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 ย 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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! ๐Ÿ™

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 jessย when she was little.
she used to be so cute. hehe!
