So much...

After going over the guest list today for Alan's and I's wedding, I just feel absolutely drained. So many people to include, and just not enough money to have the wedding I've always wanted. I know I know, no one ever gets their dream wedding, but I'm not really asking for much. I just want a nice reception with all my friends and family all together eating, laughing, drinking, and dancing.

I have fond memories of weddings from my aunts and uncles. The church wedding where the bride enters and all eyes are on her, how everyone is so happy and claps when the priest says, "you may now kiss your bride", and everyone then jumping into their cars or crossing the street to the reception where there are tables with pretty flower center pieces, a dance floor with a DJ playing 80's music, a fog machine, the bar where all my uncles went to drink, and a large wedding cake looming in the background.

Those were the weddings I remember and always hoped that I too would have one day. Now with the reading and tv watching I've done about weddings, at times I feel overwhelmed and we haven't even done anything yet. Just thinking about all the work to be done is daunting. It scares me, it really does. At times looking at the wedding magazines or the tv shows causes it, everything is so perfect. Yes there is a huge crew that sets up the photos and tv shows, but it would be nice if my own wedding could emulate them.

I know that the perfect wedding shouldn't be so hard pressed at the end of the day Alan and I will be man and wife, and really that's what it is all about. But, there is that little girl in me that has always dreamed of a princess wedding.

Snow White

So, I'm working on this snow white deal that work is putting together. we were asked to illustrate a disney princess for the Snow White anniversary thing. well, here is a first drawing of my snow white. i originally wanted to do a Pin-up snow white...but i guess that wouldn't go over too well, so she still has the pin-up pose, but she's just a little more covered. Right now i'm working on the wood creatures and when i get more done i'll put them up.

The Wave of Nausea

So, yeah no post yesterday. I was in my bed clinging on to my pillows and sleeping...well trying to sleep so the pain would go away. I woke up running to the bathroom to throw up...once, twice, three times.after the third time my stomach gave me a rest. i spent the day trying to hold on to the water and crackers i ate. By evening i was feeling better and ate some soup and didn't hurl. yay! today i woke up feeling woozy and sluggish but able to walk around and didn't feel nauseated.

Alright, to the fun stuff! Website of the day people!

Hostess with the Mostess

This website is just amazing. If you are going to throw a party, check this place first to get ideas for themes and how to decorate your event!

So as you know I'm getting married and I checked out the Bridal Party section and can I tell you I fell in love with this color palette:

Orange & Chocolate

It's so cute! I'm totally feeling the orange and chocolate togetherness here. I'd just use this color combo for any party. But yeah, cute! Not only does this site show you great color combos, it also shows how to set the table, what and how to make the party decor, and recipes for food ideas! (not only that but what drinks to make ;) )

So have fun, look around, and don't forget to check out their dishes:

A New Start

So it's another year and it feels as though my life has been thrown out of a fast moving car.
Since graduation last year I had applied to a bagillion places and heard nothing. After feeling depressed and having a lack of talent in my field, I took a chance and applied for a design job for Disney. Just a few days later, while checking my e-mail religiously, I got a reply from Disney, saying that they were intrested. I was so excited that I screamed and litterly jumped out of my seat while reading the e-mail. I called back and set up the interview, the interview went well and now I'm working there. I love my job, and the team I work on, I get excited when I have to go to work every morning, I know, I know sounds lame but it's something new for me.

Not only have a found a job with a great company, I got engaged! We wont get married till Alan is done with school, but its just fun to slowly plan and think of ideas of what to do. So life has been pretty crazy.

So here I am to share my life, my love of art, and the love I have for Disney.
