What do you think of the blackboard?

I will be posting a few new banners every week.

I have been making these little banners for a couple of weeks now and I have decided to put some in an Etsy shop. I have made some for gifts and just kept on going. They are fun to make and even more fun to give.

Positive affirmations are a great way to bring a positive energy into your home or office and I have been doing this for years. I try to find creative ways to write positive words and post them around the house. If you want peace, more faith, creativity, success, love, or anything else, this is a great start.

If you all like these maybe I can do a give away in the future. Maybe another scavenger hunt?

~Mt. Redoubt has decided to cool off, the levels are still higher than normal and the level continues at orange. AK Dave has some great shots, we bumped into him when we were at the beach watching.

~ I have been so busy this week, maybe a better word is distracted. The kids have been out for spring break and so I have been filling my time else where. We went to see Taken and it was good and intense.

~ I have been obsessed with making these little banners and can’t get enough. I have bought some vintage papers and have been caught up in creations. I love it when that happens.

~ Tonight there is another Sneak Attack on Etsy. I can’t wait to see another shop watch their sales go through the roof and not know what hit them. I love this kind of thing.

We have been watching this volcano (Mt. Redoubt) act up all day yesterday. I only live a block away from the bluff and so we take some hot cocoa, the camera, and watch it do its thing. We called some friends over who have just moved to Alaska to come down to the beach with us and watch it. This was my favorite shot of the day. I love how high the waves are crashing, the sunset, the volcano and B just taking it all in.

yvette_inufio

Yvette can compose the most beautiful photos filled with simple everyday items. Her use of light and textures is breathtakingly beautiful. She is truly an artist. If you are not familiar with her work, you need to check her out.

1. What do you shoot with?

Right now with a Nikon D90, but I have a Konica Minolta which I adore and two vintage cameras, one of them for the TTV shoots that I do sometimes.

2. What is your favorite photo on flickr? (one of yours and one other
photographer)

It was so much fun doing this with my boyfriend who had pose for me in many of my projects, that I would name this as one of my favorites…
There is so much meaning in this photograph, I really love the result.


Another photographer?

She’s awesome. The last photo that I recently add to my favorites is this one from her stream
Still winter... (by emiguez65)

3. What would be one tip for someone new to photography?
Find inspiration within, no matter what camera or lens you use, no matter the location or the model, what really matters is what you can see, the passion, the message, the essence. Details and the theory will be improving along the way.

4. If you had to choose between stills, macro, portrait, landscape,
what would you choose?

Macro and stills.

5. Who’s photography influenced you the most in the beginning stages of your own photography?
All the fabulous photographers that I had known on Flickr, with their photos, comments and flickr mails are still an influence.

6. Where do you get your greatest inspiration now?
I love being at home after work, taking care of my cats and my garden, going to the sea on Sunday mornings. My photos are the testimony of what I do, always trying to add some light, softness and poetry to my everyday life.

7. Who are your top five favorite photographers on flickr right now?
Ufff, they are so many talented photographers on Flick that for me, it’s really hard to pick just 5.

Taste
_____________________________________________________________
breakfast (by Leaca's Philosophy)
breakfast–This week my daughter helped out with breakfast. *shocked* She stayed home from school on monday after her long season of bball she said she needed a mental day.
lemon–I love lemon water and I can’t seem to get enough of it.
salad–I can get too many salads and not want to eat them for a while but I have been loving them lately. Recipes here, here, and here.

Sight
______________________________________________________________
Prints–I have been printing some of my images this week. I have been in kind of a slump lately and thought it would help. I shot these and after printing them off I fell in love with the image. One of my personal favorites. It is amazing how an image may not seem like much and then you print it and find a treasure. I am offering this one in my shop because I love it so much.

textures–I have been using a lot of these in my processing these days. I am just smitten with them. I love when people share.

jewelry
–I am not much of jewelry wearer, I wear a lot of silver, the same stuff all the time. I love this shop. Her work is so vintage-like and her pieces so unique.

Touch
_______________________________________________________________ down comforter--At the end of a cold day I melt into my bed, the feel of a down comforter warms me in no time at all

Hear

Sam Phillips–I just can’t get enough of her soulful lyrics. I think her album cover is the coolest, like her music was made for me.

#35 on my list can be semi-crossed off. Yay! I think I want different frames but I like seeing my stuff hanging on my walls just for the fact that it could be hanging on someones wall. I was surprised at how much frames cost but I was even more surprised how much framed art costs. Etsy is really a good deal; you can get an awesome piece of work for a low price, or better yet, you can frame your own work and save you even more.
