New Resolution

I had to blog about this incredible photographer I just found. Chelsea Wilde and her photography business, New Resolution Photography really stands out to me. I love fashion photography but her use of light and color is beautiful. I love the gritty vintage appeal. As a filmmaker, playful use of colors and light always appeals to me. I mean look at the reflection in the train case in the first photo, the elegance of the model in the third photo, and the gothic feel of fifth photo.

So do yourself a favor and check out New Resolution Photography for some beautiful work and especially if you are a Utah bride! Oh and please vote for this talented photographer in The Face of Smashbox contest (just search "Chelsea Wilde" for more photos and the vote button).

GRO rocks my socks off

I can't believe I haven't pimped this band out yet!! 

If you have been watching "So You Think You Can Dance?" or recall this band from the season finale of "The Hills" you make recognize Green River Ordinance. This band is incredible and it is exciting that they are starting to get recognition for their music. 

I have been lucky to follow this band for the past 4 years. They were regulars around my college campus and would sing during our sorority meetings a few times a semester to promote their gigs. I remember before I even started college I received a random message on myspace from them. After hearing one song I was hooked. After meeting a few band members I can tell you they are not only talent musicians but great guys too. 

Oh and did I mention they are going on tour with Gavin DeGraw this summer....he's another of my favorite musicians. It's a match in music heaven for me!

You MUST check out Green River Ordinance NOW! haha. Here are the necessary links that you need:

Craft Room

I desperately want a craft room. Currently my sewing table is in the middle of my bedroom and my computer desk is full of half finished projects. I am thankful I now have laptop because I have been forced to us it while I sit in my bed watching tv. Boxes are in the hall, the garage is full, etc etc. Yeah I need more space. While I don't think I will have my own craft devoted room for a long time I dream of what could be.

Getting Organized

So when I made this blog is was going to be so awesome and I was going to become a blogging celebrity.... ok maybe not. But I did hope that I it would be a success and I would write a lot. So far I have failed. I am alittle A.D.D. when it comes to projects so when I set up my etsy store shortly after starting this blog I forgot about it for the most part. 

So now I have decided to make some structure for this blog. I have little to no structure in my life as it is. Since I graduated college in Dec. my days have been spent in Etsy chats begging for sales and sewing. I have not worked as many jobs as I hoped (I blame the economy conviently) so my days are really lame. 

Now I am off to a fresh start....
I might be headed to NYC in August to begin Graduate school and start a new job (hopefully). It's about time that I get working.

Here is what the outline for the blog will be on a weekly basis. Note that since I am very A.D.D. with this I will NOT post everyday and I will NOT stick to this schedule lol!

Monday- My Etsy Shop Updates
Tuesday- Terrific Etsy Finds (Or general Web finds)
Wednesday - Wedding Wednesday
Thursday- Interior Design/Make the designs come to life with Etsy finds.
Friday- Friday Fashionista Style

Found this new seller on Etsy, ishandchi and I wanted to share her artwork. 

So be sure to check out ishandchi's etsy shop and her awesome blog here.
