Graphic Art

You're perfectly flawed
You're perfectly incomplete
Like cracks in the glass
And faded photographs

You're perfectly flawed
You're perfectly incomplete
Let them come near when
Imperfections will keep you unique

Burlesque Baby

I've been hard at work today making goodies for Saturday night's event.  I'm feeling a bit more confident.  Plus, I showed Jericho St. Etienne (show promoter and performer) and he said "people are going to fall in love with you and your wares."  So that made me feel really good. I am so very excited to be invited to this event and to be surrounded by so many other visual artists, performers, dancers, and crafters.  I love creative people and I thrive in that type of environment.

I know, I know - shut up and give you a tease, right?

This is one of the tags that I mass produced today...okay, I made three!  However, as I was being called away to dinner I noticed that I had forgotten the "s" in burlesque.  DOH!  Jeremy said I was going to have to start all over again.  Me:  "Whaaaaat???  Ummm, I'm a crafter, I can cover up just about any mistake."  And so I did...the next time it will look nicer and crisper, but yeah, had to cover up the boo boo.  Anywho --here is my little tribute to the Golden Age of Burlesque...

Soooo, I have the rest of the week to create, create, create!  Then I have a photo shoot on Saturday and the burlesque show on Saturday night.  On Sunday I will not be getting out of bed.  :p  I'm kiddddddding!

Ho ho ho!

Ugh - totally dreading the holidays.  :(  However, this picture from today's shoot makes me smile really big.  :)  Happy Holidays - yeah, yeah, yeah.

Okay, okay - one more!  Bahhhhh!
