bits and pieces

Woot! Woot! Painting is being accomplished! Grandparents are here and giving me all kinds of time to work on the hall.

hoo ray.

I'm waiting for a video to download for you. It takes a little while for a vimeo video to be available to embed. Like 30 minutes or so. I used the time to get some photos off my card. The actual phototaking hasn't been the most time consuming part of Catch 36... it's been the downloads and editing. I'm downloading fifty to a hundred photos on a nightly basis. I don't keep them all... I like to see them on the computer screen, though, before I decide which ones to nix. Helps me check for focus and all that. It's too difficult to see whether or not eyes are in focus on the camera's display screen.

I still have a few minutes for the video, so here are some shots from tonight's photo dump... straight out of the camera without edits... I like this project :)

And now we have the video! The hallway is really difficult to photograph because of the low light and tight space, so I busted out my flip camera. Painting a hallway is hardly thrilling, I know, but I had fun making it.

Mom and Dad are here through late Saturday afternoon. I was running out of steam by around 3pm today, so we'll see what I can get done. At the very least, I want to get the trim completely done. It's been finished but unpainted for over a year now!

See ya after the weekend!

Peace out.

Good job. Grandparents are a blessing aren't they!

I hardly ever comment, but couldn't pass this up! Your doors and trim are beautiful! Wow... the trim really takes those already fab black doors up a notch. Kudos to you and your husband!

Thanks, guys! Deb, you're so faithful. Thank you so much for always keeping up and for saying encouraging things. Ashley, it's good to hear from you! Thank you :) It's been a productive weekend. I'm beat, but it's been worth it!
