Crossing my fingers.....

for my website to be up and live by Monday! WOO-HOO! =) I finally figured out my little problem I was having so now it's a matter of sizing all the photos and thumbnails for it (a very time-consuming job I might add) and fine tuning all the little details. =) I'm so excited...and it's actually not as hard as I thought it would be. So for you guys who know very little about html and stuff....it's EASY! If I can do it, anyone can....I'm a computer idiot! =)

Just to forewarn you...you guys have seen most of the photos that will be in it...Sam and Gracie, Gracie and Sam....and just a few other little ones. I need new models...oh, I've said that before right? =)

Here's some recent ones...nothing major. I'm doing some more shots for Leslie and Wiggy hats so I'll post those. I haven't had much time to spend with Sam doing it so I really need to get on the ball with that. =)



LOL....LOVE that look! =)




This is a oldie of Gracie....I was going through my photos and I passed this one up...not sure why (click on it to make it larger...it looks way better). A reason not to delete your photos to quickly...I sometimes come across one that I've missed the first time around. =) Now only if my computer doesn't crash with all the photos on it...that would be a nightmare.

I so wished I lived closer to you! My DD Jane and Sam would look so cute together... Jane with her big brown eyes and brown latin skin would look so cute with Sam and her light eyes and creamy skin! They are about the same size....with the same attitudes..... maybe that would be too frustrating.... now that I think about it!
Well, I know that you'll gets tons of clients really soon....

I know what you mean about NOT deleting photos b/c you'll find one later that you like. I think it's b/c when we first look at our pictures we have an expectation and when we go back we look at them with no expectation and see true emotion. Great images!

Just love your pics. Can't wait for your website. The black and white one of Sam, Oh My Gosh, gorgeous! Anyway, I have looked everywhere to try and figure out how to put an image as my title. Did you figure it out yourself or find somewhere on how to do it? I know nothing about html. I hope I am not bothering you. Thankds!

HI Brenda- been lurking on ILP for a long time and read how much trouble you are having with Winklet. I set mine up a few months ago. I'd be glad to help however I can! I am also "down the road" from you- near McKinney. Small world! I always love your pix of Gracie and Sam!

Hey Brenda! I just wanted to thank you for adding my blog link to your site. I had no idea (even though I look at your blog...I never noticed it over there). I'm honnored that I would be there :) I need to make a list on mine as well. You'd for sure be on it as I'm here every day looking :)

Thanks so much everyone....I made setting it up much harder than it had to be. =)

Jen...I'll take you up on that! =)

Jessica,
I bought the tutu in IL while we were visiting family. I have no clue what the store was called....sorry. But do a search on ebay and I'm sure a ton will come up and also Michelle Walker has some fabulous ones too. =)

Sharon....wouldn't that be a pretty picture...though like you said, 2 with the same attitude...watch out! =)

Katie....first you need to upload your image to Photobucket because you'll need a URL address...then email me at Bleann@msn.com because the best way to show you is to copy and paste my template as to where to insert it. =)

Kay,
Thank you for your offer to help, that was so awesome of you. I have a ton of friends that live in McKinney and teach too...I bet we know the same circle of people. =)

Tiffany,
I just purchased a template from Winklet...it's #23 and you fill everything in. It's pretty straight forward, I of course made it hard but after I figured out what I was doing, it was pretty easy. =)

Thanks Jenny...I actually have one of them together when Sam was a little little one...it was with my p&s camera and it was awful. Come to think of it...that's it of the 2 of them together...weird. I'll have to nip that one in the rear and take more of them together. =)

Thanks Janine....I can't wait to see yours. =)

Adrienne...that's so funny! I guess I'm officialy open! =)

Jen,
Pure luck...honestly I didn't even think about them but her eyes are sooo light I could probably get some with just a small ray of light coming in a room...though I can't promise the photo would be good. =)

Melissa,
I check yours everday on my daily blog rounds! LOVE your stuff ever since the first time I saw you on ILP! =)

Nadia...thanks sweetie! Yeah, the colors will probably be changing alot for me....I can never make up my mind. How's your coming...I can't wait to see it either. =)

Amy,
Oh, I forgot about those...I'm going to have to add some...especially the geese flying south one! =) Thanks sweetie!

SlS,
I actually made them....well sewed them togther. My sister found some really cute table napkins at Anthropologie and I just whipped them up. I use to always make pants for Gracie that way when she was smaller....it's much easier than getting fabric because the napkins are already hemmed. =)

LOL Jen! Sorry...I have a bad habit to sticking to deadlines! =)

Thanks again everyone...you guys are the best and such great support for me. =)
