Dr.Who Disney Art

I always find it interesting when artist take things we know so well and take a new spin on them. A friend shared with me this website, a mash up of Disney and Dr. Who.

The artist is Karen Hallion, She has websites and facebook pages and Here you can find her Etsy Page but I can’t help but think how creative this is.  The Time Lord could cross into any number of things we love…

Jen and Mike: Wedding

I was honored to attend another wedding this weekend. Jen and I bonded at my 1st Rosetown play 2 years ago.

Fall Photo Fun day!

I have had a photo passion since my parents got me my 1st camera. It was the style that still used the amazing cube flashes! After that Grandfather Anderson handed down to me a Polaroid camera and my 1st digital camera. This is a hobby that clearly stuck but in the past year or so my friends have welcomed me into their lives with it.

I have had the opportunity to get to know Charell the past 3 or 4 years through Church events and Softball. (this girl can hit, look out Jason) It’s always your prayer for your friends to find an EPIC love, one that chases you down, waits for the right timing and will swoop in.  Jason did all of that.

The story as I know it is, these two have known each other for a while. Even dated once but it wasn’t the right timing. They both had some growing to do but just a few years later that flame was rekindled! Just spending the afternoon with them you can tell Jason is the guy God has for Charell. They play well and have so much fun together, he’s defensive of her (in a “take a conceal and carry class because I love you” kind of way), they put God first in many of the decisions they make, and once Jason figures out what to do with his hands when taking photos it became hard to pick just  few photos for a sneak peek… I narrowed it down to 70 but here are just a few.

Pumpkin spice and everything nice

Just in time for fall random obsessions of mine is back! Just like boots, carmel apples, crisp weather, pretty leaves, pumpkin spice and everything nice I’M BACK.
Today I’m going to take you on an adventure through the Renaissance Festival! Just another great fall tradition here in Minnesota. It’s a place where wizards, princesses, knights in shining armor all roam free together along with mermaids and fairies. I think its one of the only places you can walk around openly with a sword, a real sword, on your hip!
The Renaissance Festival also has a photo contest so below ill include 11 photos for you to vote which when you think I should enter in the contest.

Cali dreaming 2

I got the opportunity this morning to tour an all organic shed. It was beautifully simple and they had a strong emphasis on rebuilding the soil with compost and rock dust. Great hard working people with a fine operation!

A personal favorite was the 2 rows of sweet pea flowers. I love the sweet pea scent at bath and body but I do not think I had ever smelt it in person before… Amazing!

Cali dreaming

I am touring in Cali for work and I hear the weather in the Midwest is less then ideal… So I will post you some sunny photos to look at as I tour.

Trash to Treasure

Last summer my neighbor was cleaning out the garage and house. I couldn’t help but look at some of the bigger items near the dumpster, in particular the snowblower and a dresser. Last summer painted the dresser and added new hardware in it looks marvelous. The snowblower was its own mystery, It didn’t work and it never worked for the owner and he no longer wanted to try and fix it. He had also inherited it from another person. As it turns out all it needed was a new spark plug… Fixers keepers! Hopefully the snow on March 5 will be the last snow and we can finally move on to spring…
