About

Beth Sawickie www.BethSawickie.com

Hello! I‘m Beth Sawickie and I’d like to tell you a bit more about me and my Nature Energy Art!


I am a Nature Photographer who loves to share the healing vibrations of nature with others through my Nature Energy Art.

I love spending time in nature be it 10 minutes or 10 hours.  It rejuvenates me, fills me up with bliss, and just plain makes me happy!

My purpose is to bring those positive vibes from nature to you.

I do this through sharing my nature photos, mandalas and digital art.

Life Through the Lens…

As I recovered from depression I found I wanted to do something creative.  Photography – mainly nature photography – became that creative outlet.

First a little point-and-shoot camera and after many years my current Nikon D-7000.

As I’d be “processing” my images I wanted something MORE from them. Something that could visibly show the exuberance I felt when taking the shots – like that beautiful sunset!

I began experimenting with filters tweaks…etc.  And stumbled upon some awesome mandala images too.

Mandala Creations…

I became addicted (in a good way) to creating mandalas or kaleidoscope images.

There’s just something mesmerizing about them.

I never know what they are going to look like – I just play with the original image (usually one of my photos) and magic occurs.

Living the Dream in Southern NJ

I live with my boyfriend, Doug, 1 dog (Soc short for Socrates) and 3 cats (Orville, Smoke and Irene). 

Here is Doug and I in our dorky hats on one of our kayaking trips.  I live a much more active life than I used to – and I LOVE IT!

We were both born and raised in NJ – in fact – we’re high school sweethearts 🙂  After many years apart we found our way back to each other and it has been a true blessing!

He has been with me through countless highs and lows and I’m thankful to be able to share my life with him while being in a much healthier place.

We still live in NJ – but have moved further south – down in the “Pine Barrens” (with the Jersey Devil…lol).

Here is Soc looking cute and adorable!  And the 3 cats surrounding me as I attempt to sleep.

Very…um…Unique Homemade Slippers

I just received this through e-mail and just HAD to put it up here. I bet someone would purchase these on eBay!

NOTE:  I DID NOT make these!

It is somewhat embarrassing to admit, but Christmas is tight this year. Therefore, I’ve decided that I will be making bedroom slippers for you all as gifts. Please let me know your sizes as soon as possible. You’ll most likely agree that it’s a splendid idea, and should you wish to do the same, I’ve included the instructions below.

How to make bedroom slippers out of maxi pads:

You need four maxi pads to make a pair.
Two of them get laid out flat, for the foot part.
The other two wrap around the toe area to form the top.
Tape or glue each side of the top pieces to the bottom of the foot part.

Decorate the tops with whatever you desire, silk flowers (this is most aesthetically appealing), etc.

These slippers are:
* Soft and Hygienic
* Non-slip grip strips on the soles
* Built in deodorant feature keeps feet smelling fresh
* No more bending over to mop up spills
* Disposable and biodegradable
* Environmentally safe
* Three convenient sizes: (1.) Regular, (2.) Light and (3.) Get out the Sand Bags.

I’ve attached a photo of the first pair I made so that you can see the nifty slippers for yourself….
