I started a photography page…

So I have taken the plunge, of sorts, and started a photography website. Not that I think my skills are anywhere close to being good enough, but I take modeling photos of my kids for Boutiques to use on their websites, etc. People are always asking me who their photographer is and for links to their page. So I thought this would help me look more professional. I own Simply Posh Models on Facebook, .

I just purchased the book “Understanding Exposure 3rd Edition/Revised and Updated by Bryan Peterson”. It came highly recommended by some photographers that I admire. I am also hoping to take some classes in the near future.


The link to my photography blog is Be sure to check it out if you get a chance or if you have any interest and let me know what you think.

Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year! I have been spending a lot of time with family and I have been working on some new jewelry items. The twins have also been taking turns being sick over their Christmas break. It never fails, but at least they were well for Christmas. We went to my parents home in WV for a couple days before Christmas and we got to see snow. Also got to spend a lot of time with my Grand Mother and my sister, so that was wonderful. Love going home to my parents house. There is no cell phone service and you can completely escape if you want to. They live near the Green Bank NRAO (National Radio Astronomy Observatory), so it is a federal quite zone. Very interesting place, you may want to check it out. They give guided tours, very interesting.

I am still obsessed with making  the nest and pea pod necklaces! Don’t know what has gotten into me. I guess it is just a nice break from making bows all the time.

I have been working on updating our house. We bought a house that was built in the 60’s and there have been very little updating. This past weekend we applied new 2″ blinds and a custom made (by me) valance. I will take pictures and post them. So much fun! Just ordered fabric to doing the kitchen and dining area. I will take step by step pics so you can see how easy it it.

Also, if you are on Pintrest, follow me here That is another obsession! So many great ideas on there. Would love to see what interests you as well.

Told you I liked to make new things..

I am forever venturing out to try new things. I just love the nest necklaces and earrings so I decided to try my hand at it. I think I am hooked! They are so much fun to make. I went and bought more beads and wire this evening. So be on the lookout for more items to come.

Bangs head on wall

How are you supposed to get any work done when your children are bouncing off the walls and yelling at each other? With 5-year-old twins and a 14-year-old daughter there is never a boring moment in this house. I end up separating the twins and they end up right back together anyway. There are just some days that bedtime does not come soon enough. Being a stay at home Mom with two businesses and a fiance that is in real estate there is never enough time in the day. I usually end up on my computer working late into the night, usually not in bed before midnight, just to get back up early to start all over again. I need to learn better time management skills. I tend to stretch myself way to thin, always venturing out to try new things, to make new items and to try to stay ahead of the trends. I truly need to focus my attention on a few items and go from there. But I love creating and coming up with new things, lol. Oh well, it is what it is. I guess I wouldn’t have it any other way.
