Solving the Mystery of Wow Frequency

Spotted! At my new coffee stop.
Spotted! At my new coffee stop.

Betty Bot of Bot Bakery spotted her besty hanging on the wall while on the town one day in June.

The Lady quickly informed that she may have found a familiar faced portrait in a public space…

Upon hearing her Friend’s report Curious Carly concluded that she had just enough time in between gigs to investigate.

Off she rode! Headed west on Nomade.

As she neared the vicinity its scenery became increasingly familiar. Yes, North & Western is where it intersects. Yet!!

“This is a spot that I have come to frequent.”

Ah ha! Now this puzzle is beginning to make sense.

Upon entering Cup & Spoon, Carly found the folks to be quite friendly. Offering her water once she explained that it was too late in the day for coffee. Sharing in her excitement to be prominently displayed in a hip new space.

Come look closer at Tom Robinson’s portrait of her at 2415 W. North Ave., in Chicago. Celebrate the opening & the Wow Frequency  this Friday June 20th from 6-10pm .

Claiming Power Clocking Hours

Greetings, Carly here once again with a story for you to attend.

Mars is preparing its forward motion as we speak. Finally, my fingers are ready to leap!

Mars is a militant planet which controls action! Since its retreat in February our attentions have been turned inward. Gears grinding. I keep self reminding– that we’re in this for the long haul. It’s okay to stall. Especially, for carefully planned preparation. Which is the blessing this retrograde has bestowed upon us all.

I’m here to share a bit about my new career as a Figure Model. More importantly to touch upon the Life Lessons which have lead me down this path:

  • Self Acceptance

  • Self Assertion

People LOVE me. All kinds of people, who I meet all over. Not just the ones

Thanks, Bodo
Thanks, Bodo

who get to see me naked. And, up until very recently I have been hating them.  

Unable to see the good in myself, it was an endlessly frustrating experience to have others show their appreciation. Then, has repulsion would have it– the more I hated it the more it would happen.

Until the fateful day (Scorpio New Moon, 2013) when I stripped down for a group of artists over 50. With Fear out of the way I was empowered with the freedom to consider options outside of self loathing.

Given time to sit & think slowly I began to unravel.

Along came Lesson #2. Guess what? I, Carly the Model, is in Control. 

Or, at least that’s what they would have you believe. In order to have control you must take it. And, while sex drives do no belong in a nude studio undoubtedly the human condition takes precedence over Man Made Rules.

Allowing people to cross my boundaries in humiliating. Only worsened by that fact that I am naked on top of that. Which really aids in lighting a fire for me to speak up. Yay! 

For now, these lessons are being hammered in. Time & time again.

Please, follow along as this girl learns through Figure Modeling what it means to walk a Life Path Number 11.

Here is a slideshow from The Vintage Bazaar on August 12, 2012.

Playing dress up is certainly one of my favorite past times, this show demonstrates that point clearly. Betty & I celebrated this event by wearing our last day at the beach wear. Typical of a last beach day it was cloudy & cool. But we didn’t care! TVB, August truly was a great time.

Now we’re ready for Fall & will be back once more, this time at the Renegade Craft Fair!!

See you soon!!

My goal for this show: to SELL OUT!!
More on this later, for now it is suffice to say that the selling of garments has been a fun learning experience & it is not a career path that I wish to pursue any further.

For now though, I’ve got some great stuff that’s in need of new home!

Come n’ get it!
