flat cat

i handmade this flat cat for a united way silent auction at work. i used the same chambray fabric as the sandbox theater benefit pup, then gave the kitty an orange wool kerchief and aqua embroidery. (because blue and orange combinations are so nice ;)

prize ribbons

i LOOOOOVE ribbons and bows of all types, but lately i've been especially loving the ruffles and streaming tails of prize ribbons. it's just great that a little bit of ribbon can signify such a large amount of importance. these pictures are so fun, i kinda want one...

shakeit, shakeit, shakeit

trend central had this great article on the comeback of polaroid and after the fun time i had in the lomography store, i completely hope that there is a resurgence of film. there is that wonderful element of the could have an amazing picture, or an unfocused, off-centered, cropped picture that you still cherish.

i downloaded the lite version of shakeit to my [new] iphone [which i LOVE] and it lets you shake your phone to speed up "processing" and gives your photos tinted edges and white borders. (these are from my sleepover weekend with dana...we assembled 315 bundles of utensils, then stood around and admired her lovely rehearsal dinner dress)

we're back + i heart lomo

our trip to new york was FANTASTIC so once we get all our pictures sorted out i will definitely pick my top ones to post for you! you wonder why we have SO MANY pictures to sort out? let me explain...

while in NYC, we randomly stumbled upon the lomography gallery store (the only one in the US!) and after browsing for ages, i bought myself a mini was just released weeks before, in red & aqua packaging, and was SO freakin' cute! as we walked central park, chris pointed out that counting our iphones, we now had 6 cameras between us. SIX! so that's why we have so many pictures to sort through :)
