Sweet Treats, Zero Calories

Yup, you read that right. NO CALORIES. An adorably delicious sweet treat with none of the guilt and all of the indulgence. Well... maybe there isn't exactly anything edible to include in this post. I know! I know! False advertising! I promise the trickery is worth it though. I have come to acquire the love of shoes at a young age and I don't foresee that love going away any time soon. New, funky, out-there, and a little outrageous are always good qualities to have in shoes. So what exactly do these two worlds have in common?

Wreaths, Wreaths Everywhere... And Not A Surface To Spare

    I have been working like a mad woman, and yet I seem to have time to make wreaths (or maybe I'm just forcing time in there). I'm sure my sister is absolutely fed up with every surface and everything being covered with glitter and tulle. (Sorry sis) Because my new obsession has taken over and I finally had to guts to list something on Etsy.

Step Right Up!

   College has ended, I have a new city to explore, and a new room to decorate (and the the whole house to assist in decorating). Can you say OH MY GOSH, so exciting!? Needless to say, I am happy to have this  experience at hand. Nothing makes a crafty chick, like myself, excited to have new and fresh ways to make my creativity happen. Now, don't let me get ahead of myself. There has already been some pretties put up in the downstairs to make this house feel like a home, but knowing me I have to plan, do a little research and come up with a boat load of ideas before I actually get to making anything remotely awesome. My room. What to do... what to do? In the past few months I have been working on a fun project that is circus related and KAPOW! Ideas explode out of my brain and splatter across the wall... well... less blood and grey matter much more paint and glitter. The soon to be theme of my room? A grown up circus with that twist of demented humor I seem to have an abundance of. More after the jump. ( Warning... this post is obese with pictures =] )

Pretty Things For Pretty Little Girls

    I must admit, I have fallen off the crafting train for the most part of 2013. My final semester of college (yay! officially an SDSU graduate!) really kicked my ass and made personal projects almost impossible to accomplish. Super bummer on that front, but on a lighter note - I'm back! After moving into a new place, one of my new roommates discovered my creative streak and it has been a smorgasbord of adorable head bands for her precious little girl on the way. So obviously, with a girl on the way, I had to bust out the tulle, rhinestones, ribbon and DEFINITELY the sequins. What little girl would be complete without some pizzazz? She may not even be born yet, but two days old or two years old - this kid is gunna be stylish. Enjoy the cuteness =]

Lookin' Good and Feelin' Gorgeous

After doing family photos for several years, the most common questions I get pertain to what exactly people should wear, how to do their hair or anything else you can think of in relation to appearance. It's hard to give broad instructions without governing someone's personal style. So here I have devised the most broad and encompassing list of things for preparing for your photos ensemble

Quiet Books - Not Always For Toddlers

    For those of you that know me, you know me to be a rather over the top and colorful person. And no, not just my hair is colorful. =P Many of you also know, I love to do things that are rather playful in my art. When tasked with a serious project or one never intended to have little eruptions of laughter around the room, rest assured - I'll make sure there is at least one smile in the room. Either a devious smirk or an innocent lil giggle, I will make it happen. In my fibers class we were assigned to embroider a self portrait. Now this didn't have to be an actual portrait of ourselves, it could be a representation or anything that was "us". Up went  an eye brow and a crooked little smile appeared. Commence Dragulation!

Running Late, Looking Fabulous, AND On A Dime

    These three things aren't exactly something you put together. You either get two of the three or just one of them. So how does all this come into play? Every one of us gorgeous beings with hair on top of our heads have woken up late and thought, "Oh crap... my hair is greasy. I'll just put it up." Problem. It still looks like you rolled around in fried food. I have the solution (and no... it doesn't involve expensive hair products. I will NEVER purchase these canned dry shampoos again!)
