This is addictive....

I think this will be post number 12. I am now adding the pictures to the blog myself - how cool. The next step is learning how to take the photos. Craig is reading the blog from his computer now - isn't that weird? I'm really happy with the close up shots taken by the new camera. Bitty looks awesome - you can count the hairs on her head.

I hope that you enjoy these blogs:)

More Hat

The hat was a little too big so I felted it at the laundry and it shrunk a bit too much (easy to do, unfortunately) so I tried to stretch it on the green head. Ill probably give it away next winter.

If you lived in Michigan

Michigan cold weather gear - aren't you glad that you live in Texas??

Tired of being photographed!!

Another shot of Bitty and her toy

Bitty loves to lay on the runner. She likes the nubby texture.

Valentines Day Gift Photos

I hope that I properly ruffled the fringe :) I think your decorator will crack up when she sees the pink lamp with the gold dots. I'm sure she will wonder about my "style". It does look like I have a very stylish friend who sends me awesome gifts.

Another shot

Hopefully, the right photo this time!

Me again - I'm trying to do this myself so bear with me.

Roasted Sweet Potato & Black Bean Quesadillas


This is what we had for lunch and it was delicious. The recipe is from Vegetarian Classics. I had never tried this recipe because the combination of ingredients sounded...for a lack of a better word - peculiar. I am on a kick to try new recipes (that will be another post) and I am so glad that I tried this one. The tortillas are made in Holgate - isn't that a hoot? We found them at Chief in Bryan and they are really good. Our favorites have tiny bits of jalapeno in them.
I'm so excited about the photos. I didn't do it, but I think that I will be able at some point. It will be helpful when we start listing things again on Ebay. Hopefully, we'll get started on that after this semester ends. Ebaying and selling on Etsy were Craig's main motivation to upgrade our camera. We think that things sell much better if you have great photos.
Take care,

Getting this blog started


Well, this is something which I have wanted to do for quite awhile. I think that I told you we had blogs in Comp 1 and I enjoyed that whole process. I love how you can incorporate photos with the text. Craig didn't understand what I wanted exactly so we had to do some tweaking. Please disregard the invitation to join the website @ At Live you cannot incorporate photos right with the text. I also like the blogger format much better than Live.

Craig just bought a new camera on ebay and it has a memory card that will work with my computer. I can take photos and then load them on my computer and send them to you. It all sounds easy. Of course, I couldn't do any of this stuff without my "geek squad" (Craig) teaching me how to do it. I couldn't function in this technical world without him!
