30 October 2011

Life has been.... filled with work. My job has me working every week day now which is great but takes up my week and I feel like I don't get to do anything with my personal life really anymore. I guess that's part of being in the real world. Beyond work I've been trying to hurry and finish up on stuff for the Winter Bazaar I'm participating in on SATURDAY, I still have a lot more drawings to do!
I was able to get off work a little early last week which was nice so I was able to go and do things I wanted to do like photograph this cute little nursery that I drive past everyday on my way to work. Yesterday I dragged Dave out of the apartment and snapped a few photos of us. I also got to take some senior pictures yesterday at these two awesome locations (one of them being somewhere I've always wanted to photograph too!!). Dave and I went out last night and saw "The Three Musketeers" at the theater and it was a pretty good movie. We both enjoyed it and thought that they did a good job putting it all together.

Oh and we also learned that it literally pays to be a twin today. Dave got a two dollar bill from some twin study thing at UW!

Alphabet Animals

So I've been working on this project forever it feels like and I'm still not done but here's what I have so far. I've been drawing two animals for each letter in the alphabet and they're all in funky fun colors. Some drawings are a little more realistic than others but it's been fun to work on, I just have a lot more to do...
I'm wanting to have them all done in time for this Winter Bazaar I'm participating in!!

If anyone was under the impression I enjoy doing laundry they were very wrong. The worst part is folding all the clothes after though! (wonder what I'm doing?)

Song Lovin

I love this song *melt*

(I Wanna Take) Forever Tonight
By: Peter Cetera

Feel your breath on my shoulder
And I know we couldn't get any closer
I don't wanna act tough, I just wanna fall in love
As we move into the night I get crazy
Thinking how it's gonna be with you baby
I don't wanna play rough I've been loving you enough
Oh, baby

I wanna take forever tonight
Wanna stay in this moment forever
I'm gonna give you all the love that I've got
I wanna take forever tonight
Fill you up, fill you up with love
When we close the door all I need is in your eyes
I wanna take forever tonight

Touch my lips, I'm on fire
You're the only one I'll ever desire
Turn the lights down low, make the world go slow
When I'm holding you tonight it's so easy
Nothing moves me like you do when you tease me
And to rush would be a crime
I just wanna spend some time with you baby


And when I'm here beside you
I wanna see what drives you out of your mind
I never wanna leave I only wanna be with you
'Cause I love how you feel your love is so real

I wanna take forever tonight
Wanna stay in this moment forever
I'm gonna give you all the love that I've got

I wanna take forever tonight
Wanna stay in this moment forever
I'm gonna give you all the love that I've got
'Cause I can't live without you

American Girl Doll

When I was little I had an American Girl Doll. Her name was Samantha, and I loved her! I was a little jealous of my best friend Camille who had a Just Like Me doll (that was made to look just like her... which pretty much consisted of coloring choices) but I loved that my doll had a story. She told me about a time that I didn't know in the US as a kid and I read all her books which made her more real and a great doll.

The funny thing is to this day I want to live in Samantha's romantic New York 1904 world, I know her world was not the same as most people living at that time (it was closer to Nellie's) but I still can wish can't I. I remember though towards the end of my American Girl Doll playing months they came out with Kit and I wanted her too, but I never did get her (since they are pretty pricey dolls), but the tragedy was I cut my Samantha doll's hair so it would be more like Kit's (I had this thing for cutting my dolls hair at that time) luckily though it didn't turn out too bad. When it was Jessy's time though to have my Samantha doll she didn't love her like I had and had even had her donated, I would have welcomed her back into my heart if I knew that was the case, especially since they have discontinued making my Samantha doll (along with her friend Nellie).
I hope that one day when I have a little girl (or two) that I can buy them each their own American Girl Doll and they can love them as much as I did.
Her wonderful family and friends, who I still remember


If I had a Just Like Me Doll now this is what she'd look like
(When I was little though she would've looked a lot like Kit, maybe that's why I wanted her)

And my doll would need this little guy for company
it's my dream dog too... destiny

Less Is More

"I find the whole concept of being ‘sexy’ embarrassing and confusing. If I do an interview with photographs people desperately want to change me - dye my hair blonder, pluck my eyebrows, give me a fringe. Then there’s the choice of clothes. I know everyone wants a picture of me in a mini-skirt. But that’s not me. I feel uncomfortable. I’d never go out in a mini-skirt. It’s nothing to do with protecting the Hermione image. I wouldn’t do that. Personally, I don’t actually think it’s even that sexy. What’s sexy about saying, ‘I’m here with my boobs out and a short skirt, have a look at everything I’ve got?’ My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder. - Emma Watson
