I live in lovely Colorado Springs with my dog and my husband.

I find the act of creating things to be meditative in nature and often turn to polymer clay and jewelry making as ways of centering myself.  Of course, they’re also a great way of exploring my curiosity and experimenting.  Polymer clay is especially wonderful for trying new colors, shapes, and techniques.  There’s no such thing as a failure with polymer, just another learning experience.

When I’m out in the world, my camera often goes with me.  Macro photography is my favorite type because it allows me to examine the finer details of life.  Macro is all about the art of looking closely and all manner of overlooked beauty can be revealed through the end of a lens.

Thank you for stopping by my blog, I hope you’ll say hello in the comments.
