This beautiful couple contacted me about wanting some pics for their "night on the town".  You mean I get to play paparazzi to people having fun?  Oh yes indeed!!!  These two were a blast, so unafraid to step out of the box and present their ideas to me.   And Kandice is a tiny little doll!  :)  Thank you so much for letting me be part of your special evening.

A Stitch In Time http://proofs.1000beautifulthings.com/blog/2015/11/taking-back-time

I am currently participating in an online group called My Still Sunday, presented by Kim Klassen.  This weeks theme is Light & Time.  For me, it is about being still, being present, and noticing all of those little things.  I like to pride myself in taking time to notice the beauty in simple things, but honestly we sometimes get so caught up in life and what is going on that we forget to BE STILL.  So I decided to take part in the group as a reminder to myself to 1) be still, 2) focus on those little things in life, and 3) step outside of my box and shoot those little things.  This is Day 1 for me... Autumn Needlepoiont. I love this quote she posted: 

"Time is free, buy it's not priceless.  

You can't own it, but you can use it.

You can't keep it, but you can spend it.

Once you've lost it, you can never get it back. 

                            ~ Harvey MacKay

 

Remember to stop and smell the roses (or in this season the crisp autumn air).  Time passes too quickly. Make every moment a beautiful moment.

The New Little Man In My Life aka The Bean http://proofs.1000beautifulthings.com/blog/2015/11/the-new-little-man-in-my-life-aka-the-bean newbornnewborn

On October 10th, a new little man arrived in my life.  After many hours of waiting (and much pain for my poor sister), my darling nephew Finn arrived safe & sound.  I was so happy to spend the first 10 days with him in Indiana, holding him and cuddling with this sweet little critter.  Since finding out about my sisters pregnancy, I have referred to him as the Bean (human bean). :)  Now I suppose I should refer to him as Finn, but I like "the Bean". Besides, he is a little gassy.   :)

This beautiful woman, who I am proud to call my baby sister, is a Momma to be.  I cannot believe it. It seems like yesterday I was changing HER diapers, and now she will be taking care of a new baby herself.

Yin & Yang or The Adventures of Name That Tree Pod http://proofs.1000beautifulthings.com/blog/2015/3/yin-yang-or-the-adventures-of-name-that-tree-pod kentucky_coffee_tree_yellowkentucky_coffee_tree_yellow

kentucky_coffee_tree brownkentucky_coffee_tree brown

I found these massive seed pods on a tree here in the Oklahoma City area and had to grab a couple to see what they had inside. I had never seen such massive shells. These measure about 4" long by 2" wide.  And in most tree "pods" I have found here in Oklahoma, I have found a soft shell.  These however have a hard outer shell. Very tough exterior.  Of course once I got home I had to find out what I had retrieved. Let's just say I am glad I did not get the munchies on the way home and decide to eat my new found pods.  They are actually from a Kentucky Coffee Tree and are actually quite poisonous. The pulp and pod is rumored to be edible if cooked or preserved, thought to resemble tamarind.  But in its raw form it is poisonous.  I would have to do more research before I would consider attempting to enjoy this "delicacy". I am still curious to open the pods up and take a look at the seeds, but I think I will put on some gloves for that one.  In the meantime, enjoy the images (I could not decide which I preferred so please feel free to leave comments). I have another I may post soon.

October Exploration http://proofs.1000beautifulthings.com/blog/2014/10/october-exploration IMG_3503IMG_3503 I cannot promise 365 pictures in a year, but I have decided I need to carry my camera with me more and explore the world around me.  I am always thinking to myself, "Oh that would make a great picture." as I am driving along.  But I forget about it and go on... So here I am, stopping to share some of the many beautiful things in my world.

2014 Plaza Festival, Oklahoma City http://proofs.1000beautifulthings.com/blog/2014/10/2014-plaza-festival WOW! What a day! I made it thru my first juried art showing.  The Plaza District here in Oklahoma City holds an awesome arts festival each year, including music, arts, fun for the kiddos, and more... So I was accepted by the juried art show and it turned out to be a fantastic day. I thought I would share pics of my booth.  

Hubby and I put the pegboard together and it worked out really well to hang all of my art.  I went with a vintage theme, using my old Samsonite suitcases and scraps of lace as part of my display.  

Thank you to all of the wonderful people who came and visited me and those who invested in my art.  It was a great day and I look forward to doing this again soon.  ♥

Sneak Peak at Little M 7 Months http://proofs.1000beautifulthings.com/blog/2014/8/sneak-peak-at-little-m-7-months IMG_3470IMG_3470

I cannot believe how quickly time has flown.  This little guy is already 7 MONTHS OLD!!!  Where does the time go?   He has such a great personality and is so much fun.  :)  He is signed up for the 1 year plan so I am getting the joy of taking his picture every single month of his first year. I cannot wait to see what the next 5 months holds.

SPECIALIZED ART PIECES http://proofs.1000beautifulthings.com/blog/2014/4/specialized-art-pieces youngunsyounguns

wee oneswee ones

I had been in a bit of an artistic rut recently.  I was taking pictures, but I wasn't feeling the art coming through.  Then I began studying and learning more about my artistic skills in the digital collage form. This has  allowed me to enter a new realm and I am looking forward to seeing what the future holds.  I will be offering custom  collage images for my customers from here on out.   Here is a peek.  I am loving these.  So much so that  I had to get standout samples for my own studio. :)  

If you are interested in having a special one of a kind art piece created for yourself, please feel free to contact me.

Getaway http://proofs.1000beautifulthings.com/blog/2014/3/getaway web1web1

I just thought I would share a couple of pics from our getaway last weekend.  We visited Eureka Springs and stayed in a cabin with the most amazing view.  In the distance was Beaver Lake and then beyond that were the Ozarks.  What an amazing way to spend your morning and evening just sitting on the deck seeing the beauty Mother Nature has to offer.  Oh and also, we renewed our vows.  :)  We did a very quiet little JP ceremony and jeans.  And this time I did it how I wanted to... barefoot.  Hehe.

Wanderlust ~ New England 2013 Oklahoma City Photographer http://proofs.1000beautifulthings.com/blog/2014/3/wanderlust-new-england-2013-oklahoma-city-photographer In my life I have moved over 25 times.  I lived in Texas, Nevada, California, Indiana, and now Oklahoma.  But I am forever drawn to the sea.  I often joke that I was a mermaid in my past life.  In the summer, I would live in the pool if I could.  Well, all year around if I could. But alas, I live in Oklahoma.  Where the winds blow across the prairies, and the tumbleweed fly by like some little ghost town in a movie. Okay, it's not quite that bad... at least not here in Oklahoma City. :)  But sometimes my gypsy blood boils and I long to roam free.  Last year, I had the great opportunity to travel with a dear friend to New England.  We traveled up to Maine just after the big storms had hit and the waves were high enough they were reaching the seaside beach homes along the way.  Here is just a glimpse of those wonderful memories from Maine. I will be heading up north again in April.  But first, I am headed on a road trip with the Mister.  I cannot wait.  I am sure there will be pictures for that too.  :)  NEW ENGLAND PRINTS AVAILABLE HERE
