Normally, I would be sad....

Pipers very long hair has always been a pride and joy to me. I never had the patience to grow it out when I was a kid, but wished I did. I had long hair not to long ago and am probably growing my own hair out again.

Last year, Piper's school was doing a haircut drive for Locks of Love. Well, her hair wasn't quite long enough then to cut it and still have something left. It has gotten very long since then and I decided it was time for a trim. Piper had really wanted to cut her hair that first time, but we kinda scared her out of it. I asked her if she wanted to cut it all off so she could donate it now. She thought it over for a while and decided she would like to cut if off so she could donate it. So, here's how long it earlier tonight...



Then....

And now:


There is a part of me that's really sad....BUT, it's all washed away with the thought of helping children who just want to feel pretty and normal. I'm sure they are going to love getting Piper's thick, beautiful blonde hair. And then she can grow it out and we can do it again!

New Yeah, New Post

Happy new year....2 weeks late. Hard to believe another year went by...and so quickly!

I'm staying really busy with lots of projects - some new, some ongoing:

ALL SHOOK UP: Costume Design/Supervisor

FAIRYTALE COUTURE: Ongoing marketing, parties, new costumes, skills, etc.

DRAMA CLOSET: Theatrical costume rentals by the Huntsmans! This is my newest passion and something we are working VERY hard at!'

Not to mention kids, homework, housework....so what I'm saying is that I'M BUSY!

Ok, that is all.

Well.....


So, I haven't blogged since July. I guess I'm just a facebook person!

I'll catch you up....August - ONCE ON THIS ISLAND. Steve directed, I built costumes with Valinda... you can check out photos here: http://www.signatureproductions.net/OOTIPhotosPage.htm

September...recovered from ONCE ON THIS ISLAND and worked on Princess dresses...had a photoshoot
for the launch of Fairytale Couture.... you can visit us at http://www.fairytale-couture.com/


October
Can you say costume-a-thon? Of course not. And why would you. It's stupid. But, my life in October.

From L-R Top: Snoopy, Ariel, Snow White, Scooby Doo
Bottom - Little Bo Peep, Belle, Victorian Vampire and Rockstar

November
10 Santa Jackets aka stretch velvet hoodies with ostrich boa around the hoods and cuffs. Very not fun. Also rehearsed for my Top Secret Canadian Project, which was niether top nor secret but most definitely Canadian....well, for Canadian audiences....

Also did a benefit performance for a friend. Sang Dolly Parton. Dug the costume but not the wig.


December
Had my first party booking...and second! Also played Belle in a parade in Boulder City....Froze my buns off, but it was fun.

Then, ventured to the great white north to star, well, supporting star in HOLIDAY EXTRAVAGANZA with my friends Kellie and Tai and my new friend, Kevin. We had a blast! Survived snow and -43 degree weather. Went to the worlds largest mall....twice! But may I just say that I truly enjoy being flown out of town (or the country), staying in a private hotel room, having meals comped and being PAID to SING. It's really, really wonderful and I'm grateful for the opportunity. And Steve is just the best - never complains for a moment and takes great care of the kids.

Here I am, with Kellie, Kevin and Tai, in my really "lovely" beaded gown.

The photo in my current blog header is my other costume in the show.

Looking forward to a nice, quiet Christmas before the chaos of next year starts...which will actually begin on December 26th. I'll try to check in a little more often....or just follow me on Facebook under Sandra Stimmel Huntsman.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

We've got TALENT!

This past weekend was the North Stake's Annual Pioneer Days. It's quite an event - attracting thousands of people. I go for the corn. And the talent show.

The babies...waiting for fireworks.

The hubs, Lee & Sheree, also waiting for the fireworks.


Lulu!

Lola with her favorite cousin, Abbie!


Chloe, waiting for the Talent show.

Piper - the BIRTHDAY GIRL! In her lovely, Sleeping Beauty Esque dress.

What a cute trio, ready to perform!


And - here we are. Unfortunately, the sound system was pretty poor and Steve didn't realize the camera could zoom until I was performing. I wish it were the other way around!! The girls did such a great job - it was Piper's first time on stage.
