Wheat field

Here's a quick post from a photo shoot two days ago. Karen and Jesse wanted some family photos done in film, so we drove out to a wheat field and snapped a few. Laramie took a couple shots with his new GoPro, which are the pictures you see here.
Be sure to head over to their photography blog to see what else they've been up to!

E's Room

Hi there! We've been enjoying a fantastic, hectic summer... and it's only the tenth of June! I love how we wait all year for the warm weather to arrive and then we cram it full of activity because we want to take advantage of every second.  I've probably said it before, but it's true... summer in Montana is amazing!

Not so long ago, when it was cold and I was very pregnant (!), I took some time to prepare a sweet nursery for our sweet baby, Eden (though at the time we didn't know we were having a girl!) We're excited that Eden's nursery is being featured today over on Apartment Therapy.  Here are a few sneak peaks, but go visit Apartment Therapy to see all the pictures!

Tulle circle skirt

Well, the last time we blogged, Eden was still in her mama's belly, and we had no idea even that she was a girl. And now look at her! A chubby 3+ month old. She is ever fashionable in red skinny jeans, while her mama shows off her tulle circle skirt. Here are a few pictures of the project:

^^Cutting out one layer of lining and four layers of tulle, using a circle skirt pattern from a skirt I made last fall. Here's a good reference for making your own pattern.

^^Arranging and pinning all the layers to prepare for sewing on an elastic waistband. The waist was just the right size that Karen could slip the skirt on over her head and we didn't need to add any buttons or other fasteners.

^^The seamstress hard at work!

^^The finished product (along with cute chubby baby feet).

^^Just because you can't have too many pictures of baby E :)
