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!

    Love the photos, you definitely see the beauty in every day. And to put them in a book is an awesome idea – I shouldn’t be surprised with your crafting but I’ve never thought of it ☺

    Oh Ally, you know I will. I am thinking to get them to use just because. I eat fresh fruit and yogurt mix all the time so maybe they will be good for that. Another blogger friend suggested using them for candles or mini plants. I’ll have to check out how much they cost. The dessert was definitely delicious, good thing it was before the concert so I had a chance to dance off the calories! Thanks for stopping by!

    I like your 365 photos. That desert looks divine. And if you figure out what to do with those pretty cups, you’ll share the photo, right? They are cute as can be.
