Cell Phone and a Straw

More Experimenting


I want some colored filters. For now, my sunglasses will have to do.
Nice effect; I like this one. Sunglasses rule!
And this is a photo through a straw! Ever thought of doing that?

Saturday Morning Inspiration

I'm off to First Aid training this wonderful Saturday morning. Before going, I treated myself to some quiet time with my coffee, Artful Blogging magazine, and my computer (to look up the artful blogs).
I am so amazed and feel so blessed to have access to the wealth of creativity out there. Here are a couple of my top finds this morning:
Andrea Sher's blog
and Orly Avineri's blog

Enjoy your Saturday!

Powderhorn Art Fair

My friend Emily Floyd is an artist. She was at the Powderhorn Art Fair this year with a few of her friends from the Vine Arts Collective. Emily makes wonderful jewelry. Lately she's been making earrings out of recycled bicycle tubes. They are so cool, they almost make me want to get my ears pierced! Emily is working on getting her website up and running, but for now, she can be emailed at She will also be a part of the Seward Art Crawl this fall if you are a local Twin Citian.
