Happy New Year!

Cheers & Happy New Decade! I started pottery a little over a year ago in October 2018 and have become an avid potter ever since! While my first mugs were quite “cute” (otherwise known as small and < 6 oz. mugs), I can now regularly throw mugs that hold 10-12 oz. of liquid! In December, […]

Eco-Friendly Gift Wrapping (Kodak Blog, February 2010)

NOTE: This is a “reprint” of my blog post to Kodak’s previous “A Thousand Words” blog. This past Christmas, I decided to give a little “greener” by making gift bags instead of using gift wrapping paper. “Reusable” gift wrapping is even better than recycled or recyclable gift wrapping paper! I went to the fabric store […]

A Blog Entry with Some Serious Buzz (Kodak Blog, July 10, 2009)

NOTE: This is a “reprint” of my blog post to Kodak’s previous “A Thousand Words” blog. It was early evening last month and as I was looking out the kitchen window into the backyard, I noticed a LOT of bugs flying around. I thought to myself – am I paranoid, or does it sort of […]

I Love My Eye-Fi (Kodak Blog, March 9, 2009)

NOTE: This is a “reprint” of my blog post to Kodak’s previous “A Thousand Words” blog. You would think that since I work for Kodak, I would be very diligent about archiving, sharing and organizing my digital photos. I wish I could say that I am that organized, but the truth of the matter is […]

Photo Wall Art (Kodak Blog, December 22, 2008)

NOTE: This is a “reprint” of my blog post to Kodak’s previous “A Thousand Words” blog. As you may have gathered from my previous blog post on color (and paint), I’ve been doing quite a bit of home remodeling. Now that we actually have some finished walls, I can actually start thinking about what to […]

Home, Home on the Range… (Kodak Blog, September 16, 2008)

NOTE: This is a “reprint” of my blog post to Kodak’s previous “A Thousand Words” blog. One of the delights of exploring places both near and far away from home is that once in awhile you stumble upon something surprising – either surprising about where you found it or surprising about the discovered item itself. […]

Color, Light, Texture and Perception (Kodak Blog, June 17, 2008)

NOTE: This is a “reprint” of my blog post to Kodak’s previous “A Thousand Words” blog. There’s nothing like a paint chip, a can of paint and a large painted textured wall to remind us of the relationship between color, light, texture and perception – both in real life and in the pictures we capture! […]

Maker Faire 2008 (Kodak Blog, May 8, 2008)

NOTE: This is a “reprint” of my blog post to Kodak’s previous “A Thousand Words” blog. Another Maker Faire has come and gone and once again my brain is inspired and swollen from all of the exciting projects, ideas and tools seen at the faire. Maker Faire is a faire for do-it-yourself (DIY) people of […]

Signs of Spring (Kodak Blog, March 24, 2008)

NOTE: This is a “reprint” of my blog post to Kodak’s previous “A Thousand Words” blog. Spring is one of my favorite times of year. When I lived in the midwest, I longed for the first signs of spring, especially when it seemed like winter might not ever end. Every year, I was always amazed […]

Beware of Invisible Cows (Kodak Blog, February 2008)

NOTE: This is a “reprint” of my blog post to Kodak’s previous “A Thousand Words” blog. I have to admit that I have lots of pictures of signs in my photo collection. Signs are great visual reminders of where I’ve been, what I’ve seen and what I’ve learned, especially when traveling or on vacation. They […]
