Scavenger Hunt Sunday

March 06, 2011
It’s been a good week. Sure I got sick on Monday, but overall…the weather seems to be warming up and I can feel the creativity juices itching to get out (or maybe that’s just my allergies…ha ha). This weekend we’re celebrating my husband’s aunt’s 50th birthday – Happy Birthday Teresa! Anyways, it’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday. If you’ve been participating in the Scavenger Hunt each week (and last week 160 of you participated – WOW), I hope this week’s items inspired you. If you’re new to ...

February 26, 2011
Is it just me or are you learning so much from Elena’s Selfie Saturday tutorials?  Considering that this week’s Shoot and Edit Photo Challenge theme is Couples or Self-Portraits, I’ve been spending a lot of time lately thinking about how to better set up my shots. I’m sure that Jill will have even more tips for us on Monday – although I’m not  looking forward to sharing a SOOC shot.Last week’s lesson was all about arm’s length self-portraits or as someone so eloquently called them, the “MySpace” photo. My sister is the master of...
