13 months and some babbling

Babbling from me...not the baby! Read on...
I'm a few days late, but here is the 13-month picture with Monkey.

Barrett started getting a runny nose on Thursday morning, so as you can tell, he wasn't too thrilled about being photographed! Happy 13 months, Little Bear...get well soon!

I'm in a picture funk lately! After having my sister-in-law's camera a few weeks ago, I don't really have the passion to pick up my Cyber-shot. My husband will be mad at me for saying that :) He tells me that our camera is nice and kindly reminds me that when we bought it, I loved it and was happy with it! I know, honey! It's a great camera and I'm glad we've had it to document the first year of Barrett's life. It's awesome to have a little camera that I can carry around in my purse at all times...but I'm excited about getting a SLR! I'm saving up and hope to get it in the next month or two! My amazing friend, Bethany, is ready to upgrade her lenses, so she's giving me a great deal on her kit lens and a 50mm {1.8}. She's a budding photographer and knows a lot more than I do about it, so she's been great at helping me figure out what I need. She's a super creative girl and she's going to start doing blog design...go check out her blog if you're interested in a face lift!

I've also been scoping out camera straps! There is some cute stuff out there! I can't decide if I want a strap cover or the fabric stitched right on the strap. Anyone that has one want to share your opinion on that? Here are a few of my favorites from Etsy...

After a trip to Hobby Lobby last night, my creative juices are flowing. I needed to pick-up some paper for a few wedding invitation clients and I wanted to look at fabric. I found this classic apple green fabric, and am hoping to use it as a backdrop for a future photo shoot!

I also fell in love with this damask paper.

I have no idea what I'll be using it for, but I just had to have it. A trip to Hobby Lobby or Michael's is never complete without some new I was glad to find some I can use on invites. Now off to see if I can be productive!


  1. Oh, poor Barrett. I hope he gets better soon!

    I'm feeling down in the dumps about my point and shoot camera too. What we have now is perfectly fine, but I so want a SLR. I had planned on purchasing one next month but after a huge purchase yesterday (a professional pazzles die-cut machine - a step up from my inspiration pazzles), I'm not going to have money for a new camera anytime soon. :) Oh well.

    I so love that green and white fabric - and of course the damask goes without saying. And you are so right about the ribbon - Roger thinks I'm crazy when I by more since I already have a mini dresser full. :)

  2. I love the green fabric! And that paper is great too. I am always picking up scrapbook paper that I have no use for but I love the colors or design so much that I have to have it.

    I have to say that I love that the fabric is stitched right onto my camera strap. I looked at both and decided that it would be less bulky that way. I haven't seen the strap covers in person so I can't really say much about them. I love my strap from Shabby Straps. When I got mine I had narrowed it down to the one I got and the one you have pictured :)

  3. Ohh...poor Barrett. Hope he gets to feeling better soon!
    Love all the goodies you got at Hobby Lobby...I just love that place.
    Love the magnets you've put together for my friend! It looks great!

  4. Barrett is adorable! I hope he gets to feeling better soon. Your blog is adorable and I will check back often! Have a good week!

  5. So how did I miss this post? I was on the computer most of the day yesterday working and for some reason I NEVER saw it until tonight! Hmm...

    Barrett looks like he would rather be ANYWHERE but in that chair! How funny is he!!

    Thanks for the sweet words! I am glad that you are jumping into the world of SLR's!! You will NEVER EVER regret it!! EVER!! I have no clue on the straps! I got one for Christmas but I have yet to put it on! It is the kind that slides over my camera strap though.

    Love that fabric!! It will be classic for a backdrop and can be used for a boy OR a girl!! FUN!

    I'll try to get you written back tomorrow!!

    Love ya!

  6. Beautiful Straps. I also love the look of your site... great color choices.
