Happy Father's Day to all you daddies out there =). I hope everyone is having a good weekend.I joined the Design Style Guide Etsy Street Team or the Interior Design Etsy Street Team, I'm not really sure what the official title is lol. But I do know it's pretty awesome. You get your own page on Ning, it's very well organized. I'm on a couple of other Etsy teams, well 1 other Etsy team. And I've been trying to get on another one, as far as I know I've taken all the necessary steps but they still haven't officially notified me of my status (I've been trying for a couple of months). This one is by far the most active, best organized though. I'm actually seeing a benefit to being on there other than just being able to say 'I'm on this Etsy street team or that Etsy street team'. They do treasuries using their members , they promote you to possible retailers, pretty awesome. So that's my big news for the weekend. I'm pretty psyched about it. I have to add DesignStyleTeam to the tags on all my photos though which is going to take 10 years since I have close to 170 now.

I'm going to go to my parent's today and hopefully gets lots of beautiful photos of their flowers etc. Happy Father's Day dad! I'm sure he doesn't read my blog lol (he may not even know what a blog is, hmmm) but just in case =).
I've decided I need to get a Kodak Duoflex camera asap. I hope I spelled Duoflex right. I'm going to actually take photos in the 'Through the Viewfinder' method instead of cropping them to be square. It seems more genuine somehow. Richard thinks it's kind of pointless because people really loved my stuff at the exhibit but I like the combination of old technology with new technology. The 'Through the Viewfinder' method is taking your digital camera and putting your old camera in front of it so that it takes the photo through the viewfinder of the old camera. I actually talked to a couple of people about it at the exhibit but they had never heard of it. Maybe it's a larger city thing or maybe it's an Etsy thing. I don't know lol. I have several old cameras that I had bought for that purpose but it doesn't work with them. I was a little disappointed. I'm going to go check on Ebay, you can get cameras pretty cheap there. Of course the ideal thing would be to come across one at a thrift store or garage sale and get it really cheap with no shipping but I don't really want to wait.
I'm doing a series of puddle reflections right now. They're all in the 'Rainy' section of my shop. I SO love doing these. I actually sold one a couple of days ago right after I uploaded it which was pretty cool. They are abstract and interesting. I really want to get them printed in a big size and frame them for our walls here. That would be awesome.

Thanks for checking in and a great Father's Day to all!
