Taking Photos

I LOVE taking photos... of almost everything. If you read my previous post about the snow in NC, I was outside with a camera for like an hour lol.. there is just something about capturing those special moments! My favorite is nature inspired photos, I hide from the camera, but love being behind it. I love taking photos of nature, butterflies are great if you can catch them at the right time.. the sky is amazing on any day, but certain days are so much more beautiful than others.. and newly bloomed wild flower fields on the side of the road are even better.. I wanted to share some of my favorites with you.. I hope you enjoy them!!

I also started selling some of my photography at craft shows, and I am debating whether or not to sell it on etsy, offer it as postcards or note cards.. or just matte photos... something I am thinking about.. we'll see ...

Working on some new ideas

I have some exciting news coming in April, but I'll wait til then to tell everyone!!! I can't wait to share with you... :D

But First, if you haven't seen, I've been working with watch parts... SURE it's been done before, but no piece is EVER the same, so I thought I would give it a try!! I absolutely LOVE it, it's fun, interesting, trying to almost put a puzzle together, and I love the fact that not one piece created will ever look the same! I also love shopping for the parts, I have never been in so many antique stores in my life, and now I can't stay out of them... I have found so many new things to use, so look for those pieces to come as well! I think the idea of using something that has history, and you may never know where it originated, is just amazing, you are literally working with someones history, someones memories, it's not just sitting there in a box in an antique store, so I just think its a great way to recycle and resuse, and share!

Let me know what everyone thinks!! and thank you for visiting!

Yeah!!! FINALLY! So since I moved down here, 3 years ago, I've been waiting for snow.. I miss it terribly in NY... I love the idea of being in your house, watching the snow fall, or driving somewhere and seeing it on trees!!! It's so beautiful, I really do miss NY winter weather... So Sunday night we finally got snow, and a pretty good amount for down here.. I think by me, we got about 7" or more, a few towns over got 9"! So of course I took Dino (my dog) and we played in it, I believe he liked it quite a bit, he was running around like crazy.

So anyway I am extremely happy, even though its supposed to be 72 degrees on Saturday, and probably by tomorrow all the snow will be melted, but at least I took some good pictures and I actually saw snow, where I didn't have to drive two hours to see it in Boone!! Enjoy the NC snow pictures!
