It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Nope, it's not Christmas time... it's time to go back to school! I can't believe Emma is now in kindergarten and I'm joining the PTA! Halle is still attending preschool and no longer has her big sister to ride with her on the bus. And I think I was almost as excited as them to get their school supplies! I love school supplies!

So what am I doing now that they're back in school? Sitting on my butt and eating bon-bons of course! I'm actually just getting back into the groove and getting my chores done in peace. Have you ever tried to wash dishes or fold laundry with toddlers around? You get interrupted about every five minutes. And I can actually shower with the bathroom door closed and keep all of that lovely steam inside.

What else have I been doing? Well, I'm totally addicted to twitter. And I mean, really addicted. I've met some really super people that I'm going to add into the side bar over there later today. And you'll hear more about them tomorrow (if all goes well). I've also been working on my photography website and it is now officially located at . Take a look! If you're in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area and need some photos taken, hit me up! Mention the blog and get a killer discount, too. And with a new photography website comes...

New Business Cards!

These are what were stacked up in the last post... I made them in different colors. But can I say, because I've said it before, having nice, fancy, crafty tools really comes in handy sometimes! I was able to utilize Photoshop, SCAL, Epson wide format printer, HP scanner, Cricut Expression and Epic 6 Letterpress system. Yes, I have a few toys... it's a bit of an obsession. (And I can NOT wait to get my hands on Tim's new Vagabond!!) I was really pleased with the outcome, and these were so inexpensive. I only had to pay for the cardstock. If you're interested in my process of how I made the whole thing come together, let me know, and I'll be happy to post a tutorial.

I also made some cute little photobooks to send out to previous clients to notify them their photo galleries had changed online locations. I used some Creative Imaginations mini board books which are just to die for and so super easy to decorate... Enjoy the photos!

(Sorry, I had my portrait lens on my camera and was too lazy to change it! The bokeh is fierce!)

So, that's about it!!! Tomorrow I'm planning on posting about the Sketchbook Project through Brooklyn Art House Co Op. It's been dubbed, "A concert tour, but with sketchbooks." I'll explain more about it tomorrow or just go take a look (and sign up!) at it all! I only have a couple pages done but want to share them with you!

Super stuff! Love you all and thanks to all of my new followers!!!

I love those little photo books! They are just the cutest thing ever. I know what you mean about being addicted to twitter. I have an ongoing love affair myself. Can't wait to see your sketchbook pages. You are an amazing photographer. Thanks for stopping by my site today!
