So how was your holiday? Ours was great! Really nice and quiet. Just the four of us. The kids got tons of gifts from family and friends all over the planet! Every toy they got makes some type of noise, rings, or talks loudly. So if you gave my child a toy for Christmas and you're reading this, I'm coming for you. ^_^
Mel got me some cool new goodies for my Rebel. A 50mm fixed lens, a circular polarizing filter, and a tripod! Yay! **dancin', dancin', dancin'** A great start for a novice photographer like myself. I've already taken some nice shots with my new toys. Take a lookie!
A few tote bags in progress, like this one, that I started before the holidays and just haven't had the chance to finish yet. Without the tripod I would have taken about 80 shots just so that I could get one that didn't look like I was in the middle of an earthquake! Then I'd take the good ones into Photoshop, (gasp! yes I use Photoshop ^_^) adjust the levels, the saturation, the colors, sharpness, etc. This time I didn't have to do any of that! Saved me so much time. I took about 16 shots, picked out 5 good ones and here I am posting about it! The filter helps so much with the colors, they just pop! Gotta love that! LOVE my gifts. Thanks baby! *smooch*
Anyhoo, the other reason I'm posting is because I did indeed mention a give away this past week. I'm feeling extra generous lately. Must be the holidays still buzzing around in my head, ah yes and tomorrow is a special day for me. (You'll find out why tomorrow. ^_^) Plus, I like to liven things up around here a bit and also people delurk and say "hello" which is really cool too.
So here it is:
Last time I picked one person, but this time I will pick 3 people!
- One person will get a custom made oblong pouch.
- One person will get one of the tote bags in progress that I just showed. (Your choice.)
- And finally the third will have a choice of any one item that I made this year on my blog, custom made to your liking!
Woohoo! Go giveaway, go giveaway! It's your birthday! It's your birthday! *Does the running man*
I love a good freebie. This has been an awesome year for me and I'd like to share some of that awesomeness. So if you'd like a shot at winning some of my booty, hmmm, let me rephrase that......hahahaha! You get what I mean, leave a comment on this post. Comments will remain open until 12 noon ET, Friday, January 4th, 2008. I'll do a random draw and announce the winners later that day! Let the games begin!
