three potato four

these folks do charm like no one else. I kinda am having crazy dreams about the cafeteria seating it might be a problem very soon.

love of ampersands

I love ampersands so much I gave them their own board. contemplated a tattoo a few months ago, I think I'm too chicken. Maybe when I'm 50 and I know for sure I still love them.

Oré Originals

like with any job somedays are more fun than others. I just wrapped up a shoot for my client Oré Originals. This was our last shot [photographer Eric Hameister is up, literally in the rafters to get overhead] with crew, talent and many a food prop already snarfed before the last click of the day. The most fun [and exhausting] of weeks! It's moments like these that I cherish my work.

Finger Jello

I'm elbow deep in Jello right now. Kids catalog shoot this week. Have you ever had Finger Jello? You can pack it in a lunch box it doesn't melt. 1970's trickery I tell you! My mom use to make this for us when we were little so I called her and got the recipe.

3 - 3 OZ packs of jello whatever flavor
4 - individual packets of Knox unflavored gelatin.
4 - cups of water

I particularly wanted to make it into Mega Block Lego Shapes [top image]...but it didn't go so well. Even spraying them with PAM I had to wedge them out with a skewer. But silicone ice cube trays from ikea worked like a charm [and really are a better size for eating] I also sprayed the trays with PAM to get them out.

Voliá mini fish and star Jello shapes. The flower tray is especially cute and the perfect button of Jello.

photos from INSTAGRAM did you notice I finally got it connected to the blog? [button on left hand side]
