Baby Driver… in theaters June 28th
I was blessed with Baby Driver screening passes in the beginning of June. For once I am not going to discuss the movie… I am fascinated by the soundtrack. I have never experienced a movie the made me want to see it again just to listen to the music in it. There were at least 30 songs in this movie and all of them epic. This movie had me musically captivated from the opening scene when Baby played Bellbottoms by Jon Spencer Blues Explosion on his iPod. I was orgasmically intrigued when the Incredible Bongo Band Bongo Rock album was part of product placement. This movie was setting up a name-that-tune/found-the-record nostalgic overload in my brain. As I sat in the dark theater attempting to write down every song I heard clearly know it was an impossible task yet that never deterred me. Baby Driver is a brilliant movie, action packed, and full of redemption yet the music.. My goodness the music!!!
Memorable Music: Deborah by T Rex, Easy by The Commodores, Neat Neat Neat by The Damned, Brighton Rock by Queen, etc.
Did you prefer the movie, the soundtrack, or both? Let us know in the comments.
While in-between projects, I have been blessed with movie screening passes, meeting amazing artist, and attending incredible events around the city of Philadelphia. I want to let you in my journey…so here is my take on the Suicide Squad.

There was a huge turnout for the Suicide Squad Screening on Monday, August 1, 2016. This DC Comic & Warner Brothers movie was worth the crazy line, fans dressed as their favorite comic book character and waiting to the end to see the glimpse of the Justice League movie. The general theme was what would you do for the person you love. Each squad member was a tenderhearted villain… Harley Quinn loves the Joker (aka Puddin), Deadshot loves his daughter and even Captain Boomerang has his Pink Unicorn (his fetish).
It was definitely more of an action movie than a love story yet in the end love was the reason for most of their decisions. So if you are in the mood for an action movie with a compassionate side… go see it starting August 5th! 😊

In late August 2015, I was commissioned to create a doll and I didn’t know where to start. I had never thought to make a doll because that was my grandmother’s thing. When I was a child I experienced my grandma’s faith walk. Without a pattern, YouTube, a Crochet Circle, or a concept she relied on God to show her how to craft the doll Millie (that’s me) requested. She created “Lovie” and a passion for dolls was sparked.
I would call on her for guidance yet grandma went home February 23, 2014. That’s when I came to the realization that if grandma did it for me then I can figure this out with her. It would be God, Mother Moss, and I creating this doll.
On September 24, 2015, I posted an incomplete picture of “Lovely” our Brown Girl Doll prototype on Facebook. I was ecstatic with the results and had to share. I was equally astonished as my friends began sharing Lovely’s picture.
Work in Progress: Lovely
I pondered for a while then asked God to allow me to craft 15 dolls by the end of year and for them to receive loving homes. He blessed me to craft 13 more dolls which all received loving homes.
My desire is to share my grandmother’s legacy not by grieving my loss yet by sharing her passion. Crochet is our shared passion and we desire to create unique customizable Brown Girl Dolls that reflect the recipient. All our dolls are created with love and their names chosen to reflect the Spiritual Fruit.
We look forward to showcasing Brown Girl Dolls and our vast creative outlets in 2016!

Good Afternoon Lovely Ladies & Gents,
You have to wear yourself well. Embrace, love, esteem, and correct yourself daily. You have to evaluate the character you exemplify. Are you a person of value, valor, good morals, etc.?
First, assess who you are to you.
Second, assess how those closest to you view you.
An honest review of oneself is character reinforcement. To be a better person you have to allow yourself to grow daily.
Just My Thoughts,
Developing Creativity & Artistry
