stay awhile

*updated! see below

hello there

Having fun snapping photos around my home. I took these photos with my little seagull buddy Mr. Handsome gifted me for my birthday. I LOVE the grain in the photos. I miss that. I miss film. But I don't miss the cost of developing. Oh goodness that was shocking. I really do have to be careful and plan out some shots to make it worth while. I used to jump into the photo lab and reel the negatives and develop them myself. I plan on looking into renting a darkroom and processing everything myself. I always enjoyed that part :)

I also enjoyed playing with this months Kenner Road kit and having some pictures to create art with. It was so easy this time around. I usually regret not taking enough pictures throughout the month that when it comes time to create something I'm left using the same pictures in previous pages. (I'm such a picture repeater-shame shame i know).

Here are some pretty sunflowers for you to enjoy :)
hello beautiful
And here they are again with a cute little cluster and my favorite little bird. I like how the yellow pops out of the page. xo

I think one of my favorite rooms in our home is our bedroom. It's simple and sweet. I heart that little R!

I just LOVE the bird tags that came in the kit. I cut these little love birds out of one and added them to this page. It makes me want to rest and dream a little. I don't dream too much anymore and I think that's kind of sad. Do you still dream ?
"R" Rest

Me and the mister. I have so many fond memories of my birthday just last month. I'm trying to plan a little surprise for Mr. Handsome's birthday coming up in November. He's such a sweetie. He doesn't like getting his picture taken lol! Even still, he makes me happy :)

***** Updated the shop with the garland mentioned here: click here to visit listing
So last time we talked I had mentioned putting garlands up in my etsy shop. ( If you'd like to reserve one or have a custom one made please e-mail me) I had so much fun I made one for this page. XOXO. So the garland really isn't stitched to the page, it's taped down. I wanted this garland to be free. I couldn't decide if I wanted to hang it or stitch it down so now it's a little of both :) The pictures are just taped down over it to look like they are swaying in the air. The little bits of paper brighten any room.

What's happening around here:
Designing my sister's wedding invitations
Taking more photos
Still working on my webpage re-design
Finishing up a baby afghan. I will crotchet until my fingers bleed. I just started the little blanket yesterday and need to finish it by this Saturday. Yikes! (Wish me luck- lol)

I hope you have a happy week!
bye loves xo
