Workin' on some projects today!!!

Well I am officially working in my new room!!!! I am working on a couple of projects a Family book shaped like a tree and an altered tray!! I got the tray a LOOOONG time ago at Hobby Lobby and it has sat in my scrap closet for more than 2 years UNTIL NOW!! I thought about giving it away when I was packing up to move here but decided to keep it and I am really glad I did!! I just finished painting it red and when it dries I am going to distress it and then alter it abit!!

Wanna win a prize.. I know I do..

Ponderings blog is celebrating this weekend so if you want to win a prize you need to read this blog and tell a story on your blog or a message board.. Here is what we are supposed to tell a story about.. "tell me about the street you grew up on" Ok so here goes.. I didn't really grow up on a street but more like a LONG dirt road!!! I lived in the country and our drive way was about a half mile long!!! We loved playing up and down the road and our parents didn't worry because it was so safe, no cars, no people.. Just my family and some horses and cows.. I remember when berries were in season black berries and red berries would grow along the road and if we got hungry while we were playing we would fill our pockets with berries!!!!

Wow it's been a while since I posted..

I am currently not doing camera straps because we just moved into our new house and I have just been busy.. I will try to do a better job at keeping you all updated.. Thanks so much for all your support!

WHEW is my butt tired!!!

Well not really my butt per say but my body!!! I have had a very tiring week!!! Bradyn had his tonsils removed last Friday and just today is feeling better.. I waited on my poor baby hand and food and I would do it again in a second but I will say I am worn out!!!!! On top of that I had so many obligations this week that I just couldn't get done from going to the P.O. to working on my DT stuff.. I just couldn't get it all done.. I did however get some new camera straps up.. So that is good. I was able to get a few of my new Hipster Straps up.. I think they will be a big hit.. ERRR well I hope so... I also got my 50mm 1.4 lens in today.. wooop wooooooooop.. Here is the poem I posted on 2peas about it.. LOL

An Ode to my 50!!

I walked outside and what did my wondering eyes see???!!???

A beautiful brown package sitting there just for me!!!??!!

Propped up against a wall I might add.

Looking cold lonely and so so sad.

Why I picked that poor box up I did.

And tore off the tape and opened it's lid.

Oh my what a site that was inside.

For it was a lens to beautiful to hide!!!

No more brown box for you my pretty boy.


So watch out world here comes Kristie with somethin' nifty!!

It's my brand new adorable, good lookin' fifty!!!!!


Anyway.. Back to my straps.. I am soooo happy about introducing them.. AND NOW WITH OUT FURTHER ADO................ DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got the cutest dress form to display them on and I am in love with her!! She is sooo cool!!! LOL.. I am in the process of making new straps called the hipsters.. They are longer and have a cool pocket for an extra memory card, and they have a cute little camera charm on the end of them!! I can't wait to show them off!!

Ok so I guess I am a follower!!!

I am feeling kinda overwhelmed.. I am making camera straps.. I loooove them so much.. Everyone else seems to really like them as well so that's good.. I am in the process of making longer ones.. I am calling them "Hipsters" They are longer and have some cool features on them.. I am also doing a good bit of photography lately as well.. We are planning on moving soon too..
