My Prized Possession

To most, this is just a piece of junk. Anyone looking through my utensil drawer would think I should have tossed it long ago.  Afterall, it's no longer functional. It just takes up space!  In my eyes it is beautiful. All of its imperfections are part of its story. Part of MY story. In 1984 I was moving into my very first apartment.  I was about to have my own kitchen.  I had nothing to put in it of course except for a set of dishes I purchased at a yard sale and some glasses Id collected from work lol. My mother took me to the store and bought me a set of pots & pans.  She also reached into her own utensil drawer and took out this very spatula.  It was one of her older ones.  Its handle already had several battle wounds from being against the side of a skillet a little too long as she used it to prepare meals for my dad and me. Over the years I have used it to prepare meals for my own family.  My children used it as they learned to cook.   I retired it about 10 years ago beca…

Speak Easy

Good Morning followers and art aficionados,
Its 3:30am  Alaska time and -2 degrees.
I've got one latte down and just about ready for my second lol

Have you seen  The Lost City of Z starring Charlie Hunnam?!
It got 4 & 1/2 stars on the rotten tomato meter. It's a long movie. 2hrs & 20 minutes worth.
But man is it good, and based on actual events to boot!

The Synopsys -
   Set in the 1920s and based on author David Grann’s bestseller, it tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as “savages,” the determined Fawcett supported by his devoted wife (Sienna Miller), son (Tom Holland) and aide (Robert Pattinson) returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925.
 An epically scaled tale of courage and passion told in writer/director James Gray’s classic filmmaking style, The Lost City of Z is a stirring tribute to the exploratory spirit and a conflicted adventurer driven to the verge of obsession.

Put the kids to bed, grab some microwave popcorn and drinkage, put your cell phones and tablets in the other room and kick back.
This is another one that you don't want any distractions. You will miss something important.

I'm ready to visit the coffee altar again, but before I do I wanted to share a promo I did a while back featuring
the PeekaBoo Dress for Genesis 8 female by Kaleya and the InStyle Texture set that goes with it by -Valkyrie-
Its a hot little number with a peek-a-boo cut out in the midsection.
The textures give you lots of versatility so she can wear this in a variety of settings.
I can see this with a sweet pair of mary janes or even some thigh high boots.





The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
Swing on over & add it to your wardrobe. Id love to see what you create with it!
See ya tomorrow,
and enjoy the flick!

Hey peeps, let's talk about promos, and what makes a good one! Well, it really depends on what the product is. For example, if you wanted to promo a town or forest. You want to show as much of it as you can without it being obvious.
Perfect example by Anita. The figure is just a part of the scene. It doesn't dominate it. It's clear that what we are selling here is the environment, not model.




What about this one?


It's a cool piece, but what am I selling here? Am I selling the architecture, the ship behind her, or the girl up front? WTF knows? I didn't utilize my camera properly! The model should be off to the side, and my focal point should have been on that ship back there.
And this one!
There is entirely too much going on here. Your eyes go all over the place when they SHOULD be focused on that model. I know.  We have lots of toys we want to play with But when it comes to promos, LESS IS MORE! Here is a prime example of a model promo
The artist still got to play …

Moose Troubles and The New Girl

Good morning everyone!
Its 9:29am Alaska time and +3 degrees.
Weather app says more snow is coming.
For all you ladies out there, it also says its a great day fora super padded Bra. You've been warned lol
I love that App. Its like weather with a sense of humor on the side lol

I've had my 2 lattes already and could really use another.
Every dog for 3 blocks was barking all night due to moose lurking in the woods.
I went to bed at 9. They woke me up at midnight. About an hour after I finally got back to sleep, it was time to get up :(

I didn't watch anything last night as I was busy working on this new girl.





I think I like her as is. I tried adding makeup and all that jazz. But I just didn't like it.
Id loves your opinions. Oh, and she needs a name! I cant just go around calling her new girl forever lol. Shoot me some suggestions!
