IMG_4774On a sunny autumn Friday, my fiancee and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and go on a mini-trip. Having only heard great things about the North Shore, we decided to go explore Rockport for a few hours.

Its such a cute little town, similar to other New England coastal towns, with plenty of art boutiques to explore and peruse. I love checking out all the unique creations and the local scenery-inspired paintings too!

Photo of Paradise – Featured

My “Sail Off to Paradise” 8×10 photographic print has been featured in an Etsy treasury!

This photo was taken in Phuket, Thailand, one of the areas that got hit the hardest during the tragic Tsunami of 2004.  This photo was taken in Phuket almost exactly a year later, with its resilient community still thriving.  The beaches in Thailand are lined with soft white sand, warm ocean breezes, and crystal clear aqua tinted water – truly paradise!

This print can be purchased at my eboutique at www.majentadesigns.etsy.com.  The photo is listed here http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7887703 but feel free to browse all my other items as I sell handmade jewelry and houseware as well!

Travel Quote

“Human beings are more alike than unalike, and what is true anywhere is true everywhere, yet I encourage travel to as many destinations as possible…Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples laugh, cry, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try to understand each other, we may even become friends” – Maya Angelou

~~~~~

I read this quote in one of my textbooks but I thought it’d be great to share as I love inspiring quotes and I love travel! Its so true, the more you travel, the more you realize that we have alot more in common with each other than you originally thought, and have more understanding of each other too! I am getting antsy for my next travel fix, but no vaca time in the near future though!

FYI: The photo above was taken in Gwangju, South Korea, nearby their Democracy Memorial. I love finding these “May Peace Prevail” polls whereever I travel. You can see the collection I have in my Etsy Shop.

“Lovers’ Embrace” Photo Card

This Photo card was featured in the Etsygreetings Blog!

Location: This was taken inside the Louvre Museum in Paris, France. This is one of my favorite statues, its of “Psyche & Cupid”, the legendary tale of how Psyche’s beauty was drawing more attention than the Goddess Venus, so Venus sets out to punish Psyche. Venus orders her son, Cupid, to make Psyche fall in love with the ugliest man on earth. However, Cupid ends up falling in love with Psyche, which then causes lots of drama and almost losing each other…but in the end, they end up finding each other again, giving a message that love will always triumph in the end.

This photo has Sepia tones and a special soft glow effect so that the focus is just on the two lover’s embrace. This card is great for Valentines Day for anybody who loves fine art, photography, travel, or a great love story (or anybody looking for a card that isnt pink, red, or with hearts).

FOR SALE: This card can be purchased in my Etsy shop here http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9116842

My First Notecards Sale!

My Etsy shop is quite the eclectic mix of things for sale, from jewelry to household items to photographic prints to notecards. I havent had any success in selling my photo notecards, that is until yesterday! One lucky buyer swooped up 3 of my notecards yesterday! I was so happy!

These photographs all have some great stories behind them. The first 2 photos are taken in South Korea, where I got a Fulbright Grant to teach English and be a cultural ambassador for a year. The first photo is of a Buddhist temple in Gwangju, South Korea during autumn. I just love the vibrant colors of the building against the brightly colored leaves too. The second is of Naijangsan in South Korea, an area famous for people to flock to during Autumn to check out the Japanese maples. And finally, the last one is Springtime at my Alma Mater, Mount Holyoke College. A restful spot for someone to recline and nap out on the green or bring their books out to study.

OPINIONS: I wonder if its worth it to try to relist these items or not, if you’re reading this, please let me know!

SALE: Also, today is the LAST DAY of my 20% off sale! so please check out the rest of my Etsy for more items! http://majentadesigns.etsy.com

End of Summer – Martha’s Vineyard Sunset

STORY: This photo was taking on a beach in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. A group of close friends all went out there during the summer after we graduated from high school and before going off to college. Its quite nostalgic thinking back to that trip, as we all watched the sunset and reminiscing over high school memories, wondering what college will be like, etc.
