Project 365 - Day 1

I have been so busy with lots of appointments as I am still not 100% ... there seems to be a never-ending number of appointments ... sigh ... the bright side of all this is that I am very very grateful for my dear friends (both real and online) and the talented medical personnel who look after me. Grateful could definitely be an understatement here...

Ali Edwards is a real inspiration to me; she inspired me to pick the word, Refresh as my 2009 word. Another inspiration from Ali is the Photo A Day and the scrappy world is abuzz over Creating Keepsakes Project 365. Here is my version of Project 365. For me, taking a photo a day is a matter of remembering to take my camera out to play and learn - so indulge me as I share some of my photos for the next 365 days!

So on January 1, 2009, I took my new Canon 40D for a test drive. Here is one of my faves of the day!

I distinctly remember cracking open the manual to learn how to set-up the self-timer as I wanted a very slow shutter speed to get a "glow" on the Christmas ornaments. I wanted to try out a photography tip from Kathy Thompson-Laffoley (yes, the same amazing lady that I am taking the Digi Divas and Just Shoot Me classes)...

You know I was so happy it worked, well, at least better than it had in the past! LOL

So I hope you will look forward to more picture sharing in the days and weeks to come!
