I returned home from work about 30 minutes ago to see a package on my coffee table. A birthday gift from my mom. This:
So what are they? The gifts are a kit from photojojo.com (really cool stuff, check them out!) and are a pinhole camera kit and sunprint kit (aka cyanotype for the photographic name). I haven’t done either of these processes since May of 2003. I’m so excited to get these and can’t wait until I have the time and energy to try these out. I’m actually sitting here rubbing my hands together with glee with a big smile on my face.
Sadly, It might be a few weeks until I can give them proper use. It’s 4:30 am here in Santa Cruz as I write this and I haven’t gone to bed yet. I’m currently working at a retail/service related company and we’re super swamped with xmas business. Until after the holidays I’ll be working, working, working (getting those overtime hours in hence the late night). So for now it’s work, sleep, eat, run 3x week, repeat. Work will slow down soon enough.
Anyhow… Mom, I love the gift, thanks!
Off to bed.
PS. Birthday yes? My thirtieth! I think I’m one of the few women who are actually glad to be getting out of their twenties.
