Meet the Hens

Introducing Mimolette and Lady Rene (completely adorable pieces of work). This photo was taken a couple of days ago and it's unbelievable how much they have grown since. I have a feeling you shall be seeing more of them, and our giant backyard chicken pen we're building. I can't wait to show you the free vintage door I found for it too. Viva la Craigslist.

all that sparkles

 Something about glitter and flowers made sense today.

Flutter sparkles:
My Kolva Gallery opening went swimmingly last week. I had such a lovely time! There will be photos coming shortly - but until then, you shall be tempted by glitter photos from the most enchanting of cement floors.

The flowers:
Our yard is irresistible right now. So many things are blooming and the poppies have arrived in full force. We actually planted tons of different types. I am hoping for waves of color through out the next few months. OH - and peonies soon soon!!!

In other news:
I am starting my chicken coop fence this weekend. I found a most delightful vintage door free off Craigslist which will be used instead of a gate. My dad is driving over to help. I can't wait to be able to post baby chick photos! Eeeek, such goodness to come.

I wish you a sunny lovely weekend! ♥

I finally get to share with you our film we made for the 50 hour slam a while back. I had to sit on it for two months which was ridiculously hard!

I feel like we all bonded so much in such a short weekend. Chris Dreyer and I ended up with a tiny crew of extremely talented friends. Tiffany and Justin, two of the main actors ended up recording all the music for the film with the help of a friend at my work. They had never really played together before, and we had no idea what our film would be about at the time.

Not only did we get a fantastic topic....a lovely little tune as the inspiration for the film - but it happened to be a song by friend and fellow blogger Karli of Rough Gems. The other two mandatory items were the line of dialog, and including a statue on the Spokane Statue walk.

We shot the thing on my digital camera (d-5000), and the dream sequences on my little Japanese toy camera, the Digital Harinezumi 2.

You can check out the other films from the fest, some of which are wonderful and others a little hard to get through.

Also, we wouldn't mind at all if you wanted to vote for 'Golden' - http://www.50hourslam.com/2011/vote
