Killer headline to hook you in....Act like a kid...

 I grabbed my yellow  plastic container of bubble mix which I bought from the Two Buck Shop and spent half an hour blowing bubbles and photographing them. 

I added a  half a tsp of glycerine to the mix so when they landed on branches they stayed intact longer.

 Did you know that it is practically impossible to get a good "bubble in the air"" shot with one hand on your bubble maker and the other on your SLR?  I'll be calling on one of my  photogenic kid volunteers to help me out soon.

 Feel free to send me some of your own shots and I'll post them on this blog.

My email addess is jkeen@clear.net.nz

If you are the type of person who is really busy with work, family commitments and endless dishes you may be thinking, why doesn't she get a life?

 Hasn't she anything better to do than waste time doing kids stuff and sounding like Pollyanna on speed? 

The short answer is no...

Play is powerful.

I will be suggesting you do some pretty wierd things (right brain activities)  in the future to "evoke your muses," so be prepared.

Once  I slipped into the habit of taking my digital  camera everywhere with me, life has become just one big, fat, pavalova of a photo opportunity.

If you have an addictive personality like me, it's a way of getting a healthy hit; much better than any high you'll ever get from smoking, drinking, eating chocolate or watching episodes of Coronation Street.

 I have given up heading  this blog with what are you doing creatively today ..I'm doing blah, blah,..because it's starting to bore and iritate me.

 I am going to try to come up with some killer headlines to hook you in.

Did it work?

Love this, "...life became just one big, fat, pavalova of a photo opportunity."
I'm getting back in to taking my camera with me every where again. Why wait until you're on holiday? Or for a family event? Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes and you just have to be ready for it!
Have a great weekend, Janet! :)

Hi Janet

Today I made a special thank you card and envelope. Found a cute dragonfly sticker to seal the envelope flap. I'm 10 pages into a fictional account of my Danish ancestors' arrival in New Zealand (1872). The sun's shining, tuis swoop past my window, all's well in my world.
