October Recap :)

Hello!! I have been a very busy person, I put in my reapplication to go back to school, had to take a big certification test for my new position (which I passed and am now an official front end supervisor, not super exciting but its better then working fast food! ) and new longer, later work hours (getting home 11 pm then still have to clean and cook dinner!). I did do a few things in October and would like to share that with you :)

Firstly I had ordered a calendar from Juliette Crane in one of my splurge moments (I got some grief for it from my boyfriend) but although it was more costly then I would have ever spent on a calendar, I love that my purchase helps support an artists lifestyle and I think that in itself made it worth it. Along with the calendar I got a surprise of a few stickers too!

I also had a bit of time to do another of Willowing's Fabulous Face lessons.  This is the 3 quarter portrait:
I think she turned out pretty good, I can't wait to have a minute to sit and do another one!

Also Ady from Doll Dreams posted a tutorial on doing a cute sugar skull ATC and I did one, then got addicted and did 5 more in a row!! Here is my favorite one I did:

She is also doing a giveaway in December for everyone that is joined in her Doll Dreams network! All you have to do is join, post her badge to your blog then spread the word! The prize is a free class which is amazing, I have yet to take on of her classes but I have heard nothing but amazing things about it and can't wait to be able to partake in it one day!

Myself, my boyfriend, my best friend, and her boyfriend who is also our best friend went to the Renaissance Festival in Maryland.  It was a blast!! Here are a few photos from there!

The love of my life who always hates taking pictures, this isn't a very good one of us and it took me a lot of begging just to get this!

We also went and played on a playground :)

So that is a summary of October for you, I have another very busy month ahead of me but I hope to post something again before too long!
