• Photo Friday ~ 2/24

    I didn’t take too many photos this past week.  I had planned to when I visited family up in the mountains, I even brought my camera.  But it was so relaxing at my sister’s, I just didn’t pull it out to take anything.  I just sat with family and enjoyed our time together.  Definitely not a bad thing, just wish I had thought of photos. I did get some other photos though, this is my latest crochet project.  It doesn’t look like it yet, but this is going to be a wrap.  I don’t like working long chains, so this is how wide it will be, and now I’m working…

  • Photo Friday ~ 2/17

    My plan was to take photos of our back yard, by the fire pit, and watch the snow slowly melt.  But the weather had other things in mind.  It was slowly melting, then more snow, then we got in a warm spell, with rain, so the snow disappeared quickly.  That is great, because I wanted the snow to melt, but it’s caused lots of flooding issues.  Thankfully with our house, we don’t usually deal with much flooding, though we have gotten some water damage to our garage.  But the flooding around here has gotten bad, so I’m hoping that ends soon. I am looking forward to spring.  We’ll still get…

  • Photo Friday

    I’m making my own Friday meme, Photo Friday.  😀  I want to share my photos, but I also need a little nudge to help me get out and take more photos.  I’m hoping knowing I want to share some on Fridays will help me.  If you would like to join me, just let me know, and I can send you a copy of the graphic. This is our back yard, and that’s our firepit.  I hope to take photos from the same spot and show the snow melting. Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save

  • Crocheted bookmarks

    I get together with friends once a month for a craft day.  Sometimes I feel like I don’t get any crafts done except on that day.  lol  This past craft day I was starting a new project that just wasn’t working right.  I started, frogged and restarted it about 3 times that day and still it wasn’t looking right.  I finally just stopped.  Crafts are supposed to be fun and relaxing for me.  It was definitely not fun and relaxing then.  😉 A friend of mine was working on a new bookmark pattern, that looked so cute I decided to try it.  I really like this pattern.  It’s so fun…

  • New Camera Bag

    I’ve been wanting to get a more purse-like camera bag for a while now, and I had it on my Amazon list.  Paul bought it for me for Christmas, and it took a while to get here, but I finally got it.  I will admit it was a little smaller than I thought it was, but my camera does fit with both of my lenses.  I really do like the look of it, and I’m sure I’ll enjoy using it.  With it so bitterly cold, I haven’t gone out a whole lot to take photos.  I’ll have to start looking for things to shoot inside.  🙂 Save Save
