Jan 2013 summary / Feb 2013 plans

For Creative Every Day challenge 2013 by Leah Piken Kolidas, I´m taking at least a picture a day for the whole year, scrapbook for my UKScrappers´ team and paint a cover once a week for Paint Party Fridays. This is my fourth time around with the Pic-a-day project and at the end of each month I make a mosaic of the month´s pictures and also summarize it in numbers for the My month in numbers feature by Julie Kirk which is a project where you sum up your month with ... numbers. Lol!  Here are some inspirational instructions on how to go about it. I´ve taken 031 out of the possible 031 pictures for 2013 so far.

The numbers:
6.10 am, the time I could see the sun come up over my fence on New Year´s Day. 

100 years, the number of years commemorated by the Monument "Centennial of the City of Neuquén" in picture #5, which is a sculptural piece of major proportions. It has spheres of different colors as a symbol of universality and ethnic integration of Neuquén which are supported on a moebius treadmill that depicts the "infinity" (referring to the unlimited development of the city) and end up in a curtain of water of 5 meters high which means the junction of the rivers Limay and Neuquén.

1700km the distance between Buenos Aires and San Carlos de Bariloche . We stayed at the Ruca Carel complex, up the Cerro Catedral.
A gazillion and a half pictures of flowers. Lol! No, honestly: 343 holiday pictures.

8: the number of family members we met for outdoors activities. My cousin Pablo, his wife, their three kids, his sister in law, brother in law and niece. What a blast! :D

2: the number of blog guests this month: Lindsay Drya Vanhove for week #03 and Charlotte Poole for week #04.

Btw: Weeks available if you want to play along and be published here with a piece (any size, any technique) representing the number of the week: 07, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 20, 21, 24, 25, 26, 27, 29, 30, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 38, 39, 40, 41, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48 and 49. 

Painting´s summary:
  Yes, I missed #2. *blush*

Plans for February:
* Participate in Wishcasting Wednesdays by Jamie Ridler
* Participate in Full Moon Boards
* Participate in 29 Faces by Ayala Art

Aaaaaaand: after coming back from the holidays and before tackling the year I had a look at the systems/storages/rooms/activities that needed a reshuffling and it reminded me of last year´s "decluttering, organizing and creativity" series. Would you be up for round #2 in 2013? :D

What a bright, blue and uplifting start to the year. Your holiday home looks beautiful!

Wishing you another fun year of number collecting and sharing.

I've added you to the board now:

[p.s: one of the reasons I like using Pinterest to store everyone's posts is that you don't need to be a member to view them all in one place and click through to the posts. So it's fine that you're not registered there. :-)

Happy February Paula!

Julie :-)

Paula, This is a wonderful beginning for 2013. Loved seeing what you are doing. As for organizing, I think the turn of a year makes us all think of that. I know I've been eyeing storage containers.

janice smith said...

Wow! You have so many great plans and you are SO organized about it all! I so admire that as I'm pretty much a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants sort of a girl myself! It sounds like your year is off to a great start.
