Welcome to CLIQUE!

I can trace my love of photography back three generations, to the early 1900s and my paternal great-grandfather, Henry Mattson. I have a really cool photo that he took of the old family homestead in Minnesota, sometime before 1910. According to family history, Grampa Mattson frequently took photos of his world - the people and places that he loved.

It warms my heart to know that this love of photography didn't skip any generations as it passed down to me! I am blessed to have such a legacy and I hope to pass it on to my own children and grandchildren some day.

I experience a physical and spiritual thrill whenever the Lord shows Himself in His marvelous creation around us and in the people I meet. My dream vacation would be to spend a year or two just traveling around the US, stopping at little out of the way places and photographing the interesting characters and the beauty of nature to be found along the way - those things that draw me closer to GOD and help point others to Him, too.

Grandbabies in My Yard!

Every so often, my son Matthew brings his two children, Amelia and Adrian and their dog, Missy over to our place and the four of us - and Missy - will play and visit in the front yard. These photos are from a visit on May 30. Yes, it was a bit chilly that day, but the reason for the hats and mittens is not because of the chill, but because a dear friend of mine in PA sent them (and the pink outfit Mia is wearing) and as soon as we opened the box and she saw the clothes, Amelia began stripping her own clothes off to put on the new ones! Anyway - hope you enjoy the pics - each was processed with a digital texture called "Sunday," by Kim Klassen.

Your blog is really lovely and I can see all the work that you have put into it. It's impressive and I can see I have so much work yet to do. I don't mind though because I think I will love and trust the process.. I'll come back to visit yours when I need a bit of inspiration.

Thanks so much for your visit to my blog...it was so nice to open up and see comments. LOL
Right now my life is so busy helping my daughter. She just had a preemie baby and she also has a 2.50 year old so I'll be keeping up with the lessons as often as I can.

Have a beautiful and joyful day.
Cheryl

Thanks Kim for your lovely comment on the Puffins..
Such cute birds and we were able to get so close love all the grand baby photos. I think you know that I now have another grandson but that he was a preemie.
He is doing amazingly well and we are truly grateful and thankful.
I have been busy with the 2 1/2 year old though and so not getting my homework done in a timely manner. It's all o.k. Life and kids first.
Have a beautiful day in the amazing space that you live in...
Cheryl
