26 smiles november2709_1 november2709_2up november2709_2up_2 This group of twenty-six (oh my!) is quite special, it all started with two people falling in love, many years later, and many children and grandchildren later, the family has grown into twenty six smiles, giggles, hugs, kisses and countless memories. So I was very excited and a bit nervous (that's a lot of people) when my dear friend, Tammie, asked if I'd photograph all of them over this holiday weekend. As I go through the images this evening I can't help but smile, the joy from this morning radiates right through the computer screen. Thank you, Kenney Family, it was a gift to photograph your happiness this morning.

november2509_4november2509_1november2509_2november2509_3 november2409_1 november2409_2 Funny how things happen sometimes... a few weeks ago I decided that one of my business goals for 2010 would be to start getting my items into local shops.
......
All of a sudden I was presented with the opportunity to be a part of Dreamy in Encinitas, for this holiday season! Heather (she dreamed up Dreamy) seeks out only the most beautiful and unique items for her shop and loves to support local artists...so it is quite an honor to be a part of her vision. Many of the items I created are one of a kind, the vintage recipe garlands and ribbon ornaments, plus I relished in the opportunity to work on some special packaging for my sterling silver photograph pendants.
......
It is a dream come true.

Hi Stacey,
Thanks for visiting my blog today. I was just visiting yours this morning. I think I clicked on it off of another blog and I added one of your necklaces to my etsy faves. I really like your necklaces and your photography.
