Playing with my camera

I've had my camera for 2 years now and have never really played with all the different settings. So, when we decided to go to Moody Gardens this week I decided this was the perfect opportunity for me to play with low light, reflections (avoiding them in the glass!) and my macro setting. Here's a few of my favorite shots.

This is my favorite!

I'm thinking of printing some of them and making greeting cards.

Teacher Gifts

I'm behind!

1 1/2 more days of school and I haven't finished teacher gifts!


I've been fighting a migraine headache for 3 days and have fallen WAY behind. This is what I've gotten done so far.

This is also the first time I've played with vinyl. The first bottle the "R" is M's teacher's initial. I used the Storybook cartridge to cut it out at 2 inches and then cut the butterfly from the same cart at 1.5 inches.

The second bottle is a knockoff I found at one of my favorite blogs. I found this idea on The Idea Room. Amy even gives you a link so you can print out the insert. While you are there, make sure to check out all of her other ideas. The girl is a GENIUS!

Anyway, I'm going to put the sanitizer bottles in a cute little bucket I found at the dollar store with a hand towel I've added some fabric to. When I get the whole thing done, I'll post more pictures.

Gotta dash now, the girls and I are headed to a new butterfly exhibit at a local garden!
