At the beginning of the year I decided to play along with Paint the Moon's 52 week challenge. Sadly, I didn't last long. But the fabulous Annie Manning did choose a couple of my pieces for the "photos of the week". Here are my debuts.
Week Five - Delicate: I had these flowers sitting out on my front porch all winter long. I was quite surprised to see that a couple little yellow flowers still exsisted.
Week Seven - Handmade: Again the theme came quite easy to me. I grew up in a home where the only gifts that were, and still are, given by my mother were homemade. She knows her way around a sewing machine and was nice enough to let me mess around on it through high school. I am lucky to have her creative, yet frugal side, as you will never catch me purchasing something I can make myself. What's handmade in this photo? The banner and the booties.
Week Fourteen - Chaos: Anyone who spends more than ten minutes with me and my three boys knows that my life is nothing but pure chaos.

Along with being picked for a couple photos of the week, I was also recognized by The Pioneer Woman for a photo I submitted for the "Brothers Photo Assignment". Although, I didn't even make it close to being a finalist, it is nice to have your photo picked out of such a large amount AND to have the wonderful Ree Drummond think your boys are beautiful. Of course, I already knew that though!
This photo was taken at the end of March and it was COLD!!! The lake in the background is beautiful Lake Geneva, where we are from.
