tree talk

I keep hearing
tree talk
water words
and I keep knowing what they mean.

These beautiful tulips were a surprise from my dear friend Jenni, in celebration of the studio opening. Even though she couldn't be there in person, she was there in she always is.

studio opening!

OK OK, so it's not a photo...but I did come up with the design, does that count?? ;o)

Back in August I joined forces with four lovely ladies (and crazy-talented photographers to boot) to create Studio 204, our very own photography studio and gallery space in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District. After several months of building, painting, decorating, and wine, we are finally ready to open our doors and welcome our friends and families to the space!

Fresh-brewed beer, acoustic soul/blues, tasty hors d'oeuvres, artwork on display...sounds like a pretty great evening to me.

Music starts at 7PM, hope to see you there! ;oD
