I am doing something I don’t think I’ve ever done anything before. I am asking for donations.
But it isn’t for any cause or charity. It is something that will benefit me, and well, you too. Wouldn’t you like to see me post even better photos?
Well the gang at JessicaSprague.Com is celebrating their second anniversary in DigiLand. And one of the surprises announced today is a special summer offering of one of their online classes that I’d been anticipating:Candice Stringham’s Oh Shoot! Beginning Digital SLR Photography class. I’ve wanted to sign up for this class since I saw it on their store, but I just couldn’t justify the costs. But now… I really really want this. There are other classes available here that I can physically attend, and would cost a little less (though with transpo and food expense, maybe it will cost more after all). But if you read her class description, you’d understand why I want to sign up.
The thing is, the registration will open in a few days and I only have about 70 USD in my Paypal account, and the class costs 126 USD. So what I’m asking is — could you help me make up the difference? Please? I don’t know if anyone will actually donate, but it wouldn’t hurt me to try would it? Click on the button to donate! 🙂 And don’t forget to leave a note so I can thank you properly 🙂
*The Paypal website seems to be having problems. If so and the button above doesn’t work, please try to send your donations to verabear (at) msn.com. Thanks again!
Ohhh… I almost forgot about posting pictures! I decided to join in for a picture meme called You Capture:
This week’s theme is SUMMER.
It’s my favorite time of year.
First off – our beach side photo from Baler. My niece Hannah snapped this for us at around 8 in the morning.
Later that morning, we hopped on a tricycle, just the boyfriend and I and we were taken to this wonderful place. The water was so cold! A welcome respite to the heat of summer. This is about 45 minutes away from the beach.
This boy was with us in the trip. He’s the son of one of my childhood friends! Isn’t he cute? He loved swimming in the kiddie pool at the resort!
Summers are the perfect reason for team outings. And what are summers if not for goofing around?
The boyfriend and my nephew Esban are perfect companions for outings like this!
Every summer we realize how fearless E becomes when in the water. Because he knows how to swim now, he wasn’t afraid of tackling the slide! Alfred was waiting to catch him of course. Hehe
And here’s one more photo from Summer of 2009:
Happy birthday Ma! (today’s her birthday!)
