‎SimplyCaptivatingPhotoChallenge‬ ~ Eyes

This Was the hardest one yet, I tried capturing my eyes. This was impossible for I work nights, which creates tired, blood shot eyes. So I worked on Amira's eyes. When I thought I wouldn't get a good picture. She surprised me again.

SimplyCaptivatingPhotoChallenge‬ ~ Color


Demonstrating my love for color by using coloring pages and gel pens. But, I always use a Black fine tip marker to outline the project to add that extra zip to the keep my lines clear. And How can I not express myself without using my favorite image the Butterfly. 

To demonstrate using gel pens I used multiple metallic gel pens to make each individual butterfly unique.  Making each upper and lower wings in complementing colors, to give the butterfly an individual appeal that I can used later to make a card of any occasion.

Kittys Easter Day in the Sun

I like to show off my Kitty Amira, she is just the love of My husband and myself. We haven't been blessed with children at this time in our life. But, not all is disappointing. We got blessed with a cat that gives us great joy. Now she is just amazing, with a complimenting personality to being a ham for the camera. Maybe we just narrate her feelings, like a movie with the sound off. But, we have learned to give her freedom, Love and then of course attention, really she gets a lot of that. Greeting us every mourning from work, or her acknowledging her disappointment when we leave to work. I can't even remember those days, when she wasn't part of blessing our lives with her sunshine. Now, myself I am not interested in taking photos of self. But, Amira shares the love of photo taking as my husband love the camera. He is very photogenic and not afraid of a little attention from the camera pointing his way. In the other hand, If I didn't put the polishing on the blank canvas of my face, or put color to my cheeks, I be the first person to shy from the lens pointing my way. On a good day I perhaps will smile and say cheese. Really, can't imagine not taking photos of all things around me, to capture that perfect moment to remember. So, with all the settings just perfect, from the day being at it's most beautiful back drop. It's was time to pull out the camera a make a great day of it. Let's show off the pictures that captured my heart, that made me laugh, and inspired me to share with you, That Easter mourning of May 2014.

First off, Amira was enjoying watching the birds and couldn't wait to climb a tree to catch one of those kitty delicious delicacies that she unfortunately disappointed that she didn't catch. As you can see, she is very camouflaged by her coat almost matching the landscape of the tree.
As  her human mommy, I feared that she was going to get stuck if she would climb higher on the limbs that looked so fragile. I really had to think quick to grab the camera to remember her first climb for my moments to remember. Also how am I going to get her down. Then I grab an egg filled it with some cat treats. It became a game and an humorous moments. As she now no longer is interested in the birds flying by. Her attention gets easy distracted by this new found object of curiosity, filled with smells of tantalizing treats that she wanted to investigate. Intrigued by it's oddity, color, smells and desire to retrieve the treasure. Kept her entertain her as well as our laughter that keep us glued to her. Until we joined in the fun with pictures with her.

As an added Picture
Humorous:  Amira laying Easter Eggs.
Serious:Amira Protecting Her Easter Treasure
Funny: Dinner was Delicious
Amira enjoyed the tree right up to the sunset of the evening. Playing, staring into the sunset, until the day came to a close and of course she came down all by herself as we Said our farewells to the day, good night to the Easter day. [Below Husband and Wife ] Enjoying the Easter day with Amira.

Precious are the Few Moments shared

Precious are the Few Moments that I got to share a photo that was posted from my Facebook Friend. She woke up to the beauty this mourning. This captured moment with the smell of her blooming Lilac Bush. Behold as you can see a beautiful Butterfly spreading her wings far and wide. With stunning features of symmetry in her radiant yellow wings. Enjoying the sweet nectar of her Lilac bush in full bloom. this is what I am  missing working through the night and sleeping all day. The Brilliance of the sun waking up nature windows to enjoying the frolic of the sounds of the secret life of the mourning that I sleep away. Oh how I miss the mourning birds chirping and greeting the day, With the smell of fresh mourning air. 
As I reflect back, it's doesn't seem so long ago. But, life passes me by so quickly, as the few moments shared by any beautiful moment. Really, was glad that I woke up today and got a glimpse of this photo and asked if I could share it with all my new friends in the blogging world. Couldn't tell you how glad it made me feel, when she said sure Dawn. This memory will last me a life time in my heart, of the blessings I get when I see the Majestic butterfly in its own habitat resting, floating, and even the changing from it's cocoon of slumber. Waiting it's precious time of transformation until it will soon one day be among us, as a new creature to share it's beauty and delicate fragile form.

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to stop and see the world and all it's glory. And share a Precious Moment with some one.

This review is from: 4M Recycled Paper Beads Kit (Toy)
I am an adult crafting lover, This really made my life easier and able to accomplish my task with ease.

FANTASTIC! A Paper Bead Makers Dream Come True.,
April 5, 2013
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: 4M Recycled Paper Beads Kit (Toy)
I have taught paper bead making classes and I really recommended this product.

First off it is a little difficult to get the hang of but once you can do it you can make paper beads that look perfect and turn them out soo fast it is hard to believe! Much better than what I had been doing for years with a wooden skewer or toothpick.

The thickness of the bead you make depends on how long and wide the paper strip you feed to the device is. So I must disagree with the above reviews saying the beads this makes are too small. You pick the size by how you cut your paper.

This is made of really strong, heavy duty plastic. I think it will last forever for me.

My only problem is figuring out how to glaze the beads afterwards since I have to take them off the device to do it.

Overall this is still a 5 star, A++ Product! I LOVE IT!

(I recommend a paper cutter to go with this so paper strips can be cut much faster and more accurately.)
