What Dreams Are Made Of

What Dreams Are Made Of

I have spent the last week planning a trip to Disney World. I am not going to give a ton of details about it, but I am getting so dang excited. I use to go all the time when I was younger, but I haven’t been in about 5 years and before that it was about 5 years. This is huge for our family in many ways, but I won’t go into all that. I just have been thinking a lot this week about dreams. Where do gather up the material to base our dreams upon. Dreams are made at Disney World, but where do they start. I mean you have to have the initial dream to GO to Disney, right? Just a small thought as I was editing. TOOTLES

Finding Your Piece

Finding your Piece

As I write, I am watching my Facebook feed pop up with all these crazy comments. Status updates that honestly should be left inside someones head instead of placed in a place where others are allowed to comment and view your wild ideas. I have my own views on the topics at hand, but I would rather not post them on Facebook and end up dragged into the whole out of control crazy train. If you do not know what I am talking about, then consider yourself lucky! I will however touch on a few of the topics, because it does involve blogging.

I am by no means a great blogger. I am a decent blogger in my eyes, and I do try to improve on my skills when I can. I am a crappy stylist. I leave that to my sister who can rock anything you give her and make it look like it was made for whatever she pairs it with. That being said, I do try to improve. I can look at my photos a year ago and say that I am certainly better than I was at that point. I think if your photos look the same, then your not really doing yourself any favors. Don’t you want to be more than just average? If you pride yourself on having raw SL shots and no photoshop added, then I guess your doing exactly what you want to do, but do not belittle the people who want more. A person has a right to their opinion after all. I do not know many designers who require no photoshop work for their bloggers. I do know some who ask for little photoshop work on the item, but that doesn’t mean the entire photo people!

The issue for me isn’t trying to figure out what the designer wants. They all want something different and there are so many designers now that my head spins. My job is to find out what I like. What do I do best and what do I enjoy doing. If that fits into a designers preference, then more than likely I will blog for that designer. I laugh at this concept now, because I use to be all about pleasing the designers. Gosh… I did so many fairs last year I would be in 2 or 3 at a time. I prided myself on doing event only blogging, because I thought that is what people wanted. People want to know the latest event and the latest releases. This is true without a doubt, but it was exhausting. After a solid year of doing this, I had to stop. I was killing myself blogging at least once a day. One blog for me takes time. I style and gather what I need for a photo and then I take the photo finally and then editing and writing. In all one blog takes me about 3 hours or so depending on distractions in RL. That is a lot of time… I realize that some people even take longer. Realistically, blogging twice to 3 times a week is all I really have time for. Once I figured this out, I then thought about the quality of work I wanted to put out. It may not be a graphic artist type of work, but its mine and I wanted to be proud of that. Sometimes I edit more than I should and sometimes I do not edit enough. Each post seems to be a learning process for me. It helps keep me from getting bored with it I think. I see some bloggers who blog the exact same way every time. Exact same editing every time. It is good editing, but it just gets old to me. What puts some above the others isnt the editing sometimes, but the styling. It just depends on blogger to blogger.

With this long drawn out explanation, I want to say that I do not always agree with others opinions about what a good blogger is or how to tell who is better than the others. What I do agree on is that every opinion is to be respected. If you don’t agree, then that’s fine. Keep it to yourself or write a post about it if you feel so inclined to do so. What you should NEVER do is attack another person for their views. That is where the line is drawn and where you become the person who is wrong. The other person’s opinion could be just awful, but you make yourself look like the worse person out there when you go after another. Why do people not see that? Maybe it is hard to see when some have other issues which cloud their judgment, but when it happens frequently from the same person, then you learn a lesson in it. Lesson from all this…. Do not engage said person in any way for any reason! TOOTLES

Before and After

Baby, It’s cold outside

Baby, It's Cold Outside

I really can’t stay – Baby it’s cold outside
I’ve got to go away – Baby it’s cold outside
This evening has been – Been hoping that you’d drop in
So very nice – I’ll hold your hands, they’re just like ice

My mother will start to worry – Beautiful, what’s your hurry?
Father will be pacing the floor – Listen to the fireplace roar
So really I’d better scurry – Beautiful, please don’t hurry
Maybe just a half a drink more – Put some records on while I pour

The neighbors might think – Baby, it’s bad out there
Say, what’s in this drink? – No cabs to be had out there
I wish I knew how – Your eyes are like starlight now
To break this spell – I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell

I ought to say no, no, no – Mind if I move in closer?
At least I’m gonna say that I tried – What’s the sense in hurting my pride?
I really can’t stay – Baby don’t hold out
Ah, but it’s cold outside

I’ve got to get home – Oh, baby, you’ll freeze out there
Say, lend me your coat – It’s up to your knees out there
You’ve really been grand – Thrill when you touch my hand
Why don’t you see – How can you do this thing to me?

There’s bound to be talk tomorrow – Think of my life long sorrow
At least there will be plenty implied – If you caught pneumonia and died
I really can’t stay – Get over that hold out
Ah, but it’s cold outside
Oh, baby, it’s cold outside
Oh, baby, it’s cold outside

Tis the Season

Tis the Season

Barely any time to stop and play in the snow this year! Probably because we have none. The life of an Alabama girl of course! I enjoyed living in PA when we had snow to play in. It doesn’t feel like Christmas when you put up lights and a tree in a tshirt and flip flops. I only have one pair of jeans pulled out when it decides to dip in the 60s.  Besides the weather, it does feel extremely busy! On top of work, I have party after party and when I do get home I want to crawl in bed. It is a full day from 5am till 9pm and little time if any to blog. I will try to keep up this month here, but don’t be surprised if you see me taking a vacation from here soon. Tis the season 🙂 TOOTLES

A lot of people ask me if I were shipwrecked, and could only have one book, what would it be? I always say “How to Build a Boat”
