I got a tattoo!

This is my new tattoo that I got yesterday. It is on my right wrist. I'd been talking about getting this done for awhile but finally my friend and I went and set up the appointment for it. I have a long list of why I love strawberries and could happily carry a picture of one on my arm forever but I won't get into that today. :-P I didn't get a chance to take a picture until last night and it was kind of dark. I'll take a better picture and post it sometime.

Here is the site for the shop I went to. :)

Thanks for reading. Have a good day!

pretty princess necklace

I made a necklace this morning! I was babysitting my friend's daughter, Brody the other day and we were playing with beads and making jewelry. She gave me a bunch of the beads I used in this necklace and told me to use those colors and make myself a necklace. So I did! haha

I liked playing with the different shades of blue in the necklace. From royal blue to beads that are shaped and colored just like a robin's egg.

These pics aren't the greatest because the lighting wasn't the greatest. I'm gonna reshoot sometime in proper lighting but wanted to give you at least something to see :)

I'll post some new stuff soon. Hopefully Jess and I will get to some more photoshoots this week. Have a good day and thanks for reading!

I haven't posted much of the jewelry I've made in awhile so I wanted to post something from my collection thus far today. I made this cute necklace with an awesome animal print heart pendant. When I finished it though it still seemed like something was missing. Check the first picture...

I'm a fan of asymmetrical designs. Not always of course but many times I think it is actually complimentary and keeps the eye moving and interested in the design. With that in mind I made two small charms in coordinating colors to add to one side of the necklace.

Here is the finished product with the two charms added. Looks better right? All it needed was an extra touch of pizazz! haha.

That's all for now. Have a great day everybody and thanks for reading as always :)

So yesterday Matt and I worked on cleaning up our yard and gardening. We went out and bought some annuals and perennials to plant. When we went out we took my Volkswagon Beetle convertible. We put the top down and loaded the back with all our finds. It looked like I had planted a garden in the back of my car! Anyway, I thought it looked really cute all sitting in the backseat of my car so I took some pictures of my faux car garden for you to take a look at :)

I'm really excited for the lilies we bought to come into full bloom. I also love Coleus. They are the little yellow guys at the bottom of the center picture. We also got some in red. We planted some mint in the front of our house as well because we love mojitos! Tis' the season for them after all. While we were out there we found a strawberry patch growing too so we were both pretty pumped about that. Do you think a strawberry mint mojito would be good? I might try it sometime. :}

Thanks for reading and taking a look at my car garden. Check back soon!

Modeling and Photography Day!!!!

So yesterday my friend Jess and I did a couple of fun photoshoots at my place. I've been friends with Jess since the 4th grade and even since we were little we would team up on all kinds of creative projects. They were a lot weirder though back then I promise you. We tried to invent a cleaning solution for my mom among other weird and bizarre things. But anyway, haha, Jess does alt modeling and I love taking fun photography and would love to practice more. The first one we did was a cute white and blue themed shoot in my dining room.....
She is wearing a necklace that I made in this one. Finally have a picture to post of it and it looks awesome on her :)

this is a favorite

The second shoot we did was in my kitchen. The dress Jess is wearing is from when we went thrift store shopping a couple weeks ago. This was kind of a joking play on the whole trashy, desperate housewife image that I think most of us have seen portrayed at some point or another. Her tats make this picture awesome and of course the "Bitch Bubbly" ain't bad either.

we heart tequila

There were a lot more pics to choose from (she photographs so well its easy!) but that is a pretty good sample of what we went for with the shots. I've been real busy with a lot of visitors and just stuff going on and haven't posted in awhile. I wanted to get these up asap and give you all something fun to see. :) Thanks for reading!
