Magazines, Meetings and Shoots

When I first woke up this morning, I thought I would have the day to get caught up on some drawings and work on a few projects, and although I did get some things done, the afternoon and evening took a turn into a different direction. Don’t worry, it’s not a bad turn, but actually a very good one. I always believe that if you put positive energy out into the universe, that you get it back in one way or another. Also, that if you surround yourself with people who are liked minded, things just happen. Energy bounces off one another and you start getting these ideas that turn into something that could be a stepping stone for something bigger.


I got a lot done, I edited the Kreative Thinking Auditions video so the whole team can see what models we have for the fashion show coming up in June. Then, my friend, Jinaki (fellow hairstylist and Makeup Artist) came over and I helped her to design her business cards while we chatted about future business plans.


I had some phone call meetings with a videographer that is helping KT in a promotional video and also a producer to go over details for a photoshoot were doing tomorrow. The best thing I love about being a freelance artist is that I get the pleasure of meeting so many people in diverse fields. I mean, it’s an awesome feeling.

After our meeting, we did some storyboarding, which is almost like collaging, but more organized and tells a story or a theme. Story Boards you see everywhere from advertising, modeling, photography, magazines and fashion shows. It helps to have a visual aid to assist in making the mood set for the shoot or project. I mean, who doesn’t love a visual?

There were a few things that I couldn’t find in a magazine, so in those cases, I always turn to POLYVORE! Its like an online storyboard generator! Here is one I came up with for tomorrow


I am so excited for tomorrow, so I should take my butt to bed as it is turning 130am and I am the only one up in the house and I have a long, but fun day planned for tomorrow. So, off I go!

XOXOXOX, Cecilia

Focus on where you need to be in life and once you've reached it, you will see the people who belong in it.

Project Runway Final 4

I have been glued on my DVR watching Project Runway. It is down to the final designers and I cant wait to see what these designers come up with for Fashion Week. I have to say that I admire the designer Anya! I find it fascinating how she has an eye for design and silhouettes even though she has only been sewing for 4 months. She really held her own in the competition and I loved most of her designs.

She has a taste of the Islands and has a unique style of her own. She is so frickin cute and petite, and I can relate to her on a lot of levels.

Watching Project Runway makes me MISS sewing. I have been sewing since I was around 10. I remember watching my grandmother and my mom sew me costumes, clothes, curtains, blankets, pillows and I dont remember how I learned, I just know that I knew how and I loved it. Since I moved around alot, I would go to a new school and would always take an art class and a home ec class.

I went to a vocational school for fashion design and I loved it. I loved learning the technical aspects of construction, draping, illustration, fashion shows. I was sad that about 5 years after I graduated from the school that the school system felt it neccessary to cut the fashion design program due to "not having enough jobs available in the economy" WHATEVER. Dont even get me started on how big of an industry FASHION really is.

Anyways, I am getting off subject, like always. I just wanted to write this because I miss sewing. I feel like I want to do so many things, and that sewing has actually been put on the back burner for now, but its only like that because I am still searching for an industrial machine and a new dress form. I will eventually go back to it, but for now, I will just have to keep missing it. :(

Surrender to Your Inner Artist

Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.
