I still have some CHA projects I haven't shared yet, like this layout and photo holder made with the "Park Bench" collection from Fancy Pants. It's my new favorite Fancy Pants line:)
So many fun colors and patterns to choose from!
So glad I have all these cute photos from my fun photo shoot with Gabby's darling little family to use. Nothing makes creating layouts more fun than having really fun photos to work with.
Back to my "Everyday photos"
Everyday photo (1)
Well, I think little miss Daisy might have missed me a little bit while I was gone last week, because she is quite lovey and sticking pretty darn close to me these days. Dan says they okay while I was gone. No major problems. Daisy kept going to the back door a lot the first day, but got past that after a while. Dan did use some vacations days and Wes was here on the days he was at work, so it's not like the dogs were alone much. Lets just say we have pretty spoiled dogs!
Everyday photo (2)
Well, although it's freezing cold here and very much STILL winter, with absolutely no signs of Spring.. I'm ready!! Painted my toes. Like someone is going to see them when I'm wearing heavy socks and boots all the time :( A girl can dream right? lol
Everyday photo (3)
This is something I see most everyday... It's the collection of things that hang from my rear view mirror. Silly I know .. but all things that are meaningful to me. What are they?
A crystal from a friend, a slide holder ( one side has a fortune out of a fortune cookie that says... " you will soon cross the desert to a ocean side vacation", which I got moments before finding out I was going to Puerto Penasco, and other other side of the slide holder is a photo of the ocean outside out place in Puerto Penasco :), The ring is from Mexico and the tags of from my beloved Aly pup.
Have you given any thought to starting a album of "everyday" photos?? I really believe "Everyday" photos probably say way more about us than "posed" photos. Oh what I would do to have more photos and insight into my Moms, Grandmas, and Great Grandmas everyday life, via photos and their writing. Oh.. I would study each photo and read every word. It would be so interesting to know their thoughts, and what their day was like. Funny, I'm sure they thought their everyday lives on the farm where quite mundane and uneventful most of the time, yet, I would find it all SO interesting.
Even if they had the luxuries we do to have cameras and photo printing at our finger tips, they probably wouldn't have thought taking "everyday" kinds of photos were of any importance. Most of the time the way you get a peek into some of the everyday things, is if they just happen to be in the background of a photo that was taken of someone. :) Granted, they just couldnt take photos they way we do these days. I remember even when our kids were little, I'd space out a roll of film thru a Birthday and Christmas, before taking it in to be developed. lol
Who knows maybe some day my kids, grandchildren, or great-grand children (if I have them ), will find my photos interesting... and if not... I will still have had fun collecting them :) And if I'm lucky to live many more years.... well... maybe "I' can look back at them and remember what was going on in my everyday life.. back then.
Thanks for stopping by!
