Childhood Photo Redo


Okay, so I’m an only child which means that my childhood photos are pretty much just me. Solo. But my parents love me a lot – like, a lot – so a photo of just me is totally cool with them.

So for a gift this Christmas, to each of my parents, I recreated one of my more adorable childhood photos. I found this hat on ebay, and the glasses on amazon. And viola! Probably their favorite gift – a double frame with the old phot0 and the new, side by side…

Do it. Your parents will love you even more. You’re welcome.

Daily Notes, Picture Taking Time

Miles {2 Years Old}

I had SO much fun last weekend shooting a few photos of little two-year-old Miles! Mostly, I loved his hammy little personality and the joy this little family brought to a rainy day in the park! It is so fun for me to see them have so much fun together…how can you beat this??

If you want to see more photos, make sure to check out my full portfolio at Zenfolio.

Creative Crafting, Daily Notes

Photos on Canvas {DIY}

While this obviously does not compare to having your photos airbrushed onto a big ol’ canvas, this is such a great way to display your photos in a unique way. I followed this great little tutorial over here.

For my kitchen, I chose three food photos to put on 8×10 canvases. I had them printed at Walgreens, and picked up some canvas on sale from Michaels. After that, I just used paint, paper, and mod podge that I already had at home.

These two photos are Farmers Market pictures that I took a while back. I think they look just right sitting in my kitchen!

Also, please note my little shelf, which I bought for $2 at a rummage sale and painted with paint I already had (yes, it was black before). Not too shabby, huh?

It’s the perfect place to hang aprons and display my sweet boyfriend’s Grandma Ruth‘s biscuit cutters. Perfection.

Daily Inspiration

I admire the many beautifully inspiring bloggers in the world.  Creature Comforts is hands down one of my favorite blogs to visit alllll the time.  At some point last year, she posted this picture and made it up for grabs…and I instantly made it my desktop background.  I open my computer to this photo every day, and it has never lost its loveliness.

May this be a lovely, imaginative Picture Thursday for you…
