Pretending to be a Photographer 3.0

We recently took a cruise around Norway, and, of course, the scenary was incredibly inspiring.

Here are a few of my favorite shots:

Outside the Ascot Hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark. Lots of bikes around the city!

Alesund, Norway

We loved all the old ships at the Sunmore Museum in Alesund, Norway.

Amazing Fjords around Geringer, Norway, with the Seven Sisters Waterfalls.

Rocks weighing down the strings on a loom at the Sunmore Museum in Alesund, Norway.

Water front property in Norway.

My designer takeaway: Traveling makes it easy to see things in a new perspective. Take advantage of that.

Pretending to be a Photographer 2.0

Over the holidays, we stopped at the beautiful Reiman Gardens in Ames, Iowa. With warmth, butterflies and flowers in the middle of winter, this place is very inviting and inspiring!

Here are a few of my favorite shots from our visit:

My designer takeaway: Practice makes us better, and sometimes it’s even fun to practice!

The Pretty Pumpkin Patch

One of my favorite ways to celebrate fall is to visit a nearby pumpkin patch. I love being outside. I love spending the day with my family I love hunting for the perfect pumpkin (It’s all in the stem for me. I like a stem with personality.). I love taking photos.

Here is a little joy from the day at the pumpkin patch.

Love this pumpkin and stem!

I love gourds. I would take home this whole bin, if I could!

The reddish color of this pumpkin provides some nice variety!

My designer takeaway: Find a place you love, and bust out your camera. You won’t regret it.

Collage Wall

Here is a quick peek at a recent project, a collage wall (welcome to the club, right). It was a lot fun. I’m not quite done. A thermostat left me with an awkward spot, and I haven’t quite figured out how to deal with it. I think it will just have to blend it, in the end.

The fun part of this collage wall was that these were framed things that were already in my house! I didn’t have to buy or find any of them. They’ve just been chillin in my basement or other rooms for way too long. Of course, that gave them an instant eclectic look, which I enjoy. It was also low cost, which I also enjoy. 🙂

I started by laying these out on the floor. I moved things around trying to balance the brown and black frames, the large and small pieces, and the photos and other artwork. I enjoy the variety. I hope I can keep that balance as we finish it up.

Then we decided a middle height for everything. We debated about the best place to start. In the end, we started on an edge. After those, we hung the biggest pieces and filled in, evening out all the spaces.

My designer takeaway: This was a good little design test of both visual balance and using a grid to make unrelated items fit together.
