I Heart Faces - Smiles

This week's theme at I Heart Faces is Smiles. This picture immediately came to my mind when I thought of smiles. This was taken on Christmas morning. Jaren (my cousin) was giving me a giant hug (and smile). I quickly snapped a photo. At the last moment his older sister, Sierra,  jumped into the background. As you can see they were both full of smiles. I hope you like it!

Make sure to check out all the other smiles over at!

A few photos for today.

Firstly I want to say that I am so glad it is finally friday. This week seemed to drag on forever. And what makes it better is that I have no school monday! 

So today after school I decided I wanted to take photos. There was no one to take photos of so I was thinking, " Hmmm. What could I possibly take photos of?" Then I remembered seeing a photo of a strawberry slamming into a cup of water. So I decided to give it a try myself. Here are the results!


 What do you think? Which is your favorite?

I decided to make them all black and white. Let me know what you think!

My photo today is of me. I was outside taking pictures and I had this idea. So this is what it looked like in the end.

I had to put my camera on the ground and then put it on the timer mode. I hope you like it!

I Heart Faces - Desserts

My entry this week for I Heart Faces :

These are butterscotch bars. They have butterscotch chips, peanut butter and marshmallow in them. REALLY easy to make!

My brother LOVES these things. He hyperventilates when I make them!

Head on over to to see all the other yummy desserts!

A few of you asked for the recipe. You can make a variety of different versions of this .To tell you the truth I just make it up as I go. Here is a general recipe for these ones.

  • 2 cups of butterscotch chips (you can use 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 cup of butterscotch chips instead if you want to add some chocolatey goodness)
  • 3-4 tbsp. of smooth peanut butter
  • 3 cups of marshmallows (rough estimate)
  1. Melt the first two ingredients in a pot on medium-low heat. (make sure you don't burn it!)
  2. Take pot off the burner after the ingredients are melted. Let cool for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add marshmallows and coat evenly. Put in a square greased pan.
  4. Refrigerate until they are hardened.
  5. Cut up and enjoy!
Let me know how they turn out if you decide to make them! 

Someone also asked what lens I used. I used the one that my camera came with. It's called an AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6G. Basically the cheapest one you can get! I've started to save for a new one. Any suggestions?

Today the weather was horrendous (ooo big word). It was snowing and raining and really windy. So my twin and I decided to have a mini photo-shoot inside. Here are a few:

So gorgeous!

Brooklyn took this one of me.

My image for today was taken on Sunday while at my cousins' house. I decided I wanted to try to get her to swing and see if I could make her clear but make the background blurred. They have this swing in their basement so we tried it on there. This is how it originally turned out:

This is what it looks like after a few adjustments:

And here it is in black and white:

Please let my know if you like it. Sometimes to me it looks good but then to others it might not seem so great! I really appreciate the comments. :)
