New Blog

Photography is a big passion of mine, if you can't tell. Ha! I decided to create a photography blog for just pictures. I am starting to do some photography on the side, nothing too crazy( Duke Hospital, family/newborn portraits) so those shoots(not the hospital shoots) will also be on my blog. Hope you enjoy!!

Why Buy It

Goodbye ugly camera strap...

Hello pretty camera strap cover!

This was one of those "why buy it when you can make it" projects I have been thinking about doing for a while now. I saw some on a blog and decided to whip one up yesterday while the boys were playing. Here it is in use...excuse the crappy cell phone pictures....

All I did was sew some quilted batting to my fabric, sew it together inside out then turn it. It was JUST wide enough for my strap to fit through!

Jammin' Out

I decided to be DJ Mom and make a mix cd for us to jam out to on our rides around town. Mr Baby loves music and loves to groove to the music so I wanted some songs we could play at home as well for our dance parties in the evenings. I searched through the children's music on itunes and found a bunch of great songs. My favorites are by an artist I came across called Caspar Babypants....

His songs are folky popish and not the typical sing-song annoying kids songs. His website is simple and kinda plain, so he might be an up and coming new artist(or they just don't want to put money into a "fancy" website, haha) but the music is fabulous and so cute! I think D will like these songs when he is older too! Some more artists on our mix cd are Laurie Berkner, Raffi, Peter Himmelman, and Genevieve Jereb. Of course, I also included some of my Zumba songs like Big and Chunky because D likes to dance to these at home. I caught him on video dancing to some heavy metal so I will have to post it, pretty darn cute if you ask me!

We now have...

A pretty guest room! I felt so bad for my mom, Jenna or anyone else who has stayed over in our guest was straight up ugly. We never got around to painting it(now we just have the office/playroom to paint) and it became a storage room for the multiple baby items we have accumulated. I don't have a before picture because frankly, you don't want to see a before picture. Yuck. Just imagine off white walls and a bunch of stuff in a room. I painted the walls and cleaned up all the stuff on the floor. We also have some exercise equipment so it doubles as our exercise room. Here are the after pictures-
We had a twin bed in the room when I took this picture but this weekend we switched it out for the queen bed that was in there before.
Viking pictures-a ship and a shield

There are still a few things to finish up the prettiness- a mirror above the bed and some shelves on the wall next to the bed. I may steal an idea from my neighbor and spray paint a bunch of old frames white for a collage. It is starting to look like a guest room now, but I will post a picture of the finished room when everything is up!
