Project Alicia : WW: Restless and Uninspired

WW: Restless and Uninspired

You may have noticed a few changes around here. I decided to mix things up on a whim. Just trying to keep you on your toes. :)

I have been drooling over some amazing blogs. Then I checked out the price tag just for kicks... and nearly choked. So, I am left to my limited knowledge and budget.

You may remember this photo from a few weeks ago that my son took of me. Thought it was time to take the old camera for a spin. Don't think she works anymore, but she sure is pretty.

This photo was the driving force behind the face lift. I changed my button a while back, but I have a hard time fully committing. Probably why I am not a designer.

I'm actually feeling extremely uninspired at the moment. So, I thought a few changes may do a world of good.

Pics by yours truly are few and far between these days, so let me introduce you to my nephew, Josh Redmon.

He is a talented photographer and is on an expedition to visit and photograph the 120 Mormon temples in North and South America in a year. He has made his way to Palmyra, Manhattan, and Boston and is now en route to Maine.

This is a sampling of his work...

You can read more of his journey and see additional photos at Mountain of the Lord Tour.

If you have a meal or bed to offer, leave him a comment on his blog. He'd love it.

Oh, and before I forget I am guest posting over at Great Fun for Kids on all the things "Nobody Told Me" about motherhood (while Simoney is off on vaca). If you missed this the first time around, stop by and check out rare, old pregnancy pics of me as big as a house.

  16. What a beautiful group of photos! I love your new header too. I'm trying to come up with a different look for my blog too, but I'm feeling a lot like you...uninspired...so you're not alone :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I was admiring your new header before I scrolled down today! I esp like the old girl ;) your nephew has wonderful work, I wish him the best. I could never pay for an update or face lift, at my place either... it is only for play, not pay (that and brain exercise!) what template do you use? I like the all white simplicity. ~Faythe @ GMT~

  18. Your nephew's pictures are gorgeous! I especially love the temple shot at the bottom. Which temple is that? I love the picture of you, but it makes me sad for the antique cameras that were almost mine... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love the new look, especially since your little man took the photo of you! I went and read your guest post, beautiful words and I can relate to all of them! And I have to say, through all those photos you look like you're getting younger ;D

  20. The new look is great. Love all the vintage tape and the photo of you is so pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well, I LOVE your new blog look. Mine has been in need of one FOREVER... but I too am uninspired and so crazy with two little ones, and a move across country and work, that I haven't been able to be able to do anything to it. So... I really love this :)

    ReplyDelete

  31. I LOVE the new header. It looks so great! I know what you mean about the pricey blog designs. I have given up having someone else to do it. The problem I have is I have no time to work on mine. Horrible I know. Great pics your nephew took! Good luck on your inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Love the new look. Funny but there has been a major slump among all the bloggers I follow. Wonder if it is the change of season or all of us just a bit burned out?
    Your talent runs in the family I see.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think the new header and button are just wonderful.

  38. Helping children see the world through a camera lens is a great gift! My nieces & nephew all share a bit of an eye. So great to see that develop!

    ReplyDelete
  39. That's a beautiful photo of you and your camera -I think your new header and button are great. Although, and with not wanting to dismiss your current thoughts or not take in what you're feeling, I happen to think your blog and the design of it has always looked so professional and inspiring - as is your photography. Sorry you're in a slump at the moment. You must be mighty proud of your nephew - some really fantastic shots.

  40. I love your new header! You are so creative!

    Happy WW!
