carpe diem

i’m learning more and more every day to appreciate the present. this is one of the things that I have always enjoyed about shooting film.

come back to bed

i’ve gotten away from shooting and sharing film these last few years. i am coming back to it, back to this space, and back to flickr. 

baby steps. here we go. rise and shine, world.

finding your way

trix_Scan2

If you’re feeling frightened about what comes next, don’t be.

trix_Scan1

Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path towards happiness, don’t waste time with regret.

Spin wildly into your next action.

trix_Scan3

Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes; because you’ll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over.

Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart… where your hope lives. You’ll find your way again.

$5 print sale

20130606-143017.jpg

Hey friends,

Happy friday! I’m having a $5 print sale over on my instagram account, right now.

They are 5 x 5″ prints of my film work (you may see a couple of 5 x 7″ in there too though). The prints are more beautiful in person, all printed professionally on lustre paper.

Don’t we all need more art in our lives and on our walls? Well, you can’t beat this price. And if you snatch up two or more, I will include free shipping anywhere in the USA. See the deal just got sweeter!

Here are some of the photos for sale but there are a lot more over on instagram and I will be posting throughout the weekend. First come, first serve, there is only one of each print available.

I will probably run this through Monday and then call it good, this is definitely a limited time offer! Check it out!

 

Have a great weekend.

Where can you find an art museum, a winery & a replica of stonehenge within a mile of each other? Why Maryhill, Washington, of course!

It’s such an unexpected place. My parents took me there when I was a wee child and I have fond memories of it. I have always meant to return there. Last September, just over labor day, my dad invited us to go visit with him and his girlfriend (now fiancé). We willingly took him up on it. (Us and we always means my boyfriend Cal & I. :)

Here is what we saw on that gorgeous, late summer day.
