I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

A fotodiox is a fun little accessory that I use with my SLR camera. It allows you to get extreme macro photos. This is the fotodiox that I have. You actually take off your lens, flip your lens around and then use this fotodiox to attach the "wrong side" of your lens to your camera body. 
To use the fotodiox, you need to have a lot of light and also a very steady hand. You are manually focusing by moving the camera closer and further away from the object. This is very hard sometimes because the depth of field (area in focus) is so small... but that's also why the photos look cool because just a tiny part is extremely close up.
The first picture was of a poinsettia, below is a pine needle.
