bloomShoot Photography = Weddings, Families, and FREE Newborn Photography

I'm only a bad blogger on blogspot...I've kind of been focusing all my attention on bloomShoot Photography - a business I started recently.  Blog, Website and Shoots are so much fun!!! 

Yep!  It took me until I was 33 to figure out what I really love to do.  Crazy what a year and a great camera (actually, I'm on my 3rd great camera by now) will do.  

So forgive me for neglecting my personal blog, but I may return someday.  For now, head on over and see what the buzz is about...
Don't forget to check out babyBloomers - FREE newborn photography!

For a friend

I've got a little sumthin-sumthin going on in Kierstyn's nursery, but I'm waiting for my new camera so I can take decent pics.  It's not anything to write home about, but it's a post!

Think Modge-Podge, glitter, paint and a glue gun.

Oh, and the biggest hint is...yawn...could this blog get any more boring?...

...flower clip and headband expansion.

It IS out of control.  I have an addiction.  I could open my own superstore.

Poor girl.  I am afraid for her, especially when she has more hair on her head so I can play with it.

For today, I'm posting pix of my house.
I am an interior decorator and most of the projects in my portfolio are not exactly my style.
I live in a "city" of comfort and country and good ole boys.  Old World, Rustic, Country, Tuscan, etc.

See a theme here?

I appreciate every style.  I especially appreciate good design.  But you'll see that sparkle in my eye when I see something a little more streamlined.  Simple, clean lines. Elegant and glamourous, even.

I like shiny.  I like new.
I can appreciate a sofa that appears to be nothing more than a slate of concrete.
I could curl up on a giant purple bed in the shape of a huge circle.
I have house plans of the funkiest nature.  I will build it one day and you can come stay in your circular, multi-level guest room dubbed "The Observatory" with an angled glass ceiling for stargazing.
Just don't fall off the balcony overlooking the plush bed, sleek sitting area and 9' wide concrete gel fireplace.

What?  One can dream, right??? ;-D are some pics of my REAL LIFE modern-ish home.  Just for you, Jyl! Now it's your turn.  I want to see your house cause I just know I'll fall in love.
Even if it's not EXACTLY my style (nor should it be).  I can tell you have great taste!

Flower Clip of the Day

I am irrevocably addicted to the crocheted headband/flower clip combination. My sweet little girl doesn't go a day without something decorating her pretty little head. Here is a picture of her on her blessing day - she's wearing a boutique headband I bought, but I clipped the white flower clip (third picture from the bottom) I made onto it. It made it a little tall and bulky, but it's so pretty.

Oh, don't worry - I put a white headband with a bright yellow bow on her right after this was taken. Aren't her brothers cute, too?  We are working on some vinyl apps for their rooms.

Her Aunt Ashley gave her this bow. So stinkin' cute.

All-Star Champion Bragging Rights

I love the Cricut.  It saves me in times of need.  I made two of these signs at about 1 in the morning the night before the parade.  We had to get the word out that we won the Championship!

No time!

Wow - no time for Cricut!  Poor machine is getting dusty - I took the swiffer to it today.  I am LOVING having this new baby girl and so grateful I got everything done before her early appearance. 

I can honestly say she loves her room.  I know that sounds silly because she's 2 mos. old, but she smiles and coos more in there than anywhere, especially when lying on her changing table.  I think she likes the contrast of the bottom of the letters and the wall.  It's so cute!  

I may have to start posting other people's wonderful creations since I don't have much time.  I do have to do one big project today, though - a banner for the 4th of July Parade for my All-Star boys.  Hopefully it will be simple and quick.

Welcome Kierstyn!

Here's the little Princess - the nursery is for you, baby girl! 
Our little Kierstyn was born April 23.  She is 5 lbs. 12 oz. What a little pea!

Got the Frames

As if you haven't seen this nursery 100 times - the frames are up and even though her little handprint and footprint are still in my tummy, I can picture them! Can you?

The glider arrived yesterday and I'm waiting on my darling husband to pick it up. I can't wait!

I'm 34 weeks today so the time is closing in. Thank goodness. Can't wait to kiss my princess.

Here's the glider!  It is a chair and a half and SO comfy.  Perfect for reading books.
