Planning a shrimp and bull roast πŸ€πŸ€πŸΊπŸΊ

Planning a bull roast is very hard work but we are getting there slowly. We wanted to raise money for charity because our close friend has a son who has CHD which is congenital heart defect. He will need several surgeries throughout his life and we wanted to give back the the group that helped them and provided support and resources for them during their journey. 

I am so glad we have several generous businesses that have donated so many great gifts for the bull roast to raise money for charity. Now we just have to sell more tickets to get our minimum amount of guests. 

Here are some pictures of the donations we got for the raffles and door prizes. 

I will take some gift cards and also add them to gift baskets and well as I will get a photo frame and add several gift cards to auction off.

Donations of baby hats πŸ‘’πŸŽ©πŸ‘Ά

I have started to make baby hats for the local hospital with a loom I purchased from walmart. I had a ton of yarn so why not make hats and donate them. One hospital couldn’t take any more donations so I started giving them to another hospital in Baltimore.
Here are some pics I took of the hats I made.

Photo shoot ideas for babiesπŸ“·πŸ“·

A co-worker just had a little baby boy and I am so excited to take some pictures of him since I am trying out different styles on my camera and on the photo editing software. It has been fun using the free software I have read about online.

I have several photography props to use on the photo shoot and just came across my large rubber duck photo prop that I will take with me on sat when I take some pictures of he baby.

I have been on Pinterest looking at ideas and I am sorry that I don’t have the names of the photographers who took these pics and I didn’t not take these pictures but I am using their ideas as my inspiration.

I figured that the picture above would be a cute idea since the babies dad works for the post office. What do u think? If mail bags weren’t so dirty with germs and who knows what else I would use the mail bag in the photo and put baby in that but that isn’t going to happen with dirty items.
I am still on Pinterest looking for more ideas but please feel free to give me more ideas u may have for the photo shoot I have on sat. Remember his dad is a mail man!

Remember I don’t remember where I got these pictures cause I was on so many websites so if u know where this image came from email me and I will give them credit. Thanks

More inspiration pics of photos I want to take soon with some clients

Donation Page

I need help by having a fundraiser I will be able to boost my hobby to a professional status. Please feel free to share on your blogs and Facebook pages.

I have taken a lot of pictures and have a canon rebel EOS t3 which isn’t a bad camera but to be able to take professional portraits I will have to upgrade to a better camera. I also am at a standstill at the moment due to a virus that attacked my computer. My computer was old and ran slow anyways but to be able to achieve my goals I will have to get a computer so that I can edit my photos and set up slide shows and email photos to clients.

I also want to be able to take the best photos of the pets at the local rescues and shelters so myself and the rescue can post on our sites to maximize adoptions and I will be doing this part all for free a way for me to give back to the animals. As u can see from all the pictures I have taken of Harley who at this point is not looking at my camera when he hears me pull it out of the bag lol.

Here is the fundraising link if u like my picturesque editing that I posted below then please do me a huge favor and share my link on your Facebook pages, blogs, email to a friend or family etc i appreciate any help I get. Thanks

Vintage and Shabby Chic Decor

I have seen so many cute displays using vintage items in alot of stores these days. It takes me back because I see things that I know my grandparents had in their home.

I love some of the modern uses people have for vintage and shabby chic items.
I create alot of crafts and gifts but along with that I also sell vintage and shabby chic items that I think are in great condition and that someone else may have a need for.

I have seen pictures milk glass items such as vases, planters, etc used in so many ways like business card holders, desk organizers, flowers, plants, succulents, paper clip holders, pen holders, a catch all in the foyer area for keys and spare change, in the laundry room to place anything anyone in your home leaves in the pockets, candy dishes and so much more.

I am sure u can come up with some creative ideas yourself for these items and would love for you to leave your comments on what u do with your vintage items. What colors do u like or would like to purchase?

Here are some pictures of items for sale in my etsy shop and as I mentioned in a previous post I have already marked down the prices of vintage and home decor items in my shop so stop on by and see what I have. I am making room for some new finds. http://www.etsy.com/shop/ahindle78
Also feel free to post my etsy shop like or my Facebook link to your pages as well. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Charm-City-Creative-Designs/214517511903785?ref=hl
