I Want MORE for Christmas!

December 20, 2010
This weekend’s scripture really hit home for me. With Christmas just a few days away, many of us are making those last minute purchases. We’re made to believe that it isn’t Christmas unless we’re exchanging presents. As a child, I definitely remember looking forward to Christmas morning…to running downstairs to see what Santa brought me. I don’t think I was a particularly greedy kid (in comparison to my sister’s never-ending wish list), but I definitely enjoyed receiving gifts. Now that I’m married, I’m being asked by both my mother and...

Madeline Bea is an incredible artist….she inspires me. I’ve been following her work for a while and today I am joining her for this week’s Sunday Creative.

I’ll be sure to share more pictures soon, but I thought it would be appropriate to share one for Macro Friday. Don’t be surprised if all December macro images are Christmas related. I’m just saying…   Now you’re probably wondering who won the “Fairies in the Garden” 11×14 print giveaway. First, I want to thank everyone that entered. There were some amazing comments…some...
Scavenger Hunt Sunday

November 21, 2010
This week, I didn’t pick up my camera at all until Friday night. I spent most of my week going through my macros from last Sunday, editing one at a time. I’m not complaining at all…just the opposite. I have really enjoyed expressing my creative side through editing (and I hope you’ve enjoyed it too). I have fallen back in love with texture and just can’t seem to get enough (thank you Kim Klassen). I clearly love this side of photography and while I will continue to improve my portrait work (photographing people), I will always love still life...
