Sorry for the delay…

I’m sorry I’ve been M.I.A. on the blog for a couple of weeks, it’s been hectic here in Oracle-land dealing with my sister’s wedding, school applications, and program and invitation designs.  Not only that, I’ve been teaching myself graphic design from some PSDtuts.com.  I’m also trying to wait for my Sub-check to come in for me to buy a new book for my Paranormal Library series.  I have one I’ve been reading, but it’s just way too much information in a small package that I already know, so its been agonizing, but a great read nonetheless.  Also, I may post a complementary review on one of the books I have already written about.

Anyway, to pass the time before I post the last of my images from my 30 Photography Challenge and A Paranormal Library, I am going to post some of the most inspiring things I have found over the internet with LINKS!!!

  • I’ve been frequenting A Beautiful Messfor quite some time now, and here are some very inspiring D.I.Y. projects and crafts I have discovered since I’ve been reading about the work from Elsie and her crew!
    • I love this wall art made from paint swatches!  Believe it or not, I have a bunch of these guys in a drawer in my room!!
    • I keep going back to this Record Cabinet.  I have some ideas to use this as an impromptu jewelry supply and mini sewing machine storage!
    • Elsie had a sewing class on her blog, great for me since I have a new sewing machine to try out!  If you’re a newbie like me, try this Simple Cotton Top!
    • If my hair would cooperate, I would so do this hair style!
  • Pugly Pixel is a great resource for Photoshop items, and I find her blog highly inspiring for my artwork and blog!
    • These Handmade Envelopes inspired me to create and write a blog post on my sister’s Save the Date cards!
    • You can learn how to make your own Blog Post Layout!
    • There are also some downloadable’s for free or for those who are part of her membership (with a fee).
  • Of course there’s NubbyTwiglet who posts design advice in links loved and such for those who love graphic design or shoes.

Check out this Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas commercial, every time it comes on, I start dancing!!!

That is it for me, till next time!!!

The Photo-maniac

So, as you know, I like taking photographs, while I am certainly not the best a photography, I make up most of it in Photoshop skillz….well not really, but if there is one thing about me, is that I try really REALLY hard to make sure each photograph and manipulation are better than the last.  I also like this Photo Challenge because it pushes the bar to where I try new things I thought I would never do with my photographs.  In fact, I’m carrying my camera more now just to get a nice shot for one of the challenges than I have before.  I’m also considering about starting a series of Photographs regarding the creepy dolls I’ve encountered in my mission to find comic books for cheap.

Anyway, aside from my love for anything photography related, I wandered onto this website from PuglyPixel and A Beautiful Mess, and I haven’t been able to stop drooling over it!!!  PhotoJoJo is a great place for anything and everything photography related, and gives me some nicely priced items to look at.  Below are several things that I’ve been currently looking at lately:

Wide Angle & Macro Lens Adapter

White Balance Lens Cap

Pop-up Flash Bounce

Also, I’ve been wandering to several pawn shops lately, and I found at one a nice Nikon 78 – 300 zoom lens.  The best part?  It was priced at $160!!! I have it on layaway right now, so I’m determined to get it as soon as possible!!

That’s it for me at the moment, those of you who do have cameras, what brand do you use?  What are the items that you can’t live without?
