Party Time!

Yep that's right! I'm joining the party! The ULTIMATE BLOG PARTY that is! This is my first blog party! The ladies over at 5 Minutes for Mom are hosting it and it looks like great fun! Basically it's just a way to find new bloggers and make new friends! I'm excited!

So for the newbies:

I started When You Wish Upon A Star to document my journey into becoming a better photographer. It started off just as a way to share my photos and improving (hopefully!) talent. As I got more involved in it, I found a whole community of bloggers who are photographers too! And to top it off they have busy lives, being moms, just like me! I felt I found a place to belong.

In finding these other women, I've also found photo challenges. My new obsession! I participate in at least one a week, but I do want to do more! They are a fun way to challenge my skills and learn new things! I absolutely love it! And I love the inspiration that seeing other photos provides.

Here's a few examples:




I also throw in random rambling bloggy type things too. What would a blog be without a little rambling now and then?

So that's the basic story of this blog. Come back Wednesday for my new photos! And click here if you want to know more about me and my family!

Have a look around and leave me some feedback! Come follow me too! Thanks for stopping by! And don't forget to:
