Prints for Sale

Prints for Sale

I am selling prints of my photography to help with all the expenses for this move (including a new suitcase, appropriate clothes, and the first month rent/food/etc before I receive a pay check. A girl's gotta eat!).

I've selected some of my favorite and best artwork and have tried to make the prices both reasonable and still worth all the work I am putting into this.

I will also be having a little art show at my church so that the community can view the prints and place orders in person.

I am finally taking a big step with my photography! I hope it pays off. :) My dad even made business cards for me. sweet!

Yeah I am moving to Japan! (not sinking in)

Less than two months away! (not sinking in)

So much to do! (not sinking in)

How am I going to afford all of this? (not sinking in)

I need a TON of new clothes--a whole new wardrobe! (not sinking in)

How am I going to fit my life into two suitcases? (not sinking in)

Here is the comprehensive schedule of the last forty-eight days of my life in America... (Sinking. Like a massive, rapid, jagged rock--in my throat, ripping; in my stomach, aching.)

I am leaving, leaving,

Preparation Part 2: Cooking & Seaweed Bathing

I've explored Uwajimaya a few times now, trying to become vaguely familiar with what may be available to me in Japan.
Last time, my friend Thatcher bought me these Yamaimo Soba noodles, and I cooked about a third of them for a late lunch today. They were delicious! My sister added butter to hers, and I added cilantro which ended up tasting pretty delicious. :) I took a ton of photos (of course) and look forward to taking more as my cooking adventures continue!

Thatcher also bought me seaweed and instructed me to boil it and bathe in the broth... so I am off to try that one out! Apparently it is a Japanese beauty secret, or he just made it up, but either way I am excited to test it out. ;)
