Your Kids' Milestones

Yesterday, my daughter hit a huge milestone: she lost her first tooth. It took forever! She made us aware of it being loose on the first Sunday in September. That's a long time between being loose to pulling out!

I think her next milestone will be the monkey bars:) She's getting the hang of it, but scared to let go and reach for the next one.

What are the milestones in your life?

It's Thanksgiving in Canada This Weekend

What are you doing?

Do you get a long weekend? Will you have to work?

Do you have projects waiting for you? Will you laze about and contemplate the world?

Will you be going to friends or family for dinner? What will the main course be?

Whatever you are choosing to do this weekend, please enjoy yourself and don't forget to Give Thanks!

I have not been writing as much as I should be because I've been making a lot of product. I'm just finishing off about 100 apple green snap clips and I'm not sure that's enough.

It's not so much as making Hair Flair as it is photographing it. I am a horrible picture taker. I don't deserve the title of "Photographer." I think you have to at least know your camera to get that title.

When I got my camera, I was so excited when I saw the manual, it had a lot of pages; I was sure I was going to be an expert by the time I was finished reading it. I did the usual, set up the time, the time zone, what my battery source was, etc. Then I flipped the page after I had it 'set up' and it was the same instructions over and over in about 13 other languages!

Yup, you guessed it - it wasn't a manual, it was a set-up book. I was on my own after that. I've had my camera for nearly three years and I don't know that I'm much better off now than when I started.

I have tried so many different ways to take pictures and bought a lot of light bulbs. I can't figure what background works best for my product, so I may be settling on a white background.

What is your trial and error "thing"?

Patio Furniture

It's that time of year again; autumn. What do you do with your patio furniture?

Do you leave it outside for the winter? Some people that do that. I don't understand it when I see it because that set costs just as much as an indoor set - but keeping it outside for the winter ages it quickly.

Keeping it inside takes up vast amounts of room and who has that?

What do you do with your patio furniture in the 'off season'?
