urban cabin

this setting doesn't look very downtown to me: more like the north shore, but this 'urban cabin' is very appealing!

spring cleaning

 i started cleaning and organizing my studio back in january, and i finally finished: there is a place for everything and everything is in it's place.
i even organized myself by putting each of my projects on a slip of yellow paper, listing the steps i need to perform in order to complete each one, and hanging them in a prominent place where i would see them daily.
now, just gotta do it!
(ignore that huge pile of to-be-filed)
three little pigs guard my vintage jewelry...polly pocket sits quietly amongst the (also vintage) hip-hop cd's. i love the drawing above the mirror of me and the mister given to me by five year old neighbor, grace:
i look like a princess, a very tall and thin princess!
my work bench is completely organized
(i ♥ magnets!)...
unfinished work on the right foreground has been separated by color...plastic up-cycled (!) sushi trays hold glow-in the-dark chandelier wind chimes hang at the rear of this area, with supplies stored in clear glass containers on the stainless steel shelf behind.
 it took a lot of work, but it has been worth the effort to be able to find anything/everything i need to be more efficient during studio sessions.

i ♥ u!

my latest custom order for a lovely local lady was for nine pairs of my enamel heart earrings...i know: that's eight above because i am still waiting the custom gray shade i ordered for her. i already shipped the finished pairs and i am happy to report another satisfied customer!

life is...

a day at the beach! 
very unlike-a-lion weather this past weekend, so a walk on the beach it was.
we headed to hughlett point which looks out to the chesapeake bay.
we werent the only ones visiting, though... these footprints are from a bald eagle, i think...
we stopped by the walmart on the way home: they had a fantastic selection of pez dispensers!
the day ended with a pink tinge.

today's problem: one-click check out

admittedly, i love barbie, and this was on my wish list, but a wrong move with my finger made it mine almost immediately while reviewing my stuff late at night on my phone...fits right into my studio, though.

today's manicure

it's really not a manicure: i just put some polish on my nails while waiting for a long document to finish printing last night...turned out nice: i'm calling it 'arugula mist' because i was wearing it when i picked some arugula from my garden today: fresh!
