Tulips has a wonderful, heartfelt blog which uses many beautiful photographs to tell her stories - you have to check out the one about the golden rays migration! http://tulipstalking.blogspot.com/2008/08/gliding-silently-beneath-waves.html
She also has the most wonderful Etsy shop - http://www.tulipstreasurebox.etsy.com/ in which is the most exquisite beaded jewelry, make sure you check it out!
