back on polyvore...

so it seems that with the level of productivity currently required of me on the rise... my propensity for distraction is as well...

a couple of months ago i started an online shopping binge in an attempt to find the "perfect dress" to wear to the wedding of my very dear friend... alas, i was not able to find a dress that would in any way simultaneously meet the needs of the occasion as well as our change purse, which was just fine because my sister loaned me one that was simply ideal...  however, i seem to have gotten myself into quite a little ritual of visiting certain sites on a frequent (much more than close to necessary) basis.

in an effort to distract myself and hopefully put an end to the online shopping habit... here are a couple of my favorites and a couple of sets i created on polyvore...

two wheeler and all seasons shirt dresses
from anthropolgie

photogenic and scavenger hunt dresses
from modcloth

i want to wear this set to work...

this set was created solely so that i could enjoy those tweed shorts! i am in the mood to wander in a faraway city, sit at a corner cafe and sip tea, and take pictures to my heart's content!

my momma told me the other day that she believes that we like clothing as much as we do because it enables us to create and utilize our artistic drive on a daily basis. therefore, in order to justify indulging this habit just this once... i am not shopping, i am creating!

i really do have a lot to do which will show up on the blog over the next few weeks so i must get to work! 

grace and peace,

the babies are coming...

no, this post is not about the plethora of newborns making their debuts in and around our family these days, although i could blog sufficiently about my excitement to meet each and every one (chris and i counted - there are eleven)... no, this post is about another group of babies whose arrival i have been anticipating...

 yes, that is right - the babies movie opens in just over a week and i am thoroughly excited...

note that this excitement is not in a biological clock sort of way, but in an i am interested in global mother baby health sort of way! not to mention i just adore focus films and the creative feast that is served with each film...

i cannot wait to see it (we might actually pay full price for this one!) and i definitely cannot wait to see the reactions of all of our expecting friends... so i suppose if you have not already caught my enthusiasm you should go see it for yourself, if for no other reason than to support a film that seems like it will be a full fledge celebration of life (which we could certainly use more of)! 

grace and peace,


ps. - update: (i love that my update is the postscript) wedding season has begun and though this semester has not been conducive to updates i have plenty to post! more on the way for sure!

lost things by angela kohler and ithyle griffiths

there are no words... this is amazing. angela kohler you are officially one of my new favorite artists! i have always been a big fan of stop motion (hearkening back to childhood affinities for claymation) and this video featuring alison sudol of a fine frenzy  is awesome!

happy viewing!
