Getting Caught Up... and more exciting news!!

I am so proud to say that I am completely caught up on my 365 photos on Flickr! It shifted from this thing that I HAD to do, to a task I couldn't wait to do. My plate is still quite full (though I am happy to say I've a let a couple of things go) and instead of spending the bulk of my time thinking about and creating reasons not to do what's on it, I just get it done. Those tasks and actions don't get in the way of my life, as I had previously convinced myself. They are my life. And I'm choosing to live it fully! :)

So, let's get on with the show. There are two new creative tools (toys) in my life.

First. A new phone. A phone? Yep. With an 8 megapixel camera in it!!! How fun is that?! Now I can take pictures on the fly and keep up with 365. Check out some of these that I've just posted...

New Phone with a fun camera! Mar.26/11 85.365 93.365

(You can click through to see them on Flickr :)

It's so great to be able to reach out and grab those fleeting moments when you're simply going about your day. Plus the camera feature has fun effects for shooting and editing! And super easy for uploading.

That would have been plenty exciting all on its own.

Then I got home from a workshop on Wednesday night, and Jon surprised me with an early wedding present. A Nikon D5000!!!!! My very first Digital SLR!!! I'm tearing up again just thinking about how grateful I am to have someone who fully supports my creative drive and desire. And wants to do whatever he can to help me soar with my dreams.

The camera is so light! And boy oh boy, the clarity of the pictures is incredible! Check it out!


I am really excited by the possibilities this camera creates for me! More learning, and maybe some earning :)

And I'm really enjoying being here, and being part of this wonderful community again.

Here's some questions for you I'd love to hear the answers to! What are your favourite creative tools? Who are your greatest supports in making your dreams a reality?

Hugs and heart,

Just blog hopping some today, and came across your blog. The pictures are beautiful, and oh so sharp! Our second daughter is a photographer, too, and I think she has a camera like you have.
My dh and I have been married for 45 years, and he has always been my support.

Lately my creative tools have been my camera. It's a pocket camera, a Nikon Coolpix with a 7x zoom, and my morning pages journal. Oh and my new Merriam Webster Collegiate 2010 dictionary. I'm excited about your new camera! My biggest supporters right now are all of my blogging and CED friends. Xoxoxo. terah

I'm happy that you are having fun with your new creative tools! It is so exciting to always try something new. Your pictures look lush! Today my creative tool has been a paintbrush and a set of acrylic colors and a pad to paint how I am feeling today, and it has helped immensely to put things into perspective.
I find that my greatest supports in making my dreams a reality are my expression outlets because they show me the way, and what I need to work on to get there.
Happy to have stopped by. Hope you are having the start to a very beautiful Spring.
Happy Creative every day. :) Enjoy.
