The Cobbler's kids have no shoes...

I love the old saying about the Cobbler's kids who have no shoes...perhaps his kids wouldn't let him measure their feet?

Here is what happens when I whip out my camera at home:

So, now there is no wonder as to why I don't have beautifully framed and matted photos covering the walls of my home! The photographer's kids have no pictures. Because they refuse to pose!

So...I resorted to snapping this shot of my freshly painted toenails. I broke down and bought black nail polish because as Dr. Evil would say, "I'm hip, I'm cool."

I wonder if the Cobbler himself had plenty of shoes?

Two posts in one day...

...because I have loved this shot since the moment I captured it...and because the owner of those fabulous red shoes said I could...and because I found some new textures that were so fun, I couldn't help myself!

A couple of baby templates...and a Christmas Card!

Here we have two examples of baby announcements...thanks to two fabulous designers who "paid it forward" over at the Pay It Forward blog. Thank you, Jenica at Lemondrops Photography and Lindsay Docherty Photography--I am thrilled to offer these to my clients!
Here is a great announcement that can be used for baby girls or boys.

This annoucement is also available in pink.

A Christmas's about that time to start booking family sessions with photo cards in mind. Here is an example of a 5x7 card...thanks to LCH Designs for this fabulous template.

If I had another baby...

I would buy all this stuff! When I see great products from fellow small business owners, I get really excited and love to spread the, here is what I am excited about these days:

This birdy onesie is so "me", that I would love a T-shirt version for myself!

I have seen and felt this diaper bag--the stitching is flawless, the canvas is durable and the pattern, well...who can resist polka dots? These are two different bags here, just in case you were wondering. The brown version has polka dot handles!

And now, the onesie that I want to stock up on for baby shower gifts:

My favorite treat...

is super simple so I am going to share it with you all!
1. Melt white chocolate chips and spoon onto pretzels.
2. Top with M&Ms (perfect for the holidays because M&Ms have seasonal colors!)
And out because they are addicting.
