I can't believe that I am actually thinking Christmas this early. I know some of you probably have your Christmas shopping complete and packages wrapped and I certainly envy that tenacity, but remember I have that sign in my kitchen that says "Procrastinate Now". Actually I am thinking more in the line of making some gifts with my bazillion photographs. My friend, Marti has asked me to join her "art/craft" show in November with some of my photographs made into cards etc. and I thought 2013 Calendars with my photography would be a good choice. I have been searching all of the digital web sites for 2013 calendar templates....if you have ever made one from scratch you know why I am looking for templates. They are slowly beginning to make an appearance, hopefully by Oct 1st many will burst upon the scene.
Right now my plans are to make 3 different picture calendars....Barns, Flowers, and Tea Cups/Mugs. I have many, many, many pictures of all of these subjects. Here is my first attempt....This is an 8 1/2 x11, not huge, but not so small that you can't hang it. Feedback welcome.
I have been glued to the TV set this week, checking out all the new shows on the scene. And with Dancing With the Stars running for 2 nights at 2 hours a piece, that takes a big chunk out of the evening. And in my opinion (spoiler alert if you haven't watched it yet) Pamela Anderson so deserved to go home, she really didn't even deserve to be there with all those excellent dancers....just sayin'. I have been taping them all so I can at least zip thru the commercials. Last night I watched Ben & Kate, The Mindy Project...not sure about either one of these. Neither one brought an outloud laugh from me. I also watched Vegas, the new one with Dennis Quaid as a 1960 ish sheriff in Las Vegas. Interesting, will wait till I watch at least one more before I decide if this will become a "must watch" for me. How about you, have you watched any new shows that you consider a "must watch" yet??
OK, must run, almost time for another new one..."Animal Practice" about a vet that can talk to the animals....hoping it's a good one since I do love animals.
PS....piles are still in place, Bible Study, lunch with a friend, and shopping with a little photography on the way home keeps those piles from disappearing.

Until next time....
