Winter Photography

We got around 6 inches of snow on Christmas Eve which made for a lovely white Christmas! The temps have still been very low and very little has melted. This morning a fog rolled in and due to the cold, coated the trees with a beautiful frosty layer. Later in the day, the sun came out and I couldn't resist taking my son and my {{borrowed}} 135mm Nikkor lens out in my backyard for a few shots.

The Christ of Christmas

I really love the message of truth that these verses share. I hope you'll take the time to read it and take it to heart.

This Christmas, I pray that you'll remember why it was that God sent His only begotten Son into the world. Think about it, have you looked beyond the Babe in the manger and accepted the Christ of the cross as your personal Lord an…

Christmas Gift Card Holder

Yes, it's been way too long since I've posted anything on my blog! Life has a way of keeping one busy! With Christmas quickly approaching, I thought I'd share a card/gift card holder that I made last year for Christmas.

It's hard to tell in this photo, but the white strip of paper is embossed with snowflakes. The snowflakes and little saying on the scalloped circle are also embossed.

 The white paper slips off and the inside of the card contains a pocket for a gift card.

 It was something totally new for me, but lots of fun to design and play around with!
