A photo an hour... - The Dainty Squid

A photo an hour...

Saturday, July 16, 2011

It's been a while since I did a photo an hour for the whole day (here's the last time) It's something I'd really like to do more often, but I usually end up starting then time gets lost while I work and the project is ruined but Thursday I managed to remember each hour!

8am // finally getting caught up on taking photos of my 52 weeks of instax project!
9am // an early lunch. veggie dogs, and a cookie
10am // work, work, work. new triangle pouches and some limited edition screen printed stumps.
11am // cutting fabric for pencil pouches and watching reruns of SNL from the 1990's on netflix.
12pm // so happy with this little design! kind of obsessed with flaps, can't wait to show you this month's clutch of the month design. (it's not this, this is just a one of a kind pouch)
1pm // distracted by candles. I can't help but always stick my fingers in the wax, but yikes, gel candles get sooo much hotter.
2pm // ripping the seams out of a dress I "fixed" years ago. the stitching was beyond embarrassing, my sewing has improved tenfold since!
3pm // took some portraits of the usually shy Miss Squid. She's so beautiful. I'm very happy to have some more photos of her.
4pm // headed outside to watch my mom powerwash my back patio. (she'd been over all morning powerwashing the decks, sidewalk and patios around my house. i think she might be mildly obsessed!)
5pm // took some portraits of a handsome little boy! I'll show you them soon!
6pm // painted my toenails while my dad installed new light fixtures in our hallway. (my parents have been over a lot recently helping us spruce up the house for our house guests later this month. thanks mom and dad!)
7pm. // my parents left, kevin was putting some finish on our new cupboard doors to be and I threw my feet up on the table, relaxed and watched Son-in-law. loooooooove Pauly Shore!
xoxo!!

  2. Oh my, your little Squid is an exact replica of my little Zelda, right down to those yellow eyes and little puff of white on the chest!

    I'm impressed by how much craftiness you get done, I'm far too easily distracted.

  5. This is such a good idea. Although my dad would probably involve more procrastinating on blogs that I would like to admit.

  32. This is so fun!!! I've wanted to do this type of picture post for ages, but I too always forget an hour or two and stop for the day. >.<

    I busted out laughing at your mom power washing everything! Your pictures and details all sounded so calm and serene and than I just imagine your mom with one of those loud power washing machines and I giggle. I don't know why!!!

    And your nails are ADORABLE! Love that color combo!

  44. I love how you painted your toenails different colors, your turtle bench thing, and you kitty pictures, well of course and everything else! :) I have been meaning to do a post like this, but I'm not really exciting enough to show what I'm doing each hour, haha!

    ReplyDelete
  45. that turtle on your porch is too adorable! and super cute toesies!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Your toes are too adorable! They remind me of a korean movie called "I'm a cyborg, but that's ok" ... the main character's toe nails are just like yours and they light up when her battery's all charged up :D

    ReplyDelete
  47. Whoaaaa! That's exactly the way I did my finger nails last week (although I stenciled some stars on them, too, with tiny stencils made from washi tape).

    Looooving it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Awh, love this! Do you have a tutorial on the pencil pouches? :)
