i ahd a doctors appt so i was able to spend a bit more time after i woke up to fiddle with ukey. this coming sunday i have another lesson. it's a friend of my borthers and he teaches guitar. he also does ukelele. considering i pay him in juice from the convenient store accross the street, imust admit-he's the best deal that i've found all year! :)
doodling my posts is a bit time consuming, but i have grown quite fond of it. :) it gets me drawing, which was somethign i hadn't been doing in quite soem time- so it's waking my eyes and hands up, this, i like. and i know i'm still ntohte best at posting, but i think i have been a bit more consistant than before.
cutie and i went to a bridal faire this past sunday- the mc said he needed some grooms-to-be to participate. my sister an i were absolutley terrible and as i was waving my arm and pointing to my little cutie, i took it a step further and i began to scream, hoot and hollar. the mc had no choice to notcie us and my cutie was chosen to "perform"!!! - more to come after i draw... how i love my little cutie- what a good sport he is!!! xoxoxo!

the director and two of the supporting actors were there at the screening and did a q&a after the film. you can see some of the vids on the Dear Old Hollywood blog.
we took some pics outside of the theater. i went ahead and doodled me against the wall. one of my favorite terms that were taught to me in elementary school was the term "artistic license" -- heheh. :) so, if you've ever been to the eygptian theater, you might notice the wall isn't exactly accurate- but it think it's good enough to get the picture across. :)
outfit details- handpainted silk scarf- aLou original, red 3/4 sleeve turtleneck-express, black hoodie- express, dull charmeuse mushroom pleated dress with beaded lace bodice- vintage, electric blue tights, nordstrom

Alrighty- i know i've been a bit crap on wrtiign blogs- what's wrong with me?? i'll tell you what's wrong with me... i'm a bit of a lzy littel bunny when it comes to gettin' on the compy for longer than 10 minutes.
but it's a new year and so all must be forgiven, correct? yes, i thought so. so what have i done in this oh so new year?? well, i have now taught myself how to play "twinkle twinkle", "ode to joy" and "mary had a little lamb" on my ukelele (thank you robby) which i can easily say was one of my fave x-mas gifts...considering that i've been wanting one for about 2 years... my fingers are now being contorted into all sorts of painful little notes and chords. i want to learn to play well and then i can sing with a high pitched voice and dance around at the same time.
i also finally took my overlock machine to ge tfixed, the tstrings were wrong- ehehhe... i never said i was a pro! the guys at MAYHALLS in la cresenta stringed it up for me for free. they're always very helpful there. if you need any help with your machine or are interested in buying a new one, i'd go there. they also offer beginner classes in sewing. so now, i can make soem knits.. will i? i hope so- might as well get soem use out of that little machine! i DID make soem curtains this weekend, forgot to take a picture of them. eh!
oh yes, i almost forgot to write about why i put up the vintage wedding dress pattern from VOGUE. last night i started sketching out some ideas for my dress. it will be heavily influenced by Robby's grandmothers dress. She got married in 1937 and the dress was to die for! i took a load of pics and started sketchin' around. (i'm not using the vogue pattern shown above) it was jsut to mention the wedding.. yes, yes, the better bloggin should be part of my new year rez. hope everyone had a great one! :)
