Tip of the Day for Bloggers/Photographers:

A Point and Shoot Camera is STILL a Camera!!

You can still get some amazing shots with a point and shoot.

Case in point…these images were shot with a point and shoot with a zoom lens.

The rainy season is now upon us and I didn’t want to take the chance for the expensive equipment to get wet.
So what is a girl to do…bring her point and shoot right?!

Remember YOU are the one creating the photo…NOT the camera.

Hope you are having a great week!

P.S.  We are going to see Little Man in a few weeks! So you know who will be showing up here…very soon♥

June’s Birthstones

PEARL

pearls have been used for centuries around the world; They are the only gems from a living creature, and they require no additional polishing in order to reveal their beauty. Natural Pearls can be extremely expensive, but with the introduction of cultured pearls, there are many cheaper alternative now.

 ALEXANDRITE

Alexandrite has a lovely green color, and often changes color with incandescent light. It’s quite rare, so there are a lot of man made alternatives that mimic the same properties as the Alexandrite.

MOONSTONE

The third birthstone for June is the Moonstone. Moonstone often come in a variety of colors such as blue, champagne,green, peach etc. I just love the creamy color of the moonstone.

I did not realized that the month of June had 3 birthstones: Pearl, Alexandrite and moonstone. Did you know that June had multiple birthstones?

Artist Feature – The Alchemists Vessel

So, this week’s artist feature from the HAF forum is Alix from The Alchemists Vessel and the theme for this week is Vacation. Who doesn’t need a vacation?  So I have selected a few pieces that remind me of the sea. Anything that remind me of the sea make me think about a relaxing vacation at the beach. First, let’s start with this watch to remind you it’s time for a vacation 🙂

This Bracelet is just airy and elegant.


 I love this two tone bracelet. The contrast in colors is beautiful

and to finish it off, this elegant ring, just to make a statement.

Sedona: A reversible necklace

Today, I feature a necklace that I created a while back. I love the simplicity of it. In addition it is reversible. You can choose which side to wear depending on your mood. I just love the color of the magnesite disk. The necklace is listed here
So which side of the pendant do you prefer?
