 I made this little guy for my brother-in-law's 20th birthday.

Funny enough I like him with angry eyes. It makes me giggle.

Beer Mitten Brilliance!

Over the weekend we celebrated Ellensburg's annual Brewfest, the chance to walk around in the frigid cold traipsing over icy walkways while mildly inebriated. It's good fun!

My family always hosts a small gathering of friends and this year a buddy of my dad's gave him a beer mitten. No joke! Check this baby out!

Part mitten!
Part beer cozy!
True brilliance!

Now I have to learn how to make these. Beer holder mitten? Who DOESN'T need that?!

Look! Something Shiny!

Yesterday I was invited to an earring making party. I had no idea what that actually meant, but my friend likes to make earrings and I wanted to see her before I head back to LA so I thought it would be fun.

More like fantastic! She had an expansive (or perhaps obsessive) selection of beads to choose from and then we were able to design how we wanted the earring to look and she put it all together for us! Turns out this is a new thing she's doing to help make her crafty hobby into a little side business. Effing brilliant and way more interactive for anyone with a flair for the creative. (I mean sure, you can be creative with Mary Kay cosmetics and make yourself look like a clown, but you start to get weird looks when everyone else is all "I want to look like a movie star!" Pfft, yeah, like that's going to happen.)

Anyway I loved the pair of earrings I go to help make. See?

Combination of natural stones and a couple added silver touches. Awesomely long to make up for my short, short hair.

If you're into beaded earrings check out her etsy page and if you live in Washington state see if she'll get you going with an earring party!

I'm also kind of a dork so we had a mini photo shoot of me mimicking her collection of masks.

Welcome 2013!

Hello everyone!

I know, I know. I disappeared for a while again. Part of my lack of posting is how busy I've become! In the last week alone I've been swamped with calling a million different people and preparing for my move back down to California.

On the plus side I got a new laptop for my birthday/Christmas! So now I have the proper tools to be successful. Speaking of which I'm slowing moving everything into my proper name so if you would like to find me on twitter go here:

or on facebook go here:

As I slowly transfer I might work on getting this page updated to my own name as well. If you've emailed me in the last couple of weeks please be patient! I got a little swarmed over the holidays and with moving my brain spends a lot of time in a gelatinous state.

I did, however, manage to make a couple Christmas gifts this year. Fashioned off a slipper found on pinterest (another place you can find me if you don't mind a ton of pins from Doctor Who).

My feet were a little small to show them off properly, but they fit my friend quite well.

I'm working to get back into the swing of things, but it may take a little time, so hang in there!
