Exhibit Update

Hello! A couple weeks ago I wrote about submitting some art to an upcoming, Spring, gallery exhibit at Rum River Art. (The link to that blog is HERE. ) Today, I’m just stopping by the blog to show off the piece that was accepted. 🙂 Also, I’ve actually pulled my camera out to start shooting…

Spring Gallery Show Entries

Hello again! I’m circling back around, a bit, to the theme of my last post. The whole realization that I haven’t really made any art, or used the camera as my hobby, since I picked it up for work (like a DECADE ago) was big for me. The bulk of that realization actually came after…

I’ll Work on It–All of It

Hello! It’s me…your cranky neighborhood friend, back at it. 😉 I apologize, again, for my annoyance with the folks needing to vent in my last blog post. I was being rude, and way too inwardly focused. Rarely, do I see something shared on Facebook that makes me reevaluate my own thoughts, but today I did….

I Hate the Term New Normal

I’m sitting here, this Friday evening–and, all I keep thinking is HOW is already Friday? This past week both flew by and inched along, somehow simultaneously. (This blog post was actually started on Sunday. I feel like that was just yesterday, also it feels like last year.) This week, we started distance learning. My teen…

Sean and Draken Get Married

I believe I have about 17 blog posts that I’ve written, or partially written, sitting in my draft folder currently. I come here, I have huge ideas, I write my little heart out, and then I doubt the entire thing–so, I don’t post it. It’s not so much writer’s block–it’s more of a posting block,…

Anoka Family Photography

Hey! I’m back with some photography today! All those dandelion recipes were fun–but, I figured I should pop in with some work stuff, too. 🙂 A beautiful backyard, full of blooming lilacs, was the catalyst for the the timing of this family photo session. It was really fun for me to swing by their home…

Shots from the Shop

I know I said my next blog was going to be all about all the boring, but yet semi-interesting, things I’ve been accomplishing in my yard (with the kiddos)–but, alas, it snowed, and then was cold, and then rained (a lot), and then I got sick; so, that blog can wait. (I don’t feel like…

Spring is Here–At Least at the Shop

Wow, guys. This weather is fierce. I’m sitting on the couch tonight–as a fresh, four inches of snow, blankets the ground outside. (And, as my dog snores up a heckuva storm of his own, might I add.) Tomorrow’s weather is looking like a roller coaster of a day–bring on some rain, some sleet, some ice…

Photos from Work

Hello! I’m just swinging through the blog tonight to show off a bit of what this past weekend held for my camera, and I. I had a pretty basic weekend when it came to shooting–but a busy one in the way of editing up some past projects. (Which I’m still not totally done with.) I…

Updates and Links

Tonight finds me on the couch with a boatload of editing up on my laptop screen, and the Golden Girls streaming on the tv screen. The dog is curled up next to me, snoring away; and, through all of this awesomeness, I’ve recently decided that my eyes are a bit too tired to keep the…
