i spy blr

What happened on June, 26 1996? I graduated high school in the Green Mountain State. I think that’s the last time I ever saw a guy named Jake Hill until he popped up on my Facebook page a couple weeks ago with a “Saw this today, thought of you!”

License Plate BLR

Jake~

You are totally awesome…thanks! Love this. Hope life has been good to you since high school. Thanks for keeping an eye out for the Blue Lollipop Road!

Who else has got a picture for me?

365 days of blue lollipop road; day 42

2.11.14

Holy moses these southern winter storms just won’t stop. The crazy part is how unprepared this part of the country is. I have to admit, being a Vermonter, It’s seriously entertaining watching the mad scramble freak out of the news, the schools, the stores, the peeps, the everything down here with the threat of a few inches of the white stuff. On the flip side, being a Vermonter I keep thinking- um, didn’t I move out of that wintery state for a reason? Where’s my North carolina sunshine?!

Thankfully I have awesome readers who warm me up with photos of things like their hot coffee and fire places! Today’s BLR from Grace:

How cozy does that look? I wish I was sitting in front of that fire all snuggled up right now…

This is where Grace found her Blue Lollipop Road today. Where did you find yours?

UPS delivery from California today! A piece of art, made by an old Vermont high school friend who now lives in L.A, just for BLR 365:

How totally awesome is this, and how perfect for Blue Lollipop Road?

I’m not the biggest fan of the cold weather (by that I mean, if I never had to wear anything but flip-flops and sundresses ever again in my life I’d be happy) so, I haven’t necessarily been run, run, running out to find snow and ice to make any of my own etches on windshields this winter during the Polar Vortex. Fortunately a friend in Colorado who is much more brave with snow than me, sent this submission today:

BLR love in the chilly west, while I enjoyed a Monday of 60 degree and sunny temps. in the east.

Thanks David!

This is what my road looks like today. What’s happening on yours?

One of today’s BLR’s is by far my favorite of the first 25 days of this project. Check out this submission, by Sydney, Ema, & Nathaniel (left to right) from Louisiana:

How cool is this pic, made from the Comic Book! iPad app?! Love it. Gives me an idea for another BLR creation with people for later. (Yes, that means you’ll have to stay tuned to see what I come up with. I might just recruit you to be a part of it!)

So not only did these super awesome kids pose for this photo, but they sent 2 others too! Sydney & Ema made this one out of bottle caps, clothes pins, and Wikki Sticks:

(I totally just had to Google “Wikki Sticks” to see what they were. I guess I’m not as cool as I thought)…and Nathaniel made this one with his toy trains:

He wanted to make sure I knew that the “R” is made up entirely of boxcars. How cute!

Thank you Sydney, Ema, & Nathaniel for my first kid submissions! Feel free to send in more BLR’s anytime. The more the merrier, so keep staying curious and crafty!

Hello submissions! We are on a roll!

This just in from a new Blue Lollipop Road reader, Grace:

Here she is!

She makes maps for a living. (Um…how awesome is that?!) She’s been stuck at her desk all day today, so she said she was happy to participate in the BLR project fun.

Here’s to getting creative, even when you might feel stuck, and to letting yourself daydream about anything and everything during the middle of a work day.

Thanks Grace!

*Technical difficulties yesterday. (Boo!) Day 22’s post is coming in far after midnight, so I’m doubling up today. (There’s a very good chance no one out there even pays attention to the time/date stamp on these posts, but I do, so I’m calling myself out here:)

Day 22 of BLR 365 is a submission from a chef friend in Virginia:

…before she started chopping for dinner. Mmm! Comfort food on cold days = yummy!
