Golden Fleeceness

I have a small problem. I love fashion. I love seeing the new colors of each season, and the fabrics and textures and all that. Unfortunately, my body isn't compatible with the cuteness on the what is a girl to do? SEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! I had seen a darling gold jacket in Forever 21 ( I really don't belong in there except in the jewelry department, and ok the shoes...) So, I came home and made one meself.

AND when it came to the lining of the collar and sleeves, I had this print in my stash!!!

and of course, I had to make a posy to tack onto the lapel. Now onto making over the last

Subway pretend

I have enjoyed all the Subway art that I am seeing everywhere. (no it's not the sanwich variety...).
And I am slow to get around to doing one. SO I took some time today and cut some pages out of my DI book. I trimmed em down and fed them into my printer.

I have this window that I have used for various things and I thought it would be cute to paste them into the back....

then I cut out some leaf shapes and a coil from more pages and drapped them over the top.

I also crumpled them a bit to make them more leaf like.

Now I need to make a real Subway art with all of our addresses on it. We have had so many addresses that it's gunna take a while...stay tuned.

Onto November

I have always loved November. Some might remark that it is because it is my birthday month. But at this age, birthdays are not so great a thing. The adding of the years that is...but I digress.

I love November because it is the month of Topaz. See that pretty fake stone there in the center? It is a topaz and that is my birth stone.

I was cleaning like mad today and then thought, "It has been too many days since I made something pretty..." So I put the mop away and got out my fixins. And now that I can see this bracelet close up, I notice that I need to do some glue trimming. And since I am wearing the color of topaz tomorrow to church I think I shall wear this too.

Hmmmm, coincidence? I think not.....
