An Award Gratefully Received

Happy Sunday. I'm usually technology free on this day of the week, but I need to catch up on something I have put off for a few weeks.

I have received the Stylish Blogger Award from Marlene at Marlene's Musings. Marlene is a very talented artist and a long-time bloggy friend. I hope you'll visit her blog. Her Sunday Sketches are charming!

To accept the award I am requested to tell 7 things about myself, so here goes:

1. I am a terrible procrastinator as evidenced by how late I am picking up my award.

2. I consider myself to be a "spiritual being that sometimes has human experiences" rather than the other way around.

3. I don't subscribe to cable TV.

4. I watch PBS more than any other network.

5. My favorite books/films/TV shows are mystery stories - with or without murder, but the less violence depicted the better. It's the logical discovery parts that I enjoy!

6. I've never met a fiber art/craft that I don't enjoy.

7. "I hate to go shopping, don't like the crowds or the frustration of trying to find what I want." (Yes, Marlene, I quote this one from you as you've stated it perfectly!)

Now I am requested to pass this on to (15) new blogs I follow. I regret I haven't added many new blogs recently, but will hightlight a few I really enjoy.

1. Karen of Photo Energy - Art That Captures You

2. Jim of Suldog even though he will most likely rake me over the coals ;-)

3. Diane of The Shutterbug Eye Photography

4. Julie of Julie Magers Soulen Photography

5. TECHKnitting

6. Deepak Chopra

7. Jenn of Random Lunacy

8. Cathy of Celtic Cat Photos

There are so many other worthy ones, I wish I could highligh them all.

I hope you find a new blog you will enjoy, or maybe an older one you haven't read recently!

Peace, Judi

Waiting for My Laptop

Last week my machine wouldn't boot and something was "burning" inside, and it wasn't love!

I took it in for repair; they said at least a week before they could even diagnose.

I hope to hear today what is actually wrong.

Peace to all,

Feature Friday– GottulaStudios on Etsy

Happy Friday!

Today’s featured shop is Gottula Studios, from Kansas City. Sharon offers fine art photographic prints and greeting cards; she is also a teammate of both Photographers of Etsy (POE) and the Female Photographers of Etsy (fPOE).

I couldn’t choose a favorite item, so here are a couple I hope you’ll enjoy.

The first is called Winter Cherries 6x9 print. This image is also available as a 2 card set.

If you’re enjoying these features, please visit the shops and send them some love!

Feature Friday - Keramos on Etsy

It’s Friday and time to feature another shop you may find interesting. Today we visit Keramos, from Athens, Ohio.

I immediately fell in love with these buttons, just the thing for someone who sews or knits clothing, or to give that old dress a new look. Also offered are handmade beads and bracelets.

I hope you can take a minute to check out this shop; maybe you’ll find something you love, too.

Peace, Judi

Project 365 for 2010 Completed

I did it! I completed a photo a day for the 365 days of 2010. Although I'm happy to be free of the pressure that "I must create a photo today", I do feel a bit of sadness as the project has ended.

I won't be doing a 365 in 2011, but don't rule it out forever (never say never.) Instead, I am going to go back and start processing/posting images from the days when I used film and some other digital images that have previously been ignored. I also plan to spend some time learning some photography related things which I missed doing during this past year.

If you care to view a slide show of my 365 images, you will find it below.

Peace, love, happiness, and good health to all in 2011, and beyond!
