A Forest Frolic

My eye is all about photography today……..you know why?  I don’t want to brag, but………but I will.  I’m taking Karen Russell’s photography class and today is the first lesson.  I haven’t really read it yet, because I want to savor it, waiting for a moment when I don’t have a nerf bullets whizzing past my head every 5 seconds. 

I am visually attracted to this site. A Forest Frolic.  Love her photos, some of the angles, the vibrancy of colors.  It’s a new blog…….but I know she’s gonna be big.

She also has that bug to thrift………she found this cute little bird cage…….she wasn’t feeling the gold, so she did what every creative girl would do.  6a01156f85d24a970c0115709d127b970b-450wi

She painted it!  Isn’t that cute?

Here’s one of those photos I was talking about.  What a cutie.  Have I ever mentioned that my son has never had his face painted…….won’t do it.  He won’t even put fake tattoos on.  I hope he holds onto this  sacred body thing until at least age 24.  But it would be cute and offer a few photo ops for now.

She does it all.  She even does a bit of paper crafting.  Lots of ideas for great vintage tags…….she sells them in her Etsy shop.

Loving the crowns………

And these stars…….These may say Rock Star, but they say 4th of July to me.  Add a stick to these and have your own bouquet.6a01156f85d24a970c0115711ceffb970b-450wi

Did I say paper crafts?  Well don’t let this fool you………she used fabric on this card.  Love that.6a01156f85d24a970c0115711ce39c970b-450wi    

Summer is in full swing here………My son’s last day of school.  Even though I am just starting Karen’s class, I think  I got some pretty good shots of my son today coming off the bus. Check it out.

Also…..because I can’t keep a secret for long………I have a surprise for you all on Wednesday.  Yes, I do………
