Self-Portrait: Blogtoberfest Challenge

Karin from Sum of Mum had an idea for a blogtoberfest challenge, and so tinniegirl (who hosts blogtober) has declared today self-portrait day!

I have hundreds of photos of myself on facebook, yet when I heard about this challenge, the first photo that popped into my head was this one:

Kathy will stare you down and annihilate you.
That photo was taken on the same day as the photo from Friday's post, where I'm pretending to be asleep and using my cat as a pillow. This photo was also taken that day:

Kathy and Dougal. This photo makes my face look rounder than it is.
Here's one of me up in Cradle Mountain National Park. The big blob of water is Dove Lake. Not a SELF-portrait, but one of my favourite photos of myself.

Here is a silly one of me, taken with photobooth. Notice my gorgeous fingernails. Up until a year ago I used to bite them constantly. 

These are some I had fun editing. I use the one on the right for most user pics on sites such as Ravelry.

And I think that's enough with the self-portraits!

Visit tinniegirl to see who else participated in the challenge - I've already found a few new blogs I love, and I'm sure you'll find at least a few you love as well!
