Doodle #2!

I honor of the wonderful weather (at least the few minutes of it in between all the rain) I have come out with this second Doodle!

I know I said I would make a Doodle every day. That was a bit of an exaggeration. I have other projects, too, you know. Still, I will do more and more and more and I will never stop until my efforts finally work!

Nikon Coolpix L120

I ordered a new camera today! I know, it's not quite a DSLR, but it's a damn sight better than the camera I am working with right now. And in my budget :) Isn't she sexy? I'll have to wait until I actually get her before I decide what to name her.

The problem with taking reference photos when you have shaky hands lies in having a camera that waits a few eons and then decides to move the shutter. Hopefully this baby will be quick enough to compensate for my awesome jitters. I had pretty much stopped taking my own reference photos because my photos always sucked so much. Hopefully I can get back into the habit. And maybe I'll get some lovely bar mitzvah memories too.

All In A Row

My sister wanted me to paint some wooden spoons that she could use as garden markers. Though it hasn't become my next career direction, I think they came out really cute!

I was going to try for an old naturalist encyclopedia kind of look. Sort of. In the interest of them showing up bright and clear I mostly just painted them. They shall be varnished and then put to delicious use.

In other news, I eventually plan to open an Etsy site for my shoes. It's on my list, along with five hundred other things, to do!
