Last week I happened to be looking at the door to our pantry and all of a sudden I went "It could be the door to the TARDIS." Nathan looked at me and said "sure hun, whatever you want." (I'm sure thinking that my desire to paint the door into a TARDIS would go away) I went on the hunt for the perfect shade of blue paint the next day (I found it at Freddy's). Here are the photos of the TARDIS coming to life. How do you like it?

First coat of paint (also photo of the day 8.25.10)
Here are the most recent photos from each day-I am trying to get better at posting them each day but each day gets busy. I have also missed my first day already but I am sticking with it. In the past if I missed a day of something I would just quit and I am really trying hard to break that habit. Here are the most recent photos...
Have you ever read a book that took you out of the world you were in? You knew people where around you and things were going on but you couldn't focus you were so wrapped up in their world. I have a few times and each time it happens it's so hard to refocus on the real world. I was there today with a series of books called Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. I had the first two books from the library this morning and was so sucked in that even after reading the plot online I had to go and buy the 3rd book. The interesting part of it to me is that I don't know if I liked them or not but that I had to finish them. Until they were finished I couldn't think of anything else. Have you had a book do this to you?
This man took a photo every day for 18 years until he died. What started out as an accident turned into a photo journal of his life. Today I am 27 and a half years old-to some just starting out in my life and to others (like my 16 year old sister) I am all grown up. To me I am 5 and want to color or two and I want my blanket and then I am 18 and shy and 10 and fearless. I want to record my life for me or others or no one but I want a record that I was here. Starting today I am going to attempt to take a photo each day of my life. In this day of digital photography it's so easy to take hundreds of photos in a few minutes and that is a little like what day to day life feels like. So much in so quick a time-weather, mail, texts, twitter, tumblr, love, heartache, sex, drugs, life is here on the internet, on tv, on...on...on. Part of my goal is to stop, breathe, and pay attention to at least that one moment I take that photo. Even though I will be using a digital camera and keeping a blog instead of film and a journal each photo will be the only one I take for the photo of the day. If it's blurry or I find something I like better later in the day I won't substitute it. Some days it will be something that means something-other days it will be just a photo I snapped (I know at some point there will be an photo taken at 11:59pm of some meaningless item).
It's been a while due to crazy last minute I have to finish this stuff. I promise I won't be away so long again. I finished KC's quilt! It ended up being 10ft long by 7 1/2ft wide! I also finished the items for my craft swap partner. An awesome Doctor Who clock, notecards, and a bag. She in turn sent me a bag, some costars, and a box decorated like a TV. Now I am going to try and make this laptop case from Sew Mama Sew. We are heading to Oregon over Labor Day and I want to be able to use it for the trip.
Not much more to say tonight-I'm a little tired and bored which is a deadly combination with a redhead. I'm going to go now and have some waffles while waiting for the new episode of Warehouse 13 to download.
