It’s that time again! In fact, it crept up on me this year. I was on Twitter last night, and I saw the link to The Tour of Tours and realized it was already up and running and I had missed out! Oh well, better late than never, right? I immediately set about taking pictures of our various Christmassy decorations, and when I got to the family room where my husband was watching the Eagles, he started in. “Those are never going to look right.” “You need to use a tripod.” “Why are you holding down the flash? You should use a setting for that.”
Finally my husband said, “Just stop. I’ll do it. Hand it over. Go to bed; I’ll upload them to iPhoto when I’m done.”
And that, my friends, is why I’ve never bothered to figure out how to take pictures like Emily and Dawn.
Needless to say, I gladly handed over the camera and went to bed. And when I woke up this morning, THIS is what I found in iPhoto. (With a few tweaks and edits from me in Photoshop Elements.) (Actually, this ended up being a joint effort. I took a bunch more pictures this morning in the daylight.) (I think I am rather fond of parentheticals.)
Welcome! Won’t you come in?
Please, take a peanut butter ball on your way out. Oh, you want the recipe? It just so happens that I have a post with that, complete with a vlog showing how I dip them. I got this recipe from my aunt many years ago, and I make them every year.
I hope you enjoyed your tour! Feel free to stay a while and look around, but I know you have a lot of houses to visit. Be sure to leave a comment if you stopped by so I can return the visit.
