black and white and read all over

Friday, December 19th, 2008

From a very young age, my mother taught me a few good habits when it came to wrapping Christmas gifts.  Growing up, she would wrap all of the gifts that went under the tree in newspaper.  She would buy a bag of red bows to top off the gifts and add some Christmas color.  As you can see, I’ve followed in my mothers’ footsteps and added [...]

a “flash” from the past

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

I was going through some old pictures today and came across these silly shots and thought that it would be fun to share them. This is me (age 12), my brother, Logan (age 8), and our dear mom.
Is that a two headed monster?
I remember trying to plan each pose just before the [...]

black and white party time

Friday, September 5th, 2008

I returned home today to find a lovely flower arrangement waiting to greet me with a note that read…”I never properly thanked you for the beautiful shower and wonderful reading at the wedding. I feel so honored to have you as my cuz. Hope these add a little color to your day! [...]

Do not adjust your screen…this is an actual photo. It was not taken with black and white film nor was it converted to black and white with a photo editing program. I am throwing my dear cousin, Lizzie, a bridal shower next Sunday. The theme…classic black and white. I have [...]

wee gifts

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

I’m still reflecting on my visit to Nashville. Somewhere amongst the four pairs of shoes, bathing suit, and cowboy hat, I managed so squeeze in a few goodies for the little people I was about to see. Living so far away enables a sense of distance between family members…especially in the minds of children. I [...]

songs of my heart

Monday, July 21st, 2008

My television has been blasting tunes from the County Music Television channel all day in hopes that it will take be back…even if only for a moment. My trip to Nashville, TN, home of country music, filled my heart with many different types of songs this past week. Songs that are dedicated [...]

an apron a day…

Tuesday, July 8th, 2008

What’s the saying? An apple a day keeps the doctor away? After finishing this cutie, I think a word renovation is in store. I stitched this energetic little apron in hopes of giving my cousin a kick start in the kitchen. It’s amazing what a little motivation can do. I’ll [...]

love birds

Saturday, July 5th, 2008

Today I am headed off to an engagement party for my cousin, Courtney. I was told by my aunt that this was not a gift giving event and to save the presents for her bridal shower. I currently have a lovely pink, yellow, and brown patterned fabric laying across my studio floor just [...]

make a wish

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

June has been a month full of birthday celebrations. After taking the “handmade pledge” in my mind, I have spent many hours in my studio doing my best to create pretty little things for the ones I love. This is what I have come up with so far…
June 6th marked the 27th birthday of my [...]
