Fledglings!




They have flown the nest.......Houston; we have lift off!!!
How much they have grown in just being 16 days old. The family is doing well.
Darcy and Elizabeth (look on older blogs to see them) are teaching them well. I can't wait to
see their progress in the next few days. Now that I am still recovering from surgery, I can afford the time to lay on my bed and watch them. How delightful they are....I'm so proud!

Colors of the Rainbow
















Back in 2001, a friend of mine gave me a SLR film called Agfa Ultra 100. I was at Family Camp and was trying out my macro lens for a camera that I just picked up at a garage sale. My friend told me about the high color saturation that this film had and recommended that I shoot flowers. What happened next was one of those rare moments of discovery that would set me on the path of a new and exciting creative outlet...........macro photography.
To really look at God's natural world up close and personal. Every caterpillar hair, every bug antennae, every sparkle of a delicate butterfly wing made me quiver with delight! I was bitten bad by the shutter-bug! Since that wonderful discovery, I have added 100's of images to my greeting card collection. Then in 2003, my images evolved...........and sparkled! By hand-glittering each flower petal, I was able to marry two of a gals favorite things (almost) FLOWERS & DIAMONDS; all in one little card!
For inquiries on purchasing cards, go to http://sparrowsongs.etsy.com/ and visit my store, if you see an image that you like, email me and I will gladly add it to the store.

Small Wonder


Meet one of the twins....11 days old now, almost a fledgling!
They are beginning to "peep" like mom and dad and
poke their wee heads
out if the nest to investigate their new world.

"...these are a few of my favorite things..."











"One should fill ones nest with delightful treasures, things that inspire you to dream and create".

My Studio










Here is where all the magic happens..........in the basement. Cool in summer and COLD in winter!!! I have been creating since I was 2 years old, when my mama said that I drew a perfect bunny with my crayons. I used to love to sharpen the metallic crayons when I was little to make fairy dust and to watch the teeny flakes sparkle.
My husband calls me "crow-girl" affectionately because our nest sparkles......I love sparkles! I can't wait to see how God is adorning my house in heaven....."Angels; more sparkle there....and more birds over there please" Wow!
I have been inspired to get more personal on my blog and
show you some of my treasures.
Eye candy, if you will.

Enjoy.
