Diana mini camera :: 35 mm film

Posted on | Monday, July 19, 2010 | 3 Comments

A few moons ago, my big sis, Amy, got this nifty Diana Mini camera for me. I'm finally kind of getting the hang of it. It's a little tricky but definitely fun when you get it to work properly. It shoots half frames and square frames from 35mm film. You can do double exposures too. I "wasted" about 2 rolls trying to figure it out with only a few salvageable shots, but the last roll didn't turn out half bad. I was a little sad though, because the film kept advancing but it wasn't actually taking shots toward the end, and I had Amy take some shots at a recent shoot and only 1 image was really taken (boo! but I need to figure out what went wrong). Anyhow, some of the images that did develop were from a hiking trip Matt and I took to Silver Falls a month or two ago. Here are some results:







Last one taken by Amy from the shoot.
Aw~ 35mm film - so vintage 90s, haha! It is quick to take photos, but it doesn't speed up my procrastinating when it comes to getting the film developed!

Elizabeth Messina. Love.

Posted on | Thursday, July 15, 2010 | 2 Comments

I know I've not been able to handle all the wholesale/boutique requests in the past (thank you to everyone for your interest!!), BUT, BUT, that will soon change! At Twigs & Honey, we've been working hard to get the whole new wholesale side of the business retooled and revamped. Ordering will be easier and faster and everyone wins, right? If you are a wedding salon, bridal boutique or fashion boutique and are interested in Twigs & Honey wholesale, email us at and put "WHOLESALE" in the subject line and when all the materials are ready, we'll be sure that you're the first to get them. Be sure to include the best contact, mailing information, phone number, company url, and email address.

That time of year again :: Salem Art Fair & Festival

1 Comment

If you're in the Salem, OR area this Fri-Sun, be sure to visit the Salem Art Fair & Festival. The hubby and I happen to live about 3 blocks away (I've been watching the tents go up this week) and we had a wonderful time attending last year. Yummy food, lots of great local artists... LOTS. They also have a plant sale that I particularly enjoy. Although, I was a little bummed to see that they are charging for admission this year (alas, for a good cause), so be sure to bring some paper cash. Hope to see you there!

Oh! And it will be sunny and not too hot... so you don't have an excuse not to go!
