Loving Harajuku Lovers shoes!

I am SO in love with the new (affordable!) Harajuku Lovers shoe line!

I picked myself up this pair of Arlandas at Nordstrom a week ago (shoe sale! $74 what a steal!). They were the last pair, 5.5 -- and fit like a glove!

You can get them at by clicking the picture.

Or at (free shipping to & back)

Not only are they cute, they're COMFORTABLE! Super cute TOE & sole print! I stuck on a set of clear Foot Petal Sole Stopperz from Target so that 1) you don't go slip-sliding everywhere, and 2) so you can still see design at the bottom of the shoe -- at least for a little while before they get dirty from walking.

Makeup Brush Roll

Seeing these makeup brush rolls from makes me want to run out to the fabric store so that I can sew these for myself! I so desperately need some!

Winter Dreams

Every time the holidays come around I come back to dreaming my own Cricut and starting a collection of embossing and die-cut machines so that I may embrace artsy craftsy desires.

Joann's sold out of their door buster deal on the Cricut by 5:30am EST for Black Friday! What a steal though! $78... perhaps next year when I actually have a place to put it.

I've been thinking of Christmas gifts this year. What to get for people who have pretty much everything? Nothing. Make your own personal gift. "Etsy" - hand made stuff!

I'm shopping around for some clay right now to make my own personal sculptures, but I need to get this started early if I'm going to make these for my...hmmm... 20+ aunties, cousins, and sisters. Off to the drawing board to make sketches fit for each one!

I made this one back in 2004. Thinking of doing a more Precious Moments style of sculpture for the gifts.
