Bechand's Lensography

This lens highlights the lenses that I have made here on squidoo, and tells you a little bit about me, and why I made them. It kinda pulls it all together, and I hope it gives you a little feel of who I am !

Please do leave a comment so I get some feedback on your thoughts - feedback is very important to me :O)

My Family

My Love of Cooking and Entertaining

My Other Interests

My Work

My Sence of Humor

Holiday / Seasonal

These have influx of traffic during certain times of year.


Squidoo Life and Achievements

These are the highlights my life on Squidoo

  • Joined Squidoo Spring of 2010 - was here before the monsters ! - and have seen lots of changes already.
  • Won a Sunshine Award and Purple star on my charity lens back in May of 2010 - my second lens ever - (with more than double the nominations from the next highest nominated lens) - I am proud to have earned the $100.00 and the Award for The Salvation Army. (The lens is also Salvation Army Related)
  • 4 Purple Stars (2 came directly from Squidoo LONG before I was a Giant -just applying now- and when the rule was Giant's only !) - these were my lens #1 and lens #2 - one more came from nomination from another lensmaster a little later. I value content and a well written lens. I try to make my lenses comprehensive and worth reading. The amethyst astrology seems to notice.
  • Currently on Monster Level 62 - started at level 16 or so when the monsters showed up - Now I have 16 monster trophies ... kinda funny :O)
  • Rated over 1200 lenses and made 10,000+ comments
  • Try to sign on as close to every day as possible and I visit the forum at least a couple times a week.
  • I follow Squidoo on facebook and usually visit the LOTD regularly.
  • Got my Angel Wings in early 2012 - and I bless only and all those lenses that I feel deserve a blessing. Others get a like or just a comment. I value the "blessing" and use it accordingly.
  • Working on developing my niches as well as developing new topics. And I find myself thinking of Squidoo every time something interesting happens in my Non-Squidoo life ... "That would make a great lens!"
  • Got my Giant Status March 2012 - and working on more lenses regularly. I also love visiting other people's pages too - so many different topics ...
  • Top 50 lens in Virtual Jenga Challenge 2012

Tell me what you think of ME, My lenses, and my Squidoo adventures. - If you have any other great Ideas for me, do leave them here too - I love feedback!

      @LittleLindaPinda: He was actually 4 when he did the painting - at a daycare that taught the technique - had a teacher that was an art major. They did others too - Jason Pollock, Andy Warhol, Georgia O'Keeffe to name a few ... Both my kids made some great stuff ! (they ended the chapter with a trip to MASS MoCA Art Museum - and impressed the museum staff with their art knowledge - a group of 4 yr olds ...)

      I am so glad I had the chance to see a larger photo of your son's beautiful painting. Keep up the great work. Wow, only 9 years old. I used to sell reproduction Monet paintings.

      It was good getting to know you a little better through this lens. I think I've told you before, but your son's painting is remarkable. And to think that he did it at age four! He's quite an artist. All the best to you and your family.

      It was nice getting to know you! Our kids are about the same age, but I have two girls. I have promised a party for end of school, which will be next month. Will be back and get some tips from you!
