September truly flew by! It was not a great one for photos, but it was jam packed, again, with work travel that had me hitting Santa Barbara, Seattle, New York and LA. I am home for most of the month and have a few September highlights to share:

  • We bought a house in our favorite neighborhood! 
  • Wrapped another shoot in Santa Barbara with our crew.
  • Seahawks v 49-ers Game at Century Link field with thunder & lightening too.
  • Lots of good meals in NYC, Venice & Santa Barbara.
  • And of course DISNEYLAND- see previous post.

I found a house and I am moving!

Today’s instagram photo request is of something I made. I chose to highlight my dining room ‘wall art’ that I made last March, you can check out the details here

I love home architecture, decor and especially DIY projects. I highly suggest this project if you are looking to change up your current wall decor.

Something I made: DIY personalized framed prints. #janphotoaday (Taken with instagram)

This is my family portrait as of late.

For the past few weeks I have been trying to come up with something to put into some frames in my dining area, I call it area because it doesn’t have enough walls to make it a room. I had transitioned my framed butterflies to the living room back in October when I got B’s portrait from my friend Kent. All in all the wall has been bare for a while and I have had the frames sitting on the floor waiting for some inspiration.

Saturday morning I was determined to make something happen and to get those frames up. I was always leaning towards something simple and easy that I could do on my own. After racking my brain for a few minutes I remembered this post from Kirsten of Restored Style. That was all the inspiration I needed. I quickly got to work and wrote down some of my favorite cities, then onto favorite parks and favorite places to eat. It was a simple and a fun exercise, I am very happy with the end result. I encourage you to try this out if you have an empty frame or a bare wall.
