Vegas Baby!

Tonight I'm heading to Las Vegas to celebrate one of my best friend's birthday. I haven't been to Vegas in a while so I can't wait to go. I did some shopping and got Rosa a gift. I decided to get a little creative in the wrapping department- somewhat of a practice for Christmas- and got out paper bags and washi tape. This is what came out of it:

I added the crocheted flower for more appeal. Well, I better get back to packing, cleaning and laundry before I leave. Hope you enjoy your weekend.

How cute are these X-Mas labels?! They are free to download thanks to My Paper Crane. It's a unique alternative to regular store bought tags.

At the Park

I did a shoot a few weeks ago for Lily who is turning 1 along with her sister. I just finished editing the photos and here are some of my favorites.

 It ended up being a rainy day but we made the best of it.

I'm so excited about getting more photo jobs lately and I'm also currently working on my new business cards. I'm really looking forward towards the new year where hopefully things will take off.

Christmas is fast approaching and no sign of Christmas cheer at home. All of my decorations are still in storage and really have no desire to decorate. I barely had enough enthusiasm to decorate the tree at work. That's pretty sad. Luckily, one of my best friends bought me a live 5ft Doug Fir tree. I pick it up on Saturday. I really don't want to buy more ornaments so I figured I could buy lights at the dollar store and make all of the tree ornaments myself. I searched high and low through the internets for ideas and I think I found some pretty good ones.
 Printable Ornaments from Wild Olive
I also have a few ideas of my own which I will show later when I get started on them. Now I can't wait to get started.

"I Adore..." Tuesday

Hi all. It's been a while since I've been around and there's been a slight interruption with my Motel Polaroid Mondays. I ran out of my good film and ordered more through The Impossible Project. It's some sort of color shade film and I'm having trouble exposing for it. Womp womp womp. I will continue this project as soon as I can get more film or learn to expose it, whichever comes first. Anywho, here are 5 new things I adore this fine Tuesday.

This cute paper-stitched place cards tutorial

This lovely space
Have a wonderful Tuesday.

Feature Friday

I know I've been behind on posts or at least the feature posts. I guess I gets random bursts of inspiration here and there. Well, today at work Shiri Appleby came by to purchase hardware. I tend to get really weird around celebrities especially when I'm a fan. Today, I hid in the back until she went away. Yeah, weird!

Anywho, today I will feature Here's Looking at Me Kid. Mandi's blog is super inspiring when it comes to fashion and home decor. I love her apartment and her wardrobe posts.

Stop by and visit her blog and Etsy shop. She sells wonderful vintage clothes at reasonable prices.
Enjoy your weekend!

Just a quick post to show you my costume for Halloween.
Joe and I were Amish. A friend took a Polaroid of us at night with  PX/600 film. I didn't expect it to come out this way but it suits the occasion. We look ghostly, don't we?

Day of the Dead

I spent my Saturday at the Hollywood Cemetery celebrating Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead. It's the Mexican Halloween where people honor and remember the lives of loved ones that have passed. The festival was amazing and I can't wait to go next year. This is the first time I've gone to one of these events, and I can't wait for next year.

"I Adore..." Tuesday

I'm a little late in posting this but here we go, 5 new things I adore:
 This cute dress from Peppermint Vintage
This unique ring
I collect unique salt & pepper shakers and these are pretty perfect
This unique cat scratching post
And I love this tea mug, although I'm a bigger fan of coffee.
Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday!
