On my desk right now...

This little graveyard...

new graveyard

Made from sculpey and hand painted in acrylic. I finish them with a super matte varnish, that almost gives them a dusty look when dry. They are so cute and a bit wonky. I try to not to be too rigid when I sculpt them, keeps them fun (Yeah, I think they are fun!) but still real enough to be spooky. I want a halloween dollhouse!

The gravestones still need their little bases painted and signed, so they aren't quite ready to hit the shop yet. I will probably wait and photograph list these on Monday, because I can.

I totally borrowed these pics from a friend...

A few friends ventured to the land of suburbia to see The Agonist.
I didn't bring my camera, all these pics are by Vivien H.

My parents gave me an older bread machine.

My parents live a healthier life than I do, I guess. They stopped using this old machine. Yay for me! I am loving it.

Breakfast: bread!
Lunch: bread!
Dinner: bread!!!

I have only had it for a week or so and already I already have said the phrase "My pants are so tight, wait...these are my loose pants!" ARGH. That might have something to do with me cutting fat slabs of it and then slathering them with butter and peanut butter for ever meal.

My breads have been quirky. Dude called them artisan bread. I guess I can blame the machine. Its not like *I* had anything to do with it. The machine is an artisan.

I also was handed down this book from my grandfather, which has more hazardous recipes for me to try. I am going to make a bread from each continent.

I laughed at a particular chapter in the book...

What? You need someone to tell you how to slice bread?? You shouldn't handling a knife then, because you obviously have the brain of some sort of chimp.

Then I tried to cut my bread...Pathetic.

I sucked it up and went and read the chapter. I must have chimp brain. My slices were 2 inches thick at one end, and paper thin at the other and the whole loaf look like wolves tore at it.

But it tasted SO GOOD.

tokidoki overload!

I know I just did a post that consisted entirely of "Look at this stuff I got", and that posts liket hat can come off as obnoxious, but LOOK AT THE STUFF I GOT!

I died of cuteness.





They smell of blueberries. *melts*

And this little thingamabobber.





Its the softest thing ever. I am having a hard time even touching this kabuki to makeup, I want to save it and pet it. :-)

These items were ordered from Sephora online, after my fruitless visit to the downtown Sephora left me heartbroken, as they didn't carry the tokidoki line (yet?) I wanted more things as well, but a few days into the release, some things were already sold out! 

Gawd, its cute! The packaging destroys me. I would buy it if it had a lump of coal in that box.
