I'm Back!

Hello everyone!

Thank you readers for checking back with me!  I'm sorry I have been so bad with posting.  It's been a long long time!  So much has happened since then!  My life has changed, some changes for the good, and others hopefully for the best in the long run.  Either way, I feel optimistic.  :-)  Like I always say, life can take funny turns, but everything happens for a reason, to teach us something, to provide us with some experiences to learn from. 

In terms of professional changes, I have reached a turning point.  As my birthday quickly approaches, this gemini can no longer ignore her need for creativity in life.  I have been dreadfully neglecting my artistic side lately and have made some major decisions.  I have decided to strongly pursue a career in illustration or design.  (Hooray!)  I have focused so long on my academic side that my artistic side is screaming to be freed!  So if anyone is interested in commissioning work or collaborating, or knows someone who knows someone looking to hire an illustrator or designer, send them my way!  I will also be posting some new original hand-painted notecards and prints in my shop, so check it out soon!

As for other creative ventures, I have a fun surprise!  Some of you may know this already, but for those of you who don't, I am in the middle of forming a new business!  My business partner, Camille, and I are excited to be providing makeup artist services for events, parties, weddings, etc.!  I will also be selling Motives makeup if anyone is interested in purchasing!  I recently acquired a bottle of custom-blend foundation and it is a miracle in a bottle!  It goes on smooth and light, covers well (I even use it as a concealer!), and stays put ALL DAY.  What other makeup can do that?!  And best of all, for those of you who are on a budget like me, it is completely AFFORDABLE!  It is comparable to top designer brand foundations, only better because it is affordable and made for me!  And I'm not just talking color.  Not only is the color a perfect match, but I was able to add in primer, sunscreen, and a mattifier for my oily skin!  You can customize the formula to fit your skin's unique makeup!  So if you are interested in ordering some Motives makeup and seeing for yourself the magic of this makeup, let me know! 

As for personal changes, well much has happened.  It's really a romantic story...  I'll save it for a future post since it deserves its own spotlight on my blog!  :-)

By the way, Nikki's Scrapbook will be moving to Word Press soon!  Don't worry, I'll let you know when the switch happens!

Spring is in the air, time for changes everywhere! 

Ciao for now!

Nikki
