I have some really amazing friends.
I met them at a party. Their own party. I didn’t know them yet, but Paige Green gave a slideshow of her work, and Arann played some music.
I can tend to be a bit of a tough critic, but I was impressed!
This was 3 years ago. Since then, Paige has photographed Messy Monkey. She has photographed me, with some of my wacky “photo shoot” ideas. (more on this later!). And Arann – not only have I sold apples next to him selling wool (at the farmer’s market). I have laughed & cried (no really, just laughed), watching him perform with/as the BLUEBELLIES – not to be missed!
We had discussed the idea of Messy Monkey on their (mom’s) farm some time ago. It’s an amazing farm with:
chickens, goats, sheep, cows, & llamas.
It has an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven.
We are going to start using it for some of our events!
It’s going to be Messy Monkey a la farm!
First – think harvesting your own veggies, and making your own pizzas.
Then, think building scarecrows with found objects – aka, wool, mud, dirt, & wood.
Then, think tomato fight! Well, think “capture the flag” meets paintball a la tomatoes – in the middle of the field surrounded by hay bales!
We can craft your day in a more chill way if you prefer…perhaps making butter, etc.
But, keep in mind, no matter what you do, you can have live bluegrass all the way.
Again – check out the Bluebellies while you’re at it:
Of course the day always ends with champagne on the bus – all the way home; dance floor included (needless to say)…
See you at the farm!
