As of Apr 5th 2013 I have changed the name of my tumblr blog to kirstyes - Photos and Words. The description below explains why I set it up as kirstyes' 366 Photo/Small Stone Challenge but because I achieved the challenge but still love tumblr it is time for a change.
2013 sees me attempting another challenge so daily (Mon-Sat) I fold and cut a page from my kirigami calendar and take a snap of the outcome. Sundays see me taking a picture of my happiness jar (my attempt to make a note of all the things that make me happy this year - to be reviewed on New Year's Eve).
But tumblr is more than that to me now and I reblog lots of different types of things, from books to hunks, pretty things to cute things, things that make me snort, words and phrases that speak to me.
After attending LeakyCon London in Aug 2013 I feel I need to mention my fandoms now - Harry Potter (of course), Supernatural, The Hunger Games, Divergent, Hybrid Chronicles, YA Literature in general, Buffy and Angel and most things Joss Whedon, Musicals, Disney, Starkid and I believe I'm a new Wrock convert.
I also blog at http://www.kirstyes.co.uk and may link to a couple of the posts there.
How/Why I started tumblring
Last January I took part in the 2011 River of Stones small stone challenge, and I have also been inspired by the 365 Photo Challenge I have seen people participating in on Facebook.
Because 2012 was a leap year I planned to take a photograph on my phone and to write a small stone (click on the image below for details) every day for 366 days starting 1st January 2012. Rather than use my existing blog (www.kirstyes.co.uk) I decided to set up this tumblr. account instead.
Some days the photo and my small stone be connected but this may not always be the case.
This blog is my effort to be mindful in 2012 and pay attention to what is going on around me. I hope some of you will join in too.
The background colour to this blog is the one I named kirstyes' writing ink of luck in Unicef's own a colour and help save a child's life campaign - see my colour here - http://www.ownacolour.com/#160878 - why not click and buy your own?
Here's hoping that 2012 is a fantastic year for us all.
