curious and curiouser

I said I would post my finished photography collage project, so here it is! I may do a bit more work on it to age it but this is pretty much the final version.

they have benefit concert

This weekend has been absolutely crazy! We had the concert last night which was phenomenal. So many people came out to support us and we had an amazing time playing, it was so much fun. D.k. did an awesome job as our opener and all of my friends, family, and friends' family who helped out completely made the event possible. I am so thankful to have such great people in my life! I'm relieved that it is over and went so well, but sad that its done at the same time. Hopefully we can have another concert before the end of summer when everyone splits for school. Here are some pictures taken by my friend c.n. (unfortunately there weren't any good pictures of our drummer c.d. or lead guitarist a.b.)

it's so many miles but it won't be long

Ok so this is me keeping things up to date here. The current chaos of my life includes: cycling to Seattle in the Ride to Cure Cancer in just over a week, playing/organizing a benefit concert which is happening this weekend, currently in a condensed summer class for digital photography, and attempting to move to Vancouver for school this summer. Yikes. Tonight we had a dress rehearsal out of the shop where we practice and it went really well! Despite some minor disasters we ran into this week, it seems like things are finally all in place. Tomorrow we get the keys to the hall and can start setting up for our first legit concert. So exciting. It is looking like we will raise more than $1,500 for the Ride in this one event too which is spectacular. I am so grateful for everyone's help and glad that a lot of people want to come out and support us.

I took pictures yesterday of myself and Lydia for my next photography project which I am very excited about. It will involve many teacups, old books, and us ladies projecting out of picture frames on the wall. It is nice to have an excuse to play around in photoshop all day free of guilt. Going along with my love for everything vintage, we dressed accordingly. Here are some pictures we took outside in our outfits (k.y. makes a guest appearance when he came early to practice a song with me). I will post the finished photo soon!

p.s. this is my new hair color! looks super violet in this pic but is not so bright in real life. inspired by these beautiful ladies...
