As promised, I started taking some self-portraits. Now, I typically live my days in ponytails, bare-faced, no jewelry, and pretty basic clothing. My kids don't care if I did my hair today, so neither do I. Should I? Probably. So I've been trying to make more of an effort to make myself look like I leave the house once in a while. This weekend I had one of those days where I felt like taking a little time for myself. Granted it was only about 3 minutes longer than normal, but I need quick. And the quicker I can look nice, the more I'm apt to do it more often. I guess it should be a sign that mama needs to spend some time on herself when both kids noticed how different I looked. Since I took the time to change out of my ponytail, I figured I should try to get some pictures. I just took some quick arms-length shots while Mr. R was watching tv. I'm certainly not ready for an audience yet.
I did very minimal editing. I'm still working on learning GIMP, and haven't decided to part with the measly $20 for the extra features on Picnik yet, so I was limited in what I could do; not that I want to change so much that it wouldn't be me anymore. So? How did I do for my first selfie?
