{ Fun Photo Frames }

I'm always looking for new and interesting ways to display my photos. Check out these fun photo frame finds from Photojojo. The doddle photo frame and photo clips are my fav! And how great would it be to give or get Photo ololy as a gift! Great ideas for those who want to display outside the frame ;)

Here's a sneak peak of what I've been working on for the past few days at work. The client is Premier Designs jewelry. A quick behind the scenes look from the camera's perspective. Here's what my shots look like minus cropping and before they head to prepress for retouching.

{ 3 out of 6 }

Not bad for a weekend of projects that I wanted to check off my list. It's amazing how something as little as a can of stain can transform the vibe of a piece of furniture. I really liked how my bed frame turned out. Find out where I got the goods for this project for under a buck here! The chocolate covered frozen bananas were also a big hit and very tasty indeed ;) The recipe was a breeze and it was fun to add my own flavors too. For these I used cashews, peanuts, and vanilla cookies and added the whipped topping to up the yum factor. I also was able to enjoy some of my weekend outdoors on my long run (I am up to mile 7 in my half marathon training). It felt equally delicious to feel the warm sun on my face ;)

{ Creative Pitch }

Hello! Work has been keeping me extra busy these past few weeks. It seems like everyday there is new news about changes being made to my company. Luckily no one in either the photo or the design departments have been affected. I can't help but feel blessed to have a job that still excites me to go to everyday. To help spread some of my good cheer I'm in the progress of organizing a donation to a non-profit organization called Creative Pitch. It's a great place that takes in used art supplies for Chicago art teachers to "shop" for supplies and materials to use in there classrooms. I'm hoping that between the photo and design departments we will be able to contribute a sizable donation and help continue to stir the future creative minds of Chicago students.
