So on the big day:
- Jake got his new "grill" going.. red and green.. He will switch to orange and black for the December fitting. Very amusing.
- I made myself a fantastic chocolate cake from scratch, recipe off the back of the Hershey's can is highly recommended.
- and my lovin' husband got me the coolest camera.. Yup.. My first big girl camera. Lots to learn. Canon Rebel ( good name, eh?) EOS XTI.
Let's check this thing out:
Picture of the bead light pull (5 shots to get this one, checking the settings and all):
And one Jake got of the light pull's new part time job as cat toy. (Yes, I let him play with my new goodie. I am trying desperately to be a better sharer. It is not easy. But truly he is a great photographer... better than me.)
I am sorry.. how cute is that face? Good ol' tinsel teeth. Poor critter.
Photography is fun! i am going to do lots of practice. I have taken 400 pictures in the last 3 days. I love digital. Love It.
And I have been crafting. Really. I am actually working through the Guilt List and have started on an all Handmade Holiday for this year. I had hoped to finish my guilt list before my birthday (old business over, new year=new business ... but I still have 4 people on there.) I will post wip pics if I can't force myself to actually complete anything..
And speaking of old business:
Robiewakenobie.. you get the ring!! But, as usual, Blogger will only let me know you live in Lexington. So, email me, lady!
And Clair in England: You get a birthday goodie too. So you email me too and I will send a surprise... That hopefull will chase your postal blues away.
More Cool stuff coming soon. But for now, I need to run!
