my non-traditional portfolio
my super creative friend briana moore owns larkmartin & co. it's just the cutest little shop right here in downtown hot springs. there is something new in there every time i go --- lots of handcrafted goodies from local artisans, and of course deliciously aromatic handmade soaps, candles & lotions, created by briana herself. i love walking into her sunshiny store, and i was absolutely delighted at the opportunity to display some of my latest work in her shop. while i'd originally planned to create a traditional book of my photos for display, i decided instead to go for something something a little less....yawn-inspiring. i simply loved this idea from the "design aglow" website. i had some wire cut at lowe's, which i braced into loops at the top and bottom, attached them to wall hooks, then used heavy magnets to display my "portfolio". i can change out photos when i have a new batch of faves, which seems to happen every couple of weeks! the "extras" sit patiently in an old cigar box, waiting to be shuffled through by larkmartin customers. i love the way they turned out. thanks to amy herndon photography for forwarding me the "design aglow" link. what an inspirational (and highly addictive) site! and of course, thanks to briana, for allowing me to share my passion with hot springs shoppers!
