I joined the Art House Co-op's chronicle project a month ago.
The project challenged artists to document a single day in their lives and share it with the community.
It could be in images or words - any medium as long as it could be folded flat into a rectangle no greater than 4"x6".
The deadline to mail it was today.
I had a month to do this.
I had ZERO ideas.
Two weeks ago I followed the cats around the house taking instagram photos every 20 minutes.
Turns out the cats are REALLY boring.

I'd pretty much decided to bail.
It was a free project.
It wasn't a swap.
No one was really waiting for my piece or would be heartbroken not to receive it.
I could just not submit something.
But I couldn't live with myself.
So all day yesterday I took pictures of my feet with my iPhone.
This morning I printed them on an 8"x8" piece of photo paper and did some fancy folding to turn it into a pop-out 4"x6"card.
and I got it to the post office by 10:00AM.
Neither the concept nor the pictures are all that exciting.
but the pop-out is pretty cool.
Here's what it looks like when it's flat.
Here's what it looks like as you open it:
