a little holiday flash

It’s day 7 of Picture The Holidays, and today we were prompted to “express ourselves”. I chose to not do a self-portrait. Nope.

I was more interested in this little gem that arrived in the mail yesterday :)

a little holiday flash ;)

Isn’t she sweet? a perfect little model.

I express myself through creating. Any type of creativity, really. Be it photography, my design work, decorating … I have to just do something. Make something.


This photo, for instance. It’s a cute little photo all by itself. But then I start to play around with it, make something more of it. An hour flies by where I’m content, happy, satisfied.

Yes, that’s the word, right there. Satisfied. The feeling I get when I’ve finished something and I sit back and look at it and I know I’ve gotten it right. When I’ve gotten it exactly how I envisioned it at the start and that vision is sitting there looking back at me.

It’s great.

Creativity is my outlet. My sanity, to be sure.

My expression.
