a whole bunch of words and then an announcement



Bonjour!

Ca va? Ca va bien.

(hey remember when I was all about how I was going to teach myself French....well, you will be happy to know that no, I did not teach myself French in 10 minutes a day....I am a bad and lazy girl, I should get on that)

so, how are you? I took yesterday off from Studio time to enjoy the day with my bubs, we went out to Dick Blick where I spent, um....ALL my money, even splurging for the giant $30 container of matte medium, just to come home and realize that said giant bottle was never put in my bag, it was paid for, but not with me.

G- Damn it!!! Now we are going to have to trek back out there to fetch it.

Anyway, went to get supplies and then had a leisurely lunch in between going from one giant Halloween Superstore to another.

you see, I am in search for a jungle girl outfit, but they don;t have them anywhere, which surprises me, as the whole "jungle girl" theme is really in touch with the whole, slutty no clothes thing, which is most of the Halloween costumes.

Instead I found a lot of

slutty baseball girl
slutty witch slut
slutty slutty slut
slutty butty slut

and so on..................

I have wanted to be a jungle girl for 2 years now...damn, so far it's looking like another sad year, where I will just have to cave in and be "dark" Mary Marvel, and my bubs will be Batman, or I will go all out and be Little Red Riding Whore, or some other such slutty girl in a hood holding a basket.

Then last night I was going to watch the premiere of America's Next Top Model.....but then, well then we decided to make the long scary trek to Andyman's Treehouse so Keith could play the open mic and so we could spend some quality time with the power couple, Nick and Evie.

so, really...that left no time for creating anything new, I have a lot of pieces that are in various states of not finished but nothing really new to show off, to be all bragtacular about...

(yes, I realize bragtacular is not a word, but it is now).

So, that was my day, so today...........today I get to work, I spend time in my studio and ignore the sinus infection I know I have, I am going to work through the pain, like Rocky or something, I'm hardcore like that.

oh here is some exciting (to me, not you) news, I am almost at my 300th blog post....I know, crazy.

I am also almost at my 1400th sale on etsy (I know, even crazier).

So, part of me wants to have a contest, but I can;t think of one...but you all loyal blog readers deserve s little something for putting up with almost 300 posts of my blah, blah.....

SO here's the special something....

from now until I hit my 300th post or my 1400th sale I am offering all my blog readers 20% off all purchases in my shop.

Just write "BLOG LOVE" in the message to seller section and I will send you a new invoice!!

Until then, enjoy the newest piece in my shop, it's called "Like Flowers Fading Over Time"

no Jody, slutty butty can be worn every day if you work in the fashion industry, so you are all set.

I'm loving the word "bragtacular". May I use it too?

Bragtacular is my new favorite word. Thank you for creating it!

And I think you should make your own slutty jungle girl outfit. All you need is like 2 feet of leopard print fabric and a string of fake leaves--heck, you could even use REAL leaves, like, from trees or the ground!! hehe.

Congrats on your almost 1400 sales. That's big time.
Oh, and I think they rerun ANTM on Sundays, so you're in the clear.

Jenn you totally got to make your own costume!!! Tis easy really - infact if you made it so good then you could market it to all the halloween stores and make a fortune!

I am sad though - a costume designer who hates dressing up in costume - who'd a thought it.

Have a great working day!! xxx

:(

I can't sew, not even a little, not with a machine, not with a needle...when buttons fall of my clothes I throw them away.

I am sad, and pathetic I know...

i also vote for making it, the victoria's sacret idea is good. Just add fur, no sewing and voila. Bubs needs to be Mogli or Tarzan tho.

you gotta make one! you don't have to be good at sewing to make a halloween costume. It may even make you look more like a jungle girl and lead to some 'in character' wardrobe malfunctions.

Slutty baseball girl?! Seriously? That sounds like the best costume ever. Now I have a goal: six weeks in which to:

1. Find a new girlfriend

2. Convince her to be a slutty baseball girl for halloween

Totally doable.

Hey, I meant to ask you, did you see the first official still from the Sex and the City movie that was released this week?

Congratulations on both wonderful achievements! I think you should go to the fabric store and get some fake fur, and use it as a slutty toga...then wrap your hair in a bone, and you're done! Oh wait, that's slutty Flinstone's girl...

Oh...don't sew, use fabric glue, I glued my wedding dress together...oh, shoot, maybe that's an indicator of what was going to happen to that one...
