Questions and Updates

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 12, 2014, 3:20 PM


:bulletred: So first of all I have been thinking I really need a strong portrait for my Model Mayhem Avatar. Do you think that I have anything on DA that would work?


:bulletred: My watcher contest is technically over; however, I will extend it if anyone else is planning to enter. Please let me know.


:bulletred: New photos will be posted later. I some how lost the list of photos I wanted Jim to edit from our shoot....so I need to go through them again >.< Also the 20th of this month we are doing another outdoor shoot. :) I have not planned any stock photo shoots yet, which is sad because my new hair color is fading. I may just dye it again so that I can do a photoshoot with this new awesome hair color. Thinking about perhaps doing some black widow stock. I even have a BB gun that I will use. :)

:bulletred:  Commissions will come soon promise! I just been super busy. I have a paid gig this coming Saturday. My main focus has been practicing belly dancing; however, I sprang my ankle so it has been difficult to practice. Also I have been having an early birthday celebration. I will be gone for a few days. :)

:bulletred: Oh and I recently made some jewelry. So far a have a black choker with green beads. I also been putting together simple little projects. I took old glass contact lens bottles and put glitter and seashells in them. :D


:bulletred: I also have done some photography that I need to post...and I have a huge amount of stock I need to post. On a sad note I think my friends really nice camera was stolen...still searching for it though. :(

:bulletred: I have been recently going to another specialist for my infertility problems...because of my endometriosis the doctor suggests that we go straight into In Vitro fertilization. Sadly, I think this is my only option of having my own children.  It will be very expensive most insurance do not cover this sort of thing. Keith and I still plan to adopt but having children of our own would be very nice. On the 22nd we are going to have a sit down with the doctor and go over the risks and I believe the cost estimate. 

:bulletred: In other news my husband and my friend are all going to be working on our next cosplay. I will be doing Ikaros from Heaven's Lost property and my friend will be Nymph. It's pretty funny cause I went and bought fake boobies just for this cosplay (They are really nice too. Mastectomy grade silicone breast forms.) . If you look up the character you will understand why I bought these lol. Plan to do wings that pop out and fold. Going to have lights that flash a pattern in the robotic ears. If my friend and I win this competition we get to go to Japan!!!!! Gosh I hope we when. We would have to enter into Journeyman because my friend has a Degree in apparel design. I'm just nervous about the skit and well time! We have two month and I am afraid it is not enough time now. Anyways wish us luck!

:bulletred:  Finally planning to get violin lessons!!! I have had my violin for a long while now and was never able to learn on my own. There just happens to be a guy in the area that has been teaching for 40 years! It's only $30 a lesson, which is not too bad. I just have to possibly replace the hairs on my bow...one day I had put it away without releasing the tension....

:bulletred: Let's see what else is going on....umm still waiting for photos from this photographer...I am really crossing my fingers that he is not a flake. I  did a trade for this too. Another reason I may stop doing trades entirely, with the exception of Jim, just because I don't feel like I can trust people, unless I personally seek them out, or we seek each other like with what happened with Temperate-Sage. I can't wait to work with her! I am just waiting for her to work on her next design. This will be the first female photographer I shoot with, and I am very excited for this change. Something new yeah know? Plus I get to wear whatever she deigns! How cool is that?!

:bulletred: Oh! I got a new frog!! His name is Pudge or Pudgum. He is a pacman frog. Can't wait until he is full grown; so pudgy!!! 


:bulletred: Also my friend Shannon from belly dancing is going to teach me double veil! I am so excited to learn. Now I just need to have up for two half-circle veils. :heart:


:bulletred: Oh and Keith and I have saved up enough flyer miles. Were going to Europe next year!!!! I am so excited. I am working on getting my passport right now. Gosh I have never been outside the U.S. this will be such a dream come true. I have picked a couple of places I want to visit already. I haven't completely figured everything out yet though. I know I want to see Paris and Rome and there is also this castle called Mont Saint-Michel, which I have wanted to see since I took French class in high school. Keith wants to see Germany. I would also like to visit Ireland but I doubt there is enough time. It's already going to be pretty stretched out as it is. At any rate I will figure it out eventually. 


:bulletred: And I think that's it. If I think of anything else I will let you guys know or put an update on my facebook page. :)



See you guys later!

p.s. Please remember I do not get to everything right away especially notes. Even if I am online that does not mean I am not busy doing other things so please bear with me. Thank you.

p.s.s I like to do various different things and I am not particularly very good at any one thing. So please bear with me if my work is not perfect. I practice many things and all these things are hobbies and not my profession.

Hobbies: Photography, modeling, drawing, and writing, belly dancing, various artisan crafts, digital art, and more.

I am very busy and being on DA is just me having fun. So please if you do not like my work do not send nasty comments. I prefer structural criticism or nothing at all. Thank you!
