what are you doing new years eve?

Or, I guess I should rephrase to "What did you do New Years Eve?"

Tec and I got out of town and rented a cabin with a few dear friends. We ate well, drank well and forwent sleep and seriousness. We accidentally discovered this incredible 8mm app a few hours before leaving and it turned out to be the perfect tool to document our trip. Plus, I'm a sucker for anything 8mm, even if it is a phone knock-off version. (If you've got a couple bucks to spare and a phone to support this little gem, I swear you'll be in love.) Oh! And notice the glitter party hats! I fell in love with them after seeing Ashley's post on Design*Sponge and was so excited to have an excuse to make them!

"What Are You Doing New Years Eve" by Ella Fitzgerald

I hope you had a beautiful beginning to the new year!
Here-here to 2011.

I have been listening to Pink Martini and Frank Sinatra and have been missing Ella Fitzgerald. I got the sniffles listening to her just then, all misty eyed about what wonderful friends I have and the new year we have together.
That app sounds so neat! I love all the smooches and sparkle hats, even for baby. I hope your new year is blessed. I'm planning on bopping by to see your dad this semester.

So fun! Thanks for sharing the app!
My husband and I actually rented a lake house for new years with a few of our closest married couple friends. So nice to get away, eat great food, and celebrate together.
Happy New Year!



HAPPY NEW YEAR, sweet girl.

i love this video.
i actually downloaded the app, too.
how did you add the music??

chelsea {oh, my deer!} said...

hey becky!

i imported all the clips into imovie, muted the clips and then just added music! once you play around in imovie it's really pretty easy.

good luck! be sure to share what you come up with using the app! ;)

Loved your video so much it inspired me to learn imovie and use the 8mm app. It turned out pretty cute. Thanks for the inspiration!
