Ive always loved this quote.. mainly because I always dont have the best attitude when things are not going the way I had planned so it's a nice reminder to step back and remember we can always find the good in every situation if we try.
So yeah. I was pretty much gone all of last week from the blog, the internet, facebook, my emails.. one of those weeks where life just throws you a curve ball that requires all the attention you have and everything else needs to be put on hold. So I apologize for not being present last week here in Cyber space.. but i promise there was a reason for it and the reason was well worth it :).
I just have to say too that I am TRULY blessed. I have some amazing people in my life right now and its not by accident that they are here and around. Last week was crazy crazy.. and if it weren't for the support of those people (my family included).. well let's just say.. i am feeling VERY grateful today for them. My heart is full.
So back to life right? I have some exciting news to share.. well a few exciting things to share..
first off.. today is the start of the new Gilded Valentines workshop with the GIlded Girls! If you haven't signed up yet.. it's not too late to join! You can read all about it here. The projects they are doing are SUPER cool. So in love with their unique gilded style!
AND the second piece of news.. MY NEW UNITY STAMPS ARE IN THE HOUSE!!! wahoo! just listed them early this morning on the Scarlet LIme website.. so you can see them and order them HERE! This is actually something I have been waiting for.. so yeah! happy monday! lol
And my last bit of news.. this is actually just totally out of the norm for me. But a few weeks ago I was visiting with a good friend and was introduced to these amazing people.. Sunny and Bart Miller.. who are two really awesome people. The run and desiged a website for the very talented, Robert Jones.. who if you aren't familiar with him, he is a well known, world re-nowned makeup artist and hair stylist to the stars. He has won awards, books that are published and is just famous in his industry for his work. He also has a website where he teaches online classes.. which REALLY intrigued me because I always love to meet and hear about other artist who love to teach as well. Granted his art is in the makeup/hair industry.. but still to me.. that is art. Plus most people don't know this about me.. but I have a HUGE fascination with makeup and hair. LOVE learning how to apply it and do it. SO was excited there was a website out there that offers things like that. I never knew!
Well after meeting with them.. didn't think much of it until Bart gave me a phone call and said that Robert was going to be coming to Idaho Falls.. (little old idaho falls) to shoot some video for his website and he wanted to collaborate with me and basically do a head to toe MAKEOVER on me for his website! I was like what? lol.. are you sure? me?? im just a small town girl from Shelley Idaho.. I usually just throw my hair into a ponytail and call it good while I work in my sweats from my home office each day.. ME? a fancy makeover? lol.. but he insisted that Robert really wanted to work with me.. so I was TOTALLY in.
SOOO.. Robert is flying into today and tomorrow I am spending the entire day with him and his staff and the people at the Austin Kade Academeny in Idaho falls and they are doing a full blown makeover. Include hair, clothes, nails, pedicure.. and makeup.. and then tomorrow night at 5:00 my family and friend will gather and see my full reveal! The entire process is going to be video taped and will be put on his website for the world to see! lol.. yeah.. now you really are going to see some magic at work.. not sure he can help this small town girl.. but if anyone can, he can that is for sure!
and don't worry.. I will be posting the video here on the blog too.. as soon as it's ready! lol cause you know you don't want to miss all of that! lol
I have to admit, I am SUPER SUPER nervous! I am not usually one that likes fuss and all that stuff and i HATE being the center of attention. They are going to have a full on video and camera team there.. plus assistants and more assistants.. and I am like.. really? can we just use my iphone and call it good? lol I am so shy when it comes to stuff like this.. so i think it's going to be a lot of great moments captures on film. that is for sure! lol
So that's my news for today. Fun and exciting and unexpected and after last week.. it's going to be a great way to spend a day.
This week I will also be posting my Behind the Art video using this month's mixed media kit! so watch for that!
oh and I almost forget.. we have winners to announce for the Gilded Workshop from last week's post..
so here we go! if you name is on here email me and I will get you into the workshop!
