I'm an accountant by day and crafter at night. I love a decorating challenge, floral arrangements are probably my favorite part when decorating a wedding/party. I'm an independent Longaberger consultant and avid collector (check out my Longaberger website).

My favorite hobby is scrapbooking! Of course scrapping got me into photography, digital photography to be exact. I quickly discovered that I LOVE taking pictures! I just got the Nikon D300....words don't measure up to this camera - well worth the $$. I crochet while I watch tv and mess around on the computer whenever I get a few moments.

I guess nothing is ever really free

As I've already shared with you I signed my father up for a "FREE" continuing education class in "Beginning Digital Photography" and gave him my old Nikon D80 to use in the class. In addition to the class being FREE for him due to his age, it got him out of the house and is teaching him the in's/out's of digital photography. He has a film Nikon but doesn't know the first thing about what to do with a digital pic once he takes it......

Well, I learned last night that nothing is ever really free. He found a magazine/order book from an online site I order most of my lenses from and has picked out a few nowhere near FREE lenses that he "might just need" hint-hint. I'm happy that he's found a hobby that he enjoys and is able to do but I have proved the old adage that nothing in life is ever really free! Oh well, looking on the bright side - I know what to get him for Christmas!
