5 Things TuesdayDecember 6, 2011
It’s December! And here are 5 things going on in my life right now …
1 PINNED ON A PHOTO INSPIRATION BOARD - I spent the other night creating a separate board on my Pinterest for photo inspiration. It really got my right brain thinking about all sorts of fun things to do for photo shoots. Plus, it’s a great resource to give to clients for ideas.
I’ve mainly done weddings but I think I want to venture out into family or couples photography. Fo realz.
2 I GAVE MY SITE A FACELIFT - let me know what you think. It’s a little bit more streamlined and mature. And I’m hoping to consolidate it with my store and photography sites that way they all look the same & hopefully all link together under the same URL. It’s definitely a work in progress but I’m liking what I’m seeing.
Can any of you help me out with the capital “A” in the “Ask me anything” above and the bullets? I can’t seem to fix those two things in the coding.
3 BESTIE DAY - it is the second annual (ZooeyD-created) BESTIE DAY! And I only found out about it last week so I haven’t had the chance to send them a treat or find a picture of a baby panda. But I’m so not on board with that American Girl store - they’re creepy.
Anyways. Here is a pic of me & my besties. Chris & Leggars. Expect something great in the mail!
4 IT’S ADVENT - it’s officially December and there’s newly chocolate-filled Advent Calendar sitting on the kitchen counter. I filled it out late, but at least now there’s 5 days worth of candy goodness!
Besides the chocolates, I’m trying to be more mindful about observing Advent. Again, I’m about a week late on that too. But I’d like to bring the whole reason for Christmas into the actual holiday celebration … I guess I have to do some planning. Making some traditions right here.
5 SPEAKING OF CHRISTMAS, I’M BRAINSTORMING COOKIES FOR PACKAGES - a couple years ago I had a few text messages from people who wanted cookies so I sent it to them as my version of Christmas Cards. And I sent a few extra to other close friends. 7 packages filled with homemade cookie treats.
And well, I want to do that again this year. I’m including Snowflake Pizzelles, Snowball cookies (no nuts for the Ellis’ package), and I still need a third one for good measure. I’m thinking this gingerbread man might be a good option :)
Who else wants a cookie box? Leave a comment below … I can probably pull something off.
