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.
