So Bad I'm Good....

Ok, I haven't been posting much lately. And I truly do feel bad about that for those of you who have actually taken the time to visit my little cobweb riddled corner of the web. But, you know I heard a rumor that there was life away from my computer and I just had to find

There are several things going on in my life. For starters the new job and old job keep me very busy. The new job is with a Steel Building Manufacturer here in Nicholasville, which is really nice because it only takes me minutes to get to work! I really like it there as I get to be very creative. So far, I have done their new brochure, several ads and am currently working on their new website using the old site as a template I can build on to. It is definitely in the production stages, but please take a gander at it: Quantum Buildings. I am just having so much fun with it as I actually get to leave the office to take pictures of their buildings. And let me tell you, I am impressed with the versatility of steel buildings!

Next item of business I have been working on is my own website to show case my photography. This has been a long time coming! I have had the camera equipment for years and thought it was about time I put it to good use! I am so happy this little dream has come to fruition finally. Please visit it and let me know what you think! Weed of Dreams Oh I probably should tell you a bit more about the name so there is no confusion. My first tinkering with html was on a server named DreamWater and one of the first pictures I ever posted was of a purty little weed. I just combined the two to come up with a site name which ended up being: Weed of Dreams. I am not a drug user, so at the time was not even thinking about other references for the word 'weed'. I just thought it was a cute and fun name. Now, I still think it is a cute and fun name, plus, I have the added shock

I finally went to the social security office and had my name legally changed. So, I am not longer Stephanie Buford. I am now, Stephanie Stratton. I keep thinking about my new initials...SS....and I think of the SS Honestly, I had heard horror stories about waiting in long lines at the Social Security Office, but I was in and out in less than an hour. The girl who did my paper work was very happy that I had the form already completely filled out for her. Apparently if you don't have the form filled out before you go, you have to answer a barrage of questions which takes up your time and theirs. So afterwards, I went to the mall and finished up my Christmas shopping:) I can't believe I have that done. Usually, I am finishing up on Christmas

Outside of all that, Thanksgiving was tons of fun. I love getting to see everyone around the holidays and am just so very thankful for my family and friends:) We are still kinda looking for a house/property. Probably will not be serious about property/house hunting until the spring though.
