Crafty Princess Asks You to, “Say cheese!”

Finally, I am thrilled to announce that I have a new camera, a Kodak EasyShare C813 8.2MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom (in teal no less). My old digital camera is probably going on ten years old! Not only is it heavy and clunky, but due to my most recent PC up-grade I realized I no longer had a port for the cable so I could download pictures. I checked into an adapter, and that was going to be $40! Considering how cheap cameras are these days, I just couldn’t see paying that much when I could buy a whole new camera for a little more.

I knew I have needed a new camera for years, really, but whenever I would start looking around and ask other people what they used, I would just get overwhelmed. So, I figured at least I had one and knew how to use it. Then, the final straw came. I recently interviewed a famous glass artist, Harvey Littleton, for an article I’m writing, and I took some pictures of his Florida gallery. However, when I went to check the pictures and try to figure out how to download them, I realized that only one showed up on my camera, the outside of the building! Crap! None of the other pictures, for whatever reason, were on my camera.

But, my knight in shining armor, my husband, came to the rescue. They had just purchased some of these Easy Share cameras for his engineering office. They are inexpensive (about $100) and easy to use. They even have telephoto capability, so for jewelry and other crafts, that’s a big plus. On the way home from work, he ran by Wal-Mart (a sacrifice in itself since we both loath that place), and bought one for me. I literally just got it last night so I haven’t done much other than play around with it, but I’ll keep you posted. Hopefully, once I can actually post pictures again on this blog (another technical issue I’m dealing with now!), I can show you some great crafting pictures.

    Congratulations on your new “toy”! Or, should I say…business tool? Save your receipt for a possible business expense!

    Thank you for the reminder on the receipt. I’m normally really good about that, but I didn’t buy it, so I need to get that from the hubby!
