Home is a wonderful thing and you don't know that you are truly there until you are surrounded by those you love. My most dear and treasured times have been more amplified since coming back home. I am absolutely in love with my God, family, and community. Thank you Lord for coming to save me and thank you for giving us opportunities to celebrate your love. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Can you believe that it is all ready December??? I can't, and to be honest I love this time of the year because it means being with the people I love more then ever. Call me a mushy dork but, I love the idea of family coming together. Plus, the Holidays (capitalized on purpose) at my house are most lovely and entertaining at the same time. I am still in London right now and have about 6 days left here. Wow!! That is unbelievable when I think about the fact that I have been here for all most three months.
I will be trying some new things out once I get home. I will be making myself some vintage clothes out of recycled clothes which should be fun and frustrating at the same time ((gotta love the adventurous woman in me)) hehe. I can hand sew but, I have yet to learn how to properly use a sewing machine. I have made a long skirt before out of old jeans that I could not fit or that had holes in them. That turned out very nice and lot's of people have been asking me to make them one. Gosh! could they really afford me? hehe.
Okay so I had my final convener (basically a meeting for art presentations; for those that don't know), and it went very well. The only thing that I would have changed was how I presented it. I did not have enough money at the time to print out the photos so, I had them on my laptop. That was the only thing that they critiqued and other then that they loved the photos. I do have to say that being out here I have gotten more confident with the camera and have learned more about my shooting style and bringing a person's personality out from the camera. If you want to see the photos I presented in my final presentation just follow this link http://decorumphotography.wordpress.com/ This will take you straight to me and my friend's blog. That is the name of our photography business. I will also have some other pictures I have taken on http://grayscalephotography.blogspot.com/ . Don't mind the title because that is not my personal business anymore. I just can't change the name of it. So many pictures, so little time. I just have an essay and a taxi to book and I am good to go! For now, you can enjoy some of my silliness. Later friends!
