Winter's a Hoot

I know, I know, I've been a blog slacker lately. Does that make me a slogger? I don't think I can entirely blame being busy for my lack of posting, although I really have been quite busy (no more pear pictures for a while, I promise). I've been feeling a bit in the photographic doldroms lately, that is, not exactly having a love affair with my point-and-shoot camera. We've had our fun, of course, but it was never meant to be a long-term relationship. I've finally made the plunge in getting a digital SLR camera, meaning I need to relearn all that fun photography stuff I learned in high school and then promptly forgot when my old 35mm SLR camera died on a trip to Hawaii and was never replaced. My new camera is presently in the mail on its way to me, so hopefully I can unveil beautiful pictures taken with it early in the new year. In the meantime:

I've been making a few little owls:


There's just something about orange and gray that I can't resist



This little gal makes me smile:



And this one is made with some adorable ultra-retro prints:



You can find my owls here, and also at my shop.

We're gearing up for the holidays (lots of cookie-baking and cookie-eating, oh yeah, and some sledding and gift-wrapping--not many pictures, alas, camera woes) and loving this midwest winter. Stay warm (or cool, depending of course on where you are)!
