Okay…I just HAVE to share!!!  I thought I should let you know that, from this point on, my blog should no longer be hosting crappy pictures!!  I can’t even remember how many times I have had to post a photo that’s out of focus, or with horrible color that’s been edited to the point of not even looking like the original piece of work.

In keeping with my frugal ways, I cut a deal with a friend of mine.  She wanted a Cricut and I’ve been wanting a digital SLR ever since I first heard about them, 10ish years ago,  Soooo….I traded her ALL my Cricut stuff (a baby bug, and E2 Anniversary edition, 37 cartridges, and tons of other related stuff) for a BRAND NEW Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLR camera and assorted goodies!!!!!!  Several of the items in the photos above came with the package I got.  The rest of it was stuff I got for FREE from Amazon using the gift cards I earned through Swagbucks (here’s one of my posts about Swagbucks, if you’re wondering about the free stuff!)

So…on the agenda today: I’m going to an all-day crop at a friend’s house and in between paper crafting, I’m going to take TONS of pics!!  I can’t wait to learn all about this wonderful new toy!  EEEP!!!

Happy Scrapping!

    Yay you! I've been wanting a new camera for over a year, still haven't been able to buy one. Let us know how you like it and if its easy to use. The main feature I am looking for in a camera is how easy it is to use.
