Meh..Seem [
August 6th, 2010 | 2:26am
It seems like I'm just having one of those nights. No idea what to do and don't really feel like doing anything. Meh.

Looking for another job [
June 14th, 2010 | 3:35am
I have such horrible insomnia sometimes. I hate that I'm going to have to go into work tomorrow all zombie-fied telling people they can't have their discounts for whatever reasons. Lately, I've come to really loathe my current job. I'm not able to be creative, we now have mandatory overtime and I could list 1,001 reasons I want to leave. If only I could find something that's full-time and not incredibly stress inducing like my current job. I'd do great working in a book store or fabric store. Coffee perhaps? Anything but my current job. Call centers are rather awful for those who really dislike talking on phones.

Any suggestions?

Sigh.. [

Working on a Tardis costume/11th Doctor purse for Dragon-con. I hope to make the headpiece light up and everything.

Sleepless in Versailles [
April 27th, 2010 | 1:27am
[ mood | awake ]

I don't think I mentioned that I moved recently and now residing in Versailles, Ky. I'm still suffering from pretty bad insomnia but I've found a few methods that help to an extent. Luckily I requested tomorrow off from work to attend a protest. I think a lot of people won't show up due to the weather.

Recently I have found myself not only attempting to expand my EGL wardrobe but also working on building up more depth and options among my everyday wear. I'm trying hard to find ways to mix in elements of lolita into work acceptable looks. I've found that a lot of the cardigans and jewelry/purses can easily be thrown into a day to day coord. It really bothers me when I spend so much money on items I can't even work into my daily wear. I hope to resolve this issue over the next 1-2 years.

It seems as thought the Ky_lolita group is really picking up and getting active again. I've created a group on facebook in order to boost membership and communication. It seems to be working rather well!!

Tomorrow I hope to finish at least a dress and skirt. I'm working on a cherry print OP, a classic styled JSK, two polka-dot skirts and several other items. The completion of my JSK is currently my main concern as I wish to wear it to the next meet-up. I want to finish the OP before the one afterwards. I find by making more of my items in my wardrobe not only do I save money but I also improve my sewing abilities. With stress on my wallet that is exactly what I need to be doing.

Corsets and Berets [

Here's a compilation of some of my favorite bands as of late. This is what I like to call my neo-victorian playlist.

Aimless Walking & Old Couches [

[ mood | busy ]

Okay, please tell me I'm not the only person who fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it on Meta's site. So simple and elegant! It's just my cup of tea.

I finally got my old victorian-esque couch back out of storage. I'm going to hopefully get it reupholstered this summer in red and refinish the wood. It was purchased when I first moved back to Richmond after leaving for the summer at the antique mall for $40.00. It was my first piece of furniture I ever bought. It looks exactly like the one below in the image only yellow. I could like to stain the wood a darker shade however.

Lately I've been wandering aimlessly. My friend Chris at work thinks I've just grown complacent. I honestly think he's right. Complacent in a bad way actually. I find myself growing lazier by the day and I see nothing getting completed. I was so frustrated with myself that once I got home I started cutting pieces for my next lolita dress. I need to run to the fabric store and get some lining. I want to be able to use it as a sun dress as well. It will more than likely resemble my cherry Meta dress. Photos and pictures of my other painitngs to come asap.

Red Right Ankle [

"And how it whispered “Oh, adhere to me
For we are bound by symmetry
And whatever differences our lives have been
We together make a limb.”
This is the story of your red right ankle."

Red Right Ankle
Artist(Band):The Decemberists

This is my first painting in a series of paintings in relation to songs that describe me. I will also be doing paintings relating to songs that remind me of various times in my life. I'm a bit rusty but this should get me back into the swing of things.

Bummer [

[ mood | blah ]

We didn't end up going to the Koffin Kats show since Alex has to drive in the morning. We are heading up to see our friend this weekend and I may stop at F21. I'm hoping they're still carrying the heart purse I've been looking for. Also visiting the international food store. I no longer sleep at nights. Alex goes to bed and I stay awake watching whatever I can find on Netflix that I think may bore me into slumber. I plan on posting pictures from trip once we return home.

Recent Outfits [

Past three outfits I have worn to EGL events. Really itching to host a meet-up soon! Seems like everyone really liked the SWAP idea. Trying to figure out location now. Working on a JSK but ran out of elastic. Will post images of JSK later on this week.

Want Want Want [
March 15th, 2010 | 10:59pm

I really want to buy this jsk. Unable to really spare the money to purchase it right now but perhaps they'll still have it once I do. I'll just keep on sewing until then. Perhaps I'll post some progress images soon.

Meet-up Ideas/Plans [
March 15th, 2010 | 3:28am
[ mood | blah ]

I'm trying to come up with some interesting meet-up ideas. I know the kentucky theatre has a rocky horror showing on (Sat, March 27, 11:59pm – Sun, March 28, 2:59am). I think it would be really neat if we could all rent the theatre for a lolita meet/japanese fashion show in downtown lexington. (http://www.kentuckytheater.com/lexington-kentucky-meeting-spac/). I would need to contact them to see pricing and such. My only worry would be the turnout rate. I would really want a lot of the girls to attend and maybe some out-of-towners. It seems as though we have tons of members but attendance still lacks.

Perhaps a garden party could be pulled together but the issue arises as to where we could actually host it. Of course this means tables and chairs for all attendees which could run a bit high.

Perhaps something a bit more high end would be nice if one of the Lexington venues could be booked such as common grounds. I would love to hold another B&B sleepover like we had before. It was really nice. Too bad only three of us ended up showing.

Seriously! [

People who have nothing better to do than to steal holiday decorations are total losers. Seriously. They suck majorly. Guess I need to buy a new red reef.

Tiny update about my webcomic in process. [

[ mood | chipper ]

Okay, since our system at work is incredibly unstable I have been able to do the layouts and dialogue for the 1st chapter of my web-comic. I'm pretty sure I'm going to do everything in watercolors. I'm so excited about actually seeing progress!

Guess what? [

Tomorrow I will be posting part of Alex's birthday present. I may end up making another run to hobby lobby though for more fleece. o_o
