I like to sew. I also like to take photos.

I am a perpetual student at both. I have a lot of ideas about how things should look, and am visually inspired.
I tend to be really zealous about one thing for a week, and jump to another the next. I will sew a ton, then I won't touch any fabric for a while, but I will pick up my camera, and so on. This past week I decided to gather some littles and put them in my sewn goods, and attempted to make some of my visions come to life. I don't have any big plans for the photos, I'm not sure when or where I will use them. More so it was this great exercise in creativity. A big, fat practice session of styling and shooting and it was so much fun.
 I had a scene very much like this in my head before we got started, so when this happened, this little interaction,  I was happy.  Visions becoming a reality give me a great sense of satisfaction.
My friend Kelley and her daughter, Giada came over for a play date/model sesh.  She even brought delicious snacks!  I'm telling you, it was a good day.  I'm going to try to do something like this again next week.  For now, these photos are for Giada's momma.  Thanks, Kelley!  Hopefully soon I'll make a little page with all my handmade goodies.  I'm glad I challenged myself.
