These past couple of weeks have been… ugh. My job is considered essential, and I’m grateful I’m still working, but everyone’s hours have been cut in half for who knows how long. The uncertainty of what’s next is stressful. Have to take it one day at a time, I suppose.
The hobby has been a nice distraction, and I’m loving the number of photo challenges going on. I’m participating in one, the Shelter and Share photo challenge, and I’m enjoying it so much. Whenever the panicky feelings or “what if?” questions start in my mind, I try to refocus on what I can do for the day’s photo prompt instead. It’s been helping.
I share these on my social media accounts, but I also wanted to share them here too.
Day 1: Fool’s Gold
I thought this gold mule keychain would fit this prompt well. I also found a piece of pyrite from my grandpa’s mineral collection, and since that’s literally “fool’s gold” I thought I would include it too.
Day 2: No TP? How about TBs?
Or both? In my head they’re racing back home after successfully purchasing a package of TP from the store.
I spent way too much time on this package of toilet paper, so here’s a close up. The label is from one of My Froggy Stuff’s printables.
There are six individual rolls in here. 😳 (made from a napkin I found stuffed in my purse of course!)
Day 3: First Model
My first Traditional model was Like A Diamond on the Adios mold. I had only recently shared a photo of him on my Instagram page, so I thought I would approach this prompt a little differently.
Day 4: Caturday
Day 5: Hobby Item You Made
I’ve made a lot over the years, so I tried to fit as much of it as I could in one shot.
Day 6: When Pets and Models Collide
Denny (my parents’ cat) wasn’t too interested in this one.
Day 7: Small but Mighty
A continuation of “first model”
Day 8: On Wednesdays We Wear Pink
I don’t have nearly enough pink stuff in my collection and I need to correct this asap. In the meantime here is Rhian in her pink blanket. The dog was a Michaels find from a few years ago.
Day 9: Silliest, Goofiest, Guiltiest Pleasure Model
I love dressing up my horses in brightly colored blankets with cute/silly prints on them. The ice cream blanket was supposed to come to BreyerWest with me, but I ran out of time/motivation to finish it.
Day 10: Birthday Gift Model
These two horses were a gift for my 15th birthday, so I knew I wanted to do something with them. There’s a plate of chopped apples for the horses, and an apple pie instead of cake. I usually prefer pie or ice cream over cake for my birthday. 🥧
A close up of the presents I (again) spent way too much time on:
Thank you for creating this challenge, Sarah and Kirsten Wellman! Now to plan out today’s photo 📷

Wonderful pictures, and I love the details of the items you “spent too much time on.” My cats, like Denny, are equally unimpressed with my attempts of “interesting photos.”
Not nearly enough pink looks just fine to me! And the galloping TB rider made me laugh out loud. What great entries.
I always have apple crumble on my birthday
love your work
