Cutesy wootsy

Oh man, Do I LOVE what I'm doing!  I am meeting people near and far that keep showing and teaching me around this whole photography biz and how they roll.  I am constantly thinking of ideas and things to build on the business.  I haven't narrowed it down what I enjoy doing more...Kids, adults, families..who knows!  I'll roll with it and go from there!
So I took the girls and one of their friends out sunday for a mini shoot.  Not only was it good practice for me, but I got some really cute shots.  I've posted them on Facebook, and besides the compliments, Im getting more and more people asking about Casi's Flower band.  IF they only knew!!  I had an old black head band that I bought from Targets $1 bin(package of 6) and went to Dollar Tree and found a back of flower heads they put togehter for $1!  The day of the shoot, during lunch, i tried gluing the flower to the band.  Not working, esp since I was using tacky glue and not hot glue.  So my way smart mom in law, said, do you want a needle and thread?  Umm.. Yea!!!  So in like 2 minutes, i had the middle of the flower out, and glued each layer to each other, then I stitched away.  WHALLA!  I had a flower band!  Its on my youngest daaughters head(my oldest had a black one on that i bought at Dots).  So see, nothing original, no magic, just some last minute stress and a couple of good deals, and you too can have a cutesy wootsy flower band.  I am looking at finding a jewel or something to put in the middle of the flower to give it some bling, but there you have it.  Now go out and fill the world with cute flower bands!
