I've recently subscribed to the Digital Photography School blog, and today's post looked like a great one to share:
I haven't looked through them all yet, but thier daily posts are really easy to understand and quick to read, so I've enjoyed learning more from them.
While we're at it...I thought this was a VERY cool technique that I'm looking forward to trying:
Today's project: A Paper Lily
I wish it was for a happy occasion, but it's for a paper flower bouquet for a friend and former Scrapjazz Blue Crew member, Shelley. Her step-daughter (17) was killed in a car accident earlier this week and we're all hurting with their family.
Scrap Etc. (the local scrapbook store where she's also a designer) is sending our love and support with a paper flower bouquet.
Instructions for creating this style of origami flower can be found here.
Our backyard is a regular scene from a Disney movie. Birds, squirrels, chipmunks...and the occasional stray cat. But here's the villain of the bunch:

Blogging has been light this week for a few reasons:
- Our internet connection has been splotchy at best...
- We've done very little all week worth posting about...
- I've been in creative mode, working on a fun new project for an article...
We've been going to the Hoover Rec Center for almost a year now...nearly every day! The child care is wonderful, and I'd like to give the two ladies who work there some kind of gift on our 1-year membership anniversary. They're so good to Ayla and she loves them. And I love them because they give me an hour and half of me-time every day. Can't ask for anything better than that!
I'd love to make them each something in addition to getting them a gift certificate, but I'm stumped on ideas. Any suggestions of great crafty (not cheesy) child-caregiver gifts?
