It has been said that "a picture is worth a thousands words." I believe that a picture that captures a moment is worth so much more. There are things in life that can't be replaced or relived, but a photograph can bring back those feelings in a rush. To me photography is more than just angles and lenses, its about the little things that become unforgettable.

A week behind!




But I have a good reason, I promise! Both Mule and I have been sicker than sick! Its been icky and exhausting… and I’ve pretty much slept most of this week away :(

Day 21 – I have a darn cute puppy!

Day 22 – I finished an infant sized afghan and slipped outside while there was about 7 minutes of sunshine :)

Day 23

– Scoot decided that he should climb onto my desk, snatch my BRAND NEW scissors and chew them to bits. I’m still miffed about this!


Day 24 – the beginning of the sickies… Scoot seems to know when I need snuggles :)


Day 25 – Happy Birthday Mule! Let us celebrate with Angry Bird cake, Sinus meds & Cough Syrup!


Day 26 – Midnight birthday request… technically since I took this at like 12:03 on the 26th is day 26 :)


Day 27 – the sun is back out, I only partially feel like death and Mother Nature is screwed right up!



Back on Monday with the weekend pics :) Hoping to actually go out and take some nice shots!

Day 16 to 20


Yup… behind again… but I don’t think anyone reads this anyways… so no biggie.

Day 16

This picture is actually from the 13th… but I didn’t share it. Mule and I had to go get his glasses and we got to eat at Long John Silvers. Since its about an hour away, its considered a treat around here :)


Day 17:

I made Scoot his very own quilted “bed”. He still prefers to sleep right under my feet when I’m blogging/editing/crafting… but we’re working on that.


Day 18:

Mule was off today … and he had a nap with Scoot. Silly Boys!


Day 19:

The perfect start to what turned out to be a hectic day! And of course this is about as close as I’ll get to snow this year :s


Day 20:

Mule brought this home for me… I think this is his way of saying that I need to organize the spice cupboard… I suppose it is slightly out of control when it takes me 5 minutes to find garlic powder.



I’m gonna try to better, I promise!

Day 13, 14, 15


It seems as though its easier for me to not post on the weekends and simply play a little catch up for my Monday post. Make my life a little easier :)

Day 13: Friday the 13th

Most people consider this day “unlucky” I was born on a Friday the 13th, and they have been some of the best days of my life. This past Friday was no exception :) Mule ended up being off work and we headed to the “big city” to get him some glasses. And that meant that I also got to do some unexpected shopping. The “big city” is about an hour away, and I only go when I can multi-task the trip, so I don’t get to Hit up Hobby Lobby or Michael's very often

day 13 008

I got some lovely fabrics among other things. Made me happy!

Day 14: Finishing a Long Forgotten Project

Back in September, my MIL asked me to make her a turquoise necklace. I got half way finished and got distracted. I “discovered” it when cleaning up a neglected crafty corner and finished it up :)

 day 13 004

I love the way it turned out! I may have to whip up another for me ;)


Day 15: Mail on a Sunday?

With the unexpected trip to the “big city” I forgot to get the mail on Friday, and just remembered on my way home from church. Expecting nothing but bills, I was thrilled and surprised when I opened a mystery package!

day 13 012

I had won a contest back in the early fall, and sue to some unforeseen circumstances the lady who had donated the prize was delayed in getting things in the mail. I had pretty much forgotten about it. I LOVE the headbands and the wristlet! So cute :) and definitely worth the wait!

As long as the weather holds up tomorrow, I am planning in taking the pup for a walk at the community walking trails tomorrow and of course one of my trusty cameras will be keeping me company!

Day 11&12


Day 11:

PHOTOGRAPH with a narrow aperture.
the mountain mode | a large f/ number | all in focus

Mule needed to get his eyes check yesterday, so we spent the bulk of the day in the Optometrists office, and ordering his new glasses. So I wasn’t able to get any photography yesterday. I thought I’d share a picture I took in April on the weekend Mule proposed to me :)


Yes that is in a cemetery. I have a weird fascination with them lol. This one was particularly cool because there were veterans from the Civil War buried in it.


Day 12

12 things | 12 activities | 12 photos

I didn’t get 12 pictures, but I did get 12 handmade cards whipped up! This one is my favorite


I was all out of note cards, and I like to keep a good supply on hand :) Sending and receiving mail is one of my favorite things!

Day 10


Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate with my ideas for todays inspiration. The only pic I took was a blurry one of my puppy. So instead of skipping a day or stressing out about it, I though I’d share some incredible pictures I’ve stumbled across on Pinterest (please go to my pinterest page to see the original posts about the pictures below)



I have a whole section on pinterest just for photography I find inspiring. Anytime I have a shoot, I go through it to get my creative photography juices flowing :)

Happy Clicking!

A little Catching up… Day 6-9


Day 6:

PHOTOGRAPH framed by a doorway.
a person |  an open space | a view

projects 001

I did a Photo Shoot with the *L* Family in November at this same spot. Since then its burned down, almost completely :( I was hoping to get some interesting shots through the doorway, into the open fields beyond, but I still find this picture quite compelling.

Day 7:

PHOTOGRAPH one little word.
yours | in tiles | in a book

projects 052

I’m getting married soon (small private ceremony this month and bigger Celebration/party later this year) so 2012 is all about Love!

Day 8:

snow | cereal | parts or pieces

projects 030

Living in Texas, this is about as close to snow flakes as I’ll get… unless there is a freak storm like last year. I kind of hope that there will be… just so I can get some pretty pictures! :)

Day 9:

energetic | quick | stimulating


This is Scoot. He follows me pretty much everywhere. He is also by far the most energetic thing in this house :) It was quite rainy today, so we’ve been playing a lot of fetch.

Day 5


Today’s inspiration :

to determine | to transform | to commit


The top thing on my list of resolutions for 2012 is to get more organized so I can stay on top of the things that I need to take care of (house, budget, health etc.) So I purchased a organizer/agenda in pdf format… there sure are a lot of pages…

*taken with my iPhone*

Can’t to get this into its binder and get things sorted out :)
