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.

My computer is still broken (and probably will be, like, forever), so I'm photographing and listing items from my phone. No fun.

My new rings, they are very sparkly.
Available in a dozen colours, two filigree patterns, and five metals.

I used to avoid adjustable rings with overlapping backs, because they would pinch - until I learned a little trick that keeps them from pinching my fingers.
I sell adjustable rings in my Etsy store, so I figured it'd be nice to share this.

❀ Yep, that's all there is to it. Just separate the two extensions so they don't touch. The ring will not pinch you. This is how I wear these.

❀ I'd also like to note that my adjustable filigree rings are specially shaped in the back. Without the sharp points that I've seen on other filigree rings, mine are smooth and comfortable and never pinch. Made with love.

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

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?

OMG macaron shaped soaps
If you are obsessed with macarons like I am, check out these handmade macaron shaped soaps on Etsy. They also have adorable cupcake soaps!

Oh, and FYI some International Delight's Limited Edition Cinnabon coffee creamer will make even the cheapest crappiest cup of instant coffee (commoner's coffee, if you've seen Ouran Highschool Host Club) into a divine treat.

I grew up in Coronado, California, and the ocean is something I truly miss. I love perfumes, flowers, pastels and muted colours. I love to watch anime, play games, read books, eat sweets, and drink ice cream floats.
Despite liking really girly things, I don't consider myself an exceptionally girly person.
I get a huge boner for Baroque music.
