christmas .09

...was all that i could want it to be...sleepy, cozy, and well fed!

gave myself an early christmas gift and had a christmas eve tattoo appt, went home and caught up on some well deserved zzz's! literally we slept the day away =p woke up christmas morning and prepared all of the side dishes, mac and cheese, southern greens, whipped sweet potatoes, all before papa woke up and prepared the rib roast! the meal turned out fantastic and it wasn't nearly as sad as i thought it was going to be that we decided not to do presents this year, and instead take a trip for new years eve....

now the countdown is on and i CAN NOT wait to be in seattle. i've always wanted to go, and even though i don't do good with the cold, i'm beyond excited! i got a nice warm bomber-like jacket and thermals from the army surplus store, a couple of pairs of jeans, and sweats. now all i need is warm socks, and an all-weather boot/shoe =] i should have packed last night but i'll try to make it happen today.

before i go, i updated the shop this morning with a couple of brand spanking new bits...
 new items here, buy 2 or more and get free shipping until the 31st!
















...and also below i included a couple of quick snapshots of christmas din-din, enjoy!

vicoria's secrets fashion show '09

must admit i was a little underwhelmed...a few of the outfits were cute, to me the wings and accessories were better than the actual lingerie =/
and the million dollar bra was a million dollar blah. take a look for yourself.


 Love the woodland fairy vibe!

things i'm loving right now...

Decided I'll do this every week!

Here's a trend i've been rocking for A WHILE being an 80's/punk rocker lover at heart!

Eye-Popping Fall Trend: Indigo Shadow



“You can do a classic smoky eye and add a little indigo at the center of the lid. Or you can opt for just a flash of color by doing a wet blue dot on the inner corner of the eye. You can also blend indigo eye shadow with a brown one and do a small tick at the outer edges with blue eye liner.”

—Emily Hebert

head over heels for...

Lara Stone as the barefoot bride at Chanel



though i must admit i'm on the fence with the overwhelming adoration for beyond funky shoes this season =\ ?????

Alexander McQueen

L.A. Brewery Artwalk



www.breweryartwalk.com

"twice annual open studio weekend at the worlds largest art complex. With over 100 participating resident artists, you will have the opportunity to see new works, discover new favorites, speak with the artists and purchase artwork directly from the artists at studio prices."

i kinda want to live here...went for the artwalk this past sunday, and it was GREAT!
though i must admit the amount of ground to cover was overwhelming to say the least.
all sorts of mediums/styles, paintings, sculptures, jewelry, scarves, buttons, high end glass sculpture sinks, you want it? you got it!

it was very inspiring to be in a community of nothing but idealist creators...happens 2x a year, and i'll be sure to go to the next one in spring! saving shackels now, check!

Okay, Here Goes!

Well, here goes everything!
Creating this blog in hopes of helping my crafting business, dozens of peeps can't be wrong.
I'm uber drained from all the creative juices flowing throw the brain. It's so funny cause they've been dormant for so long and now that the dam has given way, they're flowing like crazy. 
YAY!
...but i must take this moment to apologize to my Halloween costume as I was bitten by the crafting bug about 87% of the way through finishing it and now there's prob only about 5% left. 
I will finish you before Monday! lol
