You might remember I spent part of my birthday with PG. We hung out in her studio....talking all kinds of goodness........ all while taking photos....and editing on our phones.... It was the BEST. She graciously allowed me to borrow her scale that day....I've been in LOVE with it for years..... Here I am...finally taking some photos....

Isn't it a dream? Something extra photogenic about a vintage scale.... 

I LOVE playing with focus..... So fun!!! The tin scratches on the scale-front combined with the blur....made for some kinda-sorta bokeh.... Completely unexpected.....

Here's a closer shot.....

The Be Still class has been rocking the focus-play challenge....Well done guys!! Lovin all your beautiful images!

Thank you PG for sharing your lovely scale.... I highly recommend Prop Swapping!! 

Happy sigh.......


Let's dive into my recipe.... and then some news.....

Today's Image Recipe - applied to all photos.

I started in LR with an auto-tone. Next I applied my greymist preset. 

Next....into PS, where I added a layer of Waterfront 7 at soft light 100% opacity.

I finished the top and bottom one with a little type!! Easy peasy.....

LR eCourse News - Read's FREE

I've been working on this class for months.... Finally it's time to open registration.... 

I love Lightroom so much.... Seriously...  I can't imagine living without it.... It's been a game changer for me.. opening doors to so many possibilities..... 

I want everyone to love it....too.

There's one piece that can stop people in their tracks.... The LR Catalog.... It can be a little confusing....Often people get frustrated and give up on LR entirely.

This course is designed to move you past the catalog confusion.....and straight into loving Lightroom.

LR- Begin is all about Lightroom's catalog/librarary interface. Broken down in an easy to follow way.... I will share my simple catalog/library workflow.... Just enough info to keep it simple.

I'm so excited to share this!

Click HERE for more details.....and to register... It's completely FREE.


Happy TT.... Sweet friends.....Link away....

with gratitude.....forever...always....



One last shot....... My boppy flax.... love how delicate it is.... 


Happy Birthday to my Mama!! Love you!!

Happy Birthday...a day late to my sweet friend Prairie Girl as well.....  Love you too my friend... xo
