Free Engagement Sessions, Forever

Starting today, submissions are open for free engagement sessions. So long as we are making enough revenue from weddings to stay in business, I plan for this to be permanent. But why? That’s a very good question! And I will explain with the following reasons:

1. Engagement sessions are awesome and I want to do more of them.

2. I often have ideas for themes that never get used. I want to utilize these ideas.

There are terms to the offer [you'll see on the page], and remember, these are submissions. I’m continuously looking for personalities and lifestyles to fit my theme ideas. If you are not selected, it’s probably because I don’t feel you are a match to any current ideas, however, we will save all applications to be reconsidered in the future.

These sessions will be free. Tips are accepted, but not required.

Handcrafted Wood Disc Case \\ 2012 Product Package [prototype no.1]

February 8, 2012 | Filed Under DIY, Products | 4 Comments 

Throughout this week and last, we’ve been experimenting with plans for a unique 2012 cd-dvd case. First I sketched out the idea on paper. Next, the plans were presented to Aneila’s “Grandpap”, Arnold. To put it simply, Arnold knows how to work with wood just like you and I know how to walk. After some adjustments this cedar prototype was created.

Details Worth Mentioning:

-magnetic latching mechanism

felt lined

-finished with tung oil

The placement of the magnets still needs some engineering, but besides that, we’re very happy with the look and feel of the product. We’re hoping to offer these in at least five different types of wood with assorted stains and finishes. Keep your eye’s peeled, as a “making of the case” post is being developed and will arrive in the next few weeks!
