Aaaaand we’re back!

It’s been awhile, ne?

Life just sort of happened. Got a new job to supplement income, got my new place. Other things fell apart, but for the better. Toxicity OUT!!

I realized the aforementioned toxicity I purged in the last month was putting a huge dampener on my creativity, and that I was making things for the sake of making them. Not good. So I took a break, got myself straightened out, and now I feel my muse returning.

I have a much bigger and better work room now and things are slowly getting more organized.

I will still be doing fused glass, and my pieces(some of them, anyway), will be taking a more metaphysical turn. I’m also breaking out the polymer clay again, because I discovered I miss making Goddess dolls and incense burners.

I’m going through my inventory as well, and am planning a huge sale at some point this summer to clear things out!

Last, but certainly not least…I’m planning on applying to become a vendor at the Phoenix Public Market. I’ve wanted to for awhile now, and I finally have the means to make it happen.

There’s more stuff in the works but it’s no fun to reveal it all at once… 😉 Stay tuned!

Clean Slate

Cooler weather is upon us, and now perhaps the bright neons of Spring and Summer and even some of the colorful prints of Fall are starting to seem a bit garish. Fear not!
White is taking center stage as we hit mid-Fall. Clean and classy, white is the perfect transitional tint, providing a fabulous detox and rest for the eyes.
Dusting white eyeshadow along the inner corner of the eye towards the bridge of the nose will make you look more awake and your eyes more open. Avoid the reverse raccoon effect by remembering to blend and keeping application light.
