Project 52 Update for Writer's Workshop

It's been a while since 
I reported on Project 52... 
45. Get a "Finalist" or better at Better Photo.  So far, I received a Finalist on the above photo from January. We'll see at the end of the month if it goes any further. ( Haven't gotten further than this yet...) 

46. Date night at least 2/month.  Last week we went to dinner and a movie. We saw True Grit. (My personal opinion... this one trumps the original by a LONG SHOT!!! I was ALSO BLOWN AWAY by the performance of Hailee Steinfeld as Mattie Ross! Holy Cow! This girl is only 8 months older than my obnoxious 13.5 yr old!! The talent she portrayed and professionalism!! WOW!! Just... WOW!!) Since this weekend we're going to St George, I guess we can count that as a long continuous 3 day date!!  ;D  Right? 

47. *K.I.S.S on blog posts,,, I hope I'm living up to that... I'm trying to. LOL!! Sometimes it's so simple I don't post.  ;p  Hehehe!!

48. *K.I.S.S. on the photography... Hmmm... I'm letting my business license lapse and reducing tremendously. I need to get back to the LOVE of it and away from feeling the OBLIGATION of it... I need to get a better BUSINESS sense before I renew my license. I need to learn how to earn my worth and not be an easy target to be taken advantage of. (Just so some "friends" know... I'm NOT referring to YOU!)  ;D 

*K.I.S.S. = Keep It Simple Stupid

1.) A vacation to remember.

2.) Finding the balance. How do you manage?
Having a hard time with this, but I'm working on it... 
3.) Husbands. A post that hopefully will not get you in trouble. 
Last Friday this was a nice post... ALL about Hubby!!  ;D
4.) A memorable date.
5.) How’s that New Years Resolution treating you? 
Project 52 is all about goals for 2011. My progress updates is above. I have a page dedicated to this, too. As I look over the things I have finished or made progress on... I find it interesting... but NOT surprising... that I haven't tackled ANY of the organization goals yet... * sigh*

Hello there - love your blog, especially the photos.
Thanks for stopping by my site and following me.
Be blessed today!

True Grit WAS fantastic. I really believe the only reason Hailee wasn't nominated for Best Actress is that people were afraid she might beat Natalie Portman. Just my conspiracy theory, though.

And good job on keeping things simple. It really does make such a difference!

Mya said...

Do you mind my asking what kind of camera you have - and do you have altered lighting?
I got tickled when I saw the K.I.S.S. toward the bottom of your post. You have this well thought out list of MANY,MANY things to work on and then you want to keep it simple. I could not have accomplished thinking about and composing such a list in 52 weeks.

Yes, dear Holly~own and know your worth. I remember a conversation with a friend about a business she wanted to start, making flower girl headpieces. Cost to her~$5.00. She was going to charge $7.00. What the H? Seriously, what is the point? I suggested she think more of herself and her talents and she thought I was weird. YOU are a talented woman. Don't dumb it down. :) Love you and have fun!

Those are fabulous KISS ideas.

I went to True Grit last night.
I really didn't love it.

I love your photography passion. I need to do better.

There is a writing challenge from 'girl from north country' which I found on Saturday at my blog. Join up and you could get a reward - see her cool blog for details. She simply wants people to answer the question below and link it to her blog, leaving her a comment linking her to your story.

The Question is....

Who is this man? (the picture on my blog)
Yep - It’s that simple, tell a story, short and sweet, or a tall tale.

Great post btw - love your pictures. Shah .X

find the love again - you deserve it and charge enough that you are excited to do the shoot - even if you have other things going on.

Congrats on being a finalist - that is awesome and the picture i so sweet.
