New profile pic and flower pin link

I've never really liked my profile pic and am going to need to change out all our photos now that they're about a year old, and we have a new family member! So I had Steven snap a few shots this afternoon, and these were the best two. Which do you like better?



Before we left for our afternoon adventures (Fine Arts Club at the park), I made that cute green flower pin on my shirt using this tutorial on Jones Design Company. I'm learning more than just decorating tips from these new blogs I've been reading!

I made mine out of a cheap stained Ikea blanket that I'd put in the giveaway bag. It took me less than 5 minutes to cut out the little flowers and glue them on with a hot glue gun. And I just pinned it on with a safety pin. One of my style-savvy friends even asked where I bought the shirt!

Mary Clare already wants to make one for herself tonight, and I can see lots of possibilities making hairbows and such! I just need to go find some more glue sticks for the glue gun!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

You look beautiful in both pics, but I like #1 the best. Purple is a great color on you and I love the flower you made. So crafty!

You look great, Blair! I think the lighting is better in the first shot. beautiful. :) The Jones Design Co website is not opening for me, but I'll give it a try later. Maybe they are down for maintanance.

Anthony is sitting with me, asking "who DIS guy? Who DAT guy?" about every picture on the screen. I told him, "That's my friend, Mrs. B!" and he responded, "YES! That's my fend, too, Misses B!"
