Behind the scenes



Hi. My name is Annette. I am a blogger, writer, crochet artist, designer, photographer, model, marketing manager, art director, stylist, customer service agent, business owner, book keeper, shop owner...

Not really but when being a blogger you actually are all this. At least if your blog is a small business to run, like mine. I model my own creations. My adorable daughters help me during the photo shoot. We goof around and happy me get the chance to catch some really nice pictures of my girls as well. It is good fun being a blogger/everything else included. Stressful at times. It is hard to do it all. But it is also very rewarding to be in charge. To do it my way.

We made this photo shoot a couple of days ago. It was for my latest design, a cozy and chunky scarf. I call it Wilma's Scarf. The pictures turned out great I have to say.

She is a real talent behind the lens, my dear Nelly Bo. Me, I'm not the most confident model but with help from a silly and funny Emmy Bo, I tend to relax and things turn out okay. We are a good team and I'm blessed to have my little helpers in my business. Pattern for this scarf will be released any day now.

PS 2: Face The Fear - Showing myself on the blog and not apologize for wrinkles and imperfections but embrace and be proud as these pictures are awesome. :)

  9. You want so much for your children, and it is a lot of pressure to teach and watch over them. As a mom--- we have so many stresses to get things done & have everything "perfect". I am now a brand new Grandma & I figured out to go with the flow. I am not perfect. I love my kids & I want them to have fun. I have declared this year as "no pressure". Things will happen as they come along & I am going to let them just happen!! Last year was tough on my family---I lost both parents. Family is most important. I have my older brother living with me. He was so stressed through their deaths. I am trying to make life as stress free so he can calm down. He is handicapped ( mainly mental) & he has shown me what is most important in life right now. Enjoy your daughters as they grow & become young women. They are in your heart for your lifetime & you are doing a grand job of raising them!!
