self-portrait challenge

here is the challenge for next tuesday! i'm proposing something a little different, in the hopes that some of us who are tentative about posting our faces/figures/whatnot, will be able to ease into our new fun!!

tuesdays challenge is: put your best foot forward



our feet carry us along in this world. we ran and jumped and played with our feet when we were growing up. our feet carried us off to school, off to new homes, new communities. our feet move us as we pace the floor.

have you looked at your feet lately? are they in your favorite heels? are you barefoot? are you wearing exercise shoes? what's on your feet this weekend? what do your feet say about you? do they make you laugh? are you self-conscious about them? in need of a pedicure?

take a few minutes and check out your feet this weekend!! post your photos on tuesday!!

i am also trying out a few different names for our self-portrait tuesdays. i am aware that there is already a self-portrait tuesday movement out there. it is very important to me that i don't just grab someone else's ideas without giving proper credit, etc. so, anyone have a name for our tuesday challenges?? send me an email!!

I've been out & about today, and as I drove in remembered you'd be posting the self-portrait theme...so I hurried upstairs to check it out. Yay. My feet are hilariously short & squishy. Seriously, I'm 5'9", but spent my pre-children life wearing size 6 shoes.

I'll have to think about the name thing...some thoughts are swirling.

...and as you hurried upstairs, you remembered to shut the car door, riiiiight?!?

My husband made me take a picture of my feet this week because my toenail polish is totally chipping, and it chipped in a very strange pattern on my big toes. But, do you think that would be utterly disgusting to post? I do have some new favorite shoes. So, that might be less horrifying. I'll have to think about it. :) This is a fun idea, Lelly!

On your toes Tuesday. Love it. I will be putting my thinking cap on. I think it will be fun to have a day set aside for certain things. It makes the journaling more interesting. I love the idea of having a topic set aside for Tuesday. Thanks for the challenge :)

I can definitely do something feet related, and I will try to think of a new name for what we're doing.

Thanks for giving us a theme! I'd be seriously hard-pressed for ideas if I had to do my face each week...

Amy said...

the car door?!...why, of course!
