Sending Positive Thoughts Your Way!

It is Thursday, and I swear this week has flown by. One good thing about this week is that my mood has turned around. I had a meeting today to go over face/body paint I will be doing for a HUGE hair show in August in Atlanta and just being around the girls from the salon just put me in a better mood, which is what I needed desperately to get me out of my funk.


I am generally a very positive person, but when I am down, negativity creeps in when I am not on my game and can throw me for a loop, which is why I haven’t been blogging as much this month. When I get like that, I surround myself with positive people, or people who can support me and help to lift my spirits. I’ve been hanging out with my mom, my dad and talking on the phone with friends and it really helps.





It’s 1230 in the morning, I just made coffee and I am catching up on my blogs and just going through my planner, organizing all my upcoming events. I have booked a few more fun events and I feel so blessed that I am able to do something I truly love- which is art. So, anyone of my clients that are reading this- I just want to say THANK YOU! I love working with you all and so thankful that I am able to work with some pretty amazing people.





I just felt like writing this post for anyone who has been down or depressed or feeling like you’re not good enough to do something you love, or to take that risk in doing something you have always dreamed of. I know how you feel. I struggle with it every now and then, and you are not alone. Remember that you decide how your day is going to turn out. You may not be able to control what happens to you during the day, but you can control how you react to it. Instead of getting upset, take a few minutes to breathe, process and then just keep moving.







I hope this has helped to lift you up, because it certainly has helped to lift me up as I send this out to the universe. Remember, tomorrow is a new day, so make the most of it!

See ya next time! xoxoxox, Cecilia

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.

I'm operating in safe mode with my infected laptop. The situation on that is I think it's a virus, or my hardrive...I'm trying to back up my files in case I lose everything. Just waiting to buy a big enough thumb drive so I keep all my pics and videos and important stuff. Then going to restore back to factory settings, if that dont work then we will just see. but anyways...enough geek techy talk.

I just wanted to do a quick post and show you a few things that have been inspiring me and these images have been lurking on my desktop. Most of this is tattoo and tattoo art related.
