Assignment 18

Steven, Kirsten, Magnolia (modeling a Say Ooh bowband), and I made our teenage posters. Enjoy.


An Oxford Wedding

Weddings. I love them. The excitement of new futures, pouring over pretty little details, the opportunity to throw a huge party that reflects who you are as a couple in love. I'll take any involvement, for friend or stranger. Last May in Oxford, my sweet friend Marcie married her love, Aaron. I was honoured to make the accessories for these lovely ladies.

All of the wedding details and decorations were casual, beautiful, and exquisite. The photographers captured the wedding fabulously, and it will be featured this season in Weddings Unveiled. Thrilled about this!

PS It's my dream to someday leave my wedding ceremony on a tandem bicycle... (or a white horse)


Assignment 18

A couple years ago, my friend Amanda gave me the book "Learning to Love You More" by Harrell Fletcher and Miranda July. I like the way these people think, and create. It's very important to have a balance of the two, as opposed to the unfortunate laziness of just one. Anyhow, we'd planned to do some of these assignments together, but never did. I hope she will join in on these projects.

Each week, I will pick an assignment, and you, my readers will have 7 days to complete it if you so choose. Simply sayooh@gmail.com me photos of your sparkling creations. I'll post mine too (but hopefully they won't stand alone).

18: Recreate a poster you had as a teenager.

Remember a poster you had on your wall as a teenager. If necessary, do a little research to help you remember exactly what it looked like. Then recreate it using colored pencils or pens or paint on white paper. Scale it down to make it fit on a regular piece of paper. Next, locate a piece of music that you would have listened to at the time when you had this poster. If you are currently a teenager, just use a poster and piece of music that you have right now.
