Guess What?!!!

Good afternoon, dear readers!!! I hope where you are living it is much sun
nier, for it has been rainy and cloudy all day!

I have not been blogging of late because I have been gone with my family for Thanksgiving. I FORGOT TO POST MY GIVEAWAY AND THE LINKY TOOL!!! I am sorry for that. The giveaway is coming soon, and the linky tool is now posted at the bottom of my Christmas event post.
I am afraid I captured no pictures on my trip, but there is one thing I would like to announce.
With great excitement, I would like to announce that my blog will no longer be picture-less nor dull with my brand new, not to mention really smart....

Nikon D3100 camera!!! I am SO excited; we purchased it at Best Buy yesterday on Black Friday for a wonderful deal! It came in a wonderful, couldn't-pass up bundle which included, the case, tripod, telephoto lens, and memory card!!! I have been wanting a SLR for awhile now, and was so nervous when we bought it because it is one of the biggest buys of my life (I am paying for most of it; I saved my money for two years with my birthday money from last year, this year, and am going to give Mother any Christmas money I receive this year). I am so thankful to the Lord that He opened such an opportunity.

Since, I know a lot of you girls have a Nikon, and since I am new to photography, can any of you give me any pointers? I would very much appreciate it!

Giveaway shall be posted to-night!
Lots of Love,


  1. O WOW, Grace! I've drooled over the Nikon D3000 for a year now! I have a close friend who has one, and it's an AMAZING camera! Have fun!

  2. Grace,

    So, you bought yourself a new camera? You sound very happy about your purchase. I will be looking forward to the pictures that you decide to post upon your blog.

    Also, thank you very much for the link on how to make a blog button. It doesn't sound too difficult, and I will try it soon. Thanks for your kindness. :)

    P.S. You are welcomed to visit my blog at any time. :)

  3. Whoo hoo!!!! Nice camera!!! I am sure you are lovin' it right now!!! My sister has a nice Nikon D60 (I think) that she is maybe going to sell to me later on when she upgrades for her photagraphy business. any way, you should zip over to her blog and ask her for some tips:

    I can't wait to see all the wonderful photos!!! I need to get myself a nice little camera that takes decent pics so I can at least post pictures more often.. lol!!

    Have a wonderful, wonderful evening dear friend! :)

    Much love, Sarah (who is excitedly "blanking" away at something.. *wink*!!)

  4. Wonderful! I am SO glad that you got a new camera. I know you have been waiting for a while! :)

  5. Oooh, how exciting! Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog. I actually have a Sony, not a Nikon, but all dSLR's are pretty similar.

    Try to get Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson from the library. It's full of a lot of good information, and will help you understand exposure so much more.

    Just to a lot of experimenting after that, so you can operate you camera manually, because it is so worth it. If you have any questions, feel free to send me an e-mail. :-)

  6. Hi Grace, I have a question about your giveaways. :) Am I able to enter both? I would love a copy of the book and your beautiful cards. :) Just let me know. :)

  7. Dear Grace,
    How exciting that you got a new camera! Nikon cameras are so wonderful! I have the Nikon D40X, and have greatly enjoyed it! Like Sereina said, just do a lot of experimenting. I learn something new everytime I take new photographs! Have fun!
