*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.

Positive Meme Monday #7

During March we held a giveaway.  We asked which verses you would put on a meme if you won a custom photo of your choice.  Here are a few of the verses that were mentioned along with the blogger who mentioned it.  As always, these may be downloaded for non-commercial use.

Lilacs with Ask, seek, knock verse.  Matthew 7 meme

Roxy from Living from Glory to Glory said that she loves:

Ask and it will be given to you;
seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you. 
For everyone who asks receives;
the one who seeks finds;
and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. 
Matthew 7:7-8

Double Daffodil I can do all things through Him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13

Angel from Sew Crafty Angel said “my favorite verse is ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’ Philippians 4:13

I have this plaque over my door to read every morning as I leave home. It’s a gentle reminder to start my day that I truly can do anything.”

Beth from Simply Beth said “It’s hard to choose but I’m going with this one:”

The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. 
My heart leaps for joy,
and with my song I praise him. 
Psalm 28:7
