I did a thing! I bought a Cricut.

It’s way too cold to go outside and I don’t have Colton to drive around to hockey so, I thought why not.

Here is some of the stuff that I have made. And it’s all for sale!

These are $10.

Milestone circles. 4 inch acrylic. Can make them whatever color you want. $35 for the set.

Memorial Blocks. Includes the light. The backside of this one has a wedding photo of my Grandparents on it. $40

Lots of onsies.

This adorable shirt for a special one year old! I can make more if you’re interested.

And bibs! Lots of bibs.

So until the weather warms up, I’ll be at the kitchen table, crafting. Then I’ll be back out shooting.


Here is another house I photographed back in the late summer of 2020. It is another one that I cannot find any concrete history on so, I’m just going to leave it here and if that ever changes, I’ll re-write my post and share its story.

This home is well hidden. It was rented out for a time but once the last tenants moved it was quickly taken over by Mother Nature. I did not get close as the vegetation was quite high and I was alone. Better to be safe than sorry. I know that Cade’s aunt worries about me alone on these excurisons and the possibility of there being a well, so I err on the side of caution.


This place is right outside my door. Well, not really but its a stone’s throw.

Its been on my to-do list for a very long time and I just sorta took advantage of it being there and something I could get to at any time. So last spring I wandered over there and the current owners were there and said come any time. The only stipulation was that I close the gate and don’t let the horses out.

If you know me you know that I am afraid of dogs. And to me, horses are big dogs. So when I went I decided I would not go inside the gate if I didn’t have to.

It was windy as heck out but the clouds were amazing. To me the sky looks painted. Believe me when I say that there is not filter on this photograph, this is straight out of the camera. The sky is almost too good to be true.

I have tried to get more information on this property and cannot. And given that its been some time since I’ve been out and posted, I’ve given up on the idea that I will be able to solidify any further information so, I’m posting.

I can tell you that the property has been rumored to be owned by a couple of different families whose ancestors still live in the area. I can also tell you that the house was last occupied in 1920.
