October Favorites

As Favorite #1 on this list says, I have taken a deliberate break from my Picture a Day and Video a Day projects. There is just so much going on in my life right now and I was finding it a chore on the days I did take pics/vids, and a source of guilt and regret on the days I didn’t.

I’m having lots of fun with these Nettio Designs Fave-o-Rites templates, and so my compromise is to make one of these for the month. As an added bit of fun, I’m using the current Pixel Scrapper blog train goodies to make my page. I’m not as smitten with this month’s page as I was with September’s, which seemed more vibrant and energetic (partly due to the palette) and just generally turned out more how I wanted it to. I also didn’t have a single picture of myself from October (though that allowed me to happily put in a pic of my best friend and her new baby). At any rate, it’s nice to have a record of the month in some form, so I’ll take it. 🙂
