Wake Up Wednesday

Last week's challenge was to use one of your talent's to bless someone else.  I got to take some pictures of my new little niece. (I posted a few HERE if you missed them.)  I also tried to take a lot of random shots, in hopes of turning it into a cool black and white journal for my sister.  I like to remember the small details.  It's those little things that take me back and remind me of the moment.

I couldn't help myself with that last picture.  I love that crusty little guy.

This week's challenge is to do something you don't naturally enjoy for someone else.  That means the sacrifice will be a little greater :)  It might mean cleaning or cooking or driving.  The idea is to care enough that you'll do what you don't usually like to in order to help someone else.  I'm excited to see what you come up with.  I'm thinking you guys will have some funny responses.

So, did anyone share a talent to bless someone else this week?  I'd love to hear about it.  Thanks for reading.


  1. You got some wonderful pictures for your sister. I'm sure she loves them!

  2. Love the b&w shots. I sewed a pennant for my little cousin who is being tested. She doesn't know I know, but my heart aches for her, kids don't like to be different. She will triumph I know it, but what could be better than a pennant with pom pom trim. Once again I forgot about the challenge but having a kind heart is helping me out here;)

  3. I haven't started it, but I'm sharing my talent of sewing with the local animal humane. I'm going to make some crate covers for the bottle puppies and kittens and I'm going to fix a few of their x-pen covers. :) Can't wait!

  4. Cute idea! What a great gift!

    I LOVE that last pic. :) The expression is priceless.

  5. I am on my way to my son's house to do some once a month cooking for them. My son and my daughter-in-love both work. I hope this eases the burden for them some. i will do the laundry while I'm there, too. Pray for my son, he just found out today that he is losing his teaching job (once again) at the end of the school year.

  6. I did something quite similar to you - I took pictures for my friend. Her little boy is turning 6 and we did a little photo shoot over at Wheeler Farm.

  7. I enjoyed this challenge. I spent over 4 hours "helping" a girl from church sew owl shaped pillows for her daughter's upcoming birthday party. She doesn't know a thing about sewing so it was really me sewing and her keeping me company, but it was a lot of fun and she was so so grateful.

  8. Oh! I baked some cookies! Maybe it doesn't count quite as much because I'm not actually talented at baking. But I know my husband just loves these cookies so I couldn't resist :)
    And great job on next weeks challenge! It's so hard for me to break out of my comfort zone, I'll try!

    Beautiful photos by the way. You are a stunning photographer.

  9. What a sweet bubba! Those photos just document the moments perfectly. Black and white makes them all harmonise too. Love it! That Baden is a classic.

  10. LOVE your photos. Your crusty guy always cracks me up.

    I offered to come and paint something for a friend of mine. She turned me down. Maybe I'll have to be a little more forceful? :) Thanks as always for the weekly challenges. It's nice to be pulled out of my comfort zone.

  11. You got some great memorable shots! I wish I got some of those details recorded. You are such a great sister.
