Canyonlands

Adventure / In Utah / Photography

Saturday we decided we wanted to just get away from everything for a bit, so we packed up the PT and drove down to Canyonlands. It was a quick trip —from about 5pm Saturday to 12pm Sunday and we didn’t actually even camp —just folded the seats down and slept in the car. Our neighbors thought we were crazy when they saw us come back so soon but there is something so majestic about watching […]

Utah Fashion Week Spring 2016

Last fall when I decided to do the Utah Fashion Week Show I was still sort of on the fence about if I really wanted to do it. I had an idea I was slowly working on, but I didn’t feel the motivation I normally do and I considered maybe dropping out because the time and energy it takes is quite substantial, and my inspiration wasn’t really there. Then, over Christmas break we went to Europe […]

Sometimes when I tell people I designed and made some lines for Provo Fashion Week I get some scoffs and nervous smiles. They can’t get over the idea of there being fashion in Utah, specifically Provo. They think it’s this hilarious joke. I don’t know what to say to those people other than the joke’s on them because their misplaced bias is blinding them to the incredibly talented designers in this area. As I’ve participated in a couple of the PFW shows […]

My photo 101 class came to an end the other week. It was pretty fun to work on my own photography skills rather than just always helping other people develop theirs and even though I already knew most of the stuff we talked about in class from my experience teaching Photo I at school, I still learned some valuable stuff and got to see how a real photo class functions in terms of critiquing. I […]

Photo 101

This last year at school I taught the beginning photo class. I actually have the photo endorsement because most of the qualifications were covered when I worked doing graphic design at BYU, but I’ve never taken a real photo class myself. I had one video class in my program where we talked about the way cameras function etc, and I feel I have a good grasp on basic principles of design, but there have been […]

Provo Fashion Week

For me at least, there are always a few days before something I’ve been working on is finished that I think it’s never going to come together, it looks terrible, and I hate it. My collection for Provo Fashion Week was no different, but fortunately it did come together and for the most part I think it turned out great. Ever since I was a kid one of my favorite things to do was watch western movies with […]

Refinishing the Floors Part III: Dust and Polyurethane

343 West / Projects

After days of sanding we finally got all of the paint off the floor and the scrapes were looking as good as they were going to get, so we decided it was time to move forward. While we were researching this process I had in my mind two steps that were going to go down—sanding, and putting down the poly. I was sorely mistaken, however, because dust removal is no joke and deserves to be a step all […]
