Sweet Magnolia. That's what they call her at her job. She's a flight attendant. She has to smile and talk a LOT on the job so when she's free she tends to become laconic in every way.

And her hair hmmm.... love the blue-black but its kind of overly precise in the way it lays so still even when she bends over to tie…

I created this sweet Madonna using a free tutorial done by Olga Furman. This was…

Meet Myra. Myra and I go to the same hair salon here in town. I was on my way to the grocery store and made a screeching left turn into the parking lot because I remembered that I wanted to ask for magazines before they were sent to be recycled.

Oh boy I can't imagine what Tilli is going to say when she finds her dress is missing from her closet. AND that her potential blind date is seeing it on Astrid😳😬🙈🙉🙊

"What on earth are you so worried about?" I asked. "I'm worried about that paint you are mixing for my face." Why? It's going to be fine. You will look beautiful with some color." I replied. "My eye! You poked me in the eye! Ow! Oh my god! What have you done?! My eyes are completely cockeyed and my skin has gray warts and some crazy rash. I'm ruined for life!" she whined. "Oh don't be so dramatic. It's only paint. I promise I'lI fix you and you'll look all sweet and lovely again." I…
