Hand-crafted & painted pendant

•••
This is a necklace I just finished last night, but I'm really unhappy with the necklace I strung it on. It was a necklace sold as a stacking set, but the two strands were too close in size, especially after beading. So I'm going to go back and re-bead them and make sure that they look like they're stacking properly.That being said, I love the pattern/colors [...]

Meow Claws-trophobic & Heavy Petting FOTD

I did another Meow Fall Colors look yesterday. I wanted to use Heavy Petting, so I decided to try it with Claws-trophobic. I like it a lot, thoughI think next time I need to pair it with Witty Kitty or Sexy or Swanky. Heavy Petting is a great purple color.

Shopping Adventure at International Mall

•••
This evening my husband and I went to International Mall so I could check out the latest MAC releases. I was pretty disappointed with Suite Array. As Muse and many other ladies have surmised, the texture of the eye shadow duos is pretty chalky and hard to blend. While I loved the Pearlglide eye liner, since it's not waterline safe, I opted not to get it. Tho[...]

More Beading

•••
I did some more beading last night. I finished putting clear acrylic paint on my black heart (lol), and decided to go ahead and make a necklace for it.My Black HeartI really need to learn how to do more complicated things with beading. Right now everything I do is pretty simplistic. I've worked with memory wire before, and I really like playing with polymer [...]
