Christmas Cards!

 My newest listing on Etsy- a set of 5 Christmas cards.

My dad and my brothers modeled for this card. I did an original drawing and then had it printed onto notecards.

Christmas is coming!

Last Wedding of the Year

My friends Mandie and Jacob got married last week! I feel like this year has been a whirlwind of weddings (starting with mine)! This was the 5th and final wedding of the year for me. This wedding was special because- 1. Mandie was in my wedding this past April
2. She was married at the same place I was (it was like a flashback for me).

I wasn't the official photographer for this wedding, but I did get a few good shots :)

It was a beautiful wedding :)

Everyone loves a good deal, right?

So.. I've recently (as in 2 days ago) joined the many who are doing the "couponing" thing. I am really enjoying this! Here are the deals I've gotten so far-
My first deal- a FREE lip gloss from Sephora (only the ones in JCPenney) ~

 Go here to print your own coupon!

Today, I found some great deals! My husband LOVES sweet tea.. I found this coupon for $1.00 off Gold Peak Tea-

If your Target has Gold Peak Tea single serve bottles for $1.02, you can print a $1/1 single serve Gold Peak Tea printable coupon on the Gold Peak Facebook Page to get them for just $0.02 each after coupon.

* My local Target did not carry Gold Peak Tea, so I went to my local Woodman's.. It was on sale for 99 cents, so technically I got it for free (but I ended up having to pay tax which was 8 cents for both bottles).

I also went to Kohl's today and got some gifts for Christmas as well as a winter coat for my husband. I spent $160 (with a 30 % off coupon) and I got $30 in Kohls cash back!

Let me know if you use these coupons!! Enjoy!

* Just got another deal from Target.. A pair of jeans and a sweater for $13.70!! Go here to get this deal..

Fall In Love

The other day, my husband and I headed to a local park to have some photos taken. My mother was gracious enough to take the pictures for us. Here are a few of my favorites ~

The park was in full array of Fall colors..

This place is my very favorite for taking photos..

The scenery was just beautiful..

These are my favorite blue - eyes..

Thought you would all enjoy a taste of Autumn :)

Christmas Cards!

My newest listing- a set of 5 Christmas cards.

For the past few years, I have drawn/designed our family's Christmas card. These are leftover from the ones we had printed. I was the model for this particular card. My mom would typically envision the design and I would then draw it out, usually using a family member for the model.

what do you think?
