The Eve to Halloween

Hey everyone, tomorrow is Halloween! Unfortunately I am working but at least I get to see all the kids in their costumes. I love to see the babies with their parents and what their parents dress them up as.
I thought this picture was perfect for Halloween because it is creepy and weird. But I like the picture. Yesterday in French class I got back a quiz that I had taken last tuesday or thursday and I receivedan A- on it. Lately I have not been getting good grades, so it was nice to receive a better grade than a D. I have also been working on my pictures. So that's pretty much what I have been doing.

Perspective and Mind Matters

Hey I'm back,
Again I have been super busy. But anyway, I saw these photos of Siri Tollerod and I loved the perspective that was used in this editorial. The use of flowers as a border, so your eye goes to the model and not somewhere else.
Speaking of photography, I put up a flickr account and my account name is artnouveau5. If you want to see it. You can see more photos on there if you like.
Also, my mind has been bothering me of late. I feel a little vulnerable right now. But I know God is there to protect me. Well that's it for today. I also started a new garment at sewing class yesterday. Yay! Finally.

Here are my Pictures from the Trip
Posted by Picasa

Back from Sequoia and School

I thoroughly enjoyed being up in Northern California and seeing all the pretty Fall foliage. Unfortunately when we came home Sunday that was the last day that Dad was going to be in Las Vegas. Monday he came home and last night Dad blew up at Mom because one of his sodas was not cold. When that was going on, I went outside to not hear the arguing that was going on between my mom and dad. I did not want to hear it anymore.
While we were up in Fresno and Sequoia, I took some beautiful photos of trees, winding roads, and when we went through the coastal areas of California where we stopped by Meridian winery. I took some pictures while there which I have posted on my blog. I hope it comes up. Of course going through central California is always interesting because it is so unlike the rest of Calfornia. It is more like being in the Mid-West than the West coast with cows, orchards, fields of different varieties of vegetables and other types of food. Also it was nice and cool while we were up there. I had a great time.

Fresno and Examination

This weekend I will be up in Fresno, so I won't be checking in until Monday. But yesterday was so nice. I stayed home, did home work, and just relaxed. The only time I went out was to go to Joanne's to get material for class on Monday. I will be making a blazer. I am looking forward to making it. Hopefully it will turn out better than the dress did. The dress was the best garment I have made, but I looked fat in it.
Today I also have a final exam for my photography class. I am not nervous about it thank goodness like I usually am with my French examinations. Well that's it for today. See you Monday.

Today I will start packing for Fresno and I get to relax and stay home. I have things to do like homework but today is my day off. Yay!!! Plus, I got through another French exam last night. Unfortunately the quiz that we had last week I got a D on. Oh well. That's it for today, bye.

Rain and Balmain

Time is Running Out
Time is Running Out by artnouveau5 featuring Balmain
Hello everyone!
I know I haven't been checking in as often I just loads of school work and my life in general. I tried to upload an image of a recent set that I had made on to here but it does not show up. Ugh!!! Oh well. But it centers on this image to the right with the model I think it's Anna Selezneva. I love the military look that Balmain cooked up with this one.
I finished my garment and it fits perfect in it but I look over weight in it. I have also been working out lately so I don't feel as overweight as I am. I just need to be consistent with it. Thank goodness I have Dez and Mom to keep me accountable and God also.
Also it's grey and cloudy with rain here in California. Which is a nice change and its not hot anymore. Yay!!!!

Yay! It's October!

I am so glad it's October finally maybe the weather will cooperate and be cool instead of hot. Well anyway, lately I have been watching a lot of haunted things and working on hand sewing things for my sewing class. I have been thinking about what I want to do as a career and I was thinking of costume design. I love making clothes, I just want to do those really complex ones that comes from another time period. That would be so much fun. I want to make a corset and a period gown like from the 18th or 19th centuries. Or even a fantasy kind of garment.
Well, I have been very busy and that is why I have not been checking in as much. Hopefully I will be more consistent with my check-ins. Oh well. See you later.
