2011 was a fantastic year with a lot of success, fun trips, and the ability to spend time with friends and family. Adam and I are so blessed with everything that has happened personally, financially and professionally this past year. Below are some of my favorites from 2011. It was fun to look back at […

We were in Illinois visiting my family over the Thanksgiving holiday so we kicked off the “Christmas season” there. I love that shot of Desh and Veda (my family’s cockapoo) because they’re both looking in different directions–and not even at me! We were able to spend the Christmas

Today’s CITY GUIDE post is brought to you by Steven Stevens of Bend, Oregon. Enjoy! Bend, Oregon is very local. Everything about it screams small local community but with a population of around 80,000 people it is anything but small. Bend is so local and loves everything about small business they even coming

I love Christmas. I love the traditions, the memories it brings about, all the great food, giving gifts, and seeing family. If you celebrate Christmas, I hope that you have a wonderful time this weekend and I’ll be back to blogging next Tuesday with a new One Day series feature, a film/iPhone/digital comp

Today’s CITY GUIDE post is brought to you by Tom Summerfield of Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Enjoy! Rotterdam in The Netherlands often gets overlooked by travelers who tend to frequent Amsterdam instead and then move straight on to another country. I would just like to say that although Amsterdam is wonder

Thanks to Janine Aquino, proprietor of Camelot Cellars, I’m able to share this amazing holiday wine guide! Here are some other tips and wine advice from Janine: If you like a Cabernet Sauvignon, try an Italian Amarone instead. Lots of flavor with a slight sweetness, almost raisin like. If you like the

I got my December Birchbox last week and over the weekend, I finally got a chance to use the products and compile my review! First of all, I was really excited to see that they are donating 100% of all full-size sales to Baby Buggy (with a guaranteed contribution of $25,000). Okay, onto what’s inside: [&h

I was planning on reviewing my December Birchbox today but I wanted to actually USE all the products so that I could contribute to the review other than listing what’s inside. Instead, I thought I’d share some of my current favorite products. For me, a recommendation goes a long way. If a close frie

If you’re interested in collaborating on a blog post here on Show + Tell, I’d love to have you! My three current series are: One Day (wedding series), City Guides (share what you love about your city/town) and MEET (interviews with creatives). I’m also always up for promoting small shops and a

Download your set of 4 holiday gift tags here! I pretty much never want to spend money on wrapping paper, bows, or tags so I figured if you felt the same, you could download this PDF, print and cut them out a few minutes before the family or kiddos open their presents. Enjoy!

MEET Liz. I’ve been a longtime fan of Liz’s blog and I am so excited to feature her in the MEET series. She has lovely taste, shares such amazing finds, and truly inspires me to be a better blogger! Here’s a little more information about Liz pulled from her blog: Liz Franco is a [

Whether it’s analog, digital or iPhone photography…I’ve been shooting in “color” a lot lately. I’d love to create a seasonal set with some Kodak Ektar 100 film based on color. Now only if there was more daylight throughout the day. Maybe it’s because I’m shooting

We recently wrapped up a project for Betty’s Columbus 10th Anniversary where I was able to work with some AMAZINGLY talented people. Because of so many peoples’ effort, talents, and generosity we created this amazing calendar. I recently realized that I don’t post a lot about design here on my

I’m happy to announce that Jon Schelander-Pugh is the winner of the November Photo Challenge! Congrats, Jon! I thought I would share a few words from our judge, Dabito, about his choice: My oh my was it tough to choose. Well, my favorite is definitely from Jon Week 4. I love the quiet, fleeting moment of

Life has been busy. Last night I literally said, “I NEED MORE HOURS IN THE DAY!” and I even woke up with my alarm. What the heck? The great thing is that I’ve been trying to be more balanced. I’ve been making time to work out (until I got sick for a whole week!), seeing […]

Ugly Christmas sweaters are always in high demand this time of the year. They itch, hold in your stinky sweat, and don’t look THAT great on you (just being honest). What to do? That’s where Vardagen comes in! Vardagen is a clothing company in Indianapolis that specializes in design and hand-printed

It’s easy in the “blog world” to get overwhelmed or put off by the amount of materialistic posts. I never want my readers to feel like that but I DO love sharing deals, fun shops, and supporting companies that I trust. I hate malls but I do love to go shopping. Adam and I budget […]

Some other shots from my roll of Kodak Ektar 100. I love the top picture of my grandpa and the bottom picture of Adam. I know some handsome men. You can see more on Flickr here.
