My final portfolio

The digital part anyways. I've learned not to procrastinate. It's not worth it in the long run! Nothing like freaking out at 2am the morning your project is due because your printer is begging for more ink! And walmart doesn't sell it. And nothing else opens before your 8am class.

But it's done. I wasn't thrilled with the quality of some of the prints - they turned out a bit dark. But obviously not enough ink to reprint either. Besides, I needed a little bit of sleep - it was hard enough waking up 3.5 hours after I went to bed!

Decisions decisions, and school is almost DONE!

I'm down to the last week, and I couldn't be happier! I'm very much looking forward to a more relaxed summer (school wise at least!).

I'm finishing up my photography final, and can't decide which 10 pictures to use, and if I should do black and white or color (and all 10 have to be the same). Some I adore in black and white, and some I adore in color.

I had a hard time shooting these. Eric and I drove 280 miles to get them. I had planned on using some I had taken earlier in the semester until I found out that it wouldn't be allowed, so I drug Eric out of work (he didn't complain!) Friday to go drive around all day.

We also took the kids out for a drive/hike today, and saw some amazing places! But my camera battery was dead. I about cried! It wasn't when I put it in the bag, so a button must have been pressed or something to completely drain it. Some of the places were an hour away, and with the project due Wednesday morning, I'm not going to be able to get back out there to shoot some more for it. But I'm definitely going again! And the kids were great. Even after some tummy issues this morning, they didn't complain about the long drive, and enjoyed the hike!

So, here they are. Want to help me to decide which are the 10 best? And color or black and white??

Happy Easter

Went to Dad's house. Food was good, ate way too much of course, and brought a ton home. At least I don't have to cook tomorrow!! Kian was way too cute with his eggs. He's been playing with some the other kids have had the last few days, and he thought it was very cool to have his own.

I'm a sewing failure though! After completely rearranging bedrooms and my sewing space, I ran out of time and motivation. No one got even one handmade item for Easter. No clothes, no toys, nothing. But it's ok. I think they liked the abundance of candy more anyways :)
