@inertie @titirez76 Thanks for joining Inertia and Anita! I hope this will be fun. It was definitely fun to pick out all the words!!

I have never done a month long project, but it looks like fun! I think I will join in too.

nice idea...
i would like to try it..
it's my b'day on "April fool's Day" so the day on fool born will try to complete this challenge....
posted March 28th, 2012
@svenskaflicka Good for you Claire! It's a lot of fun and you can take the pictures which ever way you choose so there's a lot of creativity. And when you feel your stuck, you always have a substitute word or wild card to fall back on. Most of all- just enjoy it and have fun!
@tandel Well that's a great way to celebrate your birthday Rahul! Wishing you a happy day (a little early) and hope you enjoy your month long celebration on the A Challenge!
posted March 29th, 2012
this is something I might try for next month, and good idea to have swap-out words b/c I have no idea how I would photograph some of those things listed above. thanks for the info!
posted March 29th, 2012
@sfeldphotos I'm glad you'll be joining in Sam! You are a very bright young man. I think you'll be up for the challenge. You can always ask your photography club friends to help you with ideas too. I know you're going to like April 1- it's one of your favorite things to shoot- ABSTRACT!!

@olivetreeann Help me out. How am i supposed to post to this project? I need some direction, 'cause im just a little slow. Is there a special link or something i shold post to? Help! I think i would like to do this one ... thanks.
posted March 29th, 2012
This sounds wonderful fun - I'm going to save it and hope to try it another month... after my 'alphabet hunt' I feel I need freedom to stretch my camera's wings again.
I shall be interested to follow the tag and see what you get up to!
posted March 29th, 2012
love a good challenge. i'm comitted to another already though ("sisterschallenge"). i like the idea. it would be fun to do Ms in may...
posted March 29th, 2012
@ggshearron Hi Glover! No trouble at all- you take a photo a day as you usually do using the daily words as a part of your shot. When you are uploading you'll see a line where you can fill in "tags". Enter the words aprilachallenge on that line. This registers your photo so to speak. That way when someone pulls down the browse menu and clicks on "By Tag" they can enter those words and all the photos of the people who have participated in this challenge will pop on to the screen. To upload a picture on this discussion thread (which is optional), pull up the picture, and on the right hand column you'll see a box that says "share". Highlight the information in that box, by right clicking your mouse on the info so that it is highlighted in blue, then left click your mouse and in the options box that appears, click on copy. Go back to the home page, pull up this discussion thread, and scroll down to the comment box and left click paste. Your photo info will appear in the comment box. Then click the comment button and your photo will post on the discussion thread. I hope that makes sense- I'm not 100% fluent in computer-speak! And I'm always hoping that I've remembered all the steps! I'll be looking forward to seeing your photos!
posted March 29th, 2012
@filsie65 Thanks Phil- wish you were joining us, but I know how you feel. I always think I'll pass on the next one, but actually I find this kind a little less restricting because you can interpret many of the words whatever way you choose. Enjoy your break! Your alphabet was well done!!
@leigh7900 Thanks Leigh! I never even saw the sister challenge posted! Sounds interesting. Anyone can set up a challenge, so you could easily post an M challenge in May. For this one, all I did was pull the dictionary off the shelf and pick out an assortment of different words that began with A. Have fun with your sister challenge!
posted March 29th, 2012
Ann, this is seems difficult, but I might be up for it...I can think of a few selfies in these words...thanks for the "inspiration"!
posted March 29th, 2012
@httpgeffed I know you can do it Colleen! You're very creative- and there are always the sub words and wild card, just in case!
posted March 31st, 2012
I'm in too :) Might have to tweak a few of those words (no artichokes, armchairs or asparagus around here :) ) but maybe I'll get creative...
posted March 31st, 2012
@alia_801 Glad you're in!! And as far as armchairs etc. that's what the subs are for- and there's always the market! I think the security people are used to seeing me taking pictures of stuff now!
posted March 31st, 2012
how many wild cards are we allowed? and how many can we swap with the other words?
posted April 1st, 2012
@titirez76 Hi Anita! Sorry for the slight delay in my reply. I've been at a family gathering all day. There are 6 words at the end of the dated list that you can swap out at any time/on any date and one wild card to be used in the same way. The swap out words are fairly common - like apple or open-ended (I hope!)- like action and the wild card is "your choice" of any A word that you can come up with (for example, let's say your best friend is named Amanda and you take her picture for the wild card because Amanda begins with A). So let's say you're not a baker, so there's no All-spice in your cupboard. You could take a shot of an apple and put that in there instead. But you know what- I am not a stickler on these things. It's supposed to be fun, so as long as you put up an A shot, it's ok. But it is fun to try to get the word. My first letter challenge was last August and it was all about S. I didn't think I would be able to do it, but I did- and it was fun. So make sure you're having fun. That's first and foremost. I hope that answers your question.
posted April 1st, 2012
It does answer, thanks .

@olivetreeann These are so cool... I love clay mugs! Are they hand-thrown? Do you know the artist?Is it you?
posted April 22nd, 2012
@marilyn Thank you Marilyn. Yes, they are all hand-thrown but not by me. Here's the run down: the top center with green handle and white dots was purchased in Israel from a well-known ceramicist there. The next two to the right were made by a potter I knew in NJ. I discovered her from a mailing she sent out and for a few years gave myself one of her mugs for Christmas. The bottom center came from a ceramics shop in Colorado near Red Rocks. The brown mug with white dots on the left was bought at a craft fair ages ago- early 80's! And the top left mug was a gift from my daughter-in-law and is my favorite mug for tea. I have a few more, but these made the best picture, and I do love the story that goes with each one.

Wow! I definitely thought I'd be using a substitute word today- but then I remember Jeff had one pair of argyle socks (that were a freebie and he never wears!!).

@photodreamm Wow- is that a program you have? I think that might be a bit scary to see what aging will do. It's bad enough facing it when it truly happens! lol Cool shot.

@olivetreeann hehehe nope those are my moms feet if you look close we have different but alike flip flops on....i won't mention to her you think her feet are scary ! Lmbo

@photodreamm Oh no! I meant that if you had a photo program that could speed up the aging process that that was scary!! lol

My wildcard pick since I couldn't find any artichokes, was "attention" which this cat very much sought out, as well as this attentive pose I finally caught her in.

Aggie - this one took awhile. Really thought I'd have an easier time finding marbles to work with.

Thanks Ann. Still have a little more catch-up posts to do, but that will have to wait until after our handbell concert this evening...or tomorrow.

@pngmeri I love the handbells! My mother and sisters were all in hand bell choirs, while I was in college.
