Point & Shoot

I am in the market for a new Point & Shoot Camera.

I have a 3 year old Sony Cyber-Shot 12.1 but it has seen better days.

It has gotten wet... in rain and with wet hands. It has been sandy, dirty, and sticky. It has really held up and I am impressed.

There are a few things I don't/ didn't like though:
  1. Does not take an SD card... Takes a Sony Memory StickDuo
  2. Takes a long time to focus and shot on Auto
  3. The shutter will not close anymore (seems that cybershots have issues with their shutter
  4. It does not consistently take good photos
Things I do/ did like:
  1. Video recording ability (use it almost daily)
  2. Manual options
  3. Compactness (it's a word I just made up)
Most of the pictures your will see on  The Journey of Three Stones were taking via this camera. Granted... some of the blurriness could be caused by user error. But the camera itself is not consistent.

That being said, I am looking for a great PNS camera with:
  • Manual Mode (I love shooting my DSLR but it's not always practical)
  • Video recording
  • SD card
  • Consistency
  • Compactness
  • Durability.
Have you seen one? Do you have one? Are you are representative of a company who sells ones? I would love to do a review on a camera. Pictures of camera and detailed thoughts and opinions will be given.

HeadBands ROCK!!

I love headbands!!

As a mom with three kiddos under three {read about them here} I don't often get a chance to make my hair look "pretty". Most of the time, it's in a messy bun or pony tail.

So taking a cue from all the fashion mags... I started creating adult headbands. ROCKIN', awesome headbands. Or as I tell my husband... {Pretty Bands}

A Pretty Band can spruce up any hair style... even when my hair is dirty. And I know you moms know what I am talking about!! 
So if you have chance... take a look at what Only Prettier has to offer.

Only Prettier

The joy that overwhelmed me when I found out I was having twins was unbelievable... and then to find out one was a girl took my breath away.

I have always dreamed of having a little girl. My mom and I were always very close growing up and we are still close to this day. She is my best friend. We share ideas... laugh... joke and tease with each other. Yet she's my rock and is always there for me no matter what.

One thing my mom taught me was to express myself and to be creative. We didn't have a lot of money so mom would whip out her sewing machine and create something. Most of our Halloween costumes were homemade. My hand-me downs revamped... and my hair ties never store bought. Looking back at all the goodies makes me smile. My mom is a genius!!

To this day... she tells me to make something work even if I think it can't. She also reminds me to shop at the "cheap stores" and garage sales.

Just because something is inexpensive doesn't mean its junk!!

Growing up I was into beading... and making jewelry... then I started revamping jeans (Rockies and Wranglers to be exact hahaha) and then the craft bug hit me!! & once you have it, you've got it for life :)
Since finding out I was having a daughter, I started creating hair candy. From boutique bows, to korkers, to clips and now on to bigger and better things like facinators (my new love) and headbands!!

I have finally decided to start selling some... Nothing too professional as they are made by me... at my kitchen table, while the kids are busy.

I started a Facebook Page with some product and prices. Once we hit a 150 likes... all "likers" will get 20% off that day!!

Once we get to 300 likes... I will do a {GREAT} GIVEAWAY!!

So what are you waiting for?? Check it out... :)

This picture of my sweet {Alexandra} was not planned... but I couldn't resist sharing.
