Happy Fourth of July Weekend & Birthday Wish List!

Fourth of July weekend means a lot of things to me, but one of the things I am usually pretty giddy about is my birthday being right around the corner:)  I am an August Baby, a Leo tried and true some would say.  So the Fourth of July is usually when I start thinking about my birthday...and this one is significant, not only will I be turning the big ## (hehe, ok heres a hint it ends in a zero) but I will also be moving to Portland OR to start my journey in attaining my MFA in Applied Craft and Design.

So needless to say this is call for quite the celebration...and what better way to celebrate than gifts!
I don't normally want big gifts for my birthday, but this year I am dying to get my hands on a digital SLR camera.  For one it would really improve my shops photographs, and I have been enamored with photography ever since high school, but never thought I was good enough so that dream just sat up there on the "pipe dream" shelf.  Until now, its time to take that dream down dust it off and give it the good 'ol college try!

So I have been doing a bit of research on digital SLRs and shopping around Amazon for one that will suit me. 

Here are few digital SLRs that I have been eying on Amazon:)
The Canon EOS Rebel so sleek and sexy...but I believe the Rebel line is their starter line and I would really like something that I will love using for years to come.

Ohh and the Nikon D3000 shes awful sexy too!  I actually got to play with a Nikon in Canada that a friend brought with them, it took some amazing photos.

  Then there's the Nikon D90, and she's pretty pro, I mean she gets 4.5 stars for 298 reviews, people like this camera:)

Do you have a digital SLR camera?  If so what camera do you have?  I would love to hear some feedback on what digital SLR cameras you like and why.  Are there any you can recommend?  Leave me a note in the comments:)

Last but not least I would like to wish everyone a safe and Happy Fourth of July weekend where ever you may be celebrating!!


  1. Hope you get your dreams fulfilled! Your MFA program sounds like so much fun!

  2. Happy Birthday early! Mine is just around the corner and I have already passed a big one also ending in a 0! I hope you get your camera and know you will be a smashing success getting your MFA.

  3. Awe thanks Annie and Quirk:)
    I am pretty excited about both the camera and school!

  4. sorry, im a canon fan, tried and true. its especially nice that all of their accessories work with all their canon stuff, so that's a plus too.
