An edited picture:
I rather liked this preset on Lightroom for this picture. It might just be better than the b&w I already posted. I like Lightroom presets. :D

And now I would like to make a little announcement regarding two things.

1. A Movie:
Last winter we made a music video with some friends of ours. The video went to a song called "Tears of the Saints" by Leeland. I'm sure that some of you probably know the song, and I encourage you to check it out. It is a nice song. But that's not the point. The point is, that we made a music video, (and it was very good, I might add) and I am trying to post it up here so that you folks can see. We did try to see if we could put it on YouTube or possibly enter it in the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival (SAICFF), but we were having a hard time getting the rights to use the song. So that is why I can't simply upload the video to YouTube and post the video. :P Our computer technicians are working on it as we speak (a.k.a. me). Hopefully you will all get to enjoy seeing our little production soon. :)

2. My Giveaway:
 I just wanted to make a tiny note that for an extra (1) entry you may post on Facebook or Twitter about the giveaway. I would also like to mention the fact that although I will randomly choose the winners (through random.org), I will make sure that two different people are chosen as winners. That means that if random.org choose the commit number, and the same person ends up winning both prizes, then I will have another random comment chosen instead. (I'm not sure how you girls normally do this, but this is what I am doing, since I don't have that many people participating in the giveaway, and I could very well see it happening that one person ends up getting both prizes. which really wouldn't be fair in my opinion. ;) )
So. That's the news about the giveaway.

Have a great day, and I will try to get the video up soon. :)

  1. I just wanted to let you know that I am having several giveaways going on my blog right now until the 15th.



  2. That is such a sweet picture, Maddie! Your giveaway sounds lovely too!
    I hope you're able to upload the video without too much trouble! (it was very good, wasn't it? :-) So many wonderful memories!)
