feeling a little blue today–nothing really wrong, just blah.  so i’m posting a picture that totally makes me smile.  i can’t remember how many pictures we had to take before we finally got one with all four sisters up in the air.  wait, are we jumping on count of three, or right after three?  or someone walking behind us–hello!?  photo shoot in process!  ahh, good times.  feeling better already.

    Love it! Definately makes me smile! And is inspiration too, I have three sisters. Maybe we should all do a photo shoot together like this next time we are all together.

    That is a happy picture. There are four sisters in our family, too. Good times. Is it foggy this morning down on your section of the coast? It’s foggy up here and that always makes me a little blue for no good reason. Have another cup of coffee – extra hot. ~Heather

    I’m having the blues today, too.
    Looking at your jewelry helps, though 😉

  14. how funny, I’m having a blah day too, for no reason that I can pinpoint.

    I love this picture, but I love the back story even more! Thanks for the smile…..

    Your picture made me smile too. I first saw your jewlery, which of course I had to have, on Chrissie’s website – and I came across that because my sis-in-law goes to church with her. Then, I started reading your blog and I’m hooked; your posts always make me smile.

    And I bet you were just laughing your heads off till you finally got the right picture. Fun stuff, Lisa. Thanks so much for my necklace. So glad to have it back.. :)

    Reminds me of my own sisters. :)

    My day has been blah too, though a great deal of that can be attributed to a certain visiting Aunt Flo. 😛

  18. Chrissie says:

    Love you sis. a whole whole lot.

    Hi Lisa I just came over from Sarah’s (abeachcottage). What a beautiful blog and family you have. Your jewellery is sensational.
    Love that photo, maybe I should try and get my 4 grown up kids to do that for me to take a photo of.
    Love it.

    Such a happy, carefree photo! Here’s hoping tomorrow may bring you more sunshine and less blueness.

  21. Angie Kerr says:

    I love this photo. It is incredible. I am sorry that you are having a blah day. Some days are like that….but just keep looking forward to tomorrow, because I am sure that you will have a better day!

    I wanted to tell you that I see your work (jewelry) all over the web. Your jewelry is absolutely stunning. I am planning on purchasing several pieces for Christmas and wanted to pop over to say hi!

  22. Christie says:

    Ah, the beauty of a picture! You must have a ton to choose from on those “blah” days! I just come to your blog when I’m feeling that way! :-)

    You are very fortunately to have close-knit sisters! Though I don’t have biological silbings, I remember working with students on family life class (I was a teacher aide at that time.) The teacher suggested on a first day of Family Life Class to write a positive note about the person on the back of each student’s back. Then save and put in the student’s notebook. Whenever the student has a bad day (including mine), any of us can look and think about the good things about us. This certainly helped me a lot.

    Hope your day turns out nicely.

    Hi Lisa. What a great picture, made me smile too! I know how you feel, my 6 year old has Down Syndrome and sometimes I just have what I call “Down” days. Not really sure why…hard to pinpoint. It is nice to be able to talk and share with other Moms, it always helps me. I love your jewelry, by the way! Have one of my own and gave my best friend one for her B.Day, we both Lovee! !
