Happy Birthday to ME!


As you all know, my beloved 4 to 5 year old Sony Cybershot point-and-shoot digital camera just recently went kapoot on me, leaving me alone and pictureless.

Unfortunately, this doesn't work for me because of two main reasons:

1. My internet jewelry businesses involve taking a LOT of pictures and putting things online-no camera, no pictures, no $$$.

2. I'm a blogger. By definition, that means we carry cameras; It's a habit. Birds fly, fish swim, bloggers carry around a camera. Period.

So, as you can see, my livelihood depends a great deal on pictures and a camera, so being without a workable camera sets me back quite a bit more then the normal college adolescent.

Cue my wonderful, adoring, saint of a mother.

Since my birthday was coming up (Thursday actually!), she told me that my big present would be a new camera, and that I could get it early if I found one I liked.

I must say, I hopped on that computer so fast and started doing my research-asking questions, comparing reviews, viewing ratings-I think I researched myself out!

And behold, the fruit of my labor born bought November 1, 2011 at 6:04 pm CST courtesy of Best Buy.



Isn't she beautiful?! ^.^

SHE'S PURPLE!!!!!

I've already taken some absolutely stunning pictures with her (which will be shared in another post), and I can't wait to do more exploring!

I'm thinking about doing a review sometime in the near future, too :)

So...

Whatcha think!?

She's purdy! Which one is that?
I just saw one that looks like that in my Shutterbug magazine that also came in PINK! I wanted to get it to replace my point-and-shoot that is starting to fail.
That is a wonderful gift from your mom... she is a sweetheart.

Very pretty camera! I've heard Canon camers are good quality. I had a Vivitar and HATED it. So I saved up my Amazon gift cards and recently bought a blue Kodak Sport Easyshare. Life is so much better when you have a camera, and one that works right.
