I want to start out by saying a big huge thank you to Vicki for hosting this blog party.
She is one of the sweetest people I know that I have never met in person.
Welcome to my little place in the blogosphere, I wasn't really sure where to start,
so I thought I would just start from the beginning.
Once upon a time . . .
I started a blog
in hopes of sharing and documenting a project
a photo a week for 52 weeks
the beginning of my photography journey
that turned into so much more
making friends, connecting with like minds
who also have a need to create
finding beauty and simplicity in nature
and in my everyday
photographs that help me express
how I feel about life
that sometimes words cannot
what I didn't expect
what I've discovered along the way
is my voice
in the written word through photographs
. . . they really are worth a thousand words
And this is me, Kim,
a 50 year old learner of life
photographer, and jewelry maker
who likes to garden
a wife, and mother of 2
my favorite place to be is at the beach
my favorite color is pink
(yes, that is pink in my hair)
I have also been having fun with digital art and adding textures to my photos. One of my favorite weekly link ups is on Fridays for Photo Art Friday.
And in the party spirit, I have a gift for you that I will give away on Feb. 1. I thought it would only be fitting to make a beach themed necklace. It's hand crocheted, with a non-tarnish craft wire and different types of coral, shell, and pearls and a toggle clasp in the back for easy on and off.
You can also find me on instagram at KIMATPICKINGPOPPIES and on my collaborative blog at Focusing on Life (you can find the link button on the sidebar at the top).
Another big thanks to Vicki at 2 Bags Full for putting together and hosting the party!
