done

I finally completed the SFG Blankbook project. It was awesome to have a book full of spreads created by other artists in my hands. Everyone did such a wonderful job. As soon as I got the book I sat on the couch, with the kids on either side of me, looking at everyone's piece. I was surprised to see they enjoyed it as much as I did. Part of the project was taking a photo of myself with the case in a landmark of my home town. I chose one of the newest areas of our community. You can read more about the project and see a small sneak peek of my spread here.

By the way, seeing my hair like this is a rare thing. It's naturally very curly.



Well... the summer break is over for us. The kids go back to school tomorrow and I will resume what I hope is a more relaxed schedule. However, I can already feel that I'm going to miss my babies. The house is going to feel so very quiet. I hate the annual emotional tug of war I go through. I obviously want them to go to school but I also feel like I'm missing out by not being with them. Sigh.

This is one of my favorite shots of the summer. They were quiet, just looking at the ocean and completely unaware that I was right behind them. Love it.



One last thing. I've posted a new interview on Crafty Synergy. This time we get to hear a little bit about Elizabeth Soule and her work. I was very taken by her photography the first time I saw it. Enjoy!

  3. I love black and white photos. They're so retro, and easy to find great framing for.
