  • You Capture: Black & White

    There is something about a black and white photo that just gets me. ?I love them. ?I have a wall of family photos and more than half of them are black and white. ?So this week we took our annual trip to the Sequim Lavender Festival. ?One of my favorite parts (other than standing in […]

  • Not a bag, but they are for sale

    I’ve had many a compliment on my photography over the years. ?Lord knows I take enough pictures. ?What you don’t know is that I’m not the greatest at taking people photos. ?People have this horrible knack of cheese smiling every time I put a camera in their face. ?My son being the worst culprit of […]

  • Another day, another bag

    I got a wild hair to start making bags again. Part of it had to do with my cousin Sarah coming to visit and her falling in love with this bag. She graduates from Mizzou this summer and I made her an orange version as a graduation gift. I figured, well since I have all […]

  • You Capture: Emotion

    So here is another out-of-the-box You Capture for you. ?Beth came up with emotion. ?I’m not the best at taking people pictures so I thought I would improvise. ?I know, I should use this opportunity to practice my people picture skills, but the best opportunity for emotion I had was me crying myself to sleep […]

  • You Capture: Nature

    Next to perspective this was just about the easiest thing for me to do. ?The majority of the photos I take are of flowers and buildings. ?Someday I’ll put together some slideshows of both. ?We are kind of between things on the flower scale in the Northwest, or at least in my garden. ?I have […]

  • You win some you lose some

    That I am not. ?I recently rediscovered an old favorite video game and am hooked (Sim Societies). ?Frankly I’d rather be building a totalitarian empire than writing this post. ?I don’t even have important things to tell you. I could tell you that we spent all day Saturday installing a drip/ spray irrigation system for […]

  • Rainbow Brite

    That was one of my favorite characters as a kid. ?Right after Punky Brewster. I don’t think of myself as a rainbows and sunshine kind of girl, but every so often I need the pick-me-up only all the colors mashed together can offer. ?I was very sick of looking at the drab mustard yellow that […]

  • You Capture: Letters

    I haven’t done a You Capture for a while. ?Frankly, I’ve been busy and keep forgetting to check out what the week’s theme is. ?A few weeks ago it was “rustic” and I put a sticky note on my monitor so I would remember to find something. ?That worked out well. ?I’m sure the only […]

  • That blog thing

    Oh right!? I have a blog.? I forgot about that old chestnut.? Actually, unlike 3 million Americans I have actual work.? The kind where I perform a service and people give me money.? The bonus is that I get to keep my clothes on… but I still do it in front of a computer.? Want […]
