Guest post: “Live Sweet Photography”

A few weeks ago I was able to do a guest blog post for the lovely Live Sweet Photography. Lindsey, the portrait photographer, loves capturing the little special moments in life just as much as I like to create them with my surface patterns.

The Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap

SONY DSC

I am participating in this year’s The Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap, where each participant creates a stitched postcard and receives one in the post from somewhere else in the world.

This year’s theme is “celebrate”. I started thinking about the biggest moments this year where I felt most overjoyed. The greatest moment that stood out and deserves most celebration, was definitely winning the Women’s Softball European Cup B with the London Angels. I’ve played softball for a long time and have been to many tournaments, but this one just stood out to me. I’ve never played such close games, where we almost lost but then came back to win it all again. Anyone playing softball, knows what I’m talking about.

But, as I know too well in my own country, not everyone knows about Softball in the world. I didn’t want to make my card specifically about Softball, it had to be something that anyone anywhere can grasp and benefit from. For that reason, I was looking for a broader term of my softball experience – Victory. I stumbled upon a quote that then tied it all together: “Celebrate your victories. You worked hard for them.” I wanted to appeal to anyone when it came to the imagery, so I choose a common object of celebration – balloons.

Check out lots of other cool cards of participants here.

Less is more

As I am learning more and more about the blog-o-sphere, I have come to realize, that posting daily is not the way to go for me. In the future, I will be posting once a month, with more in-depth content on one subject.
