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.

New Years Resolution 2012

I have been up half the night working on my dream/goals board, which I I will post tomorrow. But then I got on my computer and wanted to create a set on Polyvore. (If you want to follow me there, click here) There was a contest too, so I entered it using this set I made. It looks a lil cray cray but I swear there's a method to my madness.

One thing I love about Polyvore is that it lists all the products and prices and location of items you post on there.

So, here is part of my resolutions and a lil bit of things I want that I want to get myself and not as gifts. ANd its not because I don't appreciate gifts when they are given, its just I can be very independent and want to be able to provide for myself and my family and to get the things I want for myself. Does that make sense?

This board kind of expresses my desire to take my artistic and creative side and do something with it. Since I was younger, I've always wanted my own clothing store and clothing line. But I was interested in so much more than that. I loved interior design as well. I mean, when I was a kid, I drew my whole house and every detail down to the hinges in the doors, to the shingles in the roof and the blades of grass in the front yard. I drew up blue prints of my room before rearranging it (which I still do) hahaha I cant wait to show you my dream boards. I am charging up my Sony Bloggie so I can take better pics of them in the day light. And yes, I had so much to put on my boards, I have Two.

Here's a pic from last year's New Years Eve celebrating the new 2012 year.

And here is the year before that, celebrating the new 2011 year! Hahaha Its funny to see old pics of yourself as the years go by.

This year, I have a few resolutions, although they're not really resolutions, because these are goals of mine I push myself towards least when I am not procrastinating.  hahahaha

So, here are my Goals:

1. STOP Procrastinating: I am normally pretty motivated, but its easy for me to want to lay on the couch or bed and watch Grey's Anatomy.  I can easily multitask, or have a movie or music playing in the background while I sketch, or sew or paint, but I have my lazy days. A lot of lazy days.

2.  Eat Healthy and Exercise:  I know this is on the top of everyone's list. I used to be so fit. I mean, I did 4 years in the army. Even 5 years ago I was working out religiously. But I am getting older and theres nothing wrong with me gaining a lil weight...but I am soooo out of shape. So, I have cut back on the fatty foods and have been building myself up slowly with working out.

 This is me right before I moved back to Virginia from Colorado in 2010 with some fresh ink!
This is when I moved back from Colorado and I miss this weight. This is when my clothes fit me! My goal is to lose 35 pounds.

3.  EAT>SLEEP> CREATE> REPEAT. This is my personal mantra I have started to repeat to myself. I need to push myself harder. I feel like I am not where I want to be and I am wasting my energy and talent.  This includes creating more, blogging more and doing more.
4.  Staying Positive: I struggle with PTSD (Post traumatic stress disorder) and depression. I am extremely emotional. SO emotional that I cry at hallmark commercials. I am not too bad as long as I stay on my prescriptions. I get my healthcare from the VA hospital and I often forget to renew my prescriptions, so I want to stay on top of my health as well. As long as I do that, I can stay positive.
5. Searching for Enlightenment:  I want to broaden my horizons. I want to expand how I think and feel. I am a true believer that what you say, you speak into existence. I also believe in Karma, reincarnation, destiny and fate. I am very spiritual and believe everything happens for a reason. And that we go through life searching for a meaning of why we are here, so I'm on a search and will do what I can to further my spiritual path.
I think that is it for me. I am sure my list will go up and down. So, Im curious to see what your resolutions are or your goals. Please comment! Thanks for stopping by! Happy New Year!

Approaching Mother's Day

Mother's Day is approaching fast!  If youre not quite sure what to get your mother for Mother's Day or for your wife who is the mother of your children (for all those guys reading this hahahaha) here are a few things I have picked out that I know I would like and other mothers I think would enjoy. Of course, you know what your significant other  likes...whether they are into art, beauty, fashion, geekery or traveling, cooking or being a full time mom.

The NOOK TABLET $200-$250
I snapped this pic at Barnes and Noble the other day
I have been eyeballin one of these babies for while- I love to read books and magazines and surf on the internet reading blogs or watching Netflix. And of course- I wouldnt be a woman if I didnt want accessories for it

Nook Case and Skin Art $32 here

I am in love with the Mystic Topaz. I want this as my wedding ring or as a set with a ring, earrings and a necklace. I love all the colors it reflects. You dont always have to get diamonds for the woman in your life- at least not for me. I love all gems and stones in any color or style. This is a good idea if you have a jewelry lover in your life.

Of course, you can always get flowers as well. Or other type of arrangements such as fruit or junk food! hahahaha

Chocolate Covered Strawberries from Edible Arrangements

Candy Bouquet for the junk food junkies!
For those mom's that love to bake or cook up amazing treats in the kitchen- there is the option of having custom artwork put onto a mixer. I have blogged about this artist before-but she def deserves another spot on here! I would love to get this for my mother or even myself! Check it out below

There are so many to choose from on her website HERE, check her out!

You could always get giftcards too for anyplace for your mother or wife to go shopping at. Target, Kohls, online. You could plan a trip somewhere such as a bed and breakfast spot or go up to a park or a beach for a picnic or a walk..or 4 wheeling in mud. hahahaha

Heres a cool outfit I picked for myself through POLYVORE, any of these items listed a mother would love to get!

London Love

AX Paris sequin tank

So that is my wishlist/list of ideas for myself or for anyone else in your family or circle of friends. Of Course, Mother's Day is not all about gifts, it is celebrating your mother for all the hard work and dedication and love she has given to you, or if your a mother yourself, celebrating your experiences with your children. Its a day for all mothers to feel special. I hope you all do feel special for Mothers day!

From one mother to another, HAPPY MOTHER"S DAY coming soon!
