I've been tagged by Kim to list 7 things about me... I just did a similar list on my family blog (6 quirky things about me)

  1. I love the way books smell. I have to smell every book or magazine I read.

  2. I also like to feel book pages, my favorite is glossy paper. I like to rub the pages between my fingers.

  3. I have to shake the milk before I pour it on my cereal.

  4. I like syrup on my sausage, ham and bacon.

  5. Sometimes I feel like sharp things are going to poke my eyes and I have to pinch the bridge of my nose or cover my eyes with something heavy to relieve the sensation.

  6. I find that when I'm driving in the snow and nervous about pulling out in front of someone I lick my lips really fast.

  7. I always rip off the end of the toilet paper in public bathrooms before I take some for myself.

And since my husband doesn't like it when I blog without including a picture, here is a b&w conversion of Ben. I used PW's fresh and colorful then a black and white gradient map followed by PW's lovely and ethereal set around 60%.

I've been practicing making my own papers for backgrounds like greeting cards, etc. This one was a bunch of doodles I made. Not sure about it though. It seems fun but my creative side is lacking something. What do you think for a first time creation?

I've been practicing color popping actions trying to find one that does what I like. This one was a combo of sorts, what do you think?

{summer-captured} a challenge

Another challenge by Carin Davis Photography

Summer to me is climbing a tree....something I use to enjoy in my youth and now enjoy my own children doing. It's the first thing they ask to do when the snow melts, "Can we climb the tree?"

Summer to me is eating fresh corn on the cob...especially when it comes straight out of your very own garden. Grilled to perfection! YUM!!
