This is something I have a hard time with. It's very hard for me to even get out of bed on most days. Every day I tell myself, "ok this is what you are going to do today". And you know what I never do. Unless I must, like no clean clothes: do the laundry, can't afford to eat out: cook food.

You want to hear something funny. I eat McDonald's. Yes I know it's bad but, I can't help my self. So here's the funny part. I rarely buy processed foods at the grocery store. You will never see "Lean Cuisine", "Hot Pockets" or any other types of these things in my refrigerator. Nope. I like to feel like I'm doing something good for myself when I cook for me. When I go out though It's party time.

Test Shots

I went out with the new camera today. I wanted to get the last remaining light. I just went to the corner of my block. Harlem is just full of beautiful architecture.

This one is just some bare branches. I love bare branches. Whenever I see them in at the florists I want to bring some home.

The ones below are of the church across the street from my building. There are more but when you take digital images you have to manipulate them in order to upload them.

Oh! One more. There are 2 special men in my life: Olmo & Coolie. Olmo is hard to photograph so here is coolie. Coolie weighs about 15-18 lbs. So, he's a big boy.

EOS Canon Rebel XTi

It arrived today. Too bad it's Monday cause I will not be able to devote a lot of time to it today. But, this weekend I'm going out.

I am so happy right now.

Weekend Work

I have been wanting to do some embellishing with the yellow fabric for some time now. This will be the weekend for me. The blue is quilted. I'm going to use it to line a handbag I cut out. I scored the tie-dye pieces by being in the right place at the right time.

Any who, I don't feel like going home. I'm gonna do one more thing then go to the new kinokuniya store that opened up the street.

Camera Update

My camera has shipped. Well, not actually but, Amazon has sent the shipping info to the shipping company. So, I will be tracking it like every minute. Join me as I pray it will be here by Friday.

My Work Situation

Wow! I am being overcome with fabric in my work space. I wish I could just wave a magic wand and make it disappear. My room at home is becoming that way too. What's a girl to do? I don't know. I cannot take pictures of my work space but I can of my home space. So when the camera comes I will photograph it.

Whew! I must now get to work.

Well I finally ordered the camera I've been obsessing over for at least 8 months. It should be in my hands by Tuesday the 18th of March.

Neo Sew Mama inspired me to get it after her camera's LCD screen died. I'm getting the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi.

New! Camera

The camera that I've wanted for the longest is now on it's way. I'm so happy.

This Blog was initially set up to document my crafts. Well, as I have not been very creative nor do I have a camera, I've decided to write about Brandy. Maybe I will get that camera and post pictures too. Who knows!

Vintage China For Tea

Wow! I've been spotting this in a few places. First in the current issue of Domino and now on various blogs. I guess I will be going to the last few remaining Flea Markets here in the city next weekend to look for some? It's always mix matched but, that appears to be the style.

Well it's time to get ready for the Complete Jane Austin on Channel 13.
