{A Holiday Photo Shoot with Miss Madison}

Did everyone have a beautiful holiday??? Mine was great! BUSY but fun! My husband and I went to Texas for a few days to hang out with my family and headed back to Maryland on Christmas day to hang out with Tom's family. While we were in Texas, I managed to fit in a photo shoot with Madison and Megan.

Let me tell you something,... this girl might end up a model. She is 7 and a complete natural. She came up with poses I never thought she would! :)




Megan wanted to give Kyle pictures of his daughter for Christmas, so we scheduled this last minute shoot for the 23rd, headed over to Mimi's for breakfast while editing as many pictures as fast as possible. I believe Megan took the pictures for one hour developing and got them framed and wrapped just in time.


These turned out great, I hope Kyle loved them.

a cute little outtake :)

{Fabric Christmas Ornaments}

Bowl of Ornaments

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! This year, for Christmas I made ornaments! I knew I wanted to do something a little different for most of my gifts, so I searched high and low for just the right handmade ornament. I found the tutorial over at the Knitty Gritty Thoughts blog.

Christmas Ornament

This tutorial was really easy to follow and I think the outcome is a fabulous little artichoke looking Christmas ornament.

Packaged Ornament

I sent some of these off to my friends in different parts of the country in their favorite colors, I gave some to my coworkers and I gave them to my family. I hope everyone loved them because I loved making them!
