About Me

I'm Jill Maciulla, a wife, mother, step-mother and grandmother.  I love to create anything from beautiful foods, to all kinds of art and craft projects. Most recently, I've developed a love for photography and watercolor painting.  Somehow it just "clicked" that my view through the camera lens somehow framed things in a way that I never really saw just looking out my window!   Taking pictures has made me excited about my art and its fun to integrate the two.   I find it rewarding to create a watercolor painting originating from some of my very own  photos.

We have an active family so I'm always out shooting events.  My husband, children and grandchildren are avid cyclists so I'm often photographing their bike rides and races.  Another grandson is very active in 4-H and I love to capture his projects.  You'll find the adorable faces of my grandchildren throughout the albums on my site!  

Yes, I hate to admit it, but I'm an audible book junkie and a techie at heart.  I love my computer and on most afternoons you will probably find me editing pictures or creating something in Photoshop.  Oh, and I can't forget my  other addiction....SCRABBLE and WORDS WITH FRIENDS!  Okay, the first step is admitting you have a problem.  I meet with my Scrabble group once a month where we play 2 games of scrabble and enjoy a delicious meal hosted by one of our members.  We've  been meeting for well over ten years.  As for Words with Friends addiction,  I may or may not have at least ten games going at any given time...but it's our little secret!  Don't tell anyone :)

So now you know a little (okay a lot) about me!  I hope you will follow along on my 365 day project and share your thoughts either in the comments, by Instagram (@create3sixty5) Facebook or email!

    Hello neighbor! So nice to meet you at the red-tailed hawk's nest, and your photographs are lovely. We seem to share similar interests, and your photographs are beautiful. p.s. (The scrabble sounds fabulous too)...
