Little Shrines of Inspiration

 It was such a hilarious crafting night creating these little shrines of inspiration. We had too much fun laughing and making these one of a kind creations. With some friends in town from Arkansas it was sure to be a memorable evening. Images of our little shrines, the messy table, Jill Sweeney's artwork, and more little shrines.

Summer reading list

My summer bucket list also included reading ten books. I am feeling the pressure to complete this by Labor Day. There are so many great books out there. These are a few of the ones I have been reading. If I had to pick one that everyone should read it would be "Left to Tell" it is amazing true story that will touch your soul. Immaculee Ilibagiza tells her dramatic and haunting story of surviving the Rwanda genocide.

Photo Shoot

I love taking pictures! Lately, it has been a hobby of mine. I received a new camera from my hubby for my birthday and I love it. I'm not into posed pictures...I just like capturing people and things in a natural  state. So when my friend, Lisa, asked me to take some pictures of her family I was thrilled. I love her kids and I knew they would be good sports. It was a good lesson in what works and doesn't. We tried a number of different shots. My favorites of the 350 pictures I took were the ones of them just being themselves and catching a brief moment. There were just too many I could have posted but I really love these!
