June´s 2014 summary in numbers

For June 2014´s update and goals check in I´m doing {My month in numbers}. It is a project taking place at Julie Kirk´s blog  where you sum up your month with numbers. Here are some inspirational instructions on how to go about it. This is my 26th consecutive participation.

I´m keeping 115 photos for the month. Here are my favourites from each day. Click on the mosaic to see it bigger.

I followed 18/30 of the #photoprompts for June plus 5 Plan B takes:  Find July´s prompts here! For daily reminders of the #photoprompts Like my Facebook Page here or Follow me on Twitter here.

News of the month:
Edwina, that´s my car, got to her 40000th km on June 1st. I kept an eye on the dial so I could park and take the picture.

Tati participated in an UN project at the National Congress for her school as part of a three team group, one of the teams got a prize for their work. Congrats kids!

Our son bought his first dot com domain. :)

"On line" goals:
In June my Paula - Buenos Aires Facebook page grew by 143 followers. Somebody must have been promoting my page as I got 100 new Likes in a 24 hours period. I´m hoping for the 800 followers milestone next. *I even have my celebration sign ready* The goal for 2014 is 1000. My Twitter account for which I didn´t set goals is growing too. 206 persons are following @PBAtweets.

Goals check in for Feb ´14

Time to summarize my month in numbers for the My month in numbers feature by Julie Kirk.  Here are some inspirational instructions on how to go about it. 

I´m keeping 90 pictures for the month. Here are my 25 favourites. Click on the mosaic to see it bigger.



I finished working on the 365 prompts for 2014 and reshuffled the lot to make a monthly voyage of discovery out of them. If you want daily inspiration on what to photograph, go to my Paula - Buenos Aires Facebook page, which by the way grew by 20 followers in February. Sweet.


I had two guests this month at the blog. I interviewed Quinn McDonald onher new book and how to deal with our Inner Critic and Lisa Beaulieu on her art project with colourful Fimo angels left to be found.
My "hobbies" goals for this year include: 60 layouts (0 so far), 12 fiction books ( 1 in Feb, 2 total), 6 non fiction ( 0 for Feb, 3 in total ) and 6 rereadings (1 began in Jan).

I´m currently reading this one
Not much progress in my "go out" goals for 2014. From the 6 new places to eat still 0 new, 1 craft fair in Feb (1 in Jan so 2 total), 0 animé exhibitions till Feb but already 1 in March! and  from the 3 new Museums the count is still at 1 art exhibit in Jan. We did go to an antiques fair though:



So, what did happen this month?
My son was 18 the same day I was ... some more years. ;)

Our girl and her bestest friends (yea, I know it is just best but this girls are more than that ;) ) had a chocolate picnic for Valentine´s Day.
And after three wonderful months it was back to school time for them.
Uniform ready the night before
What about you? Still on track? Lost a bit of focus? Went absolutely off the original plan? Get back on the saddle. Start again where you are with what you have. :)

New creative project: the process

This is where I´ve been working on a new 365 project, with one of the best Patagonian views. The Ruca Carel cabin in Cerro Catedral, a very small village up the mountain near San Carlos de Bariloche, Río Negro Province, Patagonia Argentina.
This is how I roll aka "the process".
Step 1: gather my planning materials. A4 sheets of ruled paper, coloured pens, sticky notes, ruler, scissors.
Step 2: choose my colours for goals and tasks. Design the monthly templates.
Remember to keep the water intake running! Pretty cups help a relaxing atmosphere for work. ;)
Step 3: get the calendar to plan dates for daily tasks.
Step 4: get each month´s template displayed.
Step 5: cut sticky notes to size.
Step 6: write daily tasks on sticky notes and start playing with placements.

In case you are wondering what the project is about: I´m leading a cell phone photography project with daily prompts. You can already find the prompts at my Facebook page "Paula - Buenos Aires". Start whenever you want and play for a year. Or maybe a just for a month. You always have your phone with you, start snapping!
