Fashion Friday: Shades of Gray Splatter

I see art everywhere and photographing it usually brings weird ‘what on earth is she taking a picture of’ looks from strangers and some family members.  :-)

Like when I took a snapshot of this pile of gray rocks that caught my eye and my brain said “these stones will make a great photo-graphic design on something fun”.

Friday evenings is usually when the graphic bug bites and in this instance, I wanted to create something unisex for couples for beach vacations. Shades of gray paint splatter fashion designs for him and her will appeal to couples who prefer fun graphics on the darker end of color choices. Let me know how I did!!!

Travel Tuesday: Winter landscape, Suðurland, Iceland

Celebrating my 61st, birthday in Iceland was puzzling to most of my Boston friends. They figured anyone living in New England would head to a tropical climate. This year I amazed myself by stepping outside my predicable Capricorn comfort zone by adapting a little bit of my wild and adventurous Aquarius side.

I’ve had the hardest time describing Iceland’s constantly changing winter weather which is why I love photography. However, I really need to wrap my brain around the appropriate words so folks can Google and find my work like this stunning sun peeking through winter clouds Icelandic greeting card. lol.

Tuesday Travel: Gullfoss Waterfalls, Iceland

Celebrating a winter birthday in New England is often with a prayer and good traveler’s insurance. Boston managed to miss the recent blizzard experienced in New York and Maryland so my brother and I, both celebrating birthdays in January, were able to fly off to, yes, Reykjavík, Iceland. Always on the alert for trip deals, TravelZoo’s package deal was very appealing especially as both of us expressed interest in visiting and crossing it off our destination “bucket lists”.

I always try to sign up for at least one all day city tour wherever I visit. The hotel concierge desk person recommended we reserve the eight hour Golden City Tour and Green Energy. Pictured here is me, in front of the absolutely stunning waterfall. Peeking through the snow squall was a beautiful tint of aqua blue water. I imagine it is a magnificent sight in the summer, however, it was still quite mesmerizing on a cold January morning. :-)

Shamrock Saturday

Designing Shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day is fun and the cake pops are moist and delicious. I celebrated my Dad’s 82nd birthday with a cute graphic, choosing vanilla filling with white frosting.  The order was completed amazingly fast and were shipped to my house, refrigerated and then brought them with me on the Megabus from Boston to Maryland. They were fantastically packaged and were a big hit after dinner.

This year I’ll ship them to my aunt’s house and possibly include matching paper plates and napkins.  :-)  Don’t you love Shamrocks and the fun of St. Patrick’s Day.

Sunday Sales Summary: Mardi Gras

Sunday Sales Summary started in November 2015 as a fun method of saying Thank you! and to see which type of artwork provide a visual experience for those visiting my online shops .
This week and on my birthday too, :-) the Mardi Gras tissue paper was a top seller. A woman from Biloxi, Mississippi purchased 20 sheets possibly for this year’s February 9th celebration. The design was created from a photo I took of an actual King Cake  and tweaking as I love to do,  it into a joyful , green, gold and purple Mardi Gras abstract pattern. Enjoy!

Fashion Friday: Red brick chevron jewelry

Back Bay Boston’s brick sidewalks are often several designs on the same block and sometimes side by side.  One morning I noticed a portion of the sidewalk had this great chevron pattern so I snap a quick photo knowing I would work on it later in the evening by adjusting the color and removing bits of growing greenery in the cracks .

I see art everywhere!  including simple red bricks magically transformed into trendy, eye catching, bright red brick chevron patterned jewelry. Men and women brick layers will appreciate this fabulous design on fashion accessories for him and especially for her featuring these cute heart shaped earrings and necklace.

Positively Roxbury, MA

Walking to the bus station each morning is so much nicer than riding a noisy, crowded bus. Each morning usually presents at least one thing that makes me smile. One day I spotted this brightly cheerful mural on a building on the corner of Warren Avenue and Harrison Avenue. I actually had to touch it to see if it was painted or a type of wall decal.

Roxbury, MA has really come a long way since I moved here in 1974. I enjoy the new buildings, upgrades, outdoor artwork and assortment of cultures. Sometimes I have to ask myself am I living in Roxbury or the South End. :-)
