i heart faces - silhouette

Well, here's my first i faces entry in many months. I happened to see on someone else's blog that this week's challenge is "silhouette" and I immediately thought of this photo and decided to come out of my self-imposed i faces retirement! It was taken last fall at the NY State Fair. It's not the best photo but I love the colors of the sky and the tents in the background, which I enhanced with Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo.

Monday Mugs - Umbrella

Yes, it's true...I have officially returned to the blogosphere after...well, after a really long time. I have my reasons for not feeling bloggy this year, but that's another post. For this post, I am joining up with Oswald Cuties for Monday Mugs.

This week's theme is Umbrella.

If you've followed my blog for a while, you know who this favorite sidekick and partner in crime, lil' J. She was 3 in the first picture. Second picture, 2 years later, same raincoat and umbrella! I love to look at those pics and see how much she's grown! Now she's 6 1/2, the raincoat is long outgrown and the umbrella broken.

Just a few more cute "umbrella" pics of my little buddy. We used to love going for walks in the rain!

I'm a bad blogger

OK, to all of you who actually read this blog, so sorry for the lack of updates! There's not really been anything worthy of mention going on in my life, and I've not been feeling particularly inspired by the i ♥ faces themes lately so I haven't been doing them. I do have 2 things to report, though. #1 my dog died which is very sad. #2 I got a new camera - a Nikon D3000! - which is very happy. Once I have that bad boy all figured out, I'm sure I'll be posting all sorts of pictures! Also mulling over trying out some new stuff in my etsy store, so stay tuned for that because it might just involve a Win-it Wednesday!

i heart faces week 8

Week 8 - "Hands-On Fun" Photo Challenge

It's time for some "hands-on" fun at i faces this faces required! I love this theme and have been wishing for it for many months now...I love hand photos and what they tell about a person.

This is a photo I took of Lil' J last summer. She was helping my mom plant flowers in the garden, something she's loved to do since she was 2 years old. She was so excited when I gave her her very own pair of child-sized Dora the Explorer gardening gloves and could not wait to put them on and dig in! In years past she hated getting her gloves dirty...clearly she has now gotten over that!

Happy Birthday I Heart Faces!

i faces just turned one year old! Here's to another year of awesome photos!

Week 2: Photo Challenge - "Best Face Photo"

This is my little cousin Cobi. I took this photo on Christmas Day. My dad has this organ in the hall and despite all the presents and decorations filling the house at the holidays, my little cousins are always drawn to the organ. On this particular day, little Cobi was pounding on the keys a bit too hard and had been told by his mother not to touch it again...but what 3-year-old can resist? I love his big, dark eyes and the deer-in-the-headlights look that spread across his face when he realized he'd been caught in the act!
