Sew Busy

My, sewing has been a busy (and lucrative) hobby lately! I sold another $45 dress on this afternoon! Once I sell off all these extra things I've had in my closet, I'm excited to start doing custom dresses. For now, I'm working on 3 bridesmaids dresses for a friend, and a Prom dress for Jamie Beck!! I also got a 2nd job, seamstressing for the Scera theater, and I'm absolutely loving it. What a joy to be creative with what seems like an endless supply of beautiful fabric, creating beautiful things, that get to be showcased in front of thousands of people! The past few weeks we've been working on "Into the Woods", which openned today. It always makes for a hectic week, working with a very particular but brilliant designer, especially when it comes down to franticly sewing on buttons just minutes before the show opens. I just love the theater atmosphere! Here's some of the costumes I helped put together:
Rapunzel's Prince Cinderella's Prince
The Baker
The Baker's Wife

Green Means Go

We had a little Noteworthy alumni get-together/newbie picnic yesterday. So many life-long friends made in that group! We were going around telling stories, and I mentioned how some weeks, especially in December, we had 3 or 4 gigs a week, plus rehearsals, and we should have been sick of eachother, but when we would randomly have a Friday night off, we still would have sleepovers, because all we wanted to do was be with eachother. It was pretty much a sorority.
The best part of yesterday: singing our New York set from 2 years ago.
Some things you never forget.
And our newest CD is out! I'm singing the first song "Unwritten"! You can purchase online at, or hold off, because you might just be getting one from me for Christmas!

Take 6 and the Monsons

We met up with the Monson family to see "Take Six" last night! They show was super, and the company was even better! Natalie is darling, and baby Josh is the cutest!

The Difference Between Boys & Girls

I couldn't resist capturing the typical table settings I saw on Caramel Popcorn Day.

Shingles anyone?

So I thought this bug bite on my back was kindof random, till it got bigger and more itchy. It kept getting worse, and when it started showing up on my stomach, I figured this wasn't normal. Turns out its "shingles". Random, huh? Well, its absolutely killing me today! I can't think of anything except the pin-pricking enflamed nerves all along my back and stomach!! AHHH! They say it was probably stress related, so time to cut out some stress, huh?! No more planning camping trips for me :)
