Oooh-la, what a week. About Wednesday (blizzard day) I got hit with the winter doldrums, big time. Really honestly for the last four days it’s all I can do to get out of bed before noon and make food for myself. I’ve been infected by Kate’s love of cheesy lifetime movies and it’s really not helping my case at all. In fact, I’m watching one now.
While I learn the real life story of Andrew Luster, MAX Factor Heir (and sex criminal) I thought I’d jot down my progress this week… to remind me that no matter how lazy I am I’m still pretty darn productive!
Weddings! Oh, I’d like to book some more 2011 dates – if you know anyone getting hitched, send ’em my way — here’s what I’ve been working on this week:
I’ve been working on prints, framed pieces and albums from orders from a wedding I shot last year. Fun! It’s like reliving the day and all its touching moments — I’m not afraid to admit I am the wedding photographer that cries every time (every.time.) the bride walks down the aisle. Hormones or just naturally sensitive – who knows? 🙂
New things. For awhile now I’ve been thinking about (and talking about) trying something new with the jewelry. I love my bottle caps, and I’m going to be churning them out in magnets and pins to no end… but I wanted to class up the necklaces and rings a bit… and also try out earrings! Here are some pictures from the first run:
Craft fair. Super sweet! The BIG THAW applications keep showing up on my doorstep and it’s amazing to see all the talented people who want to spend a whole day with me! Click here for The BIG THAW website.
Also… I’m guilty more than anyone of keeping to myself in the winter time. No matter how good your intentions of ‘finally taking up snowshoeing’ or ‘getting out more this year’ at the beginning of December you will always, always be holed up in your second-story apartment waiting, just waiting for the cold to go away. This weekend I overcame! It was Kate Sullivan-Jones‘ birthday and we had lots of fun (and whiskey) at her apartment. Here’s a pic of me there with friends and wearing an awesome t-shirt (that got lots of compliments) that I traded a photograph for with Repurposeful Punk.
Oh! And here is a shot of my photograph in her living room. Looks great, Carmenmerie!
OK, everyone, back to work for me tomorrow morning so time to hit the hay. What have you all been working on this week? Leave links below, if you’d like!
