Welcome Fall!

Fall has crept in, and we have began to see the hints of official changing of the seasonal weather.


 It is so gradual in Alabama. It was just 80-90 degrees during the day a few weeks ago. Then, it began to get colder at night, and we had a couple of rainy days. A trickle of leaves here and there. Now, we’ve reached the 50-60 degree weather. In just one weekend, Fall explodes. 


 Last night was pretty cold, and today we woke up to  vibrant yellow, red and orange leaves. The trees are becoming thinner. 

And even though we still see flowers blooming. 


Fall is here. It is just in time for The Thanksgiving holiday. Welcome Fall!

In regards to the Smurfs and Trolls, they just make me happy. 

I love journaling. In my mind its a private blog. It’s a place that I can write things down as I process them. I love getting plain journals and collecting stickersto decorate   them. Here is my current journal. 


 On this journal, I have a couple band stickers. One is from my meet and greet with Ed Sheeran. 


And who wouldnt want to share a coke with this guy. 


 The Penetrators sticker is in memory of a friend who died from cancer. 

 Today, I got  stickers at a health fair for cancer awareness. I thought it would be apprpriate to place these stickers next to his. Also,  I thought it would honor all my family and friends that have fought cancer.

In regards to the Smurfs and Trolls, they just make me happy. 

Seasons Change!

I have loved traveling with this guy.

We have seen so much over the last six months. It’s crazy to me seems like yesterday this was happening.

That is a picture of our camper before we hit the road. We have traveled in over 20 states in the united states in six months. It has been nice to just hang out with each other and see things that we never got to see. We didn’t get much of a honeymoon when we got married. We had kids within two years of saying I do. So this travel time, it was timely. Now that we are empty nesters, life is so different. This trip has helped me deal with a lot of what I was going through. It has helped me refocus, and really pin point what I need to be doing in the season ahead. It’s funny how this comes right as the seasons are changing.

I know in the south we are all ready for cooler days. We all are even ready for a little rain. For Eric and I changes lie ahead. We’re both looking to get back to work and settle down somewhere for a long while. Traveling is fun, and exciting. It would be nice to do that forever, but seasons of our lives come just like the seasons of weather.

Smiling makes us feel good. I hope you enjoy.

 

Tapping Into the Artist Inside of You!


I’ve been working on a new screenplay. As I’m going through the process, I’ve also been watching some very passionate muscians perform. It’s amazing to me how some people can expose themselves through writing a lyric, or through a performance. First they’ve found a way to find out who they are. Their writing or performance mirrors their true self. 
Second, they have found a way to get that out from inside their body and mind, and written or performed it. 


As I write this screenplay, I continue to break down the walls that I have allowed to be built around me. Maybe the walls are their to hide from bullies, fear of failiure, or trying to be someone I’m not. I do believe sometimes we are unaware of the walls that we’ve built. 
I do believe that as an artist that I must continue to push myself until I am as vulnerable as I possible can be. Once I can go to places that are currently blocked, then and only then will I be able to tap into my true self. 

Attachments

It’s hard to believe that just a week ago, I was about to finish working on the new film, The Atoning. You can read about my experience here.

I met some great people, and I got very attached to them. I miss them so much.

It is nice to go to a place and just fit right in. I felt like I  was at home in this little town of West Point, Mississippi, and I left a piece of my heart there. The button that I got from the producers was perfect. I have it pinned to my purse which is always close to me, just like you will be people of West Point, MS.

Life On A Movie Set!

For the past couple of weeks, I was back on a movie set for the the filming of The Atoning by Michael Williams. It was a blast.

When I work on movies, I get totally lost in the world and it becomes my “new life” for awhile. The people I work with become part of my family forever. You spend so much time with others in this world in such a short time, you feel like you have known them forever. I love meeting and working alongside creative people. It ignites a the creative fire that is in the artist belly that needs ignited daily. This set was no different. I met and worked alongside some wonderful people.  A lot of times, you get lost and reality becomes a blur because all your doing is working, eating, sleeping.

On this last movie, I worked as the Priduction Designer. The production designer helps take the directors vision and make it come to life through the set, props, wardrobe and sometimes special effects. It is a non stop Job, and utterly exhausting, but it is so rewarding and fun. The production team on this shoot worked amazingly well together.

My favorite part is learning new things. It never fails that this happens because every movie you work on is different. For example, this shoot, I learned how to paint certain objects, do some tricks that I can’t speak of, and this shoot took continuity in my mind to a whole new level. 

Let’s not forget craft services.


On this set, the food was amazing due to this woman, and the fabulous town of West Point, MS.

In the end, you hope that your work helps create a piece of art that is suitable for viewing. I had so much fun. Thanks to Michael Williams and the town of West Point, MS for this fantastic expierence.

You can keep up with The Atoning on Facebook or IMDB.
