Polite in Public

So last night i was roped into helping out my friend and old roomie with his photo booth. It is hard work, but so fun. Polite in Public is one of the coolest concepts for the new age photo booth, pair that with amazing photo skills and you end up with something that has a mind of its own. It all started at in the back yard at the compound, Joe Miller and Joe Rubinstein thought it would be fun to set up a photo shoot while having a party that everyone could participate in. And two years later here they are, with 8 photo booths touring the country, and a brand spankin new web site they are well on their way to having a very successful business that just happens to be so much fun.
So here are the pictures from last night, you can see the rest at

Here is me and mr. miller

There was the most awesome balloon guy at this event, he made this little bug for me.

So there you have it, they can make anyone look like a rockstar. you can check to see if they will be in your town on their web site. if you are in San Fran or New York then you are in luck, there are events this weekend.

A new chapter

I have to admit that these last few weeks have been a little rough. I feel like im ready to move onto something bigger and better. My brain is tired of thinking about and making trees right now. By no means does that mean that i am done making them, no way. But I need to do something else for a while. I have some pretty cool ideas that i want to make happen in the next week or so, and by writing this im hoping it will motivate me a little more into getting them done, lately ive just been staring at my lonely sewing machine sitting over in the corner.
I sort of took a break after Lightning in a Bottle, i realllllly burnt myself out so quickly with that project. i think i made a years worth of trees in about 3 weeks. Im also trying to re think my work space. My house is so small (800 sq. ft.) that i am crammed in the corner of my living room with no storage and very little table space. i feel like that is half my problem. Doesnt make for a very good "creative" space.
I think ive been to ikea 3 times looking for a good solution to this problem and left with nothing. Damn that Ikea. i swear they used to make a sewing table and some other craft related storage items.
If anyone has any good ideas, im totally open, i need my space to be better.

On another note. i need some wholesale accounts to go down. as of right now the only store you can find my trees in is the one i work at. Baby Cakes ( in La Canada. and quite frankly they are pretty irrelevant to the shabby chick nurseries going on in there. Ive been sending out emails every day to places that i think they fit well into, but i have had no responses. I struggle with the email writing that goes along with this. Being the only employee at Baby Cakes i know how many emails my boss gets bombarded with on a daily basis of people trying to sell her stuff. she just ignores most of them.
Meanwhile i need to come up with a different way of doing this. its not working.

There it is, i needed to vent.

This picture is from this past weekend, my gettin down with my awesome glow hoop.
