Halloween is TOMORROW

I LOVE HALLOWEEN! It is such an exciting holiday. I love dressing up and all the spooky stuff (oh and candy).

This weekend is the Spooky Ballet - starting tomorrow. It is a FABULOUS show. Matt & his mom have put together an amazing piece of art! If you live close to Fargo - I HIGHLY recommend you check it out.

Friday, October 31, 2008 @ 7:00pm
Saturday, November 1, 2008 @ 2pm & 7pm!


Fargo Theatre - Downtown Fargo

Ticket Prices:
Evening performances - $12 adult / $8 student
Matinee performance - $7.50 (ALL)

Dress up - because there is a costume contest for ALL ages, with amazing prizes!

On another note: If you are a MemoryWorks Consultant - they are holding a call for new Creative Team members (now called TeamWorks) - you should have recieved an email. Being on the creative team requires more than just creating projects - a big part of being on the team is supporting consultants, answering questions, participating regularly on the message board, and other business support. Doing these extra things is a requirement to hold a place on the team. MemoryWorks is an independence consultanting company - they carry products from some of the HOTTEST vendors in the scrapbook industry including BasicGrey, Cosmo Cricket, WRMK, and Heidi Swapp (to name a few).

If you have questions about being a Creative Team member - let me know. I've been a part of the team for the past almost 2 years. I'd be happy to help answer any questions.

STAY TUNE TO more Spooky Ballet pictures this weekend!

27 October 2008


Yesterday the Fargo - Moorhead Ballet company & cast of Spooky Ballet 2008 traveled to Detroit Lakes (an hour away from Fargo) to perform Spooky Ballets at the Historic Holmes Theater! It was a lot of fun - and very exhausting day.

First, the weather was HORRIBLE! It was like a blizzard...so roads were just crappy to drive on. To be safe I was driving 40 in a 65 zone... but so was every one else - the roads were so slippery. I am just not ready for winter - but thankfully it didn't stay.

During the day the cast had rehearsal and the performance was at 4pm. The cast did amazing. I took pictures during rehearsal and also during the performance. I got some great shots! This cast did a truly amazing job and I can't wait to see them in Fargo this upcoming weekend. They have 3 performances this weekend - Oct 31 @ 7pm & Nov. 1 @ 2pm & 7pm!

Matt is doing an amazing job. He did an excellent job choreographing and he is an awesome performer! I am so proud of him.

It's Spooky Time

I have attended a few Spooky Ballet rehearsals and got some good shots. I am REALLY excited to get some stage shots though. Tomorrow the show is traveling to Detroit Lakes and than next weekend it will be at the Fargo Theater. The show is going to be awesome. Here are a few pictures from rehearsal.

New Desk Chair

My bosses recently purchased a neighboring building. The previous owners left desks, desk chairs, phones, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. So today my boss & I went over there to take a look at what we wanted. We both got new desk chairs (new to us). Her desk chair squeeked and was missing a bolt - but she was too picky to go buy a new one...but the one we found suits her perfectly! I got a new chair too... it's blk and leather. It's a lot bigger than my previous chair.

That is my excitement for MONDAY!

I took some pictures of Spooky Ballet rehearsal last night - I will try to post some soon.

I finished Kathy's Legwarmers last night. I"m really happy how they turned out. They are so little too - but really long. They measure at about 26 1/2" long. :) But the circumference is small...she has little legs. So here are the pictures I took of them last night. I will give them to her today.




The original ribbon I was going to use was too wide and stiff. So I used 2 different colored ribbons together (the same colors that was in the thicker ribbon). I am happy with the results!!

I know that is not how you spell "spooky". :) I've been so busy lately. The Spooky Ballet is coming up for the FM Ballet and I've been working hard on the program. It is clean and basic - but I don't think anything fancy is needed. The cover art is amazing (done by a local artist), and I used some "scary" type font for the inside titles. But for the most part it is classy. This weekend I'm going to start attending rehearsals so I can take pictures and become familiar with the different pieces of dance. That way when it gets to the stage I will know when to capture the moment.

If you want to know more information on the FM Ballet check out their website at www.fmballet.org. If you want to know know more about the Spooky Ballet - email me at laceybugcreations@yahoo.com.

In other news, I finished Kathy's (Matt's mom) legwarmers last night. Well I finished knitting them, I still need to stitch them up and add the ribbon on top. They turned out very nice. I will take a picture and post once they are done!

Well that is my update today...nothing super exciting.

Blog surfing

Have you ever clicked the "next blog" button... I do it occasionally. It is interesting to see other people's blogs. Most the time I hit on some foreign language that I do not understand - but I love to see what it is about (hopefully through pictures). Oh, and people blog about EVERYTHING. It is sooo cool. Everyone has a different focus - whether it be personal, jewelry, photography, clothing, sports, etc. It is super cool to see the differences in each individual's blog.

You should definitely BLOG Surf someday when you have a second. You may discover a new site or online friend!

It's october

I can't believe how quickly this fall is moving. I'm definitely not ready for winter. I thought I would share some pictures from the past month.

First pictures from Matt's Birthday - we celebrated at the Hub (a club in town). It was a lot of fun and we got to dance!!
Matt & Myself
our friend Ann, Matt & Myself
Matt, Myself, & AJ

I also went to Vegas this month and have a few pictures of my parents and myself. OH and I won $86!!
Me & my mom & dad
My mom & I

Next, my friend Liz got married in September. Here is a picture of my high school friends... I don't get to see them often. :(

Jaimie, Myself, Nicole, Liz (the bride - obviously), Alison, Dana, Kristen, & Missy

Last night we had a gathering at my friend Becky's apt. Some friends are in town (college friends) that we don't get to see often - so we played 'Singstar' & Guitar hero at Becky's. This is a picture of Kate & I.

Oh and we also had Candy Necklaces... :)

Finally, my pink legwarmers (note: this is a HORRIBLE picture - i didn't do any photo editing to it...so the light is bad bad bad and the color is off). But they are pink legwarmers with orange ribbon on the top.


There you have it - my life in the last month (for the most part)... :)

09 October 2008


I had a lot of fun in Las Vegas with my parents. My mom & I shopped a lot while my dad worked. In the evenings we would go to dinner with people my dad worked with or did business with. It was a lot of fun and yummy food!! I took a few pictures which I will post soon. The weather was amazing. In the 80s!! Which was a nice change from North Dakota weather.

Today is Matt's Birthday - Happy Birthday BABY (he doesn't read this - but I thought I would still give him a SHOUT OUT!)!! We are going dancing tonight! Always fun. And I will have my camera - so I'm sure many pictures will be taken. It should be a lot of fun! I bought him Iron Man (which he got last week) and a pair of sweatpants...which I know he will wear a lot! I think he is going to wear them today. They are cute!

Other than that - life is the same, work, workout, dance, other stuff. My friend Kate will be in town this weekend - so that is exciting. I will get to see her and Becky (whom I NEVER see anymore - i'm a hermet I've determined.)

I will get some scrapbooking done this weekend as well.

01 October 2008


I'm going to Las Vegas on Friday. Just for the weekend. I am so excited! My parents will be there (dad for work, mom for fun). So I will be hanging out with them. AND it is going to be HOT! It will be a good change of weather (even though it is just a weekend).

I want to share a few more photos from the FM Ballet photo shoot and some projects I've been working on for MemoryWorks.
