hello friends…

that’s one of the things I love about blogging, I feel like I’ve made friends I would have never known, had it not been for blogging. When I first started getting involved in the “online crafting/scrapbooking world”, I joined 2peas and it was like a whole new world opened up to me. I met so many kindred spirits through 2peas and then SISTV and several other groups that I was involved in. At that time, I was working at all the trade shows and was able to meet many of the friends I “met” online, in real life. I was only slightly surprised that almost everyone I met was just who I expected them to be….like they were online. There were a lot of us who would post our new layouts in the morning between 8:30 and 9:30, and even those of us who didn’t have anything new to post, still drank our coffee and posted nice comments on the layouts posted. That was a sweet time. I miss those times….but life marched on and things change. I have stayed in close touch with only a handful of friends from those days, but I still think of the ones I’ve lost touch with and when our paths do cross, it’s awesome! One of the many reasons I love to have a blog, is the opportunity to connect with other likeminded people. Sharing ideas and thoughts. It’s nice to be able to keep up with friends (even those I’ve lost touch with)via their blogs. I did truly meet some of the most giving, caring, insightful, and talented women during that time….thankfully I know they are only a click away….even if our daily coffee and 2peas connection isn’t there like it used to be.

To those of you who have a blog and invest the time and energy to share, thank you! Even if we don’t comment on a regular basis, at least I think we all know that we’re still supportive of each other and if any one of us needed something, we’d be there. Facebook has helped me to stay in touch at least a little with a few of the friends I met through 2peas.

This week, I’ll be sharing lots of senior peeks. I apologize to those of you who have been waiting to see. I didn’t realize how behind I would be. But this week should catch me up! I have lots of family and friends shots to share too. Last week I hosted a little poolside luncheon for my pal Lin….it was so much fun! Can’t wait to share those shots. Today is actually her bday, so Happy Birthday Lin! I hope you have the bestest day!

As crazy as it sounds, I’ve started talking to our kids about getting Christmas photos done, so that I can do Christmas card samples. Hopefully this week and next, I’ll be getting those shots. I was talking to Beth and realized that I haven’t taken more than 2 or 3 photos of them since their wedding last October! Not good! Can you believe it’s already time to think about Christmas photos?

I recently took Shelby’s senior photos….thanks for your patience to see your peeks Shelby! Shelby, her mom LaRae and I had an awesome time scouting out some really remote locations! They were both so trusting and willing to go with whatever I came up with….and I came up with some crazy stuff!

img_1935-web We took her cheerleading shots in a very nontraditional location!



img_1987-web Love this one….and you wouldn’t believe what we had to walk through to get to it. Anything for a shot!




img_2063-web Whoa. so gorgeous.


Thanks for being so willing to try lots of different (truly!) locations and ideas Shelby!

Have a good Monday everybody!

God bless!

Karon Henderson - What a BEAUTY!!! Gorgeous photos as well 🙂 You never cease to amaze me!!

angela - Hello to you too, friend! I still hope to have lunch with you someday if you’re willing and able. You’re a busy gal!
Maybe sometime you’re coming to the camera shop in Omaha or when I plan on going to your town to antique or something.
I loved the shot of Shelby on the truck, too. And the last one. Such pretty eyes

Keshet - I love meeting online scrappy friends–it’s so wonderful to get to know people who I would probably never meet in my regular life!
