So Cold Sew Crafty Saturday

No guys seriously...it's flippin' freezing!   I can't even tell you what I have my heater set on right now cause if my dad, by chance ever happened to read this it would kill him!  But since I spent most of the week on the couch with my computer under a blanket while the kids built stuff out of the couch pillows...it's their little game...they take all the pillows off "the left and right couch"  ( the big couch is for mommy)  and build houses with them.  Anyway, I don't have anything crafty to show you and since I have been working on picking my Stylish Blogger award recipients I figured that would just substitute, but I do have some seriously awesome pics I took of all this ice today to share with you.  I love how these came out!  And guess what!!!  They aren't even edited!  Oh, yes!  I am so learning my knew camera!...Thanks Mandy & Allie!

























So what do you think?  I can take it...if you like em that is...hehe...no seriously,  I have taken classes, but that was years ago and to be honest I didn't pay attention, but I have been picking up things here and there since I started blogging that I am remembering from the classes, but I would still apprieciate any tips on technique from you experts out there...this new camera requires a lot more fiddling with then the old one did! 

I definately went a little crazy this morning playing with the settings, iso, f stop, etc.  I took 187 pics in about an hour...told ya I went a little crazy!  I love taking nature/landscape scences though, and since this NEVER happens in Louisiana, I made sure to take full advantage!  Nature & landscape really are my favorites...aside from the kiddos that is.  ;)

Your photos are beautiful! I never realized how intricate and gorgeous ice formations could be! I especially loved the chain link fence and the berries.

I hope it warms up for you soon! I was barefoot and sweating in jeans and a tanktop today. ;)

Okay, I wanted to tell you this before but I was in a hurry....your ice pictures rock! I've been playing with the settings on my camera too trying to learn what works. I love your pics.

Also, please, don't worry, I totally embrace my geekdom. In a big way. I'm a total nerd and am very proud. I think today I'll do a layout with some pictures of me in MY huge glasses. Yep, I wore huge glasses too. And I was in marching band and winterguard. Geek! :-) We geeks must stick together. lol

Those are beautiful!! Especially the close-ups of the flowers and berries. Isn't it a shame that something so beautiful can be so dangerous?

WoWee!! Ya'll got alot more than we did in town...must be those wide open country spaces!! BEAUTIFUL pictures...I tried to take one of my pitiful little bush covered in ice...haven't even got it off my camera yet :( And we had a couple of icicles, but my girls got them down (somehow?) and was eating them like a popsicle before I realized what it was...EWWW!! AND I just got my downstairs heater working YESTERDAY...so I've been hibernating upstairs and not getting ANYTHING accomplished because of all the shivering...HA!! Stay warm today!
