Valentines Card Drive

Just sharing a quick card with you today. Every January my kids and I participate in a Valentines Card Drive to benefit children in the hospital. I am so very blessed to have healthy kids and I love the idea of giving someone else's kid a smile. Our goal this year is to make 100 cards. We are over halfway there, so hopefully we can reach our goal.

I usually design the cards and the kids are my worker bees. They help assemble, do some coloring and then sign the insides. This is something we look forward to every year at this time. Its also a really great way to avoid the normal post holiday blues. We have to keep the design simple, and without any choking hazards on them. This card below is just one of the designs we have made so far.

If you are interested in contributing some cards you can go HERE to read details. All cards have to be received by January 31st.

Best from 2013

I can't believe 2013 is really over! It seems like someone hit the fast forward at places. I keep seeing many other blogs posting their top photos from the year and I thought this would be a fun one to do. Last year was a very dead year for my photography. I think everyone goes through slow times, mine just lasted most of the year. I had lots of other personal projects and for a first time in a long time my photography took a back burner.

That being said when I went back and reviewed my pictures for the year this one particular jumped out at me. This is a photo of my niece playing in the pool. She has such spunk and energy and I love that I was able to capture some of it in this picture!
