Friend Of The Week & Inspiring Blogger – Mary Denman

Mary Denman

This week, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Mary Denman… Writer, Photographer, Observer – a life-long photographer who not only loves to capture her world through the lens of her camera, but enjoys sharing photography tips to help you do the same!

When Mary isn’t capturing life in photographs, she’s busy capturing her thoughts in words. On Monday’s she muses about life – about her family – about her beautiful adoptive kittens – about the challenges of writing – and about the importance of having dreams!

I invite you to visit Mary this week – to explore her blog – to extend her a warm welcome as our Friend Of The Week – and to congratulate her on receiving the Inspiring Blogger Award from Create With Joy!

    Ramona! Thank you so much for the feature! You absolutely made my day! 🙂

    I’m happy that what I share can help and inspire others.

    I love the video on decluttering…and I know worn towels and blankets are good for animal shelters!

    That’s so neat that you featured Mary. I was planning on mentioning her on my WW Link Party, because the photos I’ve chosen to share were inspired by her blog challenging her readers to try new things. 😉

  6. Susan Mead says:

    I just found y’all! What a magnificent site you have created…JOY! May I link up each week?

    I host #DanceWithJesus Linkup each Friday. May I invite you to join the dance? If so, the address – each Friday

    Again, I am filled with JOY to have found your site. Now to dig through it. What a fun way to spend a few minutes today…in my birthday!
