Eye Candy Friday…is this thing on?

Whoa time really got away from me this year! No posts from July to December is quite a gap – I’m sorry for the neglect! I’ve been super busy with Stitched by JessaLu, every year it seems I double my sales (which is awesome!) which means I double my workload (which is stressful but awesome!) which means something has to give and apparently this year it was the blog. and vacuuming.  I’d promise to try to do better but we all know how that ends up. ;o)

So to move on to what this post is actually about, my boss (yep that’s me) decided I was worthy of a new camera!

Look what I found under the tree! ;) My boss (yes that's me) decided I am worthy of a camera upgrade. This thing is SO SHINY. ❤️ it's a Pentax K-30 - the body is new, the glass is old but still awesome #earlychristmas #pentax #shiny

That’s a shiny new Pentax K-30 – I am in some serious love with this camera. It’s SO SHINY. The glass is not new, I only purchased the camera body, but I don’t care, the whole thing has me all happy to take pictures again (my old Pentax started having focusing issues, it has gone to get looked at and possibly fixed and R may have a new camera). Wanna see pretty pictures? Okay!

*sigh* I love my new camera. I did no post-processing on those photos, they are posted as shot.

Happy ECF – I’m hoping to talk to you again before (or on) Christmas! ;o)



Jazzy the Elf wishes you a Happy Holiday!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!

As per usual, I’ve been too busy to blog but I do have a few projects that I need to post about so you’ll be hearing from me again soon!

Happy Holidays!


…the one with all the accidental gardening.

I haven’t had any time to garden this year. This means that my veggie garden is completely fallow for the 2nd year in a row, my tomato buckets are growing some pretty impressive weeds and the rest of my patio looks like it has been completely reclaimed by nature.

However, the morning glories appear to have a mind of their own. While I was out there earlier this afternoon (this would be on Thursday since I’m writing this Thursday night) I noticed some color other than weedy green and it inspired me to go get the camera to take a photo of something other than a box bag:

ECF - Morning Glories

Isn’t that pretty? How about another angle:

I love when Mother Nature surprises me in a good way, don’t you? :o) Have a great weekend, everyone!
