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!

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/
