Coffee would be the thing that starts it all.
And after that, stories.

I like creating things and my office/home studio area is a mess of overflowing art supplies, camera equipment, fabrics and sewing materials, storyboard ideas everywhere along with journals and magazines peeking out from every flat surface. Books and magazines galore explode from my home out to litter my car and someday I think they’re just going to plain take over everything. Exploration and discovery, especially through travel, is something I try and do as much as possible, at least as much as life allows.

( all photos on this blog were taken by me unless stated otherwise )

I like stories, intelligence, science, economics and history, though I rarely write about those last two. Currently living in Dallas, Texas but hoping to move to the Pacific Northwest area sometime here soonish.

Feel free to email me at fablesandcoffee@gmail.com with questions, penpal requests, travel ideas, artistic collaborations, coffee suggestions, whatever really. I started this blog as a place to put overflowing photo ideas but since then it’s grown to a bit more and I’m always overjoyed to meet and talk with people who have a passion,

    I love your artistic eye, crisp photographs (the mountains were gorgeous!!), and the original art you make in your book. I wish you could recreate it and sell it as a unique coffee table book. I’ve nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award! Have a look at my blog post (link below) for the rules if you’d like to accept. And thank you for the inspiration! =)

    What a lovely blog you have M! Wonderfully post-processed post-process, and some good writing to go with. I guess you are an artist and dreamer, at least, that’s how I read your blogs.

    Take care and keep on blogging!

    Warm summer greetings from The Netherlands!

    • FablesandCoffee · June 30, 2015

      Thank you Tieme!
      Photography is just one of many hobbies but, I try my best throughout the whole process, so thank you for noticing!
      I had a chance to check out your blog and was excited to see posts featuring Rotterdam (a place I used to be very excited to visit for the architectural growth!) so watch out for a whole bunch of “likes” on your blog soon :)
      Take care!

      • Tieme · July 12, 2015

        Thank you for reacting! :) And I am sorry for my late reply. Great to hear you enjoy the process.

        And good to hear you enjoyed the posts about Rotterdam, surely a nice city if you like architecture!

        Thank you very much and take care!
