The Peanut and her parents...we're a little nutty.

Goal #1: Learn new camera. I am loving my new Sony a350. It is easy to use but I have a lot to learn. I need to practice on NON-moving objects. It is so hard to shoot Alexa sometimes. I really need to take a couple of hours to myself and just take a ton of pictures and get really comfortable with it. The Chief took this photo of me taking a photo of Alexa.
Goal #2: Get sewing! I finally took out my sewing machine after a long time. Don't you just love my pink vintage sewing box? My mom found that for me at an antique store. I actually got my sewing machine for Christmas last year and have not used it much. I took a couple of classes and made a tote bag but oddly enough I really didn't learn much. I was teaching myself and then ran into some snags ( literally), got frustrated and stuck it under the table. Today I took it out, successfully fixed the problem and made a cute tissue cover and a little pillow for Alexa. It wasn't much but I felt good about moving forward.
Goal#3: See that laundry basket on the floor? It is full of Ebay stuff! I have two baskets full of items I want to sell on Ebay. Mostly it is clothes that Alexa wore ( or didn't even get a chance to wear). My plan is to sell it all in a few weeks then use all the money to buy her new clothes that I am lusting over on Etsy!
I am a fortysomething mom of an amazing daughter that we adopted in 2006 from Hubei China. Alexa is 10 years old and lights up our lives everyday. I am married to my best friend, have 3 crazy dogs and love my life near the beach. We are soaking up life in CA in our new home and welcome you into our piece of paradise.
