Late Night FIT...

Today just did not allow any Mommy Time:) We were all on Boy Time. And after I had the realization that school starts back in less than a month that was ok with me:) Sweet Sweaty Boys who bicker and fight and cuddle up together to watch 'iCarly' and who keep each other company and play Army men during bath time and who make my heart ache and swell until I think I can't possibly take it, not one more second and then I find it grows as large as it needs to be. It's full of fear for them, hope for them, love for them. Full of dreams and wants and wishes for them. Full of Sweet Sweaty Boys.

Carl, Lola and Helene FIT
I love the photo booth pictures. These three seem a little serious:) I wonder if they are brother and Sisters or just friends. I definitely think Lola and Helene are sisters because they look so much alike. This photo strip would make a very cool collage element.

Sweet Pea FIT

This is the same Sweet Girl from last week, only a little younger. I have many photos of her thorough her childhood. Her eyes are amazingly beautiful. I hope you love her as much as I do! Love, Jamie

"To a child's ear, "mother" is magic in any language."
~Arlene Benedict, For Mother with Love

"Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible."

"A mother is not a person to lean on but a person to make leaning unnecessary."
~Dorothy C. Fisher (1879-1958)

Being the Mother of 2 boys (all grown up) & 5 grandsons... I understand sweet sweaty boys. Aren't they GRAND!! I always thought I wanted a girl (& it would have been nice when she was little) but, then I see the teenage girls & KNEW... GOD IS GOOD! With boys they are just so honest & so out there... "Yeah I did it so kill me" No sneaking & lying & whinning around. Enjoy them while you can! They grow up so fast!

Hi Jamie,
I love your blog and all the vintage pics!
Sorry to be writing to you on the blog but you didn't post an email address.
I love your mother quotes. Send me your email...more to say, motherhood, Savannah, & photoshop! :)

Jamie - I love reading about your lovely boys, bless them! Thank you for all the wonderful FITS and quotes and just to say as well that your new blog background is totally FANTASTIC - well done!

Jan said...

Hi Jamie - thanks so much for visiting me and leaving such kind comments. You ask about Safmat...it comes in A4 sheets and is a transparent self-adhesive matt printing film. You print or stamp your images onto it and then peel off the transparent part from the paper backing sheet. When laid down and burnished it becomes almost invisible so all you can see is the design as if it was printed directly onto your background. Creates a bit of a digital effect (I still can't get get my head around Photoshop yet!!) It is manufactured by Letraset-I dont know if it is available in the US.
Keep up the fantastic work - I'm following you now 'cos I dont want to miss anything!

Hi Jamie! Just a quick fly by, or so I thought, to say Hi and check on the happenings in your house/blog. Your words about your boys made MY heart swell!

These are fantastic images. I know I will use the strip eventually so thank you in advance! And your piece below is hauntingly beautiful. Just beautiful! And I'm not going to even acknowledge you learning more photoshop - oh my gosh! I'm jealous!
