I have signed up for your newsletter.


I posted your give-a-way on the sidebar of my blog.


I love taking pictures of food (oddly ....) I often take pictures of the beautiful vegan meals we create. Of course I take family and travel photos, and pictures of athletes as well. But the food thing is odd ....
BTW I shared a link on facebook!

I like to take photos of everything! I do a lot of things in my spare time but am currently obsessed with doing mixed media journals and memory albums.

Woohoo! I've signed up for your newsletter. Wish I had known about you when I still lived in the Portland metro area...


I signed up for the newsletter. Lately I have such a desire to photograph all the autumn trees here in Surrey B.C. the plethora of color makes me high on life! Every year it's the same I love Fall!! I mostly like to take photos of people, animals, art and anything colorful!!

I love taking pictures of shoes! They tell a whole story all by themselves. ;) My family thinks it's weird but I can't help it! I just gotta! And I've been eyeing your clock for a long while now. It's so awesome! Love it! :)

I had to share it on fb too. ;o) Couldn't resist!

I love to take photos of nature! Birds are my favorite! SMILE!


My iPhone takes really good pictures and is always with me. I mainly photograph nature. But any interesting pattern or texture that is manmade would interest me too. I am art obsessed so my "me time" is spent creatively. I can always escape when drawing in my sketchbook.

I really enjoy the spirit of your art, Michelle! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.


I shared your giveaway on my FB page.
