Ghost of Kill Devil Hills

Ghost of Kill Devil Hills

There used to be a wonderful old house in Kill Devil Hills that was built around 1939 and was a Coast Guard station.  The last owner was a lady who loved Kill Devil Hills and donated land for the use of building the schools and the town hall.  This building had a tower on top that looked like a airport flight control tower and this eccentric lady always kept a Christmas tree in that tower year round and it was always lit.  Locals and visitors for years always looked at this amazing building and felt like we were home when we first saw it if we were among the visitors.  The House was torn down in 2003 despite valiant efforts to save it.

Everyone who has seen this piece loves it and it brings back the memories of a place that touched our hearts and souls.  

This incident is a perfect reason to fight for old buildings that not only contain History but live in the SOULS of those around them.

New Works...on the small side...but big design

Many of you know I love fabrics, beads, and found treasures...and have made it a life passion collecting them since I was about 10 yrs old.  Well I have come to the understanding that they do not do anyone any good in a drawer or box , so I am creating ATC size (2 1/2 inch by 3 1/2 inches) art work that I then frame on a fabric mat that creates a beautiful small Art Work...ready to share and enjoy.  These pieces will be listed on my Etsy shop in the next few days.

It is a process of 3 layers of fabric, handstitched and embellished with beads, ribbons, broken jewelry pieces and more...I am enclosing photos of the process along with some finished ones.  Hope you will leave some comments as to what you think....

Please enjoy!

Dragonflies Amazing creatures


Butterflies make my imagination take flight...

I drive the Tour Tram  for the Alligator River Wildlife Refuge in North Carolina, as a lover of nature all my life and photographer I have been blessed with a volunteer job that allows me to mesh all of the above.  I have experienced such glorious exposure to the beautiful and sometimes funny moments of nature and record them in my soul and with my camera.

This week I shot some beautiful photos of butterflies I wanted to share with you and soon they will become my art....Enjoy and stop to look at the little things around you in life.

These beautiful Monarchs are feasting on a natural wet land bush that grows in the Pocosin at ARWR, it is called    Lizard's Tail  to learn more click on the link

I posted this photo to show you how far I actually was away from them...I love my Canon EOS Kiss

This little guy is only a little bigger than a quarter but look how important he is....

Having been a artist literally all my life, I love color and dimension.I learned to sew at age 10 , by age 13 started a stuffed animal business, which grew into a collectable Teddy Bear Business for 15 + years. I opened my own bead store specializing in Spontaneous Creation classes and love to teach everyone they could be creative and open the door to their imagination.I recently returned to one of my favorite art forms taking photographs my father gave me my first camera when I was a child and I have loved photography ever since. I took professional family portraits and weddings for the first 5 years living in the Outer Banks, I am now shooting Family portraits again and sharing my love of the Outer Banks through my blogs. Be creative, walk in faith and never give up....It all happens in God's time
