I just had a chance to see Mindy's music video for Anchor yesterday and fell in love. This is the title track of her lastest album which came out last month. The wings they used throughout the video are gorgeous and the illustrations by April Meeker give it a dreamy surrealism that makes you want to float away.

Week in Review 9/9/10

OK - this one requires just a smidge of explaining. I've been working the heck out of my new scanner. It's an Epson Perfection V600 Photo scanner that my uber-awesome hubby got me for my birthday and it ROCKS! It will scan photos, documents, slides and even negatives! This baby is amazing!

So I spent a couple weeks scanning a box of slides from my mum-in-law's basement and I've gotta tell you, they are priceless. The images make me want to cry. Aside from that, the beginning of September was all about Homecoming and trying to find a dress that didn't look like it came from the red light district. Ugh.

Cheater Pants

Yes, I'm totally taking a shortcut here. I just haven't had any extra time to put into the bloggity blog these days. I've been pretty good about at least photographing part of my weeks ... though there's been a major shortage of fun projects and good food. (sad days) Lately it's been all I can do to get the kids through their homework and to school on-time the next day ... with homework in tow, still not sure why this is such a difficult concept for them to grasp onto. Grrrr ...

But with Halloween around the corner and Christmas right behind that, there will HAVE to be a few projects in the works. We also have a new baby in our extended family and one more coming next week, so gifties for the wee ones is also in order. Please hang in there with me. One of these days I'll be able to sink my teeth back into Blogger.
