sometimes ya just gotta have lunch with a friend

It was so lovely to hook up for lunch yesterday with this cute little gal . . .  Miss Teresa Collins. I think we chatted about anything and everything . . . and we could have probably continued to chat for a few hours more. She's an absolute delight and amazingly creative to boot. Oh, and she has an incredible sense of fashion! Just too darn cute!Getting together with a friend is such a nice refresher in this crazy busy world. You just have to relax once in a while to help continue on with the mayhem of your life.Thanks [...]

missionary update

So, with all the snow that DC has been getting, I've been wondering if Zach has been okay on food. Yesterday when we were e-mailing, I found out they haven't been able to get to the store for two weeks and was getting down to nothing. Not only that, when I asked him if he'd gone to the stores before the storm, this is what he said:"haha shopping before the storm here is a baaaad idea ... everyone goes shopping before the storm .... we went to safeway before the big storm to buy some food for a member and [...]

something fuzzy

Whenever I feel something soft and fuzzy, I can't help but think of my dear friend, Kristy Banks, who loooooves anything soft and fuzzy by her face. Makes me smile. So of course I'm wondering how she would feel about fuzzy vinyl. It's soft, has texture, it's rich looking, and the black is about as black as you can get, which I LOVE.So here's a frame I shared on the Silhouette blog today. You can read all about it HERE.  [the frame i got at target a few years ago]I think great minds must think alike, but you'll have to [...]

my daughter, the photographer

So Kassidy has really gotten into photography as well. Shucks. It's a family thing . . . we all do it. :) She's a photo editor for the yearbook staff at her highschool and really loves taking pictures of sports--and "landscapes"--with a great eye for composition.She's been looking at the skateboarding, snowboarding and skiing magazines I have (yes, I get them for inspiration), and has loved what she's seen. It prompted her to find a guy that she could go take pictures of. Obviously she knows how to use Photoshop too. ;) She liked it as normal or black and [...]
