The Impossible Project

I hope everyone had a laid back Thanksgiving holiday. I spent my day goofing off at the beach with my mom and then traveling around to celebrate with loved ones. Luckily for me, I didn't have a long commute. 
 This summer I decided to stop at a garage sale down the street and found a Polaroid SX-70 presto camera for $1. I was talking with my photo friend Eric about how I wish I could test the camera to see if it was still in working condition. He told me about The Impossible Project and that I could still get film for my camera! For those of you still dreaming of shooting with your Polaroid, check out the instant film they make.

For Halloween I dressed as Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I decided I wanted to be Belle from the beginning of the movie where she is wearing her blue peasant dress. I didn't have much luck locating this costume in a costume store.
I found this dress on sale in the juniors department at Macy's. I picked up dish towels at TJMAXX and some white gross grain ribbon. My mom helped me use her iron on adhesive to create an apron for the outfit. The book and basket were borrowed and I already had the shoes. The whole costume cost me less then $20. I was a very happy camper. I had a lot of fun "making" my own costume this year for Halloween!

I took over 3,200 photos on my trip in Kauai. I'm narrowing them down to my top 150-200 photos and post a few of my favorites here. I have some fun stories to share and a lot of catching up around here. I'm very excited about the holiday season kicking off. Happy Black Friday!
