What’s Landing On My Head

As I mentioned in my last post, Looking Up, I spent a fair amount of time while wandering around the Fullerton Arboretum, looking up. This proved to be particularly true after I wandered off the path to better see what creature was scurrying about, and had something smallish land on my head. My attention was […]

Looking Up, At The Arboretum

After reviewing all the pictures I took last week at the Fullerton Arboretum, I realized I could group these into the “looking up” category and they could have their own post! Just wait until you see my next “looking up” post and see what caused things to land on my head… ~SueBee

Urban Grunge Journal

I just finished an Urban Grunge themed journal, one of my favorite styles to make. I do a lot of street photography and was able to use lots of the photos in this book. I also enjoy the creative freedom of the grunge look… I tried so many new ideas and was satisfied when they […]

Journals I’ve Made

I started making journals in November, 2018, and quickly became hooked on the craft. Making use of my long-held loves of fabric and sewing, as well as gaining an outlet for my many thousands of photographs, and sharpening my brain by learning paper manipulation and digital design techniques… well, there you go. Retirement (and freedom) […]

Washing Out 2019

I made my fourth annual trek to Newport Beach yesterday morning to write the year in the sand and let it wash out with the waves. I’ll tell you, the task isn’t as easy as one might think. Writing numbers big enough to show up in a picture, close enough to the water’s edge that […]

Happy New Year 2020!

Today, January 1, 2020, starts with a picture I took while visiting New Orleans in early 2018. The revelers partying it up on a balcony in the famous French Quarter seem apropos. Many wishes for a healthy, happy, joyful New Year… though perhaps not as much partying as my featured guests have done! ~SueBee

Closing Out The Year 2019

The end of 2019 and the decade of tens is upon us here in Southern California. I imagine plenty of folks are out celebrating, waiting for the approach of midnight to down some (more) champagne and toast one another. I treated myself to a nice dinner out and returned home. I don’t like being on […]

Foggy San Simeon

This is a collection of mood shots I took at San Simeon, up California’s central coast, during my November vacation. My favorite time at the beach is when it’s draped in heavy fog, setting a mellow, reflective tone. Seeing a sailboat anchored silently offshore adds to the atmosphere for me, and my mind wanders to […]

It Snowed!

Southern California’s mountains are snow-covered and beautiful thanks to a Thanksgiving Day storm! Therefore, I drove to Oak Glen yesterday to get some pictures, oblivious to the thought that crowds might greet me. With the first snow of the season bringing lots of excitement, naturally every single resident of the area wants to experience it […]

Cambria Cactus

Cambria is more than just a beautiful spot along the coast. It’s also an adorable little village, full of shops to wander through, and restaurants to eat far too much in. As I walked to a cute back-street cafe for lunch, I spotted this colorful scene that I’m featuring for today’s foto fix. ~SueBee

A Few Days In Cambria, 2

Continuing from my previous post about my recent vacation in the beautiful village of Cambria, along California’s central coast, this gallery showcases Fiscalini Ranch Preserve. It’s a gorgeous area that was saved from development by the residents. It’s truly a magnificent place for a nice long walk along the coast, or up the hill. When […]

A Few Days In Cambria, 1

There’s nothing like a spontaneous little vacation, especially when it’s spent along the Central California Coast in the off-season. I left home early this past Sunday morning and drove to Cambria, a favorite spot roughly 260 miles north. The drive was traffic-free, which by itself was reason to smile. Additionally, the weather was perfect: a […]

Seas The Day Junk Journal

I made a beach journal while taking a break from holiday crafting because anything beach always makes me smile. Not that holiday doesn’t make me smile, it does, but my beach smile is a different one and I was missing it! ~SueBee Information: Seaside themed Junk Journal with a vintage flair, featuring a flexible, soft […]

Today in Oak Glen

I took a nice break today and visited a favorite mile-high place, Oak Glen, home to apple orchards and fresh mountain air. I hoped for some colorful fall leaves and cooler temps. I got my wish, although, the wind blowing the cooler temps made it feel downright cold! It’s hard to go from mid-90s one […]

San Clemente Beach and Pier

I spent the better part of a recent day wandering along the beach and pier at San Clemente, an adorable seaside town about an hour’s drive south of my home in Orange. The morning started overcast, my favorite, and cleared up (became hot) just before noon. Wandering on the beach soon had me with a […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
