Tiny Miracle

It's been a while since I have shared some of my creative works with you. Here is a card that I made a few months ago when my little (and only) niece was born. It was the first time that I used a border punch on the edge of the card like this and I must admit, it was a little tricky to get the back and front lined up just right.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a terrific Tuesday!!

Bald Eagle Appreciation Day

Among the many unusual holidays out there, a not-so-weird one is Bald Eagle Appreciation Day. Today happens to be one of several days recognized with this "holiday".

Nearly every time we cross the Mississippi from Missouri into Illinois, we see several eagles standing on the ice. It's not uncommon for us to see up to six or more at a time.

Love that Face!

Through a Child's Lens: 1

I love photography! I always have. My father loved photography as well and passed the love for it down to me at a young age. I've done the same with my son. He got his first {{REAL}} camera from his Nana for Christmas two years ago when he was only a little over 3 years old. It isn't one of those bulky brightly colored cameras made especially for kids, but rather a sleek little 10mp Polaroid. Before you jump to conclusions that giving a 3 yr. old a camera is irresponsible, let me assure you that he was closely monitored until he proved he knew what he was doing. Now, two years later, he has nearly wore the thing out and taken literally hundreds of photos and  video. I'm afraid the little camera will give out soon and he will be needing a new one.

Over the past couple years of looking through his photos, I've been humored more than once at the unusual perspective of his photos. They're all taken from about 3 feet off the ground and of silly little things I could ea…
