Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire:)

For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

Blog updates....again, lol:) (And a new camera purchase)...

Hello fellow bloggers:)

I'm at it again, lol...changing up my blog so I don't get bored, hee hee...I've been feelin' kinda romantic lately so I thought I'd go for a romantic look for a while...I'm gonna have to work on the blog title font, though...the boring blogspot choices are just not cutting it for me, so I'll have to use Photoshop to add the title and then import it...hopefully I'll have time for that tomorrow.

I also hope to have time to do some scrappin' tomorrow.  It seems like FOREVER since I've scrapped "just for me"...most of my scrappin' time has been spent preparing for classes.  Otherwise I've been working on school projects.  I'm excited to be taking Digital Photography as one of my classes and can't wait until I can share some awesome photos based on what I've learned....initially, I thought I could get through the class using my digital "point and shoot", but have quickly discovered I really need and SLR camera to get the most out of the class.

For those of you who know me well, you know I am TOTALLY FRUGAL in every aspect of my I'm sure you're not surprised to know I've been "hyper-ventillating" at the thought of buying an SLR ya think I could get a manufacturer to let me be an SLR camera tester (you know one of those fun jobs where I get to use an SLR camera for free...)  HEY, I guess a girl can dream, right?

Well, if any of you amazing bloggers out there have any advice for me as I dive into my research stage, please feel free to share it...the early favorites are:

Canon Rebel XS or Nikon D3000

Please feel free to give me any advice you can.  Since most of my photos are of my grandkids or other random things I find (I LOVE to take pictures of nature and interesting architecture) please let me know.  I do want a camera that takes AWESOME pictures in low light WITHOUT a flash.  Recently, I have also been partial to black and white photos...and I do use a self timer ALOT!....oh, and I do have an old Minolta 35 ml film camera that has two lenses...I'd LOVE to be able to use those lenses on my new camera...not sure if that is possible, though...

Oh well, that's enough for now:)
