i have always taken a gajillion pics of my kids from day one and wondered in the back of my mind if i was going to be the reason they would turn blind before their 1st birthday from the camera flash exposure.
i have created such a monster in me that i am full blown photo addict especially during holidays and vacations.
i mean, my kids sometimes hide from me when they see me pull the camera out. and my husband? he tells me his limit is 2 pics a day. dang that's really hard on this camera addict!
but as you know, everyone hates their pics taken a gajillion times unless they are a celebrity but heck man, they sure want to see the pics once they are done!
and what about all those crazy selfies everyone takes nowadays?
i don't get it.
but i will continue taking a gajillion pics of my family and buying camera batteries and SD cards like it's no one's business.
maybe if i bribe them with candy, they'll be more cooperative when i say "just one more pic ok?", as i really take 500 more...and maybe, they'll like this candy
and smile for me? hmmm...
first i took the empty candy cane tubes we got from walmart for christmas and my wheels started to turn.
you can use paper towel rods too for this. i wanted to use the clear tubes at first but the darn paper was too hard to remove thoroughly so i ended up doing something completely different than what i had set out for.
i got the cherry hearts from joann fabrics. they're like heart shaped jellybeans.
who says tattoos have to be on your skin?
looks like this mom wants to have a family portrait.
good luck with that!
