What the hells that 'sposed to mean?

I finally finished that fox collar.

I finally finished the FOX COLLAR OF AWESOMENESS!

I love my puppy.

Katie approves of it.

Fabric Shopping *** What I'm working on today.

This has been my life for the last few weeks. I have a pretty vicious TO DO list to finish this month if I want to be on schedule for world domination in 2 years.

I was so tired, I was putting things in the hamper this morning to wash, and I threw my laundry in the toilet.
In other news, I am on phase 2 of my shoe project.
When I was in highschool, my art teacher said I had an unhealthy preoccupation with glitter. He became so irritated at my obsession with including glitter on my projects, that he often lectured me, stating that glitter would only hold me back as an artist, and could possibly be my downfall. Throughout my years of education, he was far from being the only one who didn't approve.

Well, now I'm producing my most treasured and popular design - a glitter covered shoe - and I have never been so excited over a project. The irony is almost palpable.
What colours would you like to see on a shoe?

Its been almost 4 years since we graduated college together. In school we were the inseparable duo of constant giggling, talking, passing notes, drawing ugly pictures of the teacher, and otherwise generally bad behavior.
One teacher spotted me in the hallway alone one day, and said, "What is this? I've never seen such a thing. Where is the other one?"

But you know what, we had the most talent, most vision of our classmates. So while other groups fought and bickered over who would press the piping or what colors to use, we worked calmly with coordination and cooperation, allocating tasks to whomever had the most skill. We knew what we were doing.
At first, the teachers raised an eyebrow at our concept sketches, always doubtful. By our second year, the teachers didn't bother with approval. They simply knew we could do it.
Our runway pieces were always the most impressive, our designs always opened shows.
Our ambition was what made us incompatible with the current market. We didn't design t-shirts, athletic wear, kicks or jeans. And perhaps that was our downfall.
I've been told, "If you have a good design, something new and innovative, nobody will like it. You'll have to cram it down their throats."

Afterwards we graduated, moved apart. We both had lives, bills to pay, mouths to feed - a creative hiatus of sorts.
But now, we are ready to team back up, and work on a collection for next year, together. He has an artistic disposition and dramatic flair, meaning I'll have to kick his ass. But I'm truly excited. I don't know how many long-distance fashion design teams there are in the world. But we'll manage with Skype and Priority Mail.

Welcome to the DECK design team, Ernest. :D

[I am wearing: Abercrombie white rosette lace top, Abercrombie light wash jeans, Abercrombie & Fitch green beachy flippy floppies. Accessories include: white woven sunhat, DECK bracelet, and nautical stripe tote.]
TAKE THAT, Abercrombie! PBBT!! Don't know what I'm talking about?

Yeah, super casual. I am walking to the used bookstore today. I'll share if I find any goodies.
Its face-melting hot outside in the daytime.
And in celebration of summer, I am sporting my bright green sandals. I love green, as it is the colour of growing things, and it makes me happy.

Isn't laziness just a derogatory term for efficiency?

I'm so tired, but I can sleep when I'm dead, right?
I need to officially reopen my Etsy shop. I have heaps of new items to list.
I also have a massive pile of clothes to mend, drawings to do, and unfinished paintings to work on.

I have a beauty / makeup post planned. People like to joke that I don't age, but I think instead, that I just happen to be good at putting on makeup.
Besides, I heard somewhere that happy girls are the prettiest girls. It makes sense to me - people are way less afraid of me when I am smiling.

Speaking of things that make me smile. Here are a few of my favourite things:

Oh, one of my friends asked, so I thought I'd share:
My days usually include a quick workout and stretch from
I highly recommend this particular workout:
It will kick your ass.

Its a cool new diet called Broke Like a Joke. Seriously.

Remember those ombré glitter shoes I designed?
[Mermaid ombré glitter flats - Want some? Send me a message.]

Remember those ombré glitter shoes I designed in 2008?
Sometime this summer, I think I'll be offering a simplified version in my store - basic flats, customized in any size and in any colour combination.
I personally would love a glittering champagne to mahogany brown shoe, with a subtle golden copper transition. I think they would be elegant and match all the cream coloured clothes I own.
I also would love any pastel to bright ombré shoe.
I secretly dream of owning a full set of the basic rainbow colours. To match anything.

I have also noticed that drool is my often used tag.
Perhaps I should cut back on the drooling. Maybe that's why Abercrombie didn't call me back?
