Another new photo!! Enjoy!

I'm hoping that we are going to move the furniture out of the storage unit today. I'm just waiting for my hubbie. He takes forever to get ready and it really never

Please view this photo large on black. You really need to look at it large to appreciate the details in the droplets!

Our storage unit is almost empty. All we have left is the big furniture. Yea! We should be completely moved in by the end of the week.

More photos to come!

I took this the other morning when it was so foggy. I recommend looking at this large on black to really see the details. Look especially at the large drop on the top, right bloom. You can see the tree in it! Cool. I took a lot of shots that morning, so hopefully I'll have some more to post soon!!

On another note, we have officially finished painting, so we are all ready to move in!! Hooray!!! :)

New photo!! Click on the photo above to see it larger!

I have a lot of new photos to work with. I'm hoping to get to them soon. I also have a few new textures to play around with. Most of the textures used in the photo above were taken today. I'm thinking about offering my textures on Flickr for free use. What do you think?

My newest photo!! Enjoy!!

We didn't get any work done on the house today. I'm not feeling well right now. I'm hoping its just allergies, because then I know it won't get too much worse. My mil is just getting over a bug that started out with similar symptoms to mine. I hope that this isn't it.

So enjoy the photo of an allergen! :)


This photo is from Arthur, IL. I saw this kids playing and thought that they were adorable. I just want to give the one in the center a big hug. So cute! This photo took me a while to edit. I had to remove some monkey bars from the foreground and a big red pickup truck in the background. Then I changed the saturation in the photo and added texture.

So to my personal life...the house is almost done! All that's left to paint are touch ups. Hooray. We'll probably spend a day or so cleaning after that and then we can move in. Finally!!! It took forever! I don't know when we will get internet access, but it may be until October. Ugh. I don't know how we'll do it. I remember a time without internet, but I can't imagine doing it again. I would not make a good Amish. I need my technology! :)

I'll try to post again before the big move. I have a couple of more photos all ready to be published. Later!

Sorry I haven't posted much, yet again. My husband and I are in the process of painting and cleaning our house. It's taking much longer than expected. I am so sick of painting!!!

So, due to the fact that I have been unable to sleep all night (I tried going to bed around 7:30 last night and it's now 6:30 am...) I edited two new pictures and am now posting a new blog entry! Hooray!

So you know, I have opened an account at deviantART. There are prints for sale there, if you are interested. I'm working on getting some of my best work uploaded there and everything should be set up soonish.

OK, it's just a short post, but I thought I should say something. I will have another photo up later on!

I hate waiting...

So, the inspector can't get to our house until Thursday. Which means that it'll be after that that the sale will close and we'll finally be able to start cleaning and painting. Which means that we won't be able to move in officially for another 2 weeks. I'm frustrated.

But, on the plus side, I've gotten Jon excited about looking at stuff to decorate the house. We're going to Menards this afternoon to look around just for fun.

So, while you are waiting for updates about the house, take a look at my newest photo. (I finished it last night.) I had no idea that there were wheat fields in Illinois. I had only ever seen corn, beans, hay and the occasional sunflower. I thought it was cool. Feel free to take a look at it on my Flickr site.

Until next time!!

I'm back!!

I know that it's been awhile, and probably no one will read this, but...I'm finally back.

It was a busy school year, and teaching took up most of my time and energy. I barely took any pictures during the winter this year. There's a huge gap in my photo timeline. Such is.

Here are the life updates since my last post:
- My brother and his wife had their baby (Kara Mae).
- I'm moving in a couple of weeks into a new (to me, at least) home.

So, I am working on some more photos, and should have more to post, soon. In the meantime, take a look at my Flickr page for my most recent shots. Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully there will be more to come soon!
