Happy Sunday.

I have decided it’s time to take my blog seriously, to make it more of a daily commitment. If I want people to actually drop by there needs to be something worth coming here for. Suppose I should give away a few freebies. Suppose I should actually put in a bit of effort to advertise my blog. Suppose I should poo or get off the potty. Okay, starting tomorrow (Oh God, how I LOVE tomorrow!) I vow to post at the very least 4 times a week. I vow to post a freebie at least 3 times a week. I vow to post a new kit once a week. There now, it’s in writing or typing, whatever, here it is. If you’ve heard this all before from me, ignore all those other promises, these are legit.

Remember, Too Legit To Quit?

Today, being Sunday, was shopping day. We hit Ralph’s for groceries and Target because I needed new sunglasses. Picked them up for under $20. Hard to believe I once paid over $200 for green and blue Oakleys. Once upon a long time ago. We were lucky we went early, hardly anyone out yet and we flew right through. Got a some photo taking time in as well. I love using my camera. I could spend the entire day doing nothing but take photos. Playing with my camera and scrapping are just about neck and neck when it comes to my new favorite thing to do. Love them both.

Here’s one of my new LOs.

Rarely did I ever black and white a photo and when I did, it was for a challenge. I love color. I find it difficult to remove the bright, brilliant colors from a photo. But, I’ve been experimenting with non-people subjects and I must admit, I like it. It does seem to give photos and artsy look. Next week’s goal will be (as well as keeping to my vows) to use at least 1 black and white person photo in a layout. Sounds good to me.

Sounds like some good goals. I look forward to what is in store.

I don't use black and white pictures for my layouts either. Maybe I will try the non-people thing, like you suggest, and see if I like it.
