Friend Of The Week – Claudia Wilson

Claudia Wilson

We’ve all heard the saying that “A picture is worth a thousand words”.

This week, I’d like to introduce you to Claudia Wilson – the gifted photographer and blogger behind Images By CW.

Claudia was born in Germany and has travelled all around the world, living in Australia, Switzerland, Germany, Bonaire and the United States at various times in her life. She developed an interest in drawing and painting at an early age and a love for photography as a teenager.

As a photographer, Claudia specializes in architecture, nature, sports, food, and digital development. She’s also a passionate windsurfer who is currently focusing on natural light portraits featuring families, couples, singles, children and pets.

If you’re interested in meeting other creative bloggers, Claudia recently started the Saturday Art Linky Party.

Be sure to visit and extend a warm welcome to Claudia, our latest Friend Of The Week!

  7. Hi, thanks for hosting Friendship Friday – I attend every week.

    I added Inspire Me Monday, Wordless Wednesdays and Friendship Fridays to my Link Party Directory: #9

    And was just wondering what time (or approximate time ) they started each week? Also when does Book Nook start and how long does it run? Thanks so much for your time!

      Hi Kristen,

      Thanks so much for adding my parties to your awesome Link Party Directory and sharing the link with me.
      I will book mark it for future reference!

      My parties run on a different schedule from a lot of blogs. Each party is ALWAYS open (meaning that once a party opens, it remains open until the next one begins, so that everyone who visits and wants to join in will always find an “open door”, so to speak – no pressure to arrive early!) I do this because it is so disappointing for new visitors to stop by – find a party they want to join – only to discover that it closed the day before!

      Inspire Me Monday goes live on Sunday afternoons.
      Wordless Wednesday goes live on Tuesdays shortly after midnight.
      Friendship Friday goes live on Thursday afternoons.
      The Book Nook currently runs bi-weekly with new parties going live on alternating Friday afternoons.

      When my parties go live, I usually send out a Tweet (1st notification!) and then an Invitation to those who are on my list. Each party list is different (so if you only attend 1 of my parties – you are only notified of that party’s happenings). I update my lists regularly as time permits but if anyone is NOT on the list and wants to be – leave a comment with your info and I will add you!

      E-mail subscribers get notifications of ALL of my events and blog posts!

      Thanks for asking – I hope this helps! Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Wow, what a friendly way to spend the evening! I love making new friends at Friendship Friday! All the best, Deborah
