It's all about me
Ahh- isn't it always??? But this week, it is specifically about me (or you obviously..) in the latest challenge at Design Dollies. It is so hard to do a LO about yourself - esp if you are like me and always behind the camera, so there are very few photos of me out and about.
I have written about how hard it is to be yourself but I am finding it easier as I get older. I have more confidence now than I have ever had I think. It helps that I am in a happy stage of life where everything is reasonably easy- touch wood. I am also finding it a bit easier to speak my mind - hmmm by the time I am a bit older, watch out - I will be one of those cranky old women who harps on about the good old days and mutters about young whipper snappers...
So pop on over and tell us something about yourself!!
Now on to more exciting matters - the random winner of my little blog candy give away for Trace's birthday blog hop is
tada - Julie B from Rainbow Days.
Yay Julie, also a member of the hard working Southern Girls DT. Gotta Love that!!
And lastly a few photos from our lovely little city. It is Canberra's birthday this week, 98 years old (a mere baby I know). To help celebrate, a couple of the major institutions have put on a light/picture display using their building as a canvas. The results are spectacular. WE toddled along on Saturday night, it was perfect weather wise and when INXS are giving an open air concert that you can hear quite easily any where in parliamentary triangle, just wonderful. Photos are quite dark though - still getting the hang of the new camera and haven't had time for post production work on them.
This is the National Library
And the Art Gallery (unfortunately only half the show was working the night we were there)
Old Parliament House
And lastly New Parliament House
I think I will be back later today as I have nearly finished this weeks Sketchy Thursday Sketch - a double Lo which is a stretch for me - we'll see how it goes.
