the little things
i have been complaining to david all weekend how i had to do work at work last week. my project manager has been working in the lab, leaving me little time to waste. ah well. only fair right? i sent along the lists to my mother-in-law and i am told she quite liked them! yay! now i can focus some time on actual making of things. i like the making, but i really like the packaging. you know. the papers, the strings, ribbons, tags, all that fun stuff. i need to get on the ball and order some things like those clear folding plastic sleeves and those nice glassine (?) paper sleeves that are good for photographs. do you all have a favorite place for your packing goods? i have been meaning to snoop out a little cake decorating store i saw months ago driving around a part of town i dont get to very often. i thought they might have some fun goodies. i would really like to get some of those white or brown folding paper boxes that sally uses. speaking of sally, she is the undisputed packaging queen in my book. love her.
oh and real quick. i shot a roll of agfa 100 film i got from my fall photo swap partner (thanks meaghan!) and i am in love. i mean just pretty much blew it all at the park one day. so much fun. got some great shots, and a strong contender for our christmas card. the photo above was one of the last few frames. i was leaving work on my long day (bleh) and i came out the back door to see this sky. i dropped everything, grabbed my camera and shot two frames (here is the other one). ah. i love it when that happens. when i see something great and have my camera with me. awesomeness.
