Torches, Fire, and a Camera

Last night there were three amazing cameras laying around and two girls who just happen to be photography lovers.  It was very discouraging taking pictures at night in brown rooms when you are trying for artistic photos. It just doesn't work. It only took a reminder, just a mention of, "why don't y'all take pictures outside of the torches?" to start us off.  BEELINE! It was the best suggestion ever and so much fun!  

We decided that the zipper looking streak across the picture was a bug! The rest of the picture isn't that great, but I thought it was so cool.

School has started and rainy days have commenced.

 Not that those two things particularly go together, but it just happens to add an atmosphere to life.  I was wearing a jacket this morning (inside of course) and after lunch, when I stepped outside, I began to wonder about myself.  How could I be cold with over 100 degree weather outside my front door?  Two hours later the weather changed once again, this time to a nice storm.  I attempted pictures, but, if I wanted to keep the camera functioning, I couldn't be as adventurous as I had wished.  I am so looking forward to when I can say 'Guess what y'all? It is 70 degrees outside!'.  That's a Southerner's way of saying 'Fall'.

In the meantime, school here at my house has been in progress for two weeks!  I won't roll my eyes and say 'I don't like school', but I will say 'I really don't know where Summer went'.  At the moment I think most everyone feels that way.  I am enjoying school though quite unable to believe that I have started High-School! Well, I will enjoy it all I can, counting the days until memorable events...

The beauty after the storm.

Jewelry Making

About a year ago I went over to my friend's house for the day, and while I was there she introduced me to jewelry making. Ever since, I've been gung-ho. Christmas presents, birthday presents, and birthday money were the times for requests for supplies of this sort. So, like I said, ever since, I've been caught. I love it! I really do. And I am always looking for someone to shower jewelry upon. My friend had her birthday last week and I jumped on the opportunity. While I made her some (purple) earrings, I decided to also make some for another friend (green). I have some more people in mind for the future. I can't wait!
