I have decided to give up my novel. It isn’t coming together like I would like it to. It is neatly packed away in the file cabinet. Perhaps, ten years down the road. Or maybe it will remain for my eyes only. I don’t have my heart into it anymore. It may be the story isn’t working. Who knows.

I will continue my blog. I love writing random stuff whether anyone reads it or not. 🙂 I have a few that do read it and that is awesome to me. 🙂 I will continue with some poems. I have developed adding poems to my kids photos. I have enjoyed that. I will hang some on the walls and others will go into albums.

Of course, I will post some of the art stuff I like to do. 🙂

I am not going anywhere, just changing direction. 🙂

Don’t go anywhere! 🙂

Time Flies!

All 4 Kids Fall

A photo I took in the Fall of 2003. My kiddos.

I have been editing this photo today to upload it to a site that will put it on a canvas. My daughter gave me the gift a year ago for Mother’s Day. Yes, the procrastination in me showing through. 🙂 I wasn’t sure at first what picture I was going to do. I took the year to think, yes, that is the reason for the procrastination. 🙂 (It sounds good.)

I went to upload and they suggest a bigger size. I will have to play some more in Photoshop. I do like how it turned out. I tried and tried that day to get them to all look at me and they never did. 🙂 I ended up with a couple photos with different expressions. I took this with an old 35mm film camera because I didn’t own a digital at that time. It was a cheap and simple camera. This is scanned in from a photograph. 🙂

I am glad digital camera’s were invented. I still have about six rolls of film to develop from back then. I have already developed over fifteen rolls. They have turned out well, other than my terrible photo taking skills. I kept them in a box in a drawer so they were not exposed to heat or light over the years.

I love when I get them back in the mail. It’s a good thing I know the year of the surroundings otherwise I would have no idea what year they were. 🙂

Funny when you can label your years by what home remodeling project was going on. 🙂

I have a whole tub of photos that need slapped in a photo album. I haven’t even begun to print off all the digital photos. It will keep me busy. I will always have something to do on those boring days.  🙂

I really should get them done before the two older kids start having their own families. 🙂

How do you keep your photos? Are they in a scrapbook or in a tub like mine? 🙂
