Yikes that’s a bird-tastic crew. My little Bauer has never willingly dressed up for Halloween (he’s only three.. but still). In September, I started asking him about what he would like to be. I gave him all kinds of suggestions that I thought would appeal to him including cars, trains, spongebob, etc. He turned me down to all of them. Out of nowhere a few days later, he said to me “Mom. I know what I want to be. A big, red angry bird.” I laughed thinking how funny it was for him to come up with that. Somehow, one turned into four (plus two other misc costumes I had already made) and boom. Look at Aunt Sharon as mad a bird as could be.
How cute are these little twinners? I have picture after picture of this same pose, but in every one they are pulling different faces.. So much energy!
When we first left for the shoot, I thought this little guy would not be into it. But he proved right off the bat that he is a photoshoot natural. Look at that G.Q. pose!
Thanks to Audrey for letting me spend a little time with her and her oh-so cute fam!
Onto my Brookie Cookie.. my lil sis, who always has a different idea of how photos should go then I do. We quickly ran up the canyon to snap a few.. We’re going to have to hit up another shoot to get the pics she had in mind. “I just want them to look like I’m on a little hike”- Brooke
So I have been slaving away. But don’t ask me what I’ve been slaving away ON.. I seem to have a slight problem with painting everything over and over again. But that’s another post.. I am happy to say that I have been working on my writing often, and I have actually been getting some things done around my house.. It’s decked out tackily in Halloween and one of the bigger accomplishments- my garage is almost clean enough to park in (As long as you don’t count the five pieces of furniture I bought last Saturday). I have had tons of fun photo shoots over the past couple weeks, and wanted to show this one..
I had the pleasure of working with a sassy little crew of ladies..
Do we love the tutus?
Super intense tea party. Many more cuties to come.. I’m a horrible blogger, but I’m trying my best to keep up with my projects.. Here’s a list of things I want to show that I’ve been working on:
Bauer’s room remodel complete with refinished vintage dressers
Bentley’s finished product of a room
Our homemade Halloween costumes
Our homemade Halloween decorations
My new refinished coffee table.. in indigo
My ruffle pillows
My under construction chandelier
They may not be that interesting, but I want to post ’em!
Plus many more photos!
See ya soon! I hope…
p.s. can I just say I am obsessed with this Bruno Mars song?? I am dorky enough to admit it’s getting me excited for the new Twilight movie!!
I am constantly inspired by Pinterest, and this latest project was taken from an awesome poster I re-pinned originally from a site called www.notonthehighstreet.com .. but I knew this was something I could easily make myself in photoshop.
This is how mine will look once printed..
Ah, we’re so in love.
It was really simple, I just put it together in photoshop and used margins.. using a text box per couple.
So I’ll post a new picture once it’s printed and in it’s oh so vintage frame. My bedroom is almost all the way put together!
My oh so cute in laws were up for some family pics (a little while ago..) and I happily explored Blanding, Utah for some spot that would work.. Can I just say that I wish this little place was here in Salt Lake? I loved everything about it.. except the heat, it was blasted hot.
This little guy rocked it like zoolander.. he had more poses than I knew were possible. Pretty much the funniest kid I know..
I have the cutest nieces and nephews.. every picture of her turned out so cute!
Love the blanding landscape!
The wind picked up, but we had to pull to the side of the road and grab a few.. I’m so glad we did!
Thanks guys for being so good-looking, and being good sports about how long it’s taken me to finally show you some pictures from your shoot! Luff your faces.
I’ve been making a lot of jewelry lately. I mean, a LOT. My mom is kind of demanding and orders me around like Cinderella to put together her own custom accessories. She’s a bit of a diva. I’m hoping that maybe if I share how I make this dangle beaded bracelet she will read this tutorial and make one of her own. Who am I kidding.. But maybe this will be of interest to someone! If that’s you, read on.
I chose this bead group next since it was so similar in color to the first group. And again, you just place and don’t sweat it.
