School Days are back

It has been a busy two weeks at work and since school has started so has the homework.  The three classes I am taking this semester are Photography (actual manual, film developing photography, Online Sociology and Speech (one of my biggest phobias) this class will be so good for me.  This is why I haven't been able to post much.  We did work in the dark room this last Wednesday and made a photogram, which essentially is taking photo paper and laying items on it that can be seen through.  The photopaper is put on the enlarger and a light is shined for a few seconds.  Then it gets developed with the chemicals and above is my photogram. It has my pill bottle with ibuprofen and acetaminophen that can be seen through it.  A decorative key with a leather strap from my purse.  A paperclip with a flower design.  My necklace and a pen that has a see through middle.  I think photo paper is really magical.  You put it in chemicals and wha-la it has something developed on it.  The photo paper is in a box in a black bag and it cannot be opened in the light or it will turn black and be no good.  It will be fun sharing my experiences with the dark room.

One Stamp

I used this one stamp and made three different cards.  The stamp is from The Artful Stamper and it is stamped on white paper and also on vellum.  I cut out the windows of the stamp and colored both the white paper and the vellum.  I love patterened paper and enjoy the chance to use it as often as possible. 

Here is a pink vellum envelope.  Even the mail person can enjoy a pretty card.

Pretty muffin cups

I found all these pretty muffin cups at Michaels Crafts.  I threw them in this bowl to store them in the pantry and thought they were so appealing they deserved their own picture. 

Poster Picture

I found this poster and immediately loved it.  I found a nice frame for it and Tom put it up last week.  The photographer discovered hearts in all different places.
