Weekly Photo Challenge – Partners

Published June 30, 2016 by wackybrittany

This week’s photo challenge is Partners. This was a little difficult for me. I had no clue what to choose. A picture if my boyfriend and I? A picture of my brother and myself? I really wanted a picture of my brother and his new therapy dog, but I didn’t manage to get one of those. I won’t be seeing them for a few more days, and I feel it would’ve been a forced picture since he’s still apprehensive about her.

I chose this picture. I’m not sure it really shows partnership in the traditional way, but I really like this picture, so I’ll swing with it. I was on a small family trip to go get my younger brother a therapy dog. The trip was a total of four hours long, there and back. I was sitting right next to him in the van. On our way there Joseph, my younger brother, randomly reaches his hand over and for a brief moment we held hands.  I’m glad I took this picture because it’s rare that he reaches out like this to hold hands. I live for precious moments like this. He isn’t one for too much affection, or to reach out and be interactive with people unless he wants something.

This week’s The Daily Post’s challenge is numbers. When looking at my pictures at first it may not make sense, but when I explain a little bit you’ll see why I chose my pictures.

This is a close up of a hat I was working on.

This is a closeup of a small pile of buttons.

At first when I was thinking about this challenge I thought of having to show actual numbers, but when I thought about it more I chose not to. These pictures resembles the fact that when it comes to my crafting I am surrounded by numbers. 

I use numbers when I crochet. The number of stitches I start with, how many stitches I have to increase or decrease, the measurement of the project I am working on, the size of hook, how many skeins of yarn I will need, how many yards of yarn I will need, and other things I can’t think of right now.

The buttons represent how many crafting supplies I have and need for projects. I have several skeins of yarn, an assortment of buttons, a few pairs of scissors (that I can’t keep track of), pieces of fabric, assortment of beads, wires, pliers, sewing needles, assortment of threads, amongst other types of crafting material.

When it comes to crafting I never stopped to think about how numbers are important. Not only for how many items I need to complete the project, but to the numbers required throughout the project as well.

I could go on and on to explain how numbers are important to crafting, but I won’t. I’m hoping I give a somewhat clear idea to numbers in crafting.

Thanks for taking time to read my blog. Take care!

Jubilant in His Own Ways

Published May 20, 2016 by wackybrittany

This week’s Daily Post photo challenge is Jubilant. When I was thinking of what picture I wanted to use for this challenge I immediately thought of my younger brother Joseph. I have talked about him before in a couple of other blog posts. He is eight years old, has Autism and diabetes, and he is non verbal.

I was able to capture a few rare moments. He was laughing and smiling. He doesn’t smile or laugh very often. I originally thought of the one where he’s wearing sunglasses and smiling. I found a couple more on my Facebook of him smiling as well. The pictures are a couple to a few years old.

He loves going on the swing. He gets very excited and start to laugh sometimes when he’s swinging. I was able to capture one of those moments.

The bottom picture of him and myself was just a random chance. I like to try to take selfies with him once in a while. Lately he just shoves my iPad away and wants to be left alone. I guess I catch him at bad times. I still try to take pictures with him whenever I can.

Joseph is usually very happy, he just doesn’t show it very often. I love these rare moments.

I decided to add one more picture at the bottom. A picture of him content. He had just put my shoes on for some reason, I just thought it was kind of silly.
