Whenever I have a crazy idea for a shot and need a gorgeous model, my little sister is always game! I miss her and am pretty sure she should move to Idaho and live in my office. I would even blow up an air mattress for her! Yep. That spot right there in the corner is all her's!

If you are up making cookies at 12:30 am, that counts as a new day, right? I am taking small 8-10 minute power naps between each dozen (thank you trusty microwave timer). Totally worth it though. BEST COOKIES EVER! Seriously though. They are.

|Because I felt like redeeming myself, here is gorgeous shot #20. I'll get this snow thing yet!|
Last night, snow fell. It is still coming down. I haven't taken a picture in the snow for a year, so sure, let's give it a go!
No peeking photo #1 was a tragic failure! I will not be posting that one.
But, #2 wasn't too bad I guess. Overexposed for sure but I was going for that "WOW you live in a winter wonderland (or frozen tundra)" effect.

|#2: A little Photoshop burning and I'd say salvageable.|
|#2: And finally, some extra love in Lightroom.|

I dusted off my film camera yesterday. It felt good in my hands and I began to crave the dark room. Remember when you couldn't see the results instantaneously? When you really only had one shot and you'd better get it right? So, wondering if I was still capable of loading a roll of film, I went to Walgreen's to buy a battery. They are pretty pricey -- more than I remember them being nine years ago (Shut up! It has NOT been that long, has it?!) -- so I left it there. It is for the best. I can't afford film right now either. Also not exactly sure where I would find film without a little internet hunting.
