make wonderful, beautiful things

Christmas is Coming….

The goose is getting fat! It seems like I type that earlier and earlier every year, but I can assure you that is already past the middle of July here, and Christmas is just FIVE MONTHS away! How crazy is that? I still have broken ornaments from last year over there in the craft area to be fixed. Also! I did not make personalized ornaments last year, and I mean to get on that this year. Hell-o!

Anyway! Back to the point, which is NOT my lack of Christmas Organizing Skills, but rather personalized Christmas Cards and the photos that go with them. Yep. Pi-chers for those of you who speak southern, like me. I found a boatload of articles on how to get good Christmas cards shots, and other tips, like this gem:

Flowers are wonderful subject matter for photographs. To create a dew-dropped masterpiece, place drops of water or glycerin on the leaves or petals. Glycerin can be found at most pharmacies and won’t dry up as quickly as water.

Color me open-mouthed, because it never occurred to me that those flowers we see in photos were anything other than legitimately dew-kissed. Sometimes my own naivety amazes me. Rube=Cass or something, I guess. Anyway, go read. I’ll meet you there with a glass of iced tea, ok?
