haven't you heard.....

haven't you heard new year new classes. i started back at school this week, i'm so excited! i have ceramics and its getting better i'm making a whistle (and it works!) once i'm done with it i will show you guys. i'm also taking a weaving and fibers class that i'm so stoked to be taking. were gonna learn knitting (which i already know how to do that) weaving on a loom (i'm super excited to learn), and to embroider so needless to say i can't wait. i have a few other classes i'm taking just to fill out my requirements, but those are the ones i'm excited about most! 
Jenny heart of sublime stitching!  taking embroidery into the future  "This Ain't Your Gramma's Embroidery" !)
the first weaving and fibers class we had was just a lets get to know each other a bit better, and a why did you want to take this class? so i got to know some of the other students and not to mention my sister is also taking these two classes with me. (yay!) then the teacher had a presentation and she gave us a list of names and i just freaked out when i saw that jenny heart was on that list. totally made my day because i love sublime stitching.i look a her patterns and always want to get some but i don't know how to embroider.(i let my sister do that....for now lol) so here's to learning new things!

7 pictures of........

clemence poesy

the first time i saw her was on gossip girl. she was the cute blonde with an accent who saved chuck and i quickly loved her. Her style on the show as so amazing, mature but whimsical it was kinda a bummer that she left the show. then i went grocery shopping and there she was on the cover of foam magazine. she is super cute and i love her personal style and i love the photo shoots she does too.

how to hair do

pin curls

this works better with wet hair so try this when your done showering or just wet your hair with a spray bottle.


- bobbie pins
- spray bottle (if you need it)
- scarf (to wrap it up to go to bed to keep the pins in place)
- comb (to part sections)

step one- wet your hair of if you just got out of the show just towel dry to get most of the moisture out. we want it wet not dripping.

step two- gather a section of hair and inch wide and use your pointer fingers and thumb to hold the ends of your hair.

step three- roll your hair from your ends to the crown.

step four- secure your curl with a bobbie pin

 step five- repeat steps two though four untill you curl all your hair

step six- you can dry the curls with a hair dryer or just let them air dry once dry you can let all the pins go and volla! pin curls

all roads lead to pittsburgh

on thursday we loaded up the car and took a trip over to pittsburgh to the andy warhol museum. they had the marilyn Monroe exhibit photographs, paintings of other artists, and of course the screen prints that andy did of marilyn.
the museum was huge it has seven floors and a little tip you want to start seeing the galleries from the seventh floor and work your way down. something we didn't know oops.
if you ever have a chance to make it to pennsylvania i suggest going to this museum. its full of color and amazing work.
