Inspiration Corner :Chrysti Hydeck and Tina Modotti

today I wanted to shine the spotlight on two female photographers I am truly inspired by
                                           This photo was taken byChrysti Hydeck
I ran across her altered photographs in Art at the Speed of Life: Motivation and Inspiration for Making Mixed-Media Art Every Day  I can barely describe just how beautiful it was which is why I included a photo .  The reason I am so inspired is because this artist has Tourestte's Syndrome,OCD  and was diagnosed as bipolar.   Stlll she manages to create.   find myself referring back to her  story everytime I am tempted to feeel sorry for myself because of having limited supplies, or I can't get chipboard. or whateever embellishment I think I need to make my  layout or art journal page.  I no longer have a valid reason to not create on a fairly regular basis.
The second female photographer I am truly inspired by is Tina Modotti.   She started off as an actress, but fell in love with   photography.  In the 1930's  mn re supposed to be housewives they weren't supposed to have a career outside of teaching or nursing much less photography.  There  is way more to the story the main thing is check out her work. go to google.com/images or better yet go to your publick library she really had a gift especially with abstract images. Well until next week stay gold.

About This blog

My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, ....you get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
