|E is for Elephant|
For E, I had a lot of elephants in our house to choose from - we must have at least 30 carvings, statues, photos, pillows, you name it. I even did that painting for Cam's room. But I had a vision of our soft little elephant that both boys snuggled with at some point, and I imagined a nostalgic, warm-and-fuzzy depiction of childhood/babyhood. For F, I remembered the bright multi-coloured Mardi Gras boa I got on a night out with my friend Dan and decided on feather. But the bright red was so unnatural, I pulled out all my photoshop stops and achieved more what I was aiming for - light, soft, etherial.

For G, I started by shooting a vintage globe I have, which was fine, but I wanted to step outside the box a little bit, and ended up doing a self-portrait of sorts to capture my grandmother's gold necklace, something I remember her wearing all the time. I am happy with this one - other than the sun damage it shows!

H was one I knew I wanted to do - since my theme is My Favourite Things, I took the stone shaped like a heart that Chris found years and years ago while we were out for a walk and set it against the setting sun.

For I, I of course did my iPhone. I once headed out of the house without it and just about had a panic attack/turned around to get it/pulled over and tore the car apart before I found it in my purse. Yes, it's an un-healthy attachment.
So there you have it. I am working on J tonight and am not feeling very inspired. I was thinking jewellery, but I want to capture My Favourite Things, not alert potential thieves to Stuff Worth Stealing. We shall see what I can come up with. Let me know if you have any feedback or ideas for me! There seem to be a LOT of letters left...
