please excuse the bedhead…

I usually use this lens
(recommended by Ashley)
but the other day I got the itch to bust out my trusty 50mm lens again
and Eden helped me test it out…
she has just crawled out of bed,
so please excuse her awesome case of bedhead and pajamas.

Happy face:

mad face…

silly face…

I just won something face:
(blurry but still cute)

If you are looking for a new lens to take portraits with
I highly recommend this one
it’s fairly affordable and it blurs out the background for you,
making your pictures look more professional!

NEW “love inspired” pieces!

We have brand new pieces that were inspired by love
just in time to gift your Valentine!

Our new love list necklace (at the top) is double sided,
and each one is made from scratch by hand using fine silver-
it’s beautiful!
Our “love you infinity” necklace has been so popular that we decided
to make a matching “love you infinity” bracelet,
perfect for an anniversary date or a couple’s names.

Top left is our new “sweet love” necklace- composed of sterling layered with copper
and your loves’ names around the edge.
Our “chunky initial charm” necklace is so fun for girls of any age!
And the “sweet love” cuff is gorgeous for bracelet lovers!

The “sweetheart ring” has an antiqued sterling beaded band and a handmade sterling heart that can be stamped with up to 3 letters.
And the “gold bar” necklace is so sweet for a name or a meaningful word you’d like to wear!

share a blessing testimonies

For a couple of years you (our faithful readers) have been helping us “share a blessing” with others that may be a little down on their luck and could use a pick me up around the holidays by nominating someone you know. We have the grueling job of reading through each one (hundreds of entries are sent- there are tears shed sometimes!) and choosing some to bless, and then we send them a piece from us anonymously. This past Christmas we were able to send out around 50 “share a blessings”.
We recently received a few sweet “share a blessing” testimonies that we wanted to share with you:

these girls.

This is June Anne and Jill-
June Anne runs our production team and Jill handles much of the “business” side of things.
They come on business trips with me often (to wholesale markets, store openings, supply expos, etc) and we always have a fun adventure together–
complete with lots and lots of laughter!
They are truly amazing Christian women that love me and will pray for me,
and I’m so blessed to have them as a core part of my team
as well as becoming 2 of my closest friends!

back to reality and a couple of goals.

Sadly, Christmas break is over-
the kids went back to school and I’m back in the studio today.
 photo girls-dec2-2.jpg
We had such a great break, it’s hard to believe it’s over,
I had a hard time dropping the kids off at school this morning!
I thought Eden was going to shed a few tears also,
but she was brave and held it together.
 photo boys-dec13-2.jpg
I woke up yesterday morning and started cleaning, organizing and purging-
I realized as I was making dinner last night that I was still in my pj’s–
but it feels so good to start the New Year off a little more organized
and with less junk around the house!

I look at these pictures and I can’t believe how big my kids are getting!
When I first started blogging Eden (my youngest) wasn’t born yet and
I think my Caleb (my oldest) was 6-
and he’s about to turn 13 soon!

A couple of my “goals” for 2014 are to take more pictures of my family with my real camera
(not my iPhone)
and to blog more often
(I’ve gotten really lazy about blogging!)
I’d love to hear what YOUR 2014 goals are, and if you have a blog please link me,
I’d love to stop by!
