We are, as you may have noticed from our sidebar, deeply devoted users of Flickr. And one of the projects we’ve fallen into over there, thanks to our friend Elizabeth’s own Flickr obsession, is Project 365. We’ve been diligently 365ing over at Flickr for about a year and a half now, and even diligently 365ed at IPB this past summer when we were finishing up our first year. This all seemed fine, right up until Sarah started her own Flickr-less 365 over at The Fair View. Now we’re all like, “Dude, even though we’re posting at Flickr, it’s not like everyone in the world is looking at our pictures. And everyone probably wants to see them, so let’s get all bloggy about it!” Because everyone in the world totally reads IPB Living. Anyway, we’re planning now to post a weekly update of 365s, so you can revel in the photographic evidence of every week in our lives. Consider it our gift to you, reader.

The reason for all our bread baking of late? A concerted effort to become more sandwichy. Here, Pookie takes a stab at enjoying a PB&J. It went pretty well, all things considered.

I didn’t find ribbon at the sewing center, but I did find some too-orange trim. — Pk.

I’ve been on the lookout for signs or billboards to take pictures of for Scavenger Hunt 101. I’ve seen some good choices, but I decided "Men’s Undetectable Hairpieces Sold and Serviced" was the winner. This sign isn’t in the world’s greatest location so I got up super early so I could get there before things got too busy. I freaked out the whole drive there and then freaked out even more when I got there because there were other cars in the tiny parking lot. But being the brave soul I am (riiiight) I got right out and snapped some shots.
Then I hightailed it out of there, sweating bullets! — Pookie

I vowed this morning that I wouldn’t take pictures of the sunrise on my walk to work, because that’s all I ever take pictures of anymore. But then the sunrise stymied me by being utterly gorgeous. Joke’s on me. –Schn.

Last weekend I finished "Deer City" but it was only today that I was able to get a nice sunshine-y photo shoot of it. It’s not a very imaginative project, since I just used the pattern that was designed to sell Joel Dewberry’s "Deer Valley" line. I had seen it in pictures from Spring Market and had fallen into deep smit with it. Piecing the circles was fun (it’s probably a lot less fun if you’re using a machine instead of hand-piecing) and the entire project was shockingly easy and quick. — Pookie

Today we made a prototype of a top-secret project for IPB. Here’s a sneak peek!
