...and the purple crayon

I bought a purple crayon piggy bank a while ago and since then, I've been dying to use it as a prop for a shoot. It felt great to break my tablet out of a long rest. And this was so much fun to do. I will definitely be doing more of these in the near future.

This one doesn't look as good as I want it to, but I didn't really set it up in a way that would be easiest/best. But you get the point.

Also, today is my birthday, so I surprised my self with a GIANT CAKE! How NICE of me to remember my birthday! Two candles for two decades, baybee.
I also drew myself a whole bunch of awesome presents, but I unwrapped them before I could take a picture.

P.S. For those of you who may not know why these photos came about, read this book.
