Pantone Institute announced their fashion color report for Spring 2017. A lively color inspired by nature called “Greenery” Pantone 15-0343. The yellow-green shade is the signature color they’ve chosen to express their take on current fashion design collections and trends. According to their report from September 2016, the 10 new colors impart “emotions and feelings that surround us in nature.” However, the most prevalent color in 2017 will be a blue, they’ve named, “Niagara” Pantone 17-4123.
Shades of blue and green will always be included on my jewelry design and graphic arts palette. I’ve been working with these amazing druzy stones for a while now. They sparkle with tiny natural crystals from yellows to blues and purples. I also admire the translucent blue-green color in the tiny round gemstone, Apatite. I predict the shades of “Niagara” will make a few appearances in my graphic design and jewelry projects again this year.

As the new year sets in, some of us are struggling. I can’t help but think about those I know who are dealing with a loss or a crisis, and how emotionally draining it can be.
After suffering from a few crises in my life, I have become more resilient. I’d like to share a story or two, but can’t, so I will only say, the path to resilience is obtainable.
I would like to share a few ideas:
• Being optimistic and expect the good things. Visualize what you want, instead of worrying about what your fears are, will help build resilience.
• Trusting your instincts in your ability to solve problems builds confidence and resilience
Another way to think about it is this quote by Bruce Lee.

The Lord’s Prayer is the Bible verse that we all know well.
This is a beautiful sample of the prayer in German on a wax form. My Oma gave it to me. Today, it is one of my treasured items along with many things
that make me smile and help me remember her.
My Oma, German for Grandma, always appreciated beautiful things like this embroidered
handkerchief. I wonder if she ever really used it. She probably just admired it, as I…

When we visited my parents for Christmas, I saw this “email from God” on the fridge.
I should have a copy on my fridge, so I got a quick shot of it. Then I thought, God helps those who help themselves, a value instilled in me early on. My path toward understanding how to put things in God’s hands is always evolving at my home, and in relationships at work. On an emotional level, this year, I hope to gain more emotional intelligence.
I saw this quote today, and it immediately resonated with me.
“I have not always chosen the safest path. I’ve made my mistakes, plenty of them. I sometimes jump too soon and fail to appreciate the consequences. But I’ve learned something important along the way: I’ve learned to heed the call of my heart. I’ve learned that the safest path is not always the best path and I’ve learned that the voice of fear is not always to be trusted.”

2016 was a very busy year for us. I worked at my day job, and attended classes for Event Planning, Design and Decor in the evenings. It was a fabulous experience. One evening, a guest speaker demonstrated her positive energy with a Powerpoint presentation, and shared this: Create an imagine/inspiration board to help achieve your goals. My take-away was, I need to get very organized in order to use my new skills in combination with graphic design.
This year I’ve photographed and posted my favorite subjects: boats and sunset reflections on the water, especially mirror images. My book of passwords has grown with more photos to post, and design competitions to enter. I find myself writing, yet another updated profile or an artist statement about my digital artwork, and what inspires me.
In 2017, I would like to build my portfolio with new digital art and experiment more with painting. My goal is to impart a consistent body of work. My focus will be to create graphics for special events, and design inspiring motifs/patterns for home goods, stationery, wall art and more.
So back to that revised profile.

As another year has flown by! I look forward to reading your posts on WordPress, making the next new year even better! Feel free to share!

Sometimes all we need is a break from our regular schedule to think about how to go about things, to figure out a problem, or put the pieces together. Sometimes the gap can be a source of inspiration to keep going.

There are moments when a song you’ve recently heard keeps repeating in your head for a few hours, or when it makes a bigger impression, perhaps days! Recently, my husband and step daughter, Brittaney danced to “Butterfly Kisses” on a her wedding day. After the wedding, this song was on my mind, so I decided to write a post about wedding music and share a few pictures and songs.
There's two things I know for sure: She was sent here from heaven and she's daddy's little girl. As I drop to my knees by her bed at night She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes and I thank god for all of the joy in my life Oh, but most of all For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer; sticking little white flowers all up in her hair; Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it's my first ride. I know the cake looks funny, Daddy, but I sure tried. Oh, with all that I've done wrong, I must have done something right To deserve a hug every morning And butterfly kisses at night.
My Dad and I talked about practicing a dance for my wedding day. After I thought about it, I figured it would be more about practicing how not to get too emotional. We danced to “I Loved Her First,” by Heartland
My husband and I danced to “Bless the Broken Road,” by Rascal Flats, and I still get choked up when I hear it.
Listen to all the lyrics when you research your music and have fun selecting the songs together! There are many beautiful first dance songs to choose from, and below are two lists with the most popular and classic.
According to Vouge.com, these are the top ten first dance songs from 2016.

This post is inspired by a passion for photographing sunsets, and H2O | The Daily Posts https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/h2o/
The beach at Glen Arbor was popular in August with amazing sunsets. Being here reminded me of the very first visits to Lake Michigan as a child with my Mom and Dad and sister, Laurie. I remember the rushing waves on the shore and feeling a little scared. On this evening, as my husband and I were walking slowly in the sand, heading back to the car– a drone out of no where–buzzed above our heads. I shot this photo to capture it, though very insignificant. At that moment, a little boy on the shoreline said, “Wow! Dad, can I have that for Christmas?” — there was immediate laughter. Hopefully, one day, he will reflect, feel nostalgic, and remember the sunset.

pictures and things
Visuals from my world
Finding the odd among the ordinary
Igniting the spark of lust, fanning the flames of love
