Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. . .

Well – might as well enjoy it – we seem to be getting an awful lot of the fluffy white stuff lately! I use to HATE snow. I am still not a huge fan of it, but since getting into photography, I am definitely enjoying it a lot more! Here is what I took on Sunday – it was snowing huge fluffy flakes – they were absolutely gorgeous!

Don’t you love how they are all different! Some day I will have a true macro lens to take photos with – my extension tubes do a decent job, but I really want to do it the right way someday! Oh – but my photography wish list is a mile long!

A couple of weekends ago I went to a scrapbook crop with my friend Sandy. It was a lot of fun. They are held a few times a year at Camp Cilca in Cantrall. Its a cute little camp and the rooms are really not bad. It starts on Friday at noon and ends on Saturday at 5. I never think it lasts long enough, but that is usually the only time I have to scrapbook anymore! I started working on a mini album to put my snowflake pics in. I thought it would be nice to put them all together in a book. I will post a picture of it when its all done. I also started working on a cookbook for my daughter. Its an 8 x 8 album and I want to put some of her favorite recipes in. She will be 22 this year. Sometimes she calls and asks for recipes, so I thought this would be nice for her to have. I had made one for myself a couple of years ago and she really liked it. I still love scrapbooking but its really hard to find time and energy to do it these days!

So what has everyone been up to so far this year? We are planning our 30 year class reunion and I am helping with the planning. I am just now trying to find people on my list. Facebook will definitely help out a lot this time around. I have already found some just from looking there. I can not believe its been 30 years. Sometimes it seems like I just graduated. LOL Yeah – wishful thinking on my part, for sure!  Seriously though – the past 30 years have FLOWN by. So sad how time goes so quickly. Anyway – I think the reunion will be fun. I wish I were about 80 lbs thinner but thats life I guess. LOL I am just hoping everyone else has gained a lot of weight too!!!  Yeah – I already know several who have not. :(

Well – gotta go for now. Hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Talk to you all later!

I love your snowflake pics! I need to check into these extension tubes. I haven't scrapped in forever too. Probably since before we moved. I just haven't felt like it. I also really haven't got my room set up right either. The stuff is all in there but not organized at all. I have been too busy painting rooms and getting the house more to my liking. Have fun at your reunion!

GREAT SHOTS of the snowflakes!! I would have not realized they were REAL SNOWFLAKES if you hadn't said so. Amazing..
