Hello! My name is Jess and I love to do anything creative and artsy in any way. I'm always wanting to learn new methods and improve my skills, musically & artistically. I started blogging initially to share what was going on in my life, but now I am using it as a business tool, as well as sharing with my friends artsy fartsy things I've made and learned! I love to paint and make custom art, if there's anything you need, please let me know, I always love a challenge! I hope you enjoy reading, come back often!!

Oh yes it's ladies night...

It's today! It's today! Well, tonight actually. Tonight we are going to see New Moon and I am sooooo excited about it. I've got my shirt completed and I'm preparing the house for the convergance of girls coming over for a "pre-New Moon party". We're gonna watch Twilight, eat food, laugh a bunch I'm sure, and then head up to the theatre around 9 o'clock-ish to get in line! It's going to be so awesome! We will be posting pics tomorrow I'm sure!


So it's 3 days til New Moon and I'm getting really excited! Sarahbeth and I made our shirts Friday night, and they look so cute! I'm trying to email a some pics of my shirt to my computer to post here on my blog, but things haven't been working too well, so I'll try to post them later. Thursday we're having a Twilight night at my house complete with projector-sized viewing of Twilight and "team" cupcakes! In the words of Sarahbeth, "It's gonna be boooomb!" Anyway, just wanted to rant about my excitement!


So I'm at work today. My friends are at a craft fair, aaand, I wish I was there. It's Friday and I would rather be somewhere else. But, I digress...TONIGHT we make New Moon t-shirts! OH joy, rapture! I am soooo excited! I still don't know what my shirt is going to say, but I think that when I get with the girls, we'll come up with something. Anyway, that's all for now...

Apparently I don't know my own strength...

So... funny story: I got off work early today. An exciting fact to be sure, except for what I'm about to tell you. I head out to my car, I think I was even humming a little tune. I walk up to my car, grab the door handle like normal, and pull it. POW! The whole handle comes off my door! (A little back story: about a year or so ago, we were on a road trip and had stopped for some dinner. One of our friends came running up to our door to try and "scare us" and jumped up against our car window and somehow their belt buckle hung itself on our door handle, ripping a piece off from around the lock. Since we didn't consider it a necessary piece, and it's usually on the expensive side, we've yet to repair it.)

Anyway, moving on... it's never been more apparent how important that piece actually was until this moment. So, I'm standing there, in the middle of the parking lot, with a chrome handle in my hand, the door lock hanging out of a hole in the door, and my mouth agape. I wasn't sure what to do. I couldn't even open my door! I didn't know I was such a beast! So, I opened the back door and reached to the driver's door
and opened it from the inside. Looks like tomorrow I will be making a trip to the Nissan dealership to get it repaired. Until then, I guess I'll hafta settle for entering my car Dukes of Hazzard style. Lol!! Isn't that a mental picture! Ugh. Everybody pray that we have favor tomorrow with the dealership and get an amazing deal. (And by amazing, I mean cheap.)

Good times and celebrations,

Does anyone know the time?

I know, I know it's, horrifying! My New Moon Countdown clock died. I'm quite sad over this fact. However, apparently we're having a New Moon clock epidemic, because the one on Stephenie Meyer's website where I got it from is not working either. Boooo hoooo.

Tonight is Resound Conference at our Church. I'm pretty excited about it!
More to come!


How do you spell relaxation?

So...today I got a massage...at work. It was awesome! My boss, Paige treated Mary Lou and I each to Birthday massages and we loved it. I've decided that massages should be at least a weekly occurance in my life, and when I make my first million, that's exactly what I plan to do.

Tonight I'm going to the Ladies Night Out with Mandy Sue. Since we didn't get to do a booth this time, we're gonna go scope it out for next year.


OK!! I'll freakin' blog already! Sheesh!

Ok, so my bestie, Mandy Sue said that I need to blog more. So... here I am. I really do like to write, and I like to think I'm a little bit ok at it. In fact, I just wrote a whole page of my thoughts on the New Moon soundtrack I made. (Which everyone should listen to!) I just don't normally take the time to blog. I dunno why, I guess it's just further confirmation that I'm a dork (a fact I covered thoroughly in a previous blog). Anyway, moving right along...

Today is a sleepy day. I could totally turn out the lights and saw some serious logs right now. Actually, I could saw some logs with the lights ablaze. I don't even care, I'm just sleepy. Ugh. It's not even raining, it's totally a beautiful day outside, I don't know why I'm so sleepy, I just am.

Uh, what else...Oh Kev got me an iphone for my Birthday, which I love. There was once a day that I didn't get why everyone was so in love with their iphones, and I used to think "what a bunch of losers" until I got one. Now, I am THAT CHICK. I am constantly playing with it and doing stuff on it. It's ridiculous. I've had to reign myself in a few times because I was so engrossed with it, that I completely missed what people were saying to me. I could've promised the world to someone, somewhere with my absent-minded "Uh-huhs" and "yeahs". If there's anyone I've promised something astronomical to, please accept my deepest apologies. I didn't mean it, the iphone made me do it.

Oh, on a "crafty" note, I'm making a new breed of button rings for the upcoming craft fair to put in our HL booth. I've got some cool ideas, and I'm pretty excited about 'em, so I'm hoping the sales will reflect my enthusiasm. Also, at some point soon, we're going to get together and make our own personalized New Moon t-shirts for the midnight showing, and I've yet to figure out what mine will say. Everyone else has cuteness picked out, but not me. I've been racking my brain for a cute or cool logo or saying and I got nothin'. So far, I know my shirt will say New Moon on it, but that's it. Boooo. If anyone has any cute ideas for my shirt, please let me know so I can get some cool kid points from Krystle.

Well, that's pretty much it. Mandy, I have blogged...I hope you're happy.
