Fashion Miss-tatement



Behind my bright grin, I am an awkward woman. Only occasionally do I muster up the courage to put on an outfit that makes me look and feel even a little bit pretty. And it's getting harder as I enter my late forties. Things are sagging and skin is shifting in ways I never knew possible!

And this month, the January of every year, is the WORST month to have the television on, because it's a constant plug for the beauty myth. I have been plagued with a distorted body image for more than two-thirds of my life. Januaries are the worst for me every year. Not because I indulge over the holidays. I really don't. But because of those darned commercials sending me constant messages which reinforce this putrid dust that penetrated my tiny little unprotected self esteem when it was wee.

When I do feel ever so slightly pretty and elegant, I just have to have a little silent celebration...

And this little wrap helped me feel just that. Damn the fact that I was missing the mark on corporate fashion, resulting in my own version of fashion faux-pas-crisy.

Cheers to all of us still uncomfortable in our own skins. May we forever shake away the judgement! (and go ahead - stamp for your foot when you say that!)

For You My Friend

Dang is it ever hot, right?
Well, I spend some time crafting indoors close to the air conditioner vents.
And this little box is what I came up with.  Along with the gift inside!

Decorated and the final touch...that wonderful Pinque Peacock Stick Pin.

It matched PERFECTLY.
Anyway, hope you like it.
My friend did (and she didn't assault the box when I gave it to her!)
Have a super Saturday.
Drink lots of water....cuz if you spend anytime outdoors, it just evaporates right out of you!

Spooky Eyeballs

Hello, everyone.  Over the weekend, I made this 12 x 12 inch printable page.  I will add another version later this week, that will have smaller and more numerous eyeballs!

To save at the original version size, click on the image and then click again to zoom in.  Then you can save and print it!

Halloween Scrapbooking Sheets

I created these this morning....just in time for making a few treats before the spooks come calling tomorrow night!
Enjoy.
