Palette of the Week: Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar ~ Makeup Looks

Here, FINALLY, is the second part in the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette of the Week series.  It only took me about 9 months to get around to it....sheesh!  If you've been wondering where in the world I've been all this time, click here for a quick update and lots of pictures :-)

Where Have I Been? Pictures and Updates from the Past Year

The past year has been a bit of a doozy!  It wasn't all bad...but it wasn't all good either....a bit like a box of chocolates (hate the cream centers but love the toffees and caramels ;-)

The main theme of the craziness of the year seemed to revolve around the PIANO!

Accompanying the Sun Lakes Chorale for 3 concerts in December...
  ....and 3 concerts in the spring....
With 20 plus songs to learn for each concert series, you can imagine there was a LOT of practicing going on in my house!
******************************************** Teaching piano to 14 students, including 5 adults!
Flowers from my students after their recital....guess they have forgiven me for all that forced practice time ;-)
******************************************** Recording my first CD....

******************************************** This year was also filled with loss...12 deaths in our congregation....and one of my very dear friends, Annie.
 So thankful for the hope of the Gospel and knowing I will see thes…
