A Reason to Cheer

See - this year's first outdoor photograph!
No more pictures with computer cables, bottoms of floral 
curtains and random chair legs in the background. No more 
crouching amidst toys in the only corner of the house 
with any decent winter sunlight. No more photo-editing 
to balance the hideous indoor lighting color tint. Today 
I stepped out on our deck, in bare feet, with the camera. 
Spring! Spring! Spring! Natural light! Sunshine! 
Can you feel the exuberance? Can you sense the liberation? 

Ah, but you want to know what that photo is all about.

This is my latest experiment - freezer paper stenciling. 
Very fast, very easy, very instant-gratification, very addictive
We have a birthday coming up in our family and I was looking 
for a different medium for a gift (no, he probably won't 
enjoy a set of cardboard traffic signal lights).

More in a later post. Probably a much later post, 
since the outdoors is calling to me. 

A note to faithful readers who came aboard because you 
liked the sewing stuff: fear not - my sewing machine and 
I are still friends. Some very colorful projects coming up soon.

  1. Yet another project I can't wait to try. I even bought some freezer paper last time I was out.

    I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

    And now I too shall go outside and bask in the sunshine and ability to be outside with no coat!


Thank you for talking to me! If you have a question, I might reply to it here in the comments or in an email.
