Ohmigosh you guys I feel like such a jerk. Not about leaving you high-and-dry the last few days – there was a family thing and I had to leave town last-minute, I couldn’t help that – but because I double-booked today. Like a total jerk. And the sweet person helping me loses out because I have to do the other thing. Argh. I’m so mad at myself. And here I was, all happy and excited to show you this:
Actually, I’m still pretty excited about that. I’ve been obsessed with the idea of bringing a bright poster of agate or quartz into the kitchen – we’ve got an empty navy wall above the stove, and I think the contrast will be so awesome. With a simple, gold frame? Shut up. So anyway, I was seeing a lot of images I liked online, but the prints were nowhere to be found. And I didn’t think it was right to steal someone else’s work and have it printed up, poster-size, for myself (or rather, I didn’t think it was right to do that and then show it off on the internet). So I thought I’d give it a go myself. And yes . . .
I PHOTOGRAPHED THAT.
And I’m a pretty lousy photographer. Thank you so much for the help, Photoshop! And you know what is so cool about this? It’s just a plain-ol’ rock off of the ground. I grabbed it at my mother-in-law’s house in Phoenix, before heading to the airport, thinking it might work. And holy cow, now I’m a dang rock photographer. Don’t believe me?
This is what it looked like before I started getting that awesome gold to come through. Amazin’. I can’t wait to have it printed up and framed!
