Snowbirds & Boyfriends

ugh...totally no disrespect to anybody who is in any way related, associated, or one themselves...a SNOWBIRD. I live in the desert as most of you know....and Arizona is known for it's gorgeous weather, so during the colder months our population GROWS because those people who live in colder climates will come here to live for a few big deal right? no... really BIG DEAL...the very worst part, and I suppose you can't appreciate it unless you drive...but the worst part is the TRAFFIC, ugh...weekends...normally "un-busy" days on the roads...but nooooooooooo, not here in's like rush hour! It takes twice as long to get errands done. I love to drive, but absolutely hate traffic! O.o BUT it is approaching April and therefore warmer temperatures, therefore leaving snowbirds! *rejoices* sorry y'all, I couldn't hold it in! xD


My Teenager's first boyfriend....'s her first one, she's 14 and I'm totally freaking out...xD I am giving her her space and trying to not seem so over protective, but it's not going so well. She goes to high school next year and that's a whole new Talk Show O.O...I can deal, I can hang....I just barely like it, lol He's cute though and plays sports and gets good grades, so how can I complain!? The day she wants to go on her first date, I might pass out y'all...I'm just sayin'...

My Girlsense Contest - Wrapping Up

So a few weeks ago...or maybe it was closer to a month, I decided to hold a 50,000 gcent contest in an effort to encourage people to join Girls United. It worked! From the time I announced the contest, there were 11 new sign ups. Now that may not seem like a lot, but it is! cutepony8 on Girlsense created Girls United (originally a GirlSense forum, and now soooo much more!) 9 months ago and today we have 289 registered users, 17,277 messages in 699 subjects! Whoa! xD It's a great place to be and a perfect place to make new friends! Join us today! =]

Back to the contest...

To recap: I created 20 "questions" that challenged the gals to find, scavenge and answer all sorts of forum and girlsense related items. The first 10 to answers those 20 questions correctly moved on to the Design portion of the contest. Design an outfit (outfit, purse and shoes) in the color scheme of black and ANY OTHER color. And YOWSER!! The talent and creativity that emerged, blew my mind. These gals put a lot of effort into their designs and they should all commend themselves for pushing the limits and taking chances. The entries were phenomenal! Click on any of the pictures to see a closer look! ☺

I judged based on the following criteria:


Now...drum roll please.....The Designs (in no particular order):

xthemallx (Mall) - This throw back to 1960's Mod, was fabulous! The checker patterned long blouse and go-go boots are just divine!

OMGSML1 (Shannon) - Definitely a style I dig!! The arm and leg tattoo was mad creative! =]

handbaghailey (Katy) - Beautiful Spring inspired ensemble! Sweet and beautiful, this black, red and gold piece was just wonderful and the butterfly was the perfect touch!

Prinzess27 (Prinzess) - Rocker chicks unite! Going above and beyond. The "add-ons" are just incredible! I can hear the music already! xD

swimmer550 (Swim) - A beautiful outfit...could be either day or night! The cut on the bottom is lovely, gives it a 'webbed" kinda feel! Lovely one sided glove gives a hint of sophisticated rebellion!

afmoose95 (Moose) - If there is a such thing as lovely gothic, this is it! The color is just divine and the embellishments are yummy! The tights are a brilliant touch as it would not have been the same without!

KEdwards23 (Aqua) - Glittery gorgeous-ness. The "sheer" sleeves are just beautiful! With the lovely fireworks design and matching purse, this outfit is sure to be the toast of the town! ;)

Englishrose92 (Ange) - Lovely socialite look. A brilliant mix of color of black, white and gold with the platinum blonde hair giving a color kick! Lovely!

xxMarla (Marla) - A unique entry...leaving behind the "dress-up" and going for casual...I love it!! I LOVE the football purse and the jersey is amazing!

So there you have it. Nine incredible designs that obviously these gals put a lot of effort into. I am speechless. Unfortunately, CrazyGirlNumbuh2 did not get her design in on time and was disqualified. It's ok Chloe girl, I hope everything is ok with you :D. So who wins? As I mentioned earlier, I scored based on those three categories. The highest possible score is 100 Points. So here we go....

FIRST PLACE and 50,000 gcents goes to...

With a score of 92, the winner is afmoose95 (50,000 gcents)

2nd Place with score of 90 is prinzess27 (20,000 gcents)

3rd Place with a score of 86 is OMGSML1 (5,000 gcents or a custom, your choice)

xthemallx - 85
swimmer550 - 85
KEwards23 - 84
xxMarla - 84
englishrose92 - 83
handbaghailey - 81

Whew! So there you have it! I want to thank EVERYONE who participated and made this fun! Gals please please do not be discouraged that you didn't win. It WAS very difficult, but I judged honestly based on the score system I mentioned earlier and I didn't think about who made what, I assure you, I gave every single entry thought and consideration. You all are brilliant designers and I am in awe of your creations! If you would like a breakdown of your scoring, then please PM me =] I hope everyone had a blast! Please visit these lovely ladies' boutiques by clicking on their names above!♥

A HUGE thank you and hugs to BB (cutepony8) for allowing me the pleasure of taking up forum space (which can now be cleaned xD) for this contest! THANK YOU! (((hugs))) Check out her new Spring btq y'all, it's fab!

Now I can concentrate on GUPS! xD

This & That

ugh it's approaching midnight and once again here I am...having to get up in a matter of hours, feeling like I drank a pot of coffee ( I don't even drink coffee by the way) least Leno is on!

We ate at China Star awhile ago and my fortune cookie popped out one of the truest statements I've ever heard in my life. Of course my husband didn't quite agree....poor dude, you can't fight the cosmic rightness of a fortune cookie fortune! xD It read:

"Don't accept that others know better than you."

Whoop!! I have been telling my kids that for YEARS! And now I have confirmation! *smugness* LOL Btw look to see if you have a China Star Buffet near is THE best! If you don't....well bummer to be you =(...just sayin'

I stumbled across this awesome site from a user on Polyvore with the same name. If you were familiar with Dollwar, it is similar, but much more friendly and the staff is just phenomonal!! Dress up your "vixen" and hit the runways! Get your friends to join and battle them in fashion! Earn dinero (money) and diamonds to expand your wardrobe, buy a house and even a car! Great site, check it out!

What's "IN" for Spring of '09?

We revisit the 1970's and 1980's this season. That's right flashback... Spring promises a jump back with romper jumpsuits and hotpants. Bold bri
ght colors of red, orange, yellow and greens! Metallics and sequins abound! Sheer fabrics for your softer needs. Bows, polka-dots, and scarf belts...and yes folks, maybe a shoulder pad or two! Embellish with huge sunglasses and chunky're sure to look like you just walked off a New York runway!

wow an hour gone just from! An hour closer to catching some ZZZ's..xD lol Y'all are awesome for reading!

Fact: A person will eat an average of 8 spider legs in their lifetime.

uuuhhhh...what the....???


Girlsense Wants To Interview Me???

So I get an email awhile back from Girlsense asking me if I would be interested in being interviewed...hmmm, lemme think...uhhhh, yeah! LOL...Here is the original email (upper left). I am completely flattered and honored that GS would think of me. After I received the original email, I eventually got the "question" email (lower right), and I responded! =]

These are my responses:


  1. What do you think about the 'look' of the site? I think the overall look of the site is very good. The look is fun and fresh. I think that it might be a tiny bit "young" but your main demographic is probably younger, so it fits. I originally saw my daughter and niece on the FDS "cutting" clothes and I said, "What is that?" and the rest is history, I was hooked! =] The layout enables users to see everything in the area they are "playing" in, all in one place. The toolbar at the top allows you to navigate to just about any activity on the site, with the exception of the FDS. Overall, the look of the site is inviting and fun, the colors are bold and bright. From just the homepage, it definitely makes you, as a new user, want to "come in" and see what more the site offers. I think the adverts sometimes will throw girls off and some of them take forever to load thus slowing down the entire page, BUT you offer this site for free and it's a very small price to pay to wait a few extra seconds for the ads. Overall on a scale of 1-10, the look and "feel" of the site is a 9 for me!

  1. What do you do when you come to GirlSense? I probably don't take advantage of EVERYTHING the site offers, but my first LOVE with GS is the DESIGNING. The new FDS is just phenomenal! I love to read my notes and comments and then return the favor. I renovate about once a month. I adore the Babble feature and I use it often. You guys have recently made some much needed improvements to this feature, so thank you! I steer clear of the Market Place. When it was first launched it was incredible! But now people abuse what it is intended for so much, that I just stay away. Finally, I of course love to SHOP! The essence of GS, in my opinion, is the designing and then buying and selling....when I first started it was about buying low and selling high, just like a real business, but in my almost two years on the site, it has become so much more than that. Everyday I am amazed and speechless at the creations I find! And although I am a 32-year old mom of two, I have met some of the most amazing girls on this site and wouldn't trade it for anything.

  1. Have you sent any of the things you've made on GirlSense to your friends? If no, why not? I'm going to assume that you mean through the "share" feature. I haven't using that feature. What I like to do after creating a fashion, especially in the new FDS, is take a screen shot and save it in my files. It is then a clear, large picture of the fashion. After you save something, the details don't show up quite as well, and my fashions are usually incredibly detailed and I like people to be able to see that, so taking a screen shot and then sending/posting it that way is just better. So yes I have definitely shared things I have made on GS to friends and such, just not through the share feature!

  1. Have you ever invited any of your friends to join GirlSense or to visit your boutique? If no, why not? YES!! lol I have desperately tried to get my sister and two of my girlfriends to join, but alas they have not! BUT I have "recruited" several people from POLYVORE.COM to stop in and try it out...even if someone is not interested in the entire aspect of the site, there is so much to do to show your creative side, that people are bound to find something that interests them!

  1. As an older member, are there any other activities/features/options you'd like to see on GirlSense? Well to be honest you guys have really really done an excellent job with the activities that are included on the site. I might suggest a better ID Card or Profile page. I realize this is tricky because you don't want to allow the opportunity to share sensitive information, but maybe it could be implemented in a way that would allow you to share hobbies/interests, things about yourself and maybe a picture but not birthday, location or email. I don't know if that is possible, but would definitely be welcomed by the GS community. I also think it would be cool if you could "buy" a space on the home page to display just one fashion. So say I pay 500 gcents to get the fashion of my choice, cycled through on the homepage for like an hour or so with others who have paid the same price. Finally, being able to BLOCK a member from commenting on your page or buying your fashions. I know this is an "ugly" feature. But as I'm sure you are aware, there are girls who like to "harrass" other members for seemingly no reason at all. I myself get harrassed all the time by people who are mad that I won't price stuff, or mad that I have a lot of views. It doesn't bother me in the least, I just delete and ignore, but I am an adult! Some of the younger girls on the site, don't take it quite as well, so being able to BLOCK certain users, may give them peace of mind and convince them that it will be ok if they stay! I have seen some fabulous, responsible GS designers quit because they are being harrassed....sad!

  1. Please add any other ideas or suggestions you might have for the site: Oh a minute? hahaha, these are just features/options that I know I would welcome and many have been discussed on the forum and you may have already been presented some of them!

-Allow fashions to be priced together. In other words, say I make a dress, shoes, purse and jewelry, that all go together as one ensemble. Allowing us to "group" it and price it together as a package price would prevent that beautiful outfit from being broken apart and sold seperately.

-Allow fashions to be priced for a specific username. A lot of girls are in different time zones and even different continents, it's hard to be on to the exact minute of each other....SO, it would be nice to have a feature like this. Girls could do customs and then just price it immediately with the comfort of knowing that only the person it is intended for, can purchase it!

-The ability to SAVE a fashion as a draft and come back to it later. Sometimes it will literally take me hours to complete just one piece (I'm picky so maybe not the best example) and I would LOVE to be able to save it and come back later. I can guarantee you that you would see some amazing creations if people were potentially given days to complete something. I'm sure Michealangelo needed a break or two while painting the Sistine Chapel, no? ;) I realize with over 14 million members that it could get quite "crowded" with people saving hundreds of drafts all the time...the "space" needed would be tremendous I'm sure...BUT allow users only 5 drafts at a time, or even just 1 or 2!! Even that would be a very welcomed addition!

-FDS CLONE TOOL - Please please please!! lol An invaluable tool I assure you. The new color system with stamps is a WONDERFUL start, now you can match colors. I would like to see the color matching available for ALL decos though, not just stamps. But being able to just click "CLONE" and then have the deco, whether it be stamp, button or bow, on your cursor ready to color matching, no size matching, not rotation matching....omg it would make things so much easier! lol, do I sound desperate?? ;)

-UNDO in the FDS - just being able to undo the very last thing you did to a fashion. Sometimes I accidently delete a cut that I have done and then have to make the tedious cuts again, bleh! lol

-A list of word stamps. In the FDS it would be nice to have some pre-approved word stamps. Like: the, and, love, dream, I, design, style, you, etc. Just like the Logo stamps.

-Revamp the MarketPlace. I think being able to put something for auction for like a week, or something and then leave it to be bid on, more of a format like eBay or something similar would be better. It doesn't mean you have to eliminate the current "live" auctions, just give the user the ability to choose which format they would like to use. I LOVE auctions, I just don't like the MarketPlace.

-CHAIN decos - gold chain, silver chain, steel any kind of "link" that will allow us to make chains. Currently we have no "metal" links of any kind.

Whew! Ok that's all I can think of. I would like to point out that GirlSense, in my opinion, is a up-to-date and fun site for girls of ALL ages. And the fact that you offer it all FREE is just amazing! Nothing is perfect, so there is always room for improvement, as mentioned above, but overall, the big picture....GirlSense is a safe environment to create, have fun and make friends! KUDOS! I appreciate and am honored to be asked to participate in this questionnaire, so THANK YOU!

They never mentioned to me not to say anything about the interview, so I am assuming it is ok, to share! If not, I apologize GS, but you peeps gotta warn a gal if that was the case! I hope they listen to some of my suggestions as they have been talked about for awhile on Girls United! :D

My Newest Polyvore Set

bleh, I haven't made a set in ages and just recently got my groove back on...I'm can feel myself changing layouts...I like the "separated" look a little better...but I'm undecided...anywho, like you care it be.."Make Way for the Abnormal..."
