Challenge: Stop/Slow motion. I had a bunch of great ideas for this challenge but I couldn't get them to work for me when it came down to it. I'm in love with this shot though - it might not necessarily show/stop motion...but what an interesting view of the Salt Lake Valley!
4 days start to finish - this is during the "blocking" phase - it has three dark brown buttons near the top, closing the top of the cardigan that I added later. I *barely* had enough yarn to finish this. Literally, about 1 yard leftover. And it would have worked for Lily but only for one season and it would have bugged me by being just a little too short. VERY luckily, I know someone super awesome who wanted it for her daughter and paid me generously for it! Thanks Bree!!

For getting my blog updated, I allowed myself a reward of entering this "Edit Me" challenge! My girl Bree has been doing these for quite a while and I wanted to try my hand at it. So here is the original:
And my edit. I love the texture on the tree so I exaggerated it a bit, sharpened the details on the camera, used a boost action in PS and played a bit with the color saturation. Voila!
Side by side:
Halloween!!! Finally! Today was a full day of trick or treating. We went to work/daycare a little late in the morning and had fun hanging out together at home for a couple extra hours. Lily had to go to daycare and was dreading naptime - I don't blame her. Kid was *so* excited to go trick or treating. I was able to meet up with her at daycare just before her class went trick or treating and helped her finish getting into her costume. Here she is with Sheera, Iron Man, Hellboy, Tinkerbelle and Thomas the Train.
