Playing is a very important part of my life. One of my many ways of playing is with my doll collection. I am sharing a video I made that features some of my dolls in clothes I sewed or crocheted. I love photographing them in little vignettes - especially in the garden! I belong to several Doll Collector's groups in which we have challenges for various doll adventures, sewing challenges, etc.  Beware! I will be posting more!

I made this video in response to a post by Bethany Perry about our Inner Princess. In this video I want to show how my Inner Princess has a childlike love of  the beauty of Springtime and her birthday!

I am trying to become more at ease singing in front of a video camera. I actually thought it would be easier than singing for an audience. I was quite mistaken. I will be doing more of these until I figure out how to be more at ease. It would definitely help if I had an accompanist/ accomplice! Comments/suggestions are welcome!

So, two days after the ice storm video I just posted we had the First Day of Spring! One lovely, warm sunny day before the temperature began to cool off again. I enjoyed the day very much and I made this video in my secret garden.I had to compress this considerably to upload it to Blogger. I will set up a Youtube channel soon. Maybe then the videos will not have to be so compressed.
Today I want to show you my brief video of the second ice storm we had this month of March! I apologise for the video compression - Blogger will only upload very compressed videos! When I get brave enough to post on Youtube you will be able to see better quality. I use Sony Cybershot and on my computer and on a closed private Facebook page these look great.

Today I would like to begin sharing a few selected videos I have been making for a 30 Day Video Challenge. I had my camera for almost a year- unpacked , still in the box- until this Challenge. I am learning a great deal about light and camera angles. Then there is all the techie stuff about making the video and posting it. The worst for me is watching myself on video. This is a real eye opener for discovering where my deepest vulnerabilities are... The first one I am sharing was taken midway through the challenge when many of the participants were feeling daunted.

I'm in a 30 Day Video Challenge! I am overcoming my fear of being seen.....

Yikes! I'm in a 30 day Video Challenge.  So far I have resisted posting the videos here.  Some of you want to see the videos- but you can't because they are  posted in a closed group. So today I am going to work on getting them up here. The theme  so far is  overcoming my fear of being seen. It is a journey taken with baby steps....
