Lola scored big at a yard sale when she found several dance costumes in Charlotte's size for $1 each!
Thank you, Lola!
So expressive... Charlotte will often close her eyes while dancing. It cracks me up!
OK - I am not a dancer, and I know I am a proud mama, but that looks like perfect form, no?
My sister-in-law, Sarah, reminded me that it was strawberry season and so Charlotte and I went picking!
Sarah is a fabulous writer for OurValleyEvents.com - her post about strawberries gave me such an intense craving I had to get some for myself! Sarah also has a wonderful local food blog (check it out here).
We went with our friends Leslie, Gabrielle, and Eva.
WANTED: Strawberry Smugglers!
(I especially love this picture of Charlotte and Eva - please notice Charlotte doesn't have a SINGLE berry in her bucket. Every single berry she picked went straight to her mouth! Though, who could resist that sweet juiciness?)
We picked 3 gallon pails!
I can't get over how big my little baby has gotten. She looks like such a big girl now!
These were the BEST strawberries I have ever had. Thank you Brown Farms!
I got the urge to create so I decided to work on some projects that would spruce up our office.
My first project was these cut out silhouettes of our family.
I have received requests to make these for friends - and if you are wondering, I am taking orders!
Here is some info for ordering the family silhouettes:
- For one silhouette that fits in an 11''x14'' frame the cost is $50 (this includes shipping costs but NO frame - I think it is best to have people select their own).
- I would need an email with the files of the images you are wanting to create into a silhouette. Profiles work best. For girls, I have found that it works best to have long hair pulled hair back into a ponytail or bun.
- I then use that image to create a customized cut out from black card stock and then I adhere it to white poster board. These are acid free and won't yellow or fade with time. I like the black on white as shown here, however I can work with some other colors of your choosing.
- If you decide to do your whole family I would be willing to offer a discount for a larger order.
If you are interested in having me make something similar for you, please post a comment and I will get back to you. :)
These are some of the photos from our photo-shoot for the project.
Charlotte looks like such a big girl with her ponytail!
