Happy Anniversary Card

I am photographer for real, I promise

Today is my parent's 31st annivesary. WhooooooooooooHooooooooooooo and counting. So here is the story. Now my dad came home late yesterday and was like. "Oh by the way Janine can you make a card for your mom for me to give to her on our Anniversary" I was looking cross eyed at my dad because it was like 10:30pm. "Daddy are you for real" He was like " yes" So I went to my room and started pulling out my paper and weird stuff I like to use and went to work. I didn't finish until about 12:30am. So my Dad gives her the card this morning and my mom is like " I knew Janine was making me a card, I told her I don't want any more store brought cards" I said Mama for real you knew I was making the card all this time" Needless to say she liked it and is not expecting another store brought card ever, she said it's a waste of money. Pressure on, Thanks Mommy!

Father's Day and Henna

This was mixed up on Saturday!

Ok so I thought I would try the Henna. I use to dye clothes with it so why not try it on my hair.
I but some coca powder to get close to a brown color. Well you can't really tell that i used the henna except for the fact that my two grey strands are kinda copper colored. It wasn't as messy as I thought as far as washing it out. Well I will try it again and see what happens. Maybe I will use a fresh batch next time.

So my mom and I took my Dad out for Father's day. He really wanted to go to Outback Steak House. hahahhahah so me and my mom took him to Outback.

Eartha/ Netta Style

Ok Netta will now be added to the style section, Called First Lady Style... I hope you are reading Netta
Who looks this Fly at church?
I want these shoes, they are super cute! ( they look like my size right?)

In with the New

Now it is coming to that time to get a new notebook. For me I carry a notebook everywhere I go, it's for taking notes and any other information I find. But i have had this since 04 and now I am getting down to the last pages. I feel really sad, I love this notebook, it tells me to follow my dreams and it documents what I have been doing for the past 7 years( Whoa that's a long time). I have found a replacement but I don't know I might still be looking for another notebook.

Graduation Time!!

I thought this was cool. Head Coach Cory Fuller was the speaker at the graduation, he use to play in the NFL, but mainly we cover his team in with 4quartersonline.com

I went to my nephew's graduation Last Thursday. It was quite emotional. One boy yelled out with his diploma in hand "LOOK MOM I DID IT" It was a small ceremony but I am glad I had the opportunity to attend.

Happy Birthday Pastor!

Sorry for the pics I didn't photograph it at home.

Sunday was my pastors B-Day and it was requested for everyone to bring a card and if they wanted to to put something in it. So i was like awesome I can do that, mind you they said this for like two weeks. Saturday was a huge day for me. I shot a wedding and I had not shot one since like 07' so I was a little nerves, but the couple and their families were amazing! My second shooter was amazing! The videographer was amazing! So i guess you get it....hahahhaha it was amazing! So I was so tired Saturday I went home and crashed. Sunday arrives and I hear my alarm at 5am, now I was suppose to get up and make this card but I went right back to sleep until 7am. Shame Shame Shame I know. Church starts at 8am! So I got up, slowly I might add, took a shower and fix myself right and about time I was done with that, it was 8am. I had a decision to make leave now or make this card. If i didn't' make it then I knew it was done for, it wasn't getting made. So my pastor is awesome so I decide to make it! To make a long story short I was 40mins late for church, but I promise I didn't miss a thing. Service was awesome as usually!

Workshop Fun!

So yours truly has been asked to teach a workshop, a fashion workshop to be exact. But you know I am a fibers girl first so we will start with fibers first and work our way to fashion. I am kinda nervous though but very excited! Hopefully I can develop workshops like this for high schoolers or even teach it in high school someday I think it would be fun and I have a whole lot of information to give. We will see how it will go I will let you know how progress is going and the end result.
