A Journey of Happy Surprises

Made it. XD

Thank you. I know I said it with yesterday's shot but I can never say it enough. Thank you. Your constant and generous support has made a difference. Thank you.

The year I have spent on this project has been an eventful and unforgettable one. I have learned so much. I have met fabulously talented people on 365. I have enjoyed seeing your wonderful shots. Your heartwarming stories made me misty-eyed, made me smile, made me realize we all have more in common than we think.

My final upload is something of an anti-climax, isn't it? Heh. Just a wordle ( go to www.wordle.net and have fun ) and thumbnails. It's colourful though. I love colourful things!

I can say that I hope to return but I cannot say that I will. Too many hobbies, too little time! I want to take this opportunity to wish you a life journey filled with love, laughter and many happy surprises. Keep shooting. And if you see a cute jumping spider, say hi, and take its picture. 8D

Livia,
you have been an constant inspiration to me, and I've loved following your photographic journey this past year, especially your incredible macro shots!

I hope you take a moment to stop by every now and then, just to say "Hi"! Congratulations on this monumental accomplishment!

Thank you Livia for sharing part of your year with me. I may have only discovered your work recently, but I have thoroughly enjoyed looking back over your project. I hope you have fun with whatever hobbies you follow next, and it would be nice if you could pop back and see us all occasionally! Well done on completing your year!

Livia - this is fantastic! I love all or your words and then your favorite shots surrounding them. Thank you for your wonderful shots and all of your encouraging comments on my own work. I have added a jumping spider to my bucket list, thanks to you! Blessings to you on your new hobbies and I hope that you pop in everyone once in a while.

Bat balls. I had forgotten about the drama with the bat balls.

Congratulations on your huge accomplishment. I enjoyed the beauty of every single shot you posted. You are a fabulous photographer and could make the mundane beautiful. I hope to see you back here, but if not, I'm glad I got to follow your journey this year.
posted November 19th, 2012  
I think the bat balls was one of the first shots I saw. So hilarious.

I have to thank you for your wonderful inspiration. I kept hoping that through the months I have followed you some of that creativity would rub off ; )

And if I ever see a jumping spider, I will be sure and say hi--AFTER I SCREAM LIKE A GIRL!!!
posted November 19th, 2012  
congratulations! i still cringe when i think of myself FAV'g insects, but i did because your shots were truly spectacular! :-) good luck to you, it was a blast! :-)

It's been a pleasure to follow you! Love your macros, jumping spiders and the bat balls :))) I hope you will keep shooting and I would be very happy, if you treated us with your fab photos every once in a while!

I'm really going to miss your work, Livia :( That said, I can't wait for Aug 10, 2013, so I can get back to life, albeit as a much better photographer for the journey.
Bon voyage.

So beautifully expressed, Livia, and your final photo is incredibly awesome. Tears are welling up in my eyes as I write this! Honest! I really do understand your situation. I am much the same....I have so many hobbies & interests and not enough time to enjoy them at their fullest and best. Most likely I will be doing the same come April when year 2 is complete. But, I really do hope you come back to visit once in a while. I am going to miss your spiders, your dry wit , your narratives, your unique shots & all the creative inspiration you provide. Hope you keep it all on here so I can go back and reminisce once in a while ;-) I know you don't like hugs, Livia but I will give you a huge parting cyberhug just the same. Take care and God bless. xo

Congratulations Livia, I have said it before and I will say it again you are the Macro Queen.
posted November 19th, 2012  
Congratulations! Your talent and creativity are so inspiring! I do hope that will grace us with a photo from time to time of whatever you are working on, or if you see something funny and want to share your humor, or if a little jumping spider just demands you take his portrait... or even if you just miss us. I will certainly miss your daily posts, unless you change your mind... and that is a woman's prerogative, you know! I'd love to see you continue!

I'm posting this a little after the fact. I think you completed your project while I was still out of power from Sandy. It's been so much fun viewing your excellent photos of such a wide range of subjects, but of course, I will always remember you for your spiders! If not for you, I might never have taken a picture of one! I do hope you will enjoy the new projects you are starting and once you've gotten them out of your system, you'll be back (hehe- sort of kidding!). I know your creativity will always have you exploring new things, so I'm not worried about wishing you a good journey- but I do hope it's pleasant and fun and has you discovering even more things in the world around you. Congratulations!!

Hey Livia! Don't know how I missed this one the first time around -- I was missing your pics so I went searching for you! So thrilled to know that you've completed your project, congratulations! It's been a joy and a privilege to follow and be followed by you. Thank you for all your encouragement and kind words over the past year. I have just adored your photos. Not many people can make spiders and ants look adorable! :D You are an inspiration to us all, Livia. Wishing you the very best for 2013 and in all your future endeavours! :)

Thank you dear Livia. Not only for you lovely critics on my work , but and above all you`ve taken your time to watch it and to write it me. You`ve made my day to let me know you`re still there and being interested. I often wander how you are doing and how it`s goes with you and you other hobby.
When I see all those comments you get I can understand that it will be to much to replay every day on those ( sometimes I`ve problems with that too It take much time ) I hope you`re doing well and we keep the connection. Now and than . And maybe show us what you are doing/making/creating now

So many have gone and quite a few have come back. After my first year that took longer than I planned to finish but I did, I slowed down and still stay a bit slowed down. Have become friends with so many on here and wish I had followed you closer but loved your photos. Catherine posted a green spoon for St. Patrick's Day today and she had been gone for quite a while after her year. Missed her and I think she will be back for some time now. You taught us a lot and left us a wonderful legacy to follow and grow with. Thank you for that.
