The perfect material...

Wow! What a weekend. It seems like it went by in a blur. I spent most of the day on Saturday at Hancock Fabrics looking for the perfect material. Didn't find it.

Why was I looking for the perfect fabric? Well, I needed to make the perfect outfit. You beautiful Crimson has an audition this coming Saturday, Valentine's Day. She will be auditioning for the chance to attend the Actors, Models, & Talent Competition in Orlando. You can click here if you want to know more about AMTC. Basically, if you want to "make" it in the entertainment industry, this is where you need to be. It's crazy that she has to audition to be able to go, just to audition in front of a bunch of talent scouts. She wants to be a "pop star," but an actress or model would work for her! Back in December she auditioned for a talent placement company called Advantage Models and Talent. They loved her and asked her to come on board. She has been in piano and choir for a couple years and she took voice lessons last summer. Since she hasn't had formal modeling or acting classes, she will start them at the end of February.

Okay, back to the worldwind of a weekend. After we gave up on the perfect fabric, I decided to set out for the perfect outfit. Found it!!! It was at Goody's. I hate that they're going out of business, but love it that her $40.00 dress was 50% off!!! I have to hem it and make a slight other alteration, but it will be super cute, when I'm done. You see...I found this perfect dress in the Jr. Miss Department and since my beautiful Crimson is a petite thing, the dress is too long! The neckline is a little too low cut as well.

Last night was spent practicing her runway walk, her monologue, and her song. She is just too cute. Once we get it down, I'll post a short video. Believe me, at only 9 years old...she is amazing! I was going to post some of her headshots, we had done back in the summer...unfortunately, my computer doesn't want to work with me today so they uploaded very small. I gave up and posted one of both of us.
I loved reading all your posts about Blissdom. I so wish I could have been there. It sounds like it was a lot of fun! If I'm a little sketchy on the the blog posts this week, please forgive me. Helping Crimson practice is my main concern. Well...have a wonderful rest of your Monday! I'm getting ready to go home from work. Too bad I have to go to Wal-mart before I get to go home, but at least I'll be one step closer to the house.

Hi Annette! I just tried to posted a comment, but lost is somehow. What a great picture of the two of you. She really is adorable. Why is it when you are looking for the perfect thing you can't seem to find it, but when you aren't looking for it you find it everywhere? I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures and the video. Have fun.
