FUN WEEKEND






I hope everyone had a fun weekend and spent some time with family or friends. I thought I would share a few images from our camping trip to the Suwanee River. The kids had a blast at the river jumping off the limestone rock, not really as crazy as it looks. We also took a hike to the actual Suwanee Springs where the water comes from and captured a few neat images to share. Just a short video, not so great from across the river of the kids jumping.

I APOLOGIZE TO THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE CALLED AND CAN NOT SEE YOUR GALLERIES, TECHNOLOGY IS GREAT, BUT ALSO SOMETIMES HAS ISSUES. HOPE EVERYONE HAS A WONDERFUL LONG WEEKEND.

Side Note


If anyone knows somebody in the Ocala area that quilts and belongs to a group that has some members under 45 I would appreciate any information. Of course I can not post without a photo.

Craft Nut


Alright, I know I already shared today, but wanted to just share my first block completed. I am one of those impatient, instant gratification type of people, so long term projects are hard for me to stay on track with. This has definitely been one of those projects, but I am going to keep plugging away slowly and hopefully in the coming months I will have an embroidered quilt to share with you all. Oh, and thanks Tricia for the kind words!

FAIRIES



A little bit of a big project I have been working on for about two months now, called Truly Scrumptious ( available at treasuredthreads.typepad.com) . It is little hand embroidered fairies, 9 to be exact 7 are finished and then they will be blocks placed insides of a patchwork type quilts. Something to do while watching American Idol, since I can never seem to just do nothing. Thought I would just share a little of my embroidery passion with you since these fairies are so cute, just like some of the fairy princesses I am lucky to capture in images.

Happy Mother's Day!




Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there! Thanks again for letting me capture those precious moments of your kiddos and families. As we all know, sometimes we need to just hold on to our moms!

Family





I meet such a wonderful family from Mt.Dora,that came up to do a session. With grandparents that were such good sports, after driving from Virginia just the day before. We had a good time, and captured a ton of memorable images. Just wanted to share a few before next week, because I know how excited everyone was.

Heartbreaking



Do you ever read or hear of someones heartbreaking tragedy. Today I had that experience and could not stop thinking about how awful if would be to loose a child. I can not even imagine all the little things that I would miss. So I took the opportunity to write down just a few things for each of my kids I would miss right now. Eventually I really will miss all of these things as they grow up and change. But for now I am lucky to be able to hug and kiss them goodnight, every night!!!

Miss Independent





"Miss Independent" was the song I kept hearing while working on this two-year olds session. She definitely knows in her mind what she wants to do, a confident woman already at two.

THE THRILL



Your faces light up as you hear the ringing bells. The thrill of hearing the ice cream truck's musical anthem, as it marches up and down the neighborhood streets. Still so excited to wait in the front yard, hearing it get closer and closer. Talking about what treats you plan to eat and the final scream as it turns the corner down our street. Ah...... to be a kid.

THE LITTLE THINGS



On location, or at your home, try to incorporate an item that your child holds dear at his or her age. It is wonderful to have a few images of something that your child holds near and dear. Because we all know as we get older, we might start to forget a bit.
