Well, I took a new job in LA. I start work on May 20th, and finish on Sept. 12th - if all goes well! I will be working on "Starter Wife" a new series with the same cast as the mini series that was on TV last year. This is the first show I've done in ages that is shooting over the hill - as in Culver City, or the west side of LA. I leave in less than 2 weeks and still have no idea where i will be staying. I'll probably be with my boys until I find a room to rent or a house to sit near the studio....I know I will hate making the commute over the hill everyday if i have to permanently stay in the "valley". So keep me in your prayers that this works out!
On another note, my friend Angie (click on her name to check out her fun blog!) had a blog giveaway for beautiful journals - all you had to do was list something quirky about yourself. My quirky thing was my collecting of - er, um, roadkill pictures. Angie randomly drew three winners and I was one of them! Today i received my beautiful prize, and a postcard from Angie that she hand picked just for me:
Isn't that a hoot? Yes, that is a postcard! Where did she ever find it? Ha!ha!
OK. remember last week when I had my hair recolored after almost a year? He couldn't put the highlights in it then, it needed to "rest". So i went back on Thursday - i wanted something different - but no blond this time. He rally worked on reconditioning it too. Here are some pics - i am very pleased! Amazing how new hair can make you feel SO good!
...and here are some earrings I made. They are pretty simple - i patinaed and sealed the birds , then strung them on fine silver wire with amethysts and swarovski crystals. I am also working a a miniature rosary, but i was 2 swarovski crystals short, so I had to order more...what a bummer....Hand is doing better - still numb, but I am able to ride my back again and lift weights. Gotta get back in shape and build up my stamina for the job ahead.
