Ok Nic ok...

I'll give you a little something since you asked so nicely and I love you so much :) It's all true, my life is crazy busy right now!!! I'm so excited that my start in Photography is being so warmly accepted and I've been lucky enough to photograph some very beautiful people! Also I'm currently packing up my little life here and moving it about 40mins up the west coast! I'm very excited because I have never lived away from my parents before, even when I had my baby girl they were so so so great about it all and supported me through this difficult time! But, it's time now to depart and start our own little household :) So anyways it's a very cute little cottage and I'm very excited! So that is what I've been up to and it explains my absence....hopefully haha. Here is a little sneek peek at a wedding I did last weekend. Sorry Nic, nothing you haven't seen before haha. Hope ya'll like these!!!

sunshiney day....

Wanted to share a recent shoot I did with my friend Lindsay. We were downtown and got a little caught up in shopping(what's new?) so we only got about 7 minutes of sunset in which to get these shots! I love how they came out though :)

Again I left you...

...without a dope beat to step to....

K it has been SO LONG...soooo ever long since I posted, I'm in editing mode about now and have some pix to share. It seems like ever since I got back from Quilt Market in Portland...wayyyy back in MAY, I haven't had a moment of time for any online business at all! Real life was calling and wanted to be enjoyed :) So anyways, if anyone ever even reads my blog anymore, I had such a great opportunity to help shoot a wedding with my ever so fun friend Gyl. It was GREAT. More than great, awesome people, fun people, willing people. Loved every minuet of it!!! Here are some shots I got. I havn't edited many cause I'm still working on my first wedding...and I don't want to commit editing adultery...that would just be wrong lol.

So If you need to, please send me a message through flickr or Etsy. I am more likely to get the one through flickr though. Thanks peoples and sorry if you are waiting on a response!!! Links are on the right sidebar there, thanks so much!

I really don't have anything interesting to say yet. But I wanted to at least update the old blog with a new pic from my new camera. I love it :) This is T on the ferry on the way down to Quilt Market where we had a stupendous time! I'll post about that later. I'm totally sick and my brain can't think of good stuff to say so...

I love it :)

I am SO freakin excited to tell you that I am now the new owner of the ever awesome Nikon D80. YAY ME!!! I have been wanting one for a long long time. I fondled alot of cameras in alot of camera stores...alot. I always came back to the D80 though. It just feels good in my hands :) I got to take a few pictures yesterday, but more today, but I haven't left auto mode yet. That would take concentration, I didn't have any of that today. I'm a little bit worn out feeling, on account of the kid and her constant constant whining and complaining. Now that the sun has come out, it's worse than ever. She says it's too shiny...yah duuuhhhhh...and what am I supposed to do about that? Anyways, there is only so much one can take before one starts to just shut their brain off in order to just survive the day until bedtime. Then the brain can come back on, but it's not like it's in smart mode really. Ok blaa baaa blaaaaaaaaaa. Let's get to the point I just wanted to share this photo I took today with my new nikie... yah, I just called it a nikie... and what?

Lemonade & Lightning Bugs

Us girls at Limevine are having our very first guest launch! It started on May 1st and lots of gorgeous auctions are currently running with more to come :) This has been the funnest group of ladies that joined in to party on the Vine! Not to mention the mass amounts of talent and creativity...and FUNNY! Oh my. Ok so here is my design, the skirt is mad full! I couldn't get a decent twirling shot though cause one time Taya fell down when I told her to twirl and now she is just so sure that she is going to fall again. I tell her she won't fall and she makes herself fall down on purpose just to prove me wrong. The words of Rafiki come to mind here.... It starts. Anyhoo, the launch, every listing just looks amazing! Presentation and designs both, these gals are top notch! All my favs in one place, gotta love it!!! So please do check out the launch here. And you can check out my own listing, Sand & Sea, right here! Thanks so much lovely people! Hope you are having a great weekend :)

Verify this...

So I finally figured out why I'm such a lurker on other people's blogs and hardly comment. It's cause of those stupid word verification things. Like there is even a "word" to verify. It's a bunch of stupid jumbled up letters, and sometimes numbers, that are for the most part fairly obvious and non-distorted....yet still they don't work. I'm not dumb, I know I typed it in right. YOU are dumb you word verifier, it's alllll you!

new shoes...

Ya know I'm really not one for wearing converse myself, but when I saw these little beauties sitting in the shop, I just HAD to have them. I even waited 6 whole months to get them too! Finally last week they became mine :) HOW cute is that Little Red Ridinghood?!?! And those little mushrooms!!! And the turquoise/red combo!!! Oh my word I love it!!!! I mean this is probably the only pair of converse I will ever own, but totally the best pair ever :) They are part of the 1hund(red) Artists thing that Converse is doing. These ones are by Camilla Engman. Anyhoo, that's all I got! Back to sewing for me!

And the winner is...

Lucky number 17 - Erika Cass!!!! Yay for you!!!! I'll check out your blog and shoot you an email in a little bit! Congrats to you and thank you to everyone who entered!!! I will be having another contest shortly, probably not the 'post and enter' kind, but something similar :)

And you know what? My third favorite number is 17 :) Here is why:

'17' - smashing pumpkins

17 seconds of compassion
17 seconds of peace
17 seconds to remember love is the energy behind witch all is created
17 seconds to remember all that is good
17 seconds to forget all your hurt and pain
17 seconds of faith
17 seconds to trust you again
17 seconds of radiance
17 seconds to send a prayer up
17 seconds is all that you need

And since that song is an instrumental, and only 17 seconds long exactly, I will post my second favorite number as a song. Thirty-three :) And sorry, I don't know how to stop it from playing automatically! I find that annoying, but I can't stop the madness!! (I took it off, it was ticking me off too much)

I need help!

Well, I have no idea what I'm doing and I need some help. I want to start selling locally but the locals are not interested in paying the kind of money I'm used to getting online KWIM? So I need to sell simpler things. The only problem is that I need to buy fabric wholesale and I don't know how to go about doing that. If anyone can lend me a little hand and help me out I would be forever and ever grateful!!!! I have a source for wholesale AA gear, just need the fabric :) You can email me at if you are able to help. Thank you!!!

It's a real shame you know...

It's a shame that I like my hair best about 12 hours after it's been washed and done. Which is usually when I'm on my way to bed or just laying around on the couch, and usually about 4-6 hours too late. When it's freshly washed, its frizzy, when I straighten it, it's flat. I use a root....fluffer upper, whatever that's called...and it does work...but like I said, it still looks best 12 hours later when I've run my hands through enough times to calm the frizz and it's straightened itself and the ends have curled themselves under. Ah well, maybe someday there will be someone else around to enjoy my good hair at that time of the evening :) Anyhoo, just sharing that little bit that was on my mind and also I have this little number ending in the morning. So far no action on it, but it's one of my favs (do I really say that ever time?). And I have this here adorable dress available on And last but not least I have these two resells available and ending in a day and a bit. Welp, that's all for now I suppose. I'm headed for a teensy trip up Island tomorrow for lunch with family. I used to live there for two years and it sucked a butt. Just a visit should be ok though ;) alrighty, laters!!!

Tap this thing on?

Little Taya has added Tap to the dance roster! She loves ballet too so I picked a class that is half ballet then half tap. These dang shoes cost a fortune!!! And she said they were too slippery and took them off. Harassed for MONTHS I have been, a jillion dollars I spend....and she takes them OFF. Jerk! But I think it would help if the teacher didn't have them running from one end of the room to the other in them? Plus there are mirrors on the wall and most of the kids just stare at themselves the whole time, so now they are watching themselves run with the slippery's not good. Hopefully next week will be better. Those are my baby's striped leggies there :) Can't get enough of these striped knee socks!!! Ballet tights suck! First off-they don't match ANY bodysuit I could ever find. Secondly-they snag and pill real easy. Third-they stain real easy. Fourth-they cost too much. Fifth-you can only use them one place. Sixth-they get that little old man wrinkly loose skin look right at the ankle and that really drives me crazy. And seventh-people love striped knee socks! I suppose the fifth reason could go for the bodysuit, tutu and footwear too... but whatever. Anyhoo, just wanted to share that little pickie! It's so hard to get a good shot...them there 3 yer olds is wiggley!

Thanks kid!

So Taya keeps sitting on the toilet without putting her kid seat on there. And she falls in every time. It's at the point where this is now ticking me off. I have given her the lecture about putting on her seat so many times it's not even funny. So tonight I'm givingher the lecture, because once again she has fallen into the toilet, "You HAVE to put on your seat Taya, the seat is for girls with little bums like yours so they don't fall in! You have a little bum so you need a little seat! " and she replies "Yah, only mama has a big bum" .......ok ummmm.. totally not my point but whateveeeerrrr! "Yah...that's right..."

P.S. I Love You

More like PS I love Jeffrey Dean Morgan! Oh man guys, you GOTTA see this movie! Love love loved it! Bring kleenexes cause you will definitely cry. I cried alot so that means you will probably cry at least half as much as I did. I'm really bad with the crying thing. I always imagine that whatever terrible thing is happening, is happening to me. Especially when people die. Ugg that is the WORST! But on the bright side, a nice...very nice bright and sunny side get to see Denny naked. Yes, that's right ladies... naked Denny. And it's as good as it sounds :) And plus he sings, and plays guitar... and carries a bail of hay... a big heavy one:) Also there is Harry Connick Jr, and Gerard Butler. So pretty much it goes cry, drool, cry, drool, cry, drool... Well you get the idea. I love it, can you tell? I hope I get to marry one of those men that get better looking as they age, like George Clooney or Jeffrey here. I gotta give Hillary Swank props too, she was really good! Prolly why I cried so much. And this is definitely not a movie you go see with guys. Go with girls for sure! K, g'night!
