Our pumpkins...

Posted on | Sunday, October 31, 2010 | No Comments

I was inspired this year by the Design*Sponge DIY project, but I'm notoriously impatient and just free-handed my pumpkin with a spoon and steak knife. Maybe next year, I will take more time on it. :) Matt's is the bigger of the two. I like how you can see Indy in the background.




Amy's maternity photos

My big sis asked if I would take some maternity photos for her this past weekend and here are a few favorites. We were planning on more photos, outside, but the weather was really nasty, so we ended up doing a mini set indoors and hopefully, we'll have a chance to take more later.

I was just reminiscing this morning and thinking back to when it all began. I listed my first piece on Etsy in January 2008 and it's been this amazing (and sometimes chaotic) adventure ever since. Here's the first piece I ever listed back when we were renting a little apt in Keizer, OR, I was working in government, and I had to take pictures with an outstretched arm...

I still use this one for my avatar image on Etsy. My sis asks me why I haven't changed it yet, and I think I might be a bit nostalgic. That was a lucky piece that set the rest into motion.

Odds and ends

2010 Pumpkin picking :: Heiser Farms

Posted on | Monday, October 18, 2010 | 6 Comments

This year was the 9th time in a row Matt and I have picked pumpkins together. Where does the time go? :) We went to Heiser Farms again and had a wonderful time. The weather was great for pumpkin picking in Oregon. This was the fourth time we'd gone to Heiser Farms and this year, they moved everything around and expanded and there were just a ton of people. Lots of food, a petting zoo, hay rides, helo rides, train rides, pumpkin canons, corn maze and more. You can view last year's post HERE and a previous one HERE.





Wall of ego. :P

Until next year...

Happy Weekend!

I still have lots of work to do but if "working" could always be as beautiful as the way Elizabeth Messina captures it, even laundry day would be a delight!

Movie :: Dinner for Schmucks

Posted on | Tuesday, October 12, 2010 | 4 Comments

I forgot to blog about the movie Dinner for Schmucks the other week, but Matt and I watched it at the local discount theater in town and were pleasantly surprised that it wasn't half bad - we were desperate to watch something. It was actually pretty cute. Well, anyone that knew me as a child knows that I have a weird obsession with mice (and birds!). I really like them. Sorry if that is nerdy or weird, but I do! Anywho... I had no idea that there were going to be so many mice in this film! The character that Steve Carell plays is skilled in taxidermy and specifically, he stuffs mice and outfits them and builds entire scenes around them. I just love it! Sooo amazing and cute... you have to watch to understand. :D They are really impressive:
