shooting for competition

PPN spring conference!

I LOVE being on the board for PPN. It’s fun, rewarding, and empowering. We’ve all been working our patooties of for our upcoming Spring Conference… which is in KEARNEY this time! It certainly takes a team to plan this thing, but every time we photogs gather, it’s a hoot and a half. I’m really looking […]

headed South!

It’s me, a teething Violet, and our 85 year old Grandma Helen headed South for a week. Wish us luck on the flight there and back. We’ve got a million and one things going on at work to put on hold, going through a nap transition and then there’s the teeth that are ripping their […]

a little something

Are you a P.E.O.? If you’re asking yourself ‘What’s P.E.O.?’ then the answer is nope. But if you ARE a P.E.O. ….. Hi, sis! To the non-P.E.O.’s, I cannot tell you what the letters P.E.O. stands for. Or about anything we secretly do behind our locked doors. I can’t tell you about our crazy initiations […]

in good hair days and in bad…

…we LOVE you, Violet LaMarr! Our little Valentine. Violet was economically responsible this year. For her valentines, she cut hearts out of our kitchen calendar last year from Rifle Paper Co. Just too pretty to toss into the recycle bin. We also made strawberry cupcakes for her neighborhood buddies. And Ryan and I aren’t doing […]

winter week

since it snowed TWICE this week, I’ve gone a little cabin crazy. Wednesday I almost scrubbed the floor on my hands and knees just for entertainment. (I said almost) It’s not toooo bad yet. as long as Arrow gets the pieces of food, that buys us at least another 2 weeks before we need to […]

Mona - As much as I would like to own your file cabinet, I think it’s too deep for my space :( I hope it goes to a loving home soon

weird is a side effect of awesome

I’ve always loved slightly off art portraits. They can be so awesome in a gallery wall that make you stop and go ‘hmmmm….. YES!’ But not so odd that it makes you uncomfortable. Like, not Lady Gaga weird… just a little quirk that shows personality and fun. agreed? I still plan to do this with […]
