A vote for a Vote for Everybody! remember this lovely lady I wrote about in my last post?

Well, she had gotten herself all the way up to finalist in the American Crafts Mini Book Challenge on Facebook!

Please please PLEASE take a sec and click over to this photo album to vote for her. She is the last picture, so make sure you don't click 'like' for the whole album, that doesn't up my vote count.

Thank YOU! And, as the title of this post suggests, if I win I will share my loot with one of my fantastic blog readers! Just leave me a comment  to let me know you voted and I'll pick a name when I get my PRIZE (positive thinking, I might be a little competitive ; ))

Thanks again!

Making My List, Checking It Twice

Hey there,

I'm blogging today from my sister's house in Springfield. My immediate family is together this weekend to celebrate Christmas. So far, it's been the best weekend-eating, watching movies, playing. All good stuff.

Since we are exchanging presents today I am all finished with my shopping. How about you?

While making my list (for Santa) I stumbled upon a few fun gift idea I thought I would pass along. The Selphy printer is the only one that actually made it on my list, but I would be totally happy to get any of these things!

Buy the Fisheye, Macro, Wide Angle and Telephoto Phone Lenses at the Photojojo Store!
Fisheye, Macro, and Wide Angle lenses for your Iphone/iPod. Pretty much everything at the Photojojo store would be awesome for photography nerds, beginners, stalkers....I also like this, this, and this.

Seems like little lenses for your camera phones are popping up everywhere this year. File this one under the 'IhaveabsolutelynoideawhybutIhavetohaveit' category:

Holga iPhone lenses

Explosive Eighteen. Janet Evanovich. Be prepared to laugh, alot, out loud. I've read the entire series and they're all great. Note: this is not a series you have to feel like you have to read every single one in order. The author does a great job of catching you up on the important points, and really, the stories aren't that deep anyway. Just good fun mysteries.

Vogue: The Covers. I wish I had heard about this book earlier, it would have definitely been on my list. Serious photography and fashion eye candy from an iconic magazine.

Royal Weddings and Royal Affairs. Both read like historical reality show series. The author has a fantastic voice and a way of making all these juicy stories come to life.

I might have a few more to suggest before the big day, but I hope I gave you a few ideas!
