5 easy and fun ways to start a back to school photo tradition As a photographer I’m always looking for fun and unique ways to capture the ‘story’ behind the moment the photo is taken, not just a pretty smile. So this year I’ve been brainstorming how to create fun and unique first day […]
When we went to Asheville this summer for the Shaw flooring competition…(please go vote there are only a few more days! THANKS!) We also had my great friend Destinee take family pictures for us. She is a fabulous photographer, and it has been fun to watch her business take off! I thought I would share some […]
Using Photographs in your Decorating Party highlight by Maple & Magnolia I’m picky about the things that I hang on our walls. I want it to mean something. Not just some random image or something mass-produced where everyone you know has the same thing hanging on their wall. I like things that tell a story, make us happy, are […]
Like I said in my last post with the Valentine idea, I recently saw Bright star. It was a feast for my design loving eyes. I wanted to share. If you love design, I would highly recommend this movie. First, Costumes: The production designer and the costume designer for this movie was one person. […]
I know, I already showed you some decor ideas from other sites. But, I thought I would take some pictures of our own stuff. I had a lot of fun taking some spooky pictures in the dark! The of the decorations I was most excited about are the skeleton pictures. Justin drew them back in high […]
I found this link to a site that makes pictures look vintage. It is really quite cool. Just make sure if you are using digital files that you save a copy of the original to fool around with! Enjoy! Here is the site. You just browse to your copied picture […]
Of course we took a ton of pictures of us, and Etta, here they are: This is my favorite: Can you see the difference between the top picture and this one? They are in fact the exact same picture. I just Photoshopped a happy Etta in place of the crying one, although, the […]
Justin’s sister Melissa decided to join in the surprise. She came down late Friday night from Boise with her brand new baby Sam and husband Garrett. This made for the perfect opportunity to take family pictures. Justin and I had brought our camera (obviously…) and a tripod and we took them. I am feeling rather […]
Justin, Greg, Josh and Nate had an early start Saturday morning. 5:00 AM, to be exact. What an unhappy hour.. yet they still started on a hike. 5:00 is early any day, but it also came the night after we played games late. Then, after the games, at about 11:30 when Josh was driving home […]
We drove by the Draper temple so we could get some nice pictures. It is such a beautiful temple, it reminds me of ancient Egyptian architecture. (I am not sure it should, it just does) Enjoy the pics. Please do not use them without my permission.
Up to the highest height! We surprised Justin’s brother Greg on Monday. They had no idea we were in Utah. (We had to get all tricky and scout out what they were doing that day. Thanks Missa and Heidi, luckily they were staying home!) Shirley’s parent’s were in town. Her dad has a really cool […]
We have had a nice break from the heat for the last few days! We have even had rain. A day or two ago when there was a storm approaching, we went out back to put the chickens up and I saw these and I had to share, because there is hardly anything I like […]
of TEXAS! (clap, clap) Justin and I had the pleasure of hanging out with my sister Tiffany and her family in San Antonio this weekend. It was a much needed break! And it was so fun to chase after my baby nieces (and a little bit scary- in an “am I really ready for […]
Here are some of the pictures of our last trip to the Biltmore! And of course, after an afternoon of goodbyes, one must be nourished. And what better place for another fond, tear filled farewell, but 12 Bones.
