Interview, Giveaway, Newbies and Top Secret Stuff

Things are lifting and brightening around me. After weeks of off and on sickness and pure lack of motivation and inspiration, along with feelings of anti-social anxiety...I am feeling alive again.

I went out last night with James to the wine bar for a friend's birthday. Got to see my girl Renea. Got to chat, drink a glass of wine, and eat the most amazing homeade keylime pie in the world. Good times...

Now I am about to go see my bestie and chill for the evening with her, a long overdue date! Hope her little baby boy will be awake so I can snuggle him all up.

I wanted to give a huge shoutout and thanks to BEFORE THE BABY WAKES, for doing this interview and giveaway with me, go check it out below:


I finally got another photo done for my butterfly project!

{oh, and just as I knew, I cannot do a 365, I am already over a week behind, oh well}
Another old photo I re-edited. From the same series I posted the other day.

I thought Id share some more of the newbies in the shop, I have so many more to post, so Ill try to keep you updated with a few of my favorites!

And for anyone who knows the lovely Amber from Hoot-n-Annie, go check out her birthday wishes, made me all giddy inside!


In top secret news, something very exciting might be happening soon with Violet Bella, all I will say is Ruche.com. Oh my!



  1. ummm.... ruche?? that's so awesome!! I hope the news is what I think it is. Just remember all your loyal followers when you are big and famous! :)

    Will certainly be entering your giveaway and spreading the word.
    You should still give the project a go for the 365... I've missed a few days and still doing it just for fun.

    The new edits you've posted of your pictures are incredible. Ever thought of doing a tutorial for all of us mediocre photoshoppers? (do you use photoshop or something else?) I used to do a lot of photoediting, and am starting back up with it but forget a lot of the stuff I learned.

    Glad to hear you're feeling better!

  2. How exciting for you!! You are one talented lady and I am so thankful to finding your beautiful creations. I am doing a 365 day project as well, and have been a tad late on photos but I am still keeping at it... hopefully you will do... I just can't get enough of your photos. Have a very lovely weekend... wearing my special necklace tomorrow... thank you!! xo

  3. Just entered the giveaway... can I say that I am so excited about it!!! xo

  4. OMG Ruche and Violet Bella???!!!
    Laura don't leave us hanging!! share, share you must tell us!
    I'm jumping to all sorts of conclusions here!

    I'm going to check out your interview when I get a chance for sure:)

    I like that picture you re-edited:)


  5. Betsy and Olivia- yes! I am going to have two items on Ruche! I am still making them, so it may be a while, but I am so freakin excited!

    Thanks so much for entering the giveaway! Oh and Betsy, Ill have to think about how to put together a tuturial, I dont have much structure with photoshop, as I am self taught, but I can try. If you ever need tips just ask me!

    Caroline, I cant wait to see you in your necklace, I hope you take a photo! Thanks so much for all of your encouraging words!

    I will still try to do as many photos as possible, I just get upset at myself if I call it a 365 and I dont do it, so Ill just try to focus more on doing my photos more often!

    thanks sweet sweet girls!

  6. i love your photo editing SO MUCH!!! i need lessons:)
