6,000 Words @ Six One Way

by Stefani on 30-September-2007

Here's Mud In Your Eye

I am very excited, beyond excited, really, to make an annoucement today. It’s one that I’ve been itching to share for weeks now.

I finally get to spill the beans!

A few months back, not too long after I began this little blog, I met a person who can only be described as a kindred spirit.

Eren, of This Vintage Chica is not only a talented, loving mama with an eye for vintage style, she’s also one of the sweetest people you’ll ever come to know. She and I were meant to be friends – both with three young boys, both with a love of old stuff, both born of that mix of rugged independence wrapped in cotton and leather, otherwise known as Texas.

If I didn’t know better, I’d swear we were separated at birth.

Needless to say, I was over the moon and flattered beyond all reason when Eren asked me to partner with her on a new collaborative project.

Two Mamas.

Six Boys Between Us.

One Passion – Capturing Motherhood Through the Lens of a Camera.

You can follow our journey with a new post each Monday at Six One Way

You know, I love to write. It is one of my most deeply felt passions, but photography has become a new love for me, in it’s own right. I’m fascinated by the idea of a language, as an art form, that can’t be marred by spelling mistakes or poor word choices. I’m excited by the opportunity, and the challenge of sharing my world with you, with no words at all.

So please, join us at the table each week, for 6,000 words, in photo form, on the joy of motherhood and the messy business of raising young men.

Raising Boys...

I read and enjoy both of your blogs so much – and I think this collaboration is a great idea! Congratulations on the new venture – I look forward to seeing it come to fruition!

Joanne October 1, 2007 at 6:29 pm

That’s a fabulous collaboration! Beautiful photos. I think that after you have a years worth of work you should go to one of those publishing sites like snapfish or picaboo and print a book of photos so each of you has a hard copy. Very cool!

Found the Six One Way blog through the Photo Group on NaBloPoMo.

Awesome idea and great pics!
