After taking a brake from my Finding Inspiration series I am back to posting.

There are benches along the walkway near Willard Beach here in South Portland.  Most are dedicated to someone from the community and have a quote or some piece of advice inscribed on them.  I have been photographing those most meaningful to me.  I think this is especially important to remember.

Last week I held a tie dye workshop that was super fun! We got some great results! I love the surprise aspect of the process.

I will be doing some Japanese tie dye known as Shibori with a couple of my after school classes soon. I have been researching methods and practicing and creating some samples.  I am planning to post some of the results as I go along. I found DYI Shibori which has been very helpful. Plus I have a couple of great books.

Come back soon and check out the results!

Happy New Year for web

I stumbled upon a website over the weekend. It asks the question “Can you be happy for 100 days in a row?” Naming our super busy schedules as the reason we don’t live in the moment and stop and enjoy our happiness as it is happening.

The challenge: “Every day submit a picture of what made you happy!”  Partispants post their photos on their favorite social media platform or via email for 100 days of what made them happy that day.  For the details go to www.100happydays.com.

I think I am going to give it a shot! I will be posting my pictures on my business Facebook Page. I will let you know how it goes.
