NO Papercrafting, NO Scrapbooking, NO Cardmaking but, I have been busy…
**Read below for the reason I posted these pics!
I haven’t been getting any crafting done at all lately, it’s been busy & now with the kid’s almost finished school it’s only going to get busier for me trying to keep them busy! The weather has been really sucky here, lots of rain, we have been running to the park any chance we can get in between thunderstorms, the parks are so wet & flooded with puddles that the kid’s can’t help but gravitate to the mud puddles!
We have had lots of exciting things going on here. I have been lucky enough to see a few good movies lately at home & at the movie theatre, last night I went & saw Iron Man.
This movie was fantastic, a really great come back for Robert Downey Jr. This movie is getting rave reviews. I also saw The Sex & the City Movie.
Another fantastic movie, the 4 year wait was so worth it. I laughed so hard I was crying!
We also just purchased a Canon Rebel XTi so I have been doing ALOT of “Photowalking” around the neighborhood taking pictures of anything & everything! We have purchased a few books recommended to us by a friend & also, I found a book all about the Rebel called Digital Rebel XTi/400D Digital Field Guide by Charlotte K. Lowrie at Costco for $11.99.
This is a great book for me because I need to understand the camera before I can attempt to understand anything else like understanding exposure & all that other fun stuff & I have also been reading the manual, I am just trying to understand everything the best I can & of course practice, practice, practice. I have added some of the pics that my hubby & I have been taking, some of MY fav’s! Some of these pics didn’t need any “help” thru Photoshop, I didn’t think they did anyways! Can you “spot” the ladybug in the first pic??? The camera I was using before is a Kodak Z740, it took “okay” pics but, nothing like this, I would never have been able to get the detail in these pics with my old camera, of course the Kodak is still working fine & if I need a “smaller” camera or another camera for whatever reason I can always use that one.
and last but not least we have FINALLY been able to get our hands on the Wii Fit, I found out yesterday that our Superstore was going to have them in this AM, so I told my hubby they opened at 7AM & he went & he was able to get 1 of the 12 they had this AM, it’s ALOT of fun & a great workout. My daughter loves it too!
