "skrow" should be the name--black as a crow, not quite snow.

Project 365: Video Edition - Elixir

The music really makes this one work as an ominous, magical scene.

POST A COMMENT with a description of what this could be in a fictional setting.

I dug this path for when my husband got home after midnight because the accumulation was INSANE. It was snowed-over again by time he arrived.

Project 365: 78/365 - All Cut Up

Project 365: Photo Edition - Broken Beauty

100319--Broken Beauty

Our Women's Ministry director gave this Christmas ornament to me the Christmas after I first came on staff at the church. I used to have it hanging on my rearview mirror. It lasted a couple years at least. Then I brought it inside when we got a new car. For another few years, it survived the tree and being displayed on the mantel where the cats could get to it.

This day, my boy got a hold of the ornament and mistook it for a ball that could be bounced against the stone hearth. Yikes. Ah well. It's just stuff. (He DID feel very remorseful.)

Project 365: Video Edition - How To Seed a Cucumber

Another practical kitchen tip! This Project 365 thing is making a lot of useful videos as well as pointless ones. Guess there should always be a balance, eh? XD

Project 365: Photo Edition - 2010 Census

We did our part by filling out the 10-minute survey. We did not include Mr. & Mrs. Potato head or their little spud spawn.

There's a certain someone that ALWAYS comes to mind when I hear Skillet come on the radio.

Project 365: 67/365 - Pineapple Slaying

Project 365: Photo Edition - Tropical Slaying

Okay, maybe "slaying" is a bit of a stretch when it comes to a pineapple. But a knife WAS involved.

Once you get this easy-slice method down, nothing will stop you from enjoying a delicious prickly pineapple.

Project 365: 66/365 - How 'bout them apples?

Project 365: Photo Edition - Apple Curl

Making homemade applesauce requires peeling a lot of apples. The sauce was excellent, the peeling was tedious. Might have to borrow Beth's apple peeler next time...

Project 365: Video Edition - Sunday Morning Snippet

Our teaching pastor is an incredible speaker with a quick (and humble) wit. I look forward to hearing him speak every Sunday he's at the pulpit. (And I'm not just saying that because I'm tagging him on Facebook.)

Project 365: 65/365 - A Night at the Movies

Project 365: Photo Edition - Extreme Digital Cinema

I took this the day after opening night for Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland at a brand new high-tech 3D theater. I used the landscape feature on my camera which takes three pictures that you line up as you take them. An observant person will notice that I goofed a little bit. :oP (Click the image for a larger version.)

Project 365: Video Edition - Slice of Credits

If you see Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, be sure to sit through the end credits. CGI fans will love it.

NOTE: I obviously do not own the rights to this stuff. But I assure you that this movie is worth paying money for--so go do it!
