Erica and I both love taking pictures and between the two of us, we have quite the camera collection. So you can imagine how excited we were when our friends at Lomography offered to giveaway one of their La Sardina cameras to one lucky reader. I’ll never forget my first experience shooting with a Lomography camera and experimenting with double exposure photography. Winding the film, hearing the clicks, and waiting patiently for the pictures to be developed reminded me how rewarding it once was to take photos before the digital age. So have fun, experiment, try shooting from the hip, and don’t leave home with out it! To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment below, follow Lomography on Facebook (or better yet signup for their newsletter) and a winner will be selected at random on Monday April 30th. (Sorry, limited to US & Canada residents only. Winner will be announced and contacted by email. Good luck! xx ***Contest is now closed. Congratulations to Armu!)
When graphic designer and artist Joanna Bean Martin shared with us her technique for marbling the bottoms of glassware with nail polish, we couldn’t wait to try it ourselves. Who knew it would be such an easy way to add color and pattern to your next tablescape or party? Remember, the brighter and bolder colors you use, the more the glasses will radiate and glow. Have fun!
- flat bottomed glassware
- variety of colorful nail polish

For almost six years, photographer and artist Cara Berer has been taking a very unique approach to book art. She thoughtfully bends, folds and occasionally soaks old pages of discarded catalogues, outdated dictionaries, dated instruction manuals and rejected telephone books, transforming them into marvelous works of art. And don’t worry, bookworms – Cara has assured us that no important books have been injured during the making of any of her photographs.
