245 pictures.

I just uploaded 245 pictures from my digital camera. That's 245 pictures that need editing.
245 pictures on top of probably 500 I have sitting in my pictures folder already waiting to be edited. Yikes!

Here's a few already-edited photos of a recent altered Christmas house I made.The base was a plain ol' beat up little wooden house that I purchased on my very first trip to Goodwill (you can see the picture here). I've been meaning to do something with it ever since and I've been really inspired by Christmas lately. Not sure why that is, but I find I'm always most inspired to create Christmas lovelies in the spring. Is that strange? This is also very similar to the house I created for the Dozens this past Christmas. One may end up in the shop come this Christmas season, who knows.

In other news, yesterday morning, I was folding laundry and Tim was lying on the bed when all of a sudden he shouted, "Moose!". Wait. What!? I half-heartedly glanced out the window, thinking it was going to be one of those "made ya look" moments, but to my surprise, there were 2 huge, skinny horse-looking things strolling down the street. Yep, 2 baby moose. No antlers. Definitely babies. One jumped a fence in a neighbors yard and ran off while the other continued down the street and stopped in the middle of the road in front of our driveway. I rushed to get my camera, quickly snapped a super blurry photo from our bedroom window, when Tim then snatched the camera and ran out to the front door, to try to get a better one. Unfortunately, as soon as he opened the door (he wasn't very quiet about it), the moose looked over and ran off.All I have to show you is the super blurry photo. Sorry. It's still pretty cool though. And believe it or not, even though I've lived in Maine my entire life, these are the first moose I've ever seen in person, aside from the huge taxidermied stuffed moose at Cabella's (a hunting and fishing superstore), but that doesn't count.

Off to get some things done on the to do list. Stay tuned for a super exciting (at least I think so!) announcement coming soon! Sometime this week, perhaps? Just maybe.
