He he he… oops, so I missed last weeks’ Monday post!  Well, I’m more than making up for it this week… life is busy.  I really thought that taking the year off from teaching would make me organized, and rejuvenated.  Boy, was that a complete miscalculation.  Phew!  I’ve come to realize that, if a person like me is not busy with one thing (or 10), they’ll simply find another (or 10 other…) “something(s)” to replace it with.  For me… it’s more like 2034 “somethings”… give or take.  :)   Not complaining… just wondering why the heck I continue to do this to myself. 

I am just getting some orders packaged and ready to be delivered… including some of my crocheted/knitted creations by the way ;) .  I’m finishing up some edits on recent sessions, still crocheting like a madwoman, starting renovations on our main floor bathroom finally, and trying to complete a few other projects in the works! 

Easter was great!  We celebrated a couple of days early since my husband had to work beginning Sunday, but it was wonderful nonetheless… and “stuffing” too by the way!  Wow, Mom makes the best food EVER :)   Here are a few collages of what we’ve been up to the past week or so…

Easter FUN!


And here are a few of the latest “projects” that I finished in time for delivery before Easter… awww!

Here’s another quick one I finished this morning, so I thought I’d share it with you as well… I just love it!  I’m hoping my daughter doesn’t claim it for another one of her “guys”… haha!

Well hello (and nearly goodbye) to yet another Monday!  Time is flying by as usual… what’s up with that?  YIKES.  I have been busy… doing a lot of things:

1.  Running-  have now done three 5Ks this week… and one had a decent incline by the way!

2.  Photos, editing, making templates and albums

3.  Visiting and playing “Wizard” with friends

4.  Traveling here and there- to my sister’s farm outside Warner, then to Maple Creek today

5.  Oh, and of course a little knitting and crocheting…  :)  

I haven’t shared many of the creations lately… so on that note, here are a few more of my latest faves!  Enjoy!

Six Months Already? {Medicine Hat Baby Photographer}

Posted on March 16, 2010

So hard to believe that six months has already passed since this beautiful little lady was born… remember these shots?  I also got her bump shots…  What a hunny… Mom sat her up on the couch by the window, and that was that.  She posed like a superstar, and would have continued to do so if I needed her to!  It was so fabulous :)   We got a few shots in with the proud big sister once again too… who I also photographed when SHE was only six months old!  So fun seeing the girls growing… thanks for letting me be part of it all.  Enjoy…

What a fun day we had at Auntie’s place today!!!  It was a spur of the moment roadtrip… aren’t those usually the most fun?!  We went out to see how the horses were doing, oh, and let’s not forget Tonto.  (Yep, he’s the donkey :) )  After checking out the hayloft (as we need to do EVERY time we go… my daughter loves being up there), we returned to Auntie’s cozy house to play some SpongeBob Lotto!  Guess who won…  haha!  We had yummy lunch and then Chinese supper from Warner (good good stuff… mmmm), followed up with a massage for moi!  (Gotta love having a Massage Therapist for a sister ;)

In the meantime, we got the little artist set up with a new Pixo creative center from Auntie too… and she whipped up a little dog in no time… the coolest!  Now that she’s sleeping soundly in bed, maybe I’ll sneak downstairs and whip one up for myself.  haha!  Thanks for the great day Auntie and Gramma!

Monday Monday…

Had to take Rosebud to the vet for a sleepover (aka “getting fixed”)… this fact did not go over well with our three year old.  Nevertheless, we had a call that everything went well and no allergic reaction to the shot this time around… phew!  We’ll pick her up bright and early in the morning!

While in Taber, we hit the local “Melmart” for a fresh stash of yarn…. yahoo!  Oh, just wait until you see what I’m planning…  he he he!

I ran for a HUGE 30mins today!!!  Exhausting, and I still didn’t quite hit the 5K mark… but I can feel it’ll happen soon!  Well, not tomorrow… but soon ;)

Here are some great shots of my daughter sledding with my Mom and Dad (aka Gramma Rose and Papa)… what cool grandparents hey?!  We had the best day with them… and although the hill isn’t a mountain, it sure made for at least 100 fun rides in the crisp air and warm sunshine… ahhh, making memories.  xoxoxoxo

Contest TIME!

Posted on March 6, 2010

Hey everyone… in the last Meyer Monday post, I let you know that a little contest would be coming soon.  Well, here it is, and it really couldn’t be easier!  I put together this sweet little newborn hat (which is very stretchy, so should fit a few different sizes no problem) to offer up in my first contest here on the site… cute cute cute!  It is made with a creamy white, very soft yarn and would be a perfect photo prop, baby gift, or doll hat ;)   All you need to do is leave a comment on one or more of my posts… simple as that.  I’ll be notified with every comment you make, so the more you make, the better your chances of winning :)   I will make a random draw and announce the winner next Friday, who I will then be in touch with to arrange transport of the new hat to their doorstep!  And hey, since you’re here anyways… why not subscribe to this page (by clicking on the little orange rss symbol just above here on the left), so that you’re notified when I add a new post?!  Good luck and have a great day!!!

P.S… the doll’s not included… ;)

Meyer Monday {9} Medicine Hat Newborn Photographer

Posted on March 2, 2010

1.  Phew… just barely still Monday… haha!  It’s been a long day, I’ll leave it at that.  But I made it… just squeaking in before midnight!  (OK, so by the time I actually post this, it’ll probably be Tuesday…  close enough.)  I’ve had some inquiries about my newest hobby, so thought I’d share just a couple more from this past week.  Trying to do some different things now, including this cute diaper cover being modeled by #358 of my daughter’s stuffed guy collection…  he he he!  Can’t wait to try it on a real, live newborn soon.  :)

2.  I’m very proud to say that I ran 4km yesterday… without stopping or getting sick!  Yay me!

3.  Super proud to be Canadian… having Olympic withdrawals already, sniff sniff.

Stay tuned for some new creations again soon… I can’t help myself.  :)   And check back later this week for a little contest coming up as well…  if you’ve got little ones at home, or are a photographer looking for something unique… you won’t want to miss this one ;)

So if you know me at all… you will already know that I have dabbled in this, that and the next thing when it comes to all things artsy/crafty.  I LOVE it!  I’ve learned cake decorating, jewelry making, scrapbooking (traditional and digital)… you name it, I’ve tried it!  My problem is, when I see something that someone else has created, I always think, Hey!  I could do that!  Which then turns into a full blown splurge at Michaels, and tons of crafted pieces later… haha!  I wouldn’t be ME if this wasn’t the case.

Well, it’s happened again.  I’m “hooked” on knitting.  Never thought I’d ever say those words… at least not until retirement that is.  ;)   My Mom has been making things here and there for my daughter for the last few years, and finally had the patience to deal with my whining while showing me how to knit.  Seriously… the first day was torture for all parties involved.  I was SO NOT going to be a knitter.  But, stubborn as I am, I stuck with it on my own once I got home and… VOILA!  I can hardly wait to start the next piece while I’m still working on the last one.  It’s so addictive!!!  Here are just a few of my projects from the last week!  Stay tuned for more to come…
