It feels great to be posting again 🙂 Life has been a little busy with this new job and just life in general. I haven’t taken pictures in soooo long. Yesterday was my day off and William suggested going to Dorena Lake. Now this lake is absolutely gorgeous… during the summer. During the winter, however, it’s drained to prevent flooding, so it’s very muddy and ugly lol! What can you do to make ugly areas more beautiful?… BLACK AND WHITE!
Most people from all over the world know of Julia Child. I couldn’t agree more with this quote from her, these last couple of months I’ve gotten into cooking quite a bit. I’m not doing anything fancy, but it’s good food and good for you! We decided to start eating better, no to less salt in all of our food and way more fresh fruits and veggies. Sense I’ve started working, I’ve really missed being in the kitchen, experimenting with different dishes and how to replace salt. On one of my days off I decided to spend most of it in the kitchen 🙂 Of course, I had Frank (my Canon) with me to show little glimpses of my day. I didn’t capture a lot, but it’s a glimpse and I’m hoping to start showing you more of my dishes the better I get at making them!
We try to not have beans from the cans anymore, so this first shot are the beans before they go in a long boiling bath on the stove lol
This evening I made Roasted Chicken stuffed with garlic and lemons, so I just captured the garlic and lemon slices 🙂 I was wanting to take a shot of the chicken after it was finished cooking (it was so beautiful) but I had already cut it up by the time I thought of it 😦 I will try and show this dish completed someday soon!
On my last post TWILIGHT WINE TASTING, we went to the beautiful Sweet Cheeks Winery for some Twilight Tastings. That night the talented Tara Stonecipher & Gregg Vollstedt were there playing their music. They are a local group here and I just loved her bluesy voice 🙂
Here are a few shots of Tara and Gregg and I had to try and get a wine glass shot as well 😉
I’ve been trying to add new pictures to CafePress and using the older ones for different products. Looks like magnets might be more popular at the moment, so I added 15 new pictures to magnets and postcards!
Ok, so, I know that my chances of selling my pictures on CafePress.com is a little slim. I may never have anyone see my photos, but it’s a start. I’m excited to try and get my photos out into the world in some way. I don’t know if it will be worth all of the work, but I’m really happy with myself! I never thought I’d ever do something like this, start my own store on a website and just put myself out there. I won’t be discouraged if it doesn’t work out, because I know I have a LOT of competition! I just see it as an experience and it’s been a fun one so far 🙂 I’m just staying positive and see where it takes me. I’m hoping sometime within the next couple of months I’ll have my own website set up, but this is a good way to kick off my photography for now. You can see my photography on CafePress, but the best way to check it out is by going to my CafePress store!
At this point I only have Magnets, Coaster Tiles, Framed Tiles, Postcards and Glass Cutting Boards. I have set up folders on my site that makes it easier for people to see everything I have. I am loading new photos and products daily so please check up on it when you can! Thank you all for the support and encouragement 😀 You all are truly amazing people and I’d never have the confidence to do any of this without you all!
