Angel Court Jewels: Before and After

Angel Court Jewels: Before and After

check this pool lounge room out.....my dear cousin and I were out for a walk and Ms. Courtney her biz partner wanted to run, so we set up a meeting spot.  I had just stated, hey I haven't showered yet and don't really want to impromptu meet ur friends or neighbors can we just walk to meet Courtney.  With family their are no rules..........U can say one thing and be happy it ends another way.  Her mother was very spontaneous when it came to meeting and greeting folks.  So I  know how genetics can effect someone like us. It wasn't five minutes into this work-out that my cousin I spied someone.  Sure enough it turned into a southern home tour of my dreams.  Poor Ms. Courtney was running around in circles at the country club trying to find us.  We were exploring one of the coolest place I had ever been and meeting one of the most delightful moms.  What a doll and she had mixed in her children's art with her own art collections and it was magic.  I wanted to stay and play........as we left she told us of this before and after project.  We walked out and my mouth was hanging open.  As my cousin laughed, I said I thought we weren't doing that and where in the world is Ms Courtney.  Courtney forgave us when we took her back for the before and after!

My bow frames

I love this line a carry in my studio, beautiful in any room of ur home.  She was a portrait artist who closed her studio and started doing frames full-time.  Her husband began making these for her clients and then they took them to Atlanta Gift Mkt and BOOM!  They were solely in the frame biz and U can see why.  I sell lots of the monogramed ones for gifts.  Stillshot carries her full-line.  I will leave for MKT on tuesday if u need any personal colors or monograms for gifts....just e-mail or call me.

father's day quote

“Fathers, like mothers, are not born. Men grow into fathers – and fathering is a very important stage in their development.” — David M. Gottesman

Anything you build on a large scale or intense passion invites chaos.

My mantra with birds

sleeping babies

Love this one I captured of a true sweet dream....I love the new babies to be awake during their 1st session in the baby club.  My favorite is when they fall asleep during the shoot, even better have a smiling dream.

This magazine is an awesome inspiration to me!  Love this desk!  I want to make it!  This is what it says....

Our Greatest Fear —Marianne Williamson

it is our light not our darkness that most frightens us

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

—Marianne Williamson

oil spill or sitting by the green algae pool?

It was a hard decision to cancel the family vacation.....So Dad said, we'll open the pool!  Which is Yuckier?  It's a toss up.  I'm sad about our favorite beach.  How many people have had to cancel?  Will it ever be the same?
