with a blink

and it's been nearly 3 months since I have created anything for me, or for the sake of creating for my spirit, other than taking many photos.  And although I am thankful that I have found photography a necessity, I need more.  The holidays, traveling to Florida, the holidays, then traveling to California has been a happy, yet hectic mess of do-mode, and I am needed life to slow down now, and focus on the simple life, taking photos, learning, and creating.  It's time to get my hands dirty and play.  I have been stuck in editing mode, but I am just ready to freely be and create, without thinking of proper technique and general know-how.
Happily, the girls spent a part of our weekend making recycled projects.  ...and the joy this brings me!

and I took some photos in the snow today. I love the look of a child, even an older child, enthralled in the moment. This moment is so pure, and simple.  How I wish all her moments where this way.  Please my love, remember these times.

I rarely take photos of Rose, aka Princess Fluffy Butt, but she looked so beautiful in the white snow.  This isn't really my style, but it's so classic and clean. She really is a lovely cat, aside from her attitude!

I linked this fluffy beauty here.  This is my edited version.  Oops, I didn't read the instructions well.

and unedited.  I guess I will do things my way this week, and read directions better next time.
