Our Voyage

great lakes, traverse city,

It rained on our anniversary this year, but the rainbow was a gift. –We docked at Traverse City, Michigan – Clinch Marina in Grand Traverse Bay.

It takes time away from the every day work schedules to reflect. Time to think about how I’m leading my life and how I would like to feel like this, relaxed on vacation, and thinking about what I can do better. How can I be a better wife, be as creative as I can during the work week. I create more beaded jewelry on vacations than I do during a regular work week! My husband is very understanding and has valuable input to quality control. He also has a creative eye. If only we had more hours in the day to enjoy the fun stuff. Our fourth wedding anniversary has arrived today, and I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for us!

Connection Sensibility

Photography Class – Day Six

Connection: There are many ways to interpret this theme: from a gadget to a handshake, from a bridge to a gathering among friends. What’s yours?

Artistic Connection
I think most artists would express the word “connection” as stimuli they are bombarded with, making connections from one visual or idea to another. A sensibility or the ability to appreciate and respond to complex emotional or aesthetic influences.

Nature is incredibly amazing. The three druzy stones are my inspiration for the packaging graphics, a combination of the nautical and wedding concepts. I made the connection when adding the knotted cord to a photo shoot for my wedding jewelry packaging. Creating the cord as a graphic decorative element just seemed natural.

Thank you for reading and liking! YES liking and connecting here…
