The mirrors in my house LIE!!!!!!

Posted on: January 23, 2008

So yesterday when I got home from work, I was working on a love themed project for the store. I needed a cute picture of me and my husband. I went searching through all of my 2007 photos and came up with squat. No problem. Thanks to digital cameras, I will just set up the tripod, set the timer on the camera, plop us on the couch, tell him to smile like he loves me and snap away. Just to be sure I came out with something usable, I checked myself in the mirror first. Not bad considering I had been at work all day and came home to get the little one dinner and all and it was 9:00PM. We took 5 pictures during a commercial break and off I went to upload them to the computer and then to Costco for printing. What the heck?!! Is that what I really look like? That is certainly not what the mirror reflected back at me. I didn’t see tired droopy eyes, or flat hair, or anything of the sort that these pictures were showing me. GRRRR!  So hence the title of this post.

 Moral of my little blurb here …. hand your camera off to people and tell them to take pictures of YOU and your loved one(s). Don’t worry about being a bother to them. Don’t fear your camera is too complex for the common man to work. Don’t be shy. Don’t worry about seeming like a narcicist. After all the hard work you go through to scrapbook, you should be in at least some of the pictures. Don’t you think?

And heck no I am not posting those pictures on this blog! You’ll just have to come into the store and find my project which will have at least one of the horrible pictures on it.

You are too funny! I often feel the same way. I check the mirror and I think, “not great, but not bad.” Later I see pics of myself and think, “OMG! What was I thinking?” I agree let others take pics of you when you know you look good.
