In June 60 creative women in traveled to Camp Wandawega for a long weekend of workshops, relaxation, meals, swimming, and karaoke. I had the opportunity to film the weekend with Leah Fithian on behalf of Driftless — you can read our interviews and recap of the weekend here. Let's Camp is hosted by The Glossary and Feminest — I hope to see you there next year!
Russian Recording is an analog and digital recording studio in Bloomington, Indiana. This year they celebrate their 15 year anniversary and to celebrate they had a party to raise money for local charities.
This outdoor concert featured performances from 14 bands, most of them containing members who either worked at the studio in the past 15 years or have substantially contributed to its existence — many of them who haven't played in years.
This party was a fundraiser for Community Kitchen and Indiana Recovery Alliance. All of the proceeds from raffle ticket sales, alcohol sales, and Russian Recording merchandise were equally split between the two.

It was so fun working with Shelly again on her second cookbook. She always has a clear vision for what she wants her videos to look like and it's so fun to work and plan to make it happen. I'd also recommend taking a look at her first book, Vegetarian Heartland, if you haven't already!
