Professional Photographer ebook Giveaway

Ever since last fall when I obtained a new digital camera, my blog posting has declined. My new camera came with an owner's manual on a cd that I had to download, I felt ripped off! I enjoy reading an owners manual in my hands, taking it with me whereever I go. Now I had to read it on a computer which I am constantly trying to keep computer time to a minimum. So, the learning process has been greatly slowed due to my lack of interest in downloading a digital owner's manual. Well, today, low and behold, Grosgrain is hosting yet another fabulous giveaway for an ebook put together by a photographer. PERFECT!!

The Key to Taking Pictures Like a Professional Photographer ebook Giveaway

This may not be my camera's manual, but I am pretty sure it would be a great resource to learn a lot from. It would still be on the computer, but it would most likely be in a written language understandable by me. Thank you Grosgrain for hosting such wonderful giveaways!

New Skirt Love

About a year ago I posted about some ModCloth skirts that I wanted to attempt to create for myself. (Still have yet to create those, but I did just find that fabric again today actually!) Well, this year I stumbled across another site in a skirt search for myself to possibly make and wear to Farm Chicks. I found both on Zappos.com, never been to that site before...

This first one would have worked for Farm Chicks, had I tried to make it, maybe with a denim waist band instead. This second one is a Lily Pulitzer skirt and just looked like a fun one to make for a fun summer day... ...AND it reminded me of a recent Grosgrain tutorial, so I thought, HEY! I could do that! I did find one on Modcloth today too, though, and I already have the fabric for it. I just need that satin looking bias trim, if that's what it is.
Thought I'd share some of that with you. Enjoy!
