30 Oct


I did it again. Went over a week without blogging. Bad Robyn! I’ve noticed that while I have more free time these days I have been spending a lot more of that time with my family and sewing. Blogging takes time and instead of sitting down at the computer we’ve been trying to do more family things. If I’m sporadic in my postings I’m sorry, but our days have been packed  jam full and with the holidays coming up they are getting even busier. I will try to blog at least a few times a week and schedule some time into my days to devote a little more time to the Nest. I have a lot to share tonight and I’m doing it while cooking dinner, not an easy task. So here we go!

A couple weeks ago now we had a little photo shoot with one of my hubby’s friends who is in Photography school right now. He had an assignment to do portraits and thought of us,  nice right? Just in time for sending out holiday cards! Here are a few of my favorites. *Disclaimer-I edited these photos myself…I’m still learning how to use the burn and dodge tools and how to make them blend in, so instead of sitting at the computer for hours playing with it lightening shadows and all that jazz, I used effects. I am just too impatient to wait to get the edited photos from my hubby’s friend and don’t have the time to fully edit them myself.


DSC_0059It is so hard to get pictures where we are ALL looking at the camera and smiling. We did get some great shots and I look forward to blowing some of these up and framing them for the house. We took a  lot more pictures but I just wanted to show my favorites. I seriously love some of these. Gosh, I sure am lucky.

Since tomorrow is Halloween I may not have a post together but I am working on a couple of posts that I will try to finish before the weekend. I  feel like I’ve sewn a ridiculous  amount of things, at least to me, and I still need to take some pictures of them to get them on the blog and Etsy shop. I should have the better part of tomorrow morning to get a jump on it since Caleb will be in school and it’ll just be me and Gavin. And now I must go so that I can be productive and sew more crayon rolls while everyone is at the gym. See ya soon!

      Thanks, they were a lot of fun to take! We told the boys to smile nice so that we could send pictures to everyone and that made them smile big and keep it together longer than normal. If you want any of them let us know and we will email them to you.
