I’m up early today. I’ve watched tv, made coffee and tidied up a bit and it’s just 5:35am. Why? I lost my phone in the sofa (don’t judge) and to add insult to injury, my alarm rings from 5:00 to 5:15am ( discovery of the day. smh). At any rate, I saw this picture as I was reading blogs that I haven’t read in awhile and thought “how cute” and so easy to do. I even thought that I could write monthly goals, using the same format, on my daughter’s old easel that is no longer in use.  Repurpose. I guess I can add some paint and a few designs and revive the board. Wait! I work in an old school so my office has a chalkboard. Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

Traditionally, I’ve used a muted color palette for my Christmas decorations; however, this year, I’ve added a bit of color. Image

I absolutely love the colors!!! Although I have a colorful personality, I tend to love the “classicness” of neutrals. It even spills over into my makeup and nails. I usually stick to earth tones. Speaking of earth tones…OMG!!!!!

There’s no secret where I will be today. That is after I finish payroll at work. I’m so excited about this collection and usually they are hits or misses. I predict that this is the beginning of a serious love affair.

I’m also in love with fabric and have an extensive collection. Santa brought me a serger for Christmas and I will be taking sewing courses beginning…next week??? Oh wow!!! I’m super hype. I sew. I’ve sewn in the past and attended apparel design courses in Maryland. I’ve since turned away from my passion, only to engage minimally in order to get a skirt or two out of the deal. Skirts?? Yes, I love them. Hmmmmm…stay tuned is all I can say.

There are so many other things in the works. Oh! before I forget…Image

I can’t tell you how much I love Petrilude. I know people have issues with the whole drag queen thing but I see him as a very competent artist who enjoys his craft and to that, I salute him. Soooooo, when I saw this picture of him, I was floored. I mean like long stare and jaw dropped. I was… I am in awe.

Completely Distracted

I am writing a paper. I’m supposed to be writing a paper. Instead I am watching the ybf beauty segment on HSN. I am contemplating buying the Today’s Special. I am really captivated by watching the ladies converse about makeup and applying it gets my gears going. I am a makeup artist. I love everything makeup…especially new techniques and products.

So back to my paper. I am a Master’s student at IIRP (International Institute for Restoratiave Practices). This semester I am taking a course that is focused on Life Space Crisis Intervention (LSCI). I absolutely love this class. It is so enlightening and relevant in so many areas of life. Really, all of the concepts that I have learned since studying RP have been life-changing. I especially enjoy getting away from the city — my courses are offered in Bethlehem, PA. It’s even worth the 90 minute drive (one way) and I attend both days of the weekend.I know!! You think it sucks. It is the best use of a day. I learn so much, my professor is AWESOME and I get to meet new people from various walks of life (one of my classmates this semester lives in Maine and she drives 8 hours to take part in this unique experience). It’s great…really. Care to join us??

Does any of this sound foreign to you? What in the world is it that I am studying? Need more info.? … http://www.iirp.edu/what-is-restorative-practices.php

The following article was written by one of my professors. Enjoy!
