A Sweet New Texture to Try


on the front porch ~ textured with soft light.

Dear friends,

Happiest Friday. How are you? Oh my, what a few weeks...maybe months... it has been. So much full..... so much to tell you.

Where do I begin? 

Behind the Scenes is coming to an end. It's been such an awesome experience. Such a fab class to create... Collaborating with Xanthe has been so much fun!! If you are interested in joining us for the next round... registration for late August will be open soon. Stay tuned.

A few months ago I went to California to visit Myriam.... We also spent a fabulous evening with Tracey while I was there... It was awesome... Such an gift. I went to Myriams to help her a bit with photo editing....but it turned out to be so much bigger than that. (more on that soon hopefully) Anyhow, 3 days was not enough Myriam popped on a plane and came to Canada..... She was here for almost a week. was such a fabulous time. She is working on a lovely site.....  to open soon. I can't wait. You can check out her lovely welcome page HERE. So good.

Myriam's visit helped me to look around.....really stop, see and appreciate our beautiful open spaces... amazing light and long days. Since she left I've been out shooting more.... I realize that I need to take the time to really appreciate my life...... I've been so busy with 'this' I was beginning to forget all about 'that'. Thank you Myriam.

I know it's been a few weeks since I shared a texture with you all. I will make it up to you. I promise.... 

I do have a soft little number you can try today. I call it elevate.

Texture Lovin' Listers the link is coming your way in just a bit.

I wanted something subtle to go with this floral photo....and Elevate seemed to work beautifully at soft light blend mode. Just enough..... I also used it over the 4-square image above.... 

so soft & subtle - mouse over to see the before

Not on the list, click HERE to sign up and start receiving freebie textures today.

Okie doke.... I have some eCourse updates to come....I've been keeping a secret (sort of).... bursting to tell you more.... 'sigh' ....soon...very soon.....

I will also have the TT guest host submission guidelines ready this weekend... I will pop you an email when they are up. 

I best sign off... Ben awaits.... It's super hot here... really should have gone to the trail this morning.....I'm hoping we don't come face to face with the pond beaver today.... Yikes.... that was scary.... Thankfully Ben didn't get his nose bit off.... But it was close. 


So that's it for me.... Tell me, what's new with you? Any big weekend plans? I'd love to hear....

Have a beautiful weekend... back soon....

p.s. I'm hanging out at Shutter Sisters today. This month we are celebrating moments. Come share with us.

Ah...a week in Myriam's company...pure heaven, no? Did she read poetry to you...I would have been begging for her to do so. Good thing she did not come to my house! Love the texture and the image. Our life is settling down slowly after my daughters diabetes diagnosis. I feel as though I've been AWOl for a long time...oh, that's right..I have been! I am purposing to pick up my camera and actually get. out. and shoot. Something. Anything. I love this space and I love the Beyond class and I love you, know in that Sisterly way :D

Take care. I'm off to snap some pics!

Hi Kim,
I feel like my world is starting to return to some sense of normal although we don't know what our new normal will be yet.
My daughter got home from the hospital Wednesday after a serious obstruction after the c-section. She is doing so much better and Lil Sprout, who arrived way to early, is up to albs, 3 oz's so we are breathing here again. He's such a cutie. Can't wait to show him to you.
So I am catching up slowly but just love being here. Beyond Layers is wonderful and Reflections is just so jammed with are amazing and you hang with the nicest people...Thanks for your understanding and encouragement and especially the joy and love you spread. When I get a minute I'll tell you my mission statement for you....xoxo
