Embrace the Camera

Okay, today's embrace the camera is a BIG DEAL.  You might not realize why, but for me it is a first.  It is a picture of me WITHOUT MAKEUP.  I know, for some of you, it's like "What's the big deal?"  "Seriously, is this girl THAT vain?" but you have to realize I am a BLONDEvery blonde.  Therefore, my eyelashes are also blonde. 
In high school, I told a guy that my eyelashes were blonde, and he looked at me for a minute and said "huh.  I always just thought they were naturally black." 
Um, no. 
They are not.  They are blonde.  I tend to wear a lot of makeup, especially in the eye region.  Now this picture is as brave as I get for now.  You probably can't even tell...I'm looking down, I even put it in black and white to mask it.  But for me, it is a big step that I'm letting you see me without eye makeup. 
 So there.

This was a picture of Isaac doing his first stamping job.  Don't worry, we won't let him work on actual orders.  Yet.  (haha). 
He wanted to stamp a copper bracelet for himself.  He wanted it say
Transformers Optimus Prime
(with rockets on each side of course)
Of course. Not his name or his family, but Tranformers Optimus Prime
He did almost all of the stamping himself and when he hammered, he hammered hard.  I was genuinely afraid he was going to hammer his finger, but he didn't.
He's determined that he's an actual employee of Tag...You're It now and will probably be asking for a paycheck soon.


  1. Gorgeous. My boys also want to help with my craftiness - but they're 3 and 1 and there are lots of needles involved - so for now they'll have to settle for just watching. Great photo!

  2. You are beautiful! Great job on your bravery for 1) posting a pic with no makeup and 2) letting Isaac stamp his own Optimus Prime bracelet. :)
