This is one more piece from my Great-Grandfather. It broke at some point in my care. I discovered my neighbor makes jewelry and I asked him to help me with this necklace. He made a ring and new necklace. Wow! What talent. And because I can’t pick a favorite picture … Here is a quick [...]
My Great-Grandfather gave me these necklaces when I was little. It is one of two memories I have of him. He made these himself; he enjoyed lapidary. Coming across these a couple of years ago triggered something in me. For the first time I felt a closeness to my ancestors. Shortly after that other events [...]
When I was a little girl (too young to remember but I’ve heard the stories) my Grandma (Dad’s mom) made me my very own popcorn tree. She used plaster of paris in a soup can for the base and she hot-glued popcorn to the branches. I loved my popcorn tree and decided to make one [...]
My kids and I took a walk down our street today to photograph the blossoms. The three of them had to share my old Canon Digital Rebel 300D with 50mm 1.8 lens (put into Aperture mode and left at 1.8, oops) and my iPhone. I haven’t looked at the iPhone pictures yet. First I’ll post [...]
We attended the funeral service for my Grandma today. It was lovely and I was very glad I could share the experience with my kids. And before you even start to offer your condolences, keep in mind I am very happy for her — She is with Grandpa! This is my corsage (the special granddaughter [...]

From Saturday’s wedding. This boy was capturing a lot of pictures during the reception. I asked him if I could take a picture of him taking pictures. I thought the first shot was cool …. but the second shot … the second shot was awesome! I have a lot of great pictures from the ceremony [...]
I thought these pictures needed their own blog post. My sister was married for time and all eternity this last weekend in the Spokane, WA LDS Temple. My sister, her bridesmaids, our mom, and her mother-in-law made the flowers for the wedding and reception. If you know my sister, you know she is very crafty [...]
A while ago I posted pictures of my food on one of those social networking sites and one of my friends said her husband thinks she is weird when she photographs her food. What?! Doesn’t everyone photograph their food???
My eldest took fresh flowers from our yard to school for an art project – they pressed the flower petals and leaves between two layers of laminatation. I loved the look so much and our octagonal window in the front room needed something pretty. My eldest collected flowers from my grandparents yard (her great-grandparents which [...]
