If you look carefully in the glass ball you can see Amanda sweeping leaves.

I am procrastinating.....

and it is week 1 of my course. In the notes about sucessful study for online learning it said that one of the skills is to rarely procrastinate. Didnt tell them procrastination is my middle name! LOL And it is not to say that what I have to do is hard or boring or anything like that, it is just that I seem to be very good at working right up to the deadlines. I really am trying to break that habit! I do hope the weather is nice tomorrow so I can take my camera for a walk.

I had to do a creative card post for Kaisercraft and this is what I came up with. Love doing this sort of thing. Just creating instinctively without any real idea of how I want it to end up. My tutorial can be found here

Off to listen to a photoshop tutorial and try and establish a workflow for raw images.

Life is Good

It certainly has it's ups and downs but it is definitely good.

Totally enjoyed myself at A Country Affair last Sunday. This was my class I designed with Teressa Collins goodies.

Later in the week I found out I didnt make the Kaisercraft team. Yeah I was dissapointed but hey you got to move on. I really loved my projects I created and will share them in a few weeks afterI have blogged them on the Kaisercraft blog. I have had a fabulous year with them and I wish the new team all the very best. I can't wait see what they come up with. It really does look like a superb team.

I am very excited to start a Diploma in Digital Photography on Monday through SIT and distance Learning. Can't wait even though I know it is going to keep me busy!

It was Auckland Photo Day yesterday and we had a busy day out but I took my camera with me. I didnt get to do the photo I had in mind for the day but I got a couple which I like enough to enter.

A Nice Suprise

I love nice suprises!

Someone made this for me. I love it and it is now in my craft room holding a variety of distress stains and stuff.

I am looking forward to the long weekend and definitely looking forward to this.!/event.php?eid=216682951694090
