Well, I don't know about you but this last week has been quite eventful for me.
My Daughter Zoe is going through a rather rough time & it has been a week of trial & error in regards to the parenting side of things. Being a single Mum takes it out of me sometimes but I guess we all have to do our best & just be there for our children. However, I am extremely happy & thankful that my older children have come together & helped out where they can :)
On a brighter note....guess what I bought myself the other day? :)
Let me show you....
I got a new camera :) Woo hoo lol
It's the Canon SX500 IS.
It is a compact, lightweight camera with 30x optical zoom lens. It has a 16-megapixel CCD senor & fantastic image stabilisation. Brilliant for when I have the shaky hands lol.
It has a 3 inch LCD display screen.
The flash can be adjusted - have less or more flash. Not that I use that much with my designs but will come in handy when taking photo's in general.
It has an array of manual controls for me to play with :)
Program, aperture, shutter & manual exposure, scene modes, creative effects, discreet mode for quiet shooting mode & movie mode. There is also a directional pad & control ring for tweaking ISO settings & self-timer etc.
It's a pretty cool camera but of course, I have to spend a little more time with it to get to know it well & to figure out the settings that work well for me & my environment when taking photo's of my designs. I have only played with it once so far (things have been too hectic round here lol) but so far I love what it does :)
Also, before I go, just letting you know that I have added an album on my Dreamtime Facebook account where I have been adding my Designer Papers. I thought it may be easier for you if you wish to have a custom design created as you will be able to see which DP's are available & to choose from. Of course, I have HEAPS of DP's so it it going to be some time before they are all up there lol. It will be an ongoing process of adding them for a while :) However, I intend on getting them all in the album sooner rather than later lol. If you would like to check them out, click here.
Well, I had better go.
Before I do though, I just wanted to say thank you to all of you that offered some great advice in regards to Zoe when her friend was diagnosed with Diabetes only a few weeks ago. You have been very helpful & I appreciate it heaps :)
Thanks for stopping by everyone :)
See you in a few days with a new design :)
Thank goodness for social media :) Feel free to keep up with me :)
