being able to do for yourself.
Either you are sneaking around and looking at what folks are linking up on Facebook, their blogs and or message forums.
Either you are sitting around on your Etsy store not because you are afraid to open it but because every idea and thing you have created for it you see pop up in someone else's store and you do not want to deal with the bullshit of them saying you are copying them (it happens).
Either you are befriending people just to copy everything they do on the sly and then BAM you come out blazing as if you originated the idea
Either you are just upfront about things and realize that this world is to big not to share and you welcome it all after realizing that realistically you had to stalk just like folks are stalking you

So with that being said I am going to be inspired by this to create my own. All images courtesy of Not on the High Street (thanks Wendy Mckee)

one of my good friends Jeni Boisvert has been on my case for a long time now LOL. We are always talking about tons of things but one of the convo's that pop's up is umm when are you going to get out there with your photography stuff and as you know I was keeping it under wraps (for several reasons, folks always looking for a discount or trying to get over if they know you, there are TONS of photographers in this area mostly spouses and some of their work is amazing and some that I have seen on facebook and wonder are they charging people for those pictures?)
I just know that people ONLY know me as a scrapbooker .. it is unfortunate when you do come out with other skills and passions you are judged .. I call those people LAMES. I have my training, workshops and other things under my belt .. let's do this. Besides I no longer have the other career in my way.
So now I am getting all my props and going antique shopping and making some baskets and stuff specifically for the babies .. I have a maternity shoot coming up and I am shooting a friend of mines HE is going to be the best ever because he is so animated and already takes some really good photos. We knew each other in Japan so he already knows me and is going to be comfortable and relaxed.
Hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend it is cold as hell here.
