I am excited to tell you that I am attending the Spark! event a week from Friday. I found out today. I wasn't expecting it, but am very very excited to be involved with this event. Thanks again Alisha! I'm sad you won't be able to attend though. I will be meeting some very amazing ladies who will be sharing their talent to us. I will definitely have to show and tell you all the creative and amazing things that happen. I am so glad to be able to treat myself to some creativity and inspiration.

Baby Overload

Yes, I am proud to say that I am a proud Aunt of 2 nieces and 1 nephew. I'm sorry if you don't want to see this many pictures of them, but I want to show them off. I've been having a lot of fun taking pictures of these kids today.

This is probably my favorite picture of these two girls. What a great weekend to come home and see the grandkids. I love them so much!

'Tis Here!

Yes, that is right! Fall is here! It finally hit the valley and I had to take pictures of these pretty trees! The moment all the leaves are gone.... it's sadness. I'm super sad when that time comes. I'm going to enjoy it while I can.

Enjoy it while you can!

Most Recent Purchase

Meaning... most recent big purchase. I have been wanting a camera like this for a very long time now. I didn't want to rush into things or anything to find the right one, so I asked my good friend Mollie who is a professional photographer to keep her eye out on a good camera for me. I trusted her completely on picking the right camera for me. And she did just that! The sad part of this whole thing is I haven't even had a chance to really play with it. I took my friends out on a photoshoot the first weekend I got it to fiddle around with it. Now all I need is for Mollie to come and visit me and take me on a tour of my new Camera on how to make pictures more interesting by using it. One day, some day, I will be a good photographer. Almost as good as Mollie. :)

Have a great weekend everyone! This weekend is going to be great! Love ya all!

Make Over

I thought that I would finally post these before and after pictures of my friends Josh and Chase's apartment that I helped decorate in the middle of August. (yes it has been awhile and yes I had the pictures).

They gave me a budget of $200 to give their apartment an uplift. They told me they wanted to get some girls over to their apartment. I told them I would be more than happy to do it for them. So I brainstormed and came up with the idea of buying fabrics and making canvases out of them. My sister was kind enough to go with me to Ikea and buy fabrics, curtains, and a rug. It was a lot of fun picking out the fabrics. Chase built frames to staple the fabric on. We also went to Lowe's and bought the paint. It was a fun project! I hope I get another opportunity to do something like this again! I hope they don't get in trouble by management. :)
