Christmas gifts...

I'm still waiting to write my post about our dear family dog that passed away in October.  I haven't come to grips with it enough to hash out all of the details yet, but I will...

In similar news, with Christmas around the corner, I've decided to do an assortment of photo related items as Christmas gifts.  I got their little flyer in the mail the other day and then I saw this link in a friends post and decided to join along...

That link above allows for bloggers to receive 50 free holiday cards!  Hello!  That's easy!  Just click, sign up and post about it!

I'm loving this calendar and hope to create a few of these for gifts and my sister and I hope to put together a few photo books so that we can all remember our moments with Buddy.  My mom always thought that it would be a good idea for us to create these photo books instead of printing photos and putting them into books.  I've used Shutterfly in the past to do this but I need to become more regular about doing it!  I'm usually good for these photo books on special occasions... just not regular picture taking photo books.

Maybe I should make that a New Year's resolution?!?

Anyway, how do you document your photos?  Do you print them and put them in books?  Do you make photo books?

I love Shutterfly! I just got my free it too early to send them out;) At the end of the summer I always get a free code for an 8x8 photo book (just pay shipping) so I always make one of those. I have 3 now:)
Cool site, I am checking them out!

I would like the answer to this question myself!!

I have made each member of my family a scrapbook over the past 4 years. They love them. However, I have 3 large boxes full of pictures between me and my parents that need organized. I wanted to take on the project of reorganizing all our photos. But halfway through just separating them I didn't know if I should put them back in a NEW photo album, or do something online. Online makes more sense, it is just a matter of scanning hundreds of pictures that makes me rethink the project!

I am totally trying to figure it out and looking for something to make the process easier. I agree, I too am good for special occasions, but not regularly and not with big projects!! I will let you know what I end up doing :)

I LOVE photo books. I make one each year for the girls. They are very hard to keep up on though...I find myself with a cup of joe, late at night, trying to catch up on several months at a time. I've never made one through Shutterfly, but they look nice. I think I'm going to do the photo calendar idea this year for grandparents...
Oh, you mean I am suppose to print those things off??? I thought they are just suppose to sit on the hard drive! LOL! No, seriously, I use to be an avid scrapbooker. I really enjoyed prnting the pictures and comig up with layouts and pretty papers and embellishments to go with them and then journaling. Having said that it has been years since I have had time to do it (4 kids, 2 are homschooled and soon to add a 3rd, and a photography business and volunteer work). Therefore it really has been quite a while since I printed anything other than a formal wall portrait or two. Maybe that will be my new years resolution to atleast print them out! I might steal that link from you,ofcourse I haven't had time to take our Christmas photos yet either.Hmmmm......

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

clomid vs. follistim

(IUI #4)

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "letters, 1", stating:

"what are the statistics on follistim v. clomid or other oral egg-enhancing drugs?"

Before I responded, I went on just to make sure I knew what I was talking about.  {Nothing like going through a medical procedure, thinking you know everything and then letting an Anonymous comment send me off my track. ha!}

Disclaimer: I'm not a dr. nor do I want to be a dr.  This is what I understand to be the difference.  This isn't fact, other than the links I'm posting, it's just my understanding.  Please DO NOT take my words for fact.

This is what I knew before I did the research:

Both Clomid and Follistim are ovary stimulating drugs that tell your ovaries to produce eggs.  They are both in the same in that aspect of things.  The physical difference is that Clomid is in pill form and taken orally.  Follistim is powder to liquid that is administrated by a pen/shot.
