July in Janetville - 365 Pictures 2017

Since we are halfway through July in Janetville, I think it's time for an update in the 365 picture project!  Here are a few of my favorites from the past couple of weeks, in no particular order:



#170 - Living so close to the airport I hear and see the planes go overhead all the time.  It is amazing to me that we do not have more accidents as I watched these 4 planes do their landing/take off dance.  There was another plane coming in that I could not quite get in the picture.
#173 - June selfie.  I get so many compliments when I wear this hat.  I love it.

#186 - My new paper collection, Master Detective.  It will go so well with my Big City Hunt pictures!  The game's afoot!


#187 - A batch of cards I made to put on my Etsy site.  I love putting my own special touches on the cards.

#172 - The picture does not really do this flower justice because the color blue is just gorgeous.  It is called a Sapphire orchid.

#182 - I may be on a healthy eating plan but every once in a while a splurge is okay.  Shared this decadent banana pudding with Bill on a recent date night at Louisiana Bistro before the Queen concert.

#183 - This is a local casino and I just recently discovered that they have lights on it that change color.  You can see the blue a little on the left of the tree and there is also a yellow, a fuchsia and a red.  It is pretty cool to watch the colors change, about every five minutes.

#194 - I wish I could think of something to use these pretty cups for.  I love the colors.

#189 - Of course we have the full moon in July.

#191 - I made this for a project I was working on with Ali Edwards called One Little Word to help document my word of the year (Believe) and how it relates to my life.  Using the paints and stencils was something I don't normally do and I love the way this turned out.  Two paints, 1 stencil and two stamps with different colored inks.  

#192 - This is another one.  I know I'm going to be doing more of this type of thing for sure.

#193 - One more.  I think the saying of "Good things take time" goes well with the spiral.  

#190 - Date night.  Our first concert of the season at the Mountain Winery.  We saw Chris Isaak.  It was a great show.

#176 - My husband got to go to AT&T Park on a special tour and got to go into the visitor's dugout and see behind the scenes.  Pretty cool experience.

#185 - We are able to do the Safe and Sane fireworks in our yard so I managed to get a couple of great shots.  It is not always easy to get a good picture but I was lucky to catch one with lots of colors and different shapes. 


I've finished the first of the two books I got to hold these pictures:


Here is what a few of them look like on the pages and how I ended the first six months.


I'm glad I decided to split the year up.  The one I did in 2013 turned out to be too stuffed for one book.

What do you think of my 365 pictures?  Do you have any projects you are working on all year?  Love to hear about it!

  2. I keep being inspired by your 365 photo project Janet, but I just can't seem to follow through for more than a couple days at a time. Sigh. But I love looking at the photo glimpses into your daily life - how fun! Those cups are lovely indeed - I'd be tempted to make them into candles or little succulent gardens and gift them.

    1. Thanks, Deborah. I will tell you that some days I have to take three or four pictures just to keep up and at the halfway point I considered stopping. But then I decided to keep going. After all, it's my project and I can do what I want! You had a great idea with those cups. Maybe I'll see how much they are. They are in a little shop by my PO box so I see them quite often. Happy Monday!

  3. Hey Janet,
    Great bunch of photos here! I LOVE the fireworks one! It is so hard to get good shots of fireworks. I'm impressed!
    I totally get what you're saying about the picture of the sapphire orchid not doing it justice. I've seen those in person and they are absolutely stunning. Like stop-in-your-tracks stunning. I was blown away at its beauty.
    That casino shot is cool too. Reminds me of my hometown, Niagara Falls (NY) and how at night they light up the Falls with colored lights and every few minutes the color changes. So your casino shot took me back home for a minute...

    Have a great Sunday!

    1. Oh Michele, I'll bet the changing colored Falls are really cool! Maybe someday I'll get to visit them. Hubby and I want to travel the US when we both are retired and have the money to do that. (Will that ever really happen?) There was a whole section of the sapphire orchids and it was so beautiful. Thanks for stopping by!
