for my kids, anyhow, is a fresh pack of tape and some old cardboard. So when I saw this yummy tape (did you know tape could be yummy?) I knew it would be a perfect little gift for my daughter’s upcoming b-day.

Did you know they make Polaroid attachments for holgas? They do! I just got mine and after nearly 2 packs of film and several expletives I finally figured the darn thing out (ummm…i needed more light) It’s so funny to see the kids reaction to polaroid. To them it’s like magic, ‘it makes the picture right away!’ We are really, really bad about getting all of our digital pictures printed (I mean, really, really bad) So for them to get a ‘real’ picture on paper, and right away, stand back. To bad the film is so darn expensive.

We got a bit of snow today (more than expected), but luckily the kids were already off to school by the time it really hit. Snow is enough of a novelty here, that school is cancelled at the drop of a snowflake. So, I am happily working away and enjoying the view. I am finishing up some orders and working on a couple exciting projects I will share soon! Oh and lots, lots of new work that will be available as prints very soon.

Did you see this amazing keepsake created by the small object? Truly, my head is spinning with possibilities!

oh, and a side note, I have had an avalanche of spam comments today, so if I accidentally deleted your very much appreciated comments, so very sorry (i started to get a happy click finger)

I volunteered to work on my daughter’s class auction project. If you have school aged children you know what this is. To raise money each class creates something to be auctioned off. I actually really enjoy doing it and thinking of something that has not been done. So, I think we’ve settled on creating a photo transfer of one of the Portland bridges. It will actually be made up of many, many small transfers that will be framed together to create the image of the bridge. It should be a really cool piece. Here is a little peek at my test squares. I am using wintergreen oil for these transfers so my house has a nice minty freshness! I will post the finished piece when it’s done.

I always grab extra paint chips when we go to the paint store and stick them up on my inspiration board over my desk. It’s an easy way to see color combos, plus I just like the way they look pinned up there. When I saw this I realized I could take it to a whole new level. I may be taking a few trips to the paint store soon…
