Just wanted to drop in! Things are going great in Orlando. I'm having a wonderful time and I don't feel like the wide-eyed new person that doesn't know anything anymore. Last year's seminar was definitely a crazy overwhelming experience and this year, I feel very relaxed and excited about my design work. :) 

Let's get to the good stuff...Instagram! If you have an iPhone, I'm guessing that this might be one of your favorite apps?? I love it. It's my go-to app. I love seeing all of the beautiful pictures from peoples' lives (nosy much?) and I love being able to easily record memories myself. I just recently jumped on the Instagram train toward the end of last year and I have loved looking back on my little collection of pictures.

Last year, I completed Project 365 and I thought seriously about doing it again for 2012, but decided to wait until the one day, maybe faraway, maybe soon time when Jon and I start a family. SO...when I saw that there were some fun monthly photo taking challenges floating around on Instagram, I knew it was something I'd be excited to take on.

I looked at a couple different photo challenges for February and decided to go with Instafa. I liked their interesting//challenging daily prompts and I'm having a lot of fun doing another photo challenge. :)

Above are my pictures for the first nine days. I've always loved dabbling around with photography so this challenge has been good for keeping me thinking outside the box on a daily basis. BTW -- I'm @maiedae on Instagram if you'd like to follow! :)

Are you doing any photo challenges this month//year?? What has been your favorite photo challenge??

Goodnight to you!


  1. Oh, I really like this challenge... (even more than the one I'm doing but shhh- don't tell anyone). My favorite is your landscape. Very nice.

  3. I wish i had seen that at the beginning of February; it's a lovely idea!
    Really enjoying your photographs!

  4. so cool, i love this post!


  5. lets just say, i am BEYOND jealous of everyone with an iPhone simply & purely because of the instagram app... so much so that next month when my upgrade is available i'm dumping android for a juicy apple. i'm such a heartbreaker.... anyway!! your photos are awesome! i especially love the guitar neck & jones soda!
