What a weekend!  First of all, my knees are black and blue and not for any REALLY good reason.  LOL.  I had to kneel on rocks today to get some shots at my photo shoot with the Hoyt Family.  This was my third shoot with actual human beings and I think it went okay.  It started out a little awkward but 870 plus pictures later we were rockin'!  I have a ton of pics to edit this week --pictures from today's shoot, pictures from the Burlesque Show, pictures from tomorrow night's shoot.  Plus birthday's.  Oh many birthday's this month.  I HAVE to get my brother's gift and my mom's gift in the mail before Friday.  Which means I actually have to make cards and canvases before Friday.  Aye, I've got my work cut out for me.  I cannot wait for my two week vacation.  ::le sigh::

Pictures?  Well, there's a bunch on my own facebook page and on my Facebook visual arts page...but here is a little taste of what I shot today:

The Dark Carnival Bewitching Burlesque Show was SOOOO much fun last night.  I totally want to learn how to dance like that.  However I am not coordinated and I don't want to show my ta-ta's to everyone.  I mean, sure, I like low cut/pin-up style clothing, but ruffled panties and pasties...not happening...for a while.  ;)  Although I do own a lot of ruffled panties.  Tee hee!  

I ended up wearing one of my 20's inspired dresses to the show last night with fishnets and dainty platform shoes - everyone loved the look.  I love fitting in and I look forward to working with that group of performers.  No, I won't be performing - LMAO!  They want me to sell some of my art at their shows.  LOL.  Also, last night was the very first night I wore high definition makeup.  I really, really, really, liked it.  What do you think?

Well, it's eleven so I better get to bed.  I have a crazy week ahead of me.  The boy actually said that I needed to slow down because I've been running around non-stop for days.  Hmmm, I'm flattered that he noticed.  :D  Have a great week and GO RANGERS!

I need a weekend...

...from my weekend!  Wow, I was crazy busy all weekend. 

The best part was today's photo shoot with Danielle and Riley.  I think the photos turned out really awesome.  But that's just what I think.  :)

Have a great week!  I'm going to bed.

Thank you!

I'm sorting through the goody bag that we received at the artistic journey last weekend. Lots of Maya Road goodies and even slippers! This is SERIOUSLY better than the bag at CKU Nashville!

Artistic Journey

My partner in crime and I after day 2 of The Artistic Journey.  We were beat!!!!

This was our first full project - on day two.  It's a shadow box.  I made it for my mom's birthday.  Ugh, I better get it in the mail if I want it to be there on time.  I kinda suck and mailing stuff to people.  Anywho - more pictures another day.

Sunday Nightage

BLEHHHHH.  Had a fantastic weekend at the Artistic Journey but uh, next year, yeah, no driving back and forth to the Wax, we will be staying in a hotel.  So I’m a little exhausted but still had a complete blast.  More later…for now here is a picture of my tag on display at The Crafty Scrapper.  :)  Sorry for the glare - tags were on display at the actual display window to the store and I took this picture from the outside looking in.

Okay - one more pic!  I snapped this yesterday at sunset as we were leaving Katie's class which was held at the historic Rogers Hotel.  This is one of my favorite buildings - The Ellis County Courthouse.
