This is Spring?

On Friday it was 60 degrees here! I thought for sure Spring was on it's way. But mother nature said NO. Saturday morning I woke up to snow. I did manage to snap this picture of the Cardinals eating in my yard. I think they wondered what happened too because they were on the feeder all day long as if they were stocking up for winter.

Pink Popper!

This just in Lanyardlady's shop on Etsy! She amazes me, I make the simple bead and she makes the fabulous lanyard! Love her style and choices of coordinating beads.
You go girl!

The BSS Mode!

Ha! I'm not a camera dummy! After calming down and reading Cherin's post, i got out the handy dandy user manual and guess what? It's the BSS mode. Yes my friends a BSS mode. Which means best shot selector! Now go figure.

So, I have taken a picture of one of the beads and you tell me if it's good.

My Nikon Coolpix Camera

Ok, so I decided a month ago to buy a new camera thinking it would take better pictures. NOT.

I am contemplating throwing my camera across the room. I never thought a camera could cause high blood pressure... Seriously, I hate it.

All week long I have been working on new lentil beads that I have put alot of time into. Each bead is sanded by 3 different grits of sandpaper and buffed. Then I put a high gloss finish on them and they actually look like glass. Excited, I wanted to get the pictures and list on Etsy. NOT.

The camera is on the macro mode and no matter what I do it will not focus. Every picture is blurry. Changed the lighting and it is worse. I'm not sure if it is because they are so glass like. I don't have a clue what to do.

So in order to control my Irish temper, I decided I would write about it and maybe someone out there has the same problem and can tell the camera idiot what to do. Oh, I know, got to the bookstore and buy Camera for dummies.
