May is here!

And let the craziness begin! Some people think December is their busiest time of year, but not me! Don’t get me wrong, December can be killer with all the holiday hustling and bustling, but I think May is by far much crazier in my household! Kids are in the midst of spring soccer and this year I have one who is playing volleyball. Saturdays are a joy…3 different games to get to and 99% of the time, they are overlapping in different towns! YIKES! But, I enjoy the fact that my girls are active and have fun doing these things.

I finished my last photography class last week and learned a lot. I think I mentioned in my last post that this class made me think outside the box when taking photographs. I still have a long way to go and lots of practicing before I perfect any part of my photography skills, but that’s ok…I’ll enjoy every step of the journey!

I’ve also been playing around learning CS3 and CS5. Talk about tons to learn. I worked with my mentor last week and actually made a sheet of digital paper (YAY me!) and I made a few elements too (a fuzzy fiber string and a brad!). I get so caught up in the great downloads out there, that I forget to create! I found lot of cool patterns, masks and actions to use in editing. Check out these photos below. I took a photo of my daughter and my sister in law’s niece and had fun running a few actions in CS5. See the different effects you can get on the same photo?? Fun stuff!!

How sweet is this little face!? I just love this little girl and she is the perfect model…I shot this photo and then ran actions from Pioneer Woman and the Coffee Shop.

This pretty face is my oldest daughter. She’ll pose for me sometimes. This old barn is at the end of our driveway and every day as I pass by it, I think of how cool it is. I wanted to convince one of my girls to let me take their picture on the fence in front of it…I convinced her! YAY! In these photos I’ve used actions from Pioneer Woman and Coffee Shop again. They have so many and they are all great!

Hope you all have a great week!
