We’re heading out this afternoon for the Huntsman event in possibly record setting temperatures and the last vestiges of snow on the tips of our mountains should soon be gone. Sweet! I’m fed up with the color White…
A lot of photos will be taken today but in the meantime here’s some shots that trickled back from Steph’s trip to the South.
Steph’s latest puzzle, painted. I have mixed feelings about this process, am I Steph’s puzzle painting posting boy or should I be grateful that she’s given me something unique to post about tonight? A little of both I suppose :-)
Steph likes to assemble complex colorful jigsaw puzzles. It’s then my duty as the in-house blog photographer to take a photo of the completed puzzle, under extremely crappy lighting conditions, and somehow express it’s beauty in a blog post.
This puzzle is called Come to My Playhouse and after looking at the original photo I’m struck by how a puzzle cutout process and a painting app can mess with a nice shot!
We used to have this really nice guest bedroom. It had this great bunk bed made out of logs, in keeping with the fact that we live in a log home. The bed was initially in the front bedroom, but on the day we moved in, Riley moved the bed into the back bedroom and my office was born, as was the guest bedroom.
Somewhere along the line Steph realized we never had any guests, and she was envious of my office, so she took the room over for her crafts. She’s been working hard lately to clean it out, and here’s the result :-)
This is Stephanie’s latest cross stitch. It’s a wedding present for her bosses daughter. She put a lot of work into this one and I put a lot of effort into capturing it from within it’s wooden frame, covered with reflective glass. I don’t have a tripod (yet) so it was challenging, and the shot came out a bit uneven, but the detail is great.
