Learning to take better pictures


So I haven't taken too many pictures over the last few years.  I have a big ol' expensive camera and lenses but my pictures turn out like ..... crap ...  I just figured I might as well just take crappy pictures with my iPhone rather than lug around this big camera and get the same crappy result. Well I'm tired of having "crappy memories" so in order to have "good memories"  I need good pictures.  That's my reasoning anyway... So, a new goal I made for myself this year is to take more ...

Project Life Is Underway!


Wow, It's been a week since I last logged on?  I really wanted to do better than that! I've started organizing my photos and placing them in the pockets.  My Stampin' up supplies also arrived last Friday so I've been anxious to dig in and start using them. I am very happy with how my title page turned out. I just went simple.  I put glitter on my family letters, stamped 2015 and voila done like dinner. I've been having a hard time getting inspired.  So although I haven't ... [ Read More ]

Checking My Ego At The Door

nice day

Happy Wednesday Everyone, Kids are back in school and life is good! But really, I do miss them, but I also missed "me"  time.

I "ran" Monday and Today and went to Centergy on Tuesday.  Three day winning streak!!! Go me! With running I've had to check my ego at the door a little. I've ... [ Read More ]

Planning 2015…. I’m having a hard time

Snowy morning

We woke up to the sound of rain, but within a few minutes of waking the street looked like this. The kids may just get lucky and have a snow day tomorrow?  I decided it would be a good day to stay in my PJ's and enjoy a lazy Sunday. So I've been trying to plan my project 52 album a little, and trying to decide on the base products I would like to use. I've been visiting my local scrapbook store and hobby shops, trying to decided what I want to commit to, but I've been having a problem ... [ Read More ]

Good Morning and Happy 2015


Happy 2015! We had a fondue and didn't burn down the house!  Win #1 for 2015!   The way I see it, we can only go up from here right?  Its's been a crappy few years and each year I am hopeful that for some reason because the calendar changed the clock struck midnight, somehow, those changes will change everything in my life.  Well, let me tell you I am no longer going to be THAT naive.  This year all I am hoping for is a few more happy days than sad days, a few more loving ...
