I have been trying to figure out what it is I need to be doing, what it is that would be most beneficial to me and those around me.
I am still not sure what it is I need to be doing in my life, but I have the distinct impression that it is up to me, and whatever I decide to do (as long as it is righteous) will be supported by Heavenly Father. I am scared about what I am about to do, but that is mainly because I will be without any kind of safety net. My family is not in any kind of position to help me out on this if I can not find a place to stay, or a job to support myself with, or financial aid to pay for school, or if something comes up unexpectedly. I do not have a support I can see, and that scares me. I know I have the support and encouragement of my family, but I will only have Heavenly Father there if things don't go according to plan.
Not being able to see my safety net is what is most frightening. It is going to require me to exercise a lot of faith. I will have the best safety net there is out there, but it requires a lot of faith and exercising faith on my part. The unknown scares and excites me. This is probable the biggest thing I have done to date.
So what is it I am planning on doing? I have decided to go to The Illinois Institute of Art Chicago to study fashion design. It is an expensive program, but I would like to take my sewing skills to the next level.
I plan on making custom Wedding dresses and gowns, special event attire, and anything else one might need or want. That is my ultimate goal in this direction. I want to do this for both a career and as a service.
I am sending in my application with in the week and am trying to find a job and a place to stay. There are a few people I know in the area, so I am hoping I can get there help. Hopefully in a few weeks I will have everything settled.
In the mean time, I have a few sewing projects on the table that I am trying to get done before Christmas. Some are personal projects and others are Christmas presents. I plan on posting those, along with school projects, as I get them done.
Keep a look out for posts on finished projects.
And wish me luck!

I was quite impressed.
This is my carved masterpiece this year. I got around to carving a pumpkin this year and I decided to go with a snake.
I must say, It turned out rather well.
I hope soon to get up some pictures of my costume.... I think some one out there got a picture of it.....

My mom and I have been discussing this a lot lately, Why LDS guys are not interested and guys who are not are, and we have come up with a variety of different answers, the funniest I will share with you:
1) LDS guys are scared of girls like me and guys who are not LDS are not intimidated easily.
2) I am a curvy girl ( and a tad bit on the plump side), and LDS guys don't like curvy/ plump girls, and guys who are not LDS couldn't care less if I was or not accepting me as I am.
3) (and probably my most favorite) I am a curvy girl and therefore I am a sexual sin, thus LDS guys are scared of me and guys who are not LDS are saying: "Bring on the sinning!"
well, I would go on, but I don't want to take the time to remember it all and then write it down.
So you know, this is all based off of the interactions I have had with the opposite sex. Who had thus far won in regards of interest:
LDS "Boys" Guys who are not LDS
0 35+ (but who is counting)
Oh, the challenge of being a beautiful Single young woman, the guys you want are in hiding (that is if they are actually in existence), and the ones who just don't quite cut it are all standing in line....

great great grandpa on my mom's side
I love the mountains. :D
I have been busy/ lazy since I have gotten home from Japan. It has been hard to find something worth posting after the excitement of exotic Japan. But I guess I haven't been looking hard enough.
Ok first off, My job is the perfect job for some one who just loves Christmas. I work at the Village Christmas Shoppe @ a little place called Gardner Village.
This is my shoppe! :D It is a lot of fun.
Christmas all year long!
Here is our store mascot, Snowball!
(He is about 6-10 lbs lighter in this picture...)
Not only do we sell Christmas, but we have a little thanksgiving and Halloween stuff.
