Neglected

My poor neglected blog. December is crazy busy for some reason. Probably because I let it get busy. Not really with things to do, but I like making some of the gifts we give and between photography orders and subbing I'm behind on my gift making and blogging. But I'll get it done. I always do. I seem to work better when I'm on a deadline.

But for now I'll catch up with my photos of the day so my sister will stop calling me a slacker. Must be a slow week at work.

Monday, November 30, 2009 – Taking photos all day for my "Day in the Life" layout for the Ali Edwards workshop I'm taking at Big Picture Scrapbooking. Seeing squirt practicing always makes me smile.

Thursday, December 10, 2009 – Starting a week of self portraits or photos of me to use on the layout for Ali Edwards' Big Picture Scrapbooking workshop. I'll probably be sick of seeing photos of me by the time the week is up.

Wednesday, December 16, 2009 – Me and sweet L. She's growing so fast. She really does love me so I'm not sure what that sour look on her face was all about. Last photo of me for my scrapbook page. Thank goodness. Some photos of me I like, but when kiddo is the only one who can help and the vantage point is looking up at me it's not quite as flattering.

Friday, December 18, 2009 – Christmas is officially here. My friend M brought me my yearly plate of peanut butter chocolate balls. My favorite treat of the season. I'm having to give myself a time out from them as I type before I eat them all and have none left for the weekend.
