Ultimate Blog Party 2010!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

It's Ultimate Blog Party 2010 time, hosted by 5 Minutes for Moms!! The UBP is all about connecting with other moms, building new friendships, and exploring lots of fabulous mom-blogs. I'm really excited to be participating this year—I'm a first-timer. The UBP is open to blogger and non-bloggers. Everyone is welcome. And, there are tons of fabulous prizes, too! If you're a Grace Made Evident reader, you can win! Head on over to the UBP prize page, and find some great new blogs to follow. Remember, it all ends April 16th, so hurry on over and start having fun, now!

If you're brand new to Grace Made Evident, my name is Leslie and I started this blog in 2008 to share and write about my photography. I'm a wife and a mom. I work full-time from home in the Christian publishing industry, and I love writing, photography, bargain shopping, and being outdoors.

I love creation, and I love the way it's Beauty and Grace are so evidently displayed. Whether you believe in God or not, I believe there is a Purpose behind the beauty we see in the world. I try to capture that in my photography.

Glad to be partying with you! Your photography is beautiful! I'm glad I found your site! I'm always looking for inspiring photos.

Today, I tried to photograph the petals from crab apple trees falling from their branches. Do you have any tips for how to do this?

Hi!

Stopping by from 5 Minutes For Mom's UBP2010, I'm fashionably late as per usual, but that's not stopping me!

You have a nice blog, and you are a very talented photographer.

Thank you, I've really enjoyed my visit.

I am now your newest follower. Come and visit me at Brea's Befuddled Brain and if you like what you see, help me achieve my goal of reaching 100 followers by my birthday on 2nd May. If I make it, I'm doing a give-away to celebrate!

I hope to see you soon!
