A new toy

I have a new toy!

20160420-163747.jpgNo, it’s not something from NASA, but a stand for my camera. MyDearFIL gave me some money for my birthday and this was something I’d been thinking about getting for a while, so perfect timing!

I’m hoping it will prove useful when I’m trying to take pics for tutorials………I’ll keep you posted!  (With thanks to the staff at Kirk’s for helpful guidance and assistance as we made our choice – so nice to have someone actually knowledgeable and serve you!  The best of small business.)

Speaking of tutorials……..   Looking for something to do this weekend?  Craftsy are having a super sale with loads of classes at 50% off!  Find something to inspire you – ends Saturday (USA time).

    Your readers will definitely be on the receiving end of such a gift.

  5. Several Christmases ago, Malcolm gave me a similar tripod, and Stuart gave me a small one (great minds think alike). As you speculated, they are great for tutorials, especially using the timer on the camera to get your hands in position ……. and the big one doesn’t complain in the same way that husbands do when you use their shoulder as a tripod!!
    Have a great weekend, hugs from your Big Sis
