In All My Spare Time...

Sorry to have been AWOL from the blog. Sigh...

It's all the free time I have now.
Yeah.
That.

It's funny how it never materialized.
At. All.

Now that the kids are in school and they know I won't have tag-a-longs, they are quick to ask me to run errands for them.

So now I spend all day in the car.
Every. Day.

Well, at least it seems like it!

So I get nothing done.
It's frustrating.

If you have emailed me and I haven't written back, please do not be mad. I will get back to you.
I will.
It's just that writing emails while driving is generally frowned upon.

The coming weeks don't look much more promising for extra time to blog or email, however.

God has been keeping me extra busy lately with a little side job.
Photography.
So fun! I love it!
And so time consuming.
Also not possible to do while driving.

Speaking of photography....

Looking for an early Christmas present? The Doors Of Israel photo is FINALLY available in size 16x24. That is currently the only size available for order, but more will be coming soon! The reason for that is because each size has to be completely redone from scratch. It isn't possible to just resize the entire image. Soooo.... It takes hours of work to make each one but I plan to work on an 11x14 size soon.

I ordered one to preview and it looks great! The colors are a bit richer than the sample below, so the sample doesn't do it justice. The final print has a larger amount of black edging on the sides and a tad bit more on the top. I can't wait to get it framed and on the wall. I just might have to do a Doors of New England to hang next to it.... Hmmmm.......


A large portion of the proceeds will go to Morning Star Foundation to help take care of the sweet babies who live there. Because of the cost of printing and the fact that this is a fundraiser for them, we ask for a minimum donation of $65 + $4 shipping (total $69) for this print. If you would like to give more, 100% of every dollar over $69 will be donated to Morning Star.

If you would like to order a Doors of Israel print in size 16x24, please leave a comment with your contact information or email me and let me know. I will send you an invoice via Pay-Pal and as soon as I receive your payment, I will order your print for you.

Also...if you order more than one print, you only need to pay once for shipping.

I had a feeling you were keeping yourself very busy with all your mommy duties and your photography gig. You are so darn talented.

I know just how you feel. I am "supposed" to have Mon and Tue each week to do whatever I want (run errands, visit with friends, catch up on blogging, go to the doctor for myself), but so far it has only worked that way 1 week out of the 8 weeks that school has officially been in session. Seriously depressing when I have my heart set on it each week and someone or another gets sick, or has a day off of school, or a doctor's appt.

On the plus side, in a couple of more years I will go back to work full time to pay for all this private school education and then I won't have "free time" any more to be filled with requests from other because, "well, you have free time after all." ;)

Hi Karin: MUST have these prints. My daughter has a door thing going on. She has door pics from Africa to South America. We've been waiting for yours! When do you think the smaller one will be available. I definitely want one of the 16X24. Would like a smaller too.
