Quick Updates

I feel as though I should do a quite *update* post to assure you all that I have not vanished from the face of the earth...

This weekend we celebrated my grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary. It was a very special time for all of us- especially seeing them renew their vows. I love them so much!

I also got to spend quite a bit of time with my out of state cousins- including the baby. I've never seen a baby go after books the way that one does! (I didn't even know that a 10-month-old could recognize what a book was!)

Meanwhile I'm smack in the middle of my summer project- costuming a local production of "Beauty and the Beast." It is going to be fabulous! If you've never seen this performed on stage, I strongly urge you to keep your eyes open for a nearby production! The added songs and dialogue are wonderful- and really add depth to the show and characters (especially the Beast). At some point here, after I get back from vacation (no idea if I'll have internet there or not!) I hope to do at least one blog post about the deeper themes of this story.

Finally, if you haven't heard already, Narniaweb has announced the casting of EUSTACE CLARENCE SCRUBB for Walden/Disney's next installment in the Narnia series, "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader." The young actor, Will Poutler (sp?) was last seen in the film "Son of Rambow" which I am looking forwards to watching eventually. It looks very intriguing!

"...and he almost deserved it." :D

He looks like quite a good Eustace to me.

I'll miss you Elena! Crongrats on your grandparents. That is so sweet. Fifty years..

Can't wait to hear about 'Beauty and the Beast'.

Thank you Grace! I'll be back before you know it- hopefully with lots of new thoughts to write up...(I just need to discipline myself down to writing the deeper stuff. It's too easy to avoid it, even when I have ideas about what I should say.)

Will you share pictures of the costumes at some point? I adore Beauty and the Beast, and I've always loved the costumes.

Oh yes, I do hope to get some pictures up here at some point! We're going to be working on Belle's costumes this week, so maybe I can do a bit of costume blogging, like I did with my PC costumes!
