Have you noticed that those (post title) are the trendy words these days? LOL! It makes me giggle a little – seriously! So since its been SO long since I blogged, I thought I must come up with a fitting- catchy title! REALLY!
I'm about 2/3 done with my semester of school…finally, I am in a groove. I think? Things are going smoothly for now–maybe this is just the calm before the storm? Oh well, I'm going to enjoy it…for the fleeting moments that it lasts. I really love my classes — I have an illustrations class, a graphic design class and a grds history class (+ Philosophy and an Art History). Interesting stuff. I look at the world a lot differently than I did before. I love the art history classes…good stuff.
I was reminded in an article I read this week to "do something creative everyday." Well, I'm pretty well creative to some extent everyday, but I think I'm going to try to do better. I haven't really taken a lot of pics in recent months because I'm so busy– for that I'm really ashamed. REALLY! We've got a little assignment going in one of my classes where we utilize photography…so I thought I might better warm up a bit. So today I thought…I'm going to look at things with my creative eye…just some things around the house- that I love. All taken with my 30D 50mm lens on manual settings– some slight PS adjustments on each…well, except the lamp…I had to bring it to life!
This is just some cabinets in my dining room…I liked the lines and light situation. I cropped all these into squares because I have plans for them… : ) And because I love Instamatic/Instagram prints.
Used the Instagram "earlybird" filter on the above. Can you guess what it is?
I absolutely LOVE doilies. I think about how someone handcrafted these beautiful pieces of art…to me they are like snowflakes. No two handmade ones are truly alike. I buy them a lot and love to just look at them. It amazes me how inexpensive they are. Beautiful.
Last but not least…this is a knob from the closet doors in our "powder room." I admire it often and have meant to photograph it. I like how this turned out. Wow.
Other creative endeavors this week…I typed a letter on this…which was both fun and a workout for my hands and fingers…
I made this cute banner for a customer at the store. Let me know if you need one.
I ordered this pic in a wrapped canvas…YAY!

Hope your fall is abundant with blessings.
