Hello and Welcome to My Website!

My name is Mary Ruth Anderson, but I prefer to be called Mary. I’m an artist, seamstress, and photography hobbyist. I also make costumes (Or cosplay) as a way to get better sewing and to have fun at conventions and at my local Renaissance Festival. You can read more about me on the about me page.

I like to blog about my art, sewing, and photos I took along with other things that I do or would like to talk about. These posts can be found at the my blog page but if you are looking for pages dedicated to a specific topic, there are pages dedicated to my art, sewing, and photography.

Sunset Photo Dump- July 31-August 6, 2016

Right now I’m working on sewing new things that I hope to blog about soon, but in the mean time, I need to blog about something!

The first week of August, there was a lot of storms in Arizona. Since it’s Arizona’s monsoon season, the time when we get summer storms and lots of rain, there was a lot of clouds, humidity, and heat with a dash of dust storms, called haboobs. I was born and raised in Arizona, so I expect it to happen every summer. My favorite part of monsoon season is the sunsets. That’s when the clouds make some very spectacular sunset and I pull my camera out to take as many as I can.

Since I have so many photos, I decided to share some of my favorites from the first week of August. (And July 31, but there wasn’t a storm or pretty sunset to photograph) I do share some on my Instagram account, but I try to spread out the amount of times I post sunset photos there to make sure no one’s Instagram is overloaded with my sunset photos. :)

Anyway, here are some of the photos I took!
