I live a simple life, exploring the great outdoors, and slowly the world with my husband and our 2 amazing little girls. I am a Shutterbug, I am constantly taking pictures, my camera is like an extra appendage! I love to cook, craft, bake, travel and just enjoy life! I've been told I'm a "Jane of all trades" and I like to tell people I have Creativity A.D.D. My interests are completely random and can range from making hair bows for little girls to "dumpster diving" and refinishing furniture with my best friend! I paint, I use power tools(and I'm quite proficient with a hot glue gun), and I just learned to sew this year, so I'm excited to see what will come of that! I hope you enjoy tagging along for this crazy journey of randomness!

Exploring the capabilities of a Macro lens...

WOW! I think I'm in love! I rented a lens(60mm macro) a few weeks ago from our local Photography store and let me tell you, that baby captures phenomenal details with very little "noise"! I went to Franklin Park Conservatory and botanical garden and tested it out on some gorgeous orchids, and a blown glass skylight by Chihuly. Absolutely gorgeous. If you've never seen his work you should check it out, it is really amazing! http://www.chihuly.com/ I had a lot of fun with this lens, I could have walked around there all day taking pictures of every little petal and bloom!
