I have a secret……

I got some exciting news recently and very soon I should be able to share it with you.  But for now I just wanted to let you know that I have some great things in the works!  And one of the things I am excited about is my new challenge at SUN.  I started to design by joining a design challenge.  And looking back, it was a pretty bad kit.  But it got me started on the path I am on.  And I was so very proud of it at the time.  I want to inspire others the same way.  So each month I am going to be hosting a color palette design challenge at SUN.  I truly hope that you join us.  Just click the palette for more details.

Oh, and BTW…..you will never miss any important SUN information again if you join the Wonder Girl’s on Twitter or our store’s page on Facebook!

Welcome to my new blog!

Filed under: Uncategorized — danisphotos365 @ 11:17 pm

My poor Blogger blog was so neglected.  I never seemed to find the time or ambition to fight with the inept way to add photos and various other things that bugged me.  Having played around a bit with other WordPress blogs as a test I decided to make this my new home.  Though I have transferred my old posts here I will apologize for the fact that I have deactivated all of my old freebies except those that are part of my SUN collabs.  I feel that I have come so far since I joined Sunshine Studio and I only want the best for my visitors.  I promise you that I will replace those freebies with new and better ones so check back!!  I will also be making this place a bit prettier in the near future.  So now I will stop boring you and just say Welcome!

My friend Julie is not only a great ADSR partner but a fantastic designer. She has just released a gorgeous (and I am not just saying that!) kit called Lovebug Serenade and I just had to show it to you!

Isn’t it beautiful? I just love it! And I got my hands on it a little early because I just knew it would be perfect for my Challenge 3 ADSR LO. Look how great this turned out…

My poor neglected blog :sigh:. Life was insane during December and I am still trying to catch up. I also started a new blog for my 365 project, so please come visit me there. I promise I’ve been better about posting there than I have been here.

I also joined ADSR with Julie from Julie.Itis. as my partner. I am finding it challenging but it is so nice to scrap again. I have been SO busy that I haven’t had time to scrap,design or anything.

Here are our first layouts from the first challenge. I’m linking them to the gallery in case you want to check out the credits from these awesome kits.

Ice Storm!

Filed under: Uncategorized — danisphotos365 @ 2:59 pm

Well, my area got hit really hard by an ice storm the past few days. I mean REALLY hard. Mostly all of my county and the neighboring one lost power. There are trees down everywhere and power lines across the roads. Now that it’s starting to melt there are flooded roads all over. It’s quite a mess.

Thursday night we lost power at my house. And no power means no heat! So I spent the night laying in bed worrying about whether my kids were warm enough, and listening to branches and tree snapping right outside my windows and hoping none of them hit the house.

By the time we woke up in the morning around 6 the house was down to a brisk 50 degrees. The County had been declared in a state of emergency. And things were not looking good in terms of power coming back any time soon. I took the dog out for a walk and surveyed some of the damage. Of course you know I had to take the camera right?

This first shot is the tree right outside my window that I had to hear snapping and cracking all night. Check out the huge branch that is speared straight into the ground!

At one point I heard a huge crack and a crash outside my daughters windows. I ran over to check things out but it was too dark to see. She was safe and that’s what mattered at that point. In the morning I found the source…

This the view from the side with the window I tried to look out that night.

This is a closeup from the other side. My landlord usually has his truck parked here but something told him to get up and move it in the middle of the night. Good thing, huh? Too bad he couldn’t have moved that fence too.

And I’m glad it didn’t fall to the left or my cute “reindeer” car would have been all squished. It’s hard to tell here but there is about a full inch of ice on this car! It took forever to chisel it all off.

And this one hit my landlords porch but thankfully didn’t do any damage thanks to the big bush taking most of the weight.

Too bad the tree didn’t fare as well. This was a gorgeous tree too. 😦

Strangely, in all that destruction there was so much beauty.

And this is my favorite. This is that gorgeous tree that we now have to cut down …

We ended up packing up some stuff and braving the roads to get to my parents house. They didn’t have power, but thanks to a propane heater they at least had heat. One of the first places that power was restored was the local shopping area so that people could at least get food and anything they needed so I headed there for coffee and to pick up some food that we could eat without needing to cook it.

It was a long day packed in a house with 6 bored people and no working toilets. We did have a battery powered radio for updates and some Christmas music at least. I got a call around 6 pm that my house had power back! I can’t tell you how relieved I was! However, as of the time I am writing this (almost 11 am the next morning) my parents and many others still have no power. So if it keeps up the tables may turn and I may be packing a bunch of people into my rather small apartment. Oh well, we do what we have to, right?

I think I’m done!

Filed under: Uncategorized — danisphotos365 @ 4:09 am

You know…it took WAY longer than I would have thought to redo the whole blog from scratch but I think it was worth it! What do you think?

I used my collab kit with Madame Wing called Azure Whispers.
