I am Ex. Hau. Sted. Millions of things running around in my head at this moment, but I wanted to stop and take a few minutes to update the (sorely) neglected blog.

Translated, this is what I do when I’m sitting at my desk trying to make homemade ornaments and I don’t feel like plugging the hot glue gun up for the few spare seconds before time to head to church…so I divert. Also, glitter and I have a love/hate relationship and I’m avoiding her right now, too. I figure divert is a MUCH better option for just before church than say hot glue guns and glitter.

And since I haven’t “diverted” to the blog in a while….like over a month (HOW HAS IT BEEN THAT LONG?) I thought it might be time.

Today was my last photography 110 class. Photography 115 and 120 start in January, but I’m going to enjoy the time off until then. I finished with a 98-A (yay).

Here’s a few assignments I had to do this semester that I don’t think I’ve shared yet….

Story telling assignment:
FDavis_Storytelling Assignment

Lighting assignment: (diffused lighting and diffused directional lighting) fdavis-1fdavis-2

Depth of Field Assignment:

Composition assignment: (spot: the leaf; line: the stairs)fdavis-1fdavis-2

I really like class (although a couple of the classmates really try my patience—ugh) and even most of the homework isn’t terrible. I feel like I learned a lot this semester. Now when I take a bad picture, I know what I did wrong. LOL.

So in other news, the house is coming along nicely. I have Munchkin’s closet still to paint, and unfortunately, still some white trim that isn’t finished. ARGHHH. White trim makes me REALLY frustrated. Mostly because there is SO stinkin’ much of it that I paint and paint and paint and still don’t get finished. *sigh* The kitchen is functional (all but the microwave, some small trim, and replacing the electrical outlets and lights). Hopefully those things will all be fixed very soon. Also, we’re still looking for furniture for Munchkin’s room and we really need to go ahead and get closet organizers for both kids closets so I can unpack their toys and books. SOON…very soon…I hope.

I should have some before/after shots pretty soon, also. I just keep waiting for perfection…it’s just the kind of person I am. LoL. One day I’ll learn to get over that. Maybe.

Okeydokey…time for church. Later…whoever still reads this. =)


  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family Faith. I pray that it will bring much happiness and joy to your family and Happy New Years. I have deleted my blog and started a new one to show my photos to my family and friends. Your photos are beautiful and wished I could take a class myself on this subject, but, alas, living in the rural mountains does not provide a luxury and driving a couple hours to class is not permitted. So....anyhow, keep up the hard work. It is so paying off. Stunning work. See me at and I shall be expanding on blogging as well soon. May the good Lord Bless and keep you all safe.

  2. You're alive! It sounds like you really benefited (enjoyed) your photography class.

  3. Ahhh...people DO still read this. LOL. Nice to hear from both of you!

  4. Merry Christmas! I was on Susan Godfrey's CT with you awhile back; I still read your blog.
