Last weekend I went to a two day crop. I had a blast. It's been a long time since I had that much time to scrap! I worked on my Disney album from our vacation last October. In 2 days I did 42 pages! Still not done, though. Yup. I took a lot of pictures. I also had fun just hanging out with my friends, Deborah and Penny, and a new friend, Karen.
Recently, I joined an online photo critique group. I have a separate blog for that, but it's been fun. I'm hoping to learn a lot. Already I've begun to make sense of the manual settings on my camera. Woo Hoo!
Roan's a cutie, here is a recent pic of him. I wanted to get a serious look from him but I made the mistake of saying 'don't smile'!Last Sunday I took my camera to church. I was working on a challenge from my critique group, but I'm glad I did. It was a great Sunday to have a camera. It was a baptism service with 7 people who'd planned to get baptized. During the previous week, they had set up a temporary chapel in a separate room, keeping it open 24/7 for people who wanted to pray for the upcoming service or anything else. They also set up a cross where people could write down their prayer request and nail it to the cross.
It was a great service with really great worship and the sermon was also excellant.
After the sermon, we had a total of 48 people get baptized, and at least half of them were youth! It was awesome. Anway, it was a great service and I'm glad I had my camera.
My mom and dad stopped by Monday on their way to Florida. It was great to spend some time with them. Have I mentioned that my parents are really great and I love them? Well, now you know.
I've been challenged by Sophia to list 10 things I like about myself. THIS IS HARD! But, here goes. (deep breath)
- I have pretty eyes
- I like my hair
- I can sing
- I can take pretty good photos
- I'm creative
- I'm committed to God
- I like that I'm tall (can you tell I'm struggling here?)
- I'm friendly
- I try to give people the benefit of the doubt
- I'm a supportive wife
Whew, I don't want to do that again! LOL! I think my biggest fear is that someone reading this will say, ew I think her hair is awful, or she is SO not friendly, or for Dean to say, 'Supportive? What about that time when....' . I hate to think that I believe something to be true only to find out that no-one else agrees! Is that twisted? I guess that is where you do the best you can and try not to care too much what others think.
