In this new year, I'm going to be myself. Well, who else could I possibly be, you may ask? To be perfectly honest, I was trying to be someone I'm not. I guess I wanted to be the Martha Stewart of photography arts and crafts. But you know what? I'm just not that polished. And I'm not all that comfortable speaking in front of groups, let alone on television. I have sooo much to share, but I much prefer being behind the scenes, behind the camera, behind the work table, behind (or would it be in front of?) the keyboard, continuing to come up with innovative ways to use your photos and expand your creativity, to be more YOU!

They say there's an artist in each of us who desperately wants to come out and play. I'm in the process of rediscovering the playful child in me who has not been tainted by the criticism of a parent or an art teacher, or by the constraints of broad  commercial appeal. I'm getting more and more enjoyment out of combining photos with mixed media than ever before. The real joy comes from the freedom of expression, and I really want you to experience this same joy.

To that end, I've decided to change gears in terms of my workshops. Soon you'll be able to download videos of my workshops and work in the comfort and convenience of your own home or studio, and at your own pace. And once you access the password protected workshop, it will be yours to view again and will never expire. Stay tuned!

If you're new to me and what I do, please be sure to check out my website and my shop where you can order how-to kits, books, and more.

I'm continuing to navigate the waters of social networking in order to reach more of's seriously daunting for me but I'm determined. For instance, I just added the "Follow" widget to my blog (ta-da!), so please follow me! And I'm committed to posting more frequently, and okay, maybe with fewer words (as a close friend suggested). Or not. Feel free to offer tips and suggestions. I also added a Photo Fusion page to my Facebook account (although it's not ready for public viewing), but I have a question...why should I have a website, a blog, be on Facebook, and also Twitter? Isn't that overkill???

Happy New Year!
