Okay, Ros from Polkaros got her gift in the mail last week so I'm able to reveal the contents of her goodie bag. I made her all her gifts. A tote hand stamped with my own stamps and also purchased stamps, plus a made a fringy pom pom made from cute Japanese fabrics. Then I made her a little phone accessory that's a lil' girl monster. I included some self-made stickers, a little flower brooch, a felted hair clip, and an owley felted bookmark.

a Brooklyn Wedding

My sister was married last month and I photographed her wedding entirely on film and D was my assistant and backed me up digitally until I ran out of film then I took over the digital SLR too. Yeah I'm a camera hog, I admit it. Anywho, I've been away from the blog for a few days because I've been furiously working on her wedding present which is a collection of the photographs as a storybook/photobook plus I've been trying to wrap up the Tokyo guide zine (almost done :) I wanted to share just a few of the shots from my sister's wedding. I have the whole photo story up on my portfolio . It's a very annotated story, since I shot about 200 on film and 200 digital and I have 26 up, but I feel like it tells the whole story.

Zine-Tokyo Guide COMING SOON!!!

Zine coming soon!

I finally found someone to print my zine, so now I'm super motivated to finish it up. Not long now folks. I'm hoping to be done designing it by the end of October and have it up for sale in November. My guide is very photo heavy since it's meant as a photo journal as much as a guide, I think you'll like it pigeons.
