PHOTOGRAPHY

I love photography!!

A busy little bee, that’s me! Part 2

Most Etsy sellers are singular artisans making and selling their work, one piece at a time. They aren’t pumping out large quintiles of assembly line products. That’s the attraction.

Still, it’s challenging to keep shops full after several sales, the purpose of this whole exercise

It’s a happy “problem” to have. The best part is you can give yourself permission to work, focused on just what you love.!

To iPhone or not to iPhone, do I jump into the fray?

The following week, when I heard a phone carrier sales guy say that they would be receiving a small shipment of iPhone 6eswas come in phones coming in on that very week. If you were in that line, you might be able to get one of those phones. Well I was going to get one of those phones! I immediately began to form a plan to ensure I got one. And by golly I was going be first in that line, make no mistake.

I flew out of bed when that alarm went off. Threw on some clothes, no coffee , no makeup or hair fixing, I don’t even know if I ran a comb through it , nothing. I just got in that csr and flew.The mob frenzy mentality had set in, and my “dignity”flew right out of the door. I was going to first in that line. I would need to be there at 4:30 AM, meaning getting up at about 3:45 A

A Whole Lot Of Flowers!

What I found in making these, was that each new project you begin,, no matter how many spools of thread, or amounts of fabric that you own, there will always be at least one or more necessary colors that you don’t have. I needed a huge variety in the shades of red, Thus began the great “thread quest’, I can’t fathom that out of my entire collection of thread, massive as it is, I couldn’t find the exact shades of red that I wanted. Unbelievable, and I will provide pictures to impress upon you just how unbelievable this is..When I say that I have a massive stock of thread , enough to open my own store, it is no exaggeration.

Have You Ever Been Scolded By A Hummer? And Thoughts of Spring

My hummer, whose feeder hangs from a suction cup attached to my kitchen window, and I have a reached a working relationship. All the details and duties have been ironed out to the satisfaction of all. I will provide food, immediately when it is needed. That’s the entire arrangement. It’s simple. I provide food instantly and reliably. If I fail to live up to my side of the agreement, I am subjected to a sound scolding.

I am very self conscious, even the thought of having a simple photo taken
throws me into goof ball mode.

How focus can be used to create so many interesting photos. So many possibilities are open, so many ways to approach this. The possibilities are endless, ,only limited by our imaginations. I thought this could really stretch us to see things from a different angle. You know, outside the box. Let creativity run amock!

I’m finally thinkin’ spring

I love spring, it’s always the beginnings of change that I most appreciate, spring and autumn.

In the not so distant past, I’d throw a spring garden tea party, my annual event. Being the kind of person that I am prone to be, it was always a large event. It was timed to show my garden at it’s best, roses at the peak of their first flush of bloom .Enjoying friends chatting, admiring the flowers with pretty tea cups and tiny sandwiches. It’s perfection. But…the hitch is always predicting the weather.
