Painting the Train....

It was a nice little project just waiting for a good day :)

The day finally came around the Thanksgiving holiday we were having our favorite cousin Suley over.
We booked solid the events of the day, since we don't get to see her that often we try to cram as many things into the day as we can.

This time it was Painting the Train, Cranium and then a Movie We had a fabulous time and I was even able to take some pics :)

Enjoy......btw I'm not in the pictures but....I painted the christmas trees, a zebra, and a violet house ;)

Painting can get a little messy which is why it took such a long time to start the project but now after now how much fun it can actually be we will be sure to do it more often :) 

Happy Friday!!!

Digital Point n Shoot...

I am a Canon Girl all the way baby!!!

That's my answer to the question I'm often asked.

My friends and family always ask me what camera they should buy...Truth is I don't have a point n shoot camera...

I gave mine away when I bought my Professional Camera, not realizing at the time that I should always have a camera in my pocket for those fleeting moments that I want to just pull my camera out of my pocket.  Don't get me wrong I LOVE my camera but the reality is I can't always carry it around in my pocket and I always use it to work but I think it's time to get something that I can also have when I'm at Play.  Realisticly unless I am just going to shoot, I can't take my camera to the beach :)

So I did a little research and I thought I would share it.  The Powershot G12 comes very highly recommended. (It's on My wish list)


Option two is also highly recommended and with a lower price tag.


I hope that this can be of help to someone...Maybe a Santa that might be looking for something to get for a special someone.

All of this information can be found at and soooo much more.

Happy Monday!!!

The Holiday Photo Booth.....

I was blessed to be contacted by Anne Ruthmann last month to help out with her yearly event 
The Free Holiday Photo Booth....

Her studio is at Western Ave Studios in Lowell, A great place for you to look around at all the other artists as well. Open Studios is the first Saturday of the month from 12-5.  In December for those who want unique gifts they are open for the first two weekends of the month. Feel free to come on by this Saturday and Sunday from 12-5.  You can find directions here

I was honored to be of assistance. The Photobooth is a ton of fun. You get to pick out some props and be just plain silly in front of the camera. I was able to bring my kids in for some fun of our very own.  
And here's the proof!
