Waaaay Toooooo LOoooooNg

Its been a long time since I have blogged, way too long.

Should I go sweet and just hi, or talk about something worth while, post pictures...I don't know, but I do know I am going to try and keep this up.

Somewhere inside of me there is this creative button, that I just can never seem to turn off. I drive down the road, and see something and just immediately begin thinking how I could crop, edit, change, accessories, or change it all together. Then my brain just goes into full throttle speed...

I have been doing what I like to call fine tuning all around the house. One of things I recently did was my mother in law had given me a picture of Shawn's great grandmothers house. It was a photo copy of the canvas. I have not seen the original picture so I am not sure what it looks like. I really liked the picture and hung it under wording that said, Home is where your story begins...

Old camera actually made the photo look doesent look this bright and clear, its got a more sepia tone

I loved it there, but I wanted it bigger. I took it to my local photo people, not walmart or Walgreen's, a real developer...and asked them to help just spruce it up a bit, and I wanted to enlarge it. I found a really cool clearance cheep frame at Hobby Lobby!!!

When I came back, much to my amazement, the photo was incredible. I could not believe how much it had changed! I sent a copy of it to my father in law to see what he thought about and was it close to the original. I really love pictures...and think it is way to cool what they can do know with photos.

The New Updated look

The new Wall

While I was planning on this being bible story hour, as I was writing this (see, there goes my brain again) I was reminded in my spirit how we all start off dull and lifeless, but when we become Doers of what the word says, its just like this picture, with a click of a button we are transformed into perfection in the eyes of God....

Happy Monday everyone... family is coming this week, really excited to see my two Broadway babies, and my Mom and Aunt...its going to be a fun weekend around here!
