Above is the flier for my upcoming show. I'm pretty pleased with how it come out. I think it looks great. Today I had a meeting with the three other artists in the show and after seeing everyone's work I think it's going to be awesome. I can't wait till the opening. For more information, such as the date of the show and etc, click on the image.

So Chaz and I have started a year long experiment called, "Consumer Whore No More". For this experiment we have decided not buy anything new for the next year. This means no video games, movies, CDs, clothes, shoes, home decor, etc. We started this experiment for a few reasons. First of all we want to see if we can actually do it but really we want to start appreciating the things we already have and to start saving more money while living less frivolously. In addition to not buying anything new we've also limited the amount of times we can eat out (which is the difficult part, for me at least). Here are the rules we made up:
What is NOT Allowed
-No new items
What is Allowed
-Groceries (we might invest in a CSA share this fall)
-Items required for school and/or artistic endeavors
-Gifts for others & each other (such as birthdays and Christmas)
-Accepting gifts from others & each other
Chaz - 18x per year
Chaz & Nina - 12x per year
Nina - 12x per year
-Thrift store/ 2nd hand
-Pet items as needed
-Important Home Improvements
-Preexisting magazine or online subscriptions but no re-subscribing once expired
-Recreational activities, such as the movies or bowling
-Anything that is not frivolous, unnecessary, or junk.
So, over the next couple months or so I might limit myself on how much time I spend on the internet since most of my time is spent looking at fashion/style blogs or on-line window shopping. It's probably best I don't tempt myself or make myself depressed. But overall I think we can do it and that this experiment will be good for us.
Wish us Luck!

From our Fourth of July festivities. I forgot to post these before. We had a nice time...grilled in the backyard and then shot off fireworks. Oh, and we watched 'The Fly' which was really gross and entertaining. If you haven't seen it you should.

Today I received a little package from my friend, Kenneth who I became friends with in college. He and I took photography classes together. He's been away for the summer and just as I was beginning to miss him I got such a wonderful surprise in the mail. As always, his package was full of little trinkets and treasures. Everything was wrapped so delicately and opening everything was such fun. Here are some images I took of some of the gifts inside...

Last night Chaz and I ate cookies and played scrabble with some friends. We had a pleasant time at their place. They have two adorable kids and two adorable cats. It was almost too much! I'm definitely looking forward to doing it again soon!
