How to hand-cut a cameo silhouette!

How to make a silhouette portrait of your dog, cat, child, self, or loved one.

There are many ways to make a silhouette of yourself or a loved one, all being different, some basic, and not exact.  Many are merely black and are shadows cast on walls, with black construction paper behind them. This idea is the subject sits sill the light casts a shadow, you try to sketch it (without your hand getting in the way), next you try to cut it from your markings although, you may hold a scissors wrong, or not follow exact lines.  Or perhaps your subject did not pose correctly, and smiled.

Teeth are cute but they often can make a nose longer, and a chin appear double!  I know we threw away the crude one a school teacher did when I was 8!  Plus, all the kids in her class looked the same!

No, all children do not look the same, nor are all fingerprints the same or snowflakes.

Another way is to darken a profile photo on your computer.  It will still be a double reduction.  We are 3 D, a photo is 2 D, and now you will double minimize someone you should make "more than who they are not less.

Another way is just to copy a fairly nice straight-on profile shot.  Make sure the lips are relaxed and there is no smile.  See the top head the back of the head the bottom of the head, the neck and bust-line.  Tape black paper behind the photo and cut that out.  It still won't be exact since you are not skilled at drawing with scissors, and unless you order real silhouette paper from Blick or a school -supply the construction paper will fade in time and not cut as smoothly.

Normally this type of work is just black and often it is caricature style and again, minimized.  

The best way, is to not do it.  Leave it to a real portrait artist who can draw great profile portraits with a pen, pencil, pastel, paint brush.  If they are one in the over 2 million portrait artists who have learned by their own talent to hand-cut a profile of a person or pet, then you are better off going with them.  The best silhouette artists worked for Disney.  The key to look for is the inside cuts.  Novice artists can claim they are from generations of silhouette artists which has nothing to do with their skill.  You want to see they can go inside the silhouette and cut the necktie, bow-tie, earrings, lashes, tux, necklace and any detail that makes it you.  The Disneyland and Disneyworld silhouette artists, the only true master silhouette artists can do that, and they also can do groupings (not singles pasted on one sheet)-- heads cut into heads.  Don't be fooled if they tout a cheap price on the net.  The work could be great, but perhaps they are sketching and cutting losing details, or not able to do the prized groupings.  I suggest resume readings.  The customer recommendations are often written by their spouse and their friends, you can tell by the language, is that the language people would really use.  Language like "Cute Boo came in and giggled with glee to get a ___________ silhouette!  Sure, huh.  At best they say, "Cindi was professional, early, did accurate beautiful work, was kind and made my event a hit.  

Just study the internet, see who you like and check out the works in the stores.   Are they fat, is the bodice simplified to not look human, is the face in proportion, do all their children have the same face:

As for you, and your craft project, just do it.  Everyone will applaud you and clap.  For more information please see.  http://www.silhouettesbycindi.com






Flawless Skin Secrets
By Cindi Harwood Rose
Owner of Utopia MedSpa, Uptown Park

Your skin is the largest living organ of your body. It is not an inert covering such as a glove placed on your hand. It has many functions. It is the body’s protective covering against the environment and it is also the body’s principal mechanism for maintaining the temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit in which all our cells and body systems are adapted to function. Perspiration, liquid waste, is given off through the skin. Adults have an average of seven pounds of skin. If it were spread out flat, it would cover about nineteen square feet. Every inch is supplied with busy working cells and responsive nerves that keep your body and mind informed about your environment.
The skin is made of three layers of different cell types. The top layer is the epidermis, the thick middle layer is the dermis and the fatty bottom layer is the subcutis. Chinese medicine incorporates skin analysis to determine Yin or Yang deficiency, and lung disharmony.

Most people do not know how to take care of their skin. They have been brain- washed through modern marketers to buy expensive products that are laden with toxic mineral oils, preservatives, colorings, perfumes, and surface-drying alcohol. This actually clogs the outer skin, stopping it from breathing and releasing the wastes your body wants to discard. The alcohol dehydrates the skin. Its purpose is to prolong shelf life. The preservatives stop the natural products such as milk, egg, placenta, and fruit extracts from molding and rotting. Do you think your skin deserves a product that even bugs do not want?
Skin-care is an ancient 3,000-year-old science that has been around in all great civilizations. The American Indians rubbed their bodies with bear grease to keep their skin moist. They participated in sweats to rid the mind and body of toxic thoughts and blockages. The Greeks cleansed the skin by oiling it with plant oils, then scraping it off
with wet bark, exfoliating their skin. The Egyptians soaked fragrant woods and resins in water and plant oils and rubbed their body and faces with the liquid. The Swedish took elaborate hot mineral baths and cold plunges to detox their skin and invigorate it. The Romans made their cold cream out of the natural organic oils. Coconut and nut oils have been used in tropical climates for thousands of years. The Orientals dry scrubbed their skin with seaweed, exfoliating it, and then moistened the epidermis with sesame oil. They soak in mineral waters laden with natural sulfurs and rub sweet almond oil and mint on the body to aid circulation. They have books on herbs such as Chan Tui (cicada husks) which are helpful for skin conditions. The Middle Eastern countries used the Olive oil for the face and hair. The French used hazelnut oil as a moisturizer. They used lavender oil on skin irritations. Only in the 1900’s, were these natural oils placed by mineral oils which are based from petroleum sludge, and are not only drying to the skin, they are poisonous. Strangely, they are in many products that we may think are safe such as Johnson’s Baby Oil, Vaseline, and Kiehl’s products. Other products such as Tiger’s Balm, Noxzema, Laura Mercier, Franche, and Aveda, have pure combinations of healthy ingredients.
Taking care of your skin involves more than just outer skin care. It involves feeding your skin from within. It is important to keep the body hydrated with six to eight glasses of water a day. If you live in a polluted climate, buy spring water. Stay away from caffeine. Try to eat natural uncooked vegetables and fruits in your diet as well as fish, eggs, seeds and nuts. Eliminate processed sugars and starches. Reduce your salt intake. Go for the whole grains found in brown rice and healthy organic flours such as kamut, barley, flaxseed, spelt, soy, and Brewer’s Yeast. Exercise tones and tightens the skin. Endermologie (a machine that exercises the skin), massage, and water therapy, all aid to skin appeal. For glowing skin, sleep is important as well as vitamins. Vitamins and minerals known to help the skin include the following: Vitamin A, B Complex, C, E, Calcium/Magnesium, Selenium, Chromium, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Coenzyme Q 10, L- Glutamine, Omega-3, omega 6 oils, folic acid, Pycnogenol, and fish oil. Dermatologist, Dr. Margaret Waisman, feels that skin care truly does start from within.
Skin care is really simple. Your skin is an organ and it breathes. For this to happen, the epidermis needs to be clean and exfoliated. That way the wastes can be eliminated and your natural oils can shine through. Your skin should “glow”. After it is cleaned, if your skin is not too dry, the outer surface should be toned, and then moisturized if it is not too oily. If you add moisturizer on top of clogged pores, you will clog them more and either break out with pimples. . Heavy products stop your skin from breathing.
Exfoliation can be done in many ways. It can be done with products that contain glycolic acid or fruit peels. Microdermabrasion can be done at a spa. You can have a skin peel at a dermatologist or physician. Did you know that these treatments are really just a way to get rid of the dead skin? They are effective but are costly in time and money. To put natural vitamin C and a natural fruit acid into your skin, you can rub the inside of an orange peel on your face for two minutes, and take 500 mg. of vitamin C a day. Microdermabrason is just a grain scrub made of crystals (salt is a crystal), pieces of loofa or sand rubbed around your face and neck in circular motions. Scrub your own face and save over $1,000! You can buy a nice honey-almond granular scrub (be sure it is alcohol free) for around $20 or make your own. Use finely ground nuts, cornmeal, or oat bran, a little water and honey and make a thick paste. Scrub your face and neck with circular motions for around a minute and one half. Rinse off with warm water, then splash cold water on your face and neck. For a toner, take a half-tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, a half tablespoon of witch hazel, a tablespoon of aloe Vera juice, to six ounces of spring water. This will keep. Do not tone skin that is too dry.
Home facial treatments include steaming the skin to open the pores and to release blackheads. You can actually boil tea bags, and stand about six to eight inches above the steam for three minutes. Next, entry rub your skin with one or more of the following ingredients, oatmeal, ground nut meal, poppy seeds, cornmeal, with an equal part of honey. Rinse off with cool water. Then place egg white on your face (including the eyelids) and neck. Leave this on for several minutes. Rinse off with cool water. Finally, add cucumber slices to your eyelids and relax for five minutes. You will experience an

instant face-lift as well as glowing skin! To make this an oxygen facial, just add a tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide to your grain scrub.
Mashed avocado is used in South Africa to soften the skin. Papaya is used in Hawaii on sunburnt skin as well as insect bites. Oatmeal and water is placed on skin rashes in Mexico, Germany, and the United States. Tomato juice with a garlic infusion can be used on skin that is prone to breakout. Hemorrhoid cream has been used on puffy eyelids, blemishes, and cellulite, all for on the spot reducing! So can sliced raw potatoes. Any of the following oils are great to use as a moisturizer: sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, flaxseed oil, hazelnut oil, jojoba oil, sunflower seed oil, and vitamin E oil.
It is an exquisite thought to realize that nature can nourish your skin allowing you to put “your best face forward.”

Dating and being with the partner you want -- how to spot fake dates from the real deal!

How do you know if "they are really into you".  Dating advise from the woman who got the one she wanted and he chased me until I let him catch me!

It does not matter who you are interested in.  Everyone likes to feel emotionally connected with a partner.  With social media dating, or introductions to possible future "I DO" candidates, how do you spot the fake date from the real deal, or do you want to?

There is a point in many people's lives that they like the chase and the feeling of the "kiss before the kiss".  Relationships can be fickle.  In some cites like New York City and Los Angeles, people play longer before they commit to marriage, or a relationship with a major other human individual.  Yes, many who can't have relationships with humans do have them (we are not talking sexual, so please, don't get confused) with their pets.  Pets love you no matter what!  You feed them, and sometimes walk them, and you both know the scoop.

So here is my dating scoop on how to spot a connection-- after you meet them and if their B.S. (Texas word for Bull Shit) is real or actually skinking bad.


If they (we are talking men to women) say, the words honey, baby, sweetie, babe, forget them. They throw those words out too freely.  Unless you want to be freely not appreciated.

If the woman does not look you in the eyes (woman to man or woman to woman) and they look away from you while you talk, use their cell phone, have to bring another girlfriend always with you-- they are not into you.

If the person is nervous and is folding and squeezing their hands and playing with their hair, that means, they are just nervous!  If you like them, hold their hand for a moment. . . a moment!

When they want to talk only about their selves, the best you can do is listen and see if that self they are talking about is interesting, or is merely an ego needing a huge stroke.  Decide worth it or not worth it?

If you like anything about the other person (their eyes, the way they dressed, a book they read, their fragrance) don't hesitate to tell them.  They may feel you are not nice if you don't address the obvious, even if you like their roaring great laugh!

When they are into you, don't worry if you don't hear from them for a day, not even if you think they should text a minimum. Some people are very shy, busy or don't know how great you are.  If three days pass, they are not interested in you.  Move on!  If they call you two weeks later, don't ask questions, like "duh, where have you been", be perky, short on conversation and see if they want to meet you again.  Keep texts and conversations short, so they want to know you in person.  If they don't make a plan at that point (and just called to string you along somehow) cross them off your list and move on!

If you have any questions about dating, please leave me a response.  My advise works no matter what type of person we are dealing with.  Please be aware of the person who does not make any eye contact.  You can not trust someone who does not look you in the eyes!

That is my realationship advise, from your psychic silhouette artist and guru of life, love, and relationships, Cindi Cinderella Rose.  Here is me and my cute bald husband, http://www.silhouettesbycindi.com/Franklin, and life partner!
Father of our two children, and soul-mate from Colorado.

Being a super power-house woman and home-maker for Thanksgiving to baby showers!



You go girl!
It does not matter girlfriend, if you work on Wall Street or No street, you can always
use your creativity to make every moment special. Gifts of the heart are the most precious
of all.  That being said, I have posted two photos of creative DIY ideas.  The first is a great way
to decorate and make Thanksgiving beautiful and thankful.  In the top photo, silhouette artist Cindi Harwood Rose presents an organic turkey to her family with centerpieces made from craft shop flowers torn apart and glued on napkin rings.  Bowls of bountiful fruit are on the tables with cute
Thanksgiving themed pieces bought at Tuesday Morning nearly a year before the magazine shoot.
That is the best time to get themed items for decorations and to store them to make a smart table.
Side dishes included a tofurky made with ginger, soy, and sesame, fresh green beans with tomatoes and onions simmered in water and oil, pumpkin/carrot soup, sliced oranges with cinnamon and rose water, brown rice with truffle oil, a fresh salad, chopped kale salad with cranberries and pine nuts, tossed with olive oil and apple cider vinegar. . . and more and more!

Diaper cake for baby gift topped with Madam Alexander Doll.  This is not so difficult, it takes a pie pan and rubber bands, ribbons and cute gifts.  Go on line and read tutorials and make your own.  I actually went on a diaper cake rage and made about 6 for different friends little babies, and now, am over it.  However, it was a smashing hit each time.  The great part is giving them little t-shirts, socks, banks, baby books, and things the mom and dad really can use.  Blow this photo up and peek at what is there.  I also put nice scrapbooking decorations all around it and used the ribbons to cover up the rubber bands that held the diapers together.  I think home-made gifts (with good things in them) are always appreciated.  I can tell you, that creating also is a good way to not worry about silly things, and to go into your zin-happy guru safe place of love.  Love to you for your heartfelt gifts to the world.  Love, Silhouette Cindi!



Cucumber eye pack Green Tea and Lipton Tea Baggy eye removers!
Cucumbers are known to reduce baggy eyes, just like the potato is!
So, is the caffine tea bag (wet), green tea or Lipton's tea bags!
Regardless, all these methods require spritzing the eye area first.
Lying down with either the cucumber, potato slice, or wet tea bag on your eyes for 10 minutes.
You will see a difference, right away!
You will also see the red in your whites go away with the caffine in the tea bags!
It will give your eyes energy!
Marilyn Monroe was known to use cucumber eye masks for her lovely sparkling eyes!
Especially with her many hang-overs since we know she loved her bubbly!

Beauty Eye Treatment

Raw potato slices help your puffy eyes.  You need a potato and a knife!
Slice 6 very thin potato slices.
Spritz the eye area with purified water.
Lying down, place the slices on your lids and bags.
Leave this for at least 10 minutes for best results!
 Here is a photo after a potato treatment (now with make-up) of me, over 50 years old.
My glowing skin is from Bentonite clay masks, which I will tell you about later!
A good night's sleep always helps too.
Good night, from your Silhouette Guru, lover of the light.

Wedding Silhouette Artist "I Do!"




Weddings can be wonderful, white like snow, or pure like a sacred heart.
They can also be stressful.
Most people are on a budget.
One of the most reasonable and unique ideas is to have a REAL silhouette artist at your wedding.
Cindi Harwood Rose, is that rare find! She does the lost heirloom art of cutting portraits from
thin paper in miniature. At weddings she often does two to them, one for each guest and one
for the guest book. We had the pleasure in New York City to have Cindi at our wedding, after
we watched her do silhouettes in Austin, Texas! She is so detailed, and spot-on! Plus,
she made us all feel special at the same time, keeping a perky, nice personality.
Some how she did all 150 of our guests in the 4 hour time we hired her.
For fun, we made other cute silhouette logos-- on mugs, and swoozies. I was able
to hire her from her SilhouettesbyCindiFacebook. It is a great idea. Say, "I do",
say "yes", and say, "here comes the bride, groom, and all the happy guests!"

Authentic silhouette artists are an extinct breed! Cindi Harwood is revising the art!






Silhouete artist Cindi Rose happened upon the art of silhouette cutting freehand, while drawing portraits for a Disney art company. She saw a unique hand-profile cutting artist and did not think his skills were as expert as they could be. The teen took to his surgical scissors and tiny, thin, paper and gave it a try. The park manager was so impressed, teen-aged Cindi was offered the spot as the "official silhouette artist!" At that time, nearly 40 years ago, there were only 13 silhouette artists known in the world. Today, there are 38 to 58 of which Cindi Harwood Rose is recognized as the leading and best silhouette artist. Her name is featured in The Guild of Papercutters and Wikipedia, and she holds the world-record in speed. The history of silhouettes (last example which is not Cindi's work) comes from the Victorian era. Harwood Rose is popular at business conventions, holiday parties, children's stores, schools, and silhouette fund-raisers and especially at weddings. She works in New York City, Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, and Aspen. Cindi often works around the USA for Presidential homes and to give speeches on the history of silhouette art. Her work in speed and accuracy is unmatched. She also donates her time to children's hospitals to make the children feel happy, and to give the family a gift. For more information see http://www.silhouettesbycindi.com of the

Silhouette Artist Cindi Rose is an elegant touch to a New York wedding. She is the only hand-cut paper silhouette artist that was a New York City resident. Recently, she had the pleasure of working a 6 hour wedding in the mid-town area of New York where she did 40 silhouette hand-cut profiles per hour, the fastest record for a detailed hand-cut miniature profile. Guests were entertained and delghted. The bride, Carly Jacobson, searched America to find an artist who could do the double silhouettes that Cindi Rose mastered when she was a teen doing silhouettes at both Disneyland and Disneyworld. Currently she lives in Houston and New York, and likes to work the Houston, Austin, Dallas areas as well as LA, Denver, and Aspen, where she has family. Her work is detailed and her personality is upbeat. On GigMasters she has the most reviews of any East Coast silhouette artist, and many GigMasters rewards. She is the only portrait silhouette artist mentioned on Wikipedia and the featured premier silhoeutte artist on the international Guild of Papercutters. Do you want to hire a silhoeutte artist for your wedding, or even two silhouette artists for a large wedding? Contact CindiSilhouettes@gmail.com http://www.silhouettesbycindi.com/

The History of Silhouette Artists with talents of Physiognomy

The History of Silhouette Artists and Art, Silhouette Artist Gur

Cinderella (Aschenputtel) - Lotte Reiniger (1922) from http://www.silhouettesbycindi.com




The art
 The history of animation can be traced to the silhouettes of Lotte Reiniger. 
The shadow can show mood, and often expresses more than a figure with
details. Walt Disney was especially fond of the silhouettes by Reiniger. She
would sit for hours, weeks, days, years to make a cartoon, moving her paper
cuttings and taking a photo of them.  Much of the world thinks that Lotte
Reiniger invented movie cartoons.  http://www.silhouettesbycindi.com

Silhouette artworks in cinema and cartoons!

Lotte Reiniger's silhouette cut-outs are astounding and 

extraordinary.  The silhouette theme began in Turkish

shadow puppets, with a religious undertone, using the 

soul as the theme of a shadow.  Walt Disney was inspired

to make his first cartoons from silhouette artist Lotte Reiniger.

How to make your own wedding silhouettes for your theme!

Having a wedding? 
Hire a professional silhouette artist or make your own DIY Premier American silhouette artist, Cindi Rose, does lovely silhouettes of guests at weddings! Silhouettes are beautiful for your wedding invitations and can be done in any color!
You can look on the web, and find a silhouette artist to make your invitation. It is a fun touch if you hire one to entertain at the wedding event.  Look at the Guild of Papercutters to see the featured silhouette artist, or where one lives in your area.  Silhouette artists will travel if you book them.  They need not live near you.  Professional silhouette artist Cindi Harwood Rose will even travel to other countries!
 To make your own wedding silhouettes, take profile photos of one another, or have them made.  Find the color paper you like.  Cut the photo out, carefully.  Draw what you cut out as a stencil on the colored paper you selected.  Use nice barber scissors or embroidery scissors to cut out the shapes.  Mount them, and enjoy!
Authentic silhouette artists in the 20th century normally worked in amusement parks, or World Fairs. Often, even on the streets of Paris. They all can draw portraits, and like history, they learned that cutting a profile of a person, from head to toe, sideways in profile, often can get a quicker, and more satisfying result. Don't be fooled, when done correctly, this art is the hardest fine art to master. That is why we rarely see a real silhouette artist, who does not sketch the work first, use a projector, or light to trace a shadow. The artist can literally draw with scissors. Check out Wikipedia's great article on silhouette artists! Althoug check Peggy McClard antiques to get a wonderful history, there is one on SilhouettesbyCindi.com where art historian of silhouettes and Cindi Harwood Rose write an interesting history of silhouette art and history of silhouette artists together. Or, you can get a professional silhouette artist to do one for you, such as the ones I did below. They vary in price to do full-length silhouettes, and are not that expensive.  It is worth it to have the signed original.  You may have a great investment for the future, with the real silhouette artist's signature.  However, the DIY is something to be proud of too, and in that case, sign your own work, and invest in your marriage!

Ten ways to gain friends

1. Think of others, not yourself, ask how they are, and don't spend too much time talking about yourself.

2. Never upstage your friends, they may be jealous of you. Always be authentic, who wants fake friends anyway.

3. Write real thank-you notes for anything that another may have done.  If the note is  home-made it is better, you can buy cute scrapbook items and personalize the note!

4. Be there when people need you.  If the friend is sick, bring food and ask what they eat, or offer to run errands for them.  Pitch in on their special occasions. At the least, send an e-mail, you are thinking of them.

5. Never let them borrow anything.  That creates un-real boundaries, and they will fill that they need to use you.  Explain that it is a rule of yours not to borrow (except for the wedding by tradition or from a family member) as you may ruin it or they may not return it. If you visit them, bring a gift, help buy gas, groceries, or take the to dinner.  Try not to over-stay your welcome, unless you are the "baby-sitter".  In that case, are they using you?

6. Do "you validaton" think of their best qualities and compliment them for them.  Do this to yourself, too. 

7. Invite them out for lunch or coffee, or better yet, a meal at your home.

8. Don't tell their secrets to anyone, be careful about telling your secrets to them.

9. Stay upbeat but listen and emphasize with their journey.  Often a good friend needs a "bitch body buddy" someone to complain to.  If they do too much of that, you may want to rethink them, are they addicted to distress? What can fix them?  Offer prayer and spirituality.

10. If they hurt your feelings explain in an honest way that you like them, but not the way it appeared that they acted, that it made you feel awkward, and hurt your feelings.

 

A true friend is a jewel, and will sparkle when it is clean.

The silhouette artwork is wonderful on invitatons and logos.
The best works are done by silhouette artists which you can google, on see on Bing, Yahoo, AOL, or working at events. The computer and wall traced silhouettes are flat, and do not show personality.   You can contact the silhouette artists and have them do invitations, but don't use the simple ones that do them by computer as they will look trite and will be out-of-proportion.  It is best for a skilled former Disney silhouette artist to hand-cut your profile.  Many of the silhouette artists will ship  directly to you.  I work by events, and if hired to do a silhouette for a wedding, event, Bat Mitzvah, business convention store fashion event, Wedding silhouette artist Cindi Harwood Rose can to send you logo silhouettes of the bride and groom to use for your invitations.  Just go to silhouettesbycindi.com  If I am not available, I can tell you which woman will do a great job for you.  We even work in the UK and Dubai!

A is for  an agreement of what you and your significant partner expects, and it is for Appreciation.  You better appreciate your partner and their goals, and they better appreciate yours, if not, I would say A is for Adios!  You do not need to start an agreement with someone who does not support who you are! A is for action.  Make a list, you need to think about who will marry you (priest, rabbi, judge, friend), where you will have the ceremony, the reception. What is the theme?  How many people do you want? Where is the venue? Do you want a band or DJ?  Seated dinner, buffet? Outdoors or indoors? A is for annoying, which you can become-- don't.  Keep your bridezilla and groomzilla Attitude to be about gratitude.

B is for Brides and Besties.  Please remember the good people who really love you, and not make your wedding or marriage about social climbing.  B is not for Bad girl, or Bad Boy.  Don't be one of those.  Be Beautiful, inside and out.  B is for beauty, make sure that either you can make yourself beautiful on your wedding day, or you have hired professionals.  On my wedding day, I did my own hair, make-up, borrowed the dress, but told myself, that it was my wedding day and all Brides are beautiful, if they shine inside and out.  B is for Brides.  B is for borrow.  Borrow from your friends or family, what you don't have.  Even if it is your grandmother's watch, or that necklace of your mom's that is so dear to you. B is for bouquet.  Plan something special on your bridal bouquet. You can put a little personal jewel on it, or a silhouette pendant (see silhouettesbycindi on Pinterest) for bouquet ideas.  You can even make one from a collection of brooch's.  B can be the beach.  Beach weddings are always fun and easy, breezy.  B is for the book, the guest book.  Remember, you will always enjoy having these kind words and signatures from your guest book, don't forget to get one.

C is for Cindi Silhouettes at your wedding. It is for Caring about all your entertainers, and giving them vendor meals. C is about the cake!  Everyone really cares about a great tasting and gorgeous cake. C is about control. It is best a wedding planner or your Maid of honor help control the seating chart, the decorations, the invitations, the RSVPs.  It is for Champagne toasts.

C is for camera.  Your photographer is a must, you may want a photo booth, you may want a video. C is for cute. Everyone loves to see cute flower girls and ring bearers at your reception.  C is for courage. C is for charm.

Wedding Silhouette Artist, Silhouette Artist for your Wedding!

Cindi Rose is the best silhouette artist for all East Coast and New York City Weddings. Not only is she a former Disney silhouette artist (and that is always the best ones to hire) she is the fastest silhouette artist in history. At your wedding, she can do couples together where she cuts a profile into another profile. Her record when she is cutting and mounting her own detailed artworks is 30 people per hour, which is twice as fast as any other East Coast silhouettest for weddings or store events. In silhouette artwork, like surgery, the faster artists have the most graceful cuts. If you need more silhouettes done at your 4 hour wedding, she reccomends you hire Kathryn and Cindi Silhouette Sisters. Together they can do 60 profiles per hour, of full detail. Kathryn and Cindi often work many silhouette jobs together. Please check out their popular blog, Kathryn and Cindi Silhouettes. They are popular in New York City, Rhode Island, Maine, Washington DC, and everywhere. You can see the intricate works they do. Kathryn also designs the great cake toppers as shown in these pictures and pendants. Both Cindi and Kathryn learned how to interact with customers or guests by working at Disney theme parks, and take that gracious personality with them to all wedding and business gatherings.
