Happy Birthday, Bean!!

Our puppy turned one on December 29th! It's been an exciting year with the new addition to our family. He still has much to learn, but I think he's going to be a great dog!

It seems everywhere you look, people are choosing a theme "word" for the year. I always felt really limited by choosing just one, so I refrained from every doing it. I found this word search on another blog, and the word I first saw was "wisdom". I realized that would be an awesome word to use as my word this year!

Favorite Projects of 2010!

Inspired by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's blog, I once again selected some of my favorite layouts and projects from the past year. Here they are, in no particular order.

Looking back at the work, I am amazed at how much I like them! Although I felt a lag in creativity in 2010, I did make some things I was happy with. When looking at them for similarities, I discovered that many of my projects are heavily distressed and inked, many have a soft and romantic feeling, and many feature a single photo (my new goal is to do more multi-photo layouts). Circles are a common element used throughout the work, as are photos of children and animals. I don't know what that says about me, but it is interesting to look at!

A few photos from the tree farm!

I've been in a real funk lately with photography, ever since I killed my beloved Minolta D5 by dropping it last summer. Joey was kind enough to lend me his new Kodak Easyshare camera to get a few photos at the tree farm last Sunday!
