Cee's Fun Foto Challenge: Lines

(Please click on photo to see larger image.)
























"I crossed all the lines and broke all the rules,
But baby I broke them all for you."



The entire time I was shooting these pictures and making this collage, I had one song running through my head, and it's one of my faves (see video below):

#fmsphotoaday0313-4

Here is Week 4 of #fmsphotoaday March 2013:


18. Shoes: cannot *wait* to ditch these; is it spring yet?



19. A sign: that Spring wants to arrive but Winter
does not want to leave (yes, those are emerging
tulips *and* snow in the background).



20: Clean: the only time I lift weights is when I remove
these purdy little dumbbells to clean the dust from
underneath them.



 21. Working: on drawing the Pigeon. #mowillems



22. About me: literally, *and* my new favorite show,
catching up from season one.



 23. What I do for fun: movie on big screen, popcorn,
candy, and oh, a pair of 3D glasses. #thecroods



24. Up: guess where we went today?
#germfest #handsanitizeme #chuckecheese




Here are the pictures for Week 1, Week 2, and Week 3.

#fmsphotoaday0313-3

Here is Week 3 of #fmsphotoaday March 2013:


 11. Important: move to win.



12. In the distance: Stars and Stripes dancing in the wind.



 13. Sound: this beauty produces ones I absolutely adore.


 
 14. Tasty: his birthday cupcakes for school friends.



15. Explore: she's seeking different ingredients to coat rice balls--
my little chef-in-the-making.  (These are pork sung and 
seaweed/sesame seeds flakes.)



16. 9 o'clock: late night cupcakin', and it's beginning to feel
a lot like a birthday party!



17. Green: heart-shaped cyclamen leaves. 




In case you missed it, here are the pictures for Week 1 and Week 2.

#fmsphotoaday0313-2

Here is week 2 of #fmsphotoaday March 2013:

4. Lucky: free child labor. 'Nuf said.



 5. Under: new orchid buds hiding beneath extravagant,
shielding flowers.



 6. Chair: swingin' my blues away!



 
7. Fear: has taught me to never get burned again by
scalding hot coffee.



 
8. Favorite: his favorite snack and pre-consumption
compulsion only a mama finds endearing.



9. Faceless self-portrait.  (I just found out that the phone's
volume buttons snap pics. Where've I been?)



 10. I want...: I don't get the addiction to claw machines, but
she succeeds on her first try after numerous attempts by Daddy.
Of course he claims to have "loosened" the pile for her.




In case you missed it, here are pics for Week 1.  I'll be back next Monday for Week 3 pics!

Shoes and Feet

The lovely duo, Michele (@Old Dog New Tits) and Mel (@According to Mags), hosts of #KetchupWithUs, reached out to me to link up this week.  Honored and flattered, I hereby present my response to Prompt #13:

In 57 words or less, whose shoes would you like to walk in for a day?




Shoes and Feet


As a wee kiddie,
A grown-up I longed to be.
They had money in the bank,
And gasoline in the tank.
They got to make the rules
While we had to go to schools.
But, alas, Life is a Mystery,
That happens in a scurry.
As for my current input?
The shoe is on the other foot!

Won't you have a go, too?  Please visit Michele and Mel to link up!

#fmsphotoaday0313-1

Back on the #fmsphotoaday Train.  I'm suffering from winter woes and really need a Creativity Pick-Me-Up.  It has been astonishing how few pictures I have taken lately, which also feeds into the what-am-I-going-to-write-about conundrum because I have no photo illustration to go along with it.  Sometimes Inspiration finds you unexpectedly, but I am actively going on an Inspiration Hunt.

And I'm gonna catch a big one.



Here is Fatmumslim's March #fmsphotoaday challenge.  I participate on Instagram, post some to Facebook, and will now also repost the pics here, weekly.  




The first three pics to begin the challenge are here:

1. L is for...  Do you see it?  I had good little helpers for this one!



2. I made this: family members bingo boards for preschoolers 
in my Chinese class.



3. Key: I locked their little mouths and threw away the key, 
aka "wishful thinking."



I'll be back next Monday with a week's worth of new pics!  I hope you have a great week!
