Growing Up

My lil girl is growing up so fast.

My husband comes to me the other day with the etcha sketch. On it was a drawing of a face and hand from my lil girl.

I'm so proud of her.

Now on Facebook

A friend created a facebook page for her business. I thought "what a fantastic idea!" So I did too.

See the side bar for the link, or search for MiCreations via the search tool on Facebook, on and on my website as well which is just in case you didn't know what it was.

Bill Gates and the Real World

This was sent to me as a email, but it was too good not to share, so enjoy.

Love him or hate him, he sure hits the nail on the head with this! Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!

Rule 2 : The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3 : You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4 : If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5 : Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

If you agree, pass it on.

If you can read this - Thank a teacher!

I've made some changes to my price list on my website

The photo gallery is still password protected, however you can still see some examples of my work there and here as well.

I can definitely say that I am improving taking portraits and candids. I'm really enjoying working with the kids. My kids sure do get a work out with me practicing on them. But it means I can trial different techniques as well.
