I was inspired to create 365 Days of Pugs by my friend Toby. His friend Noah Scalin wrote a book called: 365: A Daily Creativity Journal, Make Something Everyday and Change Your Life! I enjoyed looking at and reading Toby’s projects throughout 2011, and kept thinking about what I would have done for that day. Most of the ideas involved my pug, Eloise, or pugs in general. (Yes, they are a bit of an obsession . . . but any pug owner will empathize. . . ) So, the plan is to base all 365 days of projects on pugs in some way, shape, or form.
Now that 2012 is over and 365 Days of Pugs is complete, 2013 brings a new project. I’m going try WordPress’s Weekly Photo Challenge. Each participant creates a photo to illustrate the weekly theme. The intention is to make many photos pug- or Eloise-related, but to give her – and me- a break from daily projects.
Near the end of 2014, Eloise crossed the rainbow bridge. The goal for 2014 is to continue to participate in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenges; I’m on the lookout for a successor pug who enjoys being in front of a camera as much as Eloise.
