This week it is not about the clay but rather an app that is near and dear to my heart. If you don’t want to see way to much of family and my day-to-day life then stop reading now. Another thing I am surprised about is how the topic turned to art and being creative if I just take the moment to look.
If you follow the blog you know my favorite app is Project 365. The tagline is take a picture a day and see your life in a whole new way. Here are a few of my pictures of the day in the last 11 months and the stories of course to go with them.
I have to start with the first one. New Phone I am in bed playing with it and the app, I tried to take a picture and upload it to make sure I could indeed use such app, when the phone fell out of my hands while taking the picture. I decided that if I could upload successfully and use the app daily it could only go uphill from there. Boy did it ever .
Hubby made shakes one day and they were truly a work of art. Picture of the day and new picture when hubby calls me. Several times a week when he calls I of course answer by saying before anything “hey baby whats shaken?” All because of Project 365 (sniff sniff).
My son using my clean work table to make a duct tape wallet. Turned out pretty good but he wouldn’t let me take one of it completed.
Hubby on his birthday. Doesn’t he look like he wants to start trouble? A kid at heart always.
My first Clay Swap Mailing last year.
This is the first time family members other than hubby and son referred to the app. As family from Vermont was leaving the driveway I was snapping a photo and one of them rolled down the window and asked if that was my picture of the day? They loved looking at my pictures of the day that I had taken so far for the year.
I knew it would not take long for my son to refuse to allow him to be my picture of the day.
Sometime in the last 10 days my Project 365 app stopped working. I was having withdrawal I needed to take my picture of the day. I had taken one and seen my life in a whole new way. I gave it a couple of days…still taking my picture and knowing that one day soon I would just be able to go back and fill it in (one of the great features of the app by the way). I mean everyone forgets every once in a while. I gave it as long as I could then e-mailed the support e-mail provided.
I got a really nice response from the company they said that the updates were complete and it would again be available in the app store. There was more in the e-mail I will give you my impression of it.
I felt like the individual was an artist. I sit with my clay and beads and findings, he sits with his computer creating a work of art for the world to either embrace or not. How many times have you just been so scared, tired, wanted to give up a project because it just was not turning out right or not being received in the way you thought it should.How many hours have you spent at your work table and you did not like what came off of it no matter how hard you tried?
How many times in life do we hit that wall?
More important how do we get past the wall?
Now this is so frustrating because I have the perfect picture to illustrate getting over the wall and being successful but I can not access the app to find out who these 5 Superbowl Rings belong to I forgot. You see the app is available but they are working through bugs with the program that arose in January. I am waiting for the technical issues to be resolved. I know they will because of the dedication the team has.
Another success was the night when I won first place in the TDBank bowling night.
These puzzle pieces were a great success. It took a few trips to Home Depot to get the right metal for the shaping.
This is one that was not so successful. Hubby tried to make a water thing instead of buying the one seen on tv (and in Home Depot).
This one is more crazy than successful. It is Roseanne at the end of the year party for her son. She said at one point there had to have been more than 50 of them there. I wanted to get all the kids in the yard but we decided it may be better just her since they are teenagers.
Use it while you are out and about in your daily life. You will be able to look back at the memories. This one is of the Taco Bell employee at the drive in window. I took a picture of her……explaining to son why not it will make her happy and smile why not come on she will like it. We got home, no nachos in the bag. Son of course said that was what I got for taking her picture. He still reminds me about that one every once in a while. Project 365!
How often in life do you get to see a Scooby Doo Van?
Beer and Cigarettes anyone?
While hubby was out-of-town and could not see the flowers blooming I took pictures of the day for him to see all of his hard work.
Almost every picture taken has been taken with the intention of using it for the picture of the day. I am sure some of them would not have been taken if Project 365 did not exist. I highly recommend you get this app if you have an I Phone.
I can not wait for them to get the bugs fixed so I can have access to this wonderful app again. I know they will do it and getting a lot of queries because of its popularity while working through the issues.
There are so many more pictures.
Lady Ga Ga.
Sons first time eating Sushi.
Playing Farmville with Roseanne and Wendy we laughed so hard we literally almost wet our pants. I am proud to say I have quit!
The time I learned my son likes the inside of french bread and I like the outside.
All the pictures of the day from Lebanon especially the lower grotto and the eggs in the light.
U Save Rent A Car.
Dallas Cowboys tickets.
I have some wonderful memories of my Son. His first day of High School.
Sons first time driving my car in the parking lot.
The time he told me he does not like Kebabs which is all we eat when we bbq.
His memorable grocery list.
The time when he found a 5 lb bag of Tater Tots and insisted that was the picture of the day.
I could go on and on and but I think the best way for you to know how great of an app it is will be to let you try it for yourself. There will be a drawing and 5 individuals who would like the app will be able to get the Pro Version as a gift from me. Let it change 5 lives if it can not be a part of mine until the bugs are fixed. I am taking my picture still and will go back and fill in when they are fixed.
