So that's kinda the long and the short of what I've been up to. Jess gave me this great idea to try and take at least one picture every day. So that's one thing I'm going to try to do for the year... not sure how long it'll last, but we'll see. So I'm starting out the year with some lame photos I took today, lol. They'll get better I promise :)
Welcome 2009. We have great hopes for you. Or at least I do.
It's a bird! It's a plane! ... Actually, it is a plane. But it kinda looks like a bird doesn't it?
Very rarely do I get good shots of the moon. I just kinda like this one.
And what photo album is complete without the squiggly light picture?

Biggest news over the last month, I finally got a job. Not a theatre job, but a job none the less. I've been working at Michael's for the last three weeks as a cashier. It's been fairly entertaining, I've met a lot of interesting people, in both good and bad ways lol. Mostly good though. :) And actually, I found out yesterday that I'm going to be promoted to framing! Woot! Seems silly, but I do get paid a little more, and that also means I won't be working on the floor for the holidays... and that is definately something to be thankful for!
Theatrically I've not done much of anything really. I applied for a carpentery position over at New York New York for Zumanity, so we'll see if I get to interview for that one.
I've still been really busy with my artwork, I just haven't posted any pics lately. I'm about to go on a chunky page spree here in a minute, so you can probably look forward to a really picture heavy post very soon. I'll also try to put up some of the other things I've done over the past month. I just wanted to let you all know that I'm still here and still doin' my thing, I've just had a ridiculous month! Sorry for no updates! I'll be better... promise. ;)

That's as far as it goes for right now though, seeing as I haven't heard from anyone in the last couple days, but hey, it's a start and that's all I really needed. I'll be sure to update on Friday after I have the Best Buy interview and let you know what happened there.
Ok, so I have a new baby. It's a red and gold sunburst Gibson that I bought last week at a pawn shop for a really good price. (i.e. "really good price" = not good enough that I will tell you as I am still ashamed that I bought it due to my current financial situtation) I got it with an amp, seeing as it's an electric guitar, and I've been trying to learn to play. I have learned over the course of this last week that my fingers are retarded. Especially the fingers on my left hand. And they're fat. Nonetheless, I spent the money and I must commit. Not only to actually learn something cool, but also to prove to myself that it wasn't a waste of money. I got the strap for it today (I'd been practicing on my knee sitting down) and I also got a book with some cds and dvds that go with it, which should be much more helpful than the online videos I've been looking at so far. And with that I present to you my new baby....
....isn't she pretty? :)

I call her a bashful beauty. This one is my favorite.

This is the Pan inspired one. I drew from the show poster we had at the U of M.
This is my vintage pin up girl. She's sexy, I know. I love how it turned out.

Here is a card for St. John's Wart, used as a natural anti-depressant.
And here we have Shepherd's Purse, which can be used in cooking since it's a member of the mustard green family.

My journal pages. I'm so excited about how they turned out.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is my workspace.... lol. It might look a little tragic, but I can't seem to function any other way!

I really like this one. It's really interesting in that there's more negative space than colored space.
I like how this one turned out too. It's a little off center, but I still like it.
Poison Ivy. I kind of just made this one up. Turned out pretty well I think.
This I'm particularly proud of. I got the image off a google image search and thought it was pretty freaking cool. This was done in pencil in my sketchbook. Yay Joker! I love him.

This is Sally Sue. She was sent to me by my good friend Adam, and she was my companion on the long drive down to Vegas. This is her at 7 a.m. strapped into the Uhaul. (The hat is one that I made for myself, I just didn't have anywhere to pack it, lol.)
Here's my first loaf of bread ever, it's Amish Friendship Bread and it is delicious. I did good yes?
Here is my set of ATCs for the Stick It! Swap on atcs4all.com that I just recently joined. This swap was focused around using stickers, which I was so happy about!
My little fairy dream card
Old correspondences.... I really like this one, it's my favorite.
And some spring flowers just because they're pretty. :)

This next week is the week of things to do. Tomorrow I'm making all my important phone calls - tune-ups for me and my car, getting the electricity and gas turned on in my new apartment so they'll give me the keys, and of course the cable company. I'm also calling the apartment complex to tell them I'll be there and that I've had my utilities turned on and all that jazz. I have to go through the mountain in the garage that is all of my worldly possessions and decide what I really need to take and what I should leave and store/sell. By the way, if anyone is really hurting for some Beanie Babies, I can heal you up pretty quick.
Anyway, I'm going to be awfully busy this next week, and I can't actually believe I'm finally going to be moving. I'm terrified quite honestly, but I'm so excited that the excitement makes the fear bearable. OH! And also in my adventures next week I'm going to replace my camera so hopefully the days of dreary word-only posts will coming to a close. I can't wait to have it back...I didn't realize it, but my camera had sort of become another appendage. Soon... soon...
I think that's about all I have for now, more exciting updates in the very near future!

Right now I'm in Whitefish, MT visiting with my dear friend Jess. She's the Equity Stage Manager for the Alpine Theatre Project. I'm going to see their first show of the season - The Full Monty - tomorrow afternoon. Apparently it's been sold out houses the last few days, which is really good news for them. Also tomorrow, I'm going down to Bigfork to see the Benefit Reveue in the evening and see the Bigfork peeps one more time. So I have a very theatrical day in store, how exciting. :)
That's about it for interesting news....I still haven't fixed my camera situation, which is a shame. I need to do that here very soon. Until then, I suppose I'll have boring words-only blogs, lol. Catch you all later!

Living room. It has these two cute cubbies in it, I love them.
Here's a better view of the living room, sans cubbies.
A view of the dining room from the entryway, looking through the kitchen.
The kitchen looking in from the living room.
Behind the kitchen counter
My laundry. A full-size washer and dryer too, woot!
The bathroom. That other open door opens into the nook (picture down farther), the door I stood in while taking this was the door from the bedroom.
The shower. That I LOVE.
The bathroom vanity
The bedroom. My camera died before I got any other pics of the bedroom, but it's actually really big, that bed in there is a king. And the closet is a decent sized walk-in.
The nook connecting the bedroom, bathroom, and laundry to the rest of the house. The doorway you see open is to the bathroom, to the left is the bedroom, and the laundry is to the right.

This is the living room
And more living room
Built-in computer nook, nifty! (This will be my crafting area! Yay!)
This is the dining nook, and behind Wil is a full-sized washer and dryer. And yes, those are wood floors.
One view of the kitchen from the living room. Granite countertops!
The bedroom walk-in closet!
And the patio
