I work for a nonprofit, public access photography & imaging facility called Community Darkrooms here at Syracuse University. Community Darkrooms is a facility run by the Light Work gallery. My job here is pretty much as an assistant manager to the digital area. I help maintain our computer lab and answer any technical questions, but mainly I print big, big fine art prints. I run 3 Epson large format printers and have a steady stream of work to keep me busy. I also teach photoshop on the side.

So, anyway, we recently made some changes and sadly had to let our color processor and darkrooms go in order to accommodate our expanding digital lab. No more c-prints. :( But, we've left our b&w wet lab in place, but our color has moved digital. I'm pretty excited about the change.
Our print lab will be in a much more spacious, modern area. We're upgrading our printers, yay! We'll be state-of-the-art really soon, within the next week or two! Yesterday we had workers installing a brand-new hardwood maple flooring.. so we're almost there! I'll post more as renovation and moving in progresses!


It's been a long, long time! I've been so bad at updating my blog! Let's see, let's see... what's been up with me?

Gallerie SUZE posted a kickin post about my pouches in her blog back in February! She also showcased works by rennes-le-ch√Ęteau and Ruth's Crafts. Thanks Suze (sorry I'm a little late!) and nice work fellow Etsians!

Over the past couple years, I've had the pleasure of meeting and working with my friend, Whitney. You can view her etsy shop here! Whitney is recently graduated from Syracuse University and is one of the most creative people I know. Whitney's bio states:

"I am a surface pattern and graphic designer. My surface patterns have sold to companies such as: Kimberly Clark, Lane Bryant, Crabtree and Evelyn, Glen Raven, Mudlark, Sunbury, and Staples...".
Right now, her shop currently offers custom design work, custom iron-on decals and original art prints, but I'm fairly certain you will find more for she's always experimenting and reinventing! This shop is definitely work keeping an eye on! And, maybe a future CarrieDee & DesignsByWhitney endeavour in the future??! Wouldn't that be awesome!

On the homefront, I've been revamping my space. I'm trying to organize and develop new idea and such. I recently installed some shelving.. I'm so excited about the space they freed up! Like a chain-reaction, that got me thinking I needed some nice boxes to organize everything on the new shelves. So,I spent an afternoon covering shoe boxes with fabric! I think I'm addicted to covering boxes now, lol! Since then I've been looking around to see what I can cover next! (btw, I do still have these prints in stock!)
