Monday Love / Where oh where…

Another edition of Monday Love

A quote: “It’s good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”  Ursula K. LeGuin

Something personal: It’s been a while.  I know.  A long while actually.  The fall was busy and then I fell off the photography planet and into another world, otherwise known as “my life.”  I’ve spent time with my family, time cooking (and even BAKING), I joined a running club with the goal of running my first 10K in March, I’m eating healthier.  I have also been spending time being creative in other ways that give me joy, like planning ridiculously cute details for Jake’s third birthday party (even though it will be super small) and thinking of ideas for Kylie’s possible “Pirate Birthday Party” in March, and even MY fiesta in April — the BIG FOUR-O!!  In short, I’ve been enjoying a life of what some people would call “leisure” and I’m trying not to feel guilty about it.  Would you believe I actually started designing MY OWN family album from our beach session last October?  *GASP*  All of these things happen between carpool, laundry, dishes, childcare, and husband-care (is that a word), but I have enjoyed every minute.

I cannot promise when things will get back into full swing for Tiny Heart Studios, as I’m taking a little break right now.  I have some other projects in the works, one involving the Atlanta Children’s Shelter.  And I thought I would share a recent project that got my work on the cover of the 2012 Winter/Spring WHERE Atlanta Street Map & Visitors Guide!  I did some pictures of some well known Atlanta landmarks and this one was picked up by the Publisher of Where Atlanta.

The original image:

And the map:

Here are a couple other images – the Atlanta Fish Market and one from the World of Coca-Cola:

I don’t really consider nature/landscape to be my specialty, but I had fun dabbling.  😉

Something helpful: So maybe I’m behind the times, but I rarely (if ever) go to YouTube for anything.  I joined the facebook wave, and I do have several Pinterest Boards, including one dedicated to what my dream home (specifically the kitchen) would look like!  But, I guess I always thought of YouTube as a venue for a bunch of teenagers to make videos of themselves doing silly things.  I know, I know, it’s SO MUCH MORE.

So for anyone else who is maybe a little like me, and just doesn’t think of YouTube as super helpful, here are a couple videos that I think ARE pretty cool.

Recently I linked over to this video about how to curl your hair with a curling iron and it was really quite helpful.  The link, of course, was from Pinterest.  That got me wondering how many other helpful videos might be out there – and there’s A LOT!

Gordan Ramsay taught me how to chop an onion (I was doing it all wrong)

This one showed me a MUCH better way to cut a bell pepper into strips

And the parents that caught this on video and put it on YouTube should be given a hefty sum of money.  Hilarious!

That’s all for now!  Happy Monday!!!
