Like many of you I have spent way too much time on Pinterest pinning all kinds of wonderful decorating, gardening, travel, craft and food ideas. One of the ideas that really caught my attention was creating your own heart shaped sugar cubes. Really how sweet is that!!! So I ran out and got a heart shaped candy mold and off I went…
Cindy at Skip To My Lou had great, easy, step by step instructions, pop over there for her how to. Cindy recommends using food coloring gel, I didn't have any gel so I just used regular food coloring.
I loved how they turned out, now every morning I can have a pretty little lump of sweetness.
The teapot, cup and plate are all mismatched but the gold and the pink seems to tie them all together, they make a perfect mixed set.
Pinertest has so many beautiful photos it is tempting to pin and post. However, since beginning our blog I discovered I like photography. So, in my quest to take better pictures I'm taking an eight week photography class at one of the local community colleges.
A few tips from the first class: Tip one, move in closer to the item you are photographing than you think you should be, ok did that. Tip two, don't use the flash, natural lighting is better, however that can be challenging in Michigan during the winter because it is so dreary. But I did manage to catch one hour of sunshine. Tip three, turn off the automatic setting and shoot in manual, humm. Ok I did not do that because the pictures were coming out blurry. Hope I will learn how to shoot in the manual setting over the next few weeks.
So how are my pictures this week, any better? Trying hard to apply what I'm learning and have photos that are Pin worthy! If anyone has other photography tips I'd love to hear about them.
