Here We Go!

This morning was full of different blog related projects.  It started off with a warm bowl of berries and oatmeal.

Then the projects started….

Since most of the pictures I take are in the evening, I made a light box to get better photos!

I followed Ashley’s instructions and it was very simple to make.  I needed a 3 clip on lamps, day light bulbs, a box and some tissue paper to assemble it.

Once the light box was done, I started assembling different bean layouts to work on a header for the blog.  I bought different types of beans (and other “bean” type items) at the store yesterday.

  • Black Beans
  • Pinto Beans
  • Kidney Beans
  • Black Eyed Peas
  • Split Peas
  • Yellow Rice
  • Jelly Beans

I took many different photos of the bean mixture.

I am happy with the final picture I ended up with on the blog header:

What do you think?

Back to today….The afternoon was spent relaxing.  We watched the Penguins win and now it’s time to cheer on the Steelers!  I’m curled up on the couch with a mug of hot chocolate in my Pittsburgh mug.

Well it’s about time for me to get ready to go cheer on the Steelers!  We are meeting some friends downtown to watch the game and enjoy some dinner and drinks.  After the game we are going to see “Identity Crisis.”

See you tomorrow for a recap of dinner and the play!

Here We Go Steelers, Here We Go!
