Photographing The Bug

I'm such a lucky auntie.  My niece is adorable.  And she sleeps.  A lot.

Mims is such a party girl that even when she was a baby she couldn't go to sleep if there was anyone else in the house.  She wanted to stay up and entertain them.  It was sweet and charming, but it made photographing her very difficult because she didn't want to be put down for even a moment.  

So when my sister brought Katie-bug over yesterday wearing the cutest angel onesie, I knew I wanted to shoot some pictures for the blog... And for myself, because The Bug is a cutie-pie.

I used my Think Pink Lapgan as the background.  I was lucky, she smiled in her sleep just as I snapped the picture.  I'm not going to say she smiled because she was sleeping on such a beautiful and fun blanket, but I can't stop you from thinking it... LOL!!!

State of the Union: May 2013

Have you ever had one of those days that turned into one of those weeks, which then turned into several weeks?  Yeah, me too.  This is by far my favorite job, but it's not my only job, and my 'real world' job has kinda been absorbing all of my time lately.  Anyone who takes care of someone that can't take care of themselves will understand.

I don't have much free time, but I've gotten to do some more dying.  I even used my big-deal professional dyes, which splashed on my leg and gave me Smurf-Foot for a few days.  I even experimented with some cotton yarn and a tie-dye kit.  

I don't see things getting easier in the next couple of months, but I'll keep you updated.  I really appreciate the folks who have noticed questions in the comments, and answered them for me!  Triple Dynamo Points to you!!

I know I've got a post coming up on a really cool argyle cowl I made, but my photographer (Jake! Grrr...) botched them by taking a really beautiful set of photos of me, and managing to cut the cowl off in every single picture.  Seriously.

That's okay.  Now that I'm looking at it, I'm not crazy about the bright blue shirt with the aqua/brown cowl anyway.  I think it was for the best.

Okay, gotta run.  Kindergarten gets out in an hour, and I've got to finish the laundry and fix my grandma some lunch.  Love to you all!
