Unexpected/Order Interpretations

Well I'm late posting the collage and results from Unexpected/Order, mainly because we had a new grandchild born Saturday night and I've been a little tied up.  Mother, father, and daughter are all fine and back home now.  Big brother hasn't quite figured this out yet, but he is definitely excited. 

Only Miss Mouse and I (Eeyore) had entries this time, but at least she had enough photos I could make a decent collage.  Thanks Miss Mouse, or it would've been a new solitaire game.  If I missed someone's, let me know.

Because of the holidays and everyone's busy schedule, I have decided to put off further challenges until after the first of the year.   Like I said last week, that challenge will be Coffee/Tea, and I'm going to make it due on January 9, 2011.  I will post the challenge the week before to remind everyone.

Perhaps last week's challenge, Cabernet / Cabinet, was a little challenging, since we only had three interpretations, but I guess that's what a challenge is, and I like them all. If you do too, leave them a comment a let them know. Our interpretations came from Diane, Jack, and Larry. If I missed yours, leave a comment and I'll add it in.

Savory / Sweet Interpretations

Our challenge for the last couple of weeks was Savory / Sweet. I expected some shots of everyone's backyard barbeque grill, or the results therefrom, but unless Maya has one very nice rotisserie in her backyard, we got none. Most of the results leaned toward the dessert, with one toward music. Good job folks, and thanks.

Organic / Chaos Interpretations

Organic/Chaos was the challenge for the last two weeks, two weeks instead of one because of a little organic chaos in my own mind the week before. We welcome ShEiLa back after a little hiatus, and a warm welcome to first time contributor Jeremy. We also had interpretations for some of our reliable contributors, Diane, Rob, and yours truly, Larry. If I missed anyone, leave a comment on this post and we'll add yours in. Thanks to all of you.

Weekly Challenge: Organic / Chaos - Another Week

I was about to post the results for Organic/Chaos (actually I had already put it up) when I noticed that I had accidentally ended that challenge on June 6 instead of May 30 (see below). So I deleted it. I do not remember thinking that since it is a holiday weekend I would allow another week, but hey, I did it by mistake.

So, all of you who did not get in an interpretation by yesterday, you've got a reprieve until next week, and both of those who did, thanks. I'll save them until next week.

Brilliant / Hidden Interpretations

Our challenge this week was Hidden/Brilliant, and I think we had some brilliant interpretations on this theme. To be honest, my first thoughts were of a sunset, and I sort of expected 6 or 7 sunsets, but of the 8 interpretations, mine was the only sunset. Very pleasantly surprised, I was. Our interpretations were from Alexa, Rob, Debi, Larry, Cathy, Forest, Diane, and a hilarious interpretation by Vivian.

Home / Town Interpretations


Home / Town was our challenge this week, and again we only had three participants, albeit some difference from last week. Our interpretations this week came from Vivian, Diane, and two from Larry, here and here. Thanks Vivian and Diane, and if I missed someone, shoot me a comment.

Private / Public Interpretations


Private/Public was the challenge this week and we had some really nice interpretations. Most involved people, engaged in relatively private activities in public places, one involved property, and one bubbles. Our interpretations came from Polly, Janet, Maya, Vivian, and me, Larry. If I missed yours, let me know and up it will go. Thanks all.
Oops! I included her painting, but forgot to include Diane in the list of contributors.

Clear / Vague Interpretations


We had another good response this week with 6 entries, and a challenge within a challenge from Rob. Our entries were from Rob, Larry, Janet, ShEiLa, Diane, and someone I haven't had the pleasure to deal with, Polly. As always, if I missed anyone, please let me know, even if I missed you because you forgot to set your clock forward and overslept this morning and just didn't get yours posted in time.

Ugly / Pretty Interpretations

We had another great response to our challenge this week.

Our entries are from Lex (welcome back again), Larry, Virginia, ShEiLa, Janet, Debi, Maya, Tash, and Vivian.

I think I got them all, but if I missed yours, let me know.

Prize / Door Interpretations


We had a wide variety of doors in response to our challenge this week, each with their own special prize attached. Well done. The responses were from Vivian, ShEiLa, Rob, Larry, Tash, Diane, and Janet, in no particular order. Virginia had a great prize door on her Paris site and I talked her into letting me enter it also. Check them all out, and be sure to note Vivian's poem about her favorite door.

If I missed anyone, let me know, and thanks for participating.

Safe / Passage Interpretations


We had a great response this week to our challenge. There were interpretations of Safe/Passage over the water, through the water, down the highway, through the air over water between cliffs, through the air from plane to ground, down a hallway and into the next life, and over ice both in vehicles and on foot. Great job! We have an interpretation from a newcomer Lex. Welcome Lex. Others include Vivian, Shutterbug, Rob, Diane, Larry, Janet, and Maya. We also had an entry from ShEiLa, but something happened to her blog over the weekend and I could not get to it to copy her entry into the collage above. Hers is the blank spot in the middle, and maybe I can add it when her blog gets fixed. In the meantime, I have included the link to her entry, and hopefully it will work and not say for invited readers only if you click on it (once her blog is fixed).

Thanks everyone. If I missed anyone, leave us a comment and we'll add you in.
ShEiLa got her new blog up and here is the link to her Safe/Passage entry.

Native / Exotic Interpretations


The challenge for this week was Native / Exotic. We had four diverse entries from Diane, Larry, Rob, and ShEiLa. Last week I posted the links to their blogs in general instead of to these entries. I decided that was okay for a week, but some of these people post a lot, and if you are searching for a particular entry more than a week later, it could require multiple paging to find it. Therefore, I'm reverting to posting links directly to the entry posts, but I would still encourage you to scroll through their other interesting posts.
Thanks to all who entered, and if you were missed or late, just leave a comment and I'll get yours up too.
I just located Vivian's post, so go check it out too.

Weekly Challenge: Native / Exotic

This week's challenge is Native / Exotic. I apopogize to the old timers here, but I just discovered that this challenge was used almost two years ago. Since everyone was warned last week this would be the challenge, I'm going to stick with it, however. I think it was tough in 2008, and it may be again. Good luck with it.

This challenge will end at 12:00 Noon CST, on February 7, 2010, first Sunday of the month.

Remember, anyone can join! Just post your entries--as few or as many as you'd like--on your blog and leave us a comment here. All media are welcome--paintings, photography, collages, drawings, sculpture, poetry, whatever you'd like.

And as a teaser, the challenge for the following week will be: Safe / Passage.

Merge / Diverge Interpretations


This week we have some interesting interpretations of our challenge, Merge/Diverge. I thought of several ways to go with it, and so did these folks. Our entries are from Tash, Larry, Maya, Janet, and Diane. This week I've posted the links to their web sites containing their 2 Things Challenge entry, instead of linking directly to the entry. In some cases you may have to scroll down to get to the entry posts, but believe me, it's worth looking at some of their other stuff.


Thanks to those who participated, and if I missed you, or you are just late, let me know and I'll put yours up too.

The challenge last week was Fire / Water, and the group really stepped it up. We went from a low of 3 entries a couple of weeks ago to 9 entries so far this week. Thanks to all who participated, and if you'd like to join in the fun, go ahead. This week we had entries from Shutterbug, Janet, Larry, Carolyn, Vivian, Tash, Maya, ShEiLa, and Diane.

We also had one comment from Mohamed about the concept of Push / Pull in advertising. You can visit his sites here, here, and here. I hope you enjoy the entries as much as I do, and can contribute your own soon.
