Dear friends, here's the deal...I have just a few weeks of school left and I've got to get 'er done. I have some wonderful guest posts lined up for you here on the Sadie blog and I'm sure you'll enjoy them all. I just want you to know where I'll be for the next month and a bit...at my desk, in my studio, in front of  my computer, in a pile of trace paper, covered in marker. If it seems a bit quiet around here, rest assured, it's just temporary and summer adventures are on their way! And please keep checking back and leaving my lovely guest bloggers lots of comments! I'll be posting when I can and will be putting the Sadie shop into vacation mode for April and then having an exciting, fresh relaunch of all this fun stuff in May. I'm looking forward to photoshoots, making things, and having weekends again! Do you have summer plans yet?

These photos are from a late spring day in the Alberta Rockies. Taken with one of my favourite cameras, my Fed 5, an insanely heavy-bodied Russian rangefinder. Look at those colours and soft textures. I dream about these mountains.

  10. What is it about mountains that makes those of us who live near them fall so deep in love? I live in the shadow of the Grand Tetons in Idaho and, although we've only been here a couple of years, I think of them as "my" mountains. Whenever we see people stopped on the highway near our house taking pictures it makes me so proud that people love my mountains. Your photos are gorgeous!

    BTW, found you on Etsy Blog Team...
