The feedback from  The Garden has been amazing and non-stop.  We were so pleasantly  surprised that our bold idea to house a few weddings has turned into a full on business.  We’ve booked our first wedding for 2014 already! We find that exciting since 2013 will be the first year we are open for business.  We just want to thank everyone for the inquiries, kind words, unique articles, and all that jazz!  We are just getting started – for the winds are changing in a very wonderful way!

the weekend

In decorative arts, i made this on November 5, 2012 at 4:13 pm

I drove back to Vero Beach for the weekend to moonlight as a photographer for the Decorative Arts Apparel & My Family.  The Decorative Arts shoot  took place in the old diesel plant in Vero Beach, Florida (photos below).  We had this idea for chic design in an industrial setting and we nailed it!  Taking photos proved to be a lot of fun.  I’m not a photographer by any means – in fact, I was borrowing cameras left and right all weekend!   I like to think I can imitate what I see and what I like pretty well.   These shoots made me realize I need a serious camera   (sorry iphone!)

This may be the first year I really care about packaging.  Everyone appreciates a well wrapped present, right?  Isn’t crazy how we buy paper to throw paper away?  I stopped buying paper towels recently and started using my kitchen cloths more than usual.  They are just unnecessary to me right now … well that and general laziness of buying more!

I’m scheduled to take a drawing class soon ( well by summer ) and although I am deathly terrified it’s sprinkled with a little excitement.  Illustration is my favorite and I’ve been dying to actually form lines that don’t join edges of a star together.  The computer hinders my ability to even pick up a pencil and write my name without it looking like  a toddler’s hand writing.  I shake when I hold pens or pencils – which turns all my words into babble cursive.

A lot of people may be all like “There’s too much technology today!”  but the fact that I see one picture, LOVE IT,  search for similar ideas and find what I’m looking for in less than 20 minutes – makes me all fuzzy inside.  I love these rounded balloons.  May be for another style  shoot?
