Hello there!

My photo
My name is Susan, and Designs by Prater is what you could call my creative outlet that pulls together my photography, art and graphic design endeavors! The most important thing you should know about me is that my life revolves around my God and my Savior Jesus Christ, my family (especially my husband Todd, son JD, and puppy Lexie), family and friends. Other than that, I am pretty much obsessed with photography, Coca-Cola, and the color green (and all shades of green for that matter, especially teal). I love sports but cannot play them worth a lick. I would not trade my time as a college student at Mississippi State for anything in the world. The friendships and memories made there will stick with me forever...Hail State and Go Dogs! And I am very picky about my chocolate chip cookies, grilled cheeses, and shaved ice (gotta be SnoBiz watermelon flavor).

Operation NICE - Join Me!

As many of you may already know, I "blog stalk" several other photographers' blogs each day for inspiration and continual photography-related education. Well, one photographer's blog might lead me to another photographer's blog mentioned, and that blog might lead me to another website for a product they love, and before you know it, I am SIX degrees somewhere else and not sure how I landed there. But alas, all is OK because I just found this really NEAT site because of it - Operation NICE!

You gotta check it out! It's a pet project of a graphic designer from New Jersey/Philadelphia and she shares all sorts of ways that you can simply be nice to someone...kinda like paying it forward! She gives weekly assignments to help you find ways in your life where you can be nice to others and shares other freebies and things she learns along the way...including this next tidbit!

Did you know there was a search engine that when used, makes a donation to your selected cause every time you search for something. It's called Goodsearch and it is powered by Yahoo. Find more info about it HERE at the Operation NICE website, as well as how you can make it the default search engine in your web browser's toolbar. While I will continue to keep my iGoogle page as my homepage, Goodsearch has now become my official search engine.

Well, if you'd like to also join them in their cause go to their website to learn more and even grab this cool widget to post on your own blog.

Have you found mine over there on the left...a little further down...yeah, right there! :)
