Just a few days ago we had our first snowstorm this winter. We were all excited for a new chance to play in the snow. Besides all the fun things we are planning on doing in and on the snow…what an amazing sight!!! We went to Caledonia for their Winter Wonderland parade…I felt just like a little kid…the snow just kept on falling…with flakes almost as large as snowballs (well, not quite, but it sounded good)…we got our boots and snow gear out and just enjoyed!

Another really nice thing about having snow…it just get’s you in that Christmas spirit! I will be baking gingerbread cookies this week, maybe some lefse and krumkaker as well. Mmm…it feels like Christmas!

I have also been busy making Christmas cards…for my clients. Don’t expect any cards until after Christmas from our family.  : )

Here are some of the cards I have been working on this year. Enjoy!

As a lot of you know, I also do a fair amount of design projects. I plan on adding some of these projects to my blog in the future.

Here is a link to a site I did for a client, and dear friend, right here in Spring Grove: Vintage Hat Shows. I attended one of her shows. It was a delight! What amazing information she shared, both about the hats themselves and the period they were worn. Who knew the phrase “the bees knees” came from the 20’s. Pretty cool! The show was at our local nursing home. It was such a joy to see all the ladies, even a couple of men, curiously checking out the hats and then wearing them during the show. What was so special, was that some of them actually wore the hats that were presented and remembered the time well.

I hope you at some point have a chance to attend one of the Vintage Hat Shows. All you have to do is call up Heather and she’ll bring hats for everyone to wear. You will also learn a lot of wonderful information about women and different time periods as well. If you are really lucky, she’ll bring her two girls and my two girls as models. They know how to put on a show!

Here are some quick shots that were taken during the presentation.

Last year my good friend wanted me to take some shots of her kids. Wouldn’t you know it…Dane either got his face scratched up or decided he needed a haircut…all by himself. Ha ha ha…kids are just fun! Well, last summer came and went. Finally, this year we made it work!

The girls were excited and Dane thought, after one or two shots,…hey this was easy…now I’m done…let’s play! Not so fast buddy! He was a trooper and we did a bunch more. After all the shots we all went on a little relaxing trip down the valley. Just wishing summer wouldn’t be all over so soon!

Here are some of the shots of these wonderful, beautiful kids…that I get to hang out with often. Enjoy!

I had the pleasure of making quite a few Christmas Cards this season. Here are a few. Enjoy! Also, wishing everyone a very merry Christmas and everything good for the new year. God Jul og Godt Nytt År!

Laura called me to come out and get some pictures of her kids. I had fun chasing the kids around. Gavin was as willing as Gunnar was not. Gunnar wanted to drive the ATV around instead. Forget doing pictures, this kid is a machine buff.  : ) We had fun and got a variety of fun images.  For their 4×8 Christmas card I did a variety of styles and Laura immediately went for the retro look. Thanks for the fun day!

This little princess was her mother’s favorite for the 5×7 folded watercolor card. It turned out beautifully!  Kenny herself came up with the wording, which I think is soooo sweet!

Here is the inside that folds down. Aren’t the kids just yummy!

Artsy feet. Too cute. I especially love how Pauley’s shorts look so short and Gabe’s shorts look soooo oversized. Let’s not overlook the baby chubs on Libby’s arms. Sweet!

A 4×8 card from one of this years weddings. Natasha’s favorite shots are all included. Even the horses in the background. Great memories from an amazing day!

My sister-in-law called me up, as usual  : ). “Hey, Kathrine, would it be any trouble to make a card for us?” Of course not! I love making cards and took the cute shot she emailed, enhanced it and made three different ideas. Both her kids and ours agreed on this design. This card is a 5×5 and as always metallic. I LOVE metallic!

The first time I met Heather and Abe and their kids I did pictures for little Theron. He’s not so little anymore and this time I got to photograph the whole family. First we went up to a cabin and did some shots by appletrees and tall weeds. What a blast! Later I went to their hose to do a couple of headshots. Young kids are always challenging, because you have about two minutes to get what you need…then the’re DONE!  : ) Big brother Joey and Theron were awesome and I had a hard time putting my camera down. Thanks for playing with me! This is the front to their 5×7 folded watercolor card. The blue turned out just as bright and blue as I had imagined. The icy blue is Heather’s favorite color as well. Cool!

Here is the inside. I just love the wording Heather added. Gotta love those toes!

What a sweeeeet moment with the boys! I have to do something artsy with this shot later. It is just too cute!!!

This is our card this year. I wanted a little space to add a personal message to each and every one. Usually I add a letter with updates from the past year, but this year I just didn’t have, or take, the time. There’s always next year! I enjoy getting them, so I’ll do my best.

…and the backside.

What a beautiful day for this outdoors wedding at Macal Golf Course! After the ceremony on the tea-off for hole one the bridal party took a great blue bus to Spring Grove because of a detour. After a quick water break they went on to Eitzen and the newly remodeled community center. Check out some of the images below.
