Really, I am here. I promise. My home internet isn't working so great. I did receive the camera I wanted for Christmas! So exciting! woot woot!

Im hoping to make it into the screen printing studio next weekend and make a couple of prints. Wouldnt the above one be sweet to give to a friend? We'll see what happens. I will document the process with lots of photos! I love my camera! Thanks mom and dad!
