Fever

In Uncategorized on November 17, 2009 at 7:23 pm

I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s my sisters wedding coming up so quick (three weeks!!) or maybe I’m just dying for something pretty, but lately I’ve been having the Wedding Fever. Here’s a few more links I am falling in l.o.v.e with:

I’m in a wedding mood today. A pretty mood. A “I want to be wearing a dress” mood.

And it’s Friday. Thank God.

Summer Evening

I’m loving the colors of this photo, and the lighting behind her hair. It has such a typical summer evening feel to it. If only she was holding a piece of BBQ’d corn, then it really would be the perfect summer night (but would also look kinda weiiiird).

A friend and I are going to be doing a photoshoot pretty soon, we’re just finishing up all the final touches. We bought three summer dresses for the shoot, all for under $15, a large silk Peony, a blonde wig from Ebay (in a bob style), and we’re borrowing a pair of cowboy boots.

We’re going go do the shoot at my parents farm. I figure pictures by the horse, maybe in the woods with the goats, or in the chicken coop with a chicken under my arm, would be pretty cool. We’re also going to bring a picnic basket, quilt and wine glasses down to the woods and see what sort of fairy-tale / whimsical feel we can create down there. Should be interesting!

Cuteness Makes You Dance

Doesn’t this wedding just make you want to dance? Check out Style Me Pretty, one of my daily reads, as you probably know, for more pictures from this wedding. I just LOVE you last picture of the girls dresses and cowboy boots, too cute!

And those lanterns hanging from the trees?? Perfection. Love the finishing on the photos too. Lovely.

Hello!

Sigh.

Back home in Canada, from our EXCELLENT trip to England and Paris…I’m thoroughly refreshed with broadened horizons. But I still don’t want to be home!

Our trip was so incredible. We experienced so much and saw so much of the world. Our days were filled to the brim of sightseeing, and now that we’re home I just can’t believe that we got all that sightseeing in! We say Versailles, Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower, Buckingham Palace, spent two full days in London, visited family, went to the beach, hiked around the countryside, visited Stonehenge, the HMS Victory…the list goes on!

I’ll be updating the blog with more stories of our travels, and pictures of course!

It’s good to be back…

A Girl’s Gotta Do…

decal

Lookit what I’ve bought! This wall decal from Willow Creek Signs is going to look perfect on our new light pink wall in the bedroom. Right above the cream colored bed…I can’t wait to put it up!

Then, a couple inches above our bedside tables, we’re going to hang these little pictures by Skinny Swallow. I already have one that is similar colors, but a different photo, and this Lilly Pad picture is going to look adorable on the opposite side of the bed.

I can’t wait to get these items in the mail and to start decorating our room a bit more. Once their up, I’ll actually make the bed and take a picture to share here!

I might buy this one later on…for above the dresser. Or somewhere else…I just have to have it!

Another thing I have to have: This pattern. I need to clean out my sewing room and sew a couple tops for England! I’m still stuck on what shoes to bring there though! We’re going to be doing a lot of walking…but I still want to wear my flats and sandals! What to do? Hubby thinks I’m being silly, but a girl’s gotta think about these things!

Any advice?

All the Luck

In Uncategorized on February 24, 2009 at 3:38 pm

Some people have all the luck. Black Eyed Suzie is the lucky one this week. Not only does she have a Feature Sellerarticle, but Etsy has also put out a Handmade Portrait video of her creations. Lucky, like I said.

One thing I don’t get though, is why Etsy would feature items similar to the sellers…but NOT the sellers…in the pictures of “Related Items” under the article. In this case, the artist is a doll maker, so posting links / pictures to her dolls is awesome, but to other people’s dolls? Just doesn’t jive with me. Pictures, paintings, other items: sure, why not. But the competition? Nuh uh.

Just my thoughts…

This store is unbelievable! You know when they say that photos are everything on Etsy? If that’s true (which I think it is!) this shop has it all. Each of their pictures are a work of art…I would frame them. Really. I would. I’m thinking a burnt orange color on a wall with several of these photos in a black frame. But that’s  not even what Gougo Loft is selling! It’s the clothes! And they’ve already captured you haven’t they?

Well, I’ve been working my little bum off sewing the past couple days. I’ve sold seven bags, three on the Internet and four to girls in town! SO EXCITING!! I’ve decided that all the money from these sales is going to go into Arbonne products, in order to build up my stock of testers. Arbonne has a great deal for new consultants called the RSVP. It stands for something…but I can’t remember what it is (: Anyhoo, if you spend $840 on products you’ll only have to pay $420. It’s an awesome way to build up stock and be able to try out products for yourself.

I also just placed a pretty big order for catalogs, order forms, and samples from Arbonne. I’m headed to Calgary at the end of the month to see my sister and take in an NHL game (my first LIVE game! I’m SOOOO EXCITED! I even know what I’m going to wear already!). While we’re there my sis is going to host an Arbonne party / girls night. Wine, pastries, and of course makeup! What more could a girl ask for?! It’s a great way for me to maybe sponsor new consultants in that area.

I’m also going to tell the girls that come to the party that if they want to book a party with me, I’ll drive down again in January and do a couple parties in one weekend. And if they decide to become a consultant, this is a good way for me to help them out, train them a bit and answer their questions. Not that I’m a pro or anything yet! Arbonne is so great though, it has amazing resources so sponsoring new consultants long distance isn’t difficult!

Anywayssss! I’m rambling on! Hope everyone is having a great week so far!

Flickr: Aknacer’s Many Faces

In Uncategorized on October 5, 2008 at 5:00 pm

The other day I emailed Aaron of Aknacer on flickr to see if he’d be interested in doing an interview for my blog. I was actually surprised at the speedy reply, but yep, he was interested! Make sure you check out his girlfriend’s flickr account too, RosieHardy.

Q: You’re an avid user of Flickr. How and why did you get started?

I first joined Flickr only to share some travel photos, but as my interest in photography grew i found Flickr to be a great social network to develop ideas and get feedback and support on photos. 
Q: How has Flickr benefited your photography and love for this art?
I started my 365 project because I saw some other people doing it on Flickr. Basically the idea is take a self portrait every day for a year. Some people go the simple route, and just do a snapshot most of the time, I wanted to create images that I could be proud of. The pressure to create something new and worth while every single day has made me devote quite a bit of my life to photography. I am spending anywhere between 3 and 9 hours every day creating the images you see on my stream.  Spending this much time on photography has really helped me to improve my skill, see what works, and what doesn’t.
Q: I’ve been following your Flickr Love Story with Rosie for a little while now, but many of my readers might not know what this is all about. Could you tell us a little bit about Rosie and you?
Rosie and I actually celebrated our 5 month anniversary today! Rosie lives in England and I live in the United States. She and I met through Flickr early on in our 365 project. It became very obvious from the begenning that we are very similar. The first thing I ever said to her was that I think we have the same brain. I believe that even more today. It is amazing how much you can tell about a person by what type of images they create.  Meeting my soulmate through Flickr couldn’t have been more perfect. We share all of the same passions in life but don’t necessarily compete for the same audience. We each create different types of images, and I think people are attracted to our images singularly as well as coupled.
Q: Where do you see Flickr taking you?
I am now working as a professional photographer and digital retoucher. When I first joined Flickr I had no plans of changing my entire life around for photography, but thanks in part to Rosie, Flickr, and all of our supporters I know now exactly what I want to do with my life and couldn’t be happier.
Q: What did you want to be when you grew up?
Good question, and the answer has probably changed more than I care to admit. I have gone through everything from Plastic Surgeon to ninja 🙂
Check out Rosie and Aaron’s blog! They have great tutorials, movies and pictures (:
