PROPAGANDA: INDEPENDENCE FOR SCOTLAND

On this beautiful Independence Day here in the USA, I feel like it’s important to talk about the upcoming referendum in Scotland on September 18th 2014. If I could vote in this national referendum, which poses the question “Should Scotland be an independent country?” my vote would be a resounding yes! Or as we say back in Scotland, “Aye!” I’m so excited for the referendum¬†even if it doesn’t pass quite yet, I think it’s wonderful that the question is being {Read More}

CATCHING UP

It has been a while since I’ve posted, so much has happened in the last month and a half.

PHOTOGRAPHING ART

This was a fun project and definitely a challenging one, especially since it wasn’t even a painting to begin with. As you may recall it was a very sun bleached paper print on {Read More}

MOTH UP & MACRO MADNESS!

I have briefly¬†mentioned¬†that my friend,¬†Mosa, hosts regular MothUP story parties in her living room. What I didn’t mention is what an amazing hostess Mosa is. Each and every time I’ve been to one of her story telling parties, there has been a different kind of cocktail and there’s always a wonderful spread of dips and hors d’oeuvres, and usually something with lots of cheese and some sort of sweet treat like homemade red velvet mini cupcakes. It’s a wonder any {Read More}
