Christmas Maternity Photo Session

When your baby is due at Christmas time, it only makes sense to do a Christmas themed photo shoot.  A tree lot seemed like the best place to make this happen.

Christmas Letter 2013

My Christmas letter tradition brought a tear to my 15 year old son’s eyes this year.  I definitely think this is a tradition everyone should do.  Here is the link again if you need it.  http://tracys-trinkets-treasures.blogspot.com/2010/12/handmade-ornament-with-special.html?m=1

Vintage Mason Jar Holder Repurposed

I really like the Glade candles.  They smell good, burn well and are reasonably priced.  They also just happen to fit perfectly in a mason jar holder that I own.

Vintage Bells and Pine Cones for Christmas

My husband’s great aunt gave me some vintage bells and I love how they looked mixed in a bowl with pine cones and ornaments.  I added my trees I got from Hobby Lobby last year.

Christmas Mantel 2013

I saw a lit Joy for sale at Target and grabbed it.  I knew I wanted it on my mantel.  I also added a little $25 tree to the mix.  5W3A6019

I made the stockings a couple of years ago. I put about 4 to 5 pieces of copy scrunched copy paper in them to give them a little shape.

The hangers are curtain clips.

Cute Family Photo for Fall

I am getting a lot of response from a family photo I did last night so I thought I would share it here.  My client is pregnant and I brought some pumpkins for her family to hold in the pic.  So cute.

Stacked Books Made Into a Pumpkin

Once again it is time to bring a pumpkin to the dental office where I work for our annual decorated pumpkin giveaway.   This year I painted some books orange, added a brown glaze and tied them up with a green burlap bow and I am calling it a pumpkin. 

5W3A1440-Edit

I found a pumpkin orange spray paint at Walmart and used 3 different sized books to make my pumpkin.

Here are a couple more photos.

Camera Lamp

My birthday was in June and I had shown one of my coworker’s a cool camera lamp photo a couple of months before.  She happened to draw my name for my birthday and I was so surprised to see that her and her husband made me a camera lamp.  I just love it and wanted to share it with you.  I did change the lamp shade.  Hers was really cute, but I wanted a plain and simple shade and I already had one that was perfect for the lamp.

Gonna Mix Some Good With The Bad

I wanted to stop in and share about my summer vacation and let you know about some bad news I got recently.  Let’s start with the good. 

We decided to go to New Braunfels this year for vacation and we go the bright idea to buy a used boat and take it with us and sell it when we got back.

IMG_3019

We picked such a popular boat we sold it in New Braunfels and didn’t have to bring it home.  We have been in a severe drought in Amarillo and our lakes have gone almost dry so no reason to have a boat around here. 

Izzy loved the boat and tubing.

She also liked going on the kayak.

And she loved going to the restaurants with outdoor seating.

It was so good to get away and spend time together relaxing and having fun. 

Then I had to come back to reality and face some tough decisions. 

I have been diagnosed with a cancer gene called BRCA2.  It is what Angelina Jolie has only hers is 1 and mine is 2.  I am facing a hysterectomy and the decision to do a mastectomy.  I have an 85% chance I will get breast cancer.  Those odds pretty much suck. 

So I will be busy with doctor appointments and one maybe two surgeries.  I will let you know what I decided to do and how it all goes.

New Entryway Chest for Storage

I have been on the search for a chest that will fit in a narrow space in my entry way.  I need it for storage.  I have asked my friends on Facebook and they vote leave it as is.  My other furniture in my entry is black, but I think they are right.  What do you think?  Paint it black or leave it alone.  Keep the pulls or change them?

I did some redecorating in my bedroom about a month ago and took pics of it and then accidentally erased them all.  I need to retake them and show you.  I like the changes.

Have you missed me?

I got an email and I can’t find it in my stack of other piled up emails asking if I was ok.  I am and it felt good that someone cared.  I have been really busy with my photography business.   I have been doing graduating senior sessions and I love them.  I am using some of my projects I have posted about on my blog.

I have used my suitcases I have painted.

IMG_2780-Edit

I buy chairs that I don’t have room for because they fit in my car and can be carried to a field.

IMG_2610-Edit

I have to throw in an Izzy pic for those of you that miss seeing her.  She is sitting on a cool chair I found.

IMG_2471

I use my chalk board I made as a prop.

IMG_2200 copylight

I use my camera skills I started learning when blogging to do cool pics like this.

IMG_2092-Edit

And this.

IMG_1810-Edit copy

So that is what has kept me busy.  I JUST took down my Christmas d├ęcor from my porch a week ago.  That is so not like me.  I am itching to do a few things this summer when it slows down a little so maybe I will have something good to show y’all. 

Oh I have also been doing lots of working out and I can finally do a pull up!  I am so proud.  My house looks like crap, but my biceps are getting bigger.  Too bad there are only so many hours in the day. 

Oh one more thing.  Look how I caught Izzy sitting the other day.  Cracks me up.  I love that silly dog.
