Blog Feature: My Savior


My feature this month is a talented photographer and team member. Sue's shop is called My Savior. She has been selling on Etsy since 2009. She became interested in photography on her 10th birthday when her parents gave her a Kodak Brownie camera. They were a picture taking family and between the black and whites photos and the old movie reel films, Sue was always involved with some sort of photographing.

As a teenager Sue would go take photos at a local psychedelic shop in her town. She had to come there with her camera and take all types of crazy shots. It was colorful art to her.




Sue is most inspired by God's creations. Everywhere she looks there is something that she wants to capture by her Master Creator.




Sue is an ephemera collector. Paper items of all kinds. Postcards, greeting cards, bookmarks, tags, anything made out of paper. Her other interests are crocheting, and creating collages. She has some online friends who travel the world and send her postcards and is thrilled to receive them.



The ultimate message she would like to convery is that no matter who you are, we are all saved by the Grace of God.




The area she lives in is very influential in her photography. The mountains, the woods, and the flowers. Although she used to love taking photos of NYC but that is hard for her now with limited mobility.




Sue is offering one of my readers this beautiful pink floral note card. Just leave a comment for a chance to win. The winner will be announced April 30th.
