Soulmates Anniversary Card

Anniversary Card by Crafty Wife Every year for our anniversary I try to make Chris a card.  Last year I made three because I just couldn't decide which one I liked best.  This year though, he's only getting one. I found a Hobby Lobby about twenty minutes away from me and was so excited to go and look around.  I found some great stamps and scrapbook paper that I knew would be perfect for the card I wanted to make Chris.  Let's just say that I am a Hobby Lobby lover now. Goodbye Joann's and Michael's, it was nice knowing you. This Continue reading [...]

Thoughts on Marriage & a Photo Challenge

ISO Photo Challenge from The Photo Ladies This week, I thought it would be fun to combine my photography challenge with a marriage post.  I also wanted to try to shoot using the techniques I learned from my photography class in DC last week. To kick off our anniversary week (we celebrate big around here!), I talked Chris into taking me into DC to see the Cherry Blossoms.  It was horrible.  Not only was it in the 80's with that wonderful humidity, it was ridiculously crowded.  I forgot how bad the crowds can get during the Spring.

Memory Lamp

Memory lamp from Crafty Wife When Chris and I were on our honeymoon in the Caribbean, I decided I wanted to bring back some sand with us.  It was really important to me to make a memory jar from our time there and display it in our living room where everyone that came over could see it.  For a while it held a prime spot on the shelf above our fireplace, but in the months that followed it started to get moved to make way for other things.  Eventually it got put on a side table behind a wedding picture, and that's where it Continue reading [...]

It’s Wedding Week!

featured-image This time two years ago I was packing and getting last-minute things done before our wedding.  It's crazy to me to think that I've been married for almost two years.  While they seem to have flown by, I also feel like I've been married my entire life.  The past two years have been the most wonderful, stressful, loving, and frustrating two years of my life.  And I wouldn't change them for anything. Chris and I got married at Walt Disney World on April 20, 2012.  It was the best day of my life Continue reading [...]

Okay, Continue reading [...]

My Top 10 Photo Spots at the Magic Kingdom

Favorite Places to take photos at the Magic Kingdom It's no secret that I love snapping pictures while at Disney.  Whether I'm taking a billion pictures of Cinderella's Castle or trying to get the perfect angle on Rapunzel's Tower, I always have my camera close by.  In fact, my favorite place to carry it is around my neck so I can quickly take the cap off and snap away so I never miss that perfect shot.  And carrying it around my neck for twelve or more hours a day can get really uncomfortable, so an extra padded camera strap is a must! You'll Continue reading [...]

DC Photography Class

blossoms Looking on Groupon can have many advantages.  One day, while I was browsing, I found a discounted photography class with Remember Forever and signed up on a whim.  I also got my older sister and two friends to do it with me so I wouldn't have to do it alone. I wasn't sure what to expect.  We signed up for the Family, Friends, Children workshop, which specialized in teaching us how to take great portraits.  Since I'm not a big portrait taker, I thought the class would be interesting and Continue reading [...]
