Tiffany Hall Designs saved Valentine’s Day

Handcrafted gifts are the best. Unfortunately, my hands are only good at typing and twisting the barrel of a lens. That’s why I enlisted the help of my friend, Tiffany Hall, to help me make the perfect gift for my Valentine this year. After some quick decisions, she was on her way in making a beautifully polished, black precious stone necklace that in my opinion, balanced elegance and class. You could wear it with jeans, or with a dress, which was why it was such a savior. The necklace completed Lucy’s little black dress right before we went to dinner. Thanks Tiffany! Check out her other work at Tiffany Hall Designs.

First annual MDA Muscle Walk was a huge success!

First, I wanted to say thank you to all my friends and family members that supported me in beating my $500 goal. We not only beat my goal, but I also received contributions from 10 people. Even if you didn’t donate, spreading the word and passing the message along helped too. In total, the event raised $62,000 towards research and program costs that battle more than 100 different forms of muscle disabling diseases.

If you didn’t know, MDA in Washington is partnered with some of the leading institutions that fight diseases and cancer including University of Washington Medical Center, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research, Seattle Children’s and the SCCA. The money is being put to good use. Once the code has been cracked with this disease, it’s going to help eliminate a lot of pain, struggle and heartache many families like ours face today.

I wanted to also say thank you to SmugMug for sponsoring my campaign by providing me with free prints for the posters and postcards that I will be sending to my generous donors. SmugMug is my online gallery and printing service for KVW Photo and has provided an amazing service for me and my clients for the past two years. If you’re ever in need of a reliable, friendly, affordable printing solution, check them out. I couldn’t be more happy with my experience with them.

Fundraising for the 2011 Muscle Walk Northwest

Philanthro has been a great experience so far, but I also wanted to highlight another aspect of philanthropy that I am a part of. I recently joined as a member of the newly formed Muscular Dystrophy Association’s Young Professional Committee, or MDA YPC for short. Crazy acronyms rights? Well the short story is that this amazing national organization has started a new YPC to expand the influence MDA already has within the Washington state community. It’s an expansive network of people with an even more amazing history of support for families who need an extra helping hand.

The YPC’s first participating event is the 2011 Muscle Walk that is happening on Saturday, February 12th at Qwest Field. Our team’s goal is to fundraise $500, but I’m making $500 a personal goal of mine. I’ve already had two generous donations totaling to $150. With two weeks to go, I’m hoping you can help me get there soon. Contributions from $1 to $10 or more are all welcome. There’s never too little to give. If you can’t give, that’s okay! But please pass the word on.

All donations will receive a custom postcard just as a thank you. Donations over $50 will receive a 20×30 print enlargement. See what it looks like below.

Get me up to $500!

Hand crafted planner by one fine dae

It was nearing the holiday season and I wanted to give something a little special for Lucy on Christmas. I had the idea of finding her the perfect personalized planner. She always mentioned how there weren’t enough monthly planners in the world and since it was the start of a new year, it seemed to make the most sense. Luckily, instead of shopping around Target, Barnes and Noble, Papyrus, or some other craft store, I asked my dear friend Linda to help me make something.

With a few art directions on color, content and materials, Linda used her creative mastery to put together a beautiful spiral bound planner that to this day, remains empty. It’s so nice that Lucy isn’t quite ready to write in it. Check out the photos of Linda’s work, the artist behind one fine dae. Thanks again Linda!

Happy Holidays!

I hope everyone had a great holiday season with loved ones close by. My family and I all wish you a happy holidays! Just like every holiday season, it’s mostly about the kids and watching my niece and nephew grow up more each year just means there are more chances to introduce them to more hobbies like art. As you can see below, I’m getting the kids started on photography (surprise!). Just look at his form. It’s perfect! Now if only the Lumix had a real viewfinders…
