Tuesday Rah Rah Rahahaha!

Aside from having the Gaga song stuck in my head...

o. man. I am READY for the weekend already! And it's only Tuesday :*(. It has been pretty hectic with my whole laptop fiasco...luckily, it recovered! I am SO relieved and ready to spend some quality time with it up and clean up my harddrive...blah blah. I also shipped my first ever photo package this weekend and it was truely packed with love and care! I hope the recipient of this package is happy to receive it. I even included som extra goodies in it since they made a big order.

I also got the March Studio Calico kit in the mail! It's so exciting. Such a beautiful kit. I say that every month....but it is true every month...I promise! I can't wait to dig into it. I am also so fond of the Maya Road Metallic Mists I ordered with my kit this month. I got it in Pink Grapefruit and Latte. It's so pretty on chipboards. I can't wait to use it on the chipboard butterflies and experiment with it.

Ending on a colorful note, here's a pic I took with my point and shoot~ I love pretty skies! This is why I am alway armed with a camera...big or small!

Pray for my laptop please

Last night- while watching Big Bang Theory, Sheldon made me crack up so hard that I spilled an entire cup of piping hot tea onto my macbook pro. It turned off by itself almost instantly. It was a tragic sight. My dear Jeff helped me pick apart my laptop to dry. Now it's sitting in a bag of rice. I am so sad. I hope it will recover in a few days.

::wah:: mourn with me.

Hello lonely blog!

Oh blog oh blog I am sorry it's been so long since my last post! I guess there's not much I can do to make it up other than to launch a fully loaded ginormous post! Are you ready?!?

About 3 weeks ago I got my first paid photography gig ever. It was so awesome! The event was a Valentine's day event hosted by a local church. It was definitely more work than I anticipated but I had a blast! I had so much fun. Everyone there was very cooperative and supportive! The event was SO sweet. I definitely hope to do more events like this in the future. wow. SUPER exciting...a few shots from the event:

I also got to do a photo shoot for a newly engaged couple. GORGEOUS couple I must say. So in love.

::sigh:: they were so cute.

Anyway, so that was my major photography progress over the last few weeks.

I also got to do some major work with Studio Calico's "Baker's Dozen" kit since rain has been hitting San Diego every weekend:

First a tribute to my favorite dessert of all time: French Macarons. They not only inspire my taste buds they also inspire my art and photography.

Next up ~ a page inspired by an engagement photoshoot. I'll say it again and again. They're the sweetest couple...SO perfect for Baker's Dozen's sweet colors.

Of course I had to document the fact that I just had my first gig.

As many of you may have known, I am currently engaged and my wedding is going to be on Oct 10, 2010! I am just getting the wedding planning part started and it's quite overwhelming! So many things to consider...especially when you're trying to stay in budget!

Anyway...other things going on with me...

> Trying to become Yelp Elite so if you are on Yelp too... friend me and rate my ratings (if that makes sense)
> Looking to do a balloons inspired photoshoot....I need to find a model!
> Revamp my photography website
> Start a wedding website
> Find hair and makeup artist for my wedding

Ok! that's it for now! I hope everyone had an excellent weekend. I am watching the Oscars on my DVR. I will pop back in soon to share my thoughts!
