Quick Quick, half an hour Haloween Wreath

Today we (me & my kids) made a Haloween wreath .... loved it as it was a quick quick thingy.

It took me 1.5 hour to finish it with my kids, but you can make it in less then half time..... the formula is...
1.5 (total time) - 1 (kids pangaz) = 0.5 (half an hour)

It was a simple thing, I didnt have wreath so I used piece of old wasted card board box, I love making things from wasted stuff....

Piece of cardboard box

Drew a circle

circle cut out

cut another small circle in the big one...

Folded newspaper and attached it with masking tape.

Cover it well with tape, mine was not done yet.

used burlap strips

covered the wreath well.

done, covering.

then I cut a yellow moon & a bat from felt and attached them on wreath.

Used a black ribbon to hang it on my door

that is how this little thing looked on our door...

It was a good quick haloween activity for me & my kids...

Mom's first photoshoot with Nikon D-90

I havent blogged for quite some time... as my dearest Kodak camera refused to work any more after a year of hardships.... (you cant imagine what my kids have been doing with it) So I bought Canon A2300.... I was really disappointed with the results, though it has nice reviews on many sites... this was my 3rd digital camera & I was so exhausted that I checked on internet and went to buy Nikon D90, which is the flag ship of Nikon and their best selling SLR.

I know NOTHING about photography..... went for D90 as majority sites had excellent reviews about it. And YES! it is... I am completely falling in love with it.

I got it day before yesterday, & yesterday I took all these pictures...

My little model.... with dad...

Finally there is one descent picture

Before buying SLR I was concerened about one thing... If a professional camera like Nikon D90 is ok for a beginner.......... I tried to check on every possible site but didnt get answer... but now I have the answer... YES! it is very user friendly, and good choice for a beginner. I am sure I hardly know even 5% about its ability, but I am learning and its wise to invest once in good stuff rather then 100 time in bad stuff (the way i did....swab swab...)

Be happy....
