Also, i finally got around to putting up an etsy site. that only took a few years :) i have some small drawings and a few paintings for sale there.
And FINALLY i got a new fancy camera... the nikon d5000. i LOVE this camera. i'm even in a photography group called "52 weeks of Love". There's a theme posted each week.. here are a few of mine...
this was my pic for Week 2: "On the Shelf" I was never into dolls as a young girl, but years ago i spied this well-loved little gal in an antique shop and had to have her. she sits on the shelf in my living room so i can look at her every day. this is Queenie ... btw, this was my first time taking the camera off of auto and going completely manual :)
Here's my self portrait. i painted my whole face with acrylics to kind of look like one of my paintings. i wish i'd had the time to paint my whole neck, chest and arms, i think this could have looked really amazing taken all the way.
This is my husband Bunches. We celebrated 14 years together and 6 years of marriage this past Valentine's Day
These are my hearts... Mr. B - my dramatic 3 year old, and Mr. D - my dramatic 5 year old
At any rate, i keep that camera on me at all times... it's pretty much one of my most favorite things EVER!!! Here's a shot of my little hummingbird friend that lives somewhere in our backyard and stakes claim to both of our feeders. he's a stinker and jam-packed with personality... still thinking of a name for this little guy..
In January he had a large tumor removed from his spine area that was found to be an aggressive form of cancer. we seriously can't believe how amazing his turnaround has been since the surgery. Sammy's been with me since before Bunches... he's old school... and just an all-around bad-ass cat. Love ya Samel Toe!!
anyway, that's what's been going on in my world... well, there's been a lot more, but i suppose that's why i shouldn't go so long in between blogs. until next time, thanks for reading!
