I learned how to make cards in Photoshop Elements. Fun stuff.

Underwood Typewriter-Craigslist Gem
This past weekend I found a great deal on Craigslist. An old typewriter that is a bit rusty (which I like) and doesn’t work, but looks so cool.
I am going to use it for decoration in my house and for a photo prop. I took lots of pics of it and I like it in black and white.
Not bad for $25.
Here is one of my favorite photos I took of it.
I love typewriter keys. I added textures to this image too.
Have you found any good bargains lately?

Rosa Lost Her Battle
My sweet friend Rosa passed away on Wednesday. She lost her battle with melanoma cancer. I am thankful she is pain free. The pain for her was immense and melanoma is a terrible cancer. I don’t know how my friend still had smiles through her ordeal, but she did.
At her memorial service this afternoon, I will be remembering that smile. I have several ways that I will continue to remember her by and keep her memory alive in others.
Hug your friends and family and let them know you love them. And don’t forget to wear sunscreen.

Just Stuff I Want to Blog About
I am amazed at how easy it has been for me to not fret about blogging anymore. If I have time I post and if I make a project I post. I can remember a time where I would worry about having a project and go out and buy stuff to make a craft just to have something to blog about. I did giveaways and loved seeing my number of followers grow. I don’t regret blogging and all that I did, but my passion grew from projects to photography and that is why I seem to post more about photos and less about what I created. My crafty side seems to come and go these days. When it shows up and I have something to share I will be glad to do it. I am so glad I kept my blog just for me and not for pay. I feel comfortable that I can share what I want and when I want.
For instance, I want to share for those of you that have cared about my friend Rosa with stage IV melanoma. Her trial didn’t work and she feels as though her 2nd treatment option is not working either. She is very weak and tired. It makes me sad.
My photography business is going slow and that is ok. I still read and study all I can when I can to better myself. I love learning and will always be inspired to improve. I have become involved in several facebook groups and the information is priceless as well as the developing friendships.
I started doing CrossFit. I never have loved something that was so hard and expensive before. All of my coworkers have decided to do it too. I love the thought of all of us getting healthier and stronger together. Some of us have already been doing some exercising and some of us have not done any in a long long time. It will be so fun to watch us all grow in confidence and strength.
I signed up for a 30 day improve photography online course. I am already the first 3 days behind so I better go get caught up.
