The Deviant Awards Feature 6
My Deviant Award Folders are filling up so fast in the past 2 or 3 weeks
that I wanted to get this published to make room for even more great
art work in my folders.....
I am especially thrilled that spring is happening in almost every part of the world and USA and new submissions are posted every day of beautiful flowers and landscapes and baby animals...
We had a pretty brutal winter here in the North Woods and I was left
looking out the windows more then I was in the field, but that is
slowly changing as your wonderful art is actually firing my brain
chemistry to highly motivated and given me a renewed energy since
February turned the page to March and I can actually see the day
now that Spring will be Sprung.....
Keep up the great work my friends and though I don't have the time
to comment on photos as much as I would like to, I look at all the
Deviant Submissions and save all your mail until I can get the
chance to reply.......
Thank you so much for faving this feature so other De

Hello Deviant Art!

    Despite how sour or "glass half empty" the title sound, it is indeed a good thing! I am still alive and kicking. This has been an incredible busy year full of grand blessings, although it has also taken a lot of time and work. I have so many images I would love to share with the world but have just found that time, as always, passes on by so quickly.

    As some of you know, I have been attending school to become a nurse. I graduated in December and passed my boards in February. In May I had the amazing opportunity to travel through Europe on a Rick Steves tour. It was brilliant! I have so many photos to share from that experience. It truly was one of the greatest months of my life! While in Europe I was finishing up a job application for a new job (I tried to get everything done beforehand, but when working with other people timelines aren't always effective). I did, finally, get my application turned in. I interviewed in June and by July I was welcomed into a new job as a hospital RN (Registered Nurse).

    The last couple months I have been going through a rather vigorous orientation that I am ever so grateful for! Finally I am now out and working on my own, cheers! My hope is that I will eventually (hopefully sooner rather than later) will have more time for things that I have longed to be doing and have been neglecting since, well, forever it seems! I am excited to be moving on to this new part of my life with this grand profession ahead of me.

    I hope this note finds you all well and in good spirits as we head into the holiday season! I am sending you all the best wishes and hopes for happiness in these coming weeks! Take it easy, give yourselves a break, take a nap if you need to, and above all else be happy!

  • Listening to: The Cuckoo Clock "tick-tock"
  • Watching: Time Ticking Away
  • Playing: Pokemon Shuffle
  • Eating: Extra "Classic Bubblegum"
  • Drinking: Water

Hello friends!
My name is Lori. My spirit is that of a child. The world is a great wonder for me. I love all of God’s beautiful creations, and I find myself to be in a very wonderful place, taking pictures of this beauty. Photography is merely a hobby for me at this point, although if I had the chance I would totally make it a profession. I am self taught in photography. In 2008 we welcomed the world of photography into our home. That same year we went to the beautiful Islands of Hawaii for the second time. With my little point-and-shoot Olympus my love for photography began, minorly, however. It wasn’t until 2009 that my interest really began to take form. For graduation in 2010 I was gifted my first slr digital camera! Since then I have been an absolute photography fanatic.

I am a lover of many things: Life, nature, photography, art, music, animals, and so on. :heart: Any questions yet? Please don’t hesitate to ask!

I have visited a few places such as Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, California, Utah (well most of the western states in America), I have spent a day in Canada and hope to return soon to see more. My latest exploration has taken me to London, England. I had an amazing time! It was brilliant! I would absolutely love to go again. In January of 2012 I will be going to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands for two weeks with my college. I am very excited, and nervous, for this experience!

I am a college student, planning on getting into nursing. (Who isn't these days?) ((EDIT: A&P IS A KILLER!))

Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me. I love making friends, and if you stop by and give me a llama I will return it to you! That goes for a watch as well, if you watch me then I will happily watch you!

I hope that you have a lovely day and enjoy what you see. Thanks for the page view too if that is all you leave for me. :heart:
