Last night while I was being stubborn (and shivering) by refusing to turn on my furnace for the first time this season, I decided to do a Flickr search for “warmth”. I picked my favorite images from the bunch and created this mosaic. I guess you could call it sensory visualization. “I’m NOT freezing. I’m NOT freezing.”

Photo credits:

1. Warmth of the Sun, 2. i’ve always liked the time before dawn because there’s no one around to remind me who i’m supposed to be, so it’s easier to remember who i am, 3. Cheon_C_PHT103_Warmth_1, 4. no longer a source of warmth for anyone, 5. warmth, 6. Seeking warmth, 7. Warmth, 8. Warmth, 9. Warmth ., 10. Warmth in wilderness !, 11. warmth., 12. Warmth

Apparently I was unsuccessful in my exercise because today I fired up the furnace. After all, wearing a winter hat indoors is not my thing.

This post is courtesy of the girls over at the SCOOP (and they got it via Somewhere in Middle America and they got it from wonderful one times one). So I’m continuing this great chain:

Here’s the deal… you answer the following 12 questions about yourself (my answers are in parentheses after each question). Next, you do a search for each of your answers on Flickr and pick your favorite one from the first page of results (although I cheated a couple of times and went to the 2nd or 3rd page if I didn’t like anything). Next, enter the URL of each photo into Mosaic Maker (3 columns, 4 rows). Here’s my mosaic.

1. What is your first name? (carrie)

2. What is your favorite food? (cheese)

3. What high school did you attend? (fairport high school)

4. What is your favorite color? (blue)

5. Who is your celebrity crush? (ryan gosling)

6. Favorite drink? (chai)

7. Dream vacation? (france)

8. Favorite dessert? (jeni’s ice cream)

9. What do you want to be when you grow up? (a shop owner)

10. What do you love most in life? (being creative)

11. One word to describe you? (clever)

12. Your Flickr name? (clk221)

Fun, right? Do your own; it’s a great procrastination tool.
