Barrett on State Street

Barrett was practicing his smolder last night.  We were out on assignment and I grabbed this picture of Barrett standing alone in front of the Wisconsin Capitol in front of him and State Street in the background with the sun setting.  He felt like such a cool kid.


Find Joy in the Journey Barn Board Sign Tutorial

I've been so busy!  I can't believe how time has gone by so quickly.  And now it's going to Halloween and then November?!?!  How can it be so?

Here is a cool craft I did over the last month.  It's kind of a mash up a couple things I saw on Pinterest with my own twist.

It's this paint stick sign tutorial from Creations by Kara.

I used reclaimed barn boards and scrap fabric that I had lying around and just used paints that I had in the basement from other projects.  When I painted the barn boards, I wiped the white paint on to give it a more rustic look and some boards absorbed the paint more than others.  This was an easy, inexpensive craft that turned out pretty cute!
