I've been Tagged...

My Photographer friend Megan has tagged me to tell 8 things about myself. So....let's see..

1. I am a Believer in Jesus Christ. I hope to be the kind of person that honors Him, and I hope that it's the biggest part of me.

2. I swore I would NEVER (never say never!) drive a mini van. BUT - I have one and don't tell anyone- I actually like it. It has those cool power doors and seat warmers!!

3. Shopping might be my favorite thing to do. Said, but true, I love it.

4. My favorite book is East of Eden. I love to read but I haven't had much time lately for reading. I am about to start "Professionalizing Motherhood" which comes highly recommended by my good friend Heather, who, like me, never thought she would ever be a Mom. I was a career woman!!

5. My guilty pleasure is Desperate Housewives. Only one more week to the season premier!

6. Like popcorn to Megan I could eat pizza every day, three times a day, for snacks too and probably not ever get sick of it. I like plain old cheese!

7. I have two regrets- that I never played the violin or fiddle, and that I didn't continue to ride horses and become good enough to jump them in shows!

8. When I was in high school I was the lead in two of our high school musicals. I sometimes wish I had done more acting and singing as an adult.

There you have it. I wish it were a bit more exciting!

Something New

I recently experienced Jesh DeRox's website. And when I say experienced, I mean EXPERIENCED. He has a truly original style, full of passion and emotions of all kind. (His link is to your right) Anyway, this work made me want to experience with unusual colors, textures, and borders in some of my images. So far, these are the only two I have done, and I love them both. If you would like any of your own images turned into a unique piece of art by adding texture and border, please let me know. At this time, there is no additional fee for this service. Yayy!!
