Foto Friday–Books

(It seems that all I’m coming up with these past few weeks has been Foto Friday posts.  I’ll get another post explosion soon I’m sure)

This theme made me think of my time spent at Mommy Retreats.  Every year, ladies from our old kinship (small group) from back in the day (like late 90’s, early 00’s) get together every spring for a Mommy Retreat.  I got to join the last two years and hope to attend every year that I’m not breastfeeding.  Since I’m not pregnant now, looks like I’m all ready to go next spring.

At this retreat, we bring whatever reading materials (and games and even recipe boxes to organize) we want to peruse during the weekend.  Last year’s retreat seemed to be a big reading weekend.  There were so many books that we had to get pictures of them all stacked up.

I added a Kim Klassen texture called Ugglove (I think) and then a Paint the Moon black and white action that I added a bit of the color back to. I love how the color turned out in this, but I’m not sure if this texture was the best choice.  I do like it, but if I had more time (always the case), I could have tried out more textures to find maybe a better one.

Until next time……


Have a great weekend!


  1. Looks great! See a couple titles in there I've been meaning to check out, too! :)

  2. I like the texture. I don't think I would change it. I think this would have looked neat in a sepia with a hint of color, too.
    Great shot and great edit.

  3. I like it too! As I look at my photos, using textures or doing edits, I think I should change it or I am not happy with it! It is just something we do, I suppose.

    Thanks for sharing,

  4. I love the picture. The texture you added made it look perfectly bookish :). Excited for you to attend the next retreat. Maybe you will be pregnant there!

  5. Look at all those books...a perfect weekend in the making! I don't think I've read any of those titles either.

  6. This is the cutest looking blog ever. i love it! :] xxx
