It's Self Portrait week over at I Heart Faces!! Is it strange to say that I take a lot of self portraits? Well I AM a scrapbook artist...one who believes that it's equally important to record myself in my scrapbooks as it is everything else. Whenever I ask someone to take my picture for me, it rarely comes out nice, so I listened to the old adage, If you want something done right (or at least the way I want it done)...
I had a couple of pictures in the running for this post, but decided to go with this one because it tells a lot about me. My hair is braided and I have on short sleeves, which means that the weather is nice. I'm also wearing my signature style hoop earrings and one of my favorite necklaces. Although I can't see the necklace in it's entirety, the chain reminds me of what it looks like. The minimal make-up reminds me that I am a mom who no longer has the time (or energy) to get all "fancified".
Anyone else looking at this photo could probably guess that I had the chicken pox in my lifetime, thanks to the pock mark left between my eye brows and that I'm married. I guess it's right what they say...a picture is worth a thousand words.
I like the way half of my face is lit while the other half is in the shadow. Kind of adds a little mystery to me. Of course anyone who know me knows that I'm a what you see is what you get kind of gal. LOL!
So this is my entry for this week. Enjoy!
