WORK/SHOP was a fantastic and inspiring event. I had such a pleasure meeting so many lovely people and getting to take their portraits using my make-shift, diy, silly little back drop. The artist in me felt sick to my stomach and overly critical throughout the process of putting this little back drop together, wishing I had a wider screen, and more fun props, but I got over that really quickly after seeing the joy in people's faces after photographing them. It was love and positive vibes all around. I feel grateful I got the chance to do this and to be amongst so many talented artists, like Bianca D'Amico of Chaparral Studio (she creates the most amazing terrariums/ jewelry / ornaments), and Kate Miss of For Me, For You. I was recently on her site and not only does she make really elegant jewelry ( Angie's fiance, Will, bought her this Kate Miss necklace not too long ago), but her photography puts me in that happy place. Humbled, dudes.
Thank you to all my friends who came to support me, and hang out. I feel loved x a million x infinity.....
Thanks to this kind man above. He always puts up with my stressful tantrums. I love you. OOOhhhh, and thank you, Stefani, for my pretty flowers! The irises are starting to bloom!
Lastly, I wouldn't have been able to do this without the help from my mother. She rocked it! xx

I'm happy with how nostalgic these polaroids look, although they took about 20 minutes to develop completely! It was a little nerve racking, but also kind of exciting(?) !!!
You never know what you are going to get from Impossible Project, but I am SO STOKED they exist. Polaroid Por Vida
This weekend I embark on a mini adventure. Until then...
