A Little of This and a Little of That

A Little of This...

Aren't these pictures wonderful? I would love to claim them as my own, but I can't. :) These photos were taken by my friend Katrina Kennedy. I met Katrina through digital scrapbooking. One of the hallmarks of a Katrina layout is her wonderful photography. Several months ago I took one of her online photography classes. She provided great instructions, critiques and feedback. It was so much fun plus I feel like I improved as a photographer. Starting next week she will be teaching a new class called "Your Kids: Captured Through the Lens". I'm looking forward to taking the class because I am in a rut! All my kid portraits are close-ups and they are starting to look the same. I know Katrina will challenge and inspire. I plan on taking this class and hope to see some of you there too!

The Homeschool Post is going to be hosting its annual homeschool blog awards. Starting on Oct. 19 blog nominations will be accepted. Click on the link above to see the categories. This is my first year in the homeschooling blogging community, so I'm looking forward to nominating some blogs. :)

We've enjoyed using various copywork from Westvon publishers. They have downloadable copywork pages on so many different subjects that we can usually find something that will interest each child. This month at the Homeschool Shop, you can download a free Happy Scribe copywork packet.

I've noticed that the site I was using for my free downloads is not up right now. Hopefully all will be well and my files will be available tomorrow. If not, I'll be moving the files in the next day or two. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I've also added the featured blogger for Look Who's Talking About Workboxes. Click on the picture to read more.

Your blog is lovely! I found a link to it over at Heart of the Matter's forum.
I looked into digital scrapbooking earlier tonight. After looking at your blog, and am even MORE interested in looking into it more.
I am also waiting on "All About Spelling" levels 1 and 2 to arrive any day now at our house. I see you use it also and are quite pleased with it. I hope we are too!
Nice "meeting" you:)
