What Mae West said …

Mae West would approve I’m sure.

All the ‘background technical updating’ has been completed for my photo journal. You’ll notice a bit of a change to the facade but the biggest changes occur in the background. I see a few of my links (on the widgets at the bottom) need some adjusting but I’ll need some time to figure those out. So yes, I’m photographing food yet again. What I really wanted to share with you is that I’m quite delighted with the artful postcards I’ve been receiving as a participant in Kat Sloma’s Liberate Your Art 2013. I’ll be doing a post towards the end of next week to show you the cards I received and tell you more about this interesting little swap.

Next week is the organizational meeting for the new book club I’ve joined — definitely looking forward to that. Looks like a fun and interesting group.

This morning, after we had coffee on our deck, I joined the Newcomer’s Friday walkers on a really beautiful walk along Craig Bay. Wow — great scenery, varied and engaging conversation, learned a few things from the biologist who was walking with us, and saw some rare lady slippers (wild forest plants).

The sun is shining, the sky has been a cloudless blue wonder all day, and I am headed into the backyard with my book to enjoy the sun.

Have an active weekend!

Hi, Diane. It’s looking good. I’ll be posting my postcards on the Blog Hop, too.

Hello Diane ~ Muffins look yummy! Did you receive one of my postcards from the LYA swap? Thanks for stopping by my blog. The original piece that I made my postcards from is on there. I’m joining in the POSTCARD BLOG HOP next week. Can’t wait to see everyone’s.

HAVE A GREAT DAY! It’s gorgeous out!

So Diane, I really think you should write a cookbook! And it should definitely include all your wonderful food photos!

I’m working on a new site. Creating a new look has been inspirational and challenging. Thank you for Mae West, her advice will be part of my planning as I move forward.

Oooh … these look so delicious. Love how the background disappears and only one muffin is in focus.
