Here I go again

Another year, another 365 challenge. I really enjoyed that challenge last year and I plan to do it again. I am also posting daily photos to Flickr and I am thinking about putting all those on a page, just lining them up, nothing with embellishments... I really want to improve my photography skills this year, I am still struggling with low light photos, it drives me crazy!
Here is my first 365 page, more like the intro page, since there were only 3 days including Sunday. I will go from Monday to Sunday this time

Saturday Cassie Jones had her famous 30 minute masterpiece challenge. The idea is to finish a page within 30 minutes. She will give us some items to use and some restrictions to follow. this time everything had to bleed off the side of the page, everything. That was a really hard one for me :) Here is my page, although I think I will eventually change it, cause I don't really like it too much...

The new Heritage challenge has been posted too. Here is my page for it

These next two are just for fun (like the others weren't fun to do)

I am still thinking about which bag to order, so I won't have to carry my camera and my purse around all the time. It has to big enough and easily accessible. I want to be able to put my wallet, checkbook etc. in there with the other stuff, so if you have any suggestions, I am all ear :)
I am looking into a Manfrotto tripod also and would really like another lens, but I don't know what to get. I have the 50 1.4, 18-270 3.5 Tamron and the 18-55 3.5. I would like a faster lens, but the prices are prohibitive! We'll see, again, I am open to suggestions.
We have snow and more snow, I am so sick of it already! At least it has stopped for now and the roads are clear, so it's easy travel. Our trashcans are stuck in a pile of snow on the sidewalk from last week, DS will be happy that he won't have to carry them down today...
Okay, this was just a quick update, it's been too long already again..

Oh before I forget, check this blog out tomorrow :)

Anke! These layouts are all gorgeous! I love the embossing on the first one, the playfulness of the second one, the story of the third one and the beauty of the fourth one and the comforting feel of the fifth one.

You simply amaze me, you really do! Your creativity and productivity in your digital scrapbooking is just awesome! Thanks so much for sharing!!

so glad we don't have snow. It is warming up a little this week and supposed to get cold again next week. Love your LO's--that photography hobby sure is expensive, huh.

Never say Never!

Well, here I am creating my very own blog! I was always very sure I would never get into this blogging "thing", but here I am. I hope you will enjoy finding out a little about my not so interesting life!
