Art: Farilla's Valentines....

Finding rad stuff on Etsy.com is not only fun but rewarding.  It's like this niche society of artists and crafters WHO TOTALLY GET ME.  Hence, the following Valentine's Day cards I gifted Farilla.

Farilla's Valentine #1
I F'ing Love You Greeting Card
by sweetperversion

3-D Love:
Farilla's Valentine #2
Anniversary - 3D Glasses
by witandwhistle

The inside of this card was extra awesome with the blue and red grid.  Write you message in black ink and (with your 3-D spectacles in place) said message appears to hover in space!  Mathmagical!

Music: Hermanos Inglesos feat. MeMe - Wanderland

Hermanos Inglesos feat. MeMe - "Wanderland" from Michélé De Feudis on Vimeo.

Perfectly inappropriate.

Art: Star Stuff by Shutterilla

Farilla and I made these last night in our Date-Night Screen Printing Workshop @ Urban Craft Center.  The canvases turned out to be a little more challenging than expected because they have so much give in the (hollow) center.  However, we're really pleased with the prints we pulled.

Wedding: Current Inspiration

Via Weddingnouveau.com

Wedding: I Found My Dress!

After only two days of looking I FOUND MY DRESS! And I found it while my parents were in town so they got to partake in all of the wedding dress shopping hell magic too!

To my surprise, I actually did have "a moment" when I looked at myself in the mirror while dawning one of those gorgeous dresses (3rd Place, below). I totally started tearing up. I don't know if it was the dress so much as the overwhelming feeling that THIS IS HAPPENING. After trying on about 15 gowns I narrowed it down to four. I won't be posting The Winner just yet but I can share with you the runners-up!

4th Place: Adele Weschler Eco-Couture - Sunray
Adele Weschler - Sunray

3rd Place: Adele Weschler Eco-Couture - River

2nd Place: Nicole Miller - HG0013

Maybe it was the lack of oxygen getting to my brain from being clamped into these dress so tightly but, My God, they were stunning!   Regardless, The Winner blows all of these dresses away.  Just you wait....

I happened upon a sale at Rainforest Flora in Torrance yesterday! Yippee! I love me some air plants! The folks running the place were super and answered tons of my silly questions. When people take pride in their work is shows!
