Do you ever feel Like ?

Do you ever feel like a lifetime is crammed into a whole week ?
Well It sure feels that way for me this week and I don't know why ..I haven't had any more to do than normal ..nothing extra or out of the normal happened this week, but it's felt like this week crawled by at a snail's pace and that a whole lot of everything got crammed into it.

One Fun thing that got crammed into this week that I hadn't planned on was a little gift to myself. Something I have wanted for a very long time but wouldn't splurge on .. as I don't often shop for myself. I'm a pretty simple gal and have always required very little. But this week I dove in head first and made a purchase ...

This Beautiful Cannon Rebel Camera.
 I have wanted to upgrade from my point and shoot camera for a few years now. But between cost and lack of knowledge on how to run one of these DSLR camera's I kept going to Costco or Sam's Club for groceries and staring at them as I walked by even stopping to pick them up and look them over and read the tags on them .. and then continued on with my shopping.

So this week as I headed into Sam's Club for my groceries .. I saw that this sweet camera was on Sale .. reduced by $100-  .. that along with the fact it came in a bundle pack with a nice large memory card an extra lens, carry case, etc. I was instantly Sold.

Now I still lack the knowledge of how to run this camera ...but that's going to all fade away over the next month as I enrolled in a couple classes that are going to teach me how to use this camera to a tee and I can't wait ..because I want to take some of those fabulous up close photographs I see here on the net ..but that my little point and shoot just wouldn't produce. Don't get me wrong my point and shoot has been awesome .. I have had it for 5 years and it's a bit clunky in size compared to the new slim line style P&S's today ..but it's taken a lot of great picts for me and has been durable and lasted a long time. I'll still be using it while I'm learning how to use the Rebel.

I have always loved photography fact I took a class way back in high school for it but became ill and ended up spending my last few years of HS .. in home study so I didn't get to complete those classes ..and didn't pursue it any further after that now I look forward to being able to do so all theses years later.

I'll let you all know how my classes go .. and I can't wait to start shooting some beautiful photo's and sharing them here on the blog with you all.

Come Join me tomorrow for ~N~ the Kitchen with Sweet Magnolias Farm...


  1. You'll love your new camera, Sara. I have a T2i and it's super easy to use. I just wish I'd had a cameral class to attend. I sort of muddle thru, but the rebels are great for close ups and low light photography. Besides you'll love being able to photograph your products for sale. It will make a huge difference. Have fun!!! Don't you wish you were in Missouri right now. It's been snowing!

  2. You are going to love going to a DSLR! Can't wait to see the beautiful pictures that you create behind the lens!

  3. Sara you will love your new camera! I have 3 canons and use them all. A DSLR, a small powershot that fits into my purse or pocket and a larger Canon powershot SX40 with a great zoom! They are all useful and I love them all, but my DSLR takes the best pics EVER! Enjoy!

  4. Yay for you!! Can't wait to see your photos. Oh, I love my pens!!! THANK YOU!

  5. Wonderful! You'll enjoy your new camera every so much, Sara. Nice purchase.

  6. Sara,
    How wonderful that you got a DSLR. I am anxious to see how this goes for you as I want to trade in my Cannon Sure Shot and get a DSLR. I have just been so intimidated by DSLR. I will be curious to see how easy yours is to learn. I bet it will take the best pictures. Good luck.

  7. You will LOVE it! I too have a Rebel. I have taught myself what I can do with it but would LOVE to take a class to learn more. Can't wait to see your beautiful photos. Enjoy!

  8. Hi Sara, I have a Canon and my family does too. Theirs is fancier then mom's, but I am learning to do what I want to do with mine that is main thing. I know you will love your new camera. It will become easier the more you work with it. Have a great day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  9. Photography is addictive! You will love it! I've still got lots to learn, but it's been a fun journey.
