Ahhh... The Weekend is Here

and I am soooo very happy to see it. It looks like we (or I) have a fairly busy one with jewelry pictues to improve on, a Christmas party and some serious shopping.

I'll be experimenting with and retaking alot of my jewelry pics this weekend. As I get more used to my camera and it's capabilities, I find that the pictures I once thought were good (or at least halfway decent) are now crap. LOL Since it's dark when I get home from work, I only have the weekends to take pics outside. I figure this will fill up the majority of my daylight hours tomorrow and Sunday. I'm looking forward to it even though photography is not my favorite part of the business. I'm gonna try to find some interesting things to use as props. I don't know if I'll have any luck, but with a garage full of stuff, I should be able to come up with something.

We also have Ted's work Christmas party to go to. I'm looking forward seeing some of the people he works with. They're all really nice. Of course the guys are geeks, but I can talk and hang with the wives. They're having it at a Japanese restaurant, so I'm hoping they'll have Sushi. Mmmmm... yum! That's my fav now and I do crave it on a pretty regular basis.

Shopping... oh how I hate to even get out in the crowds. I do have to get some things for my son, then the majority of my holiday shopping will be done. YAY me!!! =) I try to order online when I can so I don't have to fight people for parking, wait in long lines, or wade through tons of other shoppers just to get to the next aisle over. I'm making 3 gifts this year... my mom's, my dad's and Ted's moms. I may make something for Ted if I have time and rings left over. I have no clue what we're getting Ted's dad, his nephew or my niece. So those will be the only 3 left to shop for. Not bad, I'd say.

Oh and I have bowling tonight! I almost forgot about that. Two weeks ago I shot a 244. Not the best score I've had (which was a 276), but it is great. I usually get high 100's with the occassional 200+. I think I'm finally getting used to throwing my new ball and it's working out pretty darn good. Wish me luck tonight.

I do have another Featured Artist this week... TofuNutloaf. Please check her out over to the right of the screen. If you click on her shop pictures, it'll take you right to her shop.

Have a great weekend!
