triston + 6 months

tristonI did a photo shoot with Cassie, Carly and Triston on Saturday.  I’m really pleased about how well the photos turned out, especially since we were dealing with a bright afternoon sun and a little one.  The lighting, even in the shade, turned out to work well for us!  Check it out!


the few… the proud….

TuckerMy brother, Tucker, graduates from Marine officer school in Quantico, Virgina today!  I’m proud of him!  Wish I could be in attendance and see my family, but it just wasn’t possible.  We’ll get to see him in a few days when he’s driving down I-40 on his way to his newest assignment in San Diego, California.

Congrats, 2nd Lt. Jackson!  Love you!

Sew cool….

Santa brought me a gift I have been wanting a really long time! My parents got me the Martha Stewart edition Singer sewing machine. I started sewing when I was a kid, but never really got into it much.

I began sewing by hand on many if my stationary & graphic design projects. I’m looking forward to using my machine to make it a little easier and less time consuming.

My first project was a vallance for my bathroom. I had purchased about 5 yards of light aqua fabric from The Muse about a year ago & haven’t done anyhing with it. I went back and purchased a complimentary fabric with a yummy leopard print and some trims – which were splurge items. 🙂 I found an awesome curtain rod with brown glass knobs at Walmart for $13. The bottom trim matches it perfectly! It tries the room perfectly together! SO much better than the blinds that came with the house. I’ll post before & after photos soon!
