UmberDove and the Technicolor Technology Break

Way back in February as I looked over my goals for the year and began filling in my calendar with far off dates I had the thought, "Holy Shenanigans, the month of August is going to be absurdly busy." And now, over half way through the month, I feel like a prophet. I've had to really unplug for the last two weeks just to catch up with my own two feet and I'm starting to feel like taffy left in the twister a bit too long.


I need:
1. A massage. One of those super oily ones, with hot rocks and cucumber slices.
2. A gin and tonic. Stat.
3. Approximately 700 hours of uninterrupted studio time.
4. A chubby slice of peach cobbler (the scent should be wafting by soon...)
5. Someone to do my dishes (I'm over it)
6. Two plane tickets to Cabo San Lucas (OH WAIT! My flight leaves Saturday morning!! Yippee!)

* Picture snapped by the ever talented Mme. Bookling and "borrowed" by me.*

So with that, I'm signing back off, exhaustedly yours, and will return the world of internet wonders on Septmeber 1st. Hopefully with a quieter head and tanner legs.

Heads and Shoulders, Knees and Toes

After the great success of the past photo challenges, 30 Days of Self and A Shot in the Dark: December Evenings, I've been thinking a lot about beginning a new challenge. But while I was hemming and hawing over the subject matter, Mr. Chris Bradley came up with a douzey of an idea and I'm jumping right in AND taking the liberty of saying I'd love to see YOUR pictures!

Here's the dealio:
The photo challenge is titled Heads and Shoulders, Knees and Toes and, yep you guessed it, consists of photos of those body parts (yours or someone else's). The challenge will run from right now (it actually started August 1st but I'm a little late - which means you can be too) all the way until September 1st. All you need is a camera, a head (or shoulders or knees or toes) and a Flickr account and you're golden! So join up, get snapping and try to post around four photos each week (more or less is completely acceptable too)!

I'll see your bee's knees soon!
