Monday Blog Tour

*Meme Monday will be back next week.

Lisa from Four Simply Living invited me to be part of a blog tour.  How fun is that?  You can read her blog tour post here.  Lisa’s photography challenges, educates, and inspires me.  She hosts a link-up each Wednesday called Life Through the Lens.  I am grateful that she links up here at Beauty Observed for Whatever is Lovely on Fridays.

1. What am I working on?

I’m currently planning a Christmas note card series.  I’m also working on a variety of planner pages to be released around August.  All of these will join the other items in our Etsy shop(We are currently running a 20% discount for Father’s Day.  😉  Enter code DAD20 at checkout.)

2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?

I’m a fairly new blogger and I’m still learning and defining my “voice.”  I have noticed that most of my photos are macro shots.  There’s just something about getting in there and showcasing all of the detail and creativity that God has put into His work.

I think something that makes my blog a little different is that my husband, Ed, contributes by writing posts, editing photos, and creating memes. He is such a wonderful and creative blog partner!

3. Why do I create what I do?

I get so excited about light and detail and I want to share it with others.  I hope it will cause others to slow down and try to find beauty in their own lives!

4. How does your creating process work?

Before blogging, my photography just occurred when the mood struck.  Now, I’m more purposeful about taking my camera everywhere.  I spend a lot of my time in my garden.  It’s impossible to not see beauty with all of those flowers!

I invited June from Inspired by June to join the blog tour.  June is passionate about inspiring others through the written word. She lives, loves and cares for her family in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.  I enjoy visiting her blog because we both use the Canon Powershot SX50.  You should see the beautiful birds she captures with her camera!  Visit June on Monday, June 16 to find out how she answers the same set of questions.

  • Lisa,

    I can’t take any credit for the Etsy shop. Ed took it and ran with it.

    Thank you so much for inviting me to participate. It was fun! I’m enjoying reading all of the other participants posts. I’m looking forward to reading/seeing June’s next week!

  • These are so beautiful, Elizabeth. I’ve had this window open for a day or two until I could take my time with it. I checked out Lisa’s and Roxi’s sites/work in the process, and I pinned a few to Pinterest.

    I’ll be working on learning new things in the world of blogging this summer. I like the format of this blog tour. It gives room for individuality.

    You did a nice job here. Your team puts out a good product 🙂 Glad I stopped by. ~Joyce

  • Dear Elizabeth,

    What a beautiful blog you have! I was just invited to join the tour (I’ll be posting next Monday) and I discovered your blog while visiting the other women who have been on tour!

    I would love for you to share your work at the weekly parties I host at Create With Joy. I think you would feel right at home in my community!

    Have a blessed week! 🙂
