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!

Trying Something New

I have a huge love of crafting and memory keeping. I spend a good deal of time scrapbooking and recording my family's memories and love the entire process. One area that I would love to explore more is the art journing process as I love all of the mixed media tools and influences. But it makes a huge mess, especially when the kids are around! So when I learned that Jessica Sprague was offering a digital art journaling class, I jumped at the chance to sign up!

It certainly has a learning curve for me, but it is such fun playing around in photoshop and discovering all of the immensely cool things I can do! Here are a few of my first creations...I can totally see me doing much more of this!







It was a blast to learn so much and try something new!
