The moment was calm, but you knew it won't last


Sometimes life throws you a punch and instead of just taking it, you punch back hard and it spins you out of control.
This is what lies behind this photo.

I learned how to add textures and layers in Photoshop today. I am really proud of myself. ;) Now I am looking into photography lessons, since it has been a dream of mine to use photography as another layer in how I express myself.
What do you think, for a first try...15min exercise? For texture credits please see my flickr.

Day off!!!

in Montreal
Originally uploaded by iva_o.
After spending the weekend (16 hours in total) in class, I was lucky to have the day off from work today. I actually have a few days that I will try to fit in by the end of the year. I hope to have the last week of December entirely off, to just sit around and not do anything. Please Please Please.

My little sis spent the weekend here, and today we shopped 'till we dropped. ;)
I bought the cutest little skirt and tights ( I never thought that I would buy tights), to go with the skirt. The combo with my black boots is awesome!!!! I can't wait to wear the outfit ;)
Now I am getting ready for my week, that is only 4 days long!!!

ps the Picture is from last month, when I was in Montreal

yey a little celebration!
Now I want 500 by the end of the year, and to reach 200 sales in my shop!
I can do it!, I know I can....

Where have I been, well I don't even know....
Working,studying, taking little trips..... New York, Montreal, Ottawa (check out my flickr for photos) and oh yah meeting new people and trying to learn about dating....

My mission is to be back on track here, since I really want to be able to call myself a full time artist not an artist by night.
