I had a sale on ETSY today!  I'm so EXCITED!! Yay!

And now I am rhyming...so I will stop there. 

Quote for today:

I Already Broke my Promise!

I just realized that I had dedicated myself to including a quote with every post I make and I didn't follow through in my post before last! 

So.....here it is. As promised.

"I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman."
- Anais Nin

Take your Pick!

I am now selling sets of images in my ETSY shop.  Decorating your space is easy now that the images are already grouped together by theme!

There will be an option soon to create your own set of images! Pick any four images that you love and purchase them as a set!  Just make sure that you tell me which four images you want.

I am trying to stick with this quote for every post thing.  So here is the one for today:

"Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams."
- Ashley Smith

Dreamy Summer Polaroids

The days of summer never look better than they do when captured on a Polaroid.  

These are a few of the Polaroids that I have taken over the past few weeks.  They may be for sale in my ETSY shop soon!  

I'm also working on creating jewelry with my images. I haven't perfected it yet, but I'll let you know when I do.  

I think that I'm going to start adding a quote that I like to each new entry I post in my blog...starting today:

"You're off to great places! Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting. So...get on your way!"
--Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go!

Oh my Blog!

I have added four new images to my ETSY page! 

I wish I had more time to blog about what is going on in my life!  Right now I'm working on marketing my ETSY shop and getting some portrait experience under my belt.  I have a few portrait sessions coming up to help build my portfolio.  I am really, really excited!

Other than that, in my spare time I'm just walking around my little neighborhood taking shots of the little forgotten nooks and crannies and flowers blooming. The weather has been just perfect...not too hot, too cold, too windy.  It makes me want to close my eyes and breathe deeply.  Man, I love California!

This is my cousin's new puppy Kelsey.  She's a Schnauzer and totally adorable.  I just had to share the portraits that I took of her on my vacation.  

I can't wait to get my pet photography business started!  It is so much fun!!

Vacation is over...boo

So, I just got back from my family vacation.  It was a blast and definitely not long enough.  I love being able to spend time with my family!  Here are a couple of images from the trip. 

My cousin's adorable new puppy, my mom and sister, and my dad.  I miss you guys already!

Ok, so vacation starts right now!

I know I said that I was "officially" on vacation yesterday.  But, anyone that knows me knows that I am a work-o'holic.  I can't help myself! 

Anyway....I'm so excited! In my first week on ETSY I've been included in two different treasuries! I'm totally flattered! One is by bock1194 and the other is by Analiese.  

Thank you both for the support!

Ok, now I'm on vacation :)

Vacation has begun!

I am officially starting my vacation early.  There is so much packing and laundry and cleaning to do before I leave on Friday, that if I don't start my vacation right now I'll never make it to my plane on time.

Happy summer everyone!! I'll be back on July 12th.

New Images on ETSY.

I just added some new images for sale in my ETSY shop.

I'm about to leave for my vacation so there won't be any new images for a while.  But, when I get back I will have a ton of new images! I'm bringing three cameras with me.  

Gosh...I hope that will be enough!
