A Week of Projects

Well, my daughter's birthday has passed, and I have survived the princess birthday party without a drop of rum consumed. There was much giggling, screaming (while being chased by little brother~ "The Dread Pirate Rollins"), princessy sparkles, pink frosted cupcakes, and, of course, presents wrapped with big beautiful bows. It was a great day! The Princess loves her desk, and as promised, here are some pictures~

This is a close-up of the edge of the desk. I decided to keep it simple, and not go crazy painting all types of creatures. I had to do it all in one night, so simplicity was key.

Here is t
he Princess, complete with fairy wings and antennae, busy working at her new desk. Pudge had some clear plastic that we covered the top with to protect it and I'm glad we did! Within the first day it was covered with paint and glitter glue! She loves it!

Pudge also finished my jewelry tree! It turned out amazingly beautiful (as I knew it would!) I have decided to leave it the brushed silver instead of painting it, but I am going to put a clearcoat on it for protection. It looks beautiful adorning the top of my bookcase, and I think I may seek out a small raven to perch atop it's branches.

Here is a sneak peek at a few new things coming to my Etsy shop, as soon as I have time to list them! I am busy, busy right now...which is great!!!

"Nocturnal" earrings

"The Fairy's Garden" earrings

I am very much looking forward to my birthday this weekend! The kids will be at grandma and grandpa's house, and Pudge and I have a date at our local micro-brewery for jalepeno pretzels and stout beer. Don't forget to enter the earring give-away, which ends this saturday!

I shall be the first to comment on yer bloggie...

I have the volume, so softly, so very low...I was taken by surprise... and I heard the Lord of the Rings and I did not know why...

But...I fingered it out.

Anyways...fantabilistic jewbelry...
If I ever have any ears...I so would wear one...perhaps two.

But, the most amazing thing to me!...were the Princess at her desk!

It was like looking into a mirror! That is EXACTLY how I look and sit at my drawing desk. UNcanny.

I want an eye ring...

All K all day
