I almost missed posting today... ahhh where does the time go? Anyway, here is one of the design projects that I am finalizing. This is an annual project for me and one that I really look forward too, since it combines my love of photography, design and ballet. The artistic director/owner of the studio just approved this design for their Nutcracker Performance and with a few tweaks it will be ready for press. The Nutcracker is one of my favorite holiday stories and traditions. My husband and I used to go to see the Boston Ballet's Nutcracker every year and now we watch our daughter perform in it... funny how things come full circle. If you have never read the story of the Nutcracker , you need to pick up a copy of it (the original story was by E.T.A. Hoffman) and then see the ballet, Tchaikovsky at his best (in my humble opinion).
A bit of trivia about the Nutcracker, originally published "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King". In Hoffman's tale the little girl's name was Marie while Clara was the name of one of her dolls.
Tomorrow I hope to have my IF entry posted. It was time for Posey to make an appearance and she enjoys sugary sweets as much as flowers which makes her the perfect subject for this weeks prompt! Thanks for dropping in today and for all your wonderful comments. Reading your posts makes my day and gives quite a creative boost at the same time. =)
