iheartfaces Photo Challenge - Self Portrait



Here's me playing Santa's helper - a role I play well this time of year!  If you look closely, you can see my living room.  It contains dupioni silk drapes, a grand piano and a hockey table!  This room encompasses my life as I see it - a juxtaposition of a vision, a past, and a reality (i.e. a husband, four kids and a big dog!)  I wouldn't have it any other way.  I hope I'm also instilling in my family the true meaning of Christmas.  As often as not, however, they are the ones teaching me!

Initially, I was going to skip this week's iheartfaces challenge - Self Portraits - because, if you've noticed, I don't even have my face anywhere on my blog!  My type A personality kicked in, however.  I just didn't want to miss a week!

I thought about using my yard ball again and try to achieve this :) You did a great job! So creative and cute with the Santa hat :)
Great minds think alike! I fluked out and kept trying to capture close-ups of our tree WITHOUT my reflection in the ornaments (and even the beads!)... when I remembered the IHF theme this week!! Ta-da! Awesome entry! :)

I was just playing around with the same thing! Although I didn't have a tripod-- that would make it much easier! Love it!

I get these shots on accident, maybe I should think about taking more of them on purpose! Lovely.

We had the same idea! I love ornament reflections!

How fun! As I was trimming the tree last night I thought of trying this, but I had already delayed our work with the lights pic :) I may have to try this later though.
Very creative!!! :) LOVE IT!
