5 fun things friday

5 Fun Things Friday

1. Photography (like scrapbooking) can be quite trendy. I found THIS article on the subject to be insightful.  As with anything, balance is key.

2. Postagram Postcards. You can use this free iPhone app to send postcards for only $.99 to anywhere in the world.

You can select an image from your iPhone photo album, Instagram, Facebook, or take a shot with the app. What a TERRIFIC way to share photos from your next vacation!

3. This rainy day session makes me want to collect umbrellas for a future session of my own. What a wonderful idea!

4. These beautifully handcrafted chocolate eggs.

5. I found a new handbag shop that I absolutely adore.

Happy Friday!!!

{miss j turns 2} milestone mini session

Nothing quite sums up two years old like the perfect belly button shot.

belly button

You might remember Miss J from our session last year. It was so much fun to see how much she’s grown AND all of the things that go with it.   For instance, she’s now into tutus and purses and chocolate.

And she still has that gorgeous head of curls!


And a shy [yet spunky] little personality to go with them.

I had lots of fun with the new backdrops as well.


Especially, the chalkboard wall idea.

Which turned out exactly how I’d pictured it in my head! (Love it when that happens.)

Happy Birthday, Miss J!!!

remember, there’s no faithbooking crop this month…

I meant to get this message out earlier today but every second was devoted to this:


It seems Grandma was one popular lady. My mom and I spent the day with my grandpa yesterday, he’d already opened and read all of the cards. (He said it nearly knocked him out and I believe it!) I volunteered to help with the thank you notes, thus the piles pictured above.

I just wanted to hop on and let you know that 5 Fun Things Friday will return later this week. (No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t pull it off on the heels of Grandma’s funeral.) I also wanted to remind everyone again of our brief Faithbooking Crop hiatus.

By the way, I am reading THE BEST BOOK that so relates to how I’m feeling right about life in general.  (I’d given away a copy loooooong ago before even reading it myself.)

the book

Here’s an excerpt of the foreward, written by Rick Warren:

Nothing focuses a person’s priorities in life like learning he is about to die. Many of us would suddenly realize we have spent our lives on things that were not very important. So many of us waste our lives with “when and then” thinking, believing that “when” this or that happens, “then” we will really start living and do something for God that really matters.

That approach is guaranteed to leave you with regrets.

The book (One Month to Live by Kerry and Chris Shook) can be found by clicking HERE.  While we don’t have a ton of say in the when (i.e. birthdate, timing, span), we are given much freedom in the howHow are you…

  • loving?
  • living?
  • creating a legacy?
  • blessing others?
  • spending this precious commodity [time]?

Big things worth pondering today.

Hi Tina,
Thank you for sharing about that book. I took a look and will pick up a copy – great concept. Since losing Grant’s best friend in November, my uncle last month, and now a co-worker last week – it just gets you thinking about life and how you want to make the most of it and make sure the people you know really know how important they are in your life.
Those are beautiful thank you cards. Writing thank you’s are one of those ways to connect and also can have a healing effect as you share memories.

Blessings on your day ~ Jodie

I’m sorry to hear about your recent losses, Jodie. My heart goes out to you and Grant during this difficult season. :(
