Refuge

Psalm 62:1-2

My soul finds rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

Macro shots

push pins

I got a Pentax K-x for Christmas.  It’s going to take me a while to really learn how to use it.   I went back to the Canon PowerShot today to get this shot of a pile of  sewing pins.   The kit lens on the Pentax just doesn’t allow for it.

This is as close as I can get with the Pentax.  I still like the shot.  It’s just not as close as I sometimes like to get.

Glass ball

In a departure from his norm, my husband decided we needed a Christmas craft to do over Thanksgiving break.  He’s not an artsy-craftsy sort of person.  But, he saw some frosted and clear balls at Hobby Lobby and decided that we needed to decorate them.

He got some glass stain, and glass paints.  The kids added some puffy craft paint, and we all set off to work.  We had family visiting, so everyone got into the spirit and started decorating.

It was fun to see people getting so absorbed in their creations.  It really was quite relaxing to sit and swirl paint in our little ball ornaments, pondering, and experimenting with different effects.  Even the non-crafty folks were taking this very seriously.  It was fun to see the variety in our end results.

Bokeh

 

Bokeh

Darcy, at Life with My 3 Boybarians, teaches regular people like me how to use their cameras.  This week she taught us about ‘bokeh’.   My Canon Power Shot wouldn’t let me turn the aperture any lower than 2.8, so I had to find other ways of getting the light to blur. 

This was a spindle from a beaded snowflake ornament with the tree lights in the background.

Here is a favorite nativity ornament:

I am enjoying the sights of the season right now.
We simplified our decorations, putting up only the tree, stockings and mantle wreath.  Christmas shopping is almost done and the pace is slower than normal. 
Nice.
