A new lens...

This was one of my birthday gifts from Jim...he was very good about taking all the not so subtle hints I gave him...:) a close up lens to try and improve my pictures..I know I can do this....looking forward to the learning curve..thank goodness for digital film! Here are a few of the pictures I just took with it.


A new bracelet for Caroline...she wants 25 more to sell at the Christmas Fair she holds each year at her Log Cabin Studio..$5.00 and up to $10.00 {depending on the bracelet} will be donated to the Leukemina Society. I had better get busy crafting! Our Lance Armstrong wristbands finally arrived and we are proudly wearing yellow on our wrist to support Harry...He had a week at home and goes back to the hospital tomorrow..what a gift this week has been for he, Jill, his boys, their wives as well as our family..we are taking our blessings one grateful day at a time!


Some of the beads I will be using!

Congrats on getting a nifty fifty! I love mine, it's on my camera 98% of the time.
What a wonderful idea for the bracelets, and such colorful beads. I've just begun to try my hand at jewelry making and I'm really enjoying it.
