This is the time of year for wedding albums! I have ordered a crazy amount in the past month, and I always love when I see the big brown box on my doorstep! Unfortuantely, I haven’t taken photos of most of them before I send them off to my clients, but I made a point of doing that for a couple this morning. Wedding albums are the perfect way to house and display wedding photos! To see why I believe investing in quality products for your wedding photos is so important, see this post.

For now, here are some recent albums! I love my client’s creativity in what they chose to have engraved on the spine! These are all 10×8 (I also offer 14×11 albums) leather-bound, flushmount albums, and they are much larger in person than they appear in these photos!This next one is a sample album I show prospective clients. I keep the album design as clean and simple as possible, with the number of photos on each layout ranging from one to fifteen.The options for album covers are endless, with different sizes of images and accent leathers!Oh, how eager I am to deliver these to my clients in the next couple days!!:)

    Tina - Beautiful Allison! I really need to update my sample albums. Wish they weren’t so dang pricey!

    Jacinthe - Can I just copy and paste Tina’s comment here?? She said the exact. same. thing. I was going to write. :)

    Elaine - Really nice! I’m seriously thinking of moving from
    A square format album. I think you’ve sold me!!

My itch to create has been more intense this month than usual. Likely because I’ve had a little time to spare, it’s been a month without weddings, and Christmas is near! Earlier this month, I pulled out my sewing machine to first create a scarf I saw online and thought to myself “this will be easy; I can handle this!” Everything was going well…until the very end, and it was obvious that my scarf had some major issues. It reminded me of taking Algebra in 9th grade. I remember speeding through problems (because I liked to get my work done as quickly as I could!), thrilled that I understood what to do, but then at the very end my heart sunk when I realized the small mistake I made back on the second step messed up the entire problem. As I looked at my hopeless scarf (a couple holes and spots of bunched-up fabric), I concluded then and there that sewing. requires. perfectionism.

And if you know me well, you’ll know that I am most certainly not a perfectionist when it comes to personal things. {business is a different story – I definitely seek perfection in getting correct exposure in camera, editing, etc.}

I’m more of a create-as-I-go kind of person, and although I often enjoy the process of creating something, I like to be efficient.

However, sewing definitely requires a plan, accuracy and patience!!! So, this art form is a bit out of my realm, but it’s SO fun when something I make is a success!

    Tina - I want to break out my sewing machine this winter too – my stuff never turns out quite right either though! PS, you look so pretty in this picture – you have the best smile!

    Courtney - You are soooo adorable! I love this photo. The lighting, props, and everything about it make me happy and inspired to create!

    Gail - Ohhh Allison, we are SOO alike! I, too, tried my hand at sewing two years ago, thinking, “I can TOTALLY do this!” I attempted an apron and was SO frustrated at the whole thing, I had to throw in the towel!

    I will say this, I DEARLY love knitting! I think you would really pick it up (or crocheting!) You don’t need quite the perfectionism at the beginning and I love the process!

I had the yummiest recipe to share with you today! However, it turns out that this is my busiest week of the year yet. I have two weddings to edit in 3 days, and on Thursday I head to Iowa for a wedding there on Friday. I am so grateful for really amazing clients to work with this year, but I am eager for this crazy season to be complete! So my tasty treat for the day? Apple Cider.

With marshmallows?! Why not?:)

Prior to this fall, I would have told you that I do not like apple cider. But last weekend changed that for me! Grant and I went to the Louisburg Cider Mill, and I got to experience real, fresh apple cider and…WOW! I can’t believe I’ve gone 26 years without this amazing fall drink! We also shared an apple cider doughnut….tasty but not as life changing as the cider.Happy Tuesday! I’m off to bake some apple crisp for dinner with friends tonight…I found an amazing recipe that I’ll have to share another week;)
