Nuts! 1/52 2011, originally uploaded by McGillicutty1.

How's your New Year treating you so far? broken your resolutions yet? nope me neither. I have set myself a couple of goals and my first is to work on the white balance of my pictures. Each month I'll pick a new technique or trick that I can learn from fellow photogs and run with it. I am still involved with the Blog Camp group on flickr and will be posting a picture weekly to their group. Not as exhausting as my picture a day project and, if approached in an organised manner, I'm sure I can complete the challenge.
Unfortunately I didn't manage to complete either of my big challenges last year... I wanted to take a picture a day and write a novel. Well I may have one chapter done of the novel but that's it. I just don't have it in me. I like the comfort of the mish mash of a blog really, no forward thinking and planning involved. Just put down my thoughts for the day, show off my pics and I'm done. As for the picture a day challenge, well I don't know where I went wrong with that one... not so much that I didn't take a pic every day but I was rubbish at organizing and cataloging them which irritated me greatly!!!

In other news.... I have started a new project and have a new website... not ready to totally reveal it yet. Still a little shy and have some more tweaks and preparations to take care of before i let you in on it. I'm going to be really busy this year, however, if I can carry on as started it'll be a breeze. As long as my support group (his gorgeouness) manages to keep up with the chores I sneakily make him do it will leave me time for bloggin' and photography and all the yummy fun stuff I like to do. Don't tell him but I managed to get some hidden camera footage of him vacuuming the floor the other day and I sent it to my closest friends with a message that read... "Happy New Year to Me!!". Hoorah!!!!

And finally.... I had the best time on New Years Eve with two of my closest online friends, one whom I have never even met in the flesh. Through the marvels of technology I chatted with Bambi and wished her a Happy Birthday. Then later that evening I wished Spudbaloo a Happy New Year and felt all warm and fuzzy as our exchange continued into 2011. I love my virtual BFF's!!!!!!

Au revior mes ami's ...... talk atchya later.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Bambi in person - though she may not see it as a pleasure. I am me, ya know!!!

We were in St Louis for a Blogger meet-up. And she is just as great in person as she is on the blog - when she bloggs. (And Hot, too)

A novel?!?!!?! Wow that was a big one. I think this year's are much more attainable. I hope you share your photography tips. I know I could really use some "schooling". Have a great beginning to a fantastic new year!
