A picture always tells a story

Some more of my favorites.


Amateur Photographer

I love taking pictures.


If it impacts me a certain way, I take a picture.

Some people may be annoyed with it.

I have a decent digital camera, but I seriously don’t know how to use it.

So many settings.

Buttons, filters…

I capture as many great things as I can on my phone.

I capture life, beauty, special moments and places.

Do I take too many photos?

I think I make so many moments become great memories.

I remember growing up and my parents would take pictures of birthdays and holidays and other odds and ends.

Then, they eventually got around to taking them to get developed. Only to find that so many, now printed pictures, were garbage.

I can capture a moment in time. Now.

This is a view I couldn’t pass up this evening.

I can draw!


I am a super creative person. Crafty and artistic.

I laughed recently as I was cleaning out the closet and reorganizing some boxes.

On any given day, I can pretty much guarantee that if you need or want to do some kind of project, I have the tools necessary to complete it.

Need a basket? I have some, with or without a handle?

Iron on letters, ribbon, artificial flowers, several types of adhesives…beads, buttons and yarn. To name a few.

I am literally a tiny craft store.

A lot of my stuff comes in handy when a makeshift repair needs made. Like a jewelry making ring to act as a zipper pull.

But, drawing is something I am only so so with.

I used to put little notes in my 9 year olds lunch bag.

But, that got boring. Recently, I began making drawings of some of their favorite characters.

I google pictures of them, and after my kiddos go to bed, I draw.

So now, it has become such a hit that I get special requests.

My preschooler doesn’t do lunch, but she has begun to make requests.

I don’t draw every night. Sometimes I am just too tired. I have also tried and failed with some.

There are way better artists out there.

But, I can only imagine the smiles on their faces when they see what I have drawn.

My oldest has started to hang them on the bulletin board in her room.

She loves Mario and a game called Five Nights at Freddies.

We all like Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon.

It’s fun to see what I can actually draw.

It is also super fun to do something special for my girls.
