AWA aftermath [

[ mood | drained ]

Well, somehow we pulled off AWA this year and it was a hit. I myself am still recovering from all the lack of sleep I was missing prior to, and at, AWA. 14 costumes in all for AWA that were completed. we had soooo many pictures taken, especially of Kakurenbo. Now I am taking a short break from sewing, but I will start Halloween sewing here soon. My little man wants to be Hiccup from "How to Train your Dragon", which is his favorite book and was soooo excited when the movie came out. Mr. E wants a purple Joker suit made. And I am going to make some kind of Black dragon outfit for myself, don't know what exactly what I am going to do yet, but will figure it out. Anyways, that is all for now.

Love always,

Hey everyone! I know it has been awhile. Life has kept me pretty busy. A lot has actually gone on in my life. Mr.P, Little man and I have finally finished moving into our new place (it's actually looking like a home). Little man has graduated 5th grade and is officially a 6th grader and he was on the honor or star roll all year long (A's and B's at least). Mr. P and I are doing really well together. He finally got a new job (part time), but at least it is a job and he can get a better one. It is weird how it is easier to get a better job when you have a job. The AWA madness has already started and is coming together nicely. Overall, life has become good. Well, that is about it for now. I'll try not to take as long to post again.

Love always,

Hey guys! I'm still alive. We survived AWA and actually had a pretty good time. Life since then has been crazy. We have been trying very hard to get the house our friend is renting Mr. P, Little man and I clean so that we can move into it. LOTS of work! Plus I have been working quite a bit at my new job that I got promoted in(I GOT TO QUIT WENDY'S!). Little man is now 11 years old(where does the time go.) Mr. P and I have celibrated our 3rd anniversary of being together. Little man's ginea pig just passed away (that was hard and the day before Thanksgiving.) That is about it for now.

Love always,

[ mood | excited ]

Ah! It is that time of year again where the excitment of AWA hits and the craziness of sewing like a mad woman begins. I have so good ones for this year. First we have Cely-chan's cosplys: A kimono loli from Drama-Con (manga) that has been nick-named "the pink nightmare", but it is going to look good when done. All I have left is the obi and little hat to sew. Another Drama-Con loli dress that Bethany wears that is going to be purple (still waiting on the fabric of that one). And last, but CERTAINLY not least, Cely-chan is doing the Cyberpunk Ball in a gorgeous red dress with a black shoulder jacket with cyberpunk jewelry that we are making ourselves. Now M-chan's cosplays: First is another Drama-Con loli dress that we are doing in a mottled grey fabric with black lace and a burgandy ribbon with cat ears (beware she will be camera happy). The other one I am doing for her is her Ball attire. She will be dressed in a fine white (slightly frilly) shirt with a brocade laced up vest with tails (think captain of a sky pirate ship), also with steampunk jewelry. And last we have my coplays: I am aslo doing a loli outfit from Drama-Con, but it is going to be Chrstie's loli that she wears on the cover of book 3 in the manga. She has a pretty white top with a pink (slightly pleated) skirt and a red vest that has a pink collar taht is all trimed with lace. And the other one I am sewing this year is my Cyberpunk Ball gown. I am doing a sleeveless victorian dress with a bustle in a dark green satin with black lace and black satin roses on it. I will be wearing black satin fingerless opera length gloves and a womans's riding top hat that will be adorned with black and green ribbon, a black bow with a green and pewter camio, and a black fluffy feather. I will also be doing my on cyberpunk jewelry for this outfit. We will be wearing other cosplays at AWA, these are just the ones that I am sewing this year. Well, that's all for now, I will try to update how they are coming along as I go along.

Love always,

Hey everybody! Still alive here. Life has been good and crazy. I still work at Wendys (I really HATE working there), but I am working on getting to the point to quit there. I have started a new job (only a few days at a time, or else I could have quit Wendys now)as someone who gives out samples at Walmart. I still am sewing (which I am still taking commissions) and that is why the maddness begins 'cause it is that time again when all the sewing for AWA begins! This year, I am doing four outfits (all loli) from the manga Dramacon, which is a hilarious manga. I am also finishing Black Mage(8 bit style) for Cely-chan. And the big one is (drum roll here)....... doing two full dresses and a very nice piratey vest for that Steampunk Ball that we are going to on Friday night at AWA! We vare also doing jewelry and accessories for that outfits, with backgrounds and names for the night. We are getting so excited about it already *squeeee*. Mr. P and I are still together and doing well (very happy about that). My little man is doing well and is about to become a fifth grader (one week left of school for him). Sooooo things are going well at the moment. Nothing much more to say at this point. I will write later (but not so long a wait in between...I hope).

Love always,

Hey everybody! Yes, I am still alive and here. Life has been pretty busy. I still don't like my job at Wendy's, but I at least do have a job. I am going to be looking for a better one soon. My honey, Mr. P, has been living with me for a couple months now *grins happily*, but is still looking for a job himself. My little man is doing well. He is now 10 years old! I have a feeling the sewing madness will be starting soon. I have been gaming of course. Other than that, not much else is going on at the moment. I promise it won't be that long to post again.

Hello. It's me...yes, I'm still alive. Life has been pretty busy. My birthday was the 23rd and I did have a good day. My honey picked us up in the morning to get little man's report card, which he did really well. He then spent the day with us. When Mr. E got home, we got ready to go to dinner at Ghengis Grill. We brought a variety chocolate cheesecake for my birthday cake (mmmmm...chocolate cheesecake). We then went to see the new Indiana Jones movie. It was good and lives up to the Indiana legacy. The next night, my honey came and got me for more birthday celebrating. We went to his place first till dinner time and then he surprised me with taking me out to dinner to Red Lobster. He used some of his stimulus check just to take me out. I have such a great boyfriend! I then stayed the night there and came back early the next morning to go to work. Work is still work, just more hours, which makes some longer days. My sewing is going well. I already finished two haori, Black mage's robes and most of Venotza. All I have left of her is 2/3rds of the beading left. I'm about to cut and sew Chiaro's shirt and vest next, followed by Mina's aniversary dress. Anyways, that about catches up everything at the moment. Write later (but hopefully not to long this time).

Well, things overall seem to be going alright. I talked with Moonshade in California. She is doing well. Her doctor says she can't go back to work (probably for the rest of her pregnancy), but she will be soon 27 weeks. Yes! She is out of the danger and looks good to have a healthy baby girl! Her sweety is still looking for work, but they are doing alright. Sheena! Happy Birthday! (belated) Hope it was good to you. Bevy, my love goes out to you and hope things can get better for you. Just try to keep your chin up and know that you are not alone *huggles* I am soooooo not ready for Christmas. Ready to celebrate it, but that's about it at this point. Also talk of AWA and other cosuming and wedding sewing is in the planning stage. The actual sewing madness will begin after the New Year. It will be fun! Anyways, taht's about it for now.

Hey everyone! Sorry it has been a while. First I got soooo busy with AWA, which overall was good. The cosplays turned out well. We must make sure we get a room in the actual hotel next year. My poor knee however gave me trouble all weekend (I hate being a gimp, especially at a con where you walk EVERYWHERE!)Then Roy's computer went down. It was not good. Halloween was a little busy too, but the cosumes got done. Little man was Sora from KH2 in his final form. Mr. E was a vampire (surprise, surprise) Cely got me wings for my outfit, so I was a fairy, which surpringly looked very Amy Brown like.=> I almost got Cely's kimono and obi done, but work got in the way of finishing it. I have since then finished it and it looks good. We have survived Thanksgiving and little man's birthday (I can't believe he is 9 now!) I am not even ready for X-Mas yet. Mr. P and I have now been dating for a year now and celebrated our one year anniversary *sqweeee* I am so happy with how things are going with us. Anyways, I have to go and will be back soon.

Love always,

How things are on the other side [

So, as it has been told, I am on vacation for two weeks. My little man and I have flown out to Salt Lake to visit his grandpa (my dad) and so far are having a good time. It is so nice to not have to go to work and to relax, which it seems I really needed. Our flight was good, but made a long day. Our first day here, we went to Antelope Island and saw some white tail deer, antelope and actually a lot of buffalo. We even had one bull cross the road right in front of us. Then we went to Red Robin for lunch, which was good. After that we went to go see Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix. REALLY good! After that on the way home we saw an Oban festival at a Buddist church and went in because it was open tothe public. It was sooo coool. We had teriyaki bowls and watched dancing, but the best was the tieko drumming. Then we went home and crashed. Our second day we went glow-in-the-dark miniture golfing, which was fun and little mans first time mini golfing at all. He got 79 for his first time, which is good for his first game ever. I actually won with a 51 score, which is under par as well. We then went to go see Transformers, which have seen before, but little man had not nor had my dad. It is ctill cool to watch it a second time (we are sooo buying it when it comes out on video). We then went home to veg and relax. Well, that is about it for now. Will keep you guys updated. Miss my girls and my honey.

Love always,

Well, things are going really well for me right now. I am in love and he loves me in return.*big smile* My job isn't what I want to do , but at least I have a job and the people I work with are pretty cool, considering my boss gave me a ride to and from my son's Muffins for Moms at his school this last Monday. I have planned with both Jessica and my dad to go visit them in July. Yes! My little man and I are going to visit my dad in Salt Lake for a week and then Sacramento for the week after in July. Jessica has already bought the plane tickets (which is the most expensive part of the trip) and we are both getting real excited about it. *squeeees happily* Also, my birthday is next week on Wednesday and yes... I am turning Thirty *oohhhs sarcastically*. It's not really a big deal how old I am, but I always love celebrating my birthday with my friends and family. Anyways, nothing much else for now. Talk to ya later.

Well, things seem to be going pretty well for me. Me and Mr.P are doing REALLY well. He even came with me and my family to the family Easter at Grandma's. Mr. E gave a lot of my buisiness cards out lately and hopefully they will be starting to send commissions my way (I love to sew!) Also the plannig for AWA begins. My little man is on the honor roll this quarter at school ( yay A's and B's!) I'm getting more hours at work (which is both good and bad), which means a bigger paycheck, but I am going to be soooo tired at the end of Saturday. I am looking forward to my birthday next month, even though I am turning 30(ooooohhhh), which despite the teasing from Cely, is NOT a big deal. Nothing much else is going on for now. Talk to ya later.

Well, things have been both good and bad. Things are going well with Mr. P. I am hopefully going to be seeing him again tomorrow. I have pretty much seen him every Saturday for a while now. =) Work is work. I might be getting more hours next week, well see. As to how my little man is doing.....well, let's just say there are some days being a mom is hard. He has gotten into some trouble at school on the bus and he hasn't been completely telling Mr. E and I the whole story. That's why I was so glad I got to go to Girl's night with the girls last night. I really needed a night out of the house.(Freeedooom!) Well, that's about it for now. I'll talk to ya later.

Right now we are putting ideas down on what we may want to do for AWA 13 (the crazyness is starting again). I am also working a little more than I have been for the last two weeks, which I definately needed. Buy the way, Who all is still reading my posts on here? Just curious and would like to know, so just say hi to let me know, Pleeeease. Okay, that's all for now. Talk to ya later.

Hey guys! I hope everyone had a good New Year's. Things so far in this new year seems to be going alright for me. I am happy to say that it is official, I am dating Mr. P. We went out again today and had a good time. My little man goes back to school on Monday. (yay!) Not that I don't love spending time with my son, but two and a half weeks off and I am ready for him to go back. I'm just hoping that he doesn't have trouble on the bus again. I am starting to get ready to start the planing of outfits for this years AWA, so if anyone wants costumes for that, they need to start planing with me soon.

I have been working now at Wendy's (hey it's a job that gets me a paycheck) for now. I work while my little man is at school.

Hey guys! Well, my little man's B-day party is planned and invitations are out. I still can't believe that he is going to be 8 years old! I started a new cross-stitch and already have a good start on it. It is a wolf scene of two wolves in the woods. I'm trying to get myself back into the creative mind to sew some more. I take little breaks between big sewing projects so I don't burn myself out with it. I'm looking forward today because Cely and I am going to be hanging out with each other. She is also taking me to go donate (sighs) at least it helps to pay the bills. Anyways, not much else is going on at the moment. Talk to ya later.
