Oh my gosh, I did not even realize it was the end of April. It must have just flown by me, I know I’ve been busy unpacking and moving but my house has been completely unpacked for weeks! I hope your April was good. Mine has been a mixed bag but the last two weeks have just been really wonderful. Montreal is full on summer mode and seems to have skipped spring completely. I’ve been walking every weekend with Victor around our new neighborhood and that’s really been a great change. I’ve also started doing Yoga, I think I may need to do some more working out before I can handle doing a Yoga class since I’m a little ( a lot) out of shape but it is great to start something new. You may have noticed that this month there was no reviews for Vintage Tuesday or Lomography Wednesday, don’t worry those were just put on hold due to being so busy with the move and will be back in May. So far I do not have many plans for May, just painting the house and taking lots of photos :)
a few of my favourite posts from April:
Pick of the Week: KarolinFelix
Saturday Review: Camilla Rose Garcia
Picture of the Week: Artist for Animals
DIY: Paper Cranes
I am making a few changes to the blog for May.
- I love fashion and love dressing a little crazy so I wanted to add a What I Wore post to my blog, and why not alternate with Self-Portrait Sunday? I don’t know if this will become a staple so I’m declaring May and June as a trial period, let me know if you like these types of posts, I’d love the feedback. I’m a bit nervous as my self-portraits are all from photo shoots I’ve done or just trying to document my hair color so to me this is completely different. If I look nervous in the first few, you’ll know why. :)
- It turns out my favourite post to make Vingtage Tuesday, is much harder to take enough photos for a weekly post with developing film and finding time in the day to convert some of these beauties to work with modern film and clean them. I’ll see how May goes but I am thinking of switching it to be bi-weekly, so if you notice the frequency go down that’s why.
- There will no longer be a Picture of the Week. When I first created it was to encourage myself to do more photography on a weekly basis. But in March I started my 365 project on Tumblr and it seems a little repetitive. I will still be doing my monthly updates of the 365 project on my blog once a month on Fridays however check out my Tumblr in between for daily pictures.
I know so many changes but I’ve had a long month of comtemplating and that’s what spring is all about… reorganizing. :) For right now I think Friday is going to be a day of rest for me so instead I’m going to post photos of Butter when I can so I can spend my time on Friday working on my website. Have you ever clicked on my website link? It leads to the most ugly, not even remotely started website that I’ve spent maybe a week doing in September. So….it needs my love and there needs to be more Butter photos (that’s sarcasm as I have like 60GB of Butter photos on my hard drive – no joke)
I was just thinking today about what was happening in my life in April last year. For one it was sunny, and I had just gotten my facial piercings put in (I cant believe I’ve had these guys for a whole year – I still love them so much), and I had apple colored hair and bangs! So much has changed but still I feel like the same person. I’m actually dying my hair this color again next week, I miss the green. I decided to add a silly one of me trying to do a double exposure. The shots all turned out blurry but I still like this one, I look so serious though!
Maybe I can do a year ago post in April every year, that’d be fun.
