I’m sure I say this all the time but I really needed this vacation. Spent the four nights in company of good friends and great music and I couldn’t be happier! Here are some photos of some DJs that I got to see last weekend, all at Marquee in the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Excuse the blurry photographs – they were all taken with my phone and it doesn’t perform the best in low light situations.
That’s my weekend in a nutshell. Hope you all had a great weekend!
Just got back from Vegas, and I am so. incredibly. exhausted. But ohmygawd I had the time of my life. Here’s a little preview of my weekend – I’ll post up the rest of the pictures later. For now, I’m going to catch up on my RSS feeds, all the shows I missed the last 4 nights I was gone, and catch up on some zzzz!
Recently I discovered photographer Dylan Forsberg and fell in love with his work. Here are some photos from his blog that I particularly enjoyed..
I love his use of natural light. I also love how raw his images are. Nothing crazy fancy, it is what it is and I enjoy that. All of these photos make me wonder what they are thinking, and when that happens, to me, that photo becomes important. If you can take a photo has the ability to make someone stop and think for just one second, then you’ve created a photo with impact.
Saying farewell with a quick photobooth creation – I’m headed to Vegas for the next couple of days! I was there 3 months ago; why does it feel like it’s been forever? Will be back with some pictures. Have a great weekend!

I found this DIY on Honestly…WTF a couple of months back but never got off my ass to actually make one. A friend and I were bored one day and finally got around to making some! You can find a more detailed how-to on honestlywtf.. but here’s how mine turned out!
I bought the twine at walmart for about $3 and the hex nuts (they were actually labeled “Machine Screw Nuts”) were purchased at Home Depot for a box of 100 for about $3. I couldn’t find any brass colored ones at my local Home Depot so I picked up some spray paint in a brass metallic finish, also for $3. Split the costs with a friend so the materials ended up costing me about $5 total. 😀
Spray painted those suckers, braided them into the twine.
