and know for something more chipper [Dec. 30th, 2012|10:52 am]
[mood |blahblah]

Moonshadow is back to her old self, running around, playing and eating. ^^
Kris and I had a good christmas he took a bunch of time off, so break is not as lonely. In house news we need to replace our pipes and a toilet. Buy the time we are done fixing up this place we won't want to leave. It feels like the money pit. I am waiting for the giant hole in the floor. Good thing we have a slab.

It is the season that I have looked forward too and have been excited about moving to TX for. . .thats right it is GRAPEFRUIT SEASON! Yes, they are so yummy in my tummy. I cut two of my fingers at this important time of year so eating them will be a little painful but so worth it.

It is time for a grapefruit of yumminess.

I need to find my compass [Nov. 9th, 2012|10:21 am]
[mood |confusedconfused]

I am feeling lost after moving down to Houston. I am unsure of were I want my life to go, I have never feel unsure of what I want to do for a career. I always felt I needed to become an Art Teacher, but now I don't know. I feel like the art door is open down here, I have joined guilds, and art shows. Now there is an opportunity for an artist residency that I would love to grab. But I feel like I should be more excited about finding Art teaching positions and subbing but the politics, red tape, and networking have seamed overwhelming and petty. Subbing is depressing, I am not sure if it is because I had fought hard to get my first teaching position or if it is just because it is the nature of the job, or if I need to find a new path. When I was talking to my husband about it I couldn't help smiling when I was talking about working on my art. That is an important sign, but the income is the issues or lack there off. So do I keep on the teacher track with the system falling apart or do I jump ship and make art, teach workshops, make art lesson videos, get my MFA and maybe teach at the college level. My husband wants me to be happy. I know I feel lost, and unsure, these are odd feeling for me especially when it comes to my career.

This is my little helper and by helper I mean complete distractor of getting work done because she is to cute. Her and my best friend are the same, they lay around and distract me with their cuteness.

Back at the loom [Jul. 4th, 2012|12:10 pm]

So yes the loom is out and I wove two sets of washcloths.

The pink and green set. Plain weave with some leno and nylon netting thrown in. Its soo nice and scrubby hee hee it's my favorite ^^
This blue set is all tabby weave and the weft was dyed by my student. He didn't like the yarn and I asked him if he didn't want it if I could have it. He agreed and I decided to weave his beautiful yarn.

Both sets use left over bamboo yarn and sugar and cream cotton yarn.

While weaving my loom broke . . . again. This time I am fixing it up nice.

I just need to do and I get help form moonshadow. >^_^<

I do not like posting images this way onto lj from flicker

getting the apartment together [Jul. 4th, 2012|11:53 am]

I like arranging the art work around the TV. It makes the TV more interesting to look at.

So yes I have my moved into my husbands apartment and all of my stuff is still in boxes. It makes everything unsettling. Before I have things on the wall I was really feeling crazy and that I was the one doing all the changes. But Kris and I talked it over aka I busted out yelling then tears, like all conversations should go, and he just hugged me and told me to do what ever to make you feel at home. I think he is getting used to my emotional italian temper.

Now we found a home that we are bidding on. Hehehe Yes I really like this house and I can't wait to nest. It will be our place, not his apartment or my parent's house, but OUR place. I can't wait to decorate this house, watch out High Fashion Home your awesomeness will be mine.

3 weeks in TX [Jul. 4th, 2012|11:30 am]

yummy blueberry pie that i made for Kris and his family

So yes I have been down in TX for about 3 weeks getting used to being married, living with someone new, a new culture, and climate (dear lord it is hot). It has been interesting because we have been in a long distance relationship for about 2 years and now we are really living with each other for good. Last year we were together over the summer but living at parent's houses not in our own place. So we are relearning and learning things about each others quirks like his need to lock the door 5 billion times, and I need to have the kitchen towel draped over the oven handle so it dries. One lesson that I relearned is to never go grocery shopping when hungry ooh not just for the simple reason of buying to much junk food but because you get into arguments over butter. Its just butter its not that big of a deal. However the real argument is we have completely different shopping styles I have a list and a mission. I need to get in, get what is on that list and get out of there. He has to wonder around and take 10 mins deciding what bread to get. Just pick one. Don't get me wrong this comes in handy when he picks watermelons. He picks amazing watermelons, I call him the watermelon whisperer. If I shop like this I buy too much food. Now I new this because the first time we went to the grocery store hungry we got into and argument and when we got back to his place I started crying, same thing happened. So yes, married life is a new adventure.

huge life changes [Jun. 15th, 2012|06:02 pm]
[mood |indescribableindescribable]
[music |MONO in VF]

So yes two huge life changes in less than a month.

Got married to Kris on 5/25/12 that was awesome.
Moved down to Houston TX today. It was so nerve recking, my cat Moonshadow and I flew down today at 8 am. To spend the lest amount of time traveling we really cut it close with getting through check in, security and finding the gate. In that rush I lost my credit card which is now cancelled.

We are at my husbands (and mine I guess) apartment, she is still really spooked. I think when my stuff arrives she and I will feel more at home. Right now everything is very surreal, filled with strange things, sounds, and smells.

Monday the pod gets in and most of my stuff. I can sew, spin and get my loom open. Bake some bread and start nesting. Then tuesday my parents with my van and a load of kyla goodies. I can't wait to have my own set of wheels oh yes! Being from Detroit nothing says freedom like your own car. Mmmm yes.

I want to weave, sew and spin so badly it is driving my nuts. This year has been so stressful and busy I feel restless trying to rest but I know I really need too. This afternoons nap was awesome, I feel asleep watching a BBC documentary. MMM history and art.

Moonshadow drank some water, and looks like she is trying to nap until a strange noise happens.

Kris will be home very soon ^^

Writer's Block: Wear This, Not That [Mar. 18th, 2012|06:13 am]
[mood |amusedamused]

What is the most timeless article of clothing or fashion accessory?

I would say that the most timeless and revolutionary garment is the modern day bra. It really changed fashion.

I do love a great dress and skirt in a slightly addictive way. ^_^

My twitter or tumblr got hacked.

Really what a pain in the ass, there are so many assholes out there with nothing better to do.

Just like the politicians, politics are pissing me off with all this anti women's health legislature. Plus all the union busting and teacher bashing get wearing

I need to get more motivated about work, life and play.
I have all these things I want to do but I can get motivated to actually do it. Very frustrating and stupid.

Kris and I are looking at houses and wedding planning is getting crazy go time. We need to send out invites soon. The shower is next saturday *_* I will finally get to see my Texan yay!

I have some very awesome fashion designs that I want to make. ^^ Plus my sister bought me the coolest fabric from Guatemala.

I was cleaning out my art stash and noticed that I like to draw bitchy, sad, aloof women . . . no wonder I am a cat lady.

This summer I am going to make art it will be awesome. Kris needs to get used to the sound of the loom and sewing machine too. ^^ And fabric and yarn EVERYWHERE. Why yes that is yarn in the fridge why . . . *shifty eyes* because it was to hot and needed a cool vacation. I need to get my flicker up and running again.
