Why never you?

People ask me why there are never photos of me here.

Probably because I am always the one with the camera in my hand.



And taking a photo of yourself is hard. Poor lighting in the bathroom mirror. Hence the black and white. No real way to focus . . . hence the blur.



And I rarely act natural when a camera is pointed my way.



My FaceBook photo was another miserable self portrait. Taken many months ago. Dang my hair was short!



Anyway, whatever. This is me.

I like this idea. Maybe have a series where everyone has to post a photo of themselves? There are so many blogs that I read, and I actually have no idea what the person looks like. How fun! :)

Oh! It is so cool to see your face :) Your photos are great even if we rarely like pictures of ourself... in fact I should talk for myself, I rarely like pictures of me!!!
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day!

Trudi said...

I hate having my photo taken! So its always a treat to put a face to the name and the person whose life we are reading and getting to know all about. Thankyou for sharing!

Beth said...

Your bathroom is awesome! And you crack me up! But it is nice to put a face to the person we all seem to know. And of course love!

Amy - Park City Girl said...

Hi Dana! I'm waving at you :) Your hair has grown lots since you last put a pic up here! cuteness isn't just for the puppies - lol

Sarah Pead said...

So there's a face I can put your thoughts to. I've heard your voice, own your beautiful sewing work, and even seen your hand-writing. But it's rare to see your face.

You're simply beautiful inside and out! :)

Kimberly said...

Awww, and a lovely you it is! Thanks for sharing!

Purple Quilter Queen said...

Fun! I hate pictures of me too. I'm ALWAYS behind the camera in our family.

Bloggy Mama said...

You're cute. I love the one with your tongue sticking out :P I added you on fb. Wanna be my friend?

Zarina said...

I know what you mean. And even the ones that other take, thinks its a portrait when I only want to show the pants that me n the little people are wearing.

Erin said...

You are just too stinkin' cute. =) I can tell you are just full of life. I'm going to add you as a FB friend, too, so I can see your other picture.

Rebecca Maples said...

Elissa said...

frankly, i'm disappointed cuz i SO wanted to see you with *that* hair ;-) but i'll settle for beautiful, zany you. (and for a peek into your "i want to go to there" bathroom.... love it!)

Dena said...

Now if this was a telephone, we'd all be talking about whether your voice matches your appearance. LOL

Penzey's Spices is featuring some of my recipes in their upcoming holiday catalog and they thought I'd have some pictures of me cooking or sitting at the table with our guests... I explained to her since I'm the one who is always behind the camera, you won't find very many pictures of me. She didn't quite understand.

Kim said...

I would have known you anywhere :0)......yes I agree with the others you are as beautiful as your girls. thanks for the fun post....don't we all hate pictures of ourselves though?

Happy sewing Dana you little cutie pie!

In the several years I've been reading your blog, I've never seen you!

And you're so pretty!

I was getting told the same thing a lot, so lately I've been putting lots of pictures of myself on my blog. Ick. I hate it, but whatever.

I keep talking about my *imaginary* (ie: blog) friends. It's def. good to have a face to go with the friendship!

I hate myself in pictures lately...too tired, too blah.

Paula Prass said...

I am so visual, it's nice to finally see your face. I don't do good with having my picture taken, so this would be a good experiment for me to try. xoxo

Mountain Mama (Wesley Jeanne) said...

Hi you. You look terrific!
I've had the luxury of seeing you in person so I know how beautiful you are, but it's good to see you showing your face around here.

That said, I have the same issues with posting my photo on my blog. Well, those and my massive insecurities.

The Young Ones said...

Dana! So good to see your face! You are so inpiring! I love your photos on the last few posts. Lately the only one taking pics of me is my 5 year old son. He loves it, and the pics aren't terrible. If I have time I will post them. You look great though! -Tonya

Susan/FlossieBlossoms said...

Hey - It's MY Dana! So good to see you finally, you're adorable and look like so much fun to hang out with. I'm glad to know that if I ever bumped into you now, I'd know just who it was that I knocked over!

Your FMF blocks are looking GREAT!
