WeDDinG ReCePTIon*

I met this cute couple two weeks ago photographing their wedding reception. Joanna and Andy got married in California last month and had a reception here in Denver to celebrate with friends and fam. They rented this really great loft downtown and had so many great people come to celebrate with them. It was really fun, I spent yesterday editing over 130 images from the fun event. Today... laundry, draw, edit photos, dinner with v... perfect way to end a productive weekend. :)
Hope you're having a lovely weekend.

I love these... and totally want to learn how to do it. I started collecting papercut silhouettes over a year ago and now have quite the collection. I'm in love with these.... source
I love elsita's papercuts. Vito bought me one last year for Christmas and it's really beautiful.
Hope your week is going well.

I LOvE...>>

this book. I got sooooo much inspiration from it last year. This book has so many fun patterns and designs I LOVED doing studies from it in 09. But now i need something new! I've been kicking off 2010 by doing some fun drawings but I'm needing inspiration. What's been inspiring you!? I'm working on putting some original drawings in my etsy shop, hopefully i'll be finished with them next week. I'll let you know!
We watched a good basketball game last night and enjoyed some yummy take-out. It was -2 degrees this morning when I woke up so I'm looking forward to spending a weekend by the fire.Enjoy your weekend. Stay warm!

LasT NiGHt i....

put my apron on and made a delish dinner! I made a new gnocchi nicoise dish that was delightful. Lots of fresh veggies, tomatoes, olives, bacon, beef and gnocchi...Such a fun night. Listening to good music, drinking good wine and hanging with my favorite boy. I can't believe it's already Wednesday! This week back to work is flying by... xo

My friend Ella refinished my old dresser a few months ago and I've finally gotten around to snap a couple pics of it. In the late afternoon it looks almost brown... but in the mornings it's a really pretty red.I got this dresser from my sister-in-law over 10 years ago. It was in desperate need to be refinished and I really love how it turned out.
Happy MoNDaY!

I finished my little quilt I started while we were in Idaho for Christmas. I wanted to get it done to give to Roma at New Years.. it turned out really cute.Also, sewed Roma this super cute little dress. She won't be able to wear it for quite some time but at least she can grow into it. She did finally grow into this! I sent Heather some screenprinted onesies after she was born and she's just now fitting into them. So cute! We ALL had such a relaxing time at the cabin. Vito cooked great meals, we played fun games and I got to spend time with this pretty mama.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Back to work for me tomorrow... I'm looking forward to it.

Our New Years trip to the mountains was so peaceful. I woke up earlier than the others our first morning and decided to wrap up and go for a long hike. It was so cold and wonderful.
I found a game trail and started following it enjoying all of the light and reflections. It was so peaceful to only hear the crunching of the snow and my heavy breath. I saw a (very large) friend.
Three days with really great friends was just what I needed. It was such a great way to start the New Year. We talked about our dreams and goals for the New Year and how grateful we were to have each other. It was really beautiful.
