to get up and get something done!! It`s been such a busy weekend and really I just want to SIT! So while I`m relaxing for 30 seconds I have lots of fun things to share here on my blog!
First of all...I`ve been working with my new lense and new photo programs to improve my photography skills. Annie is always so sweet in volunteering to be my "practice subject". Here is a pic I captured of her the other day. I downloaded the MCP action for resizing for blogs....has anyone mastered this one????
Saturday was my Kandy Kisses Modeling Party in the Park. A chance for me to meet with local moms and girls that might be interested in working with me to take pictures of my fall collections. What a fun day. All the little girls were just adorable and as sweet as can be and it was so fun talking with the moms about all my fun projects. I would like to have about 10 girls to work with through out the year for my fall , holiday and spring collections...and I am playing with the idea of having mini fashion shows in my fair booth at the end of July. Soooo many things to consider!
I haven`t finished editing all the pictures yet...but here are a couple of the cuties that I`m so excited to be working with. I`m in the process of setting up a Kandy Kisses Models Only Blog to post photos of the girls as we go along. Always something new and exciting!!
Today...Annie Amber and I headed inland to volunteer at a Benefit Carnival for C.A.R.E
Castlemans Awareness and Research Effort
Amber had a wonderful time playing at all the game booths and bouncing in the bounce house. Annie and I manned the face painting booth....okay....don`t ask me to paint another face for awhile...LOL
I managed the hearts, stars, flowers...but when one little girl asked for a unicorn I handed it over to Annie. I did manage a monkey wrapped around an ankle, several butterflys and lots of sharks and worms. What a great way to spend the afternoon! It is my strong belief that ONLY in giving, do we find true joy...and I`m so glad to have my family and my health and the opportunities to give of my time to such a beneficial cause.

So here I sit Sunday evening...pretty tired...one bathroom cleaned and a huge messy house ahead of me. I have to conquer this because the next few weeks are going to be busy busy busy! I hope to get over 300 things made for the fair. My machines will definately be in high gear.
For those of you asking about my fall collections, the first will appear on my website the beginning of Aug. Yes, I know its kinda late compared to July when some of the other fall collections are available...but I`ll be running a little behind due to my fair booth. No worries..there will be plenty...and as a little teaser I`ll just put out the word "Clementine". I`ll post peeks as soon as they are available. If all goes well I might be taking preorders at the end of July.
Have a WONDERFUL Monday tomorrow!! Remember to find some way to GIVE everyday! You will be blessed...and you will always know true joy!
