i will now ship worldwide on all ebay sales, even if it doesn't say so on the sale. (i've not yet gone back and retro fitted all of the items with my new shipping policy)

it can be purchased as is, or a personalized photo tile can be added for only $10 more

blah blah blah

i've already put in my 5 hours of work today.
i think i will be going longer

last night i took a damaged black wool sweater, cut it into manageable pieces, and using ivory soap and an unuseable sushi roller (dome dork had dyed it red, which bled, it is no pink), felted myself some black wool. it turned out cool.

i made a wristband with rivet snaps and a small butterfly applique on it.

i still have this platter on my plate to do today. i've decided to go with blue and scrap confetti and the mishmash of color. by the way, the picture on the cam right now is of that mishmash, and though you can't see it, the platter is sitting atop the paper so the cats don't have a confetti party.

someone sent me five squares of origami paper, so i'm off to find something to make of them. then i have that foil that i need to mount to paper and make stars out of, i'm making a pseudo origami disco ball for my room. because i can never have shiny stuff in my room.

new stuff for me

i decorated the tin i got for my paper making tools:


and i made personalized links from some old links the jewels had fallen off of. the foggy part is laquer that isn't yet dry.

i was watching an auction for one like the "freak" one, $5 . . . fuck that, these were free. there is also one that says "speak". one of my italian charm bracelets says "mad diy vox" in pink letters, i want to put these between those words.

oh, and i did some hand felting last night and made a wristband from a piece of it. it is up at the ebay store.

i'm so unhip

are cowboy boots in again?

because i have this fabulous worn looking slouchy boots someone else paid hundreds of dollars for because they looked used.

i'd love to wear them out once i can fit into my boot cut jeans.

and if they are in again, does this mean boot cut jeans are in again? even hip hugging ones. i'm tired of the huge pants and bell bottoms.

i have noticed a return to the hippy thrift boho look this season, but i've also noticed a lot of people who seem to sell the hip stuff kids like selling cowboy boots a lot lately.

lotion question

i have strange skin, oddly dry and flaky, and most of my hair folicles (all over my body) are facing the wrong way. ingrown hairs are a way of life.

but no lotion has ever helped. on my face i have a very oily t-zone that also peels with the least provokation, like scratching an itch.

i'm ready to stop the bargain products, i'm tired of bumpies all over my ass and tummy and strange facial greasy crap.
