hot damn

James has completely, 100%, spoiled me for Christmas.  Him and I don’t actually sit down, wrap presents, and exchange gifts.  It’s more of a “when we get it, open it” type of ordeal.  Besides, the present thing is more for the children anyways.

Ok, so to re-cap, not only did he get me my serger and a few craft books to go along with it, he also got me something that I’ve been really (really) wanting for about 2 years now.


My Nikon d40 baby!!!!!!  I’ve been wanting this camera for 2 years now and either a) he got tired of me b*tchin’ about my crappy point and shoot Sony always coming out blurry or b) he really loves me.  We’ll go with b., but I know it’s a mixture of the two.  Don’t get me wrong, my Sony has takin’ some nice shots, some of which are my absolute favorite, but it’s time to step into the game of taking nice pictures.  My knitting, crochet, and sewing pictures always come out o.k. but that’s because they are inmobile.  My girls pictures, always come out looking like crap and it got to a point where I would “accidentally” forget my camera at home and have my sister-in-law email me pictures of my kids (that’s pathetic!).

And to prove that I don’t know a damn thing about photography and that this following year will be my year of learning – both with the serger and the nikon – here are some photos of me trying to play around and get to know my now new appendage of myself.

Lighting to dark

Lighting a little too bright

This one actually came out nice.  We’ll call this one “the house is clean before the Christmas tornado hits”

This one I love!  Not too bad on the lighting.

This one is beautiful!  Taken at K.’s Christmas party at her school

Eventually I’ll get around to reading those manuals that these things come with.  But for now, I’m getting absorbed into the Christmas spirit, have presents to finish, wrap, and give.  Hope every one has a Happy Holiday, and a very Merry Christmas.
