the blog lag and a busy season

as you’ve probably noticed, i haven’t been around blog-land much.
sorry. i’ve decided to release myself from the stress of having to blog.
it feels good and quite freeing.
although. i do miss you all!

so… what have i been up to?
we’ll be getting our new catalog back from the printers on thursday! yay.

lex (my oldest-17) went to prom.
jess (11) did her hair & make-up. very sweet.
i super love this pic of little sister taking care of big sister.

jess – 2nd from the bottom
soccer season for both my girls is ramping up again.

my love for  instagram continues!
you can find me under close2myart

and, we still haven’t sold our house. boo.
but on the up-side, i get to collect the yummy strawberries from the garden there! 🙂

picture taking & catalog prep

i can’t believe it’s been a whole week since i posted last!
there’s been a lot going on i guess.
my dad’s been in and out of the hospital for one.
he went home today and is hopefully home for good.
this is the first time i’ve ever had a scare of losing one of my parents. no fun! 🙁

the other big thing that i’ve been doing is taking enormous amounts of product shots.

we do a catalog once a year and this is that once.

a little peek at one of our new picture frames.
i totally love this picture of jess when she was little.
she used to be so cute. hehe!
