June Give-A-Way Art

OK, I know it's been far too long! I should have had these mailed out already. So sorry to the winners of my June give-a-way!!
You're items are shipping out shortly. The soap shop took a little longer than I had imagined.

I had my 3 year old help me "decorate" the winner's boxes, and am proud to present the art here!

You may get any one of these:

Ginger The Smelly Person

Mana from the snowy mountains

Ganatacta on mountain

Oja the whale

Finished New Moon

I secretly hope that when/if Bella turns into a vampire, Jacob eats both her and Edward.

that's it...

New Moon pissing me off

I'm almost done reading New Moon, 100 pages to go. I'm at the part where she takes off to Italy to save Edward.
What the hell is wrong with Bella? She's really pissing me off.
Has she not seen Jacob? Good lord girl, FORGET Edward.
As much as it is supposed to be a Romeo and Juliet story, any real life girl would get over Edward in a heartbeat to be with Jacob.
She's so selfish, she's constantly thinking about herself and I suppose Edward. Jacob saves her life and she doesn't even thank him. He's head over heels inlove with her and he doesn't even get a kiss for saving her life?
I want to slap her! Slap her in her little naive face.
I can't be the only one who feels this way!
Go Jacob, come over here and I'll give a kiss, poor guy!

Copy Cats

I've heard the best form of flattery is when someone copies you (or something like that). But I must say I'm not totally flattered. I'm a little cranky about it. My whole point was to make interesting, unique items, that no one else had. Now my things are being copied, especially the Ouija Board Necklace and my Antique Pill Bottle Necklaces. To me it feels like my products have been cheapened. Not only do the copier's items not look as good (but are offered at cheaper prices), they also take away of some of the LITTLE business I do get. But that's the business, and when you have cool items that's what seems to happen so I'll just have to take it with a grain of salt...

A Finished Palm Reading

Here's a look at what one of my finished palm readings may look like. Each one is unique, I change up the paper, flowers and ribbon used to suit the person and reading.

Color of the month

Blue, blue, blue. Baby blue, robbin's egg blue, aque blue, dusty blue, bright blue, light blue... Spring time blue.
This month is all about the blue! Clear blue, green-blue, turquoise blue.
Anyway, blue, blue, blue!

Color of the month

I go through little color obsessions! For December it was deep red. I think I skipped January, and all this month I've been goo-goo for eggplant purple. I already have a new obsession for March, but I'll leave that a secret for a bit longer.

So for eggplant I've found this wonderful retro 40's inspired dress from Stop Staring ( I had to buy it and will post pictures of me wearing it later this month, to my myspace page.

Corset training

One day I would love to train my waist with a corset! I've been thinking about it for a few years but always chicken out!
For now I'll just admire corset art.
I love this print "in training" by etsy artist "nudeandshoes".

Baby Girl Boutique

I've just found the most amazing place to shop!
I'm so excited because I like practically everything on the site, and that rarely ever happens to me.
Shopping for clothes is usually about as fun as going to the dentist.
Part of that is because I have a very classic curvy body that most modern clothes are not made for.
But guess what? All these clothes (in the right size of course) will fit my chest, waist and hips! Yay! (hips are the hardest thing for me to find the right fit for).

So check it out all you curvy ladys and we'll curve it up together, thank Lord!
