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.

So blogging was almost at a stand still has we started the spring Football 2011, I can not wait for the fall it's going to be awesome!! We have new additions and we have been reworking some things. Yea! So I will try and keep you updated.

First Friday June

Same ole crew
Yes we did get kinda excited in the soap store
Ok so this couch had felt on top and the leaves were fabric and in this area their was a tuning fork sound that made you feel reeeeeeeeellllllllaaaaaaaaaaaaxxxxxxxxxxed
ummmmmmmm hand mad soap
This weird tree house thing, it was pretty awesome though

My favorite store to visit on when we go to first fridays

Yes I have returned to First Friday. I went with the regular crew. Two of my babies have graduated from High school and one of my sweeties is going to the 10th grade ( single tear) They grow up so fast. Well of course we had a good time oh and it was soooooooooooooooooooooo hot!!! Summer nights in Florida yucky.

Lap Scarf Two

So now I am working on a New Lap Scarf, Check out the fabric. I am actually almost finished.

Hair Time

Ummmm where do I begin ummmmmm. I guess I will start with my hair. So my hair is growing back more rapidly then I expected. Go Figure! No No this is a good thing. I have been asked by many if I am going to cut my hair off again and I usually answer if I feel like it. So a couple of reasons I have not cut my hair again:

1. I am just lazy. I really don't feel like going to the barber to get my hair cut every two weeks. Marlon is cool it's just I get bored with it.
2. People will stop grabbing my head, it's weird when I was bold ( well kinda bald) people could not refrain from grabbing or messaging or squeezing my head. Yes it was that creepy. The main reason " You have the perfect head for it. I have to touch it" I shake my head and say no but no means nothing to these people. Since I have let it grow out I have not had this problem anymore.
3. I want some COLOR. you can color a bald head but to me it would be pointless.
4. I like that i could twist my hair. I get bored with wearing my afro and when i had no hair but I could wear twist for a year if I could and not get tired of it.

Well now I am bored with this afro, I have waited patiently for growth so I can twist them again. I have been wearing these head covers lately so now it's time for the hair styles whoohooo.

Hey June!

I totally forgot to say hey to June. Helllllllllllllooooooooo June. May went by so fast I didn't even have a chance to say good bye. Um I think June is going to be a good month.

Jacksonville Wedding

So the weekend that just passed, I went to Jacksonville for my younger cousin's wedding. When I say it was awesome! We stayed in an awesome hotel and all of my family was there. Now on the day of the wedding it rained and rained and rained and the wedding was suppose to be outside. Bummer right. Nope they moved into the reception area and it was even more beautiful. They also had one of those cakes like you see on the food network. I am so elated to have another addition to the family.

Food network cake( at least I think so )
They were so happy! I love to see this. Ahhhhhh look at my new cousin in her dress.
