premiere photo fun

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

i can't believe that i am only just getting around to posting these photos! a little over a week ago we had a local premiere of our short film, the matchstick house. the premiere was fantastic. an estimated 100 locals were in attendance, which we thought was super for our first event! here are just some of the fun photos from that night.

obviously this experience has been a wild ride. i have learned so much about making a film, running a business and marketing... with, of course, much more to learn. i am so proud of my husband for chasing his dreams and look forward to our next film! 

i do love a good surprise

tis' the season to pop 'em out... or so it seems. so many of my friends are pregnant right now, including our very best friends! it is such a fantastic feeling to put my hand on her belly and feel her baby girl kick. there really is a baby in there! some of us from church decided to throw a surprise baby shower for the mommy and daddy to be.
as you can clearly see, they were completely surprised! such a beautiful moment.
since the shower was co-ed, we decided to forgo the traditional baby games. instead we played catchphrase and apples-to-apples. best baby shower ever.

the most wonderful time

what a daunting task to attempt filling you in on the past month of my life, but i will attempt it none the less. our short film, the matchstick house, is complete! well, mostly. we are going to hold a local premier on november 1st so, if you are in the phoenix, az area, you are more than welcomed to join! just email me for details.
my etsy shop, porter & piper {here}, is alive and well. i've gotten some great ideas cooking for a possible new year launch.. maybe before that?? we shall see. until then, i've got a lot of great stuff currently up in the shop available for purchase! {discounted slightly for the holidays.. woo!} 
husband and i are doing well! needless to say, with both of our ventures overlapping like this, we are darn busy. but busy is good. busy makes me feel so alive! we have a little getaway planned in the near future and are looking forward to it very much
and now, sweet, long-lost friend, i leave with with some photos from our porter & piper photo shoot {also.. that adorable babe is my niece!! i melt.}

i am so excited to announce that i've opened an etsy shop called porter & piper {here}! in the shop you will find baby quilts and decorative pillows! each quilt {and pillow} is made to order which means that i work with any color scheme! i am also pretty flexible with other aspects {price, shipping} so if you have questions, email me! 
please head on over to the shop, "like" it and share it with your friends! i appreciate your support! 
{and if you do head over, please let me know what you think!!}


filming for the matchstick house went beautifully, but it was a lot of work! after wrapping the shoot, we decided that we needed to take a brief getaway to prescott with our best friends! prescott, az is beautiful and is full of historic charm! since we went on labor day, downtown was packed with vendors selling all sorts of yummy treats. it was a blast!
