Seven-Day B&W Photo Challenge: Colour & Explanations

Seven-Day B&W Challenge-2

Hello everyone!

Last week, I took on the 7-day B&W photo challenge. It was super fun to take photos of things that are important to me. However, the hardest part was that I could not explain what each photo was about!

So…………. I am making a post with the explanations. After being inspired by Darren @ The Arty Plantsman‘s post, I also decided to show you guys the colour versions of my photos.

Hopefully, you will learn a bit more about me, my life and my quirky hobbies :’)

Day1

This is the medium-sized city where I’ve been living and working for the past 2.5 years. Although it is not my hometown (Shijiazhuang, Hebei, China) or where my family lives (Toronto, Ontario, Canada), it is starting to feel like home. I will miss this city when I move across the country in January!

This is my greyhound, Charles (who you may remember from my previous blog posts!)Β When not eating, he can be found (very reliably) on his comfy dog bed.

Day3

Aside from blogging, reading and writing, I also love crafts.Β My friends and I met for a crafting day. We painted our own wine glasses!

Day5

This is the pair of drinking glasses that I painted for my friend, featuring her two kitties.

Day4

As some of you guys have guessed, this is the Scrivener file for my WIP (the research and plotting stages.) It is also the location in my home where I do my blogging, reading, and writing.

Pssst… See that table underneath? My dad and I made that! (Crafty genes run in the family :P)

Day6

Instead of buying Christmas cards, I thought it would be more personal to draw my own. In case you guys are wondering: the left-most card features a pair of ornaments, and the words “I like hanging with you”. (Isn’t that so cute!?)

Day7.jpg

Since I am moving across the country and leaving my current workplace soon, I also have many thank you cards to draw and write! This is my ongoing DIY project.

PS. I would absolutely have to credit Pinterest for the kitty glasses and the card designs. I could never have come up with those on my own :’)

Did any of these explanations surprise you? Do you like the black & white or colour versions better? Do you have a pet (or want to have one?) Do you like DIY and crafts?

    I knew you’d do such a post! Can’t say I’m surprised, the photos were self explanatory and fitting with what we know of you (not a bad thing unless you were aiming for a surprise).
    For such a project I prefer b&w too and yes I’m also a diy person!

    Great post Sophie, and I loved the explanations behind your photos. Wow your cards and those drinking glasses are so amazing, I’d love to be able to do something like that myself but I’m not all that art-y. Also your dog is just as adorable in colour as he is in black and white. ❀
    Again great post, and I've loved seeing all your photos over the past seven days, and again today in colour! πŸ˜€ ❀

    I had no idea you were so amazing at card-designing — and your calligraphy is so pretty 😍 I’ve recently got a book on calligraphy, and thought I definitely could improve on it, there’s something so relaxing about calligraphy that I love 😊 I’m a fan of handmade cards too! I feel like people appreciate a card I give to them so much more if it’s handmade, and I love it when I receive handmade cards myself because the thought that someone sat down and took time out of their day to make something for me feels so wonderful πŸ˜„ I enjoyed reading your stories behind the pictures!

      Thank you Zoie ❀
      That's awesome to hear that you like calligraphy! I think I remember your post about the calligraphy book recently. It sounds like something that is fun to learn. All the best!
      Yes I also love to receive handmade and crafty items as gifts, since it shows a lot of thought πŸ™‚
