One Community: November

onecommunity-nonamesOne Community is a monthly photo project in which participants photograph their lives and communities with a theme in mind. The theme varies by month. The goal is to both showcase similarities and differences in our communities worldwide – and bring us all closer together in understanding through art. Colleen from Under a Red Roof chose the words for November. They are: Gratitude, Fun, Blue and Home.

Gratitude.  I know it’s cheesy, but it’s true.  I really am thankful to have these three cute guys in my life.


Fun.  An arts group in Springfield recently “yarn-bombed” a famous sculpture outside our art museum.  I hope you’ll forgive the multiple photos — but they were clearly having fun when they put this together!





Blue.  I struggled with what to use as my “blue” photo for the month, but I figured this is supposed to reflect our everyday life, so I took a picture of the blue thing is with me almost all the time — my blue Camelbak water bottle.


Home.  We are having some of the most spectacular fall colors this year in the Ozarks that I can ever remember seeing.  I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to photograph the beautiful trees that I see every time I look out my kitchen window into my backyard.

  1. What a super fun project and what a cool pictures! I love them all but the yarn ones are amazing! Imagine how long it must have taken to do that?! I would love to participate in the One Community project. Do I have all month? And do I post at your blog? Thanks!

    • The linkup is open for a week — post your pics in your blog then add your link here at the bottom of this page. I’ll send you an email in about a week letting you know next month’s theme words. The linkup is on the 5th of every month. Yay! I’m excited for you to join us!

  2. Awww, love the picture of your three guys decked out in Mizzou gear.

    We’re seeing great fall color here, too. For the past few years, it hasn’t been anything to write home about, so I didn’t have high hopes for this fall. It’s been a very pleasant surprise!

    That yarn-covered sculpture is awesome!

    I thought about taking a photo of my blue water bottle for that prompt, too, but went with another.

    • Yes, I’m pretty sure they had permission. They advertised for local knitters and crocheters to make squares and bring them one weekend to attach them to the sculpture.

    • My son loves his Camelbak bottle, and I love that it doesn’t leak! I will warn you that everywhere I’ve seen them, there are about 6 designs for girls and just 1 for boys.

    • The link up is open for five more days still — it’s not too late! You can go snap a bunch of pics in a single afternoon (confession — I’ve done it!) or look through pics you’ve taken somewhat recently that fit the themes. I’d love for you to join us!

    • I think the whole yarn bombing thing started as a form of crafty graffiti (this was done with permission). Either way, it’s pretty funny to see something so large covered in knitting!
