This is a set of four coasters. Each coaster has a different picture of a yellow or white daisy. Any picture, or pictures, can be inserted into theses coasters. They are for sale at the price of $50.00.


I enjoy watching squirrels. We have many where we live and they are very entertaining to watch and listen to. It's really fun to watch two squirrels chase each other everywhere and then pause, and chatter at each other. This squirrel is eating seeds off the ground next to our bird feeder.

Footprints in the snow

This is a famous poem by Mary Stevenson- I just changed it from sand to snow. :) 
Does anyone know of any poems that would go well with snow?

Let it Snow!!!

We got 9 inches of snow last night!!!!!

We shoveled a lot of snow this morning!!! Work first play later. :)
This is a sleeping snow man we made with the last snow. We (my little brothers and I) couldn't get the middle part lifted up, thus why he's sleeping. :) He's got a 9 inch blanket on top of him now. :-)

Sleeping after a run through the snow. :)

Reading by Candlelight

Yet another Christmas gift. :) Though this is not the original one, but a re-take. The original one was set up for my father. He loves to read and study, but also loves math. So the original one had math books as the middle stack. However it was such a big hit with everyone in my family and friends, I arranged a new one, this one, for a photo contest. It won first place. :) The original is below. It was taken with my old point-n-shoot camera. The one above was taken with my SLR.

Pictures with Verses

More Cards

The Fronts of some more cards that I have made. :)

Sword Picture

This picture is of a letter opener measuring 8 inches long. Another one of my brothers, Trevor, has always loved swords. I took this picture, framed it, and gave it to him as a Christmas gift one year. His first question after seeing it was, "where is the sword?" :) When I told him it was in his stocking he didn't believe me. :) At least until he opened his stocking, for he received the letter opener that year as well. :) This is for sure one of my favorite photos. :)

Flag Picture

This is a picture I set up a few years ago. It was a Christmas gift for my brother Jonathan. It was captured with my old point-n-shoot camera. It was a good little camera, still is, but I much prefer my SLR. :) It does take much clearer pictures. Some day I might take a re-shoot. :) I have many pictures of the same theme just different angels and lighting. It took two sunsets to get this one. The first night it was windy so the set kept falling over. :) My little brothers helped me out both times, for it is a rather long walk to the place where I took it. One of my favorites of the first windy sunset is below.

Storm Pictures

I love a good storm- but prefer them when they do not do any damage.

Canon Pictures

Both of these pictures were taken at Gettysburg Pennsylvania.

More Famous Places

 This picture was taken at the Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC

This picture was taken in Philadelphia- Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell

 This Picture was taken at Montpelier- James Madison's home- This is a gate leading into his garden


These were done for my Grandpa. I was making cookie dough for him for Christmas and needed a picture to go on the container. :)
