Yes, Yes, Yes!
This is my last post for the 365 Self Portrait Project.
It was great. It was good. I had ups and I had downs.
Since I started it I wrote a few essays about this project for:
World Moms Blog: “(Self)Portrait of a Mother(hood)“, and for BonBon Break.
First post for BonBon Break: “Portraits of a Mother” earned me position of Top 5 posts of 2012 which I am really proud of.
The second one: “ 365 Self-Portrait Project: a Life – changing Resolution“ is a great summary of what this project means to me and how it changed me, at some point.
I do want to say: THANK YOU to all of you who have been coming back each Friday and leaving me all the great and encouraging comments!!! If not for you I am not sure if I would have finished it.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
Those last pictures I wanted to be more creative, better, more meaningful… at least to present my thoughts more clearly, but then, as many times before, life happened and I was in a rush or it got too dark, or simply I was not in a mood.
We were trying to take some romantic photographs for my Valentine’s Day ad for the business, and this is the best shot we ended up with.
I’ll tell you something: It is darn hard to get romantic with two small kids around. This picture was taken while both our kids were screaming they heads off just because they had to stay on the floor ABANDONED (how dare we!!!) for about 10 minutes.
This project was a bit like getting naked in front of many people. Showing my personal life, day by day, writing about ups and downs, being in my pajamas and without make-up, etc… even though, I have managed to keep most of the drama and all the details of my private life behind the curtains 🙂
So, naked, but not really 🙂
2012 was a leap year so it was 366 days, that’s why I decided to take one more picture.
I mean, two last pictures:
both pictures have latest Bonnie’s texture “Brown Rice Paper” in them.
The very last picture had one more layer added to it and it’s this picture:
For all of you who want to: feel free to download it. For the full resolution picture you need to click on it (it must open in a separate window), then click on it again and drag it onto your desktop.
Once again, thank you all for being here with me and for me!
Hope to see you around!!!
