Update on Contest!

Well the lady called on Saturday at 1pm (4 hours before the show) to tell us that both of our photos made it in the show. I wasn't able to go, but one of my co-workers went since she lived close by. She said there were other photos, but mostly paintings. They were both hanging in the front by the window.
Anyways that's all I know about the show. Now we wait to see if anyone buys them. If anyone does we make about 50% ($60 each, we make 30 on each).
Now back to all the work I need to do before I leave for Romania.
Stress, stress, stress...

Gallery Show!

So I finally got the camera I've wanted for a while a Nikon D80 with a 18-50 lens.
It's big and heavy but it takes great pictures.
That was the introduction to the following story.

One of my co-workers (#1) found a flier about a contest called "Art inspired by Dance and Life" and she was talking to another co-worker (#2) who is pregnant about taking pictures of her in co-worker #1 belly dancing outfit. But they did not know of anyone to take pictures. Co-worker #2 knew I liked to take pictures and I wanted to get into taking more professional pictures, so she mentioned it to co-worker #1. We all talked about this on Tuesday of last week. We did the photo shoot on Wednesday, we chose out two favorite out of 200 on Thursday, on Friday we framed them and printed them and on Saturday we turned them into the Gallery. We have not heard from them as of 7pm on Friday (6/27/08) and the show is tomorrow, so we think we made it in the show. Well for those who are wondering what the pictures look like here they are: (Note the photographer's name on the picture).

Too much... and nothing interesting....

I've been real busy for the past couple of months getting ready for this weekend. We will be having a Mission Auction night where we will be having lots of silent auction items displayed, entertainment, and hopefully a Live Auction. I have been making tickets, fliers, posters, letters, sending them out to businesses, asking for donations, etc. Just today I sat in the office of the church for almost 6 hours, inputting all auction items in the database.
On top of having to do all this auction stuff, I have my full time job, which is also keeping me pretty busy.
During the last week, we also had a guest who slept in our living room. Not so exciting to go home and not really have a time to yourself for a few minutes.
Of course my Romania trip is also coming soon and I have to get things ready for that. Crafts to order, papers to finish, things to pack, donations to pick up, etc.
Like I said in my Title, way too much going on and nothing really interesting for anyone to read about so that is why I haven't been posting much.

Hope everyone is doing well.
