Hey guys! I just finished with a shoot with my nephew for his first year photos. He turns one in July! :)

I thought I would drop in and tell you that I have some new items in the shop#mce_temp_url#.

Like this ribbon headband…

this rainbow button headband…

this pom pom headband…

this crocheted single-color button headband…

… and this crocheted multi-color button headband.

We also have other stuff like…

… photo prints (in 5×7 and 8×10)…

… framed prints

… and jewelry. :)

So, go on over to the shop and see if there is something for you. I will take custom orders and work on ideas with you. All you have to do is email me at thesundaycollective[at]gmail[dot]com with questions or suggestions. Thanks for your support! To show you a special thanks, I will be including a little something extra for everyone who orders before the first. :)

Alright, I am off to edit tons of photos. Be back soon!

Is the title clear enough on this week’s prompt? I hope so. Next week, I will post photos for next week’s prompt as well as this week’s. Yes, two prompts! So, you get to take photos for both and submit them by next Wednesday. Yay! :)

I made the decision to postpone because I have declared this week “Family week” for me. I have been trying to gain perspective this week and remind myself what is really important to me. I knew the best way to do this is to spend time with those people dearest in my life. I love them very much and am thankful for them. :)

It has been a nice break. For the first time in… I don’t even know how long, I have been able to relax and not worry about a job. I mean, I still need money. I should probably be stressing out a little more than I am, but I don’t want to just yet. :)

I think I have decided to really take this time as an opportunity to work on my own. Try to expand my photography and turn it into a business, instead of just a hobby. I also want to really work hard on making my etsy shop as great as I can. I definitely can’t do it on my own, of course. I need your help. Your support, features, purchases, booking of shoots, encouragement… It all helps and means so very much to me. Thank you to all of you who have helped me in ways you could so far. And thank you to everyone who will. :)

I plan on doing some work the next few days so that I can add new items to the shop. I plan on adding some baby and children headbands, possibly new prints, and hopefully some necklaces. Any suggestions or ideas for items you would like to see added? :)

Alright, I am off to spend the rest of the evening with my sister and boyfriend. We are watching Sigur Ros’ Heima DVD. It’s so beautiful! I love you guys. Have a great night.

P.S. Please check out my lovely friend’s giveaway on her blog. Tonight is the last chance to enter. She is posting the winner tomorrow! :)

Here are some things that happened this week:

Picnics in the park with new-ish friends and documenting it. We took photos of each other taking photos of each other. It’s how memories are made.

Road trips to Joplin for a family celebration. Dancing in the car to good music. Yes, I car dance.

New inside jokes with the sisters. :)))

I made some of the cutest headbands I have ever crafted. :)

I marked everything down in the shop except some photo prints and art. Go check it out! I want to get rid of everything in it to start adding new items!

More photo shoots for AVENEU. LOTS of shooting opportunities for me. :-D

New haaaaaaaaaaaair!

I took photos of my friend Paris and her brother for a Mothers’ Day gift for their mom.

Little Sophia was incredibly fun to photograph and make headbands for! I made five for her as a gift to her mommy. :)

Well, that is all the photos I have for this week. I am surprised I have any with as busy as this last week has been!

This was my last week working in the localĀ RVA shop so I will be on the hunt for other means of making money this next week. Wish me luck and/or pray for me because I have a feeling this next month will be another really hard one. However, we will press on, like we always do, and keep in mind how wonderful God has been to us. :)

I am looking forward to being able to try to accomplish some of the items on my list as well over the next few days. What does your week have in store for you?

love, scout

I just spent the last hour or so marking down everything (except photo prints and art) in our Etsy shop! Please go check it out! I even marked a headband down to $3. :)

Let me know if you have any questions. I just want to clean out the shop a bit to make room for new items. I am really curious… is there anything you would want to see us add in the shop?

Thanks a bunch, lovelies!

Hey, friends! I will be back later. I just wanted to stop by really quick to tell you to go check out my pretty friend’s etsy shop.

She just updated yesterday with new lovelies and they are going pretty quickly. She is so talented and I am proud to say she likes me enough to be my friend. :)

Here are some of the items you can find there:

If you haven’t already stopped by, do it now! You won’t be disappointed. Oh yeah. She also has these things:




Alright, kids, I am getting back to work. My weekly fortune and a few other things are coming tonight. Check back! In the meantime, enjoy your Saturday!! :)
