Dina the Countess of Candy!!

This is the scarf that I sent to Dina to model. It is long (wrapped around the mannequin three times!) and has two giant bon bons on the ends! It has been taking me a great deal longer that I would have liked to get this relaunch off of the ground, but things will start trickling into my shop soon enough. :)
Dina is super gorgeous, and I know that what ever she does with this will be stunning! This picture was taken by Nandi and is titled "Cherry Blossom Princess".

Japan Day

My bud Melissa just told me about this!! I think that I will be rescheduling the Sunday meet-up yet again in favouro f this event!

If you're going to crash, just BYOB!

My best friend and I have a joint birthday party every year. We figured, since we are only a week apart, it just worked better that way.This year, we decided on n Alice in Wonderland theme, much to my delight! I will be dressing as Alice, of course, ans Karen will be the queen of hearts. Believe me, our choices are very well suited!

I really didn't prepare for this years party the way that I should have, but I decided to make a little post, just in case I have missed anyone with invitations or anything. Here is a little rundown of what we have planned:




Wonderland themed drinks!

water balloons


blind/drunken painting the roses red

wild music (we're all mad here!)

slip and slide!

Karen also has a huge variety of 70's style games, and there will be loads of photos taken!

That morning I will be in Philly at the Art Star Craft Bazaar from about 11-1 browsing and meeting fellow craft folk, and the day after I will be on Antique Row with the Philly Lolitas, and dining at the creperie afterwards! Anyone is welcomed to join in any of these festivities, I am a strong believer in the "the more the merrier!"

Karen and I like to celebrate our birthday for the the entire week between mine and hers, so there will loads of fun to post about when it is all over!!

I have it bad!

The other day was so extra gloomy! The wind blew the clouds were dark, and the rain pitter pattered on and off all day. I don't really mind those kinds of days, so I wasn't down, oh no, I was up. Up to take photos! I didn't really plan it well, but I decided that since it was perfect vampire weather (and since I am finishing the third book in the twilight series) I would bring out my inner Alice. I had a good number of pieces in my wardrobe that reminded me of her, so I chose a few and started snapping!

This may seem strange to some, but I am and have always been a dress up type of person. Every day (when I don't have to wear a lame massage polo!) I dress up as whatever character I feel like. Not so much cosplaying, but just wearing the colours of my mood, or of another time. I tend to be greatly inspired by the things that I do and the emotions that I feel every day. If I am reading a book, I really enter that world and become one of the characters. Not that I copy the style of the character completely, but I imagine what I would wear if I were a part of that story, and create an outfit that reflects that.

Alice Cullen is one of my favourite characters in a while because she reminds me a lot of myself. I don't drink blood of course( although I am a vegetarian ha ha!) but I can see the positive of things, and am very easily excited. I love fashion, and I looove parties! I also drive a little too fast for any ones health! I have always kept my natural hair short and spiky, and .....well.......lets' just say.. I have very accurate dreams and very good intuition. I can find any ones' lost anything, and I am very good at guessing. Of course some of these things fail, especially across the Internet, but I am known for my ....um....gifts. I know it all sounds pretty crazy, but hey, it runs in the family. I know some of you out there know what I mean, and probably have similar senses! if you do, I would love to hear about your experiences! This is a topic that I am very interested in, and don't really have anyone to share with!! I'm done babbling now.....it's cookie time!
