I had an excellent time at AVCon a few weekends ago! Thanks to everyone who came and said hi, and bought shiny things from me! Also, the Blackwoolholiday etsy shop will be re-launched in the next few weeks and will feature lots of new stuff, so stay tuned. :
Okay, so this is quite late, but I really wanted to share the story of the strangest birthday I’ve ever had. A heartfelt thankyou to everyone who gave of their time to make my 25th special. You are wonderful.
One of the most important lessons I have learned in Iceland. Thanks to everyone who helped teach me that. Also a huge thankyou to everyone who watched this series and supported me. Love to you all.
I apologize for the emotional weight of this one, I promise the last Film Letter will be a little gentler on the feelings! I just have to be honest about how things are.

Though the days are becoming very short, this week has been an unexpected blessing of good weather. I am thoroughly enjoying getting to know this lovely mixed bunch of creatives!
