Getting Back to Film

Film photography has been a hobby of Derek and mine’s for the past 4 years. Up until this year, I’ve been using toy lomography cameras to fuel my film obsession. We use to share those photos through a tumblr blog called Yellow Polka Dots. Between us, we have a Diana Mini, a regular Holga, a […]

Calligraphy Class

Two weekends ago I drove up to D.C. and took a pointed pen calligraphy class taught by Michele of Meant To Be Calligraphy. Although I’ve been playing around with calligraphy for over a year, I just wasn’t where I wanted to be with my skill and technique. When I first discovered Michele’s class, I was […]


Below are several photos from a recent calligraphy job. I’m still new at the craft but I’ve been growing steadily and will continue to practice, practice, practice. Derek actually found the nib that I used for this job at the Brooklyn Flea and I quickly fell in love with it! It’s a G. W. Woolley […]

what a weekend!

This past weekend Derek and I took part in the Alchemy NFK event that took place during Better Block Norfolk. For just two days on a two block stretch of Granby Street in Norfolk, the community rejuvenated life into an almost forgotten area. I can’t begin to tell you about all the lovely folks who […]

The Studio

This weekend we finally got around to taking some much needed photos of our studio space! We also managed to captured a few of life’s silly moments. By the way, that’s my pug, Petunia, in the second to last photo. She was great at keeping my chair warm.

Knitted Elephants

It’s Practically Here…

Christmas is tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited! I hope everyone is spending tomorrow with family, friends and good food. I just wanted to share a few of my favorite DIY’s from the season. First, I jumped on the winter terrarium idea. I loved Ashley Ann’s waterless snow globes so much and just had […]

December is here!

I can’t believe it’s already December! I’ve been getting into the holiday spirit which means I have a long list of craft/knitting projects I want to complete. This past weekend, Derek and I were at a thrift store and stumbled upon these 70′s felt ornament kits. Derek got excited immediately because his mother made those […]

Hello Fall

For the first time in Virginia, we’re starting to get a taste of Fall and I love it! Although this past Saturday was warmer than usual, it didn’t deter Derek and me from going to the Fall Festival in Newport News. There were the usual sights: barnyard animals including some Alpacas, pumpkins, kettle corn, a […]
