WARNING: Photo heavy post. :-)
Yikes! A little over a week since my last post. We've had some gorgeous weather here, so please forgive me for neglecting my blog last week. We played outside and ran errands. When the sun is out and it's warm, I love to go for drives. I go shopping even though I don't need or want anything, just so I can get out of the house. Do you do that? Target is where I usually hit up. I grab a Starbucks and just soak in the sun and walk around and get excited for cookouts on the patio, garden lights, the firepit, croquet (yes - I am a nerd), and flowers if I'm lucky. I do NOT have a green thumb, sadly enough. I wish I knew what I was doing when it comes to planting, but I'm seriously lacking in that department. I have to rely on flickr and blogs for ideas.
Here are some pics of patios that I luuuurve in my inspiration file:
I found those in a magazine last summer, but I can't remember which one!
In a Martha Stewart mag.
This next one just might be my fave. :)
This weekend I had a photography event. There is a conference for Christian authors in September that I am the photographer for, and this past weekend they had the board members for the ACFW in Indianapolis. My husband and I had a wonderful time away! I was busy, but on Fri. evening, we ventured out to a mall that has Potterybarn stores and Anthro! You all who have those stores where you live are some lucky dogs! It is such a treat to visit these stores and I bought a few goodies. My fave is this!
Nesting doll measuring cups (from Anthro)! Could they be any cuter?? Sigh. Life is complete. ;-)
To prepare for the photo shoots, I purchased some frame molds from Bake It Pretty. I made the chocolates and packed 'em up all pretty and put them in teal gift sacks. I also had my cute new business cards and of course had to have some professional (yet very stylish) liberty of london for Target folders!
My full reveals on those lo's I posted last week are up on the Crazy Daisy blog. =)
I also finished my mini. I chose to do a mini on all things "new and fresh" that I love. One thing that I like to do is pick out magazine pics that help to tell my story. I don't always have the time or patience to drive around town or go all over the house snapping pics of what I need to tell my story. I have plenty of magazines though and can always find a pic that fits what I'm looking for!
Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend!
