Scenes from Summer

by Dotti


What a great summer! I hope you all enjoyed a summer break as much as we did. The featured mosaic today is a glimpse of just a few of the beautiful photos that have been shared on Focusing on Life's Instagram feed this summer. Here are the artists we've chosen today, identified by their IG handles:

Row 1:
pjscott6
saurand
mrsjanj

Row 2:
barbaracarrollaz
pattiacw
picklesempowermentproject

Row 3:
mellissakraft
deborahcrecelius
rosiegrey

We've provided their IG handles so that if you're not already following these talented artists, you can start following them and be inspired by their art.

Over the summer, the FOL Sisters have made a decision to discontinue our space here on blogspot and move instead to posting on Instagram. It was a hard decision because we love our extended FOL family. But let's be honest: Instagram is where it's happening these days so we're ready to make the move and invite you to join us on this trip.

We plan to have monthly themes to continue to inspire you as well as ourselves. We'll move to our new "home" beginning in November with our traditional Gratitude Month. This has always been one of our favorite months so we thought it was an appropriate way to begin our Instagram adventure. And we are indeed grateful for each one of you.

We ask that, as you always have, you continue to using our hashtag #focusingonlife. To find us on Instagram you'll need to go to @focusing_on_life.

If you have any questions, please post them at our Facebook page and we'll respond to each one of you.

Summer Break




For five and a half years, we have happily brought you Focusing on Life. We've loved every minute of it but this summer we decided we needed a creative break. We will do something we've never done - take off the months of July and August. 

We plan to use this time to relax, spend time with family and friends, catch up on personal projects and recharge our creative batteries. 

One of our stated objectives is to create a safe, welcoming community for creatives to share their art. We believe we've done this so we encourage you to continue to share your art with us on our Flickr page and Instagram feed (#focusingonlife) and we'll share ours there as well. We'd love to see what you're up to this summer!

Wishing us all a joy-filled summer!

Focus on You


So many wonderful examples of backlighting in the Flickr gallery that you all made it very hard to choose one to focus on this week! But being partial to cats as well as the way the backlighting shows off the beautiful fur of this one made this image a favorite.  This was taken by Nikki Agnew of her mother's cat and I hope she frames it! You can see more of Nikki's beautiful images on her Photostream.  Thanks, Nikki, for sharing this with us!
