I am now assembling necklace and earring sets with my new flower series. Taken from my many years of shooting colorful blooms, they range from the striking tiger lily to the delicate pansy. Check them out on my flower series page.
Wow, it's been forever since I posted here. Shame on me. I'm redoing my site. Changing the theme to one I like better. Change is good. I'll try to make the site more user friendly and the shopping easier but I've got some research to do beforehand. Spring is almost here and that's my busy season. Shows and all. I intend to start a list for those as well. For now it's edit, edit, edit.
It's that time of year again. Craft festivals and shows abound. I will be in Glenville, NY. on June 13th at the Paws along the Mohawk Spring Fling http://www.pawsalongthemohawk.com/ and then at Schroon Lake on July 18th for the 46th Annual Schroon Lake, NY.

I would do more this year but I've kept my summer event list short because I'm going to be a grandma for the first time very soon and grandmas have to be available when needed for first time mommies. Nevertheless, come and see my prints and jewelry....I'd love the company.
I've been a long time away, writing, taking pics, living life but when I returned to my website, I found it out of date, trite so I'm in the process of freshening it up, seeing what people want, what people like. I'm going to be a grandmother in June so I need to take the time while I have it. In the coming weeks, you'll see a different set up, different options...any feedback will be most appreciated.
My kaleidoscope pendants, magnets and paperweights are now available at the World Awareness Children's museum in Glens Falls, NY. Hopefully they will also soon be at the Chapman museum as well. I am so happy! A lot going on and a lot to come. Stay tuned!
I have garnered some extra work these days. I have been designing a website for a local organization, http://upstatemodelrailroaders.weebly.com/ and I have been writing newsletters for my writers group, Glens Falls Writers Group, http://gfwriters.blogspot.com/ . I have also been writing as well, taking new shots. I added my detail series to the site here and I'm going to refresh the site with some newer work. Drop me a line, give me feedback! I'd love to hear from you!
I would like to introduce you to my new author website, http://deborahaustin.weebly.com/ It contains the link to my novel, "Hiding in Plain Sight" now available on Kindle and info about upcoming novels. Drop by for a visit, send me a line...
I have finally published my novel, which was the inspiration for the title of my business, on the website, Authorstand. The title of the novel is "Finding Home" of course, and you can find it here, http://shop.authorstand.com/Products/1639-finding-home-full-novel.aspx , you can also find the first chapter to read here, http://shop.authorstand.com/Products/1617-finding-home-chapter-1.aspx The novel sat on my hard drive for the better part of 5 yrs. until I decided to put it out to the public and see the response I got. Feel free to check it out and see what I do between photo shoots!
And suffering from a bad case of copyright infringement. A photo of mine was used without permission in a newspaper insert. I've not started anything legal as of yet, I will have to wait and see what happens after my initial correspondence. New photos have been added to my New York page.
Love, Peace, Chicken Grease
Some changes here on my website as I've been away from here for awhile. I'm now happy to say that I can finally sell my photos here as well as show them. I'll continue with alterations and keep my watchers and friends updated.
As for updates, I had a great holiday season and I'm looking forward to another year of photography and fun and all the other hobbies I can find the time to enjoy.
Family is well, friends are golden..
