W O R D : a polaroid collaboration
it’s here! the book that jen and i have been working on arrived on monday. and i love it! i was worried i’d find a major typo or realize that the colors i chose wouldn’t work well in print form, but so far so good! i’m still a little in shock that i’ve got a book out, so i’m at a loss for words…

for those of you that pre-ordered on the W O R D website: thank you so much for your early support! your copy is already in the mail and should arrive before the week is up.

for those of you that pre-ordered on amazon: thank you, too! i’m packaging up the amazon inventory tonight, and you should have your copy by early next week.

for those of you not wanting to miss out, you can order your copy on the W O R D website, amazon, or my etsy shop.

thank you! xo

ps. the winner of the natural handmade goods idea book giveaway is comment #6, aimee!

polaroid collaboration : nostalgia

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

the twenty-fourth of twenty-four polaroid collaborations between me and the fabulous jen of scissors.paper.glue. we alternate picking a word, and on the last day of the month we each share our polaroid interpretation of that word.

august’s word was nostalgia:

jen : nostalgia

jen: my absolute favorite toys from childhood

me: the park & lake car wash sign hasn’t changed much in the last 30+ years — the colored balls were there when i was a child. driving by is bittersweet…

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

jen and i have exciting news to share! we’ve decided to self-publish a book celebrating the first two years of our polaroid collaboration, and we’re calling it W O R D. we’ve got a web site started (the address is polaroidsisters.com), and there’s even a blog! this month i’ll be scanning all our polaroids and getting our book ready for print. it’ll be available before the holidays! we’ll keep you posted on the progress, and will try to be active on the W O R D blog. we might be crazy to try this, but we’re pretty excited!

dear sara,

my tulips bloomed over the weekend, and i was so excited to see yellow! this is the only second year i’ve had the tulips come up, and i couldn’t remember what colors they were… after hunting for yellow over the winter, it’s such a joy to see yellow in nature again.

spring is really here, and life is good.

tulips
dear sara,

spring is here! in the short span of a week, the grass has turned green, my tulips have forced their way through the ground, my rhubarb and columbine have grown 2 inches, and the chives are sweet in a simple salad. after such an agonizing wait, it is spring, and i want to savor every minute of it. i hope spring has found salt lake city, too.

xo, me
