Unfiltered Chaos

The feels!

Alright lovies!

I’ve been writing and writing and writing! And I’ve made plans with an editor and my formatter for my upcoming book The Panty Blogger and Man-Whore in 4B. 

This book is a lot of fun and I’m having fun writing this story.

Stay tuned for more teasers and exciting dates, when I have them!

Worth the Wait?

In just 6 days I have managed to write more than 15,000 words. I know that might not seem like a lot to most authors, but I have been putting this book on the back burner for WAY to long. I had lost motivation to write for a couple of years. I don’t exactly know what happened, but I just couldn’t pull it together.
I am on a roll again with writing. I feel a sort of anxiety thinking about finishing it, because I feel the weight of editing, having someone edit, format, cover, betas and promotion. It’s a lot I feed to financially prep myself for.
It’s never an easy process. It’s full of joy, stress, anxiety and worry that no one will like what you poured your heart into.
The Panty Blogger and Man-Whore in 4B is a different sort of book from me. It’s not an erotic read, but yes there’s still sexy parts. There’s more heart and heartache. There’s strength and weakness. And there’s humor. I’m excited to write something a little more on the funnier side.
My writing has never been perfect and it never will be. I just hope I bring some sort of enjoyment with my words.

Party Hardy

So, here’s the thing… I love to plan parties. Do I get to do it like ever? NOPE. But I love it!

This year (for the first time since Jeff and I have been together -12 years-) I get to host the family Christmas party! Jeff’s siblings take turns each year, but I never got to do it, because we live in a small apartment. But, our complex has a community room that they redid all fancy and pretty like, which also has a kitchen in it, so I reserved that space!.

I’m the kind of planner who will not only make a list of what I’m going to cook, but detailed shopping lists, broken up by each dish and I make about a dozen different check lists (just because I forgot something on the original, so naturally I need to make another.) I have supplies in a tote and decorations stored with them.

Speaking of decorations! So how can anyone have a Christmas party with no tree? No one. So, instead of going nut and buying a tree to use for the party, I made one! Using a large tomato cage, some garland from the dollar stores and some lights…BOOM cute rustic Christmas tree! It’s super cute!

Also…

THEME! Yes, I whole-heartily LOVE a good themed party! And since this is my largest party planning thing I’ve done yet (maybe 25 people) I had to go all out dudes!

The theme you ask?

NATIONAL LAMPOONS CHRISTMAS VACATION

My favorite Christmas movie! Its got the holiday feels, all while keeping it real!

I have themed foods, photo stills of the movie, which I edited to fit the food it will m=be paired with. And other little surprises I have planned out to make yet this week.

Let me know!

In 2 days I will be taking part in my fir art show/craft fair! I wanted to share with you a few pieces that I will have there for sale. These are one of a kinds!

For the framed pieces I redid the frames. They were used beat up ones and I turned them into art 😀

Beauty in the UNordinary

I’m in the midst of a frenzy of getting everything i need done for this Sunday’s Artist Row in Rochester NY! This is my first art show/fair so naturally I’m freaking the hell out! I THINK I have enough pieces, but I’m going to make a few more. BUT! I want to share with you the larger painting I did yesterday!

This is a 24×30 inch acrylic on canvas! I added a texture medium to give it some dimension also. Now, this isn’t the BEST photo of it, but it will do for now lol.

A Little Bit of Rochester

I wanted to share with you 4 (so far) watercolors that I did, which are of places I love in Rochester NY!

First up is one of the BEST cafes in town JAVA’S I love the coffee and treats here along with the fun easy going vibe.

JAVA ORIGINAL

Next is another cafe I love to death is BOULDER. They have an amazing assortment of coffees, foods and even, yes, coffee COCKTAILS! So good here! And they have a huge collection of vintage furniture and old TV’s. Instagram worthy!

Boulder ORIGINAL GOOD

Now we have something a little different here. This is ARENA’S, a sweet eclectic 2 story flower and decor shop. Now, I love what the store has to offer and the people are pretty nice. I feel a little out of place in here when I do visit. I dress a little more on the darker/weirder side so I feel like I am being watched. BUT, they are nice there I promise!

Arenas ORIGINAL

And Last, but not least we have the famous, the amazingly awesome LITTLE THEATER! I love coming here when they do throwback movies! Its a cool old school theater and I just adore it here.

LIttle thater original

I hope you have enjoyed these little gems from here in Rochester. I plan on doing more over time. I will be making prints available of these and the others to come. I will have a handful with me in 5×7 at the ARTISTS ROW AT THE ROCHESTER PUBLIC MARKET on September 17th, 2017; along with many original pieces of work!
