Wedding Location

After living in sin for 5 years we have decided to get hitched. We started out with wanting to elope which was nipped in the bud right away due to some family members. Then we decided just Justice of the Peace then dinner with the family and then take off. Now we are having a wedding in a chapel with Dinner for the family and a huge party two days later….so much for planning. Some things just get out of hand without you even noticing it.
We debated on where to have the party because we wanted something casual but unique that had enough room to host a party for about 100 people. We were offered to have our party at my Aunt In-law’s. It is beautiful there and has a very cool atmosphere but we will still have to decorate so that we can make it feel like a wedding party.

I think that a 50’s theme would be perfect for this Party. We will see I will post my progress.

Elegant Kids

So yesterday was the last showing which was a blessing let me tell you. I was so stressed out. But all in all everything went well and my teachers liked my children’s outfit.

The skirt has 6 layers of Tulle and twirls and swirls like a real princess dress.
The top layer is Dupioni silk in a cream color. Those were the colors that I had to work with. Pink and cream to match my dress. IMG_1778  I am thinking that I will be adding a little something to the dress to make it look a little less plain on stage, but I don’t know what yet. 
I made another Outfit in Black for the subject Avantgarde but the clothes  did not photograph well. I will try to get better pictures.

Forgetting to be Thankful

I realized today that I had forgotten to be thankful. It seems odd to have to realize that but I did. These last three months have been kind of uncertain and unsettling. School did not go as well as I had hoped and I have a feeling that fighting with the School owner is just another lesson that I am supposed to tackle. I worked so hard almost 3 years and to have it be for nothing in the end is a smack in the face.  So sitting at home in my sweats for the last month was not very helpful. I fell into my hole where I want nothing to do with anybody and not have to clean,cook or wash my hair. Yup that is what is called depression. I don’t get it very often but when I do it like a big MONKEY on my back.
So I did what I always do when I feel like crap……wait for it.  I look for people and stories that are worse off then me. I wallow in my misery and berate myself for being so stupid. I read blogs of people that have lost their children and spouses. I read how they managed to find the good in everyday things even though their lives were shattered.  I am always amazed at how people pull through a tragedy like that and still live there lives.
I don’t want to say that this method is the right way to deal with it and I sure as hell don’t want to say that it makes me feel better that I am way luckier then these poor people but it does help me put things back in to perspective.
Like your parents tell you when you were little and didn’t want to eat your vegetables.” Just remember there are starving kids in Africa”. Unlike then I now know what that means. Back then I just thought send them this crap they won’t want to eat it either.
Needless to say I love vegetables now and I lay the guilt trip on my kids too.
So I guess to make a long story short the next time you don’t want to get out of your jammies for a month or wash your hair then indulge your pity party for a little while and then get your head out of your ass and get on with your life dammit.
By the way I just washed my hair thank you very much.

I’m Back

I know I should be ashamed of myself for not writing squat for a whole month but sometimes life gets in the way and you have no motivation to create anything let alone write about it,take a picture and spell-check the damn thing. Besides the only people that ever read it is family and they know why I haven’t been in the mood to write anything.
I have this nifty little thing called site meter that tells me how many people look at my blog and browse. There are hundreds of people that come and look at my crap but not one of these people feel the need to leave a comment.
This month I will be finishing Little E’s outfit and my outfit for Avantgarde. Plus I plan on painting a couple of rooms so there will be plenty to blog about. If that doesn’t give you the warm and fuzzy’s then I give up.
