Pin it, do it!

Like many of you, I visit pinterest quite often. I'm either looking for recipes, DIY projects, or photo inspiration and I'm pretty hooked. But then there's a problem with it. I pin things ALL the time, and never actually DO many of the projects that I pin. So I've decided to change that! I want to start to start doing some of the DYI projects that I pin.  I'm going to blog it, so that way it'll hopefully help me be more consistent....and maybe it will even inspire you to start DOING some of the things you've PINNED!

So here we go. Pin it, do it!

This week, I got my inspiration here!

I have a ton of bottles that I've saved to decorate with. So I decided it was time to fix them up! =) 

So that's as far as I've gotten. Next, I'm off to the pain store to go get some more white paint...maybe even some yellow and blue =)

It's such a fun way to spice up some jars...and some shelves!

The Luthers

Ya know those people who cheer you on and encourage you to keep working on what you love? They ask questions and stay updated on the latest and really care to know how things are going. Well, Melanie and Ryan and some of those people. From day one when I took my little Nikon D40 over to their house to take pictures while i babysat, they oooh-ed and ahhh-ed at the pictures I took (bless them!) and made me feel so excited about what I was doing! 
They've asked me to do several sessions, and have their pictures all over the house. Seriously, it couldn't make a photographer happier.
To say I love hanging out and photographing this family is an understatement. They're just awesome =)

it's so nice to have a family who is willing to let you practice with them! my little nephews were willing and eager models today as i was "trying something new".... trying out different "styles" of photography. it didn't really go exactly how i had pictured, but i'm glad. it was candid, they had fun, and i love smiling as i look at the pictures. see if they don't make you crack a grin too....
