One more down.....


Another one? Country Home has been published for 30 years.
Absolutely heartbreaking...when is it going to stop?

Seriously?


Okay another one....seriously I have subscribed to this since the first issue! UGH! I can't believe Domino is gone too! All my inspiration magazines are going away!!!!!

Heartbreaking

One of my most favorite magazines Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion has stopped publishing their magazine. My heart is broken - I got so much inspirations from this beautiful magazine and will hate to see it go. If you have never seen it - try and find some back issues....it will be worth it!

Yes We Did!

Barack Obama Inauguration Poster by Gemini Studio
What a day, may we all remember this day and where we were experiencing History. My brother and his family are there watching history, here is a cute little photo of my little nephew playing football on the National Mall.
So surreal to me that they are there watching this. While I was talking to my brother this morning - I could hear the same music on the television that I heard through the phone. For a really awesome way to "see" the inauguration go to my brother's blog. Change is Good!
Now lets go watch history in the making!

My friend Beth Gumnick

So....as I sign on to my guilty pleasure facebook this morning - my friend Beth was online and I saw her status was about being on Southern Living Online as being one of their favorite pet portraitists. SHUT UP - how fun???
So I thought I would have to share this with my blog friends. You may have heard of Beth through my blog earlier this year when we threw Chattanooga Artists Reserve together. So here it is - check out this link on Southern Living or here for a direct link.

For further info on Beth be sure to check out her etsy shop here! Girl I am super duper proud of you!!

Alana's New Headband

I can't believe I forgot to blog about this....eeeek! So my sweet friends Rich and Heather Smith came by and braved the cold at the Holiday Market at Chattanooga Market. Their sweet little Alana tried on a headband....well after seeing how great it looked on her, I just had to give it to her. It just fit her perfectly and looked too cute on her.

So Rich is a photographer (you have seen his work on my blog and you can go here to see more) and takes fantastic photos - well his wife Heather has started practicing photography and has gotten really great at it. So after Alana got the little headband, Heather used it as an opportunity to practice her photography and use Alana as her model with my headband on! The photos are fantastic, and I am just so thankful for Heather for posting these and taking such gorgeous photos!

Keep up the awesome work Heather. Here is a link to her blog so you can see her post about the photos.







what a beauty! Thanks again Heather!!! xoxo

My most favorite model


So my sweet friend Brittany has started her own photography business called Moncrief Photography - I have been so proud of her for her beautiful photographs, but of course my favorite ones are of her sweet little Ada - who has been wearing my onesies/tshirts since birth :) Well for Brittany's Holiday cards she had me make a cute new onesie for Ada to be worn during the photo shoot for the cards...and wow they turned out so cute! SO I feel very lucky to have Brittany as a friend - and what a great bonus that she loves my work and photographs her beautiful daughter wearing them! Thanks Brittany - and here's wishing you all the success in the world! Check out her blog here with the link about the cards and enjoy the photos below of the cutest little ada luv!
