Basement Tales

  • Hubby took the week off to work on basement. Sanding and mudding, craft room is done and playroom is almost done.
  • Built some built in shelving for under the television, and popup bench for storing blankets.

Countdown to 30 – My family tradition is to see the latest Disney or kids movie at the theater on Christmas Eve. We started with the Little Mermaid 26 years ago and have only missed one year since. This year we will go see Frozen. As I become more of a grownup, I am wondering if I need to give up my chance to go see the movie each year and stay home to get stuff done.

Photographing Your Knits

  • This week I talk about White Balance and how finding the settings for it on your camera or phone can make a big difference in the color quality and consistency of your photos
  • If you have some natural light but not enough, use a reflector to double the amount of light on your project
