design*sponge book signing.

remember this post? well.. since then, i pre-ordered and received the book in the mail, and had rsvp’d to the book signing! on tuesday, i had the pleasure [repeat: pleaaaasure] of being able to attend the design*sponge book signing event at chicago’s downtown anthropologie.

this is me [hi!] waiting in line to get my book signed. the line wasn’t too bad, though – they provided champagne & cupcakes!

THIS is the lovely and wonderful grace bonney, founder & editor of design*sponge. she was so pint-sized.. i could have fitted her in my pocket!

yeah, that’s me [with my hair looking red for some reason] just talking to grace – and her just signing my book. no big deal.

and this is the final product! ‘tabitha – thanks so much for reading! <3 grace b.’

i’ll say it was a very successful night :D

unbelieveable.

hi folks! i have two HUGE announcements! ready? :D

one:

design*sponge has a book coming out at the end of the month and they’re going on a book tour! they’re stopping in washington d.c., los angeles, nashville, [etc.] AND chicago! details on timing and location aren’t posted yet, BUT they’re coming for TWO days in october. mark your calendars, designers, thrifters & d.i.y-ers!

two:

two weeks ago i got the opportunity [from a fellow photographer i work with] to photograph warped tour – meaning i got a free media pass & got to feel the sweat dripping off hayley williams [of paramore] :]

well… peter ended up giving me the contact information for the concert review site he works for, and last week i contacted them about contributing. they said they’d love to have me! so i gave them a list of shows i would love to shoot within the next couple weeks [peter bjorn & john; incubus; death cab for cutie; jack’s mannequin/guster], and waited.

and waited.

today when i got home from work, i got an email from the company saying that i got approved to shoot…

INCUBUS!

on sunday! i have loved them since i was in junior high, but have never been able to get tickets to a show. now i have the opportunity to be a foot away from brandon boyd!? un.be.lieve.able.
