I’m releasing my first full kit. This is PERSONAL USE ONLY. A big thank you to the PixelScrapper patron who requested a martial arts kit, as that was a fantastic idea! There are a ton[…]
Some of the girls at PixelScrapper were grumbling about the lack of good templates for photo-heavy double page spreads, especially ones that don’t stick the photos in a grid. So I grabbed some shapes and[…]
The PixelScrapper April 2015 Blog Train is out, and this month’s palette is so bright you can’t help but smile. Lots of blues in shades from day and night summer skies and tropical beaches, with[…]
We’ve had a rotten cold snap here, even having days we didn’t get above 15F (roughly -10C). Snowfall, sleet, ice pellets, cold rain, wind chills low enough to have to worry about frostbite if you’re[…]
These are a few of the photos I shot this February. Each is linked to its individual page.
The votes are in, and April’s PixelScrapper Blog Train is going to be using a bright and cheerful palette. It’s already inspired me to get a couple of scrapbooking papers made for the train. The[…]
Site rebuilt, original posts restored. There may be a few bits left to clean up like tweaking font colors in the sidebars and restoring the social logins, but it’s mostly back to where it was[…]
So I managed to mess up my database and am having to rebuild the site… :p It’ll probably take me a few days, so please bear with me.
Those of you who know me well will know I’ve been doing some scrapbooking since forever, and have made the shift to digital scrapbooking in the last several years for reasons of portability and economy.[…]
Shortly after I posted that series in August, I ended up in the ER due to a medical issue, spent a couple of months in pain before having surgery to correct it before it did[…]
This is a new edit of a capture that was something I’d considered too noisy to ever be usable before. It did lose a fair bit of detail in the noise removal, but that left[…]
Big and bright, this simple but showy bloom begged to be captured and preserved, a breath of summer for those dark winter days that will be coming all too soon.
This one is a re-edit of an old shot; both my editing skills and the software have come a long way since I first shot this image, and it was worth taking a new crack[…]
I was struck by the way these two were stuck together; it’s almost as if one has a protective arm around the other.
I’ve walked past this spot several times, but the texture of this slate caught my eye on this trip. It’s a lovely reminder to me to appreciate the details all around me, every day, and[…]
I’ve always loved sunrises, and this one was especially gorgeous, with the clouds turning the fiery orange of coals given a fresh burst of oxygen. I’m tempted to call up the lab and put a[…]
Just a simple red rosebud today, but it’s finally getting posted now that the health issues are mostly sorted out. 😀
Health issues and transportation challenges limited shooting for a while, but I’ve moved and am now in an area where there’s a lot of beauty within a short walk, so there will be more images[…]
Water lilies and sunshine always make me think of summer, even on the darkest winter day. It’s that little bit of cheer to get through the long nights, the cold, the rain and snow, just[…]
Pixxy and I did several shoots, and it was really hectic for a while getting them all edited as I got a chance to shoot some advertising images. Now that things have slowed down a[…]
