Crochet Love

This is a picture of the headband that I just crocheted for Hosanna. She is sitting on the twin size blanket that I crocheted for her last Christmas.

Hosanna Jumping

This picture is straight out of the camera from the summer. I was planning on taking some photos outside on this beautiful sunny day, but I snapped four pictures and the batteries died. I didn’t even know that I snapped this cool shot of Hosanna jumping until I was looking at the pictures. I am linking up with Sweet Shot Tuesdays.

15 Things I Was Saving For Someday…

Well, someday is here and it is time for a handmade Christmas.  I have so many projects that I have been gathering materials for and it is finally time to use all the “stuff” to make the crafty, beautiful things I have been dreaming of. (Sara, this post is for you). Here are just some of the things that I found in the basement and around the house collecting dust, while waiting to be used. cross stitch fabric – I purchased it at the thrift store a very long time ago for next to nothing. cotton batting – The first …

Painting Again

I painted this week. This is a really big deal for me because I have not painted since January when I first got sick with strep. I was sick for all of February and March. (Since then I have been dealing with a knee injury, but that is another story.) I was so tired that I went to bed early and took naps whenever I could. I just didn’t have the energy for anything extra, not to mention that I couldn’t take the fumes of the acrylic paint when I was already having difficulty breathing. Okay, enough of the explaining …

Learning Graphic Design

If you have been around here for any length of time, you will know that I learned graphic design about 1.5 years ago. It has been an amazing process learning how to create art with a mouse and a free computer program, Inkscape. I feel like I have come full circle in the last year. I started out learning how to draw with the computer because I could never get my “in real life” drawings to look like how I wanted them too. This is why, until now, I have always painted abstract paintings. Now, I have come back to …

Funky Photos

I was so excited to discover that my photo had won the L.E.N.S. Photo Challenge – The Eyes Have It. You can see my post here. You can also see my photo mentioned here on Home Is Where You Start From. I thought you might like to see some more of our fun “coke bottle glasses” photo shoot.

The L.E.N.S. Photo Challenge – The Eyes Have It

This week’s theme over at The L.E.N.S. Photo Challenge is, “The Eyes Have It.” I have been waiting for a chance to show you this photo. We got these cool coke bottle glasses as part of dress-up and everyone had fun trying them on. This was one of my favorite shots and it is straight out of the camera with minor cropping (I cut out my mom and my dirty foot). I tried to play with it in Picassa and had some good results, but it wasn’t saving today for some reason. If you want to see more great photos …

Fun Photography Memes

Late last year I received a new camera as a gift and one of my goals this year is to explore photography more. For me that includes photographing my children as well as taking artistic and creative shots of other things too. I have found so many great photography memes and I thought I would put them all in a list and share them with you. If you participate in a photography meme or you host one that is not included in this list, please leave a link in the comments. (Last updated 29/01/2011 to include more memes and sort …
