Remembering August 2009.

And then came August 2009...

One morning at work, I accidentally knocked the automatic door off its hinge. Oops. I tried to put it back on... with my hand. NOT a good idea. Next time I'll get gloves. Or you know, ask someone else to do it instead... ;-)


We honored a group of people, who were celebrating five years at work with The Container Store. One of my *favorite* people on *Earth* received her 5-Year pin that night. Pima. Oh, Miss Pima. Seriously... the sweetest, southern lady you'll EVER meet. Calls me "Darlin," "Sweet Pea," and gives me a hug every time I see her (several days a week). I heart her so much. She's my hero.

And I babysat for my friend Shannon's little girl, Lily. Lily is seven. And Oh.My.Goodness precocious and out-spoken. I love her TO PIECES. We spent FIVE hours together that day, and when her parents called to tell me they were on their way, I told them to do a few loops around the block, so I could just have a few more precious minutes with this kid!


Seriously, don't you want to eat her up?! Perhaps, some day soon I'll show the whole photo shoot. I got some awesome shots of this kid. (It was her dad's birthday, so we printed them up and made him a mini-book with reasons she loves him. Cuuuuute.)

She said THE funniest things that day. After the first gem...

"My dad was prepared to turn 44 today, but he's only turning 43."

... I decided I needed to keep a notebook and pen with me at all times when in her presence. I made a layout with my favorite quotes (I'll be sharing soon).

I handed her the camera too, and this is the shot she got of me...

And my favorite projects for the month of August. I created A LOT in August, so this was REALLY hard to narrow down. LOL. This altered art, which sits on the secretary in our entryway...


And this totally fun one about hot air balloons...

And this one I did as a guest for a Studio Calico blog challenge (5-Product Challenge)...

August was fun! I need to have Lily over again. That day was too much fun! :-)
