Another outstanding CB show! We went to the late showing last night
and celebrated my new year during intermission! Thank you, Love, for
such a thoughtful bday gift!

After watching this show I've decided two things...a) I need to make a
flaming umbrella, and b) I want to hire Brady to perform at our
wedding. Nothing says love like a stiltwalking, fire breathing, crazy/
drunk clown.

DIY: Chandelier Crystal Harness


DIY: Chandelier Crystal Harness
Originally uploaded by Sanctuary-Studio

I found this harness on Etsy a few months back for $80 (including
shipping). I won't even deny it...it was love at first sight.
However, I couldn't justify the cost so this morning I pulled out my
trusty needle nosed plyers and my new dressform and got to work. The
crystal was purchased off etsy for $2.00 and I found the antiqued
chain at Michaels (on clearance) for $1.50. My own two hands just
saved me $76.50!

LIfe: Happy Birthday Luna-See!

Three years ago today I started this blog.  In celebration I think I'll eat a cupcake or a cinnamon roll....or maybe even both!  Hey, we're are celebrating here!

Check out my very first post here:  http://luna-see.blogspot.com/2008/01/next-time-im-in-vegas.html

Funny, I think I've been to Vegas once in these last 3 years.  It was such a short trip that I didn't even get a chance to see a show.  I wonder f Le Reve is even still around.

Regardless, Happy Birthday, Blog!  When I'm old and senile (I hope) you'll be here to help me remember these days!

This made me so anxious that it took about 15 minutes to unwind once it was over.

11th Burn Highlights... 

Double Rainbow Madness. Homeslice/Playa Surfers Convergence at the Disorient Art Car Wash.  Sunrise Silent White Procession....where He asked & I said Yes!  Tony & Laura's Wedding Ceremony with Haiku Vows.  Temple Tequila Shots.  Best Cha Cha Party Ever...Last Night A Disco Robot Saved My Life. Otter's Gourmet Grilled Cheese Mash-ups.  Art.  Metropolitain.  Hooping.  Love.  Bliss.  Hologram'd Princess Sandra. Soft Serve Ice-Cream on a Hot Afternoon.  Naj Mahal Communing. 4am Neon Cactus Garden Soccer.  Spontaneous Potluck Dinners.  Homeslice Family Photo & Portraits.  Watching Ops perform in the Fire Conclave.  When The Man KaBoom'd!  The Temple Burn.  North Lake Tahoe (post-burn) Engagement-moon!  And reflecting on it all while soaking in a hot spring somewhere along the 395.

Thank you, Homeslice!  I'm so grateful to be a part of this dynamic family!  YOU are the reason I come back to the Playa year after year.  One week of desert living alongside so many of the people on this planet who I love the most does wonders for my soul.

An extra special shout out goes to Eva and Jimmoi for capturing hundreds of incredible photos of our engagement. We've had the opportunity to share some pics with my parents who were literally brought to tears.  Thank you for making it possible to share those moments with them.
