Extra Styles


My crafting resolutions:
1. To create more than 50% of my projects with either recycled materials or scrap left over materials to cut waste and excessive earth fillers.
2. Teach paper crafting classes and share the Joy.
3.Custom Design Products I love to use and share.
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.

Last day for Candy and Challenge #8 A Die for a Sketch!

Link to my candy till tomorrow here!

This is the wonderful little Bavarian Inn for Christmas EVE dinner!  There's my two guys!  Aren't they lovely??

Is it really the 5th of January already?  It's had to admit, but the year is really going fast already! lol  My contribution for the challenge will be on the 20th of January, so be sure to come back and visit me then also!  I may have a bit of Die Candy for you all!

My boy and girl with my MOM at Frankenmuth on Christmas Day
I've been doing a bit of after Christmas shopping!  Made that big decision and bought a real camera, light box and backdrop for my studio.   I know this is just the end of the means for paper crafting, but I love all of the artistic control you have after the project is complete!  The lighting, the scenery, the focus and depth and so much more with the editing program afterwards.

After in-depth consideration and comparison I've decided on the Nikon DSLR3200, with 24.2 Mega Pixels, 18-55 lense and an extra 55-300 lens too!  The camera is even compatible with a SD chip X2 Pro Eye fi!!!  Now I point and click and the photo is in my laptop waiting to be edited.  This thing is just amazing!  I really can't wait to share my new pics with you all in the Whimsy Magazine as well as here on my blog.

If you like what you see and have any questions regarding the camera, I'm taking a class for the next several weeks from basic to advanced and I'll be happy to share what I learn with you.  As long as I've experienced it, I'll share it.  *big grin*
