New Wall Art

I love a good craft project and this one was one I've been wanting to do for a while. I found a piece of art that I wanted as a large poster on my wall. Digging deeper I found it would have cost me way over $70 to blow up. So I started to craft up a Idea to make it myself. I had a 3 piece canvas art on my wall already I took measurements of how big the 3 pieces were together and use that size for how large my print needed to be. Next I went to blockposters.com. they can take your image and blow it up to print it out yourself. You can choose how large you want it by picking how many sheets of paper across and up to print. Mine ended up using 20 sheets of printer paper
I painted the canvas white (it took a couple coats). Next I cut all the edges from my blockposters printed sheets... all 20 of them. They print out with a border on all edges. I left the boarder on the outside edges in case I needed it (I did), this was what took the longest.
With my print being 5 sheets across I started by modge podging from the center and then working my way out. I used the canvas edge to measure when I had to cut the paper in half. I love the final results. the paper was deffenatly wrinkled and in a lot of areas but I found I liked the texted it gave the print when I was done. See for yourselves Enjoy

On the Road of One Nighters

This boring I woke up in a small town in Iowa, in a hotel in the middle of a field. I found my self asking what day it was thinking to myself when was the last time I knew the answer to that question. In a week of one nighters on the road everything meshes it's self together. My life is planned for me min by min. There's a time to wake up a time to get on a bus a time to stop and eat lunch, a time to arrive at a destination you don't always remember because your in a new state every day. not much time before a soundcheck and the time for the show to start a time for it to end, Time to get back to the new hotel to check in and shower and sleep. and Finally a new time to wake up to get on a bus to start off to a new place.

Today is Sun (so I found out) the day before Halloween. I'm a lover of Holidays and as much as I fight to keep my holiday spirit alive, this year it feels as if my candle has been blown out. I would love nothing more than to dress up like a witch bob for apples, carve pumpkins, decorate with spider webs, take my niece and nephew out, and thrive on that high you get when the holidays are around. This year I a Carved a pumpkin (alone in my hotel room) I dressed up, but I feel a little robbed still, Beacause as I am writing this it has passed midnight and it's officially Halloween. I will get on a bus and drive into a show. and hope that next year will be better.

Here I am now

It feels like it has been forever since I have last posted on this blog page... and looking at the last post I am correct in my feelings. I am On Tour still with Beauty and the Beast As "Madame de la Grand Bouche." Having started Rehearsals Jan 1 2010. We are nearly at 500 shows. I'll get back the the truth soon. I just agreed to another 6 month term, meaning that my new contract will end April 1, 2012. It doesn't feel like it's been a year and a half at all. I always miss my family and friends, and not having someone to think about or having that someone to think about me is taking a little toll on my heart and head.

Owen Sweet Goodnight 07/04/2010

My last night in Kansas before we I head out to alberqurque. I tuck Owen in, read him his favorite book which he knows by heart. It's called "I like it when." He is interactive with it, and does something on every page.

I like it when we hold hands,(we hold hands) I like when you let me help (he says thank you) I like it when we eat know things (suprise), I like it when you read me stories (book), I like it when we splash about (bath), I like it when you hug me tight (we hug), I like it when you tickle me (before I even get to the word tickel he scrunches up and smiles big then I tickel), I like it when we kiss goodnight (we blow kisses), I love you I love you too.

on the last page it reads "I love you", and he said it to me. we blew each other kisses and he giggled and closed his eyes as I turned out the light. Good night sweet owen. Goodnight Kansas.

Ahh the beginning of spring the end of a big audition season

It is april and there arn't too many auditions going on right now. So my question is what do I do right now when the only thing I am doing in my life right now is auditioning? Several things have happened since being back from tour.

For one thing I have started going to voice gym. It's just a great thing I am doing on Mondays. I get 20 min with a pianist for $20. and I can do what ever I want. Mostly I am using it right now to try out new songs that I am finding EVERY WEEK, and It's also a great resource to prat ice my material for auditions in the upcoming week, or call backs. What little I am getting. Also I am constantly looking for new material I am sure the NYPL should know my face by heart this week alone I have been 3 times, and It's wed.

Let discuss an audition I had today for a cruise line. It is my first audition in almost 2 1/2 weeks. I went home for a week and last week there was NOTHING! Anyway, I go to the audition today for a show (Smokey Joes) which I am thinking I am perfect for. I Walk into the room sang my song perfectly. I was relaxed and really felt the song. Well they didn't and after my first 16 bars I received a lovely thank you! ugh!!! That's all I have to say about that...well and on to the next one.

End of Tour

Ok Since I was not good at updating my blog, here is the most recent activity. I am done with the cinderella tour (for now) I finshed the tour at the end of January, and went home to spend 3 wonderful weeks with my famil. I hung out with my sister and played and played and played with my niece and nephews. I am currently back in New York where I am back auditioning, and trying to find my theatre gigs. pray for me, and cross your fingers.

I had one of the biggest adventures of my life. Really it was and eye opening expierence. I have leared so much from the different cultures, my castmates, and even about myself.

What I do know about continuation of the tour is only a rumors and nothing is offical. But so far it looks like the tour is going back to Asia in Jan 2010 and in the states next year fall. But It's all speculation. We shall see what the economy does.

I guess since the tour is over I will consider how I will continue this blog. Stay tuned!
