***On another note:

After drooling over the fabulishiously cute Lost Cupcakes Bri whipped up for the Lost premier,  girl has mad skillz, I had to have cupcakes for this week's episode. For reals, that was my excuse, heh heh. I bought ours, no major skillz in the cupcake department around my kitchen, thus far.

I also experimented with my newly acquired camera techniques and attempted to capture the cupcakes in pretty much the worst lighting possible. Direct overhead incandescent light, which barely lights up the room, in front of the plasma on the coffee table, at night. I had to push my settings to the max. Very hard to get an in focus shot since I wasn't willing to pull out the tripod. I had cupcakes to eat ya know. Here is my best photo straight out of the camera:


So you can really appreciate this, here is what the original settings produced:

 

No joke, worst lighting.



I wish all of you a wonderful weekend filled with twinkles and whatever makes you happy. Remember you are always the key to that happiness.

xoxo,
