Well, I tried to add another page on my blog but I can't seem to get it to work the way I think it should.   I get very caught up on other blogs when I see such creative ideas and wonderful blog layouts but I come back here and can't figure out how to do the same....Any ideas out there?  Perhaps just one page is enough!!

So here is the shot I entered  for my Let's Do 52.   This week's theme was "Pretty Ugly" and because it's been raining so much, I haven't been out much :(  I opened up the front door and sat on the concrete porch with my camera in hand.  This is what I got.

7/52-Pretty Ugly

I still can't figure out what to photograph for my Shutter Sisters One Word Project.
The word this month is "LEAP"....still looking.....

Until next time,
xoxo Anna

Week 6 Projects

What a week.  Gabi is now 1 and we spent much of this week celebrating and preparing for the big celebration.  She had 3 celebrations and we worked hard to make them each very special.

This is my entry for week 6 of Paint the Moon's "Let's Do 52"  I am really going to have to work on getting this done.  I still haven't figured out what I'm posting for my other Project 52!! 


Until next time,
xoxo Anna

Week 5 Done!!!

Today is Gabi's birthday and although I've started week 6 for this year, this is week 52 since her birth.  So one year ends and another begins for her.   We will continue the celebration today and I'm sure I'll have more pics to share.

Still looking for my "leap" photo-opportunity for one of my other projects so if you have any ideas, let me know.

Until next time,
xoxo Anna

Cath Up Time

Trying to catch up on my blogging.  I'm keeping up with my 365, which is a challenge this year because I've had a hard time taking enough pictures for my layouts.  I'm going to work on this!

Also trying to keep up with 2 other projects.  These 2 are from the Paint the Moon "Let's Do 52".  Really working on my skills with my camera. 
4/52-A Different Perspective

5/52-Get Out From Behind The Camera-YES, YOU!  (I guess that means me)


I've started a 3rd Project 52 :)  I've jumped in on the One Word Project that is sponsored by 
Shutter Sisters.  January's word was a word of our choice so I chose the word "SPRING?"  I was so far behind that I used the same picture of the little flower in my yard.  I won't repost since it is just one or 2 posts down.  The February word is "LEAP".  I don't have a picture yet, but I will!
Yes, I take on too many projects but there is a purpose to my madness!  I really want to work on my photography skills and the only way to do this is to practice, practice, practice!!  Last week I broke down and registered for a 3 day workshop in Fredericksburg.  I'm pretty excited that I get to work with a different photographer each day.  I got to pick from 4 professional photographers.  I chose: Lindsay Adler, Michael Corsentino, and Hanson Fong.  I'm pretty excited.  Stay tuned!!

Until later,

Gabi's 1st Birthday-Celebration #1

Gabi is turning 1 tomorrow!  My how time flies when you are having fun.  She was born on Super Bowl Sunday and although her daddy had plans to go to a SB party, Gabi had different plans for him!!  Since the big game was today, they had the first of 3 parties for her.  She has brought so much joy to our lives and I never would have imagined that I would love being a grandma!!
