• New Totes!

     This new Society6 Product had me jumping with joy today when I saw the new changes in style.
    I absolutely LOVE these totes!
    They now come in 3 sizes- 13, 16 or 18 inches, so you have all kinds of flexibility.

    Quality crafted Tote Bags are hand sewn in America using durable, yet lightweight, poly poplin fabric. All seams and stress points are double stitched for durability. They are washable, feature original artwork on both sides and a sturdy 1" wide cotton webbing strap for comfortably carrying over your shoulder.

    The holiday shopping season is just around the corner you know. How great would these be as gifts? Or for yourself so you can tote all your gifts in!  They are reasonably priced at $18, $22 and $24. You can't beat that to have original art work that you can carry around with you.

    Here's just a small sampling of some I offer in my Society6 shop. 
    Check out the shop for many more.

  • 2014 Beach Calendar

    I told myself I wasn't going to spend all the time this year putting together these little 5x7 desk calendars, but here I am,  posting them in my Etsy shop.
    I had enough photos this year to put together 2 different themes so far, this is the Beach one.
    The pages are loose 5x7 in size, and the photo is a cute little 5x5.
    So the great thing is, when the month is done, or the year is done, just cut along the bottom edge of the photo cutting the calendar part away, and you have 12 small photos suitable for framing. Or hanging on the fridge, or displaying on a desk.

    It just so happens that Ikea makes the perfect frame, in either black or white. And they even come with a matte, so they look really nice done in a grouping.


    Here's all 12 months for you to see, and if you decide it would make a nice stocking stuffer, you can find it in my Etsy shop HERE.

  • Back to the ocean!

     Seems I can't let more than a few months pass before the bug hits me to plan another little getaway to the ocean. I was lucky enough to get 3 nights booked at one of my favorite places on the Washington coast- Long Beach. I love it there, and the bonus is, it's close enough to the Oregon border that you can pop down there for the day.
    3 beautiful days, wonderful weather, another photographer friend to come along, good food- what could be better?
    I have tons of photos of course, but will post just a few today.  More on a later post. The following quote says it all for me-

    “I couldn't imagine living in a state that didn't reach the ocean. It was a giant reset button. You could go to the edge of the land and see infinity and feel renewed.”
