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.

My cookbook addiction

Hello my name is Cheryl and I'm addicted to really ,practical cookbooks! Yes I just posted on another Weight Watchers cookbook. I have no interest in the point system none whatsoever. This little factoid is how you know I just love buying, collecting and maintaining an extensive cook book collection. I only paid the $2.00 plus shipping and handling and got a real bargain! This is organized more like a traditional cookbook  soup and starters,breakfast and brunch,poultry,yeast breads,quick breads etc...I was a little disappointed with the slow cooker section.I use my slow cooker every week and was hoping for a little more to choose from. I am very pleased with vegetarian main dishes.We are not vegetarian or vegan just a busy Mama/college student trying to get my growing kids to eat more vegetables. I wish I had started with this and the One pot cookbook back in 2012 when I had the health scare this would have made eating healthy a whole lot simpler. I will be looking over both so I…
