Vintage Valentine

Vintage-Valentine-236.jpg

A few weeks ago I had the spunk in me to ask two of my favorite creative friends to collaborate on a project….it came as a random idea of something fun to do in the dead of winter and turned into something so much more that I had ever expected. Bethany from b*spoke, whom I have known since college and traveled across the oceans with, along with Dena, another friend from college and all around crafty girl who is an unbelievable graphic designer, both decided to help me on this wild endeavor that I had casually suggested via e-mail one afternoon. Little did I know that the combination of our three creative brains would be so much fun and rewarding! :)

We got together one afternoon to brainstorm, think and try and see if this was even possible to pull off in the matter of 2 weeks! And man did our brains start to spin. Beth posted some behind-the-scenes photos and thoughts on her blog today of where, why and how to this little Valentine weekend of fun came together!

This styled shoot, much to our surprise, got posted on Style Me Pretty earlier this week with raves coming from many many people. It was overwhelming. And awesome. Getting encouragement from people you don’t know, people you have just met and having the feeling that you are doing something worth while in your life is so rewarding. I am not trying to argue that styling a shoot is my life’s goal, but rather living with creativity, laughing with friends and doing what I love is becoming more evident to me as time passes.

I have to say a GINORMOUS shout out to the amazing vendors that helped us, loaned us items and gave us some trust to come along side us:
