2012 Calendars

2012 is almost here! I still can't believe that we are almost in 2012.  This past year has flown by!

Since 2012 is right around the corner, it is a perfect time to get a new Calendar!  Currently, my 2012 calendars are 25% off (not including bound, write-on, calendars).  This year, I have several calendar options to pick from.  I have two different flower calendars and brought back my shell calendar along with the Wine, Tea and Coffee Calendar!  So many choices that I don't even know which one is my favorite!  :)

Here are a few more of the different calendars.  You can find my full selection and sizes in my Calendar Section of my Etsy shop.

Went off to NC again

When I went to North Carolina in May, it was to see my grandmother who has colon cancer.  She had just been diagnosed in April of this year and the cancer had already spread.  About a week and a half ago, the day before Father's Day, she lost her battle with Cancer.   The day she passed, I took my kids and flew back to North Carolina for the funeral.

We spent a week and a half in NC and it was a bitter sweet visit.  Although my grandmothers passing was not a total surprise due to the cancer, it was still sad.  But, on the other hand, we had a wonderful time with the family we got to see.  My kids had so much fun with their cousins who they don't get to see all that often. I had a great time catching up with my own cousins and siblings.   My kids got to play in the lake every single day....they loved it!  Ahhh, that brought back so many memories!

One thing I love about my grandmothers house was her flowers.  She has some beautiful hydrangeas in her garden.  I added a new print to my shop of one of those hydrangeas.....this photograph is in honor of her and her memory!

Earlier this month, I added 12x18inch posters to my shop! They are printed on thick paper...like card stock.  I also had them printed on pearl poster paper which gives this amazing touch to the photographs and makes the image pop off the paper!

The Tiny Pearls Of Light poster was even featured in Etsy Finds e-mail this past Saturday!! Yay!!

I just love these posters!!  They are wonderful and affordable ways to add larger photographs to a home, college dorm roof or office!

I really want to add another poster or two, but would love suggestions!!  If you have any photographs in my shop that you would like to see as a 12x18 poster, let me know!!  In a few weeks, you just might see them in my shop!!

In mid May, my husband and I took the kids on a driving trip from here in Denver up to Jackson Hole Wyoming!   It was a fun and beautiful trip!  We only spent 2 days up in the North Western Wyoming area while the other 2 days were spent driving.   I already can't wait to go spend more time at Yellowstone...it was just beautiful!

Needless to say, there was still a lot of snow at the South Entrance of Yellowstone -- which is not too far from Jackson Hole.  Actually, the day we went to Yellowstone was the first day the south entrance was opened for the summer season!   As we drove in, I could see why.  Some of the snow along the side of the road was upwards of 15 feet deep!   But, as we got closer to Old Faithful and the Hot Springs area, the snow became less and less deep.

We spent a good part of our day at Old Faithful and walking around all the hot springs there.  They were so beautiful and just amazing to see!  

The kids loved watching Old Faithful...and so did my husband and I!  We waited for about an hour for it to go off and it was totally worth the wait!!

This is one of the smaller hot springs.  It was pretty cool to see them bubble and boil.  There were also a few smaller geysers mixed in amongst the hot springs that erupted as we were walking by. 

The hot springs had amazing colors with the different minerals within them and the water.  Its something that its best seen in person!  Some of the pools were this amazing blue color...like a teal or aqua color.  Just stunning!!  Then the run of from the hot spring could range from a dark green to yellow or orange to white.  There were so many beautiful colors in and around the hot springs!

We also got to see a lot of different wild life.  We saw a ton of Buffalo, a Bald Eagle (that had caught a fish) and a few Coyote!

We had such a great time!  We didn't get to see anywhere near as much of the park as we had wanted to see, but then again, we could only be there for one day!  Yellowstone is a really beautiful place....my photographs don't do it justice!!

North Carolina

In early May, I went back to Charlotte, North Carolina where a lot of my family live.  I did not grow up in North Carolina, but I used to spend a lot of my summers at my Grandparent's house on a lake outside the city.

That place holds so many amazing memories for me! I love going back there and seeing my family (my mom moved back there from VA many years ago).  My dream is to take my kids there and have them spend their summers there too.   We have yet to do this, but I would love to go for at least a week or two one summer!  I don't know what keeps holding us back?!

While I didn't get many photographs from my trip to NC this time, I did take a few of a beautiful sunset over the lake.  I used my new lens - the Lensbaby for it!  The Lensbaby is such a fun lens....I might have to do a post on just that!  :)

If you can tell in this photograph, the lensbaby is more of an artistic lens that gives the most amazing blur/bokah and only has a small area of the photograph in focus.  For this photo, the middle tree line is in focus while the the sun is in a bit of a blur!

Another of the sunset with the lensbaby: 

This one is not in my Etsy shop yet, but it will be at some point!

I love these photographs!  This is the lake I spent so much of my summers at.  I think spent the entire day swimming!  I was so much fun!  I am so jealous that my mom and grandma get to look out on this every day!  Just being there to visit family brings back so many amazing memories! 

Now, if I could only move there! :)   But, I still love it here in Colorado!!
