wedding data collection

It is worth noting that actual empty, clean baby food jars cost practically nothing. Pennies, each. However, the shipping...

I'm in an abstract phase of projects and planning right now. For one, it's mostly projects. For another, the projects are sublime: Buy baby food jars. Paint a perfectly good mailbox "pewter."

Eventually I will photograph all of these things, and at some point they may even make sense outside of my head. But in month -5 it's all abstract.

Photographer Kim/lilac leaf actually offered me jars, but we'd have the same shipping problem there. It's no big deal, just funny where the actual cost is.

I can be your baby food jar purveyor - how many and what size do you need? Baby charge goes through about four jars a day. Email me and let me know and I'll get on it.

p.s. Meant to add that I will cover shipping costs.
