  1. You are so lucky winning that necklace!...The only reason that I haven't bought one yet is because I can't decide which one of the three that I want...:)

    Thanks for the link to the Creativity Boot Camp too...I've been needing some kind of photo taking motivation beyond flowers in the yard...I'm going to try to find time to do this!

  2. What fun the boot camp would be...but, as I am taking a two day getaway with a dear friend - to two lovely hostels on the Pacific coast near here, I am not participating! I'm just going to be having fun. Will catching up on Wednesday.

  3. My mother once told me well wait till you have a duaghter who turns 40 - then you'll feel old. :) You are just a youngster. Sounds like a great day so far - love that necklace and can't wait to see your newfound creativity spill over to these pages, although in truth, they don't need it. Have fun!!!!

  4. You are such a creative person. I think some of us were born with it and the rest of us struggle to learn creative things. Smile.

  6. graduation from college party??
    Damn, you are old!
    Just kidding.
    Each year will just give you more time for that creative side of you to grow, enjoy the milestone.
    And, just keep hanging out with young people and have them jump for your photos...you'll always be young.

  8. What a joy about your daughter's graduation from college, and you are definitely NOT old. At one of my public readings last year I mentioned the fact that now that I'm middle aged my writing concerns have changed. After the reading, one of my friends came up to me and said, "You are NOT middle aged!" She wasn't kidding around either. She was actually a little bit mad at me. I said, "I am though. I'm 42. If I'm lucky, that's somewhere around the middle!!" She freaked out and insisted that as long as I don't feel or act middle aged, then I'm not. For months after that, every time I saw her or when she sent me an email, she'd say/write, "NMA" to remind me. I loved her for that.

    You are such an inspiration, Beth. Thanks, my friend. xoxo Gigi

  10. Congratulations on your daughter's college graduation, Beth! I'm leaving for one of those parties in about a half hour, then on to graduation at our school where I'm the photographer.
    While I'm thinking of it, I'll take the camera chip out of the computer lest I forget!

  11. Beth you are so talented! I am especially fond of the pastels too...

  12. Wowie - lots of good stuff happening here, lovely One ! I just checked out the Boot Camp class. Can I don it ? You know what, just this morning I had a battle with myself about how I never seem to finish things, how I start them with full on energy and then tweetle out somewhere in the middle. Maybe a two week boot camp is just what I need - doable in the next two weeks in fact !
    I think I will see you there.

    Love to you creative one and congrats on the daughter graduation ! Nice job, Momma !

  19. Congratulations on winning that cool necklace. The birds remind me of one of your pictures not long ago.

    Those amazing steps our children take do seem to mark the fact that we also are growing older.

  25. Very bright, very chalky! My verification word is lumbs -- which probably means nothing, but isn't it an interesting word?

**I love reading the comments you leave, as they make me feel like we're sitting in my kitchen, having a cup of tea, discussing life and wondering where all the time has gone ...beth
