I am super busy today. Approving prints that will fill my portfolio.....It's kind of nerve-wracking. I cannot be impartial about my own work, you know....I wish I had someone here who could help me. I might ask my friend, Nancy, she's an honest type...I am making two portfolios: one straight up prints, and the other is in scrapbook format (as in a photo already scrapped, since part of my "audience" will be scrapbookers).
I am photographing a friend today, someone I have been waiting MONTHS to shoot. His schedule is pretty busy so I am lucky I pinned him down. The last photos that I KNOW I will want in my portfolio are pictures of my handsome husband, but I am waiting for kid-free time to do those. I want to photograph him near a fence and tree line in the neighboring county. I see this shot every time I pass by there....
So much going on....I am going to be launching some EBay auctions next week. Getting rid of a BUNCH of scrap-related and stamping stuff to finance my new lens. I gotta have it. No ifs, ands or buts about it: it's a must. If this means giving up 50 stamp sets (that I rarely use), then so be it. Besides, I feel VERY guilty when I look at how much scrap crap I have. If you're interested in the names of the SU stamp sets BEFORE I auction them, e-mail privately and I will send you the list and I PROMISE you'd get a great deal.
I think I am going to BAKE something today. I bake when I am stressed. I bake for other people. I might make spiced pumpkin bread....THAT is always well received. I might make it for the library ladies....I might post the recipe on here. I always get requests for it after I bake it for someone else. Personally, I don't like pumpkin anything but I do like to bake...
