ugh, I feel like I'm just ignoring my journal now. I'm up to the same old same old. Stuck in a dead end job... trying to find something fashion related; but no one is interested in hiring / taking in interns right now. Everyone in that field should know what I'm talking about. However, I did get some really good news last night. I don't think I posted this but my dad got laid off back in April. He called me last night all excited that he found a new job. It's stuff he really wasn't applying for (he'll be delivering scaffolding to carpenters; he's been applying to electrical/maintenance jobs) but it's a job. A good one at that too~! He'll be driving back and forth from Ohio to Michigan and will be paid $25 an hour. I'm really happy for him. Now if only I can find a better job. *lol* So, what's new with the lj-crowd?

Well, my mom and brother took Shaye to the vets to put her to sleep. She was getting so bad that it was painful for her to stand up to go to the bathroom... my poor doggy. I'm just happy that she's not suffering anymore...

Anyways, in happier news, my brother jumped the gun and got married on Halloween in front of the judge. So, now I have a bridesmaid's dress that I probably will not wear. :/ Also, his wife will know the sex of the baby on Wednesday. I'm so excited... I want it to be a girl. I'm tired of being surrounded by boys. =P Plus I want to make frilly cute things for the baby.

In school news, this is my last week and I am done forever~! I can't believe I'll be graduating soon. I just finished my portfolio work and am way~ behind on my dresses for collection. I need to stay up all night tomorrow night and Wednesday night to finish. I should be okay though... I hope. XD

Pictures later~!

Senior Collection Ideas [Oct. 7th, 2008|09:09 pm]

So, I missed the first day of class... I'm still recovering from my crappy 100 degree fever. >.< I found out that I need to have my inspiration picked out and start my concept paper by next class (aka Thursday) for my senior collection. I'm thinking about doing a collection inspired by an English Garden (maybe for tea time!?). Here's some ideas I came up with tonight... let me know what you think... I'm sure more will pop up tomorrow~

such a huge procrastinator [Sep. 11th, 2008|12:44 pm]

yeah... still haven't had time to upload those photos I promised. (^^);; I will get those up as soon as this quarter is over (about 2 more weeks).

I have fallen so far behind in my tailoring class that it's not even funny. Basically because the serger made my wool pieces a whole size smaller! (; n ;) So I had to re-cut everything.... plus I need to go buy a little bit more wool for my lining, unless the serged piece will work (haven't checked yet). Yesterday was a pretty exciting day. My class had a field trip to America's Mart in the apparel building. It has been about a year since I went downtown, so the scenery was quite nice. I was going to walk to Centennial Park, but decided against it since traffic was about to get worse. Anywyas, We got to talk to Michelle Harrison who is a very lovely person. Her show room is huge~ offering 40 different collections! Plus, I got a free book featuring Ugo Zaldi's sketches (nice)!! I would love to have an internship with her or even work for her. After talking with her, we were free to shop the mart (only with the stores with the huge signs saying "SAMPLES" because this is basically a whole sale place. =P I found many lovely samples I would have loved to take home (one was a $18,000 ring... yeah, no way I could afford it... but very lovely). I decided not to get anything though since food is my number one priority. Raising prices does not help me at all!

In other non-school related news. I will be moving to a different building in my complex. Why you my ask? Because I can no longer afford where I am at. We are upgrading to a 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment and adding a room mate. Hopefully everything will go well with that. =P Mostly because I stay up until 4 am in the morning sewing.

I also found out a few weeks ago that Shaye, my brother's dog that my parents took in after Bailey was born, has bone cancer. (; n ;) She has the worst kind and nothing can really be done for her. The vets assume that she only has a few more months left before she will die.

sorry it's been a dog's age since I posted. I've been super busy between going to school and working. I finally got Sunday off and today, so I'm catching up on my sleep. I'm also stressing the hell out. Finals is in two weeks. I'm not worried about my Fashion Survey/Seminar class... all I have left in that is to draw a dress inspired by a building. I'm definitely doing the Swan House. <3 The class I'm stressing about is my Studio III class. I have two weeks left and I'm still working on my mock up (thanks to my survey/seminar class and work). Also, I had to order my fabric online since Atlanta has no choices in fabric. (; - ;) Delivery time will be anywhere from 5-10 days.... gah! That would only leave me a week to put my evening gown together. So, it'll be a while until I post pictures up of everything I did this quarter. Can't wait to graduate in December yo!
