Well, as some of you know, in February of this year John (the man I've been seeing for nearly five years now) proposed.  This statement does not do it justice.  I said yes (!) and so began our engagement.  Now, being crafty, I use this fact as another reason to be creative.  Recently, I put together a scrapbook for my future mother in law.  Scrapbooking is not one of the crafts I have much experience with, so I found it somewhat overwhelming.  I went to a cute little scrapbooking store in the same building as my studio space.  The Crop Shop is a little shop run by a very nice woman who was extremely helpful.  She put me at ease about the whole experience and I left with a kit for making an engagement themed scrapbook.  (Actually she is in the process of moving to a new street level space in the same building!)
My favorite part of this scrapbook is a decoupage wedding couple I put on the last page.
I made them from pieces cut out of magazines and made them to resemble us.  I love the way the wedding dress came out and I just hope my real dress is as elegant.

A close friend of mine, Jenn, took the pictures at the Highline Park in Chelsea.  I love them so much and my scrapbook is better consequentially.

Time Off

Well, I've been taking a break, but that doesn't mean I've been idle.  I have several things to share with you in the near future,  I'm just not ready to share them yet.

But here's a little sneak peak:

I've started my New York Comic Convention costume! Last year, I saw such awesome costumes, like this one, of my favorite sexy pilot:

This year, I am working on my own costume.  It starts with coveralls like these ones,
but that's all the hint you get.
