And I'm off...

I'm a terrible blogger. Really, I am. I apologize for that...but I must warn you I'm going to be an even worse blogger in the coming weeks. It's for good reason though! I leave for my vacation on Friday! London and Paris here I come.  I've been running around doing errands and things before vacation so I haven't had time for anything creative.  However, when I get back I plan on making a London and Paris scrapbook album and of course there will be tons of pictures (probably not all of them posted here).  Until then my one or two readers!

My Best Shots: Downtown Photo Tour

I took a photography tour and class downtown this weekend. It was great. I bought the tickets on groupon. I actually went on a photo tour groupon buying spree and have stacked up tours from three different companies. The first one I went to was really bad. It wasn't a tour at all just us sitting in Bryant Park talking about cameras. This one was actually a tour and some camera talking.  This might be the 100th time I'm saying this but I really need to start walking around more and taking pictures.  Anyway, here are my favorite shots from the tour.

I Wasn't Gonna but I Did

I was sooo tired when I came home tonight. Going back to work after a 3 day weekend does that to you. I already committed myself to lying on the couch until bed time but I pulled myself up and started scrapbooking instead. I really want to catch up on my pictures because I'm going to London and Paris in a few weeks.  I want to be able to scrapbook those pictures as soon as I get home instead of a year later, as is the usual.  So I made this really quick page, again just some cardstock and stickers.  I have an idea in mind for a much more complicated two page layout, but you will have to wait and see...

Ok, I don't know why this turned sideways, since it's not sideways on my computer....

At least the close up didn't turn itself.  Off to bed now friend(s).

Museum Layout

Hellooo...I feel like I haven't written in a while. I got caught up in life.  The last couple of weeks I felt like everytime I came home from work, I still had so much to do that I haven't had time to do anything I like (like scrapbooking or cooking).  I took the day off today though...and believe me it was 100% necessary. Instead of being a hungover fat ass on my couch, as I usually am on the weekend, I was nonstop today. Shopping, cleaning, food shopping, gyming.  It doesn't sound like a nice day off but it was awesome. I even ate McDonald's for the first time in a loooooonnnggg time. It was delicious and I won a free quarter pounder in their Monopoly game so it looks like the next time won't be too far off.

Anyway, enough catching up on my life because I'm sure it's boring you.  My tangents are probably the reason I only have a few readers.  I was also able to do some scrapbooking today.  I've been meaning to scrapbook pictures from when I went to the Museum of Natural History (almost a year ago now, oops). Since this was the day of doing things I've been meaning to do, I actually scrapbooked them. I used a simple layout - ony cardstock with button accents. For once, I do not feel at all disappointed in the results.

Dreaming of My Lack of Photography

Last night I had a dream that I went for a walk on the boardwalk (there is no boardwalk by my apartment so I'm assuming in my dream I was at my parents place).  While I was up there I saw all these sea turtles on the shore running into the ocean.  It was then I realized that I didn't have my camera on me and I was so upset I sprinted back to my parents house to go get my camera, aware that the sea turtles were probably all gone.  As I came in my house my mom yelled at me that my shorts were too small on me so I had to change. Then I spent the rest of the day trying on everything in my closet and realizing that nothing looked right (this is something I do very often). 

I'm not much for analyzing dreams. Often I can figure out exactly where they came from, no matter how crazy they seem but this one was pretty interesting. I've been talking a lot lately about not taking enough photos..and now it seems my subconscious is also worried that I am not taking enough photos.  Perhaps I don't carry my camera around enough.  It seems like a waste of money to buy this expensive camera and only take pictures once a month, right? Although, I'm probably not going to be taking pictures in my office during the weekday, I can at least make an effort to get some photography time in on the weekend.  Now the sea turtles...i don't know where that came from...Although one time I was walking along the beach and saw a seal hanging out on the rocks. That time I was prepared with my camera.
