marinsta [August]

Mid September, already [my, how time flies!] and I’m on a mini creative break – probably the last one for this summer [“very hot weather with blazing sunshine” is expected the following days].

my whereabouts… [shhhh]

Meantime, my “to do list” is dangerously growing but hopefully by the end of this month I’ll have everything ‘under control’.
As I mentioned in a previous post: Engage, I’ve recently started an Instagram page where I share photos of everyday images that catch my attention and of my model, Hera posing with various items from my Society6 art shop. Once a month, I’ll be posting them all* together here, as an Instagram monthly review.
* Hera and my Society 6 products will have a separate post – after all a queen must have a space of her own, right?!
September is still young, so to speak, so here’s looking back at August’s Instagrams – or ‘Marinsta‘ as they will be called from now on!  😉



check out my Instagram account for updated shots,



see you all very soon!

Even #nature can be indecisive, right? 😉

  1. Wonderful Marina and Hera is indeed a queen, my Flora and George would love to meet her! I wish I had time to do instagram, I’ll try to remember to check your page again x:-)x Happy days my dear!

    • Hera says she would love to meet Flora and George and sends here hugs and woofs! I think you’d enjoy Instagram a lot for its simplicity. You just click and post. Thank you, my dear friend. Happy days to you – last ones of September. 🙂 xxxxx

  2. I have noticed you don’t monetize your website, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn additional
    bucks every month because you’ve got hi quality content.
    If you want to know how to make extra $$$, search for: Mrdalekjd methods for $$$

  3. Enjoyed seeing your photography Marina, not surprisingly you have a good eye :). I’m in process of joining Instagram too, so will see you there…

    • Ah, thank you John! I don’t consider myself ‘good with the camera’ however phone photography is quite different and it gives me the opportunity of capturing images in a slightly more ‘casual’ way and with fun results! Can’t wait to see your ‘instagrams’. I know I’m in for a treat! 🙂

  4. I like your fun photos and the creative ones too ~ doggie is smiling 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful creative break, Marina! Enjoy the rest of September – it’s flying by, right?!!! ❤

    • Oh, it sure is flying by! Thank you, my dear Christy! Break is nearly over – absorbing every bit! Have a wonderful week ahead. Last one of this month. Autumn is here… 🙂 xxxxxxxx

  5. Dear Marina,
    Love the Instagram shots! Great idea. I’m not doing Instagram as I am busy being overwhelmed by blogging and Twittering. I like the personal quality of WP, and won’t expand until I find a use for it my life. It will be great seeing your monthly presentation here on WP. Of course this month’s highlight is Hera. I adore her to the end of the social media landscape! She will likely always be my fave. Please give her a big hug and kiss for me. I know she will think it’s from you, but I want her to have some of my love in any form.
    Much love, hugs and kisses,

    • I know exactly what you mean by ‘overwhelmed’!!!!!! However it was recommended by S6 so I thought I’d give it a try. It’s also a great opportunity to share shots I take anyway which I find interesting and fun.
      Hera says she loves you and wishes she could see you. “I want to give her many kisses [hope she doesn’t mind my slobbery kisses] and hugs – many hugs!!!!” what she said. Hope you’re strong because the impact of her hugs is that of a bull!!!!!! [no wonder they’re called pitbulls!] Sending my hugs – love and kisses too, my sweet friend.
      Have a lovely Monday and new week! 🙂 xxxxxxxxxxxxx

      • Well, I’m a bit strong, and I’m sure to feel Hera’s hug all the way from Greece to Canada!
        If S6 says it’s a good idea, than you need to do it!
        What do you think of Art Gowns Paper Dolls? I would draw and paint 2 models, and do all of the gowns I’ve made?
        xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Great week, darling Marina!

        • Ohhhhh, what a brilliant idea, Resa! I love it! Great title too! I can’t wait to see! 🙂 🙂
          I’m glad you’re strong cause this pittie wants to send more hugs!!!! xxxxxxxx😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘
          ps1 back to …reality soon! 🙄🙄
          ps2 Happy new week ahead!

            • Bali?!!!!! Oh, yes, I can understand that half wanting to be there!!!! Back to the city and city rhythms – what a contrast. Still, we have to make the most of our lives in every moment, so… Time to organize my crop! 😉 Lots of love to you on this Autumn [almost wintery here] day! 🙂 xxxxxxx
