New Year, New Work and a Goal.

It's been a while since I've updated the world on my work recently.  The past week and a half has been insanity, leaving school and attending Casey and Jeremiah Schlotman's wedding, finding myself in a surprising position to have to help shoot the wedding because of ridiculous weather problems.  Helping out was a huge learning experience, using Casey's equipment which is amazing but was unfamiliar.  I haven't even been able to see the pictures yet (long story) but I think it turned out okay.

It was quite the learning experience and I'm really glad I was there to be able to help out.

Since then, I've taken a little bit of time of thinking of photography.  I did some crafty work, making hair clips of fabric rosettes.  I got inspired by the craft gallery we had at school and tried my hand at it.  They are really simple and I am pleased with the results.

Also.  Today I took pictures of my dad.  He is a woodworker.  He loves making model boats.  I think in some ways that he imagines he is making real boats when he works on the tiny boat parts.  This particular model boat he's been working on since he was in high school.  Talk about a long-term project!  I wrote a poem about this once.  I'm not sure exactly where it is right now otherwise I would include it.  For now, enjoy the pictures.

The other thing is that I have revamped the design for my website.  I hope to have it up and running in the next two days.  I liked the design for my zen garden site that I did a while back so I reused the graphic I made and am using it for my website.

Here's a preview!

I like imagining that part of your house and him in that room actually lit up

Oh my gosh! I love those pictures of your dad so much. And the hair clips are incredible. And your website looks amazing. I can't wait to see it up and running.

You're wonderful.
