Your Monday Photo Shoot: Things You Made

"Creativity can be described as letting go of certainties."

-Gail Sheehy

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Take a picture of something you've made. Pottery, cookies, a drawing or painting, a poem or a pipe cleaner stick man - it's all good, it just has to have been made by you. Show off your creativity.

-John Scalzi (By The Way)

Tee Hee. This is an excellent choice for a Monday Photo Shoot Assignment, because as it just so happens, our blogfather, John Scalzi, has picked a subject that is eerily similar to our current Round Robin Photo Challenge theme, "The Creative Side Of You," which was chosen by our good friend, and fellow Robin, Pat (DesLily). LOL. Like my good friend Steven said, "great minds think alike," and he is so right! So, now we will have a very unique chance to share our creative side twice, and who knows, we might discover we are move creative then we thought we were!

Above you see a country hat, that I decorated myself. A few years back I did a lot of country type craft projects. Twig Wreaths, Bird Houses, Hats, Flower Arrangements, and so on. I was working in a flower shop at the time, and I picked up a lot of creative ideas for decorating. I had been planning on opening a small home based business, and then...well...life happened. :) So, I embarked on yet another of life's "plan B's." No worries, I still enjoy doing this type of craft, but the last few years the only country type crafts I have made for my home have been...Ooooooops...can't tell ya just yet, you will have to tune into my blog on Wednesday, November 1st, to see what I will be posting for the Round Robin Photo Challenge! Tee Hee.

If you would like to join us for the challenge, just pay a visit to the official Round Robin Blog to learn all the details. We always enjoy having new players, and it is a great way to meet new friends and have new folks visit your blog or journal. All are welcome to join in, no matter where you post your entries. :)

See, you're creative in all kinds of ways I would never even attempt! And vice versa, I suppose. Hooray for us! ;) (All of us, that is!) Even if J.S. did accidentally hirn in on Pat's R gig!

seeing the ribbon hanging from the hat made me think a price tag should be hanging from it and hearing you spout out a big ol' "howdeeeeeee!"
