  1. Today
  2. Thanks Kim!!!! I did great! (I surprised even myself!!!) re: strength- it’s been a long work in progress, but I can finally admit that I kinda am 🤣🤣 I’ll post some photos in a bit!
  3. Yesterday
  4. Break a leg, @Corrie! You know what I thought the whole time I watched your video? You are STRONG. xoxo
  5. Thank you @Sandi Wiseheart! It was good practice too - I got a little stuck in the standing pose, and it was good practice on getting out while people are watching. tonight is the night! I’ll post some video & photos tomorrow!
  6. Brava! Brava! I love it! @Corrie this is amazing! (I’m watching from my hotel room at Rhinebeck, btw.) You are so controlled and graceful in your movements. The dismount was really good, smooth and natural-looking. I also liked (not sure about the right terms) the “designs” you created with the hammock/ribbon as you wrapped it around limbs as you did various poses and movements. So well done! Yay!!!
  7. Last week
  8. Hey gang! So we had dress rehearsal today and I got NO photos of my own performance. However, I did get a selfie with one of my best buds, and I thought I'd share to show the full effect. Also, I was invited to perform last night at a choreographers showcase. I did a "duet" with the studio owner - she and I handed off our choreography, and then after each dance (they did three - me, one other duet and a solo). I forgot that I liked TALKING about dance, and it was like a revelation to me to see that dance-dancers thought what we did was cool, and worth talking about (and uh, that I LIKE talking about it). Anyway, there is a link to that performance, and I'm gonna share it here (I'm the one in the blue hammock) and here is the photo of my finished makeup! I'll try to have a full photo of my costume next week (for the record again, I'm the one with the dark hair. :))
  9. Earlier
  10. So wondering if this really fits as "sewing" anymore because I'm only going to be "sewing" one thing. 😉 However, thought I'd share my full hair/makeup test. Will do a few more before the show because false eyelashes are HARD:
  11. No matter what kind of loom you're using – cardboard, frame, tapestry, rigid heddle, floor, whatever! – it's way more fun (and helpful) to warp it with friends. Hop into the video chat room and get warping! https://whereby.com/weaving-month

  15. A bumpit (mine are homemade) are basically like donut shaped net things you put in your hair to give it volume! I need three to build the height! but those gray streaks are actually mine 🤣🤣🤣! I do you think I need to get some white hairspray anyway so that it shows up in the actual show because I’m pretty high up there!
  16. I love the hair, @Corrie! I like that you put little streaks of grey in there as well, because Bride of Frankenstein. 😉. You could go a little heavier on the white hair streaks if you wanted to. I have no idea what a BumpIt is, nor why you would want three in your hair. But hey, what do I know?
  17. Ok, my first hair run. I had no Bobby pins, and my hair was slightly damp. So next run will be fully dry, slightly dirty hair, with Bobby pins and I think ONE more bump-it (I’m wearing two stacked on top of the other). I wish I’d take one mid-put up, because it was very Amy Winehouse cool, and I kinda want to just wear it like this all the time. Also don’t know why it’s turned on it’s side but 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Art Journals?

    @Lori M and @Dyantha Just poking in to whisper that it sounds like you could maybe give it a shot together? Hold each other to it!

    Art Journals?

    Me too! I just can't seem to get going on it even though I love the idea.
  22. Ok, so I figured out the hair technique I"m going to use, and drafted a fellow dancer who is also a face painter to help with the makeup. Depending on whether or not we have a friend come over this afternoon I *MAY* do a hair test tonight for fun. So now I need to buy a nude leotard and nude tights (I was going to go with a unitard, but after looking at myself inverting, I'd prefer that its not a wide swath of nude fabric 🤣🤣). I've got a white pillow case that I'm going to craft into the "dress" (attaching it to the shoulders of the leotard, like @Sandi Wiseheart recommended). My goal is to have the costume done by Oct 1. The routine is coming along *OK* - I have the full sequence done, and the first time through to music, in front of a group, it went OK (evidently, I'm one of the first to have the whole thing choreographed). I have a few transitions I need to clean up, and then one move I need to either nail in the next 23 days, or find something else (the something else is also cool looking, but a bit easier).
  23. Nope! I would sort mine....if I didn't lose them so frequently!

    Art Journals?

    @daisywreath I love your art journal pages! Especially the one with the birds. And I like the idea of starting out with a gelli print. I've been stressing over starting an art journal for ages! I keep telling myself that the whole point is to just get in there and make a mess and do whatever you feel like doing at the time and it will all work out. But for some reason, I am stuck! I love accumulating art journal supplies though! I see someone else's work or a video on a new product and I grab it, telling myself that this will be THE THING that will get me motivated but so far nada. So now I've convinced myself not to buy anything more until I actually get started and use what I have. Maybe thinking about it again today will prompt me to get started. 😊
  25. Thanks! She's really focused on university makerspaces, but I'll keep that in mind! (And maybe it will be helpful in my own work someday!)
  26. I find that the old cases are good for storing small items in when traveling. For instance, I keep my good earrings in a case. I don't want to be preachy or anything, but cases should be changed out monthly so you don't risk eye infections.
  27. Awesome! (If you need contacts re: makerspaces in public schools, I know some folks here who have been doing professional development with teachers throughout BC specifically about maker mindset and spaces, related to our updated curriculum, which calls for such things!)
  28. Stitch marker cases? You could sort your markers by however you sort them (mine are by type and then size) into different cases and mark the outside of the case somehow. Or if the cases come in different colours/shapes—even better. . . . Is it weird to sort one’s stitch markers? I just assumed everyone does this...but maybe not? If it is weird, then I totally own my weirdo status. 😎
  29. I wrote this after our talk today. https://sandiwiseheart.wordpress.com/2019/08/30/zoe-a-season-of-love/
