2011 Ultimate Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Hello!This is me. I'm Nicole. 

Some days I feel creative and others I don't know what to share. I'm a little shy and am not the first one to jump in front of the camera. I'm a stay at home mom. I sew a little. I create a lot of projects for my girls. I take even more pictures. I enjoy capturing shots of everything, mostly my adorable girls.

This is Lorelei: She's not quite 4.

This is Hannah: She's not quite 2.

Here they are together:

This is My Husband, Matt:


I do have a wonderful husband, but believe it or not he is more shy than me. He doesn't really like being shown off on my blog, but he is wonderful, brilliant and wonderful with the kids. He should be shown off, so I like to share his captures from time to time.

For instance, he took this:

Oh, whoops. How did that get in there? Since it is here. This is my husband, Matt:
 Do you like how I did that?

What might you see on my blog? 
A little bit of everything really. Here are some of my captures.

He does exist. Here's my husband going on a very cold walk in the park with our oldest daughter Lorelei.

Oh, yep. I am sneaking in a picture of our dog. His name is Bones. He balances cookies on his nose.

You may see quite a few of these: Photos of the Lake. I enjoy taking picture of the lake (my backyard).

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to come and see me, my blog and what I'm all about. 

Please feel free to stick around a while and check out what else is around here. There are pages and buttons galore. Have fun!

  1. Wow, you have some awesome photos. Thanks so much for stopping by Tots and Me. The photo of the bears, just wanted to mention, the tiny one is actually not stuffed, it is a tiny little beaded thing my oldest son got me several years ago.
    I also have a Hannah, but she is going to be turning 1 next week.
    You have a very sweet family!

  2. Stopping by from UBP. You take incredible photos. Wish I could take some half as good as yours. Your little girls are adorable too. I'm a mommy to a boy - who's just over 2.

  3. Thanks so much for stopping by Emma's Lunch, your photos are gorgeous.

    I'm your newest follower :)

  4. Some beautiful pictures! I'm a SAHM to 2 as well; my daughter is 3 1/2 and my son is almost 2. I love the pic with your little girl in the tutu; it reminds me of my daughter.

  8. Wow, what a variety of great photos! Since I have a two-year-old and am a dog lover, those are my natural favs ;-)

  9. I'm in awe of your photos, you have such a great eye and of course such cute subjects help. I'm more of a point and shoot kind of girl. And I'm very impressed with the restraint your dog is showing, I know I'd be devouring that cookie within a second if someone tried to balance it on my nose. So nice to meet you through the UBP!
