Time to Paint

I found these Crayola paints at the grocery store one day, they reminded me of the ones my sister and I used to use when we were small.  Actually, I remember a time when Dad was babysitting and my sister Sara ate a pack of these paints.  We have a picture of that somewhere, but I think it’s at Sara’s house.  Anyway…here are some pics of my boys painting and loving it.  They don’t quite understand that you need to clean the brush after every color, after awhile all the colors start to look the same.  So I just run the pack under water and washed it up, ready to use again.

Digital Scrapbooking

When I got married almost 15 years ago, I received a 12×12 white wedding scrapbook and some tools to work on it.  And so began my love affair with scrapbooking.  I have about 5 books pre-children.  Then, I have about 16 books for my oldest son (who is only 9, what can I say, I tend to take a lot of pics) and the poor twins only have 4 books each.  This year I started to forgo doing a book for each child and am doing family books from here on out.  I figure they can fight over them some day down the road (or should I say their wives will fight over them).  I’m hoping to decrease the fighting by doing all my scrapbooking on my computer, digitally.  I started digital about 4 years ago.  And it was the best decision!  No more unpacking all my supplies all over the kitchen table and then having to clean up.  Everything is on my computer.  I work on my pages at least once a week, more in the winter.  I am only five months behind, which for me is fabulous!  Email me with questions or leave a comment, I love to talk to others about this!  I also teach a Digital Scrapbooking for Beginners class every winter.  Let me know if you’re interested!  Here are a few samples of pages I’ve worked on recently.  Enjoy!

As most of you know, I earn my living as a photographer.  I love my job and have a real passion for wedding photography in particular.  Most of you also know I love food.  I love to bake, cook, try new things and most of all eat.  I also love to read, watch movies, scrapbook and watch HGTV and the Food Network.  I spend a lot of time with our twin 4-year old boys and our 8 year old.  Sundays are the most important day of the week for me, as I spend them at church in the morning with my family and at my parent’s house afterward for lunch and fun.

Spread the word to friends and family, tell them to check out my new blog.  I will blog about photography, food, family, hobbies and more.  Leave comments and let me know about topics you’d like to see covered.  And check back often as I will hopefully be posting daily.
