Gummy Bears Valentine

valentinebears 18

I know. Valentine’s Day is this Thursday and I’m just now posting about it. I actually made these last week and wanted to post these early but life got in the way and we had a super busy weekend. Oh well. If you are still looking for Valentine’s idea, here is what I am doing for my girls this year. Nathan bought me a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas and I’ve been playing around with it. I love how cool it is and all the things I can do with it.

So this year I decided to use my Silhouette and cut out some love bears. Then on the back of the bears I just wrote, “You are a BEARY good friend!” I had the girls write their friends’ names at the top and their names on the bottom. I filled little zip bags with gummy bears. Simple and easy to do. If you want to do something similar, you can grab an image of a bear or cut out your own bear pattern and do the same. Or there is also the Valentine’s I did last year with bubbles that is a free printable here – Bubbles Valentine’s Day Card Printable.

Instagram: Aperture vs. Lightroom


I am switching over from Apple’s Aperture over to the Adobe Lightroom. I am fed up with Aperture. I know it does a lot of the same thing as Lightroom, but Aperture has crashed on me so many times. And there are bugs within the program. It’s ridiculous. The problem is I have over 43,000 pictures. It’s going to be an extremely long process transferring over to Lightroom. But I am kind of excited to figure out a new workflow, edit and delete a lot of pictures (one thing Aperture wasn’t letting me do, a bug), and start fresh organizing my photos. Lightroom is pretty awesome so far. I am learning a lot about it and liking what I am learning. Wish me luck!
