I decided to go with the bubble gum machine for the Coin Slot Challenge, with some valuable input from my husband, I entered my yellow and blue machine. Voting started today, I’m not doing too well. I’m at 4.5 out of 10, bummer. There has been one comment that I appreciate, the commenter said the picture would have been better if the actual coin slot was in focus. True, very true. I was so focused on the framing of my picture, I didn’t consider the focal point…. Well, it is atleast helping my photography.
Next weeks dp challenge is babies and toddlers. That shouldn’t be too hard since I have a toddler. I just think it will be a difficult competition since lots of people take photos of children. If I learn something, its worth it.
On a different topic, a mouse fell out of our fireplace this evening. We don’t have a real fireplace, its one of those gas log things that just has a flame. I have no idea where it came from nor where it went to. It hopped back up into the fireplace and ran somewhere. I knew there was one in the garage, I saw his/her remanants around, but never found a nest… I did clean up and rearrange its bathroom, so maybe that made it relocate to the fireplace. I guess that happens… To the hardware store for traps tomorrow. It should have stayed in the garage…
I also created my fall scene at my workplace, well 80%. I still need to get big pumpkins. I managed to put 2 large mums, 3 small mums, 2 small pumpkins and 4 bails of straw in a Chevy HHR, not without a huge mess, but I did it none the less. I also already had some scarecrows to add to the festivities. Tomorrows project is to make a bunting to hang over the decor. It really is kind of random, we don’t do anything like this except for halloween/thanksgiving time and then for christmas, a tree. No other holidays… I will take a picture when it is all together, maybe with my toddler in it… you know, for the challenge =]
