Two posts in one day- I have not done this in ages (can you tell I am on holidays!) This year for Christmas my husband bought me the camera I have lusted over for ages- a Canon Rebel T2i. Lucky for me he gifted it to me early knowing that I would want to take pictures with it over the holidays. I also find that I need time to get used to it! So in doing this I have gone to the Hands on Photography Blog that Sue Sykes does (she is rock-on wonderful!!). Every month it seems she has an asssignment that gets you using your camera- this months is about cropping or ‘filling your frame’. Below are my photo submissions!
Psst- there is also a prize pack so make sure you check it out and maybe get involved!!
You cannot help but love the holidays… time off (if you get it) really allows you that extra time you need to unwind and have some fun! Yesterday I got together with a friend of mine and we spent the day being creative… while our children played away! It was fun for all of us!
I got lots done and am not going to post it all today but here is one project. This uses the Wings paper, Black mini-medley accents, a pearl opaque and one of our clear cards. I really wanted to try something I had seen done a lot lately with our clear cards- running through an embosser- and I got to say I LOVED this. Here I used the swiss dots on the front of my card and I really like the extra punch it packed!
Wondering about my flower? this is a simple accordian flower made from folding your paper into a fan (my paper was an inch wide and I think 16 inches long for this flower). Once you have folded you glue the two ends together and then glue the flower to your project- now when glueing down your flower be generous with your glue- liquid glass or glue dots would work best here!
January is just around the corner and I cannot wait for all of you to get your Wings product and to start playing – it is so beautiful!!
Here is another look at some of the product (my last post was a video that walked you through all the new product available in January). This is a layout I created as part of a Christmas gift for some really good friends (they received it last night and loved it). The paper is Wings, stickease are all from the Wings Level 2 Stickease, and the layout is ‘Performance’ from Magic.
I think it turned out just lovely!! Remember you can place your order beginning January 1st!!
I do apologize as this is my unedited video- the edited one was not working 100% but this one seems to be okay- sorry to any of you who watched the first version and did not get to see all the goodies!!
I am so proud of my little man! This is his first year ‘playing’ hockey- I say this because he is not in a traditional hockey league but one that is designed to teach him all the skills that he will need in order to play hockey next year.
He has done so well in such a short time.
He has learned how to skate with a lot more confidence, he has developed amazing talent at skating backwords, he has learned to stop and this past week they started to learn to skate with sticks and pucks- he was in heaven!
Truly- the best thing he has gotten from this program is CONFIDENCE in his self- the kind that I cannot teach him but he must find on his own! I am so very proud!
