In case anyone stopped by here I also wanted to let you know that I have a new blog Sanukipity Creatives. Come check me out. I don't even know what happened to all the photos and such from this blog but what a mess it looks.

I know I haven’t posted over here in awhile, I haven’t been creating anything other than photography lately. And I am so happy that I am up to 100 followers now too. That is why I am posting this at both blogs.
I am seeking advice, help, ideas, suggestions. Whatever you want to call it.
I want to start a website. I have a cool name for it all picked out. I sort of know what I want to do with it. I want to be able to attach my blog to it as one of my menu links.
I don’t want to pay the $12 a month that Squarespace charges even though I like the set-up they have.
I like how Karen has her’s set up so that you click on Project and can see all her different projects at Chookooloonks. I love how Mighty posted her life list and under it she shares how she accomplishes her list at Mighty Girl.
Those being things I want to be able to navigate in my website, it is very important for me for it to be clean and crisp. I also don’t want to spend a lot on it as right now it is just me and no sponsors or anything yet. Without giving away my idea, it is all about happiness and serendipity.
I tried using pages on Blogger once upon a time and had a really hard time adding to the extra pages and it still looking clean.
So, this is where you all reading this come in. I am up for any, all and bits of any suggestions and advice. Thank you. =)

Since I decided to start taking my camera everywhere with me, I had bought a bigger purse to carry it in. This was really starting to weigh on me though. I have been searching on Etsy for the bag I wanted. I found this
but it comes with a $85 price tag. I am still paying off the camera, I can’t afford that bag.
I was so happy when Cindy at Cameras and Chaos shared her new project yesterday.
I went to Kohl’s today (I wanted to go to TJ Maxx but it is on the other side of town). I didn’t want a purse as tall as Cindy’s because I only wanted to be able to put my camera, with lens attached, in it and have a little pocket for maybe wallet when out shopping. I mean to take it everywhere (except work). I left with this purse for only $31.65 (and $10 Kohl’s cash)
I picked up a piece of padding for $3 and material on sale for $5 (I ended up only needing a half of yard). As I have mentioned before, I can’t sew well. So I cut out my three pieces of padding and covered them each separately, using FabricTac to seal it all up. I then used small pieces of Velcro to attach the three pieces. I love it. I didn’t even take the purse in with me to buy the fabric.
Thank you Cindy for the great idea.

It is a lot harder to edit your blog there than here. I went through themes like no other trying to find one that left the pictures the right size and didn't cut into the sidebar. I have played around with the fonts, also not done like Blogger. I think it looks crisp and clean, let me know: http://lilisview.wordpress.com/

I tell you, I am seriously loving me some photo challenges. Another new one to me is and the theme this week is Cookies. I decided to make a trip to the mall and look in the luggage store for a camera bag that would actually hold my camera with lens attached. And while I was there I was going to take some pictures at the Tollhouse kiosk. I sadly learned, neither are there anymore. On the way home I stopped in Smiths and while deciding if I wanted to take pictures in the bakery aisle, I watched this lady cough all over everything so I decided to pick up some cookie and go. (Doesn’t hurt to have good cookies either.)

Did you know that Kevin and Amanda create fonts out of your handwriting? Just a thought as I have come across the handwriting challenge over at Vintage Wanna Bee. Here is my handwriting results (it has changed a lot over the years but the simplicity of it has stayed the same):
Here is my best face of February (it was hard to choose, but I wanted one I hadn’t posted before and this one jumped out at me). I also love how he is reflected in the water pooling under him:
