First up, the good news! I applied to be on the design team for Work In Progress. I really love their kits and their site. You have to check them out! I actually have them bookmarked under Inspiration and not Kit Clubs!! LOL! Anyway, I didn't make the team but they did give me an honorable mention. Pretty cool, huh? :D
Also, my laundry room looked like this last night.
It now looks like this!!! :D
Dry wall, baby! They are coming to appply another coat of goop(technical term) and then hopefully sanding tomorrow afternoon and applying texture. That means we can paint when we get back from SunRiver on Sunday and then move the water heater back in. Yep, I am without hot water at the moment. Fortunately, mom's house is empty and nearby!
My other good news is that I've got my first wedding gig! My husband's best friend is getting married 8-8-08 and the bride to be, Karen, didn't want to hire some stranger to boss everyone around while taking pictures. So, I told her that I'd be sure to take lots of pictures since she didn't have an official photographer. Jackie (our hostess for the Fourth) suggested she "hire" me for the job. Karen was all over it and I think it's pretty cool, too. I'm just going to take a ton of candids and any formal shots that she or the families want. It will be kind of like my cousin's wedding when the pro couldn't make the reception because of an emergency.
So, now for the RAK. I really want to do a good, no make that GREAT job for Ron and Karen. I need your help! Please give me your best outdoor wedding photography tips. Or, if you don't have any link to your favorite wedding photographers site. If you don't have one just tell me what you think of "Candidly, Erica" as the name for my not-quite-a-business name. I'll pick a name from the comments on Sunday and send that person this!
