Window Shopping

Man... I'm wishing I could win the lottery, or get a huuuge tax refund... or something.  Why? Because I have a boatload of neat things I really really really wish I had the money to spend on.

I am doing Project Life this year.  Part of my resolution.  I'm challenging myself to take notice of the little things... take daily pictures, even if they're just cruddy snapshots.  And also to challenge myself photographically to get more artistic and stretch my abilities.  I'm really excited about this!

But I'd love love love these little things to make this journey a little easier...

I so need a new printer for my computer.  Mine is probably 7 or 8 years old?  Ali Edwards uses this one to print her pictures for her scrapbooks and I think that'd be so much SIMPLER for me (see... its kind of my word!).  It would make scrapbooking in general more of a "in the moment" type activity instead of waiting for prints to come in the mail!

But probably more than that I think this little portable printer would be better... I could set it upstairs with my Project Life kit and print my daily 4x6's for my scrapbook. 

Speaking of computers... I so need a new one.  Mine has uh... 2% free space on it... I can't even defragment it because that requires 15% free space.  I LOVE this computer... no tower!  Everything is in the screen AND it is a touchscreen!!

And, I've been wanting a iPhone/iPod dock to play music.  This one was recommended to me by a few people. This would be nice since we canceled television...  no more Sirius radio channels.  :*(

And something completely not necessary, but I'd love to get a nicer point and shoot.  Canon launched their Your Second Shot project and has a lot of point and shoot cameras that can handle low light situations better.  This camera has been on my wish list :)

A little personal item I love... this "Through My Lens" necklace.  Love. 
 
Ahhh... a girl can dream, right?  I think this whole "giving up photography" spiel might have to kick the bucket so I have some spending money!  For now, I'll just stick to worrying about paying bills, though.

  1. Quit talking about printers woman! The more you talk about it, the more I want one! And, I definitely don't "need" one! I can just print mine through walmart or something. That necklace rocks though!

  2. Okay, so are we living the same life this year? We have so much in common with our goals it is not even funny! I'm so excited to see you are doing Project Life. I am LOVING it so far! What kit did you end up ordering? Also, here is a cute necklace I found on etsy that you might like. http://www.etsy.com/listing/62452386/simple-camera-necklace The chain was really cheap but the camera charm is super cute.

  4. I just wanted to fill you in on the printer. I bought the HP Photosmart Premium All-in-one Wireless last year and although I LOVE it and it prints wonderful pictures, it's quite the money-hog. On average, my cartridges last about 6 weeks. This includes printing 30 or so "best" quality 4x6 pics within that time. I wouldn't trade this printer for anything and you will LOVE it, but, weigh your outsource printing costs carefully before you decide to buy.
