As part of getting back into using Daz Studio more I decided to enter the May Freebie Challenge over on the Daz 3d Forums (http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/21454/).

Since the new house won’t have a spot for a workshop and since I really can’t do woodworking anymore anyway I need to get rid of my major power tools. Here’s a list of the big stuff, I’m mainly putting this here for reference but if you’re interested in any of these and you know … Continue reading
I finished my photo book, Hint of Spring, last month and got the copy from Picaboo just before we left for Atlanta at the first of the month. I have to say I’m pretty impressed with the quality of the book. The paper is nice heavy stock and the pictures came out really crisp and … Continue reading

As I mentioned in the previous post I’m running short on subjects for my “Color Splash” photo book idea so this morning I decided to head over to the Volo Bog State Natural Area. We’ve lived here for almost 10 years now and this park is only a couple of miles from the house but … Continue reading
I’m not sure how it happened but I somehow ended up with a Groupon account. About a month ago the daily deal was $35.00 for $100.00 of goods from Picaboo. Since I was starting to get into photography and I had a couple of pictures I liked already I decided to bite. This morning I … Continue reading
I’ve attempted to start this blog numerous times over the last several years but I’ve never really had anything to blog about on a regular basis that I didn’t have a better spot for. Now, however, I’ve been getting into photography more and more (since Michelle insists I need a hobby to replace the woodworking … Continue reading
