Hello Monday and hello dear reader of my blog! I think we all can agree (in good ol’ ND anyway), that Spring has offered us little to be thrilled about (weather-wise). Although, I’m sure there are those out there that are loving the snow in some places with their snowmobiles. Here, in the central and southern portion of the state though, it’s been dry as a bone (for the most part), but the cold has pretty much been a constant everywhere. I’m pretty much over this weather. At this point, I bet the squirrels are even starting to wonder where Spring is.
This entire month has gone so fast. It’s been filled with a lot of appointments on the home front, wrestling practice/tournaments for my boy, a lot of miles on my trusty (and kinda ugly) ol’ van, and design work with it being Graduation time soon for my awesome 2013 seniors. Speaking of seniors, this past week I got some goodies delivered! I posted this image on Instagram and my Facebook page, but just in case you’re not connected on social media in those ways, I thought I would share in this week’s post. It really doesn’t matter what your image is printed on (in regards to product), I think, just as long as it is in print and in a way you want to enjoy it each and every day. I wanted to offer some unique items though and I think these are just the ticket! Best part….some of these items are bonus level items, which, are essentially, complimentary gifts. Cool, huh? The 2013 seniors featured on these products are Kayla, Brock, and Emme. Brock’s session will be posted on the blog tomorrow, so check back for that. I also have my niece’s blog post coming up too, as well as another family session! Class of 2014 – I love creating custom pieces and in design, anything is possible. It’s not too early to book your session!
This week brings a session, an ordering session, yet another appointment, and Easter weekend. We’ll be enjoying Easter at home this year. Yesterday, I took the girls to an Easter Carnival at the Zeeland Community Center and they got quite the loot! It’s a great time for the kids to find eggs (although this year it was indoors because it was snowing and chilly out) and play some games for prizes. It’s held every year, so next year I’ll try to make an announcement for it beforehand on my Facebook page. The kids really enjoy it!
Speaking about Easter, which is suppose to be a Spring-like occasion, there is an event coming up I would like to mention. On Saturday, April 13th, myself and fourteen other vendors will be sharing our small businesses, and it would be a great opportunity to snatch up some Mother’s Day/Graduation gifts, or just see what women in the area have to offer.
For Mother’s Day/Graduation ideas, I offer photo jewelry/gifts (among other neat products) for those who already had a session or gift certificates for my photography services for future sessions. Through April 19th, all pieces will be 10% off! Stop my booth at the vendor fair to purchase a gift certificate for jewelry or for a session for MOM! I have a couple different session options, so please stop by my booth for details! If you have a camera and would like a few pointers on how to use it, bring it to the vendor fair and stop by my booth for some tips using YOUR camera too!
Also, in reference to Easter, if you haven’t been watching “The Bible” on the History Channel Sunday nights, it’s really a very well, put together program. I have been so impressed by it. We’ve been recording it each week (it will conclude this coming Sunday) and watching it with the kids. They’ve really been enjoying it and I just think it’s filled with valuable lessons and reminders for adults and children alike. It’s really had an impact on me too, in many ways. Maybe I’ll share more of that in a later post. Easter is so much more than bunnies, Easter egg hunts, and candy though. For me, growing up, it meant I also got a dress. It was a tradition that each Easter I got my “Easter dress.” I just really highly recommend watching it. There is usually a replay of the previous episode prior to the new one.
And finally, for today’s post (which, I think I started this post about 9:30 this morning – no joke)….just want to send hugs, kisses, and birthday wishes to my sweet niece, Chanelle! My youngest would say “my Chanelle,” but I’ll say – our Chanelle turns 1 today! How fast that first year goes! Happy Birthday, sweet pea!
Until next week, hopefully I don’t see you on the crazy train! Spring is sure coming in like a lion (but in a lot of good ways)!
