My new cameras!

The sun was shining through my office window, the pugs were snoring at my feet, and I was thinking of the warm, sunny days in the not-so-distant future where I’ll be running around at weddings with a GIANT smile on my face shooting in the beautiful, gorgeous, mid-west sun! :) Photographing gorgeous weddings. Gosh, I love my job. So much! :)

I got bored with my computer and went downstairs to my sewing machine…..I giggled to myself as I thought about how funny it would be to try and make a fabric, replica of my camera! Who would have one of those…I WOULD, as I giggled to myself again. So I sketched a few ideas and pulled out the trusty crate of felt. I started cutting and envisioning this little thing come together as I smiled and sewed for the next 30 minutes. I raced into the other room, giggling again and interrupting Sports Center, to display my new creation to Aaron. He thought it was quite amusing. So I made a few more.

I decided it needed the “official kid test” so I let Nora play with them for awhile and watched her as she mimicked what she had seen me do in the past; so adorable! She LOVED them and it proved to me that my idea was fabulous!

So, here they are. My brand new cameras for this wedding season (well….not really!) :)
