2011: A Look Back in Photos

So.
I made my first iMovie today.
And you can totally tell it's my first.
It's a little retrospective of 2011.
Through photos.
In amateur movie form.
It took me almost all ding-dang day (off and on, but still).
I wanted to post it much earlier in the day and not like an hour before 2012 bursts on the scene.
But here we are anyway.
There were many, um...technical difficulties.
And I could never figure out how to get music from our iTunes library so I had to make do.
Feel free to press mute.
And I gave up trying to add captions too.
Sorry about that.
I also feel I must confess that the first version weighed in at almost 19 minutes.
Nineteen. Minutes.
What the what?
Photos. I like them.
But I wheedled it waaay down to a much more manageable 5 minutes.
You are ever so welcome.
And I totally understand if you just can't bring yourself to watch the whole thing.
It's okay. We're still friends.
Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet from time to time and occasionally saying hi.
You are good people.

2011, you were a good year.
No offense to 2011, but here's to 2012 being even better.

  4. You did a great job with the movie! I am inspired to try that! (that's a nice way of saying I want to be a copy cat.).

    I also love that I've followed your blog all year and recognized the photos. Happy new year

  6. Thanks y'all! I didn't realize that I left a gap in the music--at least once, maybe more--until after I'd uploaded the movie. Oh well. There's a learning curve I guess. :)

    You can mix in video clips too, I just hardly ever take video. I'm much more of photo girl I guess.

    Thanks for reading and sticking with me--all of you--it's nice to know y'all are out there! :)
