When It's Winter Outside, Bring Spring Inside

Some tulips we brought to a friend's house for lunch... for some reason I think tulips were made to be put in square vases. Tulips are such cheery flowers, and we usually get the urge to buy them when spring is right around the corner.

And these carnations were given to us by a friend. Carnations are a somewhat looked-down-upon flower, perhaps because they're cheap, but personally I find them very pretty, particularly several of the light pink ones bunched together.

Go get yourself some "indoor spring"... even if it's a little $5 bunch of tulips from Walmart. :-)

C.A.P.T.U.R.E. Photography Workshop!

Shining Light Photography has just released details about their brand new photography workshop, C.A.P.T.U.R.E.!

This is a photography workshop hosted by two Christian young women, Allison and Laura! (Click on their names to visit their personal photography blogs!). I don't know about you, but I think it's about time there were some more Christian based photography workshops and classes out there. Photography is an art form, and there are plenty of people out there who misuse it and make what shouldn't be art, into "art." It's wonderful to know that there is a wholesome, Christ-centered workshop for Christian photographers!

The first C.A.P.T.U.R.E. workshop will be hosted in Centerville, Tennessee. It's a week-long course, during which you will receive "hands-on instruction and professional critiques, go on photo-outings, compete in photographic competitions, learn to view God's world with new eyes, lots of laughter (plus  a few surprises!) and last but not least whole-hearted encouragement from your fellow classmates." And the pricing has great options for multiple family members who want to attend!

C.A.P.T.U.R.E. Centerville takes place June 6-10, 2011 (that's Monday through Friday) and taking place at Cold Creek Farm. If you can't make it in June, never fear! They're planning on having C.A.P.T.U.R.E. San Antonio in September!

Be sure to hop over to the C.A.P.T.U.R.E. website, scope out all the details and register to save your place!

Retro Red Photo Shoot

Ok, so maybe it's not really retro, but with the lipstick it sure is retro-inspired. :-) Here are some of the other pictures from the photo shoot we did for i heart faces (too bad you can only choose one photo!)
As you can see, we had a lot of fun with this. :-)

Bright and cheery!

This looks like a vintage modeling pose to me! :-)

This one is similar to the one we ended up picking.

 This was my personal favorite... I liked how smooth it came out and her expression.

And of course, the one that I ended up entering in the contest. One reason we chose this one is because it doesn't have the snowy background conflicting with her cheery, short-sleeved outfit.

Have a personal favorite?

I Heart Faces - Red

This week's i heart faces theme is "Red." My sister dolled herself up in red yesterday and we did a photo shoot. The pictures came out really cute and I had such a time of it trying to pick which photo to use. I eventually just had to choose one. But I loved all of them, so come back tomorrow and I'll post the rest of the pictures!

The Blizzard of 2011

I meant to post some of these pictures earlier, so posting them now seems a little belated - it's currently 40ºF outside and the snow is melting rapidly. Still, I thought I'd post a couple of photos from the big blizzard we had. The drifts were up to 4 feet in places!

The branches weighed down by all the snow!

My sis lounging in the track made by the snowblower in the driveway.

And my daddy operating said snowblower. It took him 3 hours to clear the drive!

Lotsa snow!

My ever obliging model!

This is hardly a good example of the amount of snow we got, but I thought it was pretty. :-)

I Heart Faces - Hearts

This week's theme at i heart faces is "Hearts." I had a few other ideas, but I was pretty sure someone else would probably do the same thing. :-) Someone may do this too, but it's little more unique! The pictures in the locket are my grandparents... they've been married for 50+ years now!
I did some vintagey editing on this to hopefully evoke a feeling of nostalgia... :-)

Cheesecake Marble Brownies

My sister made these yesterday. And what's more, she even made up the recipe herself (sort of - she started with a base recipe and then changed nearly every ingredient in it). This also means I cannot share the recipe with you, because she didn't measure. :-) But trust me, they were quite delicious.
