I have been searching for a new camera bag and I have finally found it! It’s the Hobo Bag from Kelly Moore Bags. I love everything about it. The design, the color, the size, all the compartments. It is totally fantastic. Perfect for my everyday go to camera bag. I am dying for the Walnut and I am going to have to wait patiently for it to come back into stock in early January!! Here’s a pic of it but in the gray... Head on over there and check out the bags. They are awesome and Kelly does these fab... Continue reading

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, i heart faces photo challenge this week is all about celebrating PINK! The challenge is to use a photo that includes both a face and the color pink. This couldn’t be more up my alley after watching my sister be diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 40. Today, two years later, she is strong and healthy thanks to all of the advancements made in the treatment of pre-menopausal breast cancer. These advancements would not have been possible without all of the dollars raised by so many wonderful organizations. I thank everyone... Continue reading

It’s Constructive Feedback Friday at i heart faces this week and, boy, can I use some help. I am posting my FAVORITE picture of my daughter that I took this summer. I love the shot, the composition, her expression but I just can’t get the skin tones right (plus I think the shoulder is almost blown out). I also want to pop her shirt and the yellow wall behind her (to give the shot a little urban vibe) but I am having a lot of trouble doing that and still balancing her hair. Any help would be so very, very... Continue reading

Well, to be more accurate, I should say my “side dish” in a photo. Here’s my absolute favorite summer side dish. Depending on where you are, you might still be able to get some fresh corn and delicious local tomatoes. Here on the east coast, I will have to wait until next summer. Until then, I have this... heirloom tomatoes, just picked corn, salt, pepper.... it doesn’t get any simpler. Continue reading

I have to admit, I have become a little photoshop obsessed. I am not sure it is a good thing but it sure is fun. I may have to find a 12 step program soon but until then, here’s my take on this week’s Fix it Friday over at i heart faces. This is the original shot SOOC: And here is my edited version: Here’s what I did. My goal was to really play up the purple... Cropped it, did a curves adjustment to fix the brightness, used the color balance to increase the yellow and red to correct the... Continue reading

Hi Monica, Thanks for stopping by to say hello. Love your column idea! I have a vintage flower frog that has an ornate silver base that I use to hold pencils and pens on my desk. Oh yeah, and I vote for Finders Keepers.
My daughter takes after me...no doubt about it. She is really a mini me in so many ways but perhaps the most important way we are alike (seriously, it’s not the most important way but humor me ok?) is our love of pjs. I mean OUR LOVE OF PJS. We could live in them...we don’t (although my husband thinks we do) but we don’t....we have other clothes....but if we can find an excuse to wear pjs, we will. In fact, our favorite day of the year is pj day (for those not familiar with this holiday it is when you... Continue reading

Maggie, I use CD’s to store my clear stamps too. Another idea is Zutter’s Acrylic Album that is made for storing clear stamps. I have one that I keep on my desk that I use for all my sentiment stamps. I also second the request to come east. I would love for you to shoot my family!

Hi all, I took a few minutes this afternoon to fool around with this week’s Fix It Friday over at i heart faces. I LOVED this week’s photo since I think taking Senior Photos is where I see my photography expanding to. I love what you can do with these images, how creative and out of the box you can be. Plus, it is such a special time in their lives and I love being part of capturing that! Here’s the picture we had to work with... Part of the challenge was to fix the sky. Here’s what I came...

Good Morning, it’s early Sunday morning here and I am up drinking some coffee and enjoying a little peace and quite. It’s my favorite time of the day. So what goes perfectly with a cup of coffee? How about a little spin around some of my fav blogs to see what everyone is up to. Well, actually a donut might be even better with my coffee but there are no donuts here (might have to fix that when my hubby gets up!) so blogs it is. It’s been a few days since I have been able to catch up with... Continue reading

Over at i heart faces this week’s challenge is all about looking back on your summer in pictures. As I am sitting here, early in the morning, on my kids first day of school, looking back on our fabulous summer seems especially apropos. Let me just admit here that I hate really, really dislike the first day of school. The routine, the schedule, the HOMEWORK...really school would be fine without all the homework. I long for the lazy, free days of summer...no place to be, no due dates, no tests, no paper, no HOMEWORK. But, I realize, that part of... Continue reading

Remember that first assignment you had to do at the start of each school year...well, here is mine...in picture form.... I have to give a HUGE thank you to Maggie Holmes and her photography workshops. It was 12 weeks (two 6-week classes) of fantastic information, great ideas, educational critiques and a group of talented, wonderful photographers who were willing to openly share their creativity. Thanks to everyone who helped me grow and develop my passion for photography this summer. It has been truly special! Continue reading

Not sure which but I have definitely been suffering from one (if not both) of these ailments this last week or so. But today I found this and just had to share....just to remind us all of our beautiful selves.... Do you know how beautiful you are? Standing there. Sitting there. Waiting there. Breathing there. Do you know how beautiful you are? Pumping gas. Feeding your children. Sitting in your cubicle. Loading the dishwasher. Running on the treadmill. Standing in line at the grocery store. Do you know how beautiful you are? Wearing sweat pants. No make-up. Jeans two sizes... Continue reading
