The Creative Juices are Flowing....

I have been in a design rut.

A big one.

Until now......

I had the first day of my photography class last Thursday and it just knocked some sense into me... that and this fabulous antique store that Ann took me to may have helped out. I now have so many idea's and things that I want to do to my house and I am super excited to get my next photography assignment....

My a~dorable husband got me a Cannon Rebel XSI for my Birthday/Christmas
What a gift!

I have been snapping away ever sense. I just enrolled for a photography class at U.V.U through a continued education program. It starts at the end of March I am elated. I have always loved photography and took a class back in high school. I have gotten some great shots in my travels over the years but look forward to taking it to the next level. I will be sure to post some pics so you can see my progress.

Let There Be Light~

I have been thinking about this light for several weeks now. What do you think?
I think it's so unique and stylish. I am thinking it would look fabulous over my round pub height dining room table.

~Hope your enjoying your day~
