it's been awhile

Ok.... it's been awhile since I last did a blog entry. Well actually, it's been a really really looooooooong time. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things and do some regular updates here. So here it goes...

What's new with me you might be wondering?
Today I cut my own bangs. I call it "the economy sucks haircut"

On the 23rd I turned 28. I celebrated the following day with my family, Joe, and my best friend Dan. We went to my favorite restaurant~ Fishbones and had the most amazing SUSHI dinner EVER!! My mom made me this hideous card using my old yearbook photos and one nasty wedding photo where I was shitfaced~ lol!

I recently got into collecting dolls. Bradley dolls to be more specific. I've been lonely lately. I'm such a freakin' hermit. These dolls provide some excellent company! I keep them on my desktop where my computer is. They're really starting to take over!
My mom had one of these dolls when I was a little girl. Hers had a big blue fluffy dress. I remember running my fingers over her smooth tightly tied back hair and I remember the big huge eyes! My growing dolly collection resurfaced these old memories.

I've also been working on some things that are new to me. I am totally addicted to gluing down little miniatures into these cabinets that I paint and glitter up. They take me about two days to complete from start to finish. I love putting them together. It's like putting together pieces of a puzzle.

Still doing the resin thing.... and lots of it! I make fresh batches at lease a couple times a week.... keeping the Etsy shop full. ;o) Here are a few of my favorite pieces that I've recently made:

Oh... I also made a few resin soapdishes! I keep getting a lot of requests for these and I'm sorry I haven't stocked
my Etsy with any of them *yet*. I'm going to try to get my ass in gear and add a few soon.

Oh! Almost forgot!!! I have my photos in a CD insert for Madlib... the Beat Konducta album. It's available at Stone's Throw Records. My Detroit photos were discovered on Flickr. I'm pretty excited about this. It's the first time my images have been used for a CD.

Neglecting a blog is easy to do.
Those are the best soap dishes I've ever seen, and if I ever finally make some money I am buying one for sure. :D
And congratulations on getting photo's in a cd cover!
