About Project 365

Thanks for stopping by my blog! This is Year 2 of my Project365 blog. What is a Project 365? It's a photo challenge involving people from all over the world posting one photo per day throughout 2011. Some photographers choose themes, however for now my photos will be totally random. I will be shooting with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi-18-55mm, 75-300mm zoom and 100mm 2.8 macro lenses. I edit in iPhoto and Photoshop Elements 9. Not all photos are "perfect"; the purpose is to make photography an everyday event.

I am not a professional. Photography has always been a diversion of mine. I am a primary grade teacher and passionate tech. enthusiast. I consider myself an experienced amateur with LOTS to learn!

You will find links to other photographers in the sidebar- do check them out! I have also joined the Flickr EdTech 365/2011 Group, and you can click this link to view the entire pool. I will be posting my photos to their group pool, as well as here on my photo blog. I welcome your constructive criticism!


1. Photos are to be taken in 2011.
2. Post your own work only.
3. Images may be edited or unedited- your choice.
4. Keep your images, text, and comments appropriate for all ages.

I made some crude curtains for my classroom this afternoon. It was time to update the ones I made 8 years ago. I found some cheery, joyful, (cheap) fabric. But here's the litmus test- when I have to get out my sewing machine's owner's manual to remember how to thread it... it's been way too long since my last sewing project! Note to self- time to get crafty again!


  1. I love the fabric! You're right, it is cheery. I also love how you photographed it; the shallow depth of field gives it lots of dimension. My machine sits unused a lot too!

  2. Great that you do this. Sad that teachers have to spend their time and money to spruce up their classes.
