Witch Bottle

Happy Winter Solstice!

Today marks the shortest day of the year, and so the days will start getting longer.

Only a matter of time before Spring returns~!

In the meantime, cold weather means more time spent inside making props and decor, like this glass bottle filled with tiny flowers available in the Metaphysical Blend Shop!

There are tons of bottles, flowers, and leaves hanging around the studio, just waiting to be photographed!

Let’s make the time in the coming days to play and make progress on our projects!

Orange Glass Pendant

Available in the Metaphysical Blend Shop, this necklace features an orange marble wrapped in wire and snuggled under an ornate bead cap.

Definitely love the orange glow, and there are plenty of other glass pieces around the studio just waiting to be made into jewelry!

Although style varies when crafting, handmade necklaces and accessories with a fantasy flair have major personal appeal, as they can be used as future props for portrait photography.

Let’s keep our eyes open for findings that spark our imaginations, and keep putting our inspirations to use!

Touch of Nature

Décor doesn’t have to be elaborate or expensive.  You can find a lot of beauty and inspiration in a simple thrifted bowl filled with dried flowers.

Let’s go out and scavenge some fresh or fallen flowers, sprinkle them over a table, fill a bowl or vase, press and frame, or draw from nature’s beauty another way!

Photography of interior architecture

There is often much to see when looking up.  Fine architecture and beautiful symmetry aren’t limited to flooring or our eye-level surroundings.

Interior photography is a pleasure to look at, and inspires me to keep my eyes open when out and about the city, whether in a bookstore, library, or shopping mall.

Let’s remember to look up every once in a while, and enjoy what beauty we may find there.

Move Forward

Challenges

Life is full of challenges.  That’s how we grow and learn to move forward.

Getting upset isn’t going to make bills any smaller.  Drowning in anxiety isn’t going to change our situation.

Let’s remember that every challenge can be overcome, and there’s nothing we can’t grow to handle.  So when challenges arise, let’s not entertain fear, but move forward and accept the challenge.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Feeling Blue 2

Depression has a way of sneaking up on you, especially when you ignore it.  Unfortunately, it’s not something that will go away by pretending you don’t notice.

I’ve been feeling quite blue lately.  The spiral started a few months back, and having been through depression years ago, I wasn’t hoping to struggle with it again.

Avoidance never seems to work out.  Let’s not be afraid to face our emotions and what they may mean, and let’s remember to ask for help when we need it.

This is when friends, family, and doctors come in.

Let’s get the help we need from others and ourselves, move forward, and always remember the positive when we’re feeling blue.

This beautiful scene was hiding around a shop’s corner.  It was on a quick trip I took with someone at the last minute.

I hope to appreciate and capture a lot of beauty this coming year; I hope you’ll enjoy.
