Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

Thank you so much to everyone who supported my holiday card fundraiser! With your help, I am able to send a nice check to my family member to support her cancer treatment. All of your kind words and positive thoughts are certain to help fill her with positive energy in the upcoming months.

I wish you all a very happy and healthy 2010. I know I am looking forward to the new year with lots of hopes for a very uplifting year. To quote Albert Einstein, “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.”

Holiday Card Update

Thank you so much to everyone for your support of the holiday card fundraiser for a very special person fighting cancer. I've created a few new designs for people and have added them to my post below. There is still time to order your holiday cards, so please consider donating to a very worthy cause and getting a special unique design in return!
