- - Photo A Day Challenge | May 2014 - -

Hi friends!

This month I continued participating in the monthly photo a day challenge hosted by Chantelle of Fat Mum Slim.

The concept of this photo challenge is simple: take a picture a day that corresponds with the guiding prompts (see below) and then share it with the #FMSphotoaday hashtag.

To be completely honest, I didn't finish this month's challenge either. I tried though, and that's what counts!

You can check out the days for which I took pictures right after the jump...


J is for none other than Julep! Funny enough, as I was thinking of what I could do with this prompt, the beloved magenta box with the May collection arrived at my doostep. :)

May 2: SNACK

Haha, I promise you - I did not eat these in one day...nor did I eat them alone!


At the beginning of my last #FMSphotoaday post, I showed you guys four pencils from my pencil collection. As promised, this here is my modest collection. Again, it's not really something that I consciously collect. Rather, it's a collection that seems to have accumulated over the years since elementary school.

May 4: US

For this prompt, please enjoy a blurry photo of my brother and I bonding over a swiss & ham sandwich! I think another way to interpret this prompt would have been to see "US" as U.S. or America. Just a thought. :)


I decided to try taking this photo from the viewpoint a small creature (an ant or something slightly bigger) looking up at the world through the grass.

May 8: BLUE

The sky!


I recently rediscovered my love for eating cereal with fruits (quite possibly because we finally stocked up on both cereal and fruits).


My mom recently purchased two small hanging strawberry bushes for our backyard. This is a close-up of one of their flowers.

May 11: MOTHER

Speaking of my mother, her favourite flower is the carnation. I remember I read a cheesy joke about these flowers many years ago. It went something like: "What do you call a country with lots of cars?" "A carnation." Ohoho...good one!

May 14: LINES

I see a lot of lines in this photo. Do you?

May 17: BAG

The purse/bag I currently have is from JustFab. This is a close-up of the hardware on it. I should have purchased all of the colours when I still had a chance!


I've often been fairly good at being able to reproduce a sketch. One day in grade 10 I found a picture of a tree trunk that had amazing shading. The picture above is what I was able to copy from it. I never got to finish this sketch, but ever since then I've fallen in love with shading. I haven't been drawing or sketching in years, but I might start up a GiveIt100 challenge soon to renew my interest in it.

May 26: PET

Lately there's been a bunny that keeps visiting the backyards in our line of townhouses. While I don't have (and have never had) a pet, I think I would love either a bunny or a kitty as a pet.

I believe those are all the photos that I had for May. Unfortunately I couldn't come up with a picture for all of the prompts, but I'm going try again in June.

Will you be joining me for the June challenge? :)

Thank you for reading! -A.~
