Great Savings on Photo Printings

I guess almost every digi-scrappers these days have DSLRs or P&S cameras already to capture all the special moments. I reckon owning one is a necessity already because aside from the fact that you don’t need to worry about buying films before you can shoot, you can immediately see or preview all you taken photos.

fter that all you have to do now is just pick photos that you wanted to be printed, put in an album or for paper scrappers they can scrap it and turn them into work of art once again. You can save a lot on photo printing by using Photo Works coupon codes, printing start at 9cents. Just imagine all the savings that you can get, you can even buy other stuff with your savings.

Just remember, Christmas is coming and the more we save the more we can shop.
So the next time you want to shop at to buy a new digi cam don’t forget to use coupons as well.

FREEBIE: Whimsical school-themed doodles

Please forgive me if lately I have not been sharing my own digiscrapping layouts, blame it on my busy work schedule. There times that I need to sleep at 4 am already for 2 days and oh dear that is too much for my health. When times like that arise, my ever reliable cucumber slices are ready to keep my eyes from puffing. I can’t prevent late night working so I am guessing that I also need to have eye cream just in case.

In the meantime, I found this nice Whimsical school-themed doodles freebie from Three Paper Peonies She’s been generous in sharing tons of freebies. Grab it at her blog.

Photography Quotes / Photo Quotes

I stumbled upon some Photography Quotes and I wanted to share some.

1. You don't take a photograph, you make it. - Ansel Adams

2. A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you. - Brigitte Bardot

3. There is 3 key things for good photography: the camera,lighting and... photoshop - Tyra Banks
4. When you see such photos, you can't help but wonder at just how sweet and sad and innocent all moments of life are rendered by the tripping of a camera's shutter, for at that point the future is still unknown and has yet to hurt us, and also for that brief moment, our poses are accepted as honest. - Douglas Coupland

5. You’ve got to push yourself harder. You’ve got to start looking for pictures nobody else could take. You’ve got to take the tools you have and probe deeper. – William Albert Allard

6. A photographer's main instrument is his eyes. Strange as it may seem, many photographers choose to use the eyes of another photographer, past or present, instead of their own. Those photographers are blind. - Manuel Alvarez Bravo

7. Photographic success is not just about getting the equipment. And you can't market yourself without a portfolio. If you love photography enough, the equipment will come, the portfolio will result and if you enjoy the process, successful will follow. You will evolve your own "formula". - Bruno Schreck

8. ...the eye and the camera see more than the mind knows. - Nathan Lyons

9. When you look at life "through the cameras eye", it helps you to appreciate the things you normally would have over looked. It helps to slow you down and enjoy life for the moment. - Scott Rhodes

10. Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph. – Matt Hardy

Wazzup With my Project 365 Photos and Layouts??

I am a digiscrapper at heart and no way I could turn back to this great hobby of mine. It keeps me sane when all things turns chaotic. It serves as my therapy when I am all burdened up or it makes me relax when I am stressed out or make me refocus.

I started my Project 365 this year and every day I see to it that I hold on to my DLSR to capture any moment or things that can somewhat represent my day. Oh gosh today, I think I am going to miss taking a photo. I was not in my good mood today and the weather is just so gloomy that it didn't allow me to give enough inspiration on what to take.

I am already half way through my photo-a-day so I am not giving it up too. Just today, I wanted to do many things at one time. I wanted to scrap, I want to edit and put watermarks on my photo a day that I have not posted on my flickr account yet, I am finishing some tasks and I wanted to make the baptismal invites that a customer ordered late afternoon.

My day is handful but I don't want to stress myself in doing all of those in just one sitting or else I will be stress out again and oh dear I don;t want that to happen. Much worse is that if for some instance I will faint from too much work, I will hate the incident when someone will administer a
Philips AED to me to just to revive me. Yay that's morbid.

Anyway, hopefully tomorrow when my sched is a bit lax, I will try to start a little bit of pic editing so I canpost my Project 365 photos here once again.

Throw a Christmas Bash and Have a Lot of Fun!

I guess you might be wondering why I am posting about Christmas already since it’s only August. Funny thing is that, just this morning when I flicked through the channels, one of the station id of the TV station is Christmas in August. Upon seeing that it made me smirk for a while bec. it has bells and candles and a Christmas song. Wow maybe they are cooking up something for Christmas huh.

Anyway, as much I wanted to make Christmas come too soon, I bet you’ll agree with me that we still need to save so that we can buy lots of gifts. We also need to prepare and look for some nice Christmas Party Invitations if we are going to throw a big Christmas bash. I know this will be so fun especially to the kids where their eyes light up while opening their presents.
Invitations Christmas

Proj. 365: Rainy Day

wild mushrooms? ba ito
Just take a look at the wild mushrooms (??) that have sprouted over at the dead tree at our backyard. No wonder it has grown because it's been raining since last night and the weather is so conducive for sleeping, lazing around and eating. We have a typhoon again right now but our province is not so much affected.

I just heard in the news that it's a rainy weekend. I went outside today and the road is so slippery.
