Sweet Shot Tuesday & p52

Yep, I just posted a photo of a car.  Actually, this was a super fun challenge.  I needed to take the photo for a contest (didn't win, boo) and I wanted to use our Christmas lights outside, as well as my new Speedlite 430ex II.  I like the final product aside from the green dot on the car (should have removed in photoshop).

So, 2011.  I'm not a January resolution person.  I like the fresh start feeling of this time of year.  We had a wonderful Christmas break, maybe the best ever in our family.  We really enjoyed each other, our time and lots of family.  It was a great mix of hosting and attending.  The first year of relaxing with the kiddos, seeing movies, & sledding without worries of a strict bedtime, meltdowns and constant whining.  The kids are growing fast and that is scary really fun to experience.

I have not been around this blog much the past 6 months or so.  Although I have never been a constant blogger, I felt the need to take a break from posting and my sewing has slowed a bit.   I am going to continue to blog as time allows with no pressure, just fun.

I have enjoyed photography so much this last year; maybe more than quilting (gasp!).  I have decided to challenge myself to a photo project, m3bp52.  One good photo a week for a year.  I thought about the Project365 groups of a photo a day but not sure about that commitment.  I'll start slower and add more as needed. :)  I want to get better, a lot better.  That's most of what you'll see here in the next year.  Thanks for checking me out!

I think a project 52 sounds perfect! I have a 60mm lens too...the focus took a bitt to get used to! Nice job!
