Taking a Break

Going to a festival for 4 days. Won't be posting, but will be photographing. Lots of pictures to come!

It Was Take Your Boots to Work Day - Did you Get the Memo?

Don't they look like they're saying "What the heck?! How'd this crazy thing get here?" Sometimes I crack myself up.

Rockin' The Boots in the Desert

Do you see why I love these boots? I mean really, they complete every outfit so well. And the dude? I have no idea who he is. I just saw his awesome red, white & blue getup and demanded a picture.

The Bad Dog & The Boots

Really wanted a picture of the bad dog wearing the boots. He would not cooperate. Go figure.

Pushin' Up Daisies

My poor uncle Ron. He's been buried and re-dug so many times I've lost count (every time we move). He resides in the back yard with the dead cat. It sounds creepy, but it's really rather endearing. Thought the boots looked mighty fine in front of the wooden headstone. Rest in Peace Uncle Ron.

The Boots Visit a Seattle Landmark

It was one of those beautiful Seattle days, where people come out of their homes and talk to each other again. The overlook was very busy. I was the crazy lady - not taking pictures of friends or cute babies in front of the skyline - just my beloved boots.

Boots - A Love Story

The story is epic, but I am tired. Picture is one day overdue. Story to come.

R.I.P. Boots

Warning - This may make you cry.

I cherish these boots. I cherish them so much that if the house was burning I'd run in and save them (after the family & dog of course).

I thought they made it in the house after burning man, but Steve discovered them in a bag that had been sitting outside since September. They are beyond redemption.

In recognition of the fine service these boots have provided, I will blog the story of them for the rest of February.

My tribute to "The Boots"

Random Gifts of Kindness

I know this blog is supposed to be about being creative, but I'm just not feeling it. Decided to instead share the awesome (and random) gifts I received today. Perhaps I will feel more creative after drinking gift 1. Oh... And I love them both (therefore they fit the Feb topic)

Quickly Creative

I love getting mail. The real kind. Sometimes email exhausts me.

Loving Forced Affection Day!

Steve gave me this heart shaped rock this summer. I lost it when competing in the limbo contest at a party (don't ask). Luckily the hosts found it later - before mowing the grass, thank goodness. I'm really thankful that it is back in my possesion. The poem is dark, but I love the poet and it fits the picture. Valentines day actually had meaning for me this year. Love is good.

Sometimes Less is More

Claire looks much better without the added "creativity"

Despite the Rain - I love My City

My house needs cleaning, my dog needs walking, dinner should probabAdd Imagely be cooked.

Cutting People's Heads Off

I'm embracing the fact that it may be my "thing". This strange compulsion to chop the top part of everyone's head off. That wouldn't be literally, that would be photographically.

This morning (rather than going into work on time), I played in photoshop. Not sure if I really like how this turned out, but it's all an experiment.
And I love this girl. She is an amazing old soul in a pint-sized body.

Life goes round & round

Sun came out today...for a moment. Ran to the carousel. Reminds me of childhood. What's not to love?

Just one more thing I love

I love toddlers. I especially love these toddlers.

11 Months of True Love

I wished it and it finally came true. 11 months of amazing love... worth waiting for. Thanks Steve. p.s. we celebrated with reubens & french fries for lunch. Reason 126 why I love this man.

Creatively Messy

Some might call my surroundings at work busy. I say inspirational!

I love that I get to be creative in my job. Not in traditional sense, but in a way that really works for me.

Monday Love

Actually I did not love today. Superbowl about kicked my ass. Might have been all the bud light. Might have been the dive bars. Might have been the really bad food at the dive bars w/jello shots. But here I am... creating away. Loved this trip to Montana. Got lots of great shots which have been very fun to texture photoshop.

Lovin the Teenager

She did not want to pose. Such is the temperament of 18yr-olds.

A Boy & His Dog

I love this man. His dog? Well... he's growing on me.

Lovin the Belly!

My darling friend Sara & her husband Shawn are about to have their baby. Quickly ran over today to catch the belly shot.

I work at a zoo. I don't take advantage of it nearly enough. I'm not much for animal pictures really (give me babies!). So what I love is captured in this image. The colors of the peacock and that I work at a zoo (and have the best job in the world)

Home Sweet Home

Sign says it all. Things I love, oh things I love...

Eyelashes to Die For

Visited baby Quinn & Shawna this morning. It was way overdue. He's such a happy baby.

Miracles Abound

Not feeling all that creative today so I took a picture of my believe rock that sits outside my door. Interesting how the universe can slap you upside the head with belief.
1. The house I made an offer on and lost, came back on the market so I made an offer again.
2. Steve (I love this man) bought us plane tickets to New Orleans for Jazz Fest (my birthday).
3. I came home to dishes in the dishwasher, clothes in the washer, my daughters super clean room and dinner started. None of those things have ever happened in the history of my 18 year-old daughters existence.

Loving food groups

Today I celebrate brussel sprouts. Love them. Crappy picture, but that's what I got.

Note to Self - Best to start new projects at 7pm not 10pm

Textures and layers! Fun! Oh Jonah... you don't look like such a bad dog when I antique you in photoshop. I love him and hydrangeas. They both are included in the February things I love.

Kelly & Linnea - Two People I love a Whole Lot

I'm starting a new subcategory in honor of Valentines Day. I'm not actually a fan of Valentines Day, in fact I tend to call it "forced affection" day. But since I have abundant love in my life - I thought I'd capture it. So starting today........28 days of things I love.
