It's Saturday

I finally finished this kit I've been working on. It's called Funky Flowers. Now I need to take a picture that will go well with it. I also did a big frame collection. I won't post pics of that because there's TOO many. I had a lot of fun making those, but it took me forever.

I get my lights on monday. I'm so excited to try them out!

Picture time

I ironed my white muslin and took some pics of the kids today. I'm not enjoying the heat, but the lighting it gives through my formal livingroom is great!

I had the kids stand behind me to get the baby's attention. He had a cow. He did not want them touching me LOL!! He is so attatched to me. I was a mean mommy and snapped a pic of him crying. There are more pictures that I liked, just too tired to go through them.

We went to the fair tonight. The kids had SO much fun! Dallas won something for all of them. My crazy daughter wanted to know why she couldn't ride things like the zipper..... She didn't believe my response. " Heart Attack!!"
I have a feeling I'm in BIG trouble when she gets older.

It's been a few days

Sorry! I've been pretty busy with some photog stuff and finishing up a few kits. Man this stuff keeps me busy.

I got my new lens today! It's been so long since I got my cam for christmas and everyone has already gotten their 50mm. I had to wait, for a LONG time! haha
I tested it out today and I love that I have more room for exposure and an awesome DOF.
Here are a few snapshots with it. I only did a few of Marcus and Savannah. Charlie was busy watching TV. It's ok, though. I have some pictures of him in his T ball uniform! LOL

I made a big step today and purchased my lights (Alien Bees)! I can't wait for them to get here. They should come next wk. I will definitely have them before next weekend. I can't wait to see them. I really hope I can learn them quickly. I would love to get some great pics of the kids with them!
I'm SO excited! I got the pink LMAO!

I hope everyone is doing great! I finally finished that baby girl kit. I will have a preview done for it tomorrow.

Now I must get some sleep. I'm lacking BIG time. We've all had the stomach flu. You can image how much sleep I got with puking babies :( I'm better, the kids are better and now Dallas is sick. Thankfully it's just him and he wasn't sick with the other ones. I prefer one sick kid at a time ;)

One more thing

My husband bought me a flower for my vase, so it can come out of "storage" and a fountain. The fountain is very relaxing! I just lay on the couch next to it and want to pass out. We just need to find a table for it. Marcus is a pita and it's so hard to keep him away from that thing. We're working on it, though.

Here are a couple pics. Ignore the shiny spots on my den wall, it's semi gloss paint on top of flat paint. We had a change of mind on what color we wanted in there. We think we're going with the same tan that's in our bedroom and the formal living.

I'm alive!

I'm sorry and vanished! I've been so busy. We had the door stuff going on, then we had my daughters 4th birthday party and I've been working on 2 mega kits. I finally finished one. I wanted a baby kit that went well with most boy and girl outfits. Something you could use while you were pregnant and when you finally brought them home in their cute little carter outfits LOL! I completed the boy one and I'm still thinking about all the little things I want to put in the girl one. I'm just going to vector like 6 things and pick from there. Any suggestions??? LOL

What you see is the boy kit! haha it's called " A baby story" there's the boy edition and then there will be a girl one. The kit has 29 papers and over 60 elements in it. It took me a while.

Now I will show you a couple pics from savannah's birthday party.
She had a great time and now has so many summer outfits! LOL
Everything was princess this and princess that. Her cake, her plates, her napkins, her jumping castle....

Sorry they're so dark. I was playing with the strength of my flash and forgot how to make it normal, so the flash pictures always suck! I'll have to read my manual again LOL.

Easter kit

This is about as close as I'm getting to an easter kit! LOL
I thought about making eggs, but just didn't feel like it. I know, I'm a lazy cow haha.

Here it is. It's called First day of Spring.

I realized that one of the community parks right by my house is beautiful right now! Lots of lush green grass and bright flowers. I'm gonna try and take the kids over there for some pictures! I just bought Savannah a yellow shirt and there's huge yellow flowers on these bushes here. It's perfect! LOL

Then maybe I can drop the sat and scrap with this!

We finally got our new doors in!! I am in love with them. We do one more finish on the french doors and I can take that tape off the glass. I really, really want to see what it's going to look like once that's off. So much better than the sliding glass door and all of our "gold" knobs. Now onto fixing the backyard and my granite counter tops and new kitchen sink! LOL

Tada!! This is what I've been working hard on LOL! It's called "Chocolate Petals". Jo helped me pick out a name at 2am. Maybe tomorrow I will get this and my last kit (Colt) into some stores. I've been so busy trying to make these and doing household things. I'm still sick so that isn't helping!

This is going to be a very busy wk. We just had all our new doors installed. I'll post some pics tomorrow. I love them! I wish we were done staining the french doors in the family room because I want to take that stupid cover off the glass. I really want to see the "finished product"!!

I'm thinking Savannah's party will be on sunday. She wants a little mermaid theme. Not sure how we're gonna do that, but we'll work it out for the "princess". I took her to target earlier to pick out some toys. She only picked out 3 things, I'll take her again on friday. I bought her an outfit and want to buy her more this weekend. I love girls haha!

Oh yes.... That Watermelon Patch kit. The one I use for my blog. It isn't going to be sold this month. It will be sold next month. Something happened so you have to wait a little longer LOL! May will come quick though. Which reminds me... My first born is going to be 6 yrs old and I will have been married for 7 yrs!!!!!!!! I'm still in shock LOL
