Lemon Tarts
Lemon Cream Cheese cookies
Humus: yes its got lemon juice in it.
Classic Lebanese dressing for Fattoush 
Lemon Spritzer
Lemon Cake
Lemon Pancakes?
Lemon Sauce
Lemon Bar
Lemon Icecream
Lemon Snow Cones 
Lemon Slurpees Slushes whatevers

and Last but not least

I will make all of these if that is what it takes to feel better about the lemons in my life.

this semester is calling for  a TON of experimenting I think.  I am only  in one photo related class which is weird for me and 2 illustration based classes. But oddly enough I am finding myself wanting to design purses.. weird? i know.

I sit around and wonder what I can do with photo and illustration to create PURSES.

I hate annoying designer purses.. especially coach. It's funny how a bunch of obnoxious C's can make a purse 125 bucks or more. I want to make a purse that is not stupid looking, has some cool art on it, and is more than affordable. I'll even sew them if I have to. Idk why but thats been kind of my thoughts recently.

ok enough ranting about purses

I have one project happening, where I am using makeup and buttons for portratiture. This is gonna range in color and style so it should be fun, doing it all myself as well.
then I have found myself doing spontaneous color things, I like to convert my pictures to black and white and then use one color for highlights and one for shadows. I don't know why but I love stitching things together. especially in weird ways.
 this is the beginning of a series I am starting up I sat over at this place called ate doors down(awesome food btw) and as people walked by I took their pictures, mind you I wasn't looking through the view finder I let it sit on the table.

This kid just so happened to walk by twice, once with nothing and then walked out with a bag, I am assuming he either was ordering takeout or he delivers chinese food...
