New Stuff

I've not posted in a while...I'm beginning a new photography business. I've been taking photos of my own children for 16 years. This summer I finally upgraded my camera, and started taking photos of friends' babies. I discovered that all my years of paper crafting has really prepared me for this! Color, composition, Photoshop, backdrop all works together to help make beautiful portraits. Now I just have to learn the business side of things...feel free to check out Thyme of Your Life Photography's blog to see some of the adorable babies and children.

On another note...I'm still making baby plaques. Personalization has always been important to me. I just shipped a plaque to a friend whom the military has moved across the country. She was the first one I made a plaque for. This is the fourth plaque I've given to her. Baby Isaac is due quite soon! She didn't know I was sending it, so am hoping it gets there in one piece and is a happy surprise.

All artwork if from Just So Scrappy Too's Outlet. The set is called "Playful Paws." I hand cut all the layers, instead of using my trusty Silhouette. Many of the parts are layered with mounting tape to add dimension.
