I haven't used a pinhole camera since highschool and thought this papercraft is awesome. Here's the description and found the posting here. Would be curious to see how the pictures come out. I got some cardstock and ink in my printer. :)

The template for this camera originally appeared in a 1979 issue of the Czech magazine ABC which is known for its excellent papercraft models. Using the same principle as pinhole cameras, this papercraft camera takes real photographs using 35mm film.

Sabi can't wait to go to Grammy's house

Santa came!

Our stockings were hanging on the fireplace :)
Normally only the dogs' stockings are hung.

homemade soup/stew that I made in the crockpot.
It came out very yummy :)
I think I made too much though ;)

I bought a bag of beans from Trader Joe's.
Let's see how my soup comes out. :)

I went out today to check on my geocache in the City Forest and took a few photos while I went for a short walk. The lighting wasn't great, but it was nice to be outside even if it was cold out. I felt like a marshmellow all bundled up but I was warm.

I just realized I haven't taken any photos this past month. My flickr account still shows pictures from Thanksgiving which irks me. Normally around this time of year I would have gone for a walk in the city forest and documented what I saw. What have I been doing with my free time? Hmmm....I think my days off I have been running around trying to get all my Christmas shopping done and haven't taken any time to relax and enjoy the sunlight. I am not a fan of the cold or the lack of sunlight. I do love the tradition of decorating trees and showing appreciation to those you care about. I gave a gift recently to a couple I know and was so happy with their reaction to the gift. We don't swap presents, but I wanted to do something thoughtful for them. After being asked what I want for Christmas I have been realizing I am not a  very materialistic person because I have a very hard time making up a list of things I want. What I really want doesn't come with a price tag although hopefully with time I may get it. You should see how happy I get when I check the mail and get a Christmas card. :) Looking foward to Christmas this year. One more day of work on Monday and then I will be on vacation for six whole days!

Too much candy today. I had been limiting my intake with just from the Advent Calendar, but had a lot of sugar today including coffee from the break room. Corey threw this piece of candy on my desk. I did have a clementine too so I guess it sorta balances out. They have been giving us candy and fruit and soda at work...sort of a holiday celebration thing where the high up people serve you drinks from a cart. We had a HTC presentation earlier about the HTC Imagio which is an alright phone.

OMG....the wii fit finally said my BMI is normal...
I hadn't checked my weight in a month...
I think its from the lack of appetite
when I was sick all of November.
15 more pounds to go to get to what is
healthy for my height :)

Trying a tall Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha Latte.
Just got a haircut, chopped two inches off.
Felt quite theraputic. :)
