Custom Work!

Here is just a sampling of some custom work I've done recently. Would you like something framed and/or matted? Just ask! I'll be happy to work with you! The framed 'There's No Place Like Home' was a lot of fun to do! Frame bling done by me too!

I did a search on Etsy for 'English Bulldog' just to see what was new these days. Up popped this ridiculously cute English Bulldog decal for your laptop! These decals are from Ivy Bee's shop, so head on over there and take a look around, she has plenty of fun and funky decals for your computer! Have a great weekend!

aug:23 Napping puppy paw

Project 2010:365 August 19-22

There's probably going to be a lot of photos in the upcoming days featuring summer produce as we wind down and say goodbye to it until next year! Despite the excessive rain in the beginning and the extreme hot and dry the rest of the time, I definitely enjoyed my first season paying attention to what I was eating in the summer!

aug:22 Pears from our Farmer's Alliance. I didn't know our conditions were suitable for growing pears!

aug:21 Hello there. I think I'll stand back here as I take your photo!

aug:20 I've been watching this tomato as it has grown, it's almost ready!

aug:19 That piece of watermelon sure was a lot of work to eat!

Project 2010:365 August 16-18

aug:18 Since making our porch garden, we've met some new friends.

aug:17 'I'm hot. And bored.'

aug:16 She requests that the help fluff her pillows before her afternoon nap!

Project 2010:365 August 9-15

aug:15 A photo from Miss Lauren's 6 month shoot. I am in love with this image!

aug:14 Ok, seriously, this is perhaps my favorite thing I've eaten all summer. These were so good and so sweet! We ate them plain, with salads, and I roasted some in the oven with garlic, balsamic, and olive oil to put on chicken, bruschetta, toss with pasta...

aug:13 We had a gorgeous lightning storm!

aug:12 Are you in the KC area? Head on out to Art Unleashed on Friday Aug. 27th, and bid on my print!

aug:11 Week 14 of our Farmer's Alliance - Okra (which I have discovered that I DON'T like!), summer squash, melons, cherry tomatoes, hot peppers, blackberries

aug:10 Time to head back to KC! I thought it was hot in Iowa, the temp read 82 when I left, by the time I hit KC, the temp read this! Blech!

aug:9 This is my sister's dog, Cody. She's a sweet girl!

Project 2010:365 August 2-8

Whew!  I am still trying to catch up!  I went to my home state of Iowa to see my family, including my ridiculously cute 5-year-old nephew.  Sooooo...most of this post is going to be all about him!  

aug:8  This kid could hula-hoop all day long!  Not his Aunt, however.

aug:7  That's cotton candy ice cream (that had gummy bears in it) all over his chin.

aug:6  New haircut!

aug:5  We went to one of those 'paint-your-own-ceramics' places and he painted an airplane!

aug:4  This ice cream was almost as big as he was!  He paused for just a moment to ham it up for the camera

aug:3  Drawing...he looks like he's a lefty, just like his Aunt!

aug:2  This is 'Orange Cat'.  No, really, that's the name that stuck when my parents adopted him!

Miss Lauren - 6 Months Old

Miss Lauren is 6 months old!  Wow, this time has gone by fast!  We really lucked out today...after almost 2 straight weeks of temps over 100 (and the heat index was above 110!), we finally had a break in the heat and ended up with a very pleasant morning to photograph this pretty little lady!
