I have a hard time remembering to blog here. Whoops!
So what’s new here? Still making wedding plans. Just about two months away. Got my invites designed and printed by Vistaprint but I’m being lazy and I don’t feel like addressing them. Too much work. *procrastinates* We’ve got a photographer, yay! I’ve got almost all my wedding attire done. Just need some smexy underoos and probably one of those long line bra thinguses (and losing an extra 10lbs or so, and drag out my weights to tone up my arms.)
I’ve decided that I’m going to do my own makeup. I ordered a relatively inexpensive eyeshadow set from Sephora that had some good reviews. I don’t wear makeup a lot, so I wanted something I could use on a day to day basis as blue and green aren’t my usual colors. I also wanted something that’s long lasting and doesn’t all disappear into my creases after an hour. Plus it came with eyeliner and primer. The colors in this set are more what I wanted. But the reviews made me think otherwise. I’ve gotten fairly good with doing my own makeup with practice so I’m pretty confident I can do it.
We got Mark’s ring today! Just a simple white gold band. He’s not fond of jewelry and just wanted something simple to wear. I told him that if I can afford a nicer ring later, I’ll buy one for him. But I really couldn’t afford it now.
I’m trying to get back into drawing more. After I take a long break from doing anything artistic, I always feel frustrated with my work and I can’t seem to get anywhere. I still strongly desire to do more comic work, but I find it to be an uphill battle. I’ve been messing around with Paint Tool SAI and I really like how the color blending/shading/lineart works in the program as opposed to Photoshop or Painter. It just makes it a bit faster, and less playing around with settings. So I may turn to that. But I find sketching in Photoshop is faster for me for a lot of reasons.
Also getting trained on more stuff at work. Though unfortunately it means losing my weekends. I definitely need the money, so I can’t really complain. I just like my lazy weekends! But if things get unbearable there, Mark’s dad is also training me to solder pewter. I get to play with fire! Muahaha. So maybe after the wedding I’ll just go over there for the time being. Better working with family than feeling like a slave to a register and crazy customers.
