When I started this post, it was many days ago, but life gets in the way.

Can you believe I’ve posted this much in a week? lol

Here is my take on Scrap Your Crap‘s challenge # 53 A-Z

It’s a card I made for a special friend who lives far away.

My show opened tonight. Sigh of relief. When I get pictures of it, I shall post!

I’ve been MIA due to my latest show, Landscape of the Body, a play set in 1977 in New York. Fun right? There is a porn star, a bike messenger (what the hell does a bike messenger in the 70’s look like?), singers, a man in drag, teenage murderers, you name it.

I’ve had the 70’s on my mind. Everything I see is the 70’s. And unfortunately, I haven’t been able to get a single scrapbooking related thing done.

But on another note, my girlfriend started this group called The Big Year. There are 8 ladies in our group, and for the next year, we are doing one thing each month that we’ve always wanted to do. Something that will renew our spirits, brighten our days, or just make us smile! Here is my Big Year List

(in no particular order)

  1. Get a wedding ring (still don’t have one after 3.5 years)
  2. Go to Glen Ivy.
  3. Spend a day doing touristy LA things (Wax museum, Pinks)
  4. 40 daily affirmations
  5. Find our perfect apartment
  6. Develop my own film in a dark room
  7. Visit Portland, Or
  8. Snorkeling in Catalina
  9. Play a Tori Amos song on the piano
  10. Go to church with James
  11. Dye my hair (I’ve never dyed my hair before!)
  12. Save & buy something big from Anthropologie

This week we released our first team challenge over at Scrap Your Crap. The theme was 20-10, so I used a combination of 20 letters/numbers in my title (Weekend Warriors Part 3) and 10 scraps of paper. These are pictures from 2005, when we stripped the paint and refinished the built hutch that houses all my scrap/sewing/cat supplies.

Haven’t been blogging or FBing lately. Getting ready for the next show. I’m costuming two one-acts. Was stressed out, but next week I’ll be back in the game. I’ve got so many projects to work on – my list is huge!!

On another note, my etsy shop is up and running and I’ve made a FB fan page, you can join here if you’d like 😉

~ciao!

..and the only prescription is more hats.

Apparently, that’s all anyone wants these days. I made two more hats for someone, then I made a hat for James’s little cousin, and now my mom wants a hat… Phew.

In the meantime, I am finally, finally, making stock for my etsy shop! I believe I talked about this some few millenia ago.

But maybe I want to show you what’s been keeping me away from my bloggity. Here are  a few pictures of the costumes I designed and built for Pride and Prejudice (was it really last semester). I co-designed Elizabeth, Jane and Lydia (yes, in the play there are only 3 sisters, and that is not the only horrific bastardization that Helen Jerome took upon herself)

Lydia, Elizabeth, Jane

Colonel Fitzwilliam, Elizabeth

Elizabeth, Darcy – the proposal

E and Lady Catherine De Burgh – I so love that pinafore

The kiss – you can’t see the dress, but this picture is pretty amazing

Oh, and happy happy New Year!!!

working while slightly drunk is fun!

I’m supposed to be making a dreamweaver tutorial for my replacement, but I had a hard cider before hand. I’m such a lightweight! But it should make for fun writing!

Not much to update with. Just completing my last week of work, while going to classes and rehearsals. It’s been busy. But man, my classes are fabulous! I LOVE draping. Wow – it makes so much sense to me. Of course, I’m one of those kind of people who are really good at following directions. Which of course, means that costume illustration is tough! But we have the most wonderful teacher. I should show you my drawings – they’ve already improved within a week!
