bones, stones, feathers, & such

I recently had the privilege to model some amazing necklaces and hair pieces for a dear friend of mine! Her work is a uniquely gorgeous mix of metals and natural elements! Check out her shop at Bits + Pieces to see more!

Winter weather usually makes my sensitive skin, dry, flaky, red, and so very sad! This winter though I was lucky enough to find a couple of miracle products that have saved my skin!
In one week this took my face (mainly my cheeks) from yuck to smooth and glowing (not kidding!)I wanted something relatively inexpensive, super moisturizing, and all natural. While I didn't intending to purchase a wrinkle cream I'm so very glad I gave it a try.
I'm looking forward to trying more Derma e products!

For my hands and body I have been using another wonderful natural product
Lush's Dream Cream !
(that I purchased form a gift certificate I won from the lovely Ms. Diana @!!!!!)
No more alligator skin here!

bay area

A few shots from a recent bay area trip. I didn't end up with as many photos to document the trip as I would have liked... but oh well. Next time, we either drive during the day up the 101 and enjoy the scenery or we fly & stay in a hotel. Driving all night is no bueno. Nor is crashing at a friends to save money (even though friends are awesome) just to end up sleeping on a hardwood floor.

...create by mental act...

I really want to find a new job, preferably in the library field but it's been slim pickin! In the mean time I need to stay busy and gain experience!

I used to cook a lot. I need to get back in the habit and expand my repertoire.

I have so many half read books in my house. I don't know what my problem is... but I'm going to finish what I started.

I have a strong desire to create and produce. I'm not so sure where to start though. Maybe just sketching & writing. Maybe a zine! Oh yeah, and practicing guitar/bass regularly. I'm not getting anywhere when I only pick it up once a month.

live simply
Sometimes it can be really easy to focus on all the things we don't have and get caught up in consuming lots of crap we don't really need.
I wan to appreciate what I do have, all the things/people that make my life rich.
