it's monday, so...

...there's a new post up on Me & You 52, where "O" is for "observe.


There's a Mobile Monday post up on Mortal Muses.

And I have the day off of work so I thought I'd come out and say hi to anyone who's still out there reading my blog after my slow summer hiatus. I am slowly crawling out of my rut. I even got a little creative spark over this past weekend that got me taking some self-portraits again. I haven't really picked up my camera much in months, so this felt really good.

It all started when one of my contacts on Instagram @teagano {you can also find her blogging here} turned me on to a 7 days of self-portraits challenge--and these have to be faceless selfies which is not as easy as it sounds. If you've been here before you know I love me some selfies, but every day for 7 days is a stretch even for me. But I am doing it, and it's been fun to be creative again. I am on Day 5 today, here are 2 of my shots, both taken and processed with iPhone.

I call this one, "Hide"...


And this one is "Cover"...


It's not too late to join if you are on Instagram. Just take a faceless self-portrait and tag it with #7faceless. Hope to see you there--my handle is @urbanmuser if we haven't connected yet. Thanks for stopping by today, I appreciate it!

We all need a break sometimes. It seems to rejuvinate us. Glad to hear the spark is ignited again.
