I love the idea of making something that isn’t traditionally feminine… even more feminine.  You will find me searching for free resources for a cool artistic computer wallpaper, or a quote/bible verse for my lock screen on my phone. Pinterest is great way to find some free quotes, but I have discovered most of them won’t scale down to my phone.  Something always seems to get cut off, dangit.  So I decided to start making my own.

A few years back, I was in a Bible memorization group, and I found that if I had the verse on my phone, I would memorize the particular verse better.  I went about creating more phone wallpapers and sharing them here on my blog.  I’ve kept most of them up for anyone who wants them.  You can find them here or here for starters.  

We are going through a fantastic series at our church, and last week was about the value of women.  It would be my recommendation to listen to the podcast.  It was that good.  And deeply impactful. And I found myself wanting a reminder on my phone to keep the words I use about myself in check.

I thought I’d share it here, so anyone who needs that same reminder can access it freely.  🙂  Free Lockscreen Wallpaper

Happy Remembering Your Value!!!


Film is not dead.

Just got my first film scans back since Ritz went out of business.

I’ll let that sink in a tad.  It’s been awhile.

I started out learning photography 16 years ago, with my Dad’s Minolta film camera. I favored textured, grainy black and white images, and the only place I knew for developing was Ritz Camera.  I edited nothing.. just shot, and developed and printed.

I guess I haven’t strayed too far from those early days of yummy film texture and black and white conversions, eh.

Film is not dead.
