Unique Hearts Photo Challenge

,3 numberplate 5 O

This is it! This is my 350th post! (Cue Party Streamers and Balloons .... Richard Gear walks in....our eyes meet.....I'm wearing that slinky, sexy red dress......suddenly I want nothing more than to fall into.........) oh, sorry...I got carried away....back to the FAQ-350 celebration.

In all seriousness, I want to say that blogging has been a wonderfully therapeutic,inspiring and heart warming experience for me. I remember that I started blogging way back in 2006 because it seemed interesting to me. I remember seeing the word "blog" and thinking I wonder what that stands for. I still don't know and I don't care. Blogging narrowed my world so that I could connect with other like minded people. Suddenly, I was not the only one in the world that picked things up off the ground to make stuff.

I have learned so much from my girlfriends from all over the world. I have learned that we are all so similiar and yet so unique. Which brings me to this: When I was in nursing school, one of my instructors made my entire class learn this affirmation... ."I am a unique and precious human being always growing in wisdom and love." That was over 15 years ago and that affirmation has stuck in my head. It comes in times of stress...either in an outloud attempt at being funny to decrease stress or as a silent affirmation in my head. Today this affirmation comes to me as a great insight. All of my blog friends are unique and precious and they need to hear that from me. I love reading about your life, your families, and your adventures! I cry with you about your sorrows and heartaches. So, we may not see each other in person......but when I don't see an updated blog for some time......I begin to be concerned about you. So get to bloggin' sistah!


For those of you who want to get to the challenge part of this post: Since you are a unique a precious human being.....I challenge you to take a photo of a UNIQUE heart. Nothing typical please. Take a photo of something that is shaped like a heart or several things grouped together to make a heart shape. Show me your uniqueness here. Since all of us are unique and precious, the winner will be chosen randomly from all participants. Here is one I created tonight

I created this heart by using several white stones and I added the blue one as a reminder of our uniqueness. The winner will be announced on Feb 1st. You will receive a special crafty valentine from me.

  1. Create a unique heart and blog the photo with a link to my blog
  2. let me know you are participating

that is it!

Boy, you said that perfectly. I'm a new blogger of a few months, but I am already connected to folks I'll probably never meet (in person that is). I gotta think of that heart thing. I love a challenge!

This maybe what the doctor ordered!
I have been so blog constipated, it is not even funny! hehe, ok, maybe a little funny. Anyway, I just got a new camera, and what better way than to show it off?

I'll work on this challenge this week for sure!
