then and now

i've been wanting to get an updated family picture for a couple of weeks now....and we just can't seem to find the time to get one taken.  well as i was sitting in church today, i was determined we were going to do it this afternoon.

i set up the camera in the back yard and hauled in both kids (the big one and the little one), which took some time because they both wanted to do their own thing. :)

i tried to get one in the same pose we had just one year before, and while it isn't exactly the is close and i'm happy with it!

jewelry time has been a long time since i've been on here. i started school last wednesday! i have some awesome and crazy students this year! they are great!

here is our class website...

this past saturday, i had the opportunity to go to a vendor fair and sell some of the jewelry i make.  it was a great experience and i did pretty well.

i also had a lady approach me about maybe putting some of my jewelry in her store. i am pretty excited to see how it will do.

here are a couple of the pieces that i have left over from the fair.  i am working on putting them all on etsy just takes a while...ok not really. it takes FOREVER!

here is my etsy site...

i put some up last night and then got tired. hopefully i can get more up this evening after the monster goes to bed.
speaking of the monster...

check out this video i took of him earlier. i can't get him from climbing on things.  i am soooo surprised he hasn't had a broken bone yet.

but i guess that is a boy for ya!

have a great week!
