Productive snow day.

I refused to sit at home and take more pictures of water on Wednesday, so instead I headed to Hobby Lobby (never even heard of it until earlier that day), picked up some craft supplies and went over to Jes'. Well thanks to my friend, Jenna, who always posts her cute crafts and the tutorials they came from, I was able to make a super cute headband and my sister made a really cute necklace. The tutorial for the necklace Jesica made is here, within that link is the link to a headband similar to the one I made...I decided on a regular headband with three flower/pom poms/whatever you call 'em rather than one. This lady (little miss momma) has some pretty cute crafts/tutorials and is really cute herself. I decided to take pictures of my new craft but had a similar problem to the one I did with the water pictures, the lenses! I had 2 wide lenses, one was lost, another stolen (long, sad story) so now I'm forced to use my telephoto lenses which are WAY zoomed in so it makes it really difficult to try to hold the camera and take a picture of yourself at the same time. Now that I've finished my rant I have a disclaimer, of course. One, I'm not and don't proclaim to be nearly as cute as "little miss momma". Two, I will not be taking nearly as many pictures of myself as she does, I feel weird enough with these three. And three, the photographer in me needs to say this. I know the picture on the left makes my hair look a little purple, BUT the picture was dark, like almost completely black, so when I lightened it up enough to be able to see me, this is the outcome. The first picture I took in my living room fighting with my tripod to get me in focus and in the frame, the second two were in the bathroom. The lighting is quite different in these two places, obviously. Ok enough disclaimers, let's see the dang headband already!

PS- I think next time I'll do a little less flower, it's a little big. That could just be because I'm new to the whole headband thing and usually think they look terrible on me; however, this one is growing on me. I will be making more:)

To conclude, we also made and ate cookies on this productive snow day and went to dinner with friends. Wednesday was a success.
