Photoshoot results!

So the photoshoot on Thursday was a great success! The weather was awesome and Emily, Chelcie & Bree were beautiful. Natasha took some amazing shots and we had a lot of fun.

Apparently those pretty balloons I bought were never meant to be used as a prop. They escaped before we had a chance to use them.

This is Russ. He was barbecuing at the picnic table near where we were shooting.

I spent this Memorial Day weekend at the Gorge for my first Sasquatch Music Festival. I was overwhelmed and amazed by the experience. In just 2 days, I got to hang out in the hot sun and listen to amazing bands like Animal Collective, TV On The Radio, Hockey, St. Vincent, Of Montreal and Jane's Addiction. I have never been to a more beautiful venue. Here is a photo of the main stage.

Handmade Cards

I've been severely slacking lately in the card-making department. I missed Mother's Day, my brother's bday and my dad's bday (sorry fam!). But I thought I'd post about these two cards I made most recently. I think making a card by hand is way more thoughtful/fun than a store bought one.

This card I made for Teresa's 21st birthday.

I made this for my friend Patrick after his bicycling accident last year. Luckily, he didn't break his sense of humor :-)

I'm loving..

Sabrina Ward Harrison has been one of my favorite artists and sources of inspiration over the past 8 years. I remember stumbling upon her first book, Spilling Open when I was 16 and was truly captivated. Her art journals inspired and helped me develop my own artistic dreams and style.

I was so excited to discover that PAPAYA is coming out with an entire line of Sabrina products! I absolutely love these keepsake boxes.

Green Bags & Headbands

Here are two green bags that I finished last weekend.

Here is my first headband. Made from a recycled t-shirt. First tie-dyed and then cut into strips and braided. The beads at the ends are my favorite part. What do you think?

Discovery Park

Mic, Buzz & I went to Discovery Park today. The weather was awesome and I got to do some location scouting for my Camp Smartypants photoshoot.

Orange, Pink, Purple & Blue

The cutest vintage egg cups!

I've had my eye open for some cute vintage egg cups for a while. These are the cutest ones I've seen! Too bad someone else already got their hands on them.

The Black Apple

I am absolutely in love with the work of Emily Martin at The Black Apple. I just broke down and bought this beautiful print. I think this will be the first thing I frame and hang up in my new "room" inside my mom's basement when I move in with her in June. Btw- I am "officially" moving back to Portland (finally!) and am very excited!

Check out Emily's blog too!

Fashion with Soul Power

I came across these amazing photos by Gibbous on the blog, My Folk Lover. I think I am in love! Each piece is one-of-a-kind and made from collected bits & pieces of old victorian clothes. Here's a quote from their "about" page:

"We believe clothes can have souls. We believe clothes should really be worn. Lovingly mended, kept a lifetime & passed down. They can be dear as an old friend or childhood home."

"Gibbous was born of neccessity. In a world ever growing more one size fits all, we are cultivating garments as individual as their wearer & distilling them with all the left behind beauty of the past, present & future."

See more at the Gibbous website and flickr.

Did I mention they sell Gibbous pieces in PORTLAND!?!?!!! That city is calling me by name. xoxo
