Hey there! So I know that I have been a horrible blogger lately! Lots going on so I thought I would share some of the random happenings here in our world.....
:: My adorable friend, Pam, helped me clean out my scrapbook room last week. It was much needed as I had been ignoring it and just dropping things everywhere and anywhere; making piles in every nook and cranny these last few weeks. I had a huge project for Making Memories that I created in between Creative Escape and a trip to Cali and that only added to the chaos! But it is looking good again and as the clutter clears away I find that I can start being creative again, so all is well!
:: I have been going through lots of photos from the summer and 1st day of school to print and use with my October Studio Calico kits. They are all organized and waiting on my scrap table and I am anxious to dive in. The exclusive stamps are amazing for next month so you really need to be on your game and snatch up the add-on kits before they are gone! You can check out the sneak peeks right here. I am also loving the mix tape by American Crafts that shows up in 2 of the kits!! LOVE!
:: Gearing up and getting excited for my photography sessions in Cali and Utah this fall! There are still some openings in all three locations....
Southern California - October 1st and 2nd
Utah - October 15th and 16th
Northern California - November 5th and 6th
.... so if you are interested give me a jingle (email) and we will get it all set! Thanks to my clients for scouting out some awesome new locations for me! I am getting super excited for all three places!
:: Also my fall schedule for Arizona photo shoots is filling up quickly and I can't wait to connect with past clients and meet the new families! This time of year gets crazy busy but I really love meeting up with everyone and seeing how all the kiddos have grown and changed! In addition to the regular shoots, I have some days set aside for mini sessions here in the phoenix valley as well so if you that's more your style we can fit you in! And in case you haven't heard I have brand new pricing for this fall which I think you will love!! Give me a shout and I will share the details!
:: Emily Jane is killing me lately (in a good way) with the hilarious things she says....
Every day when I pick her up from school she says "I call shot gun mom."
The other day when I asked her to get me a diaper and wipes she came back and said "I got a diaper but I can't find the wipes. But don't worry mom, you can just betend (pretend) you have the wipes." seriously! yuck! And btw, yes she is 3+ and isn't potty trained... please don't judge.... I am trying but she wants NOTHING to do with it!
:: The boys have all started soccer and they are loving it! It's Nathan's first time officially playing on a team sport and he is over the moon excited and feeling super big! He got his uniform last night and was smiling from ear to ear! He also wants to know if Emily can be a cheerleader for him during his games!
:: Edited this newborn photo shoot that I did recently. He was a little bit older and I was nervous he would cooperate but he did really great! He was awake the entire time which is different than most newborn shoots I do, but man his eyes are beautiful so it worked out perfectly! I LOVE doing newborn shoots in an outdoor setting like this.
On a side note I have never laughed so hard or had so much fun on a newborn photo shoot before! Who knew that this tiny little guy could be so funny and entertaining without even knowing it! Thanks for a great time Michell and baby! Enjoy!
:: And finally a question for all of you stampers and scrapbookers out there. If you have a great solution for storing your clear stamps, please share! I have tried a few different things and none of them have worked very well for me. I am looking to change it up and mainly need them to be easy to access and browse through so that I will use them more!! Help!
