Kenilworth catalog

13 03 2020

I compiled this catalog of my best Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Garden images earlier this week. I get orders a few times a year from the park’s store for matted 5×7 prints and greeting cards. I wanted to show them an expanded gallery so they’ll have more images to choose from when ordering. I can’t wait to get back out there in mid-summer to capture new images!

Thanks to my friend Melissa for modeling for me as a nurse (and she actually is one!) for an article in the March/April 2020 issue of Hearing Life magazine, which I design for the Hearing Loss Association of America. The article is about the Safe ‘N Clear mask and how the inventor, Dr. Anne McIntosh, came up with the idea.

“Necessity and Invention: New Mom Turns Entrepreneur” is available to read as a free downloadable PDF here: https://www.hearingloss.org/magazines/2020-mar-apr

Spring (Chinese tongue drum)

7 02 2020

I traded in some of my accrued points (from selling lots of books) to 2nd and Charles (used books, music, and instruments chain) and bought this nifty Chinese tongue drum. It was love at first tap! This particular version came with a book of songs written in Chinese, with no instructions save for series of numbers, so I’m improvising. Here’s a little song I crafted this afternoon. I titled it, “Spring.” Such a meditative little instrument–I feel the relief from daily stress almost immediately! Click below to have a listen.

Craft Room: Necklaces for Nancy

30 12 2019

I made these two necklaces for my friend Nancy for her birthday (she’s a Christmas Eve baby). The first necklace has Unakite Jasper beads and copper accents. I’ll have to get back to you on what the stones are that I used in the second piece.
