TGIF…

I haven’t blogged a lot lately.  I have been crafting and running around and enjoying my new husband.  Yesterday was our two week wedding anniversary and we celebrated it by going to one of our favorite restaurants, Luna Park.  The food is always great there and they make the most wonderful cocktails.  I had a strawberry mojito!

There is a lot to do to get organized for Renegade Handmade LA craft fair this summer and I have big ideas for this one!  First I have to vend at Patchwork Craft Fair in Culver City and am sewing away for that one.  Here is a sneak peek at one of my new bluebirds.(pre-stuffed)  I keep hearing a lot of beautiful bird sounds outside on my patio.  Our apartment is lined with gorgeous and tall bamboo and many birds congregate there.  Reg the cat loves bird watching too!  Here is a photo of him on our wedding day.  It’s difficult to take a good photo of  a black cat, but I love this one!

In other news, I think we are going to see Moonrise Kingdom tonight and I am so excited!  Wes Anderson is my absolute favorite director, and maybe Francois Truffaut, so I am greatly anticipating it.  I am fortunate to live in L.A. because it’s not playing in all cities, but it’s here!

I was going to write all about the wedding, but I have decided to keep the details a bit more personal.  There were some humorous events throughout the day and a few good stories.  To sum it up, we had two friends(husband and wife) accompany us and a photographer friend.  Thank goodness the friend happens to be a make-up  artist because I woke up with a few blemishes on my forehead in a triangle formation.  We took a limo to Van Nuys and found ourselves in a strip mall with a wedding chapel.  The mall was complete with a donut shop, a medical marijuana dispensary and a chinese food restaurant.  After we were married, we took a limo to Greystone Manor and after 5 minutes we were escorted out by a park ranger.  Apparently you have to have a license to take wedding photos in Beverly Hills and it’s $300.oo/ hr.  We managed to squeeze in a few photos before leaving and also got a few on the rooftop of our building.  Later that evening, we celebrated with a wonderful dinner at BOA restaurant in our neighbourhood in West Hollywood.  It was a great day.  I will leave you with a few photos.

My name is Jenny Smith and I am a Teddy Bear Artist. I have a need to be creative many hours per day. I am currently living in West Hollywood and my Canadian blood is enjoying the sunny warmth of Southern California. When I am not sewing and creating, you can find me, running, working out, writing, drawing, reading, gardening and attending the occasional flea market.
