If you want to destroy my sweater...

The black cable-knit duster had seen better days. It was a cheap acrylic cardigan that I kept in my desk drawer for when it was cold. It was always cold. So, like a ratty old bathroom, I drug this duster around my office. pilled and frayed, the belt long gone, it was black and long and warm. That was, after all, the purpose. Had my Mother been wrong about everything not being a fashion show? But now, armed with a little Christmas money, I purchased a new sweater. Black, to be sure, and cabled as well. It was also cheap and acrylic but thick and warm. The belt stitched onto the side. Buttons! My old duster had no buttons. Already an upgrade. It had a shawl collar instead of a hood but really, outside beckoning for Obi Wan Kenobi (he's my only hope) how often did I need to wear a hood indoors? This was a time for renewal, after all. 2008? I'm so over you.

Maybe I should have named her Bella...

DH thinks that the girl looks like Kristin Stewart from the Twilight movie but that is strictly unintentional. I based her off of one of the first paintings I ever did but using a chiaroscuro technique. Well, I'm no Caravaggio so it's a kiwiscurro technique at best.

The Stranger

Just so you don't think I haven't been working during this holiday season, meet The Stranger. A story on The Moth podcast inspired the background china cabinet of acid green crystal.
If you haven't checked out The Moth, do so.

Japanese Cute Shirt - the remix

Alright, so everyone hated the overlapping except me. (Fine, I still got mine that way so nah) So, here is the remix version. I especially like the red lips.

A new design

So, tell me...is this new design full of win or made of fail?

still working on those pendants

I'm so slow about getting out a new product. I'm just hesitant that perfection is expected. you know what I mean?


Upon request by my little dumpling, I made this anime version of her for her grand re-decoration. It's not really my strong suit but I think it turned out pretty cute.
