I Forgot

Yesterday, I was supposed to do a Thursdays post about Stelly Bean. You get her tonight instead. She was happy to goof off for the camera. I got these shots with my new reflector. Can you tell the difference between the shots taken with the gold side and the one taken with the white?

A few weeks ago, I broke the first rosary I ever made. Today, I finally got around to creating a new one, using some components from the old (the crucifix, the center, and the green Swarovski crystals).

After Noon Already?

Most days, I'm surprised to find that the morning has already disappeared.

Frozen Assets

This evening, I used some of the delicious raspberries my friend MaryAnn gave me to make berry biscuits. It was a good decision.

Great Expectations

Stella caught me painting and wanted to join in the fun. Once she got started on her own canvas, she told me, "I'm going to become the most famous artist ever. This could be the best paining ever." She also informed met that when she puts the end of the paintbrush in her mouth, she's trying to decide what color to use next.

A day just doesn't seem complete if a pot of tea has not been brewed.

New Purse

After Henry made her a duct tape purse, Stella raided the toy cash register to fill it.

When I showed Stella the bowl of Kisses, she was happy to sit for me. She even shared with Luke, who was holding the reflector.

Making the Most of My Time

Bridget got out of play rehearsal about 20 minutes later than expected, but that's just fine with me. It gave me more time to read. In fact, I barely took notice of the other play participants who left before Bridget, and they didn't seem to notice that I was crying my eyes out when I got to page 110.

Practice Shots

I recently picked up a couple of photography books and am trying to put into practice what I'm learning. This evening, I worked on lighting and looking for horizontal and vertical lines.
