Somebody ordered some cookies for a CSB event called Kitsch Art: A Fashion Forum. These are quite obviously Elsie-inspired.

They're shimmery, too! Blessings on the person who invented edible shimmer. It's magical.

These were just for Mom. I didn't get any left over. Oh well.

Thank you to Nina for recommending me! You get a cookie and a hug.

Oh, and my sister wrote a very rad post about all those cute fonts and tapes she uses on her blog, check it out!

you should be here

Some days I wake up with words in my head. These were in there all day, and I didn't know what to do with them, except mope.
But when I picked up a magazine and saw this pretty page full of yellow flowers, I had an idea. It was a breeze. Less than an hour, and one pretty piece. I'm glad.

I still miss you though. And you and you and you and you.

it's real hard to think of titles, you guys

I bought this. I couldn't resist. It was Jesse. Also, it's very rare to find NYLON anywhere on this island.

Obviously I was too excited. Everything in it is swell, though. I might like NYLON guys better than the girls' one. And the clothes... the clothes. It's scary how obsessed I am with stitching and the way fabric falls. And shoes.

 In other news, look what I did. I wish I took progress shots, but I didn't get to. Luckily, I found a tutorial here.

Also I have perfected my winged eyeliner technique.

The neighbors ordered some. Ina and I made the tags. Yum.

valentine's day

I painted my first couple portrait commission. This is Nikki and Leo in Madrid. Nikki gave it to Leo as a Valentine gift. Heeh.

My mom bought a dress at the thrift store, and she didn't like the pockets, so she cut them off. I asked for them, because they were pretty. I think I was sort of wishing they would magically grow so I could make them into a hat. 

And then, at midnight, I thought of these:

I sewed buttons to the bottoms, so I could button them tight around my wrist and they wouldn't slip around. 
Here's the shape of the pockets, in case you were wondering. I just sewed the edges together and left the tops and bottoms open.
I really want to learn how to knit.

Via came over when she was in Manila, and we spent the afternoon making rings:

And then we went out and took photos.

We snuck into empty attics, and they could both climb on the ledge except me.

Oh well.

Via made this awesome ring, and Ina stole my bacon and eggs one.

It's so nice to be with people who understand your obsessions.

I came across this not ten minutes ago and thought it was neat. I always, always, wanted to play the cello. 

Stjepan Hauser and Luka Sulic do a version of Smooth Criminal

I have no words.
