2012 calendar love – part 2 of 2

28 Oct

Did you fall in love with a calendar yet? I’ve gathered a few other favorites to share. In no particular order…

This calendar begs to live on my kitchen wall.

Too cute – I could see these images framed in a nursery (but still mature enough to grace your office wall).

This is almost too easy. Each year Paper Source comes out with a fab original calendar. This is their 2012 version.

One of my favorite Twitter and Instagram accounts, Kate Spade just makes me happy. This calendar does it’s job – and makes me love my Kate Spade even more.

The last one isn’t EXACTLY a 2012 calendar – it’s a birthday calendar. My grandma Verda has one, and she manages to remember EVERY SINGLE BIRTHDAY with the help of this calendar. Me, I rely on Facebook, and sometimes miss birthdays of those I love. I’m hoping that this fairly-adorable birthday calendar helps me to be better at birthdays.

That’s it… for now!

Our DIY Photobooth

11 May

We (well, I) really like the idea of having a photobooth at our reception. I looked into renting one, for about 30 seconds. I cannot stomach the thought of spending $2,000 to have someone haul in a fun prop for 2 hours.

My sister has friends in art school, one of whom is a photographer. We’ve contracted her work for 2 hours for a low fee. We’ll provide the backdrop and props, she’ll provide the photos. even if they aren’t smashing, how can you complain at a pricetag of less than $150?

Here’s what we’ve got so far:

Of course we’ll have more props (to be shared in a future post). Here’s hoping our guests enjoy and take advantage of it!

Here are just a few of the photos we got out of the photobooth.

p.s. if anyone wants the name of a photography student who might be willing to help out with your DIY photobooth, and you live in Minneapolis or Saint Paul, drop me an e-mail.
