shine and sparkle - a mini photo shoot!

my amazingly supportive husband took a few new pictures for me yesterday.  i wanted a few festive shots for the holidays to use for my new blog makeover (coming tomorrow!) and a few other projects that i have coming up.  i thought i would share a few of my favorites...

i'm usually not a fan of indoor photos, but it was so cold outside and i thought the hand painted birch trees i have been working on (more on that soon!) would be a great background with a strand of lights.  i think i'm lucky to have such an understanding mister...he admires all of my crazy ideas :) XO


  1. christmas lights are so much fun and its amazing what they can do to a photo!
